Weekly Get To Know Me (Oct 7)

How Long Does It Take Me To Get Ready In The Morning?

My son is an early riser, and we get up at 5:30. My husband leaves for work just before we get up. The kitchen is next to my bedroom and I get ready while my son is having his breakfast and watching shows on his tablet. We have about an hour and a half before we have to be out the door. I usually take about 25 minutes to do my makeup. I'm constantly stopping and checking on Caleb and talking to him throughout the process.

Where Am I Going For Vacation?

My husband and I are both from a small town in Gaspe, Quebec. Every fall we go back to our hometown. The men are in the woods for a week moose hunting, and I get to relax and do nothing. I'll be staying with my mother in law, and seeing my family as well. I plan to do alot of blogging. I'm really excited. It's about 11 hours from where we currently live in Montreal.

What Is The Least Favorite Thing About Myself?

I'm an introvert, and I'm fine being by myself. I'm not a social butterfly and I prefer to be on my own, if I'm not with my husband or family. I don't get bored being alone. I'm not good at keeping in contact with friends. Having a child and being in social circles has been a challenge for me. People love to talk to you when you have a young child and that took some getting use to. My husband is my best friend, we've been together for 15 years. It also helps that our families knew each other long before we were together. I never had to learn his family, I knew alot of them growing up. 

Who Is One Celebrity That I Admire?

Ashley Callingbull. She's an Enoch Cree First Nations from Alberta, Canada. She won the Mrs. Universe pageant in 2015 and immediately used the platform to speak out about First Nations issues, including missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada. She's a motivational speaker and actress. She tears down the stereotype of the "pageant/beauty" queen. If you didn't know, I'm Native American myself and it's a huge part of who I am and how I want my son to be raised.

Did I Go To University?

Yes, I did. My Bachelor is a Joint Specialization of English and History with a Certificate for Native Studies.

  8. I really enjoyed getting to know you! I am quite an introvert too, I was never ever popular at all in high school (and I was bullied a lot). Somehow along the way I found a small group of friends that I love and spend time with which is better than having a ton of fake friends. And my husband is my best friend too, we were spending a lot of time together before we were dating!


  9. I would've never thought you were an introvert! You're so active on Twitter. I always feel bad because I don't interact enough with people on social media. Have a great trip. Sounds awesome.

  10. Your weekly get to know me series is very interesting and nice to read. I love knowing you as a person. Even I never get bored of being alone. :-) Enjoy your trip.
