7 things about me...


1.  I have a 6 year old son named Carson - he is the most fun and most wonderful part of my life. Funny, since I was always the "most likely to not have a kid" kinda girl. He is literally my favourite person to spend time with.


2.  I live with my boyfriend of 4 years, he used to work for me at my marketing firm - so I guess I was "one of those kinda bosses" - kidding :) We both were going through messy divorces, and just clicked. He is fab and treats my boy like gold. He also teaches him things about things like Hip Hop and James Bond. Sigh...

3.  I grew up in Ontario, Canada and now live on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It is beautiful and hardly snows. I rub it in to my family in Ontario ALL THE TIME.

4.   I love ALL kinds of music - depending on my mood I love everything from rap to classical music. I love how music can cheer you up, make you feel worse or remind you of a good/bad memory. We always have music on in the house. My son knows the words to WAY too many pop songs :)

5.  I LOVE to cook - I am a perfectionist so cooking leads to frustration a lot. I do try and make something new every week for the boys. I have a gluten allergy, so I try and remake gluten filled foods friendly for my tummy, but still yummy for the boys.

6.  I am making an effort this year to be more girly. I haven't ever spent a lot of time with my hair, makeup, fashion - but in the last year, I have made HUGE changes and spend more time trying to take care of myself. I even grew my hair out with extensions and get my hair and nails done once a week. I love how I feel when I have my act together...

7.  I LOVE to stay home. I like my things and the boys around me. I am always more happy to stay home then go out. I am trying to work on this as it makes me a little anti-social.
