Twelve Fun Facts

1. I am addicted to coffee. I have a Keurig machine her at home that I just adore and I can barely drive past a Tim Horton's or Starbucks without stopping.

2. I am a VERY proud Canadian. I love my country and will talk about how great it is for hours. I even have a maple leaf tattooed  on my right ankle.

3. I am a knitter. I started during my mat leave..same as blogging...and like blogging it has become a major love.

4. I taught Grad 7 and 8 for 7 years before I moved to Grade 4 last year. I don't miss it!

5. Last year was the first time in my teaching career I ever taught was super scary but I have discovered that I like it.

6. I have a puggle. A pug and a beagle mix. He's pretty awesome.

This is a picture from last January when my baby was just born.

7. I am a curler. I used to competitively curl and thought I might try for the Olympics. Now it's few and far between and just for fun.

8. Football is my favourite sport to watch. 

9. I will read almost anything because I always have to have a book on the go! My favourites are historical fiction and fantasy.

10. My mom and my sister are two of my very best friends and I would rather hang out with them then almost anyone.

11. Being a mom is the hardest and most wonderful thing I have ever done. Every day is a stress-filled blessing....but look at this face!
