Hobbies: My #1 hobby is my husband, Mark Vern Ostrander, the love my life. Our lives are kind of crazy so I cherish any spare moment I get to spend with him! I also love cycling and spinning (on a bike, not in circles) and I’d love to bike across America someday! Woo-hoo! I also LOVE to travel and have visited over 20 different countries. One of my favorite things to do in my spare/when I should be sleeping time is upcycling and repurposing things to make or do something new! If you’re not exactly sure what I mean, come over for a cup of coffee sometime and I’ll show you some of my projects (:

Favorite Music: I’m a big fan of fresh, acoustic worship. I also like Indie, Folk, Crazy Frog, Hampton the Hamster, Johnny Cash, The Muppets, and anything with really ringin’ harmonies.

Favorite Restaurant: B-Bop’s & Buffalo Wild Wings (even though my favorite food is Casey’s breakfast pizza! Mmmmmmmmmm…)

Favorite Sports Teams: Cubs, Bears, Hawkeyes

Dream Vacation: Backpacking across Europe (:
