15 year old quotes

Playing clue with the Fam Jam and K asks to play another game. J says he’s way to tired for another game and proceeds to clean it up. Then says okay guys I bought a new game for us to try I’m going to show it to you. K says so let me get this straight you’re too tired to play another game but we have to sit here and listen to you explain another….

K says to J “You know for a guy with a PhD, you aren’t very smart”

K says “Do you want to know what I was thinking when you defended your thesis” J says “Not really” K says “Well, I’m going to tell you. I was thinking OMG get me out of here, when is this gonna be over. This is so boring”

J says what are you doing A? A says “Blogging. I just did a post called 15-year-old quotes” K says about J?

Mini Posts Daily

Blogging. Each Day. Even If. It’s Just Mini Posts.

Melting Pumpkin Marshmallow in my Scentsy warmer today. Love the scent even if J doesn’t. Don’t love it as much as Coconut Lemon Chiffon. I’m hoarding my last three wax squares as it has been discontinued and I am not sure I can live without it’s scent……..

T is growing again. Need to buy need new onesies and sleepers. She’s a giant baby 🙂

This week’s plan includes using my Body Media and being more active.

Good Night!

Halloween and Cheese

It’s Halloween! K is going as Fun Dip. J and I are handing out candy.

There was no cheese making this month but that just means double the cheese making next month and double the cheese blogging as well. In preparation for my October cheese choice, my family and I have tried 3 different feta’s this month, Cow, goat and sheep! Thanks to the Italian Centre in Little Italy, which is right up the hill from my house!

Until next month my friendly cheesepalooza enthusiasts!

Happy Sunday!

It’s Sunday, a lazy day for me. I worked a bingo last night for K’s dance. 8hrs on my feet was killer.  I am hoping I burned calories doing it!

Today is J’s birthday!  We are going out for dinner at a Japanese place called Nomiya! We’ve been there once before and enjoyed it! They have a vegetarian ramen bowl, so it’s J’s new favorite place.

K is off getting a massage to relax today. I am thinking I should have also booked a massage or something today but didn’t so I will just relax. My pointsetta from December has started dying. I don’t think I watered it enough. I wish it was not dying as I got a red glitter one this year and it was quite pretty!

I also a trying out this extreme couponing thing.  It seems to be a pretty big fad.  So I’m jumping on the bandwagon and am going to test out my skills as an extreme couponer! I’ve gotten some good tips fro quite a few sources, wish me luck!

That’s my lazy sunday! Hope everyone had an equally lazy Sunday and relaxed!

It’s November……

So after an extremely high stress month of October and a miserably failed “every day” blog post month.  I am still blogging away but there is far too much going on.

I missed all of Veg*ns of Alberta‘s events for World Vegetarian month.  But have promised myself there is always next year and next year I will rock world vegetarian month.  I have gone dress shopping and can’t decide on a dress.  I feel torn between two dresses I want and keep wondering why are they so expensive and should I spend this much on a dress/why am I not an amazing seamstress.  I have continued to be a Sparks leader even though it was alot more work than I had thought it would be when I first signed up, but I am loving it!!!!

K has an amazing report card.  She blew her classes out of the water!  I am so proud of her!

I am off to the lower mainland on Tuesday to visit family and scout out ceremony/reception locations and to look at renting a dress (which seems like an amazing option right now).

Through out everything this month my friends have been amazing and have been there for me through it all what I would do without them is unknown cause I’d probably just completely fall apart!!

Even with everything going on I am extremely happy and have a positive outlook and I know it will all fall into place and I will find my rhythm again it might just take a little longer than I thought.

Lazy Saturday Fun

I slept in this morning, it was nice.  Then took K to tap class and then we went out for lunch at Kyoto.  We had a bento box 🙂  Warning to all with nightshade allergies……Tempura Eggplant looks suspiciously like Zucchini until you bite into it 😦  I know, I know I should have asked….Life on the food wild side is probably not for me.  Then we ventured to Kingsway Garden Mall and sauntered around in home, bath and body stores looking for a house warming gift for J & R.  They just bought a house and their housewarming is tonight, so I am looking forward to that!

Now I am blogging as a tool to avoid house work …..  We are having thanksgiving at our house this year and have many friends coming over.  So I should get going, so far off the list is laundry and dusting.

Fort Edmonton Park, Friends and Fun

Sunday, we spent the day at Fort Edmonton Park, thanks to an awesome invite from our Friends SB&S along with R.  We have a great day and it was 32 degrees Celsius outside!!!!!

Fort Edmonton was busy, but not too busy and lots of fun!!  We had ice cream and pickled eggs.  Although, there are better pickled eggs out there!

Later we packed for TREX for a prep meeting for a canoe trip down the North Sask. next weekend!  Then dropped K off for her TREX meeting!

Once K got home we had a spinach salad!  It was heavenly!

Spinach Salad!

  • Spinach
  • Almonds
  • Vegan Bacon Bits
  • Strawberry vinaigrette
Then J and K sat down for a grueling homework session. They made it out alive an hour and a half later!
