Just For Fun…10 Random Facts

In an effort to get to know fellow bloggers a little better, I thought I’d share a little about me first:

1) I live in Cole Harbour, NS. Sidney Crosby anyone? Yup, we live within walking distance to his childhood home, where his family still resides.

I could have driven down the street to take this picture myself but in sheer laziness, here’s the photo source.

2) I seriously love cats. All animals really, but cats especially. Our fur baby 🙂

3) My name is Catherine. Not Cate. Or Cathy. Or Cathleen…Catherine. I like my name.

4) If I could live anywhere in the world it would be Munich, Germany.

Taken by yours truly on our honeymoon; view from with Neusweinstein castle, Bavaria.

5) I could people watch all day. Plop me in a mall food court and I’m a happy camper.

6) Speaking of camping, we LOVE to camp. We actually had a ”camping” shower instead of a traditional wedding shower, at a campground with family where we received loads of great camping gear!{Source}

7) I use ‘Eh’ enough to justify any Canadian stereotyping…sorry all fellow Canadians.

8) I consider myself to be quite well educated but seriously suck at crossword puzzles and that makes me feel really stupid.                                                               {Source}

9) I’m married to my high school sweetheart.

10) I LOVE cereal. All kinds, healthy cereal, crap cereal, I’ll eat it all. On a deserted island, it would be my forever-food choice.


One of my all time favorite cereals that we sadly cannot get in Canada 🙁

  1. You can’t get Trix in Canada? That’s soooooo sad – I LOVE Trix too ! Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself, Catherine!

    • It is a very sad thing indeed. When we went to NYC 2 years ago I bought like 4 boxes to bring home haha.

  2. Something about me hey…
    Well I love eating bread, particularly garlic bread – its just about my favourite thing to eat in this world!

  3. OMG! I have been to that castle! Isn’t it beautiful? It was the only time I have been to Germany but it was lovely. I would love to see it again but the costs would be ridiculous. Glad you got to go there.

    • When we were planning our honeymoon it was cheaper to fly to Germany than it was to fly across Canada (we almost did Banff)….crazy eh? I can’t wait to go back!

  4. Thanks for sharing those! Random Fact: I work at a mortuary.

  5. I’m so glad I got to know my “pen pal” a little better. I love the idea of a camping wedding shower-how unique 🙂

  6. Umm I think we are blog twins. I love cats, my hubby is allergic so I paid through the nose for a hypo-allergenic Siberian forest cat and she is the best kitty ever. My fiancé and I seriously considered spending our honey moon in Bavaria. I love camping too, and I intentionally avoid cross word puzzles because I suck at them. I’m glad I got to learn a bit more about you!

    • haha we also both went to the same university, live in Atlantic Canada and have loads of debt 🙂

  7. Awww your fur baby is so cute!

  8. Nice post! My favorite cereals are Honey nut Cheerios and I don’t find them as often as I would like!
    Random fact: I hitch-hiked from Mexico City to Chile after I graduated from college.

  9. Thanks for sharing. I LOVE Munich!!! I’ve been there twice and I think that I could easily move there. Although, I think my wife would contend with that as she would want to move to Ireland. I’ve also been to Neuschwanstein both times as well and think it’s so beautiful. Random fact for me…I’ve been to all but 7 states in the US.

    • That’s a lot of travelling! I haven’t been to Ireland yet but my sister-in-law’s boyfriend is from Northern Ireland so hope to go to the UK with them one day.

  10. I too love Germany!

    Is that a picture of your cat? Why do they love laundry baskets so much? Our two climb into mine every night while we are getting ready for bed.

  11. We are really spoiled by the our cereal choice in the US. Can’t remember buying Trix, but nice to know I could if I wanted. Random fact: I have been a member of the Pearl Jam fan club for ages.

    • That’s fun! Have you ever won anything from being a member? or perks? You’re spoiled by food choice period, oh and price too.

  12. I love your furbaby. Is she a Maine Coon? We have two Persian kitties. They are rescues and our babies.

    Random fact, I grew up in a really small town in Maine. After my Senior prom we went “smelting”. If you’re not familiar, smelts are little tiny fish. So I traded in my pretty prom dress for a pair of waders and sweat pants to help my date catch little fish in a net.

    • I know what smelting is and sounds like fun 🙂 I grew up in NS but spent a huge chunk of my childhood (summers) in Northern NB at a family camp…we’d spend days in Maine (presque isle/bangor mostly). She’s a makeral tabby..pretty kitten though 🙂
