Blogger 411 Link-Up

Today, I was planning on doing a little re-introduction post to let my new readers know who I am. Wellll, one of my favorite bloggers is hosting a Blogger 411 Link-Up on the same day, so I thought, why not participate? I like answering questions!

First, hi everyone! I'm Chantal and I'm the blogger behind the blog! Thanks for stopping by! (And keep reading for a fun treat at the end!)
How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I've been blogging for quite some time, but this particular blog began when Brandon deployed, July 1, 2010. So just over two years now! Has it really been two years? I love writing and sharing, so blogging was a natural progression in my internet life. This blog has changed from a deployment diary to a pregnancy diary to life with a baby!

Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
UCCS - University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. It's a mouthful. I majored in History, with an emphasis on 19th Century America (love!) and minored in Philosophy.

Where have you traveled?
Where haven't I traveled? ;) I've lived in Canada, the US, and England. I've been to Wales, France, Mexico and Australia on top of that.

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
New car!

What is your favorite movie?
I like a lot of movies, but I can watch Forrest Gump and Where the Heart Is over and over again. (Closely followed by Love Actually. And Ever After...)

What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
Water please! But I love a good beer.

If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
Is it lame to say Target?

If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
Ellen Page. I like her :P

What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
I first worked at a little place called Boondocks Fun Center, as a Point of Sales cashier. I eventually became a supervisor there and was paid crap. It was an interesting job working at an arcade/go-kart/mini-golf place! I also worked at Home Depot for a summer, and 

Show us a picture from high school or college.
Because I like to see my old embarrassing photos, here's three!
Ok, not embarrassing. Proof that I WAS in ROTC! I looked good in a uniform, huh? ;)
Claw hands. I was 17, Jess was 15. Yeah, I wore glasses.
In France, when we lived in England. See that boy to my left? That's Jessica hehe.
Oh, you said ONE photo? Whoops.

Show us the most current picture of you or you and your family.
Lastly... Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
1. Why does my voice always surprise me?
2. I get an email!
3. Penny distracts me so I forget how to talk.


  1. You are so much less awkward than I am in vlogs! I always say "Um" like 85 times in 2 minutes. hehe I have no idea where I'll be in 5 years. Hmm..

  2. Yes, I agree with Mrs. K. Much less awkward in vlogs than I am. I always get nervous speaking into a camera. Anyway, I would spend a shopping spree at target too. You aren't alone!

  3. A major in History with an emphasis on 19th Century America? That would have been a fascinating major!!

  4. Awesome.

    I love Forrest Gump too. Great movie. I own the soundtrack.

  5. Haha! I thought you got an email! Recognized that sound. ;-) And my answer was pretty much the same as yours - homeschooling the current baby and hopefully having one more by then. Oh, and I chose Target too. Not lame! Lol!

  6. Loved to see your vlog! It was kind of cool to "meet" you and Penny! :)
