Good morning!

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone has been doing well lately! So I have some news!!! My little brother Travis is getting married!! The girl he is marrying is someone we have known for almost our whole lives. When she was little she used to call me her big sister because she is an only child. Now I really get to be her big sister and I am completely thrilled!!
The cool thing is I will never forget when they got engaged because it was the day before mine and Brian's six year wedding anniversary! I guess I should mention that my husban built me a fabulous new folding table in my laundry room for our anniversary. It is exactly what I wanted and it is all decked out right down to the solid oak trim!

Last weekend Katie, Lorraine and I headed to Edmonton to a retailer event and had a blast! We learned some really cool things and the new product coming out is OMG!!! The bank account is going to be a hurting unit for awhile I'm thinkin'. This is one of the projects we made. You can see more on the store's blog.

Yesterday Hailee turned 10. I can't believe my little girl has "double digits" as she would say. I am feeling a little old today. She got spoiled as always. We bought her 2 new outfits, a DS case, a laptop and a computer game. Austin gave her 2 singstar games for the PS2. Friday night she has 3 friends coming for a sleepover and saturday the rest of the family is coming for cake and gifts. Here are a couple of pics from lastnight. I fooled around with some of my cake decorating tools. I think it is a good thing I am signed up to take the classes this month, lol!

Ok at the request of many I also took some pictures of one of my hermies yesterday. This is Slater. I don't think he was overly excited about my camera flash but oh well. The other one is sparky. Sparky is a little shy though. As for the rest of my crabs, I am not sure where any of them are. They have all dug holes in the tank and are hiding. I am not sure if this means they are all ready to molt or what. In fact the other night I dug them all up to check on them and I still haven't found one of them. It is my smallest one so I am sure he is there somewhere.

Lastly I have decided to make a huge change in my life. I have recently quit at the after school program and today is my last day babysitting. Monday I start work at the local grocery store. They did not know how many hours I would have to start with but my 1st week I already have 30 hours! This is the first time in six years I have actually worked outside of the house away from my kids. It is going to be a big change, but I think it will be for the best. Think that is all I have to say for now. If you made it to the end of my post kudos to you!!LOL!!

A blog to share

I have been watching this blog for quite some time. The woman that created it used to be on a forum that I was a member of years ago and I have always been a huge fan! Thought I would share her blog with you. She also gives away some pretty awesome blog candy too. Great place to visit for inspiration.

Happy Family Day weekend!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's day yesterday! I know I did Brian brought me a dozen pretty pink roses! Today we are heading out to Mom and Dad's for a bbq roast and a visit. Also gonna stop at the store and plan IT kits. Had to add Brian's new favorite song to my playlist. It is Hate my life by Theory of a deadman. Please excuse the language. Pretty funny actually. It kinda makes you happy even though it is a hate song. Good beat though.
Last week we had a family tradgedy. Herman, my very favorite hermit crab passed away and left us for the sea in the sky. It made me panic so I went out and bought all new soil, toys and food for my hermies. That is 2 that I have lost in two weeks. The only thing the pet experts can think of is that I was using all sand instead of a mix. Well, it's a mix now!!

Grande Prairie was great! Baby Tanaya is getting so big! Michelle and I had a blast and it was so much fun to see Gord and Shauna! Ginger and Horace became fast friends. Horace is a monster of a bulldog and my little girl held her own pretty good. I shoulda took pics though.

Sorry not much else to say today. Maybe later! Have a great weekend all!!
