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 the costume department. In 2009 work sent me to Alberta, Canada for the film “Inception”. That was the moment where I met my Canadian husband Jeff – on top of a snowy, snowy mountain.
I’ll give you a brief explanation for 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 CANADIAN!!!!
In the beginning the blog was a way to keep family + friends updated while I was in Hawaii for my wedding. And now it still helps me stay connected to loved ones + keep them up to speed 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 Vancouver! Traipse through Alberta! Wander Ontario! Jeff + I are a couple of thrifting, vintage hoarders, so you’ll encounter some of that craziness as well!
We wrangle two half Yankee half Canuck toddlers + they are a hoot! I spend a lot of my time chasing these two around while 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!!!
