I've been tagged!

So the lovely Jodi over at day2daywear tagged me!  This is my first time being tagged and I am absolutely thrilled, so thank you Jodi!  Now to get to know me a little bit....

1.  What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a teacher first, then that went away to wanting to be a geologist.  I even started my university degree heading in that direction, but the math got in the way.  Still love rocks, and the earth etc, but was not the path for me.

2.  Favorite childhood game?
Pinochle! The adults would all play it at my grandparent's house down in Bellingham, and kids would gather around to watch.  When our hands were big enough to hold the card, we got to play.  Many many fond memories of that game and the family.  I would never bid, but I like to think I was a killer partner!

3.  Most favorite birthday?
When I was 16, my friend Rachael and her dad let me have a sleep over at their house (ours was too small).  It was just so nice of them, and it was a lot of fun, so thank you Rachael :)

4.  Something you have always wanted to do and haven't yet?
  Go to Taiwan or Paris.  I see Taiwan being more feasible, but oh day!

5.  What was your first love?
Like Jodi, "what"?  Hmmm if you ask anyone who knew me as a little girl, it would be unicorns! Prancing, shiny, purple unicorns.  Of which I have grown out of by the way, no more unicorns please.

6.  First musical idol?
I don't remember....maybe...Raffi or Fred Penner?  I was a child of the 80's....

7.  Favourite gift?
I gave my mom a little koala bear years ago, and it now lives in her car.  When ever I visit her I see it there, and it makes me happy.  Favourite gift given to me?  Engagment ring!

8.  If a theme song played everywhere I went what would it be?
Sunshine and lollipops!  Ok not so much, but how cool would that be for a theme song?  It would more likely be something pretty tame these days.
9.  Favorite city to visit?
Ohhh this is a hard one, I was wavering between New York and Seattle but Seattle would always win out! In fact, so  much so I hope to be down there by this time next year for good.  I think it is because it is like Vancouver, but not at the same time, plus, Tim is there.

Speaking of Tim, here is a picture of us last year at my friend Shayna's wedding.  It was the end of a long and fun night hehe


  1. Awww my husband is a geologist! He just finished his Master's. Like you, he hates the math!! :)

  2. That is so awesome you wanted to be a Geologist. Girl Geos are the best. You should go back to School Jess. After I barely passed Calc 1 and 2 I knew I wouldn't be getting my Masters in Geology.

  3. I loved reading about you! Can I be your freind?

    Love, Mum

  4. Oh neat Viktoria! yeah...math and I are not very good friends lol

    Hi Laura :) I have considered it at times. I have a History degree, but I will have the opportunity in the next year to start over, so many choices to make...

    Yes mom, you can be my friend! And you read my blog! awwww so happy :)

  5. hahah love the unicorns - I always wanted a zebra as a pet - for some reason until this day I still like zebra print more than leopard print... go figure.
