Know Me Better – Old School Blogging


Old School Blogging is back for November with Elaine from Miss Elaine-ous Life and Brittany from That’s Vandy, who is co-hosting with Elaine this month. This meme is from May 2008 and it is such a fun way to get to know each other better.  

Where is your cell phone? One of three places – right beside me, in my pocket or in my purse. It is never far away from me. 

Your significant other? Is David. He is currently rocking a cheesy ‘stache in support of Movember.

Your hair? In desperate need of a cut. (Like my friend Kerstin wrote about - I am talking Stage 5 here, friends.) 

Your mother? Makes delicious baked goods.  

Your father? Is super handy and resourceful – he is my first call when things go wrong around the house. 

Your favourite thing? Being mom to these guys.

The Captains (Bravo, left, and Alpha, right)

Your dream last night? Was weird. I don’t remember my dreams often, but when I do, they tend to be weird.

Your favourite drink? Coffee. Water is second; I drink more water than coffee, though.

Your dream/goal? To raise 2 strong, kind, capable men.

The room you are in? The little work nook/corner I have carved out of our living room.

Your fear? Driving in the snow or heavy rain.

Where do you want to be in 6 years? The Captains will be 15 and 10. (Eek!) I hope to be continuing along happily with my family, wherever we may be. I hope to still be writing.   

Where were you last night? On my couch watching Netflix. David was out, so I had a solo movie night. 

What are you not? Decisive – it took me forever to decide what movie to watch.

Muffins? Yes, please.

One of your wish items? A DSLR – one day. 

Where you grew up? Nova Scotia, Canada

NovaScotiaPeggysCove Know Me Better   Old School Blogging

One of my favourite spots in my home province

The last thing you did? Made a cup of coffee. 

What are you wearing? My pajamas.  (It’s early Sunday morning.)

Your TV? When it is on, it alternates between Treehouse (Canadian children’s channel,) The Food Network and Netflix.

Your pets? Are missed very much. But we still have no plans to get another immediately. 

Your computer? Is a recent gift from David – a new HP touchscreen. 

Your life? So very sweet. I am a lucky girl. 

Your mood? Bright – I am blogging, right? That always makes me smile. 

Missing someone? My friend in England. 

Your car? A blue Mazda 5. I love it. 

Something you are not wearing? Make up or hair product – PJs, remember? 

Favourite store? Chapters, a kitchen store, or Target

Your summer? Went so fast! But it was fun. 

Like someone? Lots of people. I am a friendly introvert. 

Your favourite colour? Red

When was the last time you laughed? Yesterday. I haven’t laughed yet today. I am sure that will change soon. 

Last time you cried? Probably 2 days ago. I am a sensitive sort, so I cry a lot.

What is one thing on your to-do list? Grocery shopping. 

Alright, everyone! Time to go Old School!

Comments Make Me Geek Out

  1. Yay I love Old School Blogging! And I love that pictures of your smiling boys. New computer? Good job David! That’s the perfect gift for a blogger. I like the idea of a solo movie night, that sounds kind of nice. That way I could watch chick-flicks without any complaining from my hubby. I’m working on my post and hope to be linking up later today!

    • The new computer is much appreciated – it is nice to have a faster one when I am blogging and reading. :)
      And I do love a solo movie night sometimes – I get to watch without feeling like I am forcing my husband to watch something he would rather not.

  2. Yay for Chapters! I love that store as well. Alas, it’s just as far away as the nearest Target… :)
    Love the pictures of you and your family and now I definitely want to visit Eastern Canada, that picture of Nova Scotia is great!
    (P.S. – your husband looks like the principal in my son’s school :) )

  3. I love your getting to know you list. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Can I come over to your house for a cup of coffee? :)

    Great pic of you and your hubby!

    • I would love for you to come over for a coffee! That would be awesome. Please excuse the crumbs on the floor and the folded laundry on the loveseat, though. :)

  4. I’m at Stage 5 for my haircut needs too. Des keeps grabbing fistfuls of it and that isn’t helping! I love seeing clear photos of the Captains and of your husband, cheesy mustache or not!

  7. Those Captains are HAND-SOME! And now I wish I was hanging out in my p.j.s with a cup of coffee even though it is 8:55. Maybe I’ll go make some tea… :)

    Thanks for linking up!!

  10. I’ve been at hair stage 5 for months!

    Aw, how sweet of your guy to get you a new computer. Also, your boys are so cute!

  11. Aw! Your hubby looks good with the mustache. He can totally pull it off! Adorbs picture of The Captains, too!!
    You have a new touchscreen computer?! Squee!! Spill…do you love it? I don’t have a touchscreen, but I’m told that Windows 8 is a totally different experience with a touchscreen computer. Is it the best thing ever?
    This was a great Old School Blogging. I feel like I learned a lot! (I think I’m a friendly introvert, too!! I love that phrase!! –Lisa

    • I do love the touchscreen. And Windows 8 is soooo much better with it. I still use the keys and mouse, but having the option to scroll with the screen is awesome. David laughs because he will see me out of the corner of his eye and think that I am waving at him trying to get his attention. :)

  12. I can’t believe I never told you that about 10 years ago, we took a northern cruise and stopped in Nova Scotia to go sea kayaking. It was so very lovely and I hope one day to get back there!

    Also, I loved your whole list but let me just say that your and your kids have the most fantastic eyes! They are so big and awesome!

    I have a touch screen and have for a long time now but I never use the tough parts. I know, it just seems so odd :)
    Brittany recently posted..DIY Plumbing Pipe TableMy Profile

    • I am so glad you enjoyed your visit to Nova Scotia. I hope you do make it back one day!
      I use the touch screen mostly for scrolling – I just like whipping down and across the pages. I feel so futuristic. :)

  13. Oh I love muffins too. I just posted an awesome Chocolate Chip Avocado one.
    My BIL is doing the mustache thing too, he looks so funny with facial hair.

  14. So good to see pictures of you all and get to know you better! I feel like I remember answering these questions a few years ago…I guess that’s why it’s Old School Blogging!

  15. I love getting to know bloggers better – cute pics of your boys. My boys are all where your boys will be in 10 years. Eek!!

  16. Yay for Old School Blogging! I have to do this! You boys are so sweet. Thinking ahead 6 years – crazy to think how big the boys will be! Mine will be 10 and 13. Whats?? And my wish too is to raise 2 strong, kind, capable men.
