Like NinjaEm so eloquently posted the other day, the whole “Tell me about yourself” statement can be tough for me. I often try to be funny and quote the ever-so-wise
Jimmy Buffett Rupert Holmes* by saying, “I like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain”, which is true, but that wouldn’t really help you get to know the woman behind the NinjaMegan posts. So…
I’m Megan, a SAHM and one of the resident foodie Ninjas. I’ve always been into food (I do believe I was the only 10 year old to be checking out Mastering the Art of French Cooking from our small town library) and culture (I have a degree in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia). As a result, I often like to explore cultures through their food – so I love to try out new recipes and foods and play with new cookbooks. Some are hits, some well, aren’t! 😉
When I’m not thinking about food, you can find me doing one of the following: reading, listening to NPR/CBC podcasts and music, watching classic movies, learning about essential oils and natural health, traveling to a Disney destination, drinking wine and running. However, I haven’t been drinking wine or running lately due to the fact that I’m pregnant with our second child, though I’m hoping to restart a light exercise plan now that I’ve been cleared to do so. I like to say that I’m a dabbler in different hobbies and interests – or a friend once eloquently called me a dilettante – which is probably reflective of the fact that I was diagnosed with ADD several years ago. While my ADD can be frustrating at times, I also believe it’s an incredible gift that’s blessed me with many positive aspects as well. So if you see me jumping around topics in my posts, now you know why! 😉
Greg and I have been married for over 10 years now (we were high school sweethearts) and I can’t imagine being married to a better husband. We definitely balance each other out! We live near Vancouver, BC, with Monkey, who’s 3 (& soon baby #2) and we’re pretty lucky to live here as Vancouver’s a beautiful part of the world, has great outdoor activities, a thriving arts community and an interesting and diverse food culture. So from me and my little part of the world, welcome to Being Ninjas!
*Edited to add: A wise (and much more knowledgable music-wise) significant other of one of the Ninjas just pointed out to me that it was Rupert Holmes who sang Escape, not Jimmy Buffett. I always thought it was Buffett – Mind = blown!
