Linking up with the lovely Laura over at The Every Day Joys for Say Hello!
Here are “The Questions” we were asked to answer:
1. What is your morning routine?
Well, I usually wake up at about 5:30am with Annika for her first feeding of the day, and then we snuggle back into bed until about 7:30am when Nora wakes up and is either already in the bed with me or she crawls into bed with me. Nora and I head downstairs while Annika keeps snoozing and we have breakfast together. Nora usually eats berries, cereal and toast. I have a bagel and either an Iced Tea or a can of Cherry Coke lol. Then I shower (depending on whether or not Annika is still sleeping lol) and get dressed.
2. Are you on Instagram? What is your username? Who are 3 of your fave IGer’s?
I am on Instagram. My name is kareneanne. 3 faves?? Oh that’s so hard!! I love lots of people – but I’d have to go with one of my real life pal’s Brynne (brynne_d), Chantal from Scattered Seashells (cshels) and Laura from The Every Day Joys (theeverydayjoys) (cuz their kids are just so stinkin’ cute!!!)
3. Please tell us 1-3 of your daily “must read” bloggers.
I follow so many on my bloglovin feed but I do have my favourites:
1. Mrs.K and Captain J – LOVE her blog
2. ScatteredSeashells – I’m so excited for their big move and I need to hear all the details lol
3. Chambanachik – she’s cool
4. Tell us a little bit about you and your family:
Well, I’m married to a RCAF future ACSO (don’t ask what it stands for – I can never remember the proper term – he will be a navigator), Paul. We have been married for almost 2 years now but together for 5 years. We have two daughters – Nora who is almost 2 ½ years old and Annika who is 6 months old. We also have a labradoodle, Bella who is 3 years old (and is more like a puppy than a grown up dog lol). We just moved back to my hometown and I am LOVING living near my parents right now (hello – built in babysitting!!). I am currently still on maternity leave (we get a full year in Canada) but after that is up in March I plan on being a SAHM. I also sell Stampin’ Up! in my spare time and I LOVE to craft.
5. What are your favourite holiday traditions?
My current fave is how we open one present on Christmas Eve and it’s always a pair of pj’s. We did that in my family growing up and I’m so excited that we are passing that down to our girls. I also absolutely love the holidays so I’m pretty excited for Christmas this year. And Nora loves it – every time we see a Christmas tree when we are out shopping she squeals. It’s awesome.
6. Tell us one random fact about you.
I am a candy addict. I love candy. Especially Laffy Taffy. It’s bad people. Bad. We bought candy down in the States last week so I could feed my addiction lol. Also, I puffy heart designing logos and things like that but I don’t think I’m good at it so I get other people to do all of my designs for me lol.
So thanks for stopping by!! Hope to see you all again soon!!
