Liebster Award: Getting To Know Me :)

This week I was lucky enough to be nominated for three Liebster Awards! Thanks to the adorable Kim for the first nomination. Kim is a NYC based registered dietitian who is currently training for the NYC Marathon. I'm pretty sure we'd be BFF's if we lived in the same city ;) She just finished a half marathon in under 2 hours! Check out her blog and follow along as she gets ready to run my dream race! She's going to ROCK IT!! 

Kim asked me to answer 10 questions so here you go. 

1. If you could travel back in time, when/where would you go? I'd go to my grandparents' (Nana and Gaga) place near Windsor, Ontario where I was born. They had this huge pool in their backyard and I have a lot of memories of spending afternoons and weekends there. My grandparents both passed away at a young age and I miss them every day.

2. What's your biggest fear? My biggest fear is losing my mom. I've talked about her a lot on my blog and she truly is my best friend. We have an amazing relationship and I can talk to her about anything. She's the first person I call when something good or bad happens (sometimes even before my husband!) We don't live in the same city anymore (about 14 hours away) but we talk at least once a day (sometimes more like 5-6!) 

3. What's your biggest pet peeve? Drama. People that start it. People that stir it up. Life is too short.

4. Favourite beverage? I drink a LOT of water and feel blah if I don't get enough. I would say my favourite "treat" beverage is my soy chai tea lattes from Starbucks.

5. What's your favourite holiday? My favourite holiday is Christmas. I have a lot of great memories, growing up, surrounding Christmas and I love that it's the one holidays a year that my family is all able to be together. I love all our traditions!

6. Are you a dog or cat person? Dog person. Although, after my dog bite incident I've been a little freaked out around dogs I don't know.

7. Would you rather be able to only whisper or only yell for the rest of your life? Whisper. Otherwise, I'd probably be really annoying at special events like graduations or weddings ;) 

8. What's one thing that you do just for you? Running. It makes ME a better version of myself. 

The one, and only, time I've run in -43 degree weather!

9. Who/What can always make you smile? That's easy. My son, London!

10. Who is my person? See question #2 :) 

Your turn! Pick two of the above questions and answer it for me please! I love getting to know my readers better :)


  1. My.biggest fear is also losing my mom, she's definitely my best friend too.
    I'm a cat person for sure :-) I like dogs but don't love them.

    1. I love when I hear other people have a great relationship with their mom! I think it says a lot about them! Your mom seems so sweet! xx

  2. I love that your mom is your best friend. I'm like that with my sister. She is always the first person I go to.

    1. Aww that's sweet!! I always wanted a sister growing up! Luckily, my brother is pretty cool and we get along MUCH better now that we're adults!! ;)
