I’m still noodling away on my happiness post, and when I finally finish it, it’s probably going to be a gigantic letdown. I’ve been talking about it for weeks now! But today, I want to talk again about being an entrepreneur. I’ve talked about this a bit before, specifically in this January post on the
Who writes a blog post on the Sunday morning of a long-weekend? Well, I do! Because it just so happens to be the 5th of the month, and we are 10 months into my 30-before-30 project, and just two short months away from my 30th birthday. I woke up this morning at 6:30, baked some
Every time the Bing Hawaii commercial comes on I do a little jig at my excitement from the song. So imagine my delight when my wonderful couple this weekend selected it as their walking up the aisle song. I refrained myself from doing a jig, but I did come directly home to figure out just
The last time I got a haircut was on May 7. “That’s only 6 weeks ago” you’re thinking… And you’re right. But I didn’t get my hair cut on May 7, 2012. Oh no friends… I got it cut on May 7, 2011. And up until this morning, my hair came past my waist. Long
Last year on Mother’s Day, I told you all about my mom, which may have left you wondering about my dad. And what better day to talk to you about my dad than today, father’s day. From as far back as I remember, I’ve known that I was loved. My dad, much bigger than me.
I have a love/hate relationship with garage sales. I love happening upon garage sales with good deals and sweet stuff. I hate heading to garage sales with a particular item in mind. I love garage sales where people are just trying to clean out their homes, and price their goods accordingly. I hate garage sales
I’m always looking for fun (and nice looking) ways to store my jewellery that are not only esthetically pleasing, but practical too (if it’s not easy for me to put my necklace away, you can be sure that it is going to end up on the counter). I found these old frames on sale at
Inspired by my friend Melissa, I signed up for the Scotiabank half marathon in June. I was kicking butt on my training and plugging along ready to try to beat my previous time of 1:49 in May 2010. (The reason I like running is that picture. See that crazy happy face? Yeah… that’s at 21.5km.
As promised, today’s post is going to be short and sweet, here is a sneak peek of what is about to go down in my front yard.
Rejection sucks. A lot. One minute you are going full speed ahead thinking “Holy crap. I’m going to win this!” And the next minute: wham. “Sorry. You didn’t make the cut.” When I learned I had not made it to the next round in Tourism Richmond’s 365 Days of Dining contest, the emotion came in
Yesterday was a very exciting day for me! Not only was it day one in the voting competition for the Richmond 365 Days of Dining competition (vote for me!) but, I finally met my lovely blogger friend Melissa of West Coast Nest, after almost a year of being super close on the internet. It actually
Today’s Travel Tuesday? (Ooh! Alliteration!) You guessed it: Richmond, BC! I’ve not spent that much time in Richmond (yet), but with a little help from you… all of that is about to change! Starting today, April 24th through next Tuesday, May 1 (at 4 p.m. PST) I need your help! And I need it once
Good morning friends—both old and new—I’m so excited I could just about burst! If you are new here (and I have a sneaking suspicion that lots of you are today), welcome! If you are a regular, you might be wondering just what is going on… well, I have great news: I made the top 12
Happy Friday friends! Remember that amazing place I told you about in big time stress mode on Tuesday? Well, we found out a couple of days ago that we got it, woohoo! Move in day: May 15. We’ve got the top two floors (including the attic, with it’s sweet sloped roofline) of this 101 year
In place of Travel Tuesday this week, I need to vent a little. Last week I sort of left you hanging, and I apologize about that. Despite the fact that we move around—quite a lot—I always forget just how long it takes to settle in to a place, and when I’m in settling in mode
