Proud to be a Northwest Girl

Watch out! This post is not meant to offend! I am mostly just responding my my sister's blog post about how she feels she is getting more European. There are a few stereotypes that Europeans have about Americans...we are fat, sloppy, wasteful etc.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, I feel that I am none of these things!

1. I exercise daily.

2. I have minimalist shoes. This is definitely a trend that is catching on in Seattle!

3. I have a techy cell phone.

4. I love camping and hiking and generally being outside.

5. I recycle anything I can. I don't believe in Styrofoam.

6. I drink coffee beverages like a fish.

7. I bike to work. (And I just started mountain biking)

8. I generally eat healthy food. I don't eat fried food (at least most of the time!)

9. I probably wont have kids until I'm a little older. (This is probably a city girl thing v. a Northwest thing)

10. I am a foodie. I love going out to eat and trying new foods, especially ethnic foods that I have never tried.

11. I am a gear head.

There are many more reasons I am so proud and happy to be a Northwest girl! I will have to come up with a few more and share them later. Happy Weekend!


  1. I am glad you are a northwest girl! I do have to let you know honey, that fish don't drink coffee. I am not sure what Europeans think about Americans. I think they don't like our pride. As we pretty much think we are right about most things. I think they don't like our friendly chatty ways. It will be interesting to find out more about their culture. You green active girl...go girl! Mom

  2. I like all your "polaroid" pictures! I think the NW is pretty great myself :) You're also not super loud which I hear Europeans don't like... but I can't really say since I've never been there.

  3. You can definitely have some... I'll save some for you :)
