These are my confessions V5

Link up with Leigh's confession's post........

I confess........
I hate folding and putting away laundry.  I prefer to leave it in the dryer and fluff it several times then put it on top of the dryer until we wear it. I would show you a picture of what it currently looks like but it is WAY to embarrassing!

I was intrigued by this picture of the laundry room IN the master closet……… I wonder if that would help….

Blah.... Monday and end of vacation

I think the title says it all. We are back from an amazing 10 days in Los Angeles and back at work today.

However the weather is not nearly as warm.....

Breakfast is not the same without this cute little garden area to eat in at our hotel in Santa Monica The Ambrose
















There are none of these here.....

















Or these........
















AND there is nowhere decent for frozen yogurt.......





















BUT I know summer is coming (eventually)......


We are going to Seattle in June so I can stock up on more of this deliciousness (I am bringing back as many as I can)
















And my waistline is probably thanking me for not eating frozen yogurt everyday (besides a Menchies is open now in Airdrie!).

Five years ago today.......

Five years ago today I was doing this..............




Today is our 5 year anniversary.  I can hardly believe it!

Our wedding day was amazing day surrounded by family and friends and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

I thought I would share a few of my favourite pictures from that day with you.......

These are my confessions V4

Link up with Leigh's confession's post........

I confess........ I have read all 3 of the Fifty Shades of Grey books and actually quite enjoyed them. Don't get me wrong there is a LOT of sex in them but I was intrigued by the underlying story. 

My overall opinion was that they were an entertaining read, the things I didn't like paled a little in the shadow of a really sweet endearing love story. And who doesn't love a love story? Boy meets girl and falls in love and has some hot sex. The end.
The second and third books delved deeper into Christian's background and you get a better understanding of why he acts the way he does. I found that the more information I got on him the more his actions made sense to me.

I don' think the books are for everyone and some people will definitely not like the content of them but I did!

Blogger Award!

The other day, I was awarded a blogging award by Leigh from All You Need is Love.

I was truly excited …and surprised for receiving this award! What flattery!  Leigh…if you hadn’t already received the award…I’d be giving it to you! You and your blog are amazing. My readers…if you haven’t checked out her blog…you should!



I am nominating (in no particular order):


Rebecca @ Lot 65

Heidi @ Life in Pink

Jenn @ Lotus & Pie

Ariffa @ My Cup of Tea
Five random things about myself:


1. I am crazy organized.... like list making, meal planning, excel sheet vacation planning organized.  It drives my husband crazy sometimes and my co-workers tease me about my weekly "to do" lists but it makes me feel better especially when I am busy.

2. I don't actually enjoy movies that much.  I think it is the sitting for that long I don't enjoy. I always want to watch them but then never want to take the time to sit and actually do it.

3. I have a serious shoe addiction......... I think I probably have around 85 pairs right now. I always feel good in a great pair of shoes.  If I am feeling "fluffy" or anything else along those lines my shoes ALWAYS fit and make me feel a bit better.

4. I am a total Daddy's girl.  My Dad raised me from when my parents divorced when I was quite young until he remarried when I was 15.  He is one of the strongest most amazing people I know.

5. I have never had the chicken pox. I went to get my immunizations updated and they told me I was actually immune to chicken pox.  I like to call it my super power. Ha ha

So what is the Liebster Blog Award? Well Liebster is a German word meaning dearest or favorite and this award allows the recipient to share 5 of their favorite blogs that have 200 followers or less. We also get to share a little bit about ourselves along the way!

Weekend Recap

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had amazing weather here the whole weekend and spent most of our time. 

Saturday included having a garage sale and making chocolate cupcakes.



Sunday was spent planting our garden........


and planting some of our flowers (I hate that they don't look like much when you first plant them).....



and getting a sunburn after a day in the sun




and ended with some yummy homemade pizza!!





I loved being able to spend so much time outside. It finally felt like spring was here!

These are my confessions V3

Link up with Leigh's confession's post........

I have been having fun with these posts the last few weeks. Both with writing my own and reading other people's.

Here is my confession for the week...

I confess ……….I am so not savvy when it comes to blogging. I feel like I am trying to constantly figure this thing out (and maybe sometimes get a tiny bit frustrated – possible lack of patience but that’s a different confessions post). I know my blog needs a little "love" and it will get there eventually.  In the mean time I am having fun with it all and slowly but surely learning.









If you have any tips and tricks I am happy to hear them. NO offense taken at all!

Date night outfit

Love this date night outfit. It is a great combination of casual and a bit edgy. I think blazers are perfect for spring since it isn't quite warm enough for bare arms yet. They are also great for dressing up just about any outfit.
