About Me – Professor of Canuck Studies
How’s it going, eh?!
It’s Shelli! Thanks for visiting!!!!! I am a Japanese-American valley girl from Los Angeles who works in the film industry in costumes. In 2010 work sent me to Canada on the film “Inception” + that is where I met my Canadian husband Jeff – on top of a snowy, snowy mountain.
Let me give a brief background on the title of my blog. When Jeff + I were dating – we mostly emailed, texted + talked on the phone since he was in Vancouver + I was in Los Angeles. “Howzitgoineh?” was his usual greeting over the phone – SO very Canadian!!!!
I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with family + friends while I was in Hawaii getting married to my crazy Canuck. Now that the wedding’s over, it still helps me stay connected to loved ones + keep them up to date with what’s going on in my life!
I will take you on a journey of my adventures, mishaps + good fortunes, as I make my way around this magical, wacky land called Canada! Join me as I gallivant around discovering my new home, Vancouver! Jeff + I are a couple of thrifting, vintage hoarders, so you’ll encounter some of that craziness as well!
We wrangle a half Yankee half Canuck toddler + added another baby to the family! I spend a lot of my time chasing my maniacal son around with the baby + looking like a hot mess.
It’s been 4 years since I moved to Canada + I am still acclimatizing! Please join me in my attempts as I take a crack at demystifying the Great White North!!!
Love you all!!!
