Another year, Another hunt!!!

I can hardly believe a year has passed since I was last playing along with the scavenger hunt over at! And another year means another massive list of items to hunt for :). Lucky for me, my family is happy to play along too.

If anyone can direct me in the way of a David Hasslehoff poster, it would be much appreciated - lol!

Clickin' away I am

My next obsessive project is underway! This time, its participating in a fun game of photo scavenger hunting. Over at, I've set out to capture a massive list of random things over the course of July. Grady, Ryan and yes, even Dan have gotten in on the action and lots of fun is being had so far.

Here's a sneak peak of a few of my recently found items:
Two people Dancing:

Side walk chalk Drawings

Thing that drives me CRAZY! (crazy is not even the right word for what THIS makes me!!!)

Child in Sunglasses

And the list goes on and on! I'm having a blast doing it, and who knows - maybe I'll be the lucky one to walk away with the GREAT prize pack.

New Endevours

I think a lot of moms come to a post baby cross roads in their lives. They have these beautiful little bundles of joy, are able to stay home with them for a full year (Thank you Canada!), and then its time to come with a plan as to how your going to be a full time mommy, make some moola, and find satisfaction and purpose in both.
When I made the choice to get into social work, I did it before I had kids of my own. My dilemma is that I don't know that I can give 100% to both... wait, scratch that. I know I can, many many do. But I don't know that I WANT to.

So, I've been dabbling in some new ideas. Hence my new passion and project - Photography. I am by all definitions of the word and amateur. But I am learning, practicing and am building on a dream I've been thinking about for years. Here's some pics of my beautiful pregnant sis, Rachelle. She was a very patient model! And I think we got a few gooders. So for your viewing pleasure, photoshoot # 1 ever!


Mmm, good!

Are you a cupcake love-a? I know I am! Come get your fix this week at the Farmers Market in Big I, 10- 1! I'll be there getting my cupcake on :D

You win this one little man!

In the world of Mommyhood if you've heard this little gem once, you've heard it a million times - "Pick your battles". Our day today started out as one of those days. So lunch time rolls around and goes something like this (ahem):

Me - Grady your yummy lunch is ready. Come get in your chair.

Grady - silence.

Me: Grady, did you hear me?

Grady: Yes! I no like it.

Me: You don't even know what it is yet!

Grady: No Mommy. I no like the CHAAAIIIRR.

Me: Since when? You always sit in that chair?

He then begins to crawl under the table and says in his sweetest little question voice "Grady eat down here?".


Even though the thought of No way passed instantly into my head, I stopped for a minute and thought "why not?" Grady then raised his victory flag, happily took his little plastic plate under the table and had a grand time eating.

I truly think he thought he was on a big adventure under that table.


And what you may ask did Ryan think of all this? Well, I'll let the picture speak for itself!

Yes little man, you won this one hands down. Now lets all be sure not to tell him that I'm ok with that. That would take all the fun out of his lunch-time victory.

p.s. Yes we were all still in our pj's at lunch time. Don't judge me! lol.

Whoa nelly, that was easy!!!

So I've wondered for a while how all these neat bloggers get their pictures to come out bigger than mine. As if she read my mind one such blogger Kelle Hampton posted these intructions.

So this is my trial run. Let see if it worked!

Yay!! That was easy, and all you lucky readers (all 2 of you ;)) get to see a nice BIG pic of my Ry-boy.
