HIDDEN TALENT

I'm an avid knitter. I don't like to use patterns, and I can knit up a baby sweater in no time. My son [Kieran, 2] has a few sweaters that I made for him.

CELEBRITY CRUSH

I had a big crush on James Taylor. I once wrote a letter to him and Carly Simon offering to be their nanny when I was 13. I thought I'd take care of their kid and just listen to their music all the time.

SHE'S ADDICTED TO

I must have coffee every day. I just learned about the red eye. It's coffee with a shot of espresso in it. When you work and are a parent, you're always craving sleep. The red eye helps!

MAKES HER CRINGE

Snakes! I've always been not happy around any snake. I leave the room when I see one.

FAVORITE CHORE

Using my Dirt Devil Hand Vac! I literally love it. It's easy, quick, and it does the job. There is something very satisfying about vacuuming.

GUILTY PLEASURE

Massages. I wish I had time for one massage a day. But I will settle for one a month. If I lost all my money and could only afford one thing in the world, it would be spent on a massage. There is nothing like a full body massage!
