Lazy Weekend

This weekend has been great! The weather has been super HOT which I love. I got some sun and am now a little red in the arms and chest, oops. I bought hubs some remote control airplanes as a belated birthday gift and he's been playing with them ever since. After the fun in the sun, we went out for chinese for dinner, yum yum! I was so stuffed but it was so worth it!

Today I got to sleep in, missed church, another oops. I've got some light cleaning to do and then I will be able to relax and enjoy the rest of my weekend. Here's a picture of some beautiful flowers I bought from the Farmer's Market yesterday. I love them so much, and such a steal at only $2.50 for the bunch!

Have a good rest of the weekend!

Shredding Away

I started the 30 Day Shred again but this time I have stuck with it. I am currently on day 5 today and have not taken a day off yet. I am so proud of myself, I usually start things and then don't finish them. So far I have noticed a big difference in my arms and hips, both look to be smaller and clothes in that area are fitting looser. I am really happy with the results I have gotten in the last 4 days that it is my motivation to not give up and stick with it til the end!

In related news, I am hoping that this will help me get pregnant. I know I shouldn't get my hopes up but I figure that at least if I get healthier, it will be alot easier to conceive. I have also changed my eating habits and am drinking around 3-4L of water a day. I have cut out all other drinks and boy have I noticed a difference in my skin's texture. I am sure this will be something I can continue forever.

To start this off, these are solely my opinions and no one else's.

I give the Bruno movie two thumbs down. It was so offensive there were parts were I felt physically upset by it all. This movie was 100 times worse then the Borat one. Even hubs couldn't believe some of the things being said and viewed. This movie should be rated R. I saw kids in the audience and could not believe their parents would allow them to see such a thing. I hated it!

After that horrible experience, I went and stopped by the Shopper's near our house to pick up some concealer as I was running low. After chatting up the cosmetics lady, she gave me a bunch of samples. One of those said samples was for Shisheido, the Skincare. OMG, I am in love with this stuff. I was already on the lookout for some new skincare routine as the one I am currently following is a huge fail. This stuff though was A-W-E-S-O-M-E! It was super moisturizing without making my face look greasy and very gentle on my sensitive skin. There was absolutely no redness whatsoever after going through the routine. When I woke up this morning, my skin still looked nice and dewy and feels amazingly soft. I am heading back there after hitting up the Farmer's Market this morning to pick up the full size version of this stuff!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Date Night!

Since the hubs is back home, we are going to go out for a nice Friday night date. On the agenda for this date is a little dinner at Red Robin courtesy of the in-laws - thank you! and then a movie. Hubs is dying to go see Bruno and since I don't see anything of interest playing at the local theatre, I gave in. I know this isn't going to be my type of movie, but if it is anything like Borat, I am sure it will at least be funny.

Other than that, yay for being Friday and tomorrow being the weekend! Have a great weekend everyone!

1 more night!

I can't wait! Hubs gets back tomorrow morning at 10. He's been gone for 12 days visiting family back in Ontario. I have missed him so much! The longest we have been apart is 5 days, and this was more than double that. I have to go pick him up from the airport and then head right to work. :( I wish I could take the day off and just spend it with him, not going to happen though.

I have a big surprise for him when I pick him up. I made him this giant 'Welcome Home' card with a box of his favorite chocolates. He's such a romantic, he will love it. I'd show you a picture but hubs has the camera with him. 1 more sleep, squee!!! Also, I will finally get a proper night's sleep after this whole time, I suck at sleeping alone.

Anniversary Numero Deux

In honour of our second anniversary, since Hubs was out of town for it, we will be taking a trip at the end of the summer instead. I have been scouring the interwebs for a good place to mark our 2 years of being happily married and boy did I find it. I present to you, the Cathedral Mountain Lodge.

I am so in love with this place, I cannot wait to go there. It's in the Rockies and has the most amazing views. When hubs and I moved out here to BC we drove through that area and spent one night in Canmore. We decided then that we will have to retire somewhere like that.

So we are booked in for a weekend in September and I could not be happier. I spent our actual anniversary at home alone since hubs was back in Ontario for a family visit so this is a much better way to spend it. Hopefully we will be expecting by then, and then we will have a completely different reason to celebrate!
Welcome to my blog.

I'm Niki, and I am married to my very best friend. There are 2 things that I am certain of; first, that I love my hubs more than anything, and second, we are so ready to start a family. We are currently on our 6th cycle officially trying with a BFP on cycle 2. Unfortunately the BFP turned out to be a chemical pregnancy, but that certainly has not slowed us down on our journey to parenthood. I am so excited to get pregnant and change this family of 2 to 3!
