I am Laura, born and raised in Hooksett, NH. I am thirty-five and have been a part of the Morning Buzz for fourteen years now! I started in radio when I was nineteen on a show called Sports Soundoff on WGIR 610AM. I have been married to a great guy from Hooksett named Jeff since 2006. We have two sons. Parker was born in 2011. He was 8lbs 8oz and is the most wonderful boy in the world. He's very loveable and affectionate! Dylan was born in 2015. He was 7lbs 9oz and looked just like his older brother. My boys are my life! These two kids keep me on my toes. They make every day an adventure, sometimes a difficult adventure, but I can't imagine a moment without them. Parker is my learner, he needs to know everything and loves math, science, reading. He plays basketball, soccer and is a Cub Scout. Dylan is my tough and funny guy. He is a class clown, always loves to get a laugh and butts and farts might be the funniest thing on Earth! He gets hurt all the time, but he is so tough! Dylan plays soccer, loves swimming and does anything he can to keep up with Parker!
I love to be outside and obviously spending time with my boys. I cheer for the Pats, Sox and Celtics (I am not much of a hockey or nascar fan, but I am trying to learn). My beverages of choice used to be nice cold beers and Jack Daniels (on the rocks). As I am getting older and the lack of sleep with the little ones I am happy with a glass of pinot grigio or any red wine. (Then I am out like a light! Sometimes I still miss those days of drinking and not having to wake up). I have a love/hate relationships with home projects! I am a diy'er! I feel so great when I complete something and am so proud of work I have done. I am an organizer, a planner and very independent person.
Favorite foods: I love eggplant parmasean and shephards pie and for dessert, cheesecake. I enjoy relaxing at home, we get up way to early to be out too late on work nights.
As a family we take in a lot of music festivals! It's a tradition to go to Newport Folk Festival every year! Parker hasn't missed one yet! We love music and hope that they enjoy it as much as us. My favorite singer of all time is Janis Joplin. I even had a cat named Joplin growing up. Some of my favorite bands are Ryan Montbleau Band, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Spoon, Lettuce, Brett Dennen, and Mumford and Sons, John Mayer, Nathaniel Ratliff, Anderson East . . .. There are so many more, but I can't name them all!
For things I don't like, hmmm . . . I try to be very upbeat and not to hate too much, but like everyone I have my pet peeves. I can not stand cocky, macho types who think they are better than everyone. I don't like when I have a "toe wedgie" (when your socks get wedged between your toes). It absolutely will make me go mental. I have had to pull over to fix it on the side of the road!
I guess that is all I will give you for now. I am just a normal NH girl! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
