tag, you're it.

Friday, March 2, 2012

Fellow Canadian blogger Rosa from Flutter Flutter - seriously LOVE her - tagged me in a friendly game of blog tag and I decided to play along... 

For those of you unfamiliar with Rosa's work/blog, just check out this ridiculously awesome & pinspiring DIY pallet coffee table {I'm SO copycatting} - she got some mad skillz that one.

So here are the questions & answers to my Thursday night homework assignment:

1. Are you a coffee or tea drinker?
Neither. I learned early on in university that caffiene has zero effect on me {I guess I'm crazy enough already} and I'm so picky about the temperature and taste strength of my peppermint tea that I can't be bothered to buy or make it anymore. That being said I sometimes wish that I was one of those trendy types who walk into Starbucks sporting their perfect fit riding boots & bug sunglasses where baristas know them - and their - drink by name. I read magazines, I know that venti to-go cups are a must-have fashion accessory for all seasons. Is it weird that I often fantasize about having a coffee addiction or at the very least having a drink order that doesn't sound like I'm 5, "ummm yes I'll have a small, I mean tall hot chocolate with all the toppings... $7.53?! that's my whole allowance".

2. What is your favorite room in your home?
We're currently suffocating living in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home so we don't have many rooms to choose from at the moment. Forced to pick a fave, I'd have to say our kitchen... for now. It was one of the first rooms we tackled as Team Young & Broke and I still love every single one of our choices. If we can survive this, we can survive anything.

3. What is your favorite quote?
How can I possibly choose just one? Today I'm liking...
* $100 my little sister is rolling her eyes right now.

4. What is your favorite pastime?
I think it's pretty obvious that the Dell & I are attached at the hip, but when I'm not computing I enjoy a good stretch, a camping nap, endless hours of sitting crossed legged in used book stores, party planning, crafting and/or playing fauxtographer. One of the funnest afternoons I've ever experienced involved my girl Heather and I picking out props, packing up her land cruiser and pretending to be professional picture takers in the park...
My baby belly vs. her flat stomach never laughed so hard and the final results were impressive considering we're TOTAL amateurs with manual focus lenses.

5. Who is the person you admire the most?
Rosa you're killing me with these questions! My go-to answer has always been Oprah {cue Becca's gag reflex} but I truly admire ALL strong, independent women who are honest, passionate and not afraid to laugh at themselves from time to time.

6. Where is your favorite place to go on holidays?
Being a red head with with whiter than white skin and an aversion to too hot temperatures you wouldn't expect me to say Mexico, but here I am saying Mexico. Trev & I have been 3 times - twice when I was pregnant so the all-inclusive promise of non-stop cervezas was a bit lost on me - but I.love.it.there. As long as I have my 60+ SPF sunscreen and a large body of water to cool off in {ie. ocean or party pool} I'm a HAPPY traveller and can't wait to return with the kids in tow.

7. What is your favorite food?
Dessert.

8. How do you recharge and energize yourself?
{a} spend time alone
or
{b} utilize the creative side of my brain... can't remember if it's the right or left? 

9.What is your favorite song?
I use to be big time into dance, I know what you're thinking - "with those thighs?" - but once upon a time I was a dancer and a fairly good one judging by a few of the trophies I got tucked away in the basement. Even though the point shoes have LONG since been retired, I still feel music rather than hear it and basically any song Stacey Tookey from 'So You Think You Can Dance' uses - or would use - for her choreography {she's Canadian eh?} I like LOVE:
"Mad World" - Gary Jules
"Jar of Hearts" - Christina Perri
"Turning Tables" - Adele
"My Immortal" - Evanescence
"I Found A Reason" - Cat Powers
"Hide & Seek" - Imogen Heap

10. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
I just finished tantruming over the never-ending saga of dog hair which is why I'm choosing CATS tonight. That being said, this photo of Maddison as a puppy is slowly making me come around...
can you say, "awwwwwwwwwww"?

11. Who is someone you’d like to meet?
Again I'd say Oprah - gawd I miss her SO MUCH this mat leave - but since I've met a couple celebrities in my lifetime including: Michael Flatley {aka 'Lord of the Dance'}, Akon and Ben Affleck, I'm thinking that would be a wasted opportunity; I get much too star struck around famous people to say anything other than "OMG" on repeat. Actually that's not entirely true, I had ol' Benny {pre-Jennifer Garner} singing, "Leaving on a Jet Plane" with me on the set of Reindeer Games... didn't see that movie? don't worry you didn't miss much anything.
** And to those of you who are about to email me information regarding Oprah's new channel OWN, thank you. Unfortunately our basic cable bundle doesn't care that Oprah has her OWN network {2nd pun of the week, I'm on a roll} and that I'm missing out on her greatness. **
 
Okay onto the 2nd part of this challenge... I'm tagging eleven highly entertaining bloggers:
Should you choose to accept this mission... here are your 11 questions:
 
1. Name two tv shows that you must watch every week or record to watch later.
2. What one food do you never get tired of?
3. What is the oldest item you own?
4. If you had to pick one place in your town to bring a tourist, where would you take them?
5. Are you the only, oldest, middle or youngest sibling in your family?
6. Do you collect anything?
7. What's your middle name? Is there any special meaning behind it?
8. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
9. Celebrity look alike? Who are you compared to most?
10. What's one item on your "bucket list"? 
11. (a) What would your family and friends say is one of your best qualities? (b) What would they say is one of your worst?

  1. I LOVE the pictures of you in the park! Let's just say that I was umm...less photogenic when I was pregnant. Almost all of my belly photos were taken in our living room...oh and after Hubs and my brother-in-law decided that I could waddle my way around Niagara Falls at 8 months pregnant (and 85 degrees). Swollen doesn't begin to describe it!
