Heartbeat

The other night Raiya wanted to goto sleep on top of me...something she does once in a while - she’s still in our bed! This is what inspired this post...I started thinking how fast her heart was racing. Then I realized I often think that with her. I’ll also start think about how long she’s…

Los Angeles

California was a success! We stayed in the LA area. Landed in the LAX airport and stayed with relatives. We rented a vehicle for the week so we were free to drive around as we chose as opposed to being dependent on family. It was my aunt (in-laws) house and we had a fab time…

We’re ALL going!

Today, we’re all going to California for the week. I’m excited but also nervous...thus this entry.  Raiya has been travelling with us since she was born! She was only 3 months old when we went on a week long road trip through Alberta on a rented RV (recommend this style travelling to all new moms).…

Circuit training

I came across this article and love it because it gives soo many different options!  You can mix them up to create any combo. I find that sometimes you just need some inspiration for a circuit, this just lays out everything so well! There’s still so many more options but sometimes I feel like I…

Thankful

I started this blog for myself this year, it’s kind of an experiment and even though it’s only been half a year since I started this, I already thought countless times that I should quit! I haven’t used my DSLR camera once to post any picture on here and we’re so busy, I can’t keep…

December festivities

We’ve been doing Christmas activities where ever we can fit them in, mostly all weekend long.  We kicked off the first week of December (first to third) full of events.  Took the kids to the mall to get Santa pictures.  We had great timing, there was absolutely no line up.  Another family went right after…

Oil vs Serum

Ladies!! I’m so excited to tell you girls…I just bought some Pixi by Petra products. I bought a dual combo, I’m not sure if it’s regularly packaged together, I believe they’re just doing it as a limited edition. I bought the Glow Tonic (exfoliating facial glow) and the Glow Mud Cleanser. I was so excited…

Making it werk

Last weekend while Christmas shopping with my kids, being curious, I stepped on a scale at the department store (by the luggage area), I couldn’t believe it! I was heavier than I had ever been in my life! I weighed more now than I did 9 months pregnant with either child! I have never owned…

The night we met

November 24th 2010. It’s a night I’ll never forget, it’s embedded in my heart and I’ll treasure it forever. The night I met my man, my love, my everything! Years ago, before we got married, I would’ve thought that once married, this day would no longer be as special but every year when it rolls…

Decorations are up!

It’s kind of funny how when I’m busy I keep going and can get lots done but when I’m coasting, sometimes you just do the bare minimum (even when you do have the time to do more) but I suppose that when I re-energize and take time for myself.  I hadn’t posted much activity from…
