So here are 11 random things about myself:
- My favourite chocolate is a toss up between Toblerone, Danish Marzipan or Toffifee.
- I love to go quading with my hubby, especially when we go to a derby and get covered in mud.
- I enjoy fishing and would go with my Dad as a little girl every chance I got. Ice fishing included.
- I have weird taste buds and like “HeadCheese” & “Tongue” (a deli meat that I really don’t eat anymore but still like). I also like all seafood, ox tail soup and tartar (a Danish dish of raw ground beef, raw egg, onions and capers on German brown bread). I think I just lost some readers!
- I worked at a riding stable for close to five years and love horses.
- I have a soft spot in my heart for teddy bears. Especially black bears made by Gund.
- I jump head first into things even before thinking them through. I just get too excited to try something new.
- I love playing video games with my son in our p.j.’s on any given day!
- I love to golf with my son and hope to do so till I can’t anymore.
- I’ve been to Swaziland, Africa on two missions trips.
