Things I Love... Carrie from Ohdeedoh

Hello, I’m Carrie from Ohdeedoh. Given the economy, I can say with certitude (yes, that’s a real word!) that my favorite things this year were being gainfully employed and having a healthy family.  But that’s big picture stuff.  It’s the little picture stuff that makes life fun.  Here’s a small sampling of things that made this past year a little bit easier, more interesting and delicious for me.

Things I Love...

  1. So happy that mustard yellow is cool again! Avocado green can’t be far behind!
  2. Sugar Plum Lip Treatment by Fresh is perfect for lazy women like me.
  3. I had no idea how attached I’d become to my iPhone this year.
  4. I love building up my son’s library and have become semi-obsessed with finding good ones at thrift shops.
  5. Trader Joe’s Chocolate Croissants are hands down the best thing in their freezer section. And I ate way too many of them this year.
  6. My son and I would not have survived the year without Brooklyn’s numerous parks and playgrounds.

All about me...

My name is…
Carrie McBride

When I grew up I wanted to be a…
Travel agent with a desk and a phone (I could not have dreamed of the internet).

Instead I became…
The managing editor of Ohdeedoh (I got the desk and phone at least!)

My secret talent is…
I can recall minute details from experiences that occurred years ago (like soup garnishes from 1994).  So far this talent hasn’t proven very useful.

Most people don’t know that I…
Taught archery at summer camp.  I use “taught” rather loosely here.

My go-to song for singing Karaoke is…
Anything from the Xanadu soundtrack.

If I were a superhero, my name would be…
Grammar Girl.

And my superpower would be…
Grammer.  Er….grammar.

My favourite indulgence is…
Cheese, bread and wine.

If I could go back and give one piece of advice to my teenage self it would be…
Don’t sweat math class.  You’re not going to use it as much as your math teachers insist you will.

If I wrote an autobiography, the title would be…
It’s Nice to be Nice.


Share the love!
