I thought we would change things up here on the blog and tell you five things you probably don’t know about me . . . shall we!?!?
1) Surprise – I’m in Toronto!!!!
I’m really excited about this one friends. I arrived in Toronto on Sunday afternoon, and I’m here until the 17th, Truth be told, I’m loving being home!!!!
It’s been nearly two years since I was last in Toronto, and I was well over-due for a visit. The Husband couldn’t make the trip with me (I’ll tell you why next) but I did bring Daisy along for the ride.
Honestly, the older I get the more I appreciate being close with my parents. It really is too bad that they live a 5 1/2 plane ride away. Maybe when we eventually have kids we can see my parents a little more often. But for now, I will settle for daily telephone contact with my mom and visits as frequent as I can muster.
And while I’m here, I’ll enjoy every moment!!!
2) The Husband is going back to school!!!
The Husband finished his undergrad degree a while back and since then has embarked on a successful career in the public service. But the winds of change have hit our Coastal Casa and he’s decided it’s time he complete a Masters.
Truth be told, everyone that knows the Husband, always knew he would end up at this place . . . it was just a matter of when. And now that he’s ready, we’re both so excited about this next step in our lives together!
3) We won’t be doing a ton of travelling for a while . . . and that’s alright!!
Those of you that are frequent readers know, we love to travel!!!! Exploring new places and cultures is one of those things that the Husband and I just love to do together but given his upcoming grad degrees we will have to put major travel on the back burner.
And you know what!??! That’s okay!!! Because we’re so new to Vancouver and we still have so many absolutely incredible places to explore!!! We truly are blessed to live in such an incredible place!
4) My Weight Loss Continues!!!
Most of you know that I’m on a quest to shed some terribly unwanted pounds before my 32nd birthday in November. Granted, my plan won’t be quite as strict while I’m on vacation but I still continue to lose weight.
Thanks to sensible eating and a moderate amount of exercise, I have lost slightly over 5lbs!!! When I return from vacation, I plan on kicking my weight loss into high gear but thus far I’m very pleased!!!
5) I still haven’t given up on my love of good food!!!
Last time I lost a load of weight I did so while developing a somewhat unhealthy relationship with food.
It started off innocuously enough and ended with me referring to fruit, some colourful veggies, and bread as evil. What a sad state of affairs that was . . .
Well this time, I was determined to do things differently and thus far I’m succeeding!!! I’m pleased to report I’m still eating pretty much everything but concentrating on eating lean and green.
I’m well on my way friends, and I’m absolutely thrilled!!!
Question: What’s one thing that people might be surprised to learn about you!?!?!?
