Meet my family

Meet my family. Since I’ll be blogging about them, you might as well meet them. They are my favorite people. 

C.K., my husband

8374766737_850f70508c_bHe is from the deep South. We are a pair of star-crossed lovers if there ever was one. But at the intersection of my Long Island fabulousness and his Southern uppityness is love. He is super talented. Check out his work here and here and here.

Likes: Hendrick’s Gin, his Xbox One, drawing, buying & selling camera parts

Dislikes: not having time to draw, my nagging, people forgetting the punctuation in his name

Favorite Movie: Jaws

Shortterm Goal; get food from the baby

IMG_0401Misha, C.K.’s parrot (a.k.a. the bane of my existence)

Likes: C.K., sitting on the laundry pile, fresh fruit, his enormous eyesore of a cage, seeds, cheese

Dislikes: having an anxiety disorder, me, when the pug barks, when he doesn’t get cheese

Goal: sit on C.K.’s shoulder ALL THE TIME

Me and Mug

Dr. Mags, my sister

She moved to Austin and became the caboose on the Sample family crazy train. We love her to pieces.

Likes: sleeping in, Austin food trucks, long walks in the park (<—she really does like to walk in the park)

Dislikes: studying for the boards, not sleeping in

Favorite Book Series: Harry Potter

“Desert Island” Author: C.S. Lewis (<–She made me add this.)

He retired from engineering just in time to help with the arrival of Darcy. He called himself “the Doula.”

Likes: Movies starring Dwayne Johnson, Scuba diving, doing favors for everyone, mowing the lawn, good scotch

Dislikes: Traffic, using punctuation on facebook

She’s a fourth grade teacher who gets a manicure every Friday without fail and keeps an impeccably neat house.

Likes: Dominating in board games, her grandchildren, buying clothes, doing the laundry

Dislikes: any type of food that’s not Italian, a messy house, my unwillingness to iron any shirts

Cocktail of Choice: Cosmopolitan (She may not have invented it but if you ask her, she perfected it.)
