  • Hey there!

    We woke up in a cloud, how about you?

    Port moody fog

    I just wrote a poem for you:

    “The Port Moody fog faintly flows through fair pine patches” ha

    This is me, after my 4th day in a row doing Birkram’s Yoga! Here we go again!! (This is my 2nd year in a row doing a 30 day yoga challenge)

    Day 4 of my Bikrams Yoga Challenge

    It’s hard to dress for Hot Yoga, well basically it’s wear as little as you comfortably  feel wearing. Since I choose not to wear the panty looking shorts that some gals sport, I am LOVING these flex yoga shorts from Stormtech. They are the perfect hot yoga shorts.

    I sometime just wear a sports bra on top, or a sports bra and light tank top… I still drip buckets of sweat no matter what I wear though!

    In other headline breaking news, I washed my makeup brushes today. The were a bit muddled from doing makeup for 5 girls yesterday.

    I dab the brush in a bowl of baby shampoo, then wet it a bit and move the brush back and forth on my hand until I feel it is clean. Then rinse it off in water (I just keep a small stream of warm water running)

    Shape them back to the shape they should be in and place them flat to dry, preferably with the tip hanging over the edge.

    Then I moved on to taking these awesomely ripe bananas (when they are spotty is the best time to consume them because all the hard-to-digest starch has turned into an easily absorbable masterpiece for the body)

    I peeled them and put them into the freezer to throw into my green smoothie in the morning.

    Remember THIS green shake? Have YOU made it lately?? xo

    Eww, I dislike that old kitchen…. But the shake is a game changer!

    I need to fill this awesome fruit bowl back up (bowl was a gift from my mom- good score hey?). Going to get groceries after yoga in the morning:)

    Here’s my little fruit cake.

    Hope you guys had a great Sunday. I think this week is going to be outstanding! Keep putting the positive energy and it will keep on coming back!

  • Hello fellow earthlings!

    We were lucky enough to bring little Painter and my goodness he LOVED it up there. He loves exploring as much as we do;)

    I think we are going to have a couple awesome videos once we’re done editing these up.

    Biggest thank you to Stormtech..

    …and Shawn and Jeff at Blackcomb Snowmobiles. What a great couple of days! Back to reality…

    I’m going to let myself sleep in tomorrow and see where the day takes me. [BIG TO-DO LIST!]

    We gave puppy a bath as soon as we got in the door, (he was a dusty bucket of mud by the end of it!)

    Thanks for stopping by YOU! xoxo

    Talk sooooooooooooooon

  • Happy Friday!!!
    Usually weekends don’t feel like weekends to me because I usually work them- but it actually kinda feels like a weekend! This is going to be goood!!

    Today Mike and I had a meeting at Stormtech Performance Apparel. I have done a fair amount of work for them in the past and I am eagerly excited to say- we may continue to do some more work! I have been in their catalogue, voiced their phone system and even did some hosting for them.

    Mike and I have been given the challenge to “test drive” the new Stormtech XBR-1. We are going to go hiking, running and exploring while wearing them in windy and rainy climates and document our thoughts. As soon as we got them home we ripped open the jackets out of the plastic bags- fresh with creases and all. I got the XBR-1 in electric blue:

    Mike got the jacket in Black (I have the Black one too;)

    We picked up our jackets at Stormtech Showroom in Burnaby, BC

    Pretty waterfall behind the Reception Area

    Here’s a shot of some of the Stormtech Athletes on the wall. What if I got good enough at triathlons, to be a sponsored athlete? That would be a dream. I have always been obsessed with very athletic people. Maybe because I was always “good” at sports, but never “AMAZING”, I always admired those who had that natural ability. (Like my team mate all through high school- Chelsea Grimson, or my sister in law Nicole, etc)

    Here I am waiting in the reception area. I started reading a National Geographic, but there was some gory pictures of a goat getting worked on by a doctor… Props to you smart people who read NG, but I threw it down and cringed a bit.

    With my new 18 month contract in voiceover work, I will most likely learn a thing or 2! I am voicing/”teaching” 2 subjects! My first module is on plants, and flower and the angiosperm life cycle of plants.

    NEAT-O mosquito!!!

    Well I best be running…. well not running right now…I’m driving to another meeting. 4:45pm is when it starts. Smack dab downtown during rush hour on a Friday. This should be fun….

    Have an AWESOME weekend. I can’t wait until we meet again (how does tomorrow sound??)





  • YAY, Friday is here! What are you up to this weekend?

    Yesterday afternoon we went to Port Moody to look at places. We did not find “the one” and then I started having doubts about moving out of downtown. I am so torn as to what to are the pro’s and cons:

    Living downtown

    -close to EVERYTHING

    -can walk pretty much anywhere

    -often downtown for friends/music/work

    -feels like home to me

    Living in Port Moody

    -change is good, but we’d have to commute more

    -live right in the mountains with lakes and trails galore (it’s like a lil whistler village-definitely small town feel)

    -way bigger living space (including things like gorgeous kitchen- dishwasher:) amazing amenities in the building

    -I work from home so the space will be a big bonus

    What do you think????

    Mike says try not to think about until after the weekend. okay okay, lol
    Stormtech’s Showroom Event was a blast last night. They know how to throw a party!

    I took pictures, but they are not on this computer, so all I can show you is this:

    I am on all the tags for this fleece jacket! Woo hoo!

    We are on our was out to Hornby Island today. Our friends Lindy and Trong are getting married. I am doing the makeup for the bridal party and Mike is filming the wedding video!

    Here is me on the ferry at 6am!!!  zzzzzz

    HOWEVER, I can’t complain about being tired. My BFF Janna just had a baby yesterday and she keeps texting me at crazy hours saying how tired she is! She texted me at 3am last night and told me both her husband and baby were passed out, both snoring together! CUTE! Her baby is soo frikin adorable, I have to admit- looking at pictures of him makes me want one! (NOT for a while tho…..)

    She emailed me this pic late last night of mommy and baby Jack  :

    He is so cute….look at all that hair!

    I did not do my p90x this morning! I will make up for the videos I miss next week. That’s how I gotta roll. I committed to doing this program and ANY one that I miss will be made up for….

    Have a fantastic weekend and stay outta trouble!!!
