    MMMMMM Summer

    We're nearing that time in the year in the Okanagan that we're only given 2 weeks of neutral weather...not too hot, not to cold. Come May it'll get hot and stay hot for 4 months. It's glorious. So to prepare, I've been organizing our house. Out with the winter clothes, in with the summer.

    Layla is in desperate need of shoes, so Grandma bought her 2 pairs for her birthday. Seriously....HOW CUTE ARE THESE???

    Pair #2, I would wear these if they were my size...sadly, they don't make them in elephant size. Boo.

    Ack! I can't wait for her to wear these! In no time at all they're going to be scuffed, dirty, grass stains, food will get spilled on them and who knows what else...

    Another part of my annual "prepare for summer tradition" (is that a thing?) is to buy a new bathing suit...and lookie here! I found myself a super cute suit at Winners. Can't beat it for 29.99. I look like a 1940's goddess in it, you know...not that I really think that highly of myself or anything :P

    MMMMMM Hooker fave. Time to get rid of this dark berry polish, and bust out the prostitutes...I mean, the hooker pink polish....

    Oh and you gotta love this 50mm lens wide open- it's like butta.

    Bring on the sunshine!!!! PLEASE!!!!


    Andrew Allen loves the Volcano

    Here is my buddy Andrew :) Some of you may remember that I took the picture that is now on his CD cover!

    Well he is stuck at the Calgary airport trying to get to the UK and I was forwarded this by a friend who works there and said he's made quite an impression on the Calgary Airport. Gotta love Andrew's attitude. Can take a crappy situation and turn it upside down :)

    I hope you can make it to the UK soon Andrew!

    Who knew weeds could be so beautiful

    One of the best parts about being a mom is that I get flowers often. Paper flowers from school mostly, but every spring a certain yellow flower pops up in the yard and immediately it's picked and displayed in our home. Nope, not Daffodils...I'm talking about Dandelions. Ugh. "Weeds" is what I was told they were growing up, yet I still remember picking them for my mom. They're yellow and they made her happy when I gave them to her (and I do recall a smile on my dads face when I gave them to him too) so in my mind, they were a flower.

    Today I got a knock at the door and opened it to find this...Aidan holding 3 dandelions and saying "I picked these for you mommy". I immediately grabbed my camera and snapped these two pics of him holding his tiny boquet of weeds. Makes my heart soar a bit.

    "Are you going to put them in water mommy?" Why yes I am Aidan.

    "Why don't you come watch me pick dandelions mommy?" Ok Aidan, I will.

    "Look! I found another one mommy!"

    And so I had a small bouquet of flowers. "Beautiful" I thought. So much so that I had to take a picture. The only vase small enough to hold them was a votive candle that we used at our wedding in 2008. Nonetheless, it's beautiful.

    "Mommy, you love dandelions?" Yes I do Aidan. "I know, you love them everytime!"

    And now I have a few more. So many that they don't all fit in the candle holder. Aidan told me he likes it when I smile so that's why he wanted to pick me some flowers. *tear*

    What's this? Aidan has a.....BUCKET of dandelions?????

    "You love them right mommy??" uhhhhhh.....yes?

    Well, what can I say? He wanted to make me happy, and he did. He picked me some beautiful yellow flowers and managed to weed my yard at the same time ;)

    But wait....he wasn't done...

    So here I am with 2 buckets of dandelions, yellow stained hands and one smelly little boy. But we both have smiles on our faces. I'm going to cherish these little kid moments. Thanks bud for my beautiful flowers

    I heart Tina Fey

    I really love Tina Fey. Maybe a little TOO much. Actually as we speak I'm watching 30 Rock- I'm pretty sure I'm going to see Date Night again, and when my wonderful husband surpised me with a trip to NYC for Christmas, I spent most of my time looking for Tina...just one of the reasons I insited we go to 30 Rockefeller Center ;)

    To prove I was actually there (and TOTALLY scoping the crowd for Tina)

    I even bought a tshirt from NBC studios :)

    And that's why I LOVE LOVE LOVE this video. It makes me happy. Especially the part when she yells at her staff and tells them they'll never alter drapes in Atlanta again...oh how I've felt like that on the worst mornings....

    Tina! Be my best friend!

    Happy Wednesday!

    Back to the grind...

    Today was my first day back at work and what a great day it was! Today was the Predator Ridge games (I think) and we got to take a peek at the brand new golf course. BEAUTIFUL! What a gorgeous view of Okanagan lake. I can imagine that's going to be a popular attraction when it opens this summer. I'm not a golfer and even I was impressed. It was also really nice to get to really experience everything Predator Ridge has to offer. And my teammate/tour guide was fantastic! He knew EVERYTHING about the resort.

    I brought my camera and snapped away. Hard to pick a favourite...ok I lied, I think the nail polish is my favorite....
