To be Thankful!

As I am Canadian I had my thanksgiving last month but I am still thinking of all of my American friends and how they were all celebrating yesterday.
I have many things to be thankful for starting with my family. I am very thankful for the family I have, for the family I have married into and for the family I have started. My parents have raised me well and have taught me the way of life and to them I am thankful for the my life I have. To my mother in law, she has welcomed me with open arms like a daughter of her own and has treated me the very best from the start. And to my husband, He is my best friend, my partner and the love of my life. He has been amazing to me since the day we met. We have traveled many places together and plan on going to many more. We all so started a family together and I could not be more thankful for that. We have borough into the world two amazing boys that I love to watch grow and learn each day. They are my life!
It is true what they say, being a momma is the best job in life and to that I am thankful!
I hope all of you had a wonderful thanksgiving weather it was yesterday or last month!

Lest We Forget

Today is remembrance day. A day to remember great selfless people.
All I would like to say today is to please remember the men and women who have fought and our still fighting for our freedom.
On this 11 month, of the 11th day, on the 11th hour have a moment of silence for those who have lost their lives for us to live in the great country we call home.
To all of you I say thank you!

Weekend

The weekends over and I’m back to my Monday to Friday work day routine.
I do have to say I had a wonderful weekend with my friends and family.Β 
This past week was one of my good friends birthday. Saturday her and her husband had a bunch of us over for a night in of good conversation and great home made pizza.Β 
Yesterday I spent the day at home. Yes, I was doing a lot of of house hold chores of cook and cleaning but in between me trying to keep my house clean i sprnt some time played with my boys. I also did a little cooking and made some fun rice crispy treats for them to eat. I ended my night off with a quite night on the couch, a hot cup of tea , a warm blanket and a movie.
Wish my weekend was longer but now I’m just going to have to look forward to next weekend.
Enjoy!!!!

Wedding day!

I have been a little MIA this past week as I was planning and taking part in my brothers wedding. We spent most of last week finishing up the centerpieces, putting together favors and making sure the wedding was going to go off with a bang and that it did! My brother and his now wife had a amazingly beautiful wedding day. I have very little pictures of the day as my phone was locked up inside the bridal suite for most of the night and by the time I got it, it was time to dance the night away. And yes that is were I spent the rest of the night on the dance floor.
Here are a couple of picture I took before we took off and from the week as we put the deportations together.
I had so much fun planing this wedding and was so happy I could help!!!
Maybe I should take up being a wedding plannner :)!
