These are my confessions V11

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

I confess.... I have totally lost my motivation to exercise lately and it is driving me crazy! I don't know if it a combination of having company or being on vacation or just laziness but it's gone.

These are my confessions V10

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

I confess...... that I love gossip magazines. Especially now that it is nice out I could lay outside and read them for hours! I think I find them such an easy and mindless thing to flip through and sometimes the stories are actually quite amusing.

I discovered an app on my iPad as well that I can digitally download/subscribe to them which makes it even worse.

Do you read gossip magazines?

Busy is a perfect word for the last 5 days!

Here is a quick recap of what I have been doing the last few days (excuse the iPhone quality photos)

Working on my days off

Enjoying Stampede (several times already)

Apparently the guy behind us isn't have as good of a time as we are........

Spending time with my cute nephews

And enjoying some of the beautiful weather we have been having

The Stampede has officially kicked off and we have lots of plans to partake in the festivities (including eating some deep fried oreo's)

Here a few things from my week that made me smile......

1. Cuddles from a sweet girl while we were camping
2. Two new necklaces I bought - 1 for me and 1 for a friend
3. My garden growing like CRAZY
4. Breaking out my cowboy boots (eek I think they still have dust on them from last years rodeo!)

As I type this post I am watching the Stampede parade from my office window as well.

Anyone else headed down to the Stampede this weekend? If you don't live here have you ever been?

Campfires, Cosmo’s and Crown Land

We spent the weekend with some good friends and their adorable 3 year old camping. Friday was a day off for both of us so Thursday night we set off with our new trailer for its maiden voyage!

Our weekend was filled with beautiful surroundings, smores, camp pies, wine, cosmo’s, Lalaloopsy dolls (I am now VERY knowledgeable about these after playing with them for 4 days ha ha), Saskatchewan punch (one can pink lemonade mix, and equal amount of gin plus three can’s of beer), campfires, sunshine and TONS of laughs.

I am still trying to get the smoke smell out of my hair!

How was your long weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
