A Little About Me

So, Miranda from Blooming in Alaska tagged me. Really, I feel honored! So while the kids do whatever it is they do when they are unsupervised (eat toothpaste, apparently), I will answer her questions and tell a little about myself! She tags me, asks some questions, then I tag 4 more people. Here goes!

1. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
A wife and a mother! Is there anything better than that?! Okay, I did want to be a veterinarian due to my love of animals. However, when I realized how much schooling it would take and how it would "interfere" with my wife/mother plans, I let that dream die. I am thrilled to be living the life I am now!

2. What was your favorite childhood television program?
We didn't really watch TV growing up so I have no memories of that.

3. What was your pet name when you were a kid?
Ha, I laugh at this one! I am still called by that pet name 34 years later - Boom or Boomer, whichever you wish! Don't ask me why, I don't really know. But it is still how my father and sister and cousin refer to me. My dad asked me my real name on my wedding day!

4. What is your favorite decorating task to do (ie: painting, hanging pics, building, etc...)
Hmmm. I would say building. Painting requires too many sore muscles! I really love to put things together so anything like that is good!

5. What is your least favorite home chore to do?
Only one? Well, laundry is a good starter as it is always never ending! Washing floors makes me work up a sweat. Actually, I don't despise any of them, I just don't do them for fun.

6. Besides decor/home stuff, do you have any other hobbies or passions?
I love photography! I love to crochet. I have been known to make a few cards. I love to bake/cook. Oh, landscaping or gardening are pure joy, too! Reading is bliss! Sewing is so fun. There are a lot of things I enjoy doing and more I would love to learn. For example, could someone please teach me how to play the saxaphone? Seriously, that would be amazing! That is a gotta-do-before-I-die desire of mine!

7. Are you a morning or night person?
Late night owl! Mornings are for sleeping!

8. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
To Africa on a safari. Lifelong dream! Oh, I can only imagine how wonderful it would be!

Well, that should give you a little glimpse into this wonderfully complicated person called Chantelle!

Now for my questions!

1. What is your favorite memory of your childhood years?
2. What did you want to be when you grew up?
3. If you had an evening to yourself with no expectations placed on you, what would you do?
4. What would you like to learn to do sometime in this life?
5. Last book you read? Favorite book?
6. Would people describe you as a "girly-girl" or more of a "tom-boy"?
7. Favorite beverage?
8. Childhood nickname? Current nickname?

And the lucky ladies getting tagged are:

Becky from Enjoying our Inheritance

Nikki from More From Second Street

Jenn from Mama Jenn

Leah from A Very Sweet Life

Have a great weekend! We are taking the day off school and enjoying the 23C weather in the middle of October by heading to the country (again) to cut down trees (again), pull out trees (again), till up grass (again) and maybe start working on the new driveway! Gotta make the best use of these gorgeous fall days while we can! The snow will fly soon enough (ugh, the thought makes me gag!)!


  1. Thanks for "tagging" me! I look forward to sharing a little more about myself!!!

  2. Thanks for answering the questions. I like following your journey toward your dream house. You seem like a fun and adventurous gal. :)

  3. No's the perfect goey-ness that I just can't seem to master! (I just realized this comment for sure won't make sense to anyone else who reads it!)
