  • Hello my dear friend…

    How was your day? Hopefully bright and beautiful. My was really good *except* for having to take my iphone in to get fixed and finding out it would be $150… Such is life… I’ll look at it as an investment in the cell phone repair industry… they gotta make a living too;)

    Thank you so much if you already have voted. You rock. I love being a part of things like this! This blog is a good platform for cool contests, events and some amazing interviews too.

    Remember my all-star interview with pro model and triathlete Jenny Fletcher? Today I was flipping through Women’s Health Magazine and there was Miss Jenny in her new Oakley ad!

    Good for her. She is amazing.

    I went for a 3.5km run today channeling my inner Jenny Fletcher, but I’m not quiet at her status! ha. I do however have a 10km race this Saturday in Taber, Alberta which I am really looking forward too. Running it with my brother and his wife:) (Mike will be there too, but he is going to be filming.) We are going to make a fun little video at CORN FEST!

    How cool would it be if the race was through a corn maze? (It’s not though)

    Today we had to go out and do a few more shots with one of the Stormtech jackets we are doing a video for. Mike was reviewing the footage I shot because before we can go inside- he needs to know that I was in focus and not to shaky:) Like how I waved HI to you through my shadow?

    Oh, you guys know me…

    Tee hee….

    Painter joined us outside too, but we had to tie the little bugger to a tree. He was chill though.

    I tried to get organized today for our trip (we leave Friday morning), I also wrote out some Thank-you cards to a few of my awesome voiceover clients. It’s something I’ve never done before, but I have been feeling extremely grateful these days and I felt the need to express my thanks.


    Do you send Thank-you cards? Even if you don’t send a card, close your eyes, think about someone you are thankful for and wish them well in your heart. That grateful energy is then out in the universe and it will attract back more things for you to be grateful for! (A little of The SECRET coming through my fingers as I type right now, lol)

    So I’m going to leave on that note today…. I am thankful for you and I hope you take a second to vote.

    THIS BLOG POST TODAY IS  SWAK! (sealed with a kiss)

  • Hello!!

    How was your Monday?

    My alarm usually goes off at about 5:30 or 6:00am, but I knew I’d be tired today since I didn’t go to bed until 2am, so I let myself sleep in and I didn’t wake up until about 9am! I was kinda slow moving all day. I had 2 voice jobs to do today, but they weren’t urgent, so I am going to do them tomorrow. (not like me to put it off, but I needed a rest day) I also had a very ambitious goal of cleaning my apartment top to bottom…that also did not happen.

    Things I DID do today:

    -got new hot rollers at Wal Mart

    -looked into buying new tires for our truck

    -finally got tenant insurance (happy now mom?)

    - made 3 templates for wedding invitations. Now I just need to confirm that we are indeed having the ceremony at 2pm (or 3pm) and then I can send to printers!

    I also think it’s time to clean out my purse…. I should start with putting my ID in my wallet! Yesterday at the festival, here I am in line for the beer gardens and I could not find my ID for about 3 minutes. I took my wallet apart a couple times, finally remembering that I threw my ID  in my little makeup case earlier (why? I don’t know)

    Live at Squamish

    It doesn’t surprise me either that my iphone slipped outta my hands and smashed on the ground:(

    smashed iphone screen

    I guess it’s not the end of the world- but still sucks! At the mall I was quoted $120 to fix it with a good quality replacement.

    I was so glad that Mike could come with me yesterday too. (and not just because he holds my purse while I take pictures! ha- what a sweetheart <3)

    What kind of a face is that?  A rock face? Hardly! Just looks weird. haha

    Whistler Water is having a contest soon on who did the best concert coverage (between me and 2 other awesome bloggers) So I am going to need your votes soon! I will keep you posted on when voting happens. You know how much I would appreciate your support! ;)

    Speaking of support-today on facebook I noticed that my Nana posted a note on my cousin Val’s page, “I am so proud of my creative granddaughter”. I had to get in on it right away and see what my nana was talking about. Lo and behold, among other cool artistic things my cousin Val does, she made this purse….

    Made of:

    old jeans + old shirt + old belt + dollar store dog muzzle = new bag
    homemade jean purse

    That is soo cute! So proud of you cousin. She said it was a pain to hand sew the whole thing, but I think this purse is so awesome. Nice work girly. Can’t wait to see you at the wedding. (Side note-I am sooo excited for my wedding!)

    In other news- I completed my 30 day Raw Vegan challenge!!!!!!! Here was Day 1, one month ago. The crazy thing is- this “challenge” wasn’t even hard!! I lost probably 10 pounds, I woke up with so much energy, I felt clear headed, inspired and happy. Raw Food is not just a “challenge” for me anymore- it is here to stay. I just love how I feel on Raw Foods and don’t want to stop…

    Today I had such a sweet tooth, I needed to fix it pronto, I did a variation of  ”Raw cheesecake”. I soaked some macadamia and pecans for a while, threw them in the processor, added a pinch of salt and some fresh lemon juice..

    Then poured in a bit of Agave Nectar.

    Packed it into a little serving dish..

    Added some fresh raspberries.

    A dollop of raw chocolate sauce and VOILA! A filling, nutritious dessert that I had after a massive salad!

    YUMMM

  • Howdie!!!

    Upon entering Day 2 at “Live at Squamish”, I was greeted with a FREE HUG…… (Phewf, thank goodness they were free!!)

    Live at Squamish, 2011, day 2

    “Aw, come here, you need a hug!” <3

    Live at Squamish, 2011, day 2

    I found myself some more free hugs when I met the Whistler Water team!

    Live at Squamish, 2011, day 2

    Everything around the festival grounds seemed to be running smoothly! Love all the environmentally friendly folks that rode their bikes to the festival!

    Live at Squamish, 2011, day 2

    Awesome Volunteer recycling too.

    One of my favourite visuals was at the Silent Disco. The sign read “Smile, you’re beautiful” (Pssst- it’s true)

    Live at Squamish, 2011, day 2

    Here’s me trying to capture this beautiful energy on my handy flip cam!

    Live at squamish

    Then I heard Metric on stage. Voice of an angel.

    Metric, live at squamishMetric made the crowd happy!

    Weezer made me even happier…. oh wow! I love Weezer.

    Your so geeky, but so darn cute! (and talented!!)

    Here’s a little video compilation of my last 2 days.

    I think it’s safe to say- all of us at “Live at Squamish” had an immaculate time. I hope I can be there next year!!

  • Hey!

    I woke up and did some voicing for the Government of Canada which was cool, then I jumped in my truck and met this lovely girl for lunch.

    We had a little picnik on Dee’s lunch break. (I <3 this girl!!)

    The “perks” (pun intended) of having a friend work at a huge coffee supplier (Canterbury Coffee)- is that you get hooked up with fresh coffee pronto!

    resiprocrate blend, canterbury

    I also got my eyebrows threaded at Vision 2000 (6667 Fraser St. in Vancouver) $5 and they did an AWESOME job threading my unibrow!

    This was from my Grade 6 school photo. I can really grow the brows!!

    Here’s a sneak peak at them today.

    Another highlight of my day was watching Mike blow air on the pups with an air mattress pump.

    He just ends up biting it and trying to attack it.

    Hee hee… What a brat.

    Now- BED! I have the Live at Squamish action going on! Lots of cool bands to check out! I can’t wait.

    Hope your ready for a kick butt weekend. We’ll be in touch eh???

  • Howdie Beautiful creatures!

    I am sure feeling the love today. Why? I don’t really know why. I just feel loved and love for others… TMI? Maybe.

    First love spot of the day (haha) was at Organic Lives on Quebec and 2nd Ave in Vancouver.

    Organic Lives. Vancouver, quebec and 2nd

    Remember last year when I went to that Healthy Living Class at Organic Lives? Which then inspired me to make the Green Shake video?

    Organic Lives. Vancouver, quebec and 2nd

    I feel like I’ve learnt a lot in a year. Last year, when I looked at all these ingredients I had no idea why or what to use them for. Now, I feel so much more connected to this lifestyle, that these foods now make sense and I understand how beneficial it is to stay away from processed foods! (still have tons to learn)

    Organic Lives. Vancouver, quebec and 2nd

    I stepped out of my comfort box a bit and tried a “Red Fire” elixor. Made with beets, ginger, carrots and apple… Not bad at all..My “reward” after the juice was a couple amazing raw vegan macaroons. SCORE.

    Organic Lives. Vancouver, quebec and 2nd

    On Monday it will be 30 days on my Raw Food “challenge”. It was not a challenge. I loved it. It’s fun, easy, I lost at least 5 pounds and I feel RAWSOME. This raw lifestyle will definitely continue on. (I’m never gonna slap a 100% raw label on myself though. I will always try to make the best decisions, but sometimes life happens and I am a smooth operator)

    I picked up some fancy raw croutons, unsweetened coconut, and some sundried tomoatoes.

    Organic Lives. Vancouver, quebec and 2nd

    After Organic Lives, I went to Grouse Mountain to pick up my VIP pass for the Live at Squamish music festival!!!

    Remember a few days back when I entered the VIP blogger contest? -I had to write about why I should go to the music festival… Well I WON!!

    Now, rather than a horribly photoshopped picture of the HD Whistler Water Flip cam, I OWN it - Thank you Universe.

    flip cam, whistler water

    It says to charge it for 5 hours before using… kaaaaaay.

    Other than that today I voiced projects, cleaned up a bit, took dog out, checked mail, dropped off wine to a friend whose birthday is today, got my bangs trimmed, helped Mike edit new Stormtech video….. that’s about it!!!

    Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings… (getting eyebrows threaded, meeting friend for lunch, going to mall to find concert outfit, NEED to clean more, voice more, wash my make up brushes….) What else? Like Britney says, “Gimme me more, gimme more, gimme mooooore…”

    All my love,

    Amanda…xoxo
