Andrea is the youngest of 5 children in the Langston family. She & Jamey have been married for 21 years. They have 4 boys, Zak 18, Nate 16, Simon 13 & Noah 11. Andrea works in accounting for a foundation. She has lived all around San Diego county and plans to stay there.
Andrea says that she doesn't have any hobbies (per say)... she enjoys spending time with her family & dating her husband (especially now that her kids are old enough to stay home by themselves). She also enjoys hanging out with her girlfriends. Shopping is one of her most favorite things to do, especially with money, but she doesn't mind window shopping either. She has been known to like grocery shopping (but that was back when they were broke & that was the only kind of shopping she got to do). She loves the beach & the sun. She could go there everyday & never get sick of it (although now that she is older she keeps checking for skin cancer)...She also enjoys sitting on the couch & watching a good movie with her family.
She says that she is pretty boring. She has no aspirations to skydive, bungee jump or ride motorcycles (sounds like me)-in fact she barely looks forward to flying on an airplane to get somewhere.
