101 Things About me

  1. I am obsessed with the colour pink. It really does make me feel better and makes your skin look better. I just love it.
  2. Many of my friends really do call me "Princess". It started as a bit of a camp joke and now it has stuck.
  3. Other than toes and fingers, I have never broken a bone. (this changed in November 2008, broke my ankle when drunk. It will never heal. of the joys)
  4. I am a klutz. It is a rare week where I don't trip and fall in public 
  5. I am obsessed with handbags. My first one was a Louis Vuitton Monogrammed Papillion when I was 16. The collection is now close to 100.
  6. I went to an all girls school from nursery school to the end of high school.
  7. I'm hard of hearing, that's why I speak so loudly.
  8. I am not obsessed with shoes, although many people think that I would be.
  9. I have bought a few baby outfits that I just love over the last ten years for when I do have my own baby (only 3, but it's still weird and probably some sort of bad omen).
  10. I don't buy groceries. I can't do it. Never have. I buy for the day if I need them, otherwise I end up throwing out too much food.
  11. I buy the InStyle Weddings and Martha Stewart Weddings issues every time and save them in case I ever get married. (Bad omen number 2 perhaps???)
  12. I have a horrible ability to name musicians.  I like all sorts of music, but ask me what and I can't tell you.
  13. I have never really dated.
  14. I commit to so much volunteer work because it keeps me away from focusing on my own life and issues.
  15. I love stationary. Cards, wrapping paper, writing paper - everything.....
  16. I am my truest self when I am volunteering at a camp for kids with cancer
  17. I love Target and buy a ton there.
  18. I am addicted to "Non-fat, no-foam, extra hot lattes" at Starbuck's.
  19. I find it hard to handle and uncomfortable when a man finds me attractive.
  20. I was never in a sorority, although everyone who knows me is surprised to hear that. They didn't want me, if you really want to know the truth. I told everyone that I didn't want them. I think that I am glad that they didn't want me. I am better off without those girls.
  21. I love linens. I think because they always fit!!
  22. My father thought I was fat when I was a child (around 5 yrs old and up). I don't see it in any of the pictures. I think him telling me that for so long, has made me struggle with my weight and be overweight now. It's like he was prophesying my future.
  23. I rarely wear my glasses or contacts, even though I need them.
  24. I love watching t.v.
  25. I am a cancer, through and through - caring, moody, sensitive, emotional, loyal, resourceful etc.
  26. I get a mani every week and a pedi ever other week with my special combination of Bubble bath on the bottom and Sweetheart nail polish on top (OPI). Heaven forbid I use a standard colour.
  27. I've never kept a diary.
  28. I love to wear big beautiful hats to weddings and events. I work with a fabulous milliner in Toronto.
  29. I love to knit.
  30. I want more than a child, I want a family.  Husband, children, family. 
  31. I didn't have any hair on my head until I was 3 years old. Then it came in blond and in ringlets.
  32. I am building an 8 bedroom dollhouse mansion. I was not allowed to have one as a child. This is me taking my life into my own hands.
  33. I have been nick-named MIT forever. It stands for Mother in Training, because I am instantly looking after everyone around me.
  34. I'm a Conservative/Republican through and through.
  35. I'm envious of many of the woman who's blogs I read, with perfect lives, perfect children and perfect grammar.
  36. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the normal day, however I struggle to eat it everyday. High Tea is my favourite "Special Occasion" meal. I go anywhere and everywhere they serve it - The Ritz or Four Season's in any city, the local tea house.....
  37. I can't spell to save my life - god bless spell check.
  38. I use to teach Sunday School so that I could get out of the church service and also get to play with kids.

  57. I'm a ballroom skier, not into speed or getting myself killed, more into looking good and enjoying myself as I am propelling myself down the hill.  I do "apres-ski" very well.

  73. I used to have a widow's walk in my 3rd floor bedroom up until I was 11 yrs old. I would get dressed up and sing like Evita to the masses on the street. I was a slightly dramatic child.
