10 things you didn't know about Marielle LeBlanc

Let me start by saying how happy I am to be part of this awesome team , I am really honored !!! When I tried  to explain to my husband why this was such a big deal , I used terms he could understand....I said "it's like if someone drafted you to play hockey  for the NHL" (without the pay of course !!) ...he got it !!! :)

#1- I am a French Canadian (I'm sure you had all guessed that with a name like "Marielle") but I grew up in a bilingual small town, so I have always been pretty comfortable with speaking French and English.

#2-When I turned the big "40" my husband got me a rocking chair !! Not because he thought I was an "old lady" but because I was 7 months pregnant with my youngest !!!  I sure used that chair A LOT!! Still do !

#3-I have a bit of an addiction to Diet Coke and Starbucks coffee.
I usually order a Grande skinny vanilla
latte.  Mm...one would be great right
                                                now!!!
#4- I love to cook and  if  I wasn't a nurse, I would love to own and run a B&B  (I'd have a linen service take care of the laundry...I hate doing laundry !!)

#5- I don't watch a lot of TV, but my must see TV shows are : "How I Met Your Mother"  , "The Big Bang Theory"(that Sheldon cracks me up !!!) and "Two and a Half  Men".

#6-I love the color TURQUOISE and someday when I finish my scrap room  I want at least one wall painted in this girlie color !!!

 #7- I love playing with LEGO'S !! and I just finished this pizzeria with my son and I love watching cartoons and kids movies (I'm a big kid at heart :) )


# I love candy - Jelly Bellies and Lindt white chocolate are my favorites.

#9- I was kind of a geek in school .

#10-My first job was working as a sales girl at my mom's wool store,
        I also thought knitting ....(yah see.... a geek) !!!

Thanks so much for spending time here today on the Imaginisce blog, I'd love it if you came to visit and followed  my blog -Le Scrap de Marilou  and see why I was chosen to be on this design team (I'm still pinching myself ,thank you Imaginisce !!!)
Cheers.
Marielle
