The Adventure Starts Here: 5 Things

5 Things

Around the blogging world, lots of people are doing these "5 Things" posts where they share 5 things that most people don't know about them.  Instead of tagging just 5 people to also do a post, Natasha at Schue Love, tagged EVERYONE!  So I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon and do one too.

1.  I was born in Chester, England.  My parents are Canadian, my older and younger brother were born in Canada, but I was born in England when my dad was transferred there for 2 years with his job.  Most people assume that he was in the military, but he was a Chemical Engineer.  So technically, I have triple citzenship... England, Canada, and the United States.  

2.  When I was growing up I always thought I'd have 4 kids.  Now that I'm older and have a baby, I think I'll be happy with just 2.  Raising babies/children is a lot of work and takes a lot of time and a fair amount of money.  And since I am committed to being a stay at home mom, I now think that having 2 children would make a lot more sense.  

3.  In the Freel Family, most of the birthdays fall in October and November.  My dad, older brother, and both Grandpas were born in October and my mom was born in November.  Now my 2 nephews also have October birthdays and my niece and Noah have November birthdays.  It makes for a very busy (and expensive) 2 months.   Maybe we should try to plan for a spring or summer baby next!

4.  Growing up I went through phases and jumped from wanting to be an architect, to the other spectrum of being an orthodontist.  In 4th grade I remember drawing floor plans by hand ALL the time.  I loved designing huge houses... maybe one day I can apply that love and design a house for myself.  

5.  I have travelled to more foreign countries than the number of states I've been to.  This is partly because in high school we had a teacher who arranged trips to Europe and one trip was a whirlwind vacation of 5 countries (England, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands) in 1 week!  While I can't say I really got to experience each country to the extent I would have liked, it did give me a taste of what countries I'd love to go back to.    On the other hand I have not explored as much of the United States as I would like.  I would love to go to Texas, Seattle, Portland, more cities in California, Chicago, New Orleans, Hawaii, and the list could go on and on!  I guess I should start planning some trips!  

I love reading these "5 Things" posts and hope that I keep seeing more of them!

  1. Love all the new pictures of Noah in your recent post, especially the one where he peed in the tub, too funny!

    That is really interesting that you have triple citizenship!
