Happy Thanksgiving America

Today is Thanksgiving in the US and I’m making a nice dinner for my American man.  Mom, Dad, Kristin and Kyle are all coming over to my tiny apartment for Turkey and all the trimmings.  I’ll post recipes and photos of my spread and I think it’s important (and maybe a little scary) to note that I have not cooked a Thanksgiving turkey in at least 10 years!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family and I’ll be having dinner on the beach next year.

To My Momma

I just wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day to you and I wish I could’ve been there for brunch today.  You’re the best Mom in the world and I love you a lot.  Thanks for being there for me through all the craziness and good times over the years.  I’m glad we got to spend the time together last week and I can’t wait to have brunch in the Beach with you when I’m back.

 

I know I posted this photo before but it’s the best 🙂  Love you Mom.

Halloween in Ft Myers Beach

So you may have noticed that I went MIA in the middle of my 30 Days of Blogging Challenge.  I don’t want to talk about it so I’m not.  All you need to know is that I’m back and better then ever!

Regular blogging is starting again today.  I’m going to try and post daily so we’ll see how that goes.  I’ve had quite the adventure so far this month.

My mom sent me to Florida for a week at the end of October to clear my head and visit my cousin who was home for vacation.  I really needed the break after the stress of the month and it really helped me put my life in perspective.  I feel like a brand new girl and it’s time for me to do all the things I’ve wanted but couldn’t being tied down or with responsibilities.  I’ve got to look after me and Harley now and he’s pretty easy going :)

I’ll be sharing more about these new ideas in the coming weeks but right now I want to show you all the wonderful things from Florida.

Me & Tanya

Day 1 was Halloween at The Buddha – it was pretty fun but Tanya and I were tired so we went home early.

On Halloween night Tanya and I got dressed up and went down to a grown up house party with our family.  Had some drinks and snacks and then went over to meet up with her brother Kris.  We walked in to Kyle getting his costume on and he needed some help doing his makeup.

It was even funnier when his mom came home.  Then we headed over to The Cottage to meet up with Jenny & the Harlem Globe Trotters.  The girls looked so great and I had an awesome time.

It was so nice to wear a dress and no jacket outside.  I didn’t bring a costume so I was going as a Canadian and then Tanya found these clip in horns.  Apparently my devilish ways worked in Florida :)

So fun to hang with my cousins and Florida friends.  I could totally be an island girl

Kyle’s rack is courtesy of Tanya & I as well.  We’ve got bra stuffing skills.

We had such a blast on Halloween and then I met Captain America.  Who knew spandex and tube socks were so hot?

Almost have the rest of the vacation photos up and I’ll post later today.  For a look at them all click HERE

It’s Christmas Eve

And it’s snowing! Maybe we’ll get a white Christmas after all. I am very excited to see my family and give them the presents I’ve bought and made. I’m almost ready and just have to get one last minute present, in case my knitting project doesn’t get finished in time today. Oh and I need to get Harley a little something because he has been a very good boy this year. I’m going to forego the Show and Tell this week, for now, because I just don’t have the time to put it together before we leave for our parent’s house. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday with family and friends.

Merry Christmas!

Haha… Here’s another photo of Harley in his sweater. He got it from my sister and doesn’t really like to wear it itl, but it’s so funny to put it on him and watch him walk around.
