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…

It’s November

It did get cooler in October but it was still beautiful, the kids were out everyday. In rolls November and we’ve got snow!! I feel like this is a month that I generally don’t remember as the years pass. Maybe, I just want to fall into hibernation at this time every year because there’s a…

Happy Halloween

For those of you with little children, did you go trick-or-treating? We did. I feel like there just isn’t as much hype as there used to be from when we were kids. I could be wrong, maybe it was more exciting as children but I really feel like there used to be so many more…

Honey Salt

Last night we went to the new Parq Casino in Vancouver. Wow! Is what I’ve got to say. The other two couples we were with kept comparing it to Las Vegas! It’s definitely cleaner than Vegas but no where near as big or as grand as any of the major hotels there.  It just opened…

My lil Zaiyn

I’ve been seeing so many positive changes in my son lately, I feel the need to document them, I need this so I remember. I was reset after my trip to Laguna Beach. I’ve been in such a better head space since then, I’ve been more patient and light hearted about things that would’ve frustrated…

The Dirty Apron

My birthday fell on a weekday this year (which seems to be the case for most of our special dates for 2017). Kawar surprised me on Friday, before the weekend following my birthday. I called him as I was thinking of extending my shift but he told me ‘no’ and to be ready by a…

Monster Bash

I feel like I shouldn’t even post this one anymore but it’s been typed out for a while now! Just haven’t gotten around to posting until today! The second birthday party (going back to September) was for a little guy, just turning 1! We drove out to a Community Centre in Richmond for this one…

Sand and Surf

Today, I was on my own for the day as my sister was in her conference. I did some shopping, got some 'me' time, wrote in my blog and just relaxed by the poolside.  During my self reflection time, I came to the realization that everyone changes over time.  Its a good thing, I know…
