Annie was born and raised in Northwest Indiana with her younger sister and parents in Hammond. After spending some time out of the area chasing the radio dream she has moved back to start a family with her two main men: Jager the mutt and fiance Rob. When she is not on the air Annie enjoys cheering her favorite Chicago sports teams (Da Bears, Da Bulls, And Da Sox), hiking, and exploring new fairs and festivals! (Anything Deep Fried she's in!) Annie cannot wait to share her life with you on air and is excited to be back in the Region doing what she loves!
There is this campaign going around on Facebook this month that has you listing what you are thankful for everyday as we count down to Thanksgiving. I know I am a little late, but I thought we'd start this morning! Today I am thankful for all those who fought for me to have the right to vote in yesterday's election. I don't care what side of the political spectrum you land on... if you voted, thank you.
Yesterday, was the first time I voted in person and I got pretty emotional. Could you imagine someone telling you you couldn't vote because of the color of your skin or because you were female? This country is great because we all have a voice. Yes, some voices may be heard louder then others... but on election day, we are all equal.
Now you may call me naive, but that in itself is reason to be thankful.
Yesterday, I watched my mom sew lollipops on a sweater on her way to making the best costume.... Sunshine and Lollipops! Ya, I know corny, but she was so excited to tell her anything different! How much are you going to spend on your Halloween costume this year? New statistics are out that say we spend waaaaaaaay too much money on the holiday!

I'm dealing with the worst stomach ache this morning! Ugh, I hate starting the day off that way! After looking back on what I ate yesterday, it's not hard to see why:
While At Work:
A V8 Energy Drink
3 Mini Chocolate Donuts
Fast Forward To 2pm:
Bowl of Beef Stew with Bread
Random Apple Slice from my mother
Fast Forward To 7pm:
Whoops forgot dinner... let's see hmmm a peanut energy bar and chocolate milk from the gas station!
Drank a bottle of water then off to bed!
Ewww no wonder I could never keep a food journal like some dieting plans ask you to do! This is kind of embarrassing!!! Might wanna work on changing that!
This weekend was by far the most restful I've had in FOREVER!!! How was yours? I may slowly be becoming an adult... I mean on Friday I was in bed by 10:30!!!
However, Saturday we had a chance to meet with our awesome photographer Mark and shoot our engagement pics. The day couldn't have been better at Lincoln Park Zoo. He sent us over some previews and now I cannot wait till the end of the week when we get the rest!!! Check them out:
After sleeping the rest of the day away Saturday (literally slept from 4pm-10am the next day), we spent Sunday exploring some possible future neighborhoods on bike! It was awesome! Cannot wait to resume the house hunt today and find a place! Stay tuned.
