Getting to Know Me

Hello friends!  Happy Canadian Thanksgiving.  I hope everyone enjoyed time with family and is rested after stuffing your goblet with a delicious home-cooked meal.

With the growth of this little blog from something I only shared with family and close friends to sharing with new friends all over the world, I thought it was about time I reintroduce myself.  Last week I was nominated for two blog awards and so I thought that answering the questions I was asked would be a great way to do it.

So, without further ado,

1// Beer or wine?
I absolutely hated beer before we moved to Alaska and would have picked wine any day.  But, now I've kind of done a total 180 - from not drinking beer at all, to loving one of the strongest beers, IPA.

2// Do you prefer a night out or a night in?
I'm a homebody.  My ideal night in would be having friends over for drinks and dinner, followed by game night. Catch Phrase anyone?! 

3// Describe yourself in 3 words.
Daughter. Sister. Wife.  

4// Would you rather give up Internet or tv for a month assuming you can't watch tv online and can't get internet on your phone.
TV.  We did without for an entire summer and I was perfectly fine with that.

5// If you change one thing about your childhood, what would it be?
I had the perfect childhood.  My parents were extremely supportive and encouraged me to follow my dreams. 

6// Have you ever broken any bones?
Only fingers and toes from doing stupid things like jumping off swings when I was a kid.

7// What has surprised you the most about the blogging world?
That this little blog, which I started to chronicle our Alaskan adventures for family and friends, has grown so much.  The blog world is extremely supportive.

8// Do you shower at night or in the morning?
I'm out the door at 6:45am every morning.  Already waking up at 6am is pushing it, so definitely a night showerer.

9// What's your favourite sport to watch?
Duh, hockey!

10// What are you up to this weekend?
This past weekend my sister and I traveled 3 hours north of Toronto to Haliburton for a girlfriend's beautiful wedding, then I had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner at my father-in-laws. This coming weekend my parents are coming to town and Steve's hockey season officially kicks off so I plan on cheering him on with a huge crowd of family and friends.

11// Are you a dog or cat person?
Total dog person.  Believe it or not, our family didn't get our first dog until  I was 21!  And now we also have a mouse, so I don't think that would work too well with a cat.

12// What is your dream job?
Growing up I was determined to be a Marine Biologist.  I've been told this was a dream of many.  However, I stayed on track, graduated with a Marine Bio degree and am now using my experience in school and past jobs as an Educator at an aquarium.  I would say I'm livin' it.

13// If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would love to be able to fly, or snap my fingers and be in a new place.  I'm really getting sick of all the driving I've done over the past 6 months.

14// What is your most attractive feature?
I've been told I have nice eyes?!?  They may be very blue, but I'm also as blind as a bat.

15// What is one city would want to see before you die?
I have many places on my bucket list.  If I had to pick a city, it'd be Paris and if I had to pick an adventure, it'd be an African safari.

16// What was your worst subject in high school?
Physics, and in university too.

17// What is your favorite accessory?
My husband!  Does that count?  Ok, since it's fall, I'm currently loving scarves.

18// What is your least favorite color and why?
Blue.  It's the color of lakes and oceans and that makes me happy.

19// How would you describe your fashion style?
Lacking.  I don't really have a style. The only times I really dress up are on weekends when I have some place to be, and even that recently has been slacking.

20// What is one thing you love about blogging?
Sharing my adventures and meeting new friends!


And I obviously can't hit publish on this post without sharing some pictures from my beautiful friend's perfect wedding day...

Have a sunny week! photo marsignature_zpsfb974fa3.jpg

  6. Catch Phrase is the best!

    Hoping you had a great weekend and that Steve won his game!!

  7. I think it's funny that Canadians call it "Canadian Thanksgiving," at least in blog land. I hope you guys just say "Happy Thanksgiving" to other Canadians, right? :) Also, yes, a husband does count as an accessory. :)
