I Bet You Didn't Know...

1. ... that at the age of 16, I asked Mike Comrie (yes, Mr. Hilary Duff) to marry me via a very large sign at an Oilers game. Lucky for me, he said No.

2. (in keeping with the hockey theme)... I invited then Oiler, Jason Arnott, to my 10th birthday party. Since it was my golden birthday (10 on the 10th), I figured I needed a special guest. I legitimately thought he would come. He did not. However, 6 months later, I received an autographed photograph of him in the mail. It was addressed to me and I apparently lived in 'Edmondton" (dude doesn't even know how to spell the name of the city he played for). 

3. I took singing lessons for one year in grade 7 and at my recital, I sang "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. The best part? I was in full mermaid costume. 

4. At the age of 3, my brother peed in my eye. Yes, you read that correctly. Whilst having a bath together, my brother informed me that I "had a fire in my eye and he needed to put it out with his hose". When he put it like that, I had no choice but to have him extinguish the flames. I needed my eye, right? Wrong. That was just his way of peeing in it. 

5. While at a 98 Degrees concert, at age 13, I was approached about becoming a model. They fully recruited me from the massive line up of screaming, pubescent pre-teen girls screeching, awaiting the arrival of twenty-something-year-old men to serenade them. Clearly, that fell through.

6. At aforementioned concert, I was given a rose by Nick Lachey. That's right girls. I can feel your jealousy from here. He placed the single red rose right in my hand. He wanted me. 

And that concludes this edition of "I Bet You Didn't Know...". 


  1. haha that's awesome. I can't wait for the next edition. I hope the insider info is geared towards more recent events in your adult life!

  2. Oh my gosh, those made me laugh really hard! Thanks for sharing!!
