  1. I can rarely watch a movie at home without falling asleep!
  2. We grow our own garden every year – beets, carrots, potato, tomato, herbs, lettuce – oh and did I mention beets??? I LOVE beets!!
  3. I wear glasses/ contacts and think I may be ready for, gasp! – reading glasses!!!!
  4. I read, lots! Mostly fiction – I like stories about people and their experiences.
  5. The smell of freshly baked bread is like nothing on earth! 
  6. I wish I was more flexible & had better balance. I always admire the bendy ones!
  7. I really want to take my family on a big trip! We have never been overseas as a family. We have had great trips to Victoria, Newfoundland, Yellowstone & San Diego!
  8. Every now and then I wish I needed to dress like a grown up to go to work! Then I wouldn’t show up to every parent council, meet the teacher, activity drop off and coffee date in a rag taggle ponytail and sweaty lulu’s that I hope aren’t too stinky!!
    (btw – how are some other mom’s so incredible well put together ALL of the time?)
  9. My husband is from Newfoundland and loves his home province! I probably know more lyrics to Newfie folk tunes than a lot of Newfies!!!
  10. I have a personal training studio in my basement and feel pretty darn lucky to do what I do everyday!!! 

    10 things you may not know about Stevie!

  1. Favourite food:  sprinkles…yes, sprinkles.  I wish sprinkles were served on Kale and broccoli instead of cupcakes and doughnuts. 
  2. The surprise of finding pockets on a dress brings me great excitement.
  3. Watching live music and/or dance brings feelings up for me that I can’t explain. I love watching people perform.
  4. I cry a lot! About everything! When I’m happy, sad, frustrating, tired, proud, excited…
  5. One thing I wish I could live without is my phone. One thing I could never live without is my journal.
  6. Public push ups cause me anxiety…I feel like I am always working towards stronger push ups.
  7. My first two girls are 14 months to the day apart in age and the baby/toddler years were by far the most exhausting couple years of my life. I’m tired just thinking about those days.
  8. I get cranky when I go too long without working out.
  9. My husband is my best friend. We were friends in high school and lived together as PLATONIC roommates in college before we ever started dating….
  10. I have had braces FOUR times. I consider myself a braces expert.
