Khan Family Fun Facts

I always enjoy reading posts when fellow bloggers share some fun facts about themselves and their families. It helps us get to know the writer a bit better and creates that feeling of a more personal relationship, even though you’ve never actually met the person. Here are a few things about our family:


  1. My husband and I met in a bar – I wanted to know the score of the Red Wings game and the rest is history.
  2. I was told I wouldn’t be able to run – 6 half marathons later, I’ve learned that nothing is impossible.
  3. We got married on October 9th, 2010 and our wedding song was Adam Sandler’s “I Wanna Grow Old With You” from The Wedding Singer.
  4. We went to Iceland for our first wedding anniversary and it was truly a life changing experience.
  5. Odin’s name comes from our trip to Iceland, and his middle name, Edward, is after Ryan’s late grandfather – not the sparkly Twilight vampire.
  6. I have a ridiculous obsession with Harry Potter and the Foo Fighters.
  7. I originally wanted to be a paediatric oncologist, but ended up going to business school.
  8. When I was pregnant with Odin the only things that curbed my morning sickness were ginger ale and regular Ruffles chips (breakfast of champions!)
  9. My husband loves all animals, and Odin is following in his footsteps. Odin also loves sports, which he gets from both of us 🙂
  10. Odin went to his first NFL game (Patriots at Bills)  when he was 9 months old and his first concert (Of Monsters and Men) at 6 months.
  11. My guilty reality tv show of choice is Giuliana & Bill.
  12. Odin’s first plane ride was at 16 months – we went from Ottawa to San Francisco and he was a super flyer!
  13. When Odin was born, he was the first grandchild on both sides of our family, and the first great-great grandchild for my now late great grandmother.
  14. My husband has the largest dvd collection of anyone I know – we stopped counting after we got to 2000… (and they are sorted alphabetically).
  15. My husband loves Welland and the Niagara region as much as I do, which I love, especially since he had never even been to that area before we met.

I hope this has given you a bit more insight into our little family 🙂
