Julie Jacobs’ Bio
Hometown: Janesville, Wisconsin (Go Parker Vikings!)
Julie’s Email: email@example.com
- My adoring husband who really does like country music; Our hilarious son, Kieran, who is 4 and our baby girl Cora who is 1; our german shepherd Toby, and kitties Bella and Murphy; camping; watching the Green Bay Packers; NASCAR (go Matt Kenseth!!); visiting with friends and family; grilling out; traveling; visiting historic sites and museums (I am a history nut!)
- Food: We try to eat pretty healthy in our household, but I love Italian, Mexican, and cherry cheesecake! I enjoy a good gyro too, and of course pizza. With the cold weather here, I use my crock pot a lot, as you all should know!
- Movies: Just about anything with Tom Cruise in it; classic Disney movies (The Little Mermaid is my all time fave!); classic 80′s movies like “Pretty in Pink”; romantic comedies, thrillers (but NOT horror films, ACK!); and of course, historical movies like Glory, The Patriot, etc.
- TV: Downton Abbey! Ghost Hunters on Sci-Fi; GLEE; Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives; Deadliest Catch; American Pickers; Antiques Roadshow; Celebrity Apprentice; Dancing With the Stars; The Voice; American Idol (sort of); and I still occasionally watch a few soaps, Young & The Restless and Days of Our Lives. And I admit it, I love Little House on the Prairie. I have seen every episode at least 75 times, no kidding.
- Pet Peeves: People who pull out in front of me on the highway when there is NOBODY behind me!! And especially when they don’t get up to speed when doing so! GGRRRR!
- Quote: “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
