I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the Lake Michigan shore. I still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. I moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College, fell in love with GR and have been here ever since! (Go Beer City, USA!)

I’m a big fan of crime TV, the ’90s (scrunchies! “Saved By the Bell!”), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really, really love it, OK?), reading, people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Relive the 2015-2016 Season with NFL Bad Lip Reading Part 2

I talked to my mom yesterday before the Super Bowl: "I'm just glad that this is it. No more football for a few months. Thank. God." The relief in her voice was evident.
