Our New Home & Packing

Our new home is going up so quickly. The brick has been completed. The dry wall be be going up next. I'm looking forward to seeing the inside with all the dry wall done. I finally get my very own craft room and it will be upstairs right above the front door entry. The three windows you see on the left above the front door entry is were my craft room will be. That's my sexy hubby and sweet shih tzu in the pic. Right now we are doing alot of packing, cleaning, etc so that we can put our current house up for sale. I'm taking a bit of a break from crafting because I don't have time right now with trying to get the house ready to sell. It was sooo depressing packing up all my crafting goodies :o( There is no trace that a crafter ever lived here :o( Hopefully we can sell our home quickly so that I can start crafting again. I will still blog and post other pix but no crafting pix for a few weeks. I will post more pix of the inside of our new home soon so check back.

Update: I convinced my hubby to give me the larger room for my craft room. The two windows in the middle and three windows on the right will be my craft room, It's nice and big and has it's own full bathroom :o)

Chicken Dinner

I made chicken and veggies for dinner. Snap peas and mushrooms are my fav veggies. I luv boneless & skinless chicken thighs because how ever you cook it the chicken remains juicy even with no skin on it.

I'm 30!!!


I'm 30 today!!! I remember when I was younger I use to think 30 was sooo Now that I'm 30 I sure don't feel that way. I still feel like I'm 17 and most days 12...heehee.

My wonder hubby took Thurs and Fri off work to celebrate my b-day. We have 4 relaxing days together :o) Yesterday we went to the theatre to watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The movie was awesome!!! We also had Thai for dinner...mmmmmmm.

My hubby would not tell me what he had planned for my b-day and he kept me in suspence for weeks and weeks. I kept guessing and trying to get it out of him but he would not tell me. So today he drove me to my b-day surprise and dropped me off at Silver Blue Butterfly Spa, which I highly recommend if you leave near Oakville, Ontario. I was sooo surprised! He booked me a 3hr package called Sweet Excape which included a 50 min Swedish massage, 50 min facial, 45 min pedicure and a spa lunch. I didn't want any of it to end. I felt so relaxed during and after my spa visit. It was my first time getting a pedicure. I've never had a pedicure because I have always been nervous that I would be way too ticklish. I did laugh alot when I got my pedicure but I am now totally hooked. I luv it!! I've always luv'd facials and masssages so it was really, really nice to have it done today. I felt like such a pampered princess :o) Thank you baby for such a wonderful day!! I lub you!!!

My spa lunch was huge. I only ate 1/4 of it. I had shrimp, mushroom, tomato, garlic, basil penne pasta and cheesy garlic bread. It was oh sooo yummy and filling.

For dinner we had one of our fav meals, sushi. It was sooooooooooo good! For dessert we had chocolate covered fruit that my sweet girl friend, Mui, in Vancouver had delivered to me today. The chocolate covered fruit bouquet was in a pretty vase. The numbers 30 were carved out in pineapple. She always sends me a huge and pretty fruit bouquet for my b-day's and I luv them so much. They are so pretty that I never want to touch or eat them. Thank you Mui!! You always make me feel so special :o)
