My favorite things - Canadian Edition

Tomorrow is Canada Day which got me thinking about some of the things I love about this beautiful country.

1 - Our awesome (hot) celebrities. We grow 'em well up here! I could stare at Ryan (both Reynolds and Gosling) all day, and to know that they were born right here on Canadian soil makes them that much hotter.

Kim Cattral - the queen of all things sex (and the city...)

Evangeline Lilly

Both Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling (seriously WHY arent they together anymore??)

2 - Poutine - even as a vegetarian, every now and then I give in to the deliciousness that is Poutine.

2 - Nanimo Bars - I dont really know what it is about them that makes me devour them... its probably all the chocolate.

4 - Kelowna/The Okanagan - Its always hot in the summer, there's oodles of fresh fruit (cherries... mmmm) and beaches and lakes everywhere. Definitely my favorite Canadian summer destination.

5 & 6 - This feeling right here...

... and here...

...and here... (Our national anthem always give me chills... especially at hockey games)

7 - How colourful our money is!

8 - Timmies - The most glorious coffee - and a staple for any road trip.

9 - Our beer commercials (and our beer)

10 - And last but not least... the pride that I get when I am able to say "I'm from Canada". There are no pictures to explain that feeling...

So Happy Birthday Canada!! You dont look a day over 125.

I often times find myself wishing I was from Canada. And, as you know, I LOVE your anthem. LOVE it. And Timmy Ho's is the greatest! Luckily we had them ALL over Buffalo. And who doesn't love Mr. Reynolds??!!
