15 Day Challenge - Day 1

I like any excuse to have 15 blog post topics given to me, so when I came across the 15 Day Challenge I thought I would give it a shot.  Let's see if I can get 'er done!

So Day 1 is List 15 fun facts about yourself.  I'm a bit slow on the get go here, but better late than never!

I always have trouble thinking up fun facts so hopefully I can come up with 15 of them.

1. I legit thought I was going to marry Adam Gregory when I was younger.  (He is a Canadian country music singer).  I thought this because he was Canadian instead of American so I figured my chances were way higher.  After meeting him 5 times and never having him remember my name I gave up on the dream.

2. I am a huge nerd.  I used to ask my teacher to give me homework in Grade 3.  Who does that?

3.  I went to France on an exchange in Grade 11. It was one of the most trying and fantastic experiences of my life.  Maybe I will share more about it someday.  But that would require hooking up my scanner to scan in pictures since it was before the days of the digital camera.

4.  I have an unnatural obsession with celebrity life. I seem to think that it matters. 

5. I was in a singing group in Grade 5.  We wanted to be the next Spice Girls.  We didn't succeed. 

6. I eat raw cookie dough likes it's my job.  We always sold these tubs of cookie dough as a fundraiser for skating, and most of the time I never make any of the cookies.  It drives my mom nuts.  But if I like it better raw, why would I cook them?

7.  I'm definitely an introvert.  But once you get to know me I might not shut up. 

8.  I am a homebody.  My idea of a good Saturday night is if Ryan goes out with his friends and I am left to my own devices.  It's ok if he stays with me too, I just don't get to watch a chick flick then.

9.  I can't decide whether I love the Real Housewives because I want to be them, I'm glad I'm not them, or a combination of both.

10.  I am working towards my CGA (Certified General Accountant) designation.  School seems to be neverending.  I question most days whether I will ever actually be done.

11. I would really love to have twins.  2 babies, one pregnancy.  I think so.  Plus then I can talk Ryan into 3 babies when he only wants 2.

12. My favourite movies (currently) are The Wedding Date and Because I Said So.  I don't know what it is about them, but I can just watch them over and over.

13.  My dream is to go to Harry Potter land.  And I want to buy The Harry Potter Snuggie and The Magic Wand remote.  I told you I was a nerd.

14. I had a miduniversity crisis and applied to be a flight attendant.  I didn't get the job.

15.  I love to bake.  But my creations don't always turn out well. 

I did it!  So proud of myself.  Hopefully I can keep it up for the next 15 days!


  1. Bwaaaahahahaha about your singing group in 5th grade. So cute.

    Raw cookie dough is delicious!

    My bestie Rae has the Magic Wand remote for XBox Kinect and it was awesome! SO neat!

    Thanks for linking up! Can't wait to learn more about you!

  2. 2. Ok, I totally used to ask my teacher for homework too! They finally started giving me extra work in 5th grade to shut me up!
    3. Awesome!
    4. Me too
    7. Me too
    12. Love Because I said So! My bff and I used to watch it everyday..
    13. Oh HP, <3!!
    14. I applied to be one right after college haha!

    Ok I feel a little strange making so many comments on a strangers blog, but heywhatareyougonnado!

    1. That;s ok! I love comments! Glad I'm not the only weirdo out there who likes homework and Harry Potter!

  3. I want that remote! Seriously. Coolest thing ever. I've been to a few Harry Potter sights! I saw Platform 9 3/4 and the rooms in Oxford where they filmed the sorting scene and the staircase scene right before it from the first movie. And I saw the cafe in Edinburgh that is famously where it all started and where JK Rowling often wrote. :)

    Spice girls were huge for me in 5th grade too. All the little girl cliques made themselves into the Spice Girls. I was the last to join mine, so I had to be Posh because she was the only one left. Ha.

  4. I always say I hope I have twins! Mostly because I think children are a blessing, but pregnancy itself sounds awful. So if you can get a 2 for 1 deal, all the better! And I know it's more work when they're little, but it'll be even easier as they grow up!
