* * *

Where do you live?

Surrey, a Burb of Vancouver

what is your favorite color?

hmmm…..I wear a lot of black, but I love all colors

what is your favorite city?

I love living in Vancouver, but I love the feel of small town america

What is your favorite thing to cook?

All things that I like to eat….that is a VERY large variety! Love chicken with different sauces on top…roasted or stir-fried veggies….apple betty. I love being in the kitchen….but I don’t spend as much time there as I used to….

What beauty product can you not live without?

foundation and lipstick

I am NOT low maintenance….I give myself facials all the time…I am not a 5 minutes and I’m ready for the day kinda girl…..

what is your favorite nyc restaurant?

Film Center CafĂ© It’s small, quaint and has amazingly good food

What is one thing you can’t help but splurge on?

What is your favorite word?

Woo-hoo (as crazy as it sounds – the g-kidlets know it’s me when I call it out)

It’s a Wonderful Life and parts of The Muppets Christmas Carole

Breakfast out with friends or family

Which tv show makes you happiest?

All home design programs…I’m addicted

What is your favorite beverage?

Diet Pepsi with lime wedge

What is one trend that totally victimized you?

Probably the ‘fitness’ clothing lines…..I am SO NOT a fitness guru, and to wear the yoga pants and stuff is VERY comfortable, but I feel so not justified to wear it.
If you could trade lives with anyone for a day who would you chose?
I can’t think of anyone I would rather be….corny I know but true

What is your favorite comfort food?

Okay…true confession time. I take equal parts of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter….melt it in the microwave, stir it until all melted and mixed together and pour it over vanilla ice cream . After a bowl of that…nothing really matters any more.

Sally Fields

Life is always an adventure with you….I love to shop with you, lunch together….antiquing and bargain hunting.

Holidays together are a top of the list favourite, too

What was the best piece of advice you were ever given? Who gave it to you?

Business – Never accept no from someone who doesn’t have the authority to say yes. (I have used this SO OFTEN, but I can’t remember who I got it from)

Personal – Lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.

What three possessions do you value most?

Hmmm….I love my home and I’m very thankful for it

I love things with history…hand-me-downs like my Mom’s silver candle sticks

What three non-material things do you value most?

My Hubby, my kids and their spouses, and my grandkidlets

When was the last time you told someone you loved them? Who was it?

Yesterday, my hubby
