Friday Five

I am totally stealing this idea from Solana, mainly because I have felt particularly lacking in the blogger department this week.  With a house full of sick people, and me being the only healthy one of us, I just haven't had much time to think or write.  I thought this looked like fun :)

So, here it is...enjoy...

Five things I have a passion for
1.  Running
2.  Hiking
3.  Coffee - particularly the perfect soy latte
4.  Giving my kids an amazing and magical childhood
5.  Creativity

Five things I’d like to do before I die
1.  Tour Europe
2.  Move back to the city...any city :P  Kidding...just to Calgary or Vancouver.  Right now it feels like it's NEVER going to happen.
3.  Ride in hot air balloon
4.  Own a Bernese Mountain Dog
5.  Live to be 128 years old - since life already feels too short for all that it could possibly hold

Five reads I love
1.  Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien
2.  The Time Travellers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
3.  A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness
4.  The Neverending Story - Michael Ende
5.  JPod - Douglas Coupland

Five favorite movies
1.  Breakfast at Tiffany's
2.  Amelie
3.  Garden State
4.  Up
5.  Lord of the Rings Trilogy (after I got past the fact that Jackson obviously failed to read the books)

Fives places I want to travel to
1.  Sardinia
2.  Ireland
3.  Great Wall of China
4.  New York
5.  Mainland Europe (specifically Paris and Tuscany)

and something a little bookish ;)

Have a great weekend, y'all.  Right now, I'm tapering and am hoping to not contract whatever this bug is the rest of my family has...wish me luck!


  1. The Night Circus by Morgenstern. That is all. Thank me later.

  2. Ireland and Paris are both gorgeous! Save those pennies and go! :)

  3. I like reading these kinds of things. Going to tuck this one away for one of those days I'm lacking for post ideas!
