Friday Five : Five things about me

I am hooking up again with Mar (@Mar on the run) , Cynthia  (@You signed up for what) and Courtney (@ Eat Pray Run) for the Friday Five link up. This week’s theme is 5 things you didn’t know about me. What a fun theme !



So here goes :

1. I am addicted to chocolate (preferably dark), pancakes and coffee.

2. I do not wear/like pumps or flats. I wear boots in the winter and sandals in the summer. Summer is my favorite because I love pedicures and toe nail polish. I change it every week.

3. I grew up in Maine. If you haven’t been to Maine, the motto is “The Way Life Should Be”. Its got four distinct seasons, oceans, mountains and lobster. I love the people, loved growing up there and would not have traded it for anything in the world.


4. Today, I live in an apartment, in a big city, and wouldn’t have it any other way. I love the constant stimulation, the different nationalities, the energy, lights, the restaurants, everything there is to do, the fact you don’t need to take your car everywhere. But still love to be able to sit outside !

5. I used to hate to cook. My most recent investment was my new kitchen. I LOVE it. However, I didn’t always know how to cook. When I first met my husband, he did 95% of the cooking. When it was my turn, (we still joke today…) I would call Pizza Hut. Now I love to cook but do not like baking. I don’t have the patience !

    I do love milk chocolate (Milka is yummy and Cadbury -not made in the US). I am starting to enjoy cooking more and more.

      Lindt is my favorite brand but Milka with caramel bits in it is to die for ! Cadbury is not big in France… but huge in the UK. France is a more dark chocolate country, the UK and US more milk chocolate I believe.

  2. I’m also addicted to chocolate. In a good way of course. I love to cook!

    I’m not a big baker either though I do love to cook (just don’t do it often!)

      I try to do my cooking on weekends, when I have them time. It has saved me money and calories.

    I also love cities but am a total suburban person in general. My husband and I would love to move into a place in a city when we’re older and don’t have small children anymore! To be able to walk to everything would be great.

      Indeed, two different lifestyles, but both have their advantages and disadvantages !

    I love to cook! I’m not much of a baker though. I don’t need baked goods so I don’t force myself to make them! I love chocolate but my favorite thing is coconut. Anything coconut flavored is good by me!

      I didn’t know you liked coconut. Any great recipes ? That would be a great blog post for you !

      Portland is wonderful ! If you are there again, take a lobster boat ride out of Portland harbor, very very interesting.
