Weekly Obsessions – July 12

12 Jul

Looking at Old Photos – I don’t know about you but I love to look at old photos and re live some of life’s best memories. Recently I lugged out my giant rubbermaid container from storage and busted out all of my old photos with my best friends. Most people relive memories, I relive embarrassing stories, what can I say something’s never change. Including the fact that I was meant to be a cowgirl! We must have laughed for hours, now just think, if I did this once a week I would have some serious ab definition. Check out these beauties:

Important note – my hair and makeup have definitely improved… my personality however, is exactly the same 🙂

Vacation – Yeah vacation, I am jetting off to Sonoma and San Francisco tomorrow and I can hardly wait. I am so excited to see wine country, the golden gate bridge, relax and eat some great food. I promise to tell you all about it.

See you fools in 4 days!


So it’s been a couple weeks…

7 Jul

So it has been over 2 weeks and I am SO sorry! I hope that you missed me as much as I missed you. I am not one for excuses but I thought you  might like to know why I haven’t been writing. I recently made a big move from Burnaby all the way to Aldergrove, I know I am crazy right! But it’s for all the right reasons, we have bought a house and are renovating it. And boy has it been fun… NOT! I have basically been camping for the past week, definitely an experience. I would like to say the worst is over but we haven’t started the kitchen or the master bathroom so I am sure it’s not. In light of all this I am pretty thankful for a few of life’s luxuries that I definitely used to take for granted.

A Refrigerator – I have been living without one since June 29, not cool at all. Tonight mark’s the first night I will get to enjoy cold beverages again, oh and actually go grocery shopping. If only you could see the excitement in my face… pure joy really!

Floors – We had to rip up all of the floors in our place imagine, stained carpets, the lingering smell of cat pee and hideous tile, no thanks!  Replacing the old floors was no easy task but this past weekend the boys finished installing them and they are beautiful. Goodbye cat pee, hello shiny new hardwood.

A Bathtub – It has been over a year since I have actually been able to enjoy a bath. Let’s not jump to conclusions here, yes, I have bathed in the past year I just haven’t been able to actually soak in a bathtub. The place that we were living in before only had a stand up shower so I wasn’t afforded this luxury. But now it’s on..

Now that everything is as back to normal as it’s going to be my blogging is back on schedule…I promise!
