We went to a Superhero Themed Wedding and It Was the BEST


We went to our friend’s wedding. They hosted it at the zoo which meant we got a free zoo pass during the day. We had fun for two hours at the zoo and then went to the reception. Best wedding ever.  There was mini golf, mini games, table hockey, a bouncy house and hoops. There was great music and dancing…

October’s Autumn Colours


Oh Hi October. You are halfway finished already. The wind has blown most of the leaves off of the trees outside but at the beginning of the month weren’t you a celebration! A splendor of colour that lifted the spirits and was drunk up by the eyes. I love you, October. I used to dread you and the end of…

A Saskatchewan Vacation to Visit Friends


So I grew up in Saskatchewan and during University I ended up needing a place to stay and found a townhouse with a friend. Well, really, if I’m to be honest, a frenemy.  BUT she was living with this fantastic girl that was destined to become one of my bestest friends ever. And this summer we had the privilege of…

Sun & Salsa Festival 2013


  So this weekend was packed but wonderful. Basically, if I am allowed to sleep in for more than an hour I am happy. On Friday night I think we just did movie night at home, enjoying “Home for The Holidays”. (Our Friday night movie theme this time is Robert Downey Jr’s movies. Before that was all of the Bond…

“Maude” and “Lloyd” go on an Adventure


My friend Randey and I go on outings. Silly things. Like the stuffed gopher museum and other things even seniors would enjoy. Nerdy outings. Visiting ghost towns or checking out diners. I have a soft spot in my heart for diners and 50’s fashion….but this time we went to a thrift shop type store. On our trips we go by…

Thrift Shopping Finds


My daughter is mad at me. She is super angry that we thought Isabella was a more suitable name than Wonder Woman. What a kid. She is always entertaining us with random comments like this one. The other day I got to go thrifting with my friend Randey. Except on our outings that could only be loved by nutballs like…

There’s Something About Autumn.


I went running the other night. I had to trade in my shorts and tank top for long pants and a long-sleeved running shirt….okay, so not a real running shirt but a long-sleeved pajama shirt of the Husband’s. Same difference. I set out at the same time I always do; after the kids go to bed and some things are…

Kalispell, Montana. Part 3.


Day Three, February 12, 2012. Our Final Day of the Trip! Our last day in Kalispell! We had to get going that day, so after a quick breakfast in the lobby (blueberry muffins and coffee again, with a tiny bowl of Froot Loops on the side), we got going. We talked to the desk girl a little about the sad…

Kalispell, Montana. Part 2.


Day Two, February 11, 2012 After our long baths and some quiet reading (we are both voracious readers) the first day, we slept fitfully and we were wrenched from our sleep by the alarm. We threw on some clothes and I put on a toque to hide my morning hair before heading down to see what the free breakfast offered…
