Miscellany Monday (AKA: Brain Dump), our Anniversary Date, and a Contest/Giveaway

Happy Monday! Be prepared for a brain dump, and pictures of our Anniversary:)

I am linking up with for my weekly MM:)

First, I would like to congratulate my blogger/Facebook Friend Stacy over at on the birth of their 6th baby, Ezra.

So, on to the post of the day. I was going to do this post in the form of a letter to my "subjects", but I didn't think it was going to fit this time.

I started watching Hot in Cleveland last night. I have seen a few eps before, and I loved it, and I wanted to watch it from the beginning. It is quite sad that our library only has the first few seasons.

I just heard that Hudson's Bay is going to buy Saks. I wish they would buy Tiffany:)

I also just heard that golfer Hunter Mahan left his golf game (while he was in the lead, no less!) to be with his wife at the birth of their daughter. I am so proud of him. What a guy!

The fruit I am having is amazing right now. We are…

Ten Things of Thankful-Marriage Edition

Since today is our Anniversary, and I am reading Safe Haven (about a woman who has left her very abusive husband) right now, I thought I would blog about the TTT in/of our marriage. My husband is (and isn't) a lot of things, but he is kind, caring, and loves me for who I am.

I am thankful for....

1. That Hubby honestly doesn't care on what (or how much) I spend my money on. He only cares if we are really strapped, then we are both really careful.

2. Even though I am overweight, and not a healthy weight, he loves me anyway.

3. Although I sometimes wish he were the bedroom, I am thankful that he doesn't demand "it" every night.

4. He doesn't care what I do with my time. I can be out all day, and other than for safety reasons, he doesn't care whether I check in or not (but I usually do).

5. He loves my family, and WANTS to spend time with them.

6. He doesn't care on WHO I spend time with. We do have an understand that we don't s…

5 on Friday, and SUYL

Hello, Fellow (ess??) Bloggers!! Happy Friday! (or as Paul Harvey used to say "It's Friday!).

I am linking up with for SUYL this week, as well as my 5 on Friday with the girls:)

ONE My NEW favourite song this week is from Point of Grace. I am not ashamed to say that I have almost all their CD's save for their favourite hits CD, and a Christmas CD or two (I think they have 4 Xmas CDS out!!). I have listened to it...oh I don't know..about 10 times this week? In my car. Alone. TWO I made my own iced coffee this week. Milk, coffee and Equal and it was devine! It was really good!!!
                The Royal Baby; Prince George. Yes, I AM the person that bought (or rather, will buy, since it isn't out quite yet) the People Magazine and US Weekly Mags. Despite my infertility issues, I didn't seem to have a problem with watching/seeing it on TV. I know a lot of other of my infertile frie…

Our Love Story and Our Wedding

I have been wanting to do a wedding post, since I had seen one done on a blog awhile back, and since it is our anniversary on Saturday, I thought that today would be a good day to do it. I was just thinking that I should have probably have done a love story post; but since I don't have time this week (you know, with 5 on Friday, and Ten Things of Thankful, I am a very busy blogger!!), I will combine two in one. I also think that I have already done a post on our love story. But I will do the Readers Digest Version:

We met online (through a dating site), and chatted online over the summer of 2006. He had moved to our town from Alberta a year or so before, and was living in the church that he was attending. Well, I moved closer to where he lived; from one area of the city to another, and we started talking on the phone. A lot. Then we met. Our first date was a bit awkward, but we seemed to hit it off, so we met up again. We knew we wanted to get married in November, and December we …

Girls Getaway (not really a full) Wknd!

My sisters and I usually do a couple of girls days during the year. We usually do them here in town, and they are pretty fun. This year, we upped the ante, you know, because we are cool and fun like that. We were missing one sister, as she is in Calgary, but she was with us in spirit!!!

My SIL, C's family has a cabin about an hour away in a lake. I had never been to this particular lake before (well, maybe when I was child we picked berries near there or something), so not only was I going away with "my girls", I was also going somewhere where I had never been before. Double fun!

I had to work Saturday, which was a bit of a bummer, but am thankful for the job, so I won't complain. I just wish that I had more time up there. Anyway..the girls left their end around 930, and had some time before I got there.

Anker drove me half way, where C and V met us, and we continued on. As soon as we got there, we jumped in the lake. It was SO beautiful:) I went in a total of 4 time…


Happy Monday, ya'll!! (yah, see I try to talk American!!)

I am joining up with for MM:) I am going to do things a little differently today. I have seen people doing a post in the form of a "letter" to people, places, and, here goes!

Dear Monday: I am actually starting to like you. You are a fresh start to the week.

Dear CTV News (and of coure, Kate and William): Thank you for going into labour today. I am in my glory watching the constant coverage. Please name your baby (if it's a girl) Charlotte Alexandria Diana Elizabeth. Do not name it George if it is a boy.

Dear Nay-Sayers of the Royal Family: I know the Royal family is pretty much irrelevant, but with all the horror going on in the world, we need some good news. At least it's something GOOD to read about, right? And let's face it, it gives us a break from the Kardashians.

Dear Off ClipOn: However invented you is a genius! I heart you. A lot. You seemed to work (s…

I'm Just so Tired..

First off, I will write about my girls getaway tomorrow, or Tuesday..Whenever, cause it is my blog, and I can do what I want, right?

Also, just to warn you, this is a grumpy post; please feel free to leave comments, but if they are not positive ones, then don't bother. Yes, I am also aware that 90% of this is self-inflicted, and I am aware that we got ourselves in this situation, and that I am aware solutions on how to get us out. I am venting. If you don't like a venting post, well, stop reading now.

I am just so tired of being broke all the time.
I am just so tired of living under people who's floor was put in a year ago, where you can hear everything. All. The. Time. (subflooring was clearly not considered, or not put in properly)
I am also tired of living in a 1970's building that has very little (noise) insolation.
I am just so tired of eating like crap, and not exercising.
I am just so tired of not having the job that I really want (or goes along with my schooli…

A Weekly Wrap Up!!

I was thinking last night and today, that one COULD be kept blogging EVERY day, well, with Miscellany Mondays, Wordless Wednesday, 5 on Friday/Friday Letters (more on that in a bit), Ten Things of Thankful, and a weekly wrap up. That doesn't even count on your reflection blog posts. That is when I become very panicky/anxious and overwhelmed regarding my blog, and blogging in general, but then I remember that blogging is supposed to be fun, and not a chore, so I just blog when I can, and when I feel like.

I came across a blog yesterday that I really liked. I loved her blog posts, and the way she constructed her blogs. I have seen one in similar formats before, but she has a day where she does Friday Letters, where she writes letters to "things", Products, people during the week. I think that is a cool thing to do. I also had seen a couple of other formats on her blog; Confession Friday, Currently I am...and It's Okay (like they do in Glamour Magazine) posts...there we…
