11 Random Things About Me

1. On January 5th I went dairy free for la bebe. She has a dairy sensitivity and I'm still nursing her. It's been tough going without cheese but I really don't miss anything else!

2. I love Harry Potter. Like, am completely obsessed. I have a HP tattoo.

3. I love painted nails but I almost never paint mine.

4. My husband and I spent 14 days in my car, together 24/7, and didn't kill each other. Ha!

5. Also during the above road trip (the move from AK to GA) we drove through Canada in under 42 hours. It was the craziest two days ever and I'm pretty sure we set some sort of record!

6. My dream destination is France. I'm a bit of a francophile.

7. I moved to Alaska right after I graduated from college because I had a dream about it my sophomore year. It lived up to the dream.

8. My husband and I are avid geocachers.

Caching during our honeymoon in Talkeetna, AK
9. I originally majored in Art. I quickly realized, however, that although I had the passion, I did not have the talent.

10. At one point during college I was apprenticing to be a piercer. I bit off a little more than I could chew and had to pick between the apprenticeship and continuing my college education- college won.

11. I was once hiking by myself in Alaska and came within 5 feet of a black bear. He happily munched on his berries and ignored me. I nearly peed myself.

This was at the beginning of the hike, pre-bear 
Stephanie's 11 questions for me to answer

1. What is your all time favorite cartoon?
I love any of the old school cartoons. Yogi Bear, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Tom and Jerry. New cartoons are crap!

2. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A veterinarian.

3. What is one house hold item you could not live without?
It feels like I do 50 loads of laundry every week so I'm going to have to say the washer and dryer (okay, that's two items, sue me).

4. What is your least favorite (or most hated) food?
I really not picky, at all, but ground beef is not my favorite form of protein.

5. What is your favorite sports team?
Sports? I don't really follow any sports. I enjoy a good hockey game but I don't have a team. I guess I would say the Aces, if I had to pick.

6. Are you a dog or a cat person?
Cat! I love my little Asshole Wally.

7. Do you have a favorite quote?
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on." Robert Frost.

8. What do you never leave home without?
Chapstick, wallet, diapers for la bebe. 

9. Harry Potter or Twilight?
This should be obvious given my previous list. Harry Potter all the way.

10. Do you have a pet peeve? If so, what is it?
A million. One is that I hate it when people pick the nail polish off their fingernails. The sound gives me the willies. 

11. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, famous or not, who would it be? 
Alton Brown. I love him!

  2. OH! the box appeared! haha Ok since I told you I already played along I thought I would pick one of your questions to answer....

    4. Do you buy any snacks at the movie theater? If so, which ones?

    :) I SMUGGLE my own snacks in! lol I bring air popped popcorn & a tootsie pop normally. But I have been known to toss in some dried apricots or a piece of fresh fruit on occasion.

  3. Ah, France. I'm with you, no joke. I ask Carlos if we can move there at least once a month! I also ask if we can move to Toronto, Providence or the UK. He says he loves Minneapolis and since I love him, here I stay :) Thanks for the fun get-to-know you post!

  4. Awesome!

    Tracey- I take my own water. No way am I going to pay $5 for a 20 ounce bottle of water. Highway robbery! I used to get popcorn though. Oh movie popcorn, mmmmmm. Can't eat it anymore, even if I had time to go to the movies, which I don't. Haha.

    Jen- I don't even need to move there, I just want to visit! I doubt I remember anything language-wise from my high school and college classes but I'd love to try.
