29 QuestionsHelloSunshine_Icecream

1. Who are you named after? Meghan was a name my parents liked – I think they had an acquaintance with a daughter named Meghan and they went with it.

If I had a daughter, she would of had the middle name Sarah because Sarah and I made a promise that we’d name our daughter’s after each other. Sarah’s daughter is Libby Meghan. So my daughter would of been named after Sarah, my grandmother and me… Are you still with me? Lets move on…

say what?

I walk David to school everyday and I often bring my earphones so I can listen to a podcast on my way home. The other morning, as we were getting ready to head out the door, David asked me if I was bringing my earphones so I can listen to Justin Bieber.

Um, no. Justin is for running.

His comment made me wonder… what does my child think about me?

So I asked him.

M. What do I do?

D. You work from home (more prying) you shop online (more prying) you make stuff for Needham (getting hotter, I am on the Board of Directors for the after-school daycare and do design work for the centre… more prying) you are a writer… Yes, I do dabble with that.

After several more questions, I realized we were not getting anywhere good.

Point is. How well do we know each other?

I found this fun game online: 17 Questions with Emily and Alina and thought it’d be fun to answer the questions too.

Who else wants to join in? I will answer and you answer back in the comment window below!

  1. Hottest Brad Pitt role: I’m not a huge Brad Pitt fan… He’s good but he’s never been on my Freebie 5 list. So hottest role is hard to answer. Favourite role: True Romance. However, Christian Slater out-hots him.
  2. Strange talent: I have poor blood circulation in my hands so I can touch hot stuff. I can also turn my toes in and my legs out, which is opposite of most… These are all more like defects than talents. So I will also throw in that I have an excellent perception of measurement. My Communication Technology teacher told me.
  3. Favourite indulgent beauty process: Pedicures.
  4. Least favourite indulgent beauty process: Massages. Do massages count? I am not a fan. Manicures because they’re pointless for me – it only last a few hours.
  5. Pink or red lipstick: I rarely wear lipstick so tinted gloss for the win.
  6. Go-to coffee order: Black with a hint of dairy if it’s within distance.
  7. Current celebrity style icon: Michelle Williams, Diane Keaton, Anna Kendrick, Kara Goucher (runner), Joanna Goddard (blogger), Rey (from Star Wars)
  8. Pizza topping: Mushrooms, garlic, arugula, onion, buffalo mozzarella
  9. Worst habit: Playing with my hair which is why I keep it tied up most of the time.
  10. Vacation style: See everything or do nothing: See everything, no doubt about it. I am not one for relaxing when there are things to do and places to see.
  11. Sweet food kryptonite: Chocolate.
  12. Salty food kryptonite: Popcorn? Tortilla chips? I can take it or leave it.
  13. Beauty thing you never do: Curl my eyelashes.
  14. Thing you could never have enough of: Running clothes
  15. Favourite internet acronym: ha / k / yah! / wholly! (spelt this way)
  16. Things others would be most surprised to learn about each other: I’d be surprised but really happy if I get 5 replies. Game on.
  17. Favourite thing about the other person: You played too! Hint.

the mondayest tuesday ever

Tuesday after Labour Day be like…


That is the first photo I saw on Instagram when I woke up this morning. To brighten the blues, I found this (or that) online and thought it would be fun to play along. The first 18 questions are directly from them but added two more because that’s how I roll.

Let me know if you agree or disagree:

  1. Chocolate or Vanilla?
    Chocolate. But vanilla beats white chocolate. Make sense?
  2. Innie or Outtie?
    Neither, belly buttons are gross.
  3. Hot, Hot Summer or Snowy Winter?
    Hot summer then late spring then early fall then early winter but never late winter or November.
  4. Save or Spend?
    Spend impulsively but very capable of squirrelling away money for travel.
  5. Elliptical or Treadmill?
    I prefer being outside but I recently inherited a tdreadmill and plan to use it this winter when the going gets tough and icy.
  6. Banana or Apple?
    Banana beats apple unless in a pie.
  7. Morning or Night?
    Morning! I love being the first up and I rarely lounge around. By 3:00 pm, I am toast.
  8. Love or Money?
    Love. But I love money too.
  9. Lip Balm or Lipstick?
    I rarely wear either but a tinted lip balm would take the win.
  10. Butt or Boobs?
    Tough. I hate my big butt but I am grateful for my small boobs so I will say small boobs.
  11. Alone or with others?
    Alone… probably because I have become very familiar with solitude from working at home, alone for +7 years. I like small crowds, minimal chaos and dogs… but not the yappy ones.
  12. Coffee or Tea?
  13. Straight or Curly?
    Straight fries and straight hair but the occasional beachy-wave is awesome.
  14. Three Squares or Graze All Day?
    Three meals… especially breakfast.
  15. Right-handed or left-handed?
  16. Beach or Mountains?
    Beach – fresh or salty.
  17. Mac or PC?
    MAC. Who would say PC?
  18. Shy or Outgoing?
    I am shy but I would like to be outgoing… however (see #11) I don’t like crowds so why do I need to be outgoing?
    * * *
  19. Manual or Automatic?
  20. Dinner or Dessert? Dinner… At a funeral I will always hover around the egg sandwiches – never the dessert tray. Always.

Your turn!
