  • Holla!!

    So this weekend it was absolutely pouring in Vancouver, but Mike and I were headed to the Sunshine coast… It’s gotta be sunny there, right?

     

    Sure enough, one short ferry ride away and we were in the most bountiful serene location with nothin but sunshine…

    Mike was filming a wedding, it was my thought to go to the coast and just unplug from everything. Just get away and try to totally relax…

    We had lunch at a cafe called Wheatberries Cafe. The bread they make is AMAZING…

    Pretty good cookie too:)

    Sechelt, BC (where we were) is the home of Holy Crap cereal. I remember I took this picture as a joke of this cereal, A) because of the name, B) Because of the price- it was $12.99 a bag) But recently, I saw this stuff on Dragon’s Den and I learnt what a big hit it is. I just may have to try it. We saw the factory right in this really small town. A true success story!

    When Mike took off to the wedding, I spent a lot of time laying on the beach, (I spent as little time in the motel room as possible- it was ghetto!!! But then I decided to paint my nails. I don’t have a nursery to paint blue right now, so I did my nails in honor of my son instead!

    I’m now 22 weeks pregs. Things are going pretty well. I’ve had more appointments for this and that. I wonder if I wasn’t self-employed, I might have been fired by now with all my appointments. Also- I feel super blessed for the medical system we have because my pregnancy probably would have costed like $20,000+ in just the first 5 months! But everything is looking up now. I am coastin on easy street for the rest of the pregnancy.

    At the Women’s Hospital I saw this little incubator. First time I saw a real one in person. Tugged at my heart strings. It was a donation box for babies who need extra help, I gave a donation and a prayer to any babies that may need the help.

    My new “motto” for the pregnancy is “Live and Let God”.

    We are busy packing and getting ready for a move. Less than a week now- As you can imagine, it’s a bit nutty, but I’ll keep ya posted!!!

  • Hellllloooooo!

    Oh wow, I’m sitting back at my desk in my apartment in Vancouver and I am very happy to be back to work. While I was in Yellowknife, I was lucky enough to have the most incredible hosts (Craig and Marianne) who really did show us soo much that The Northwest Territories has to offer.
    One of my highlights was playing a couple songs at Twist, where we shared the stage with some local talent-including Digawolf. Digawolf is based out of the NWT. He has played with artists such as Sam Roberts, Painting Daisies and  The White Stripes. I love his music. What does Digawolf sound like? Mr. Waits and Mr. Leonard Cohen at a jam with Hendrix while Hank Williams and Stevie Ray Vaughan sitting back and relaxing with drinks and friends, and a great sense of a connection between spirit, dirt and earth. Watch his video for his song “The Trapper!”
    He has a new album coming out which will be done in the Tticho language, to honor the language and the culture. For more info, click here.

    Thanks Digawolf- best of luck to you. You are awesome.

    Here are our last couple shots of Yellowknife before we left.

    One lil trick I picked up along the way, is if you start feeling a bit under the weather, place a few drops of Oil of Oregano under your tongue. It is a powerful antioxidant and can help build up your immune system at the first sign of a cold. I feel like it saved me while I was up there.

    You know when you are away, you have such a great unforgettable time, but it’s always good to get home:) I did the dishes and tidied up before we left, so when I walk into our place it was a very welcoming feeling. First thing Mike and I did was dropped our bags and went for a lil walk around the neighborhood, it was such a nice night. Then we had some dinner and went down to the HOT TUB….ahhhh….

    Home Sweet Home. Time to work hard and get ready for next trip!

    Do you have any tricks for fighting of a cold or keeping your immune system in check?

    Let’s stay 100% healthy this winter!

    Have a great day!
