I’ve been tagged- 5 facts Meme

I have been tagged! Lovely LisaRene from Unique Little Bits tagged me to share a bit about myself. Check out her own wonderful answers here.

This is the first meme I’ve ever partipicated in but since she asked, I will share 5 random facts with you and then I’ve tagged the people below to do the same.
Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Since everyone else seems to be showing pictures of themselves as a child- I thought I’d give you two.

This first picture is me at one year old. Obviously I was taking my eating seriously hence the hard-hat. 🙂


This is one of my favourites -it’s me on my fourth birthday. It’s clear I was having a ball opening presents in my jammies.


Just the facts now – (really there’s more than five in there- but they’re grouped ’cause above all I’m a greedy guts 🙂 :

  1. My eyes are green-grey-blue and they change colour depending on what I’m wearing or my mood. If they’re blue watch out-it means I’m very upset.  My hair has also changed color it was black at birth and grew out white blonde from the roots -so I was a punk baby before my time. Now it’s naturally dark golden blonde.
  2. I attended 17 different schools in Utah, Nevada, California and Ohio before I graduated from high school.
  3. I catered my own wedding with help from my lovely aunt and mom. There were 150 guests and we had a 4:00 wedding followed by a cream tea- we had a whole lot of food. Our friends Jeff (the chef) and his honey Michelle- also brought two more of the most scrumptious dishes all the way from the bay area.
  4. After my wedding I worked as the cake baker/decorator for a small patisserie. The worst mistake I ever made while baking cakes there was to leave the sugar out of  a batch of 25  lemon-poppy seed Genoise that I was baking.I just got distracted for a moment. They came out looking all shriveled like golden brains.
  5. One of my favourite ways to spend a day is a “Jammie Day”- Where we get up, shower and put on fresh jammies, make a ton of brownies, cookies and other snacks  and watch our favorite movies all day. Old movies are my favourites.

That’s probably more than was needed. So now I am tagging:

April at Cookworm– she’s my Blogging by Mail partner, a fellow Daring Baker and her Chocolate Tangerine Semifreddo is next on my list to make. She has a great blog!

Melody at Fruit Tart is another fabulous Daring Baker- check out her Death by Chocolate! Mmmm!! She’s recovering from the flu so send her many get well wishes and let her know she gets extra kudos for playing whilst getting back in the swing of things. xoxo

Susan at Sticky,Gooey,Creamy,Chewy  yet another Daring Baker (we have so many wonderful members) her blog is SO amazing and she makes me drool with her Almond Brioche and other delights.

Tempered Woman– yep you guessed it another Daring Baker. Well she just plain cracks me up- I love her sense of humour and she has a fabulous blog. Check out her Rich Salty Sweet Peanut Butter cup brownies.

Dhanggit at Dhanggit’s Kitchen is just as sweet as can be, another Daring Baker as  well and you must see her Toblerone Mini cakes-oozing at the Heart. OOOh! A special thanks to Dhanggit because she’s already been tagged once and was sweet enough to let me get her twice. xoxo so she’s my honorary tag-ee.

Ruthie at Spoonbread for Hieronymus is also my choice -I love reading her wonderfully diverse recipes. Everything she does is a great read and I’d love to learn more about her. Check out her Coconut Curry Noodle Soup.

Love to you all- can’t wait to learn more of you.

    LisaRene- Thanks for tagging me! And thanks for the lovely comments!
    Changing schools at least made me learn to adapt to my surroundings quickly- although I still hate being the new girl at anything. 🙂
    Take care

  2. LisaRene says:

    Wow Gabi, 17 different schools, I can’t imagine how hard that must have been. What a character builder that would be!

    Love the idea of Jammie day, such a nice way to spend quality time with your husband.

    I bet the food was phenomenal at your wedding, certain to be much better then had it been catered.

  3. Gabi says:

    Maryann- Thanks- I knew you’d feel the same way about Jammy days and old movies. xxoo

    Courtney- Thanks- I know if you did your own wedding it would be amazing with your flair and style
