A Little Bit More About Me

Amber from Simple Dwellings passed this little guy along to me this past weekend. Thanks so much, Amber, for recognizing me as a stylish blogger:)

So I'm supposed to tell you guys seven things about myself that you might not already know. So here ya go:

1. The name Maple Leaves & Sycamore Trees originated from where both Mitch and I grew up. He's a Canuck and I grew up on a dead end street in a small town in New Jersey called Sycamore St. We're both proud of where we're from so I thought it was only proper to name this little blog in honor of them.

2. I was the steady quarterback at every recess when I taught 4th grade. (I taught 4th for three years and high school English and History for two years and have a mean spiral.)

3. I hate cats. They're just too sneaky. And evil.

4. I cried on the balloon ride. Yeah--like this kind of balloon ride.

5. In high school, I went to the Rosie O' Donnell Show and caught two of those koosh balls she used to shoot out at the crowd.

6. My jaw pops with every bite I take. Never bothered me and I don't even think about it anymore until someone sitting next to me stares at me with their jaw dropped.

7. I met The World's Strongest Man 2001, Svend Karlsen, on a trip to Northern Ireland. I have my picture taken with him. I'll show you someday when I figure out how to scan pictures. If you have a problem with that, I'll just call up my buddy Svend.

So there ya go--now you know a little bit more about me whether you wanted to or not:) Now I get to pass on this award to five other bloggers. Check out these great blogs when you get a chance. Love them all!

  1. I knew there was another reason that I liked you; you married a Canadian! I'm from the center of the universe, better known as Toronto. LOL

  2. Oh my gosh, I used to LOVE it when Rosie would do the koosh balls! I miss that show!

  3. Great post! I loved learning 7 new things about you! How funny is your buddy Svend! :)

  4. Yay for Canadians! Love the name of your blog even more now:)

  5. Congratulations! My mom grew up in Canada and will only use REAL Canadian maple the blog name.

  6. Hi Kat, I was just browsing through my blog roll and stopped by your blog 'cause I saw you got an award and wanted to learn more about you! Congrats - I am half canuck! Anyway, so happy I found your blog and thanks for passing on the award!
