10 Things you probably don’t know about me.

Seeing as this is my space – you should probably know a little bit about me.


I don’t know how to ride a bike. (In my parents defense – they tried to teach me. Every few years as a child I would get either a new bike or accessories for the one that would sit untouched from the years before.) Here is my 5 year old theory  on why I didn’t need to learn – it’s very simple. Everyone I know has at least 1 scar on their body when they fell off the bike – I don’t need that and I can get around just fine without a bike.

I cannot sleep in shorts. Nope. Not going to happen. When I sleep, I cocoon myself in the blankets no matter the temperature or season. I don’t really know why but I have never been comfortable with my bare legs against the sheets and blanket. I will toss and turn all night long if I don’t have PJ pants on.

I live in a small town (not a city) with a population of about 30,000 and I LOVE it. Both my boyfriend and I grew up in Toronto, Ontario along the hustle and bustle of busy people, inconsistent streetlights with gridlock traffic, and clutter. We had enough of it and set our sights on moving North and it has been amazing since.

My closet is organized by color. Weird I know and I don’t even want to elaborate on this. It is just something I have always done and probably always will. Moving on.

♥ My all time favorite junk food is Rockets. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Anytime. For this reason, they are only allowed in our house around Halloween and for some reason, kids that come to the door never seem to get any and I end up with them all at the end of the night.. strange?

♥ I have watched every episode of The Bachelor / Bachelorette. Bachelor & Chill is real for me and one of my not-so-guilty pleasures. No matter how contrived, scripted, unrealistic the show might be, I love the possibility of a love story, however it happens.

I am allergic to apples. Well, mostly just the skin but I stay away from them in all shapes and forms now to be safe. There is only 1 brand of apple juice I can safely drink. I wish I knew how amazing eating a candy apple is!

I can resit every word of The Devil Wears Prada and often my mother and I will exchange text messages using only lines from the movie. It’s not weird.

♥ I have never had a cavity. I am both shocked and proud of this! Lets hope I am not jinxing myself by putting it out into the world like this.

♥ I can’t whistle to save my life. I used to be really good at this growing up and when I had my braces removed as a teenager- my ability to whistle went with them.

There you have it… 10 things you probably didn’t know about me. Unless you’re my mom (Hi Mom!)
