  • Hello!

    I am at home now and back to my regular daily blogging schedule!

    My last few days in Saskatoon were awesome. My mom moved into a new town house with a pool which we were all loving. Party at moms!

    My nephew Jasper is a little fish and at 7 months old can already climb stairs! (He is in a baby crawl contest this Saturday! Jasper’s first race- Go little buddy!)

    We went for some walks along the river (here is Jasper and my moms boyfriend Richard)

    My mom and her pride and joy-(her grandson!)

    On Monday I walked into a surprise BRIDAL SHOWER put on by my amazing sister in law Nicole, my mom and some of our family friends.

    I want to tell you all about it- but I will wait until I have had more sleep and can really get into it. I got to wear a BRIDE hat! WOO HOO.

    We visited and played games. A few babies around that kept us fully entertained as well;)

    Meet Jack. My best buddy Janna’s son. He is almost 1 year old! Yesterday Janna had a meeting so Jack and I hit the streets.

    I think I’m going to make a great mom, but I gotta get used to pushing around the stroller. Going in and out of stores I must of looked ridiculous. I would push him to the door, pry it open with my foot, then run to the inside of the store and drag him in by the front. I haven’t found a graceful way of maneuvering the stroller..in time I’m sure.

    Then we took Jack for his first hair cut! He LOVED it!!! It was soo cute  to watch. Janna got to save the clips of hair for her scrapbook.

    Late Tuesday afternoon, Mike and I said our goodbyes and took off to Vancouver. .Bye bye prairies…

    Pit stop- Painter needs a pee break!

    It was beautiful to watch the prairie sun set before our eyes.

    We drove as far as we could, then we slept in our truck at a rest stop and woke up after about 5 hours of restless sleeping. WOke up, got some coffee and weaved our way through beautiful Jasper.

    Saw a bunch of elk on the side of the road!

    Then, we drove ALL day. Got to Vancouver at about 5pm. Brought all the gear from the truck up to the apartment, I made a salad , wrote this blog and now I am off to bed. I have a HUGE voiceover day to get caught up with… so my voice needs it’s beauty sleep.

    Hope all is well with you! Talk tomorrow!!!!

  • Hello!!! Welcome to January 18th!

    Do you ever jump the gun on certain things? I’ve done it twice today. Both things regarding my work. I didn’t get answers right away so I proceeded to email back, asking questions that if I would have waited 2 minutes, I would have the answer to.

    So potentially I have annoyed 2 important people by my impatience. False Start!

    Oh well! Hopefully my charm will smooth over my impatient requests……;)  As Axel would say, ” All we need is just a little patience.”

    Onto my staring problem……..

    His name…Jasper Dale Sellers. His game…capturing my heart. (ohhh sooo sappy I know!)

    I cannot stop thinking about him though.  It’s my brothers son, born yesterday. My little brother is now a dad. I am so proud of him. Jasper has amazing parents.

    Beautiful little family.

    Bundle of JOY…

    Ok- I know babies aren’t some new invention, so I won’t go on and on and on and on and on and on…..(just know how much I love him:)

    I’ve been busy working on updating my voice demo’s. It’s been going good. Had a few jobs today as well. One phone system, and 2 videos. While we were working, Mike says, “I’m so hungry, I can’t even see…” Yikes! Ok! I ran to the kitchen to make us some food. I made him a big omelette and I heated up some leftover brown rice and veggies.

    (I don’t normally have a plant right by my stove, but the pot busted yesterday so we put the plant in a bag and now we need to buy another pot)

    I added a couple falafel’s that we bought at Costco. I know they have preservatives and I should make my own, but it’s a nice quick protein boost.

    veggie patch falafel balls

    I dumped on some salsa and good to go.

    I also made a quick batch of my homemade Lara Bars. I didn’t even cut them up, Just one big pie we can cut off when we want some.

    I still have some work to do so I better get going! Hope you are having a wonderful day! I have a tri update coming soon, so come on back! I run with the club tonight and we have a speaker coming to talk to us about mental toughness! ohhh I like it:)

    Here is me swimming my laps this am. (I have to tell you later about my math mess up! I failed Grade 12 math and it is coming to haunt me!! haha)

    Keep on ROCKIN IN THE FREE WORLD!!!!!!
