Happy New Year!!

Yes I am home at 11:02 pm on New Years Eve....
I did just hang out with the family.
Went to dinner and saw TRON for the second time.

Now I have to make a Birthday Cake for a little miss who turns the big ONE tomorrow, and play some Rock Band obviously.

I do have a little shindig I can run off to just to yell happy new year and all that jazz, but I can't lie... Someone there is a bit of a "B" and I don't really want my new year to start off with that.
Just saying.

Plus I didn't wash my hair today haha.

So to all my lovelies here; near and far.
I wish you the most wonderful evening doing whatever you want on the last moments of 2010.
Mega Smooches!

I'm slowly but surely catching up today.
I'm going to go meet a friend for lunch, and get in some after Christmas thrifting in while I make my
way to the other end of the city.
It snowed really bad again the other night so the roads are crappy, and making me a little grumpy haha.

I have some pictures to post from our little family christmas along with some goodies.

I have a list of things I need to get done today:
Post Office
Figure Out My Cell Phone Plan
Edit Engagement Photos
Sew a Plush Camera
Groccery Shopping for Cake Supplies

Here is a sneak peek of two of the photos from the shoot I did a few weeks ago for a friend who got engaged to her boyfriend on Halloween. He Carved "Will you marry me" into a pumpkin. Adorable.
I'll do a dedicated post later today, I just have to
get out of here haha.

Happy Thursday!

Be Back Tonight or Thursday!

I have been SO busy over the last few weeks of December. For the last 2 days I have just layed in my bed napped and watched tv to catch up on some much needed sleep!

I had a few giveaways planned for December that clearly didn't happen so I'm going to try and do a variation of them this week. Unfortunatley life just got too crazy.

I have a bunch more stuff to list on my ETSY too :)

Take care cookies! I'll be back later!

Second Coldest Place On Earth!

So yesterday Calgary, AB Canada was the second coldest place on earth! First place was Antarctia.
Alberta areas continued to round out the top four places.
That is crazy! It was like -40 with the wind chill yesterday.

I tell you this because I have a mega Flu.
I HAD to go out yesterday.
I didn't see what everyone was complaining
about, it seemed really nice out.
Apperantly my fever was so high I didn't really
notice how cold it was.
I was sitting in hot flash city. haha

However I did make my way over to the Starbucks drive thru so I had something to drink while I was stuck in the winter weather commute. Extra Hot Peppermint Hot Chocolate!
The barista gave me 3 shots of peppermint to sooth my throat, even though my nose is so plugged I couldn't really taste it, coughing was a bit nicer for that drive :)

haha I sound so disgusting lol
I'm getting better. First cold of the winter is always the worst, and I'm getting
it out of the way right at the beginning!
Once its gone maybe I should repaint my

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had the most wonderful day full of ghosts, goblins and lots of treats.
We maybe had 20 kids come to the house, I have SOOOO much candy left over.

This just means that the Halloween Giveaway I was going to list will contain WAY more Candy then I  had originally planned!
The giveaway should have been up a week ago but due to no internet, I was a sad panda.

I will leave you with these 2 creepy pics.
I was a Zombie last night.

I'm off to watch the new Walking Dead Series on AMC. I have been waiting for it to start for ages. A series about Zombies; it's like they made it just for me haha.
Sweet dreams kiddos!
