7 things that you probably don't know about me

A few weeks ago Cindy from hungrygirlporvida (a beautiful food blog by the way) passed along a little blog award to me and this is how it goes. I am to tell you, my friends, 7 seven things that you probably don't know about me. So here it goes:

1. I have lived in 7 different cities/towns in my life. I've lived in Ottawa, Saint John NB, Halifax, Montreal, Kingston ON, Perth ON and Hamilton ON. Soon I will be adding an 8th town to that list as we have accepted a transfer to move to the Yukon!
2. At one point I had 5 body piercings! My eyebrow, nose, lip (labrette), belly button and the cartilage in my upper ear!
3. At the age of 15 years I lived alone with my sisters. That's right, no parents. At 18 I lived in a house with a bunch of friends (that didn't last long).
4. I am extremely and I mean extremely terrified of bats. I blame my mother for that one. It's a long story.
5. My perfect job would involve teaching children's and adult art workshops and running a breakfast/lunch cafe by the sea. Art on the walls, home made food, home grown food, yummy lattes.
6. When I was 16 I could play the acoustic guitar pretty well. I'm sad that I let it go.....maybe it's time to start up again.
7. At one point in my life I would ONLY listen to hip hop. I have since opened my horizons but still love me some good old school.
8. I cannot for the life of me watch scary movies. They haunt my dreams and I stay up for weeks after watching them. I much prefer a sappy love story with a happy ending.
9. I have a very multicultural family. We have the following backgrounds in and amongst our family members: Irish, Italian, Filipino, Lebanese, Ecuadorian, Jamaican, First Nations, West Indian, African Canadian.....and I'm probably missing some.
10. My dream is to live in a cottage by the sea one day.

So that was fun! Now I have to pass on the torch to 7 bloggers. Please excuse me if you have already received this one (it's been making it's rounds). I'm asking:

Sweta at Besame Mucho

Caroline at Coeur de La

Vanessa at Flourish

If anyone else wants to play along, please do so! A note for everyone-just drag and save the Kreativ Blogger award button above and include it in your post.
Have fun! xox


  1. I really enjoyed learning these things about you. We have a few things in common: I also used to have a pierced nose, and I only listened to hip hop all throughout high school.
    Thank you for sharing! It's so fun to learn new things about people. :)

  2. ooooh I would come to your cafe by the sea, sounds lovely :)

  3. running a breakfast/lunch cafe by the sea sounds amazing. :)

  4. I think I remember you with an eyebrow ring...were you friends with Jackie then?

  5. It's lovely to get to know more about you. Wow I am amazed you lived alone with your sisters at such a young age. I definitely think you should take up the guitar again. I've always wanted to learn...
    Will be working on my list... thanks for the "award"!

  6. lovely! it's so good to learn more about you. thank you for passing it to me; you are ever so sweet. I'll work on my list now and let you know;)


  7. That was fun. Of course I loved that you lived in Halifax. Just sayin' ;)

  8. I really love reading these lists! I have to tell you, I think bats are cute and I quite love a good scary movie (not blood and guts though!!).
    The Yukon sounds like such a beautiful place to me. Good luck with the big move!

  9. Yayyy! Thanks, Johanna! No, I haven't received this award. Yayyy!

    And I love your list!


Oh goody....I love comments!
