Springing into Action..

Despite the foot and a half snow that fell, my heart and soul are feeling the signs of spring in the air, with spring comes the one and only time of year cleaning makes me smile. It seems that during the early days of spring, once the days run longer and the mornings come earlier I feel the need to clean... "Spring Cleaning" lightens my mind, and makes me and my house less cluttered, however, it is a hell of alot of work....
SO far I have concurred the kitchen, and TV room and for the last, way to many hours I have been trying to get a grasp on our bed room, wow do I have alot of stuff!!!
Went through some jeans today, have sizes 1-11... crazy how things have changed including  me!
    Now that my energy is finally starting to return after a long few months of stress, change and over a week long cold, I am slowly going to get control of my house and life again...
My goals!
take more pictures...
Do more scrapbooking
enjoy more friend time
hug my pets 
snuggle with mark
enjoy my new job
catch up on Desperate housewives, Y and R, days, House, and all the other many shows taking over my PVR
get my fracking taxes day
take the dogs for more walks
get my BUTT to the gym
ok ladies, keep me accountable!
That is all for now!
take care

OH happy day!!!

First things first.... GUESS who is getting published for the very first time???
Little old me!!!
Canadian Scrapbooker(an awesome Magazine) was on our cruise with us and chose little old me to be published in there next issue! I was thrilled!!
Here is a not so great pic of the winning LO, sorry about the pic, didn't have much time, in a dark room!
My girlfriend Jackie was just as excited as I was, since it is her cute little butt getting published!!! I would love to get published too if I had a wee butt like that!!
Can you believe that our little girl is already a year old!!! shocking~ we had a mini celebration last night, Mark even went and got a cake!!!
Isn't she the cutest!!!! She is badly in need of a hair cut, but I love it when she is scruffy like this!! Not easy to brush however
Can you believe how much she has grown in the last year!
Funny she still loves to chase/catch/attack any big toe in her path!!
Not even two pounds when we got her!!! awesome!

as per Jodi's request!

“Go into your photo archive, pick the 4th folder in the archive, select the 4th picture in the folder, and write about it. Then tag 4 other people to do the same”for those of you that don't know, this is my middle child Jake, I think he gets a bit jealous of our cats, so in this picture he is cuddling up in the base of the cat post, hoping to a sneak up on the kitties, and chase them around a bit, and two, he likes to cuddle in things that enclose him and keep him warm...
I going to change the rules a bit, I am not going to name anyone, however, would love to see your pictures, so if you HAVE TIME, please, do this, it is fun, and the send me a message so I can go check it out!!!

My latest Addiction!

In hopes of keeping myself warm over the last few very windy days, I have a developed a new addiction...
Twilight!! -I know I am not new, everyone is reading it, but I now know why!!
I am almost done book one, and Honey got be book Two as a belated birthday gift... 
I am finding that it is just the thing I needed to keep me warm. It is amazing how it brings me back to my teenage hood, puppy love, me against the world!!
I remember clearly my first true love, this books sure brings me back...
Have any of you read it?
if so what memories did it bring back for you???

snowy days are awesome however...

I miss my warm water beaches, clean white sand, hot blazing sun, mind blowing sunsets and all my new and old scrapbooking gals!!!
Now to be fair, yes that is a picture of me, taking a picture of the sunset, however, I did have a bit of help from photoshop!! the silhouette is me, but taken from another photo(on top of the Calgary tower) I took it from one photo to all tot his one, think the effect is kind of neat-o!!!
OK gotta go visit family, perhaps will write more later!!
