My life is complete ❤

only a couple more weeks until my Death Star cookie jar arrives.

In the mean time, I’m preoccupying myself with my wonderful husband and puppy.

it doesn’t get any better than this

My apologies! I haven’t updated in a few months…but I have reason!

Our house is looking more and more awesome by the day.  We’ve been working really hard on the kitchen & dining room…we wanted it painted and finished before Thanksgiving! We’re all done, minus one wall that still needs wallpapering. 



The bedroom still lingers on being painted. I had a whole plan for it, but now I’m not sure….so I’m giving myself time to think more about it.  For now I’m just buying Ikea things for it and trying to make it look as cute as possible.

The basement is starting to come along nicely…as nice as the rest of our house becomes ourr basement still remains our dirty bar/rec room.  We spend most of our time down here considering it’s where the tv/xbox/bar resides….but I have recently become quite fond of my quiet living room and jazz radio.


And speaking of peace and quiet, our street itself is absolutely amazing.  Everything around here is beautiful, and you should see the fall colours! (coming soon!)  Even the view to our front yard from my jazz-filled living room is breathtaking.

I have lots more to update on, but I’ll leave that for another day.
By the looks of it, I’m going to have alot of spare time on my hands…that is, if I’m not totally over run by my job.

The past couple of months have been pretty exciting! Nothing out of the ordinary really (other than meeting Kevin Smith of course!), but I’ve been enjoying myself and trying to relax as much as possible before “the big day”.  Although, that’s seemingly hard to do while working 12 hour shifts and packing for a big move.

Every weekend (usually sundays) Chris and I try to get out and spend the whole day outside.  We usually start with a little breakfast at Benny’s on Lakeshore Rd., and make our way down to the lake for a long 4-5 hour walk-a-thon along the beach strip and down to the Hamilton lift bridge.

She gets to bird watch!!

On the last weekend of May, Burlington Animal Aid hosted the Pooch Promenade at Spencer Smith Park.  It was such a gorgeous day, and Leia made SO many new friends.  They even had The Superdogs there doing tricks and stuff. Absolutely adorable! They even taught everyone there how WE could help train our doggies to do cool stuff!

I have also continued work on my Frankenstein leg sleeve tattoo.  With Frankenstein and his lovely Bride already residing on my shin, I have now had Greg (of True Grit Tattoos in Burlington) add the Dracula/Frankenstein Caslte to my calf.  We’ve got the outline and the dark shading done, and just have to fill ‘er in….which will come when I have more money. haha.  Here’s a crummy photo….

We’ve also had our Stag n’ Doe (which went superbly well!), but I’ll save that update and photo madness for another day!
