Accent: Kind of a hodge podge. I say ya'll, but pronounce room more like rum like a northerner. And I knew (and lived with) quite a few people from Mass while in college and adopted the use of "wicked". My British friend Becky says I sound like a real American, like in the movies.

Favorite Cologne: Clinique Happy
Gold or Silver: Silver or white gold
Handbag I carry most often: My new, hot pink Dickies tote. Plenty of room for all my stuff plus some diapers and a book to keep the kiddies entertained. I have an amazing Coach bag that was given to me for my birthday two years ago, but I'm terrified to get it dirty.
