In celebration of Canada Day I would like to take the time to share a few of my FAVOURITE Canadian things and answer a few questions for you …
1. Where are your favourite places to visit in Canada?
I LOVE Tofino, if you go there you have to stay at The Wickaninnish Inn or the Pacific Sands Beach Resort! I also always love going back to my hometown, Peace River!! Oh, and The Emerald Lake Lodge in the Rockies!!
2. Have you ever slept in an igloo?
Not overnight but when I was younger I used to make igloos in our backyard and one day I convinced my parents let me sleep in my igloo with my family dog, Sweets, and they agreed! So, we attempted but it got too cold in the night so I packed up stuff up and headed inside. LOL!
3. What is your favourite Canadian-ism?
One of my favourite quotes comes from Canadian hockey legend, Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”.
4. Where is the best place to try a poutine?
I loooove poutine but ever since going plant-based I find it harder to find a really good vegan poutine but The Naked Cafe here in Kelowna makes a mean vegan poutine!
5. Do you have a Canadian guilty pleasure?
6. Do you say, EH?
F*ckin’ rights, EH!
7. What’s your go-to Canadian drink?
I cannot WAIT to have a Caesar once this little girl is born!!!
8. Have you ever seen a beaver in real life?
I have!! It was when I was 16 years old … I was canoodling in the woods with my first boyfriend and a couple of big beavers appeared out of nowhere and we freaked out and took off!! It was a romantic buzz-kill.
9. What are some of your favourite Canadian brands?
10. Which Canadian musicians do you love to listen to?
I love love love The Tragically Hip, Aaron Pritchett … Jan Arden … there’s so many!!
11. How do you celebrate Canada Day?
Each year my girlfriends come to the Okanagan and we spend Canada Day together, this year will mark our sixth year doing this! You can either find us out on the lake in the boat with Justin or hanging out by our pool drinking caesars … which I won’t be doing this year! LOL!
12. Where is your favourite place to skinny dip?
I would have to say my pool … although … I HAVE gone skinny dipping in Okanagan Lake and it’s pretty awesome. Actually, now that I think about it, I’ve skinny dipped lots of places in Canada!
13. Why are you excited to raise Leo & your Baby Girl in Canada?
Canada is an awesome place! I mean, while I know not all Canadian’s share the same opinion when it comes to politics, overall we are a fairly liberal and accepting Country. I feel like we are doing things right when it comes to treating people with kindness and having big hearts and that’s how I want to raise my kids. We have a lot to be grateful for!
