Hey, I'm Carly! I've been getting up at 2:30 a.m. for the last 13 years to wake up with you and I wouldn't have it any other way! Before moving to Boise, I was born and raised just south of Salt Lake City. I have fond memories of Idaho growing up because my Dad is from Pocatello and we would travel to Grangeville nearly every Thanksgiving to visit my great-grandparents. When I told my family I was moving to the Treasure Valley, my Dad gave me his blessing by saying "My heart is shaped like Idaho!" I fell in love with Boise from the moment I rolled into town. In my free time I love discovering new restaurants in town, cooking, shopping, watching reality TV, and spending time with my two beautiful children, 11 year old Boston and 9 year old Jocelyn. Catch me on MIX 106 from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Fridays.
