You'll also hear her talk about her fur baby Tilly, a golden doodle and sometimes the only one who will listen to her. Amy loves ghostly stuff , HGTV, the American Horror Story series, SVU ,criminal minds and So You Think You Can Dance are also shows that intrigue her. She loves a cold Moscow mule and hot yoga (not both at the same time because she might spill her mule). She's crafty and enjoys repurposing furniture, loves antique shops and flea markets and is terrified of clowns!
