Etsy Update

Hello Friends. :)
Had a week off, some relaxing vacation time, now back in the swing of things. Due to reasons of my immigration status, I'm going to have to further delay the opening of the Etsy shop. Looking at the positives, it's gives me more time to get everything together, and to be more thorough with things. There's still lots to do! I'm hoping to open shop sometime in the fall or beginning of winter-which will be perfect timing for the winter collection!
Oh. Notice my lovely lavender plant displayed in the photo? :) I can't wait for it to bloom, giving off that heavenly aroma.

A Weekend of Adventures

It feels like summer is already here! The hubby and I spent the weekend with some great company at a friend's cottage. It was a lot of fun. Following the weekend, we were supposed to go camping, but that fell through. We showed up at the camp site, got everything set up, began roasting hot dogs over the this point the sky became ominous, and all the frogs and crickets became silent. A great gust of wind pushed through, blowing the fire towards the hammock! Thank God for the emergency pot of water, that we threw to put out the fire. Then the torrential down pour began-we quickly picked up some of our things and took cover in the car. Sitting in the car eating our dinner(at least the hot dogs were finished cooking), we made the decision it would be best to head back home, as the storm was going to continue into the night and be crummy weather the remainder of our stay. So, we braved the rain, got out of the car, took down the tent, re-packed everything as quickly as we could, and hit the road. We had a 9 hour drive ahead of us. Our adventure wasn't over, instead it got a little more interesting. Driving all night after we had been driving all afternoon??? I was pretty confident about staying up all night driving, as I had worked the grave yard shift for a few years. Well. To my surprise, at about 3am, I became completely incapable of driving. Between being car sick, and my body wanting sleep so badly, my eyes weren't able to focus on anything on the road. It didn't help, that at that hour, the only vehicles on the road besides us were Mack trucks. We talked to each other for hours, keeping each other awake. The hubby pulled through, and got us home safely! It's never felt so good to walk through that front door of our home. Finally, time to slip into the bed that had been calling my name since 1:00am. 
It is a little bit of a bummer that we didn't get to go camping, as we were so looking forward to it, especially since we hadn't gotten to go camping the year before, but we made the best out of it. It for sure was an unforgettable adventure making memories. :)

Happiest Birthday Little Sister!


I know, I know, I'm a day early. :P Tomorrow is my sister's birthday! She's going to be...well...I won't reveal that. Gosh we are getting old. I remember as a child, how excited I was when my sister came into the world. And then came the years of being the older, bossy sister. We had so much fun growing up! It was impossible for my sister and I to get bored-we always got creative with playing. From video store, to framing store, haha, it seemed we always picked some sort of 'job' role to imitate and called that playing. Oh, and can't forget the old, famous, turning our beds into space ships, and pretending our bedroom floor was lava-jumping from pillow to pillow(rock to rock), making sure not to fall in. Ah, the good ol' days.
Melissa, my beauty, I am so blessed to have you for a sister. You mean the world to me. Hope your birthday is full of awesomeness! I love you!

Getting Pumped

Exciting weekend coming up! We are going to a friend's cottage for the weekend, and then going camping for a few days. Sooo excited. There's lots to do in the meantime. Cleaning, packing, shopping, and  working feverishly to get the last of the winter knits knitted up. Of course, I'll be bringing my knitting with me...sitting by the campfire without some way. Although, I'll have to be choosy with what I knit by the fire...can't have the 'jellybean wOolies' getting saturated with campfire smoke. :P 

Happy Tuesday everyone!

"I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always..."

Happy Mother's Day! To my Mum, who has showed me un-ending, unconditional love. 

Who has always been there to comfort me, to make me laugh, to show me what is most important in life. 

Who has showed me to let my hair down once in awhile, and not always take life so seriously. 
Who has helped shape me into the person I am today. Thank you Mom.

And I Quote, one of my favorite books from childhood: "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living, my mommy you'll be." 

I love you Mum!

Love your Little Whoopa.
