Day 4 – Your Dream Job

Is being paid to cuddle kitty cats an option?! Well it should be! My somewhat unrealistic dream job is to open a kitty cat cafe where people would come snuggle cats who looking for homes, and then eat my delicious baked treats! 😀

I would also love to spend my life CREATING and selling what I make! I love making stuff and making things happy so spending my whole day doing that would be super cool.

Day 3 – Your Favourite Quote

If there’s ever a movie that sums ME up, it would be Alice in Wonderland!! Really I could have picked almost any quote from that movie, but I really like this one. I like changing, finding new interests, and constantly become a new quirkier fun person. Sometimes a couple of times in a day!

Day 2 – 20 Facts About You!


  1. My entire house is painted PINK and is covered in rainbows and unicorns. It’s like a visual representation of inside my brain!
  2. Actually almost everything I own is pink… I got stopped today by an older lady and was told I was the pinkest person she’d ever seen.
  3. But I was much more of a tomboy as a kid and REFUSED to even look at a dress until a couple of years ago
  4. I don’t own a single pair of pants now (dresses are spinny and fun!)
  5. But I’m hardly squeamish. If there’s a lost little worm on the sidewalk, I’ll give him a helping hand.
  6. You could say I have my head in the clouds… and I do actually have a glider pilots license (I haven’t actually flown in nearly 10 years though) and even taught classes in aviation for a few years!
  7. I never did get my drivers license though!
  8. So I pretty much walk EVERYWHERE (though of course I bus to work)
  9. I also ran my first half marathon this year. I love running and being alone in my own head without any distractions! Also running gear is very fluorescent so that is a definite bonus!
  10. I collect a LOT of cute stuff (you could say I collect collections!)
  11. I love documentaries and cooking competition shows
  12. I have degrees in history and legal administration, and have taken a few courses in web design. I really enjoy school and if I had more time and money I’d take classes forever!
  13. This horrifies people… but I am a very proud morning person. The only reason I don’t wake up before 5 is otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stay up until past dinner time hahaha
  14. I have way too many hobbies so I am really never bored.
  15. I have awful social anxiety. Part of my reason for this blog is to push through some of my biggest fears!
  16. But I also LOVE dogs (and all other animals!) My parents have a golden retriever named Heidi who is also my best pal
  17. My idea of a perfect day is spent baking, knitting, and cuddling my cat
  18. I absolutely LOVE all breakfast food. I will frequently have a bagel or waffles for dinner.
  19. I also love eating everything SPICY
  20. I don’t really like warm beverages but I think coffee smells AMAZING.
My Hello Kitty kitchen! I have somehow acquired a few hundred Hello Kitty bits and bobs

I love chasing after rainbows through the forest near my house!

Day 1 of the 30 day blog challenge!

Day 1 – Your Blog’s Name

How did I come up with my blog name? Well really, WHIMSY AND WHISKERS just struck me in the middle of the night (sorry, no big wild story!), but really sums up me and my life up perfectly!

Whimsy – If there is one word to describe me… it would be WHIMSICAL! I love the sound of the word and what it entails. It’s fanciful, colourful, playful, unusual, silly, just fun! I’ve never fit “in the box” and I’m pretty okay with that!

It’s hard to lose me in a crowd 😉

and…

Whiskers – Well this one is OBVIOUS! I LOVE CATS. I was able to adopt my first cat this past spring (as a child my dad was allergic so despite my constant begging, I wasn’t allowed to have my own – but that didn’t stop me from cuddling every single cat I could find!) and she has become my very best friend since. Yes, I’m a proud crazy cat lady.

So to sum up, WAW (wow!) is a blog that is all about me, my cat, and our adventures.

Yes, we’re a definite kooky pair!

Tah dah! Day 1 DONE!

(I’m having trouble with uploading pictures onto my blog right now 🙁 so sorry for the boring text post!! Working on solving this silly thing.) Edit: SOLVED!
