1st Day of Vacation

Although we didn't land in White Rock until last night my vacation officially started Wednesday. I had some vacation days to use, by the end of the year, and decided to take a day off before my trip.

I wish I could say I slept in, or went for a long run, but neither happened. I ran a quick mile and then spent the whole morning doing laundry, packing and cleaning our house for two weekend showings.  Hey, at least it's my last treadmill run for awhile! I picked up London, early, from daycare and spent two hours with him before heading out. 

I joined Melis, her boyfriend Ian, and three others for supper before heading to the Cirque Du Soleil show and meeting up with Tawnya, Danielle, Nicole and June. The show was amazing and the company was pretty awesome too :)


Yesterday morning, London and I said goodbye to Jarod and headed to Calgary.


After a quick stop at the passport office (I'm officially ready for Phoenix now!) we headed to my dad and my Stepmom's house for a quick visit.



We stayed about an hour before going to park our car and catch the shuttle bus to the airport. London was pumped to be on a bus and entertained the other passengers with several rounds of "Wheels In The Bus!"


Our flight was delayed almost an hour but London loved watching the planes!


We landed about 5 o'clock.


We both were really excited to finally get to White Rock and have Nana and Grandpa, my brother and my niece, Cloe, waiting for us!!


We spent the rest of the night catching up and the kids got to open one gift. 


I have been missing my family, so much, lately! I'm happy to be home!!

Have a great weekend!

Home For The Holidays

It's 3 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon and I'm writing this post while waiting for my project at work to finish saving. It's a show I'm producing, and anchoring, to run Christmas Day. It's my last work assignment until December 29th. By the time you read this, I will officially be on holidays!!!

London and I are heading home to White Rock, B.C. for a much needed vacation with my family. My brother is going to be there with my niece, Cloe, and my parents (mom and stepdad.) Jarod and I have split custody with London and alternate major holidays (like Christmas, Easter, his birthday etc) This year, is my Christmas with him; however, we're actually flying back Christmas Day so Jarod can also see his family over the holidays. (<I'm an awesome ex, haha!)

THIS is where I plan on spending the next week...



Eating lots of GELATO:



Running on the BEACH:

My Brother & London Christmas 2012


I don't have any blogs scheduled while I'm away (it's been crazy around here lately) but I will still try and post. I apologize, in advance, if it's not as regular as I would like it to be. 

I will be posting on Instagram if you'd like to keep up to date on my run streak and see what we're up to!

Talk to you from White Rock!!!

Hangover & A Cold--Weekend In Review

I want to start by saying congratulations to the winner of the Lucky Feather Designs infinity scarf.... KIM!



Just a reminder, Melissa is offering 20% off orders placed before December 18th (Thursday!) You can order by commenting, or messaging, on the Lucky Feather Designs Facebook Page!

I had another busy weekend!

Friday, we had our staff Christmas party. We decided to do something fun, and casual, and go bowling! We have a small staff so, with significant others, there was only 20 of us. We bowled for two hours, ordered pizza, and ended up in the lounge playing some fun, random games. I only took one photo and it was before I left the house in a new shirt!


After the lounge, a few of us headed to a local bar, to meet up with other friends, and for more drinks. Melis and Isn joined us and we're nice enough to drive me home at the end of the night. Apparently, we had a photo shoot before getting in the car... We are so pretty hahaha


Saturday morning I felt rough. I had crawled into bed around 1:30 and was awake, with London, just after 6:30. I spent most of the day trying not to throw up and remembering why I don't think very often!

In the afternoon, Jarod and I took London to a movie. He had refused to nap so we weren't sure how it was going to go. It was his first 3D movie and he surprisingly didn't mind the glasses! He lasted about 45 minutes before he passed out. At least J and I got to stay and watch the whole movie this time!




I managed a short run (for the Dec run streak challenge) before calling it an early night!


This morning, London and I both woke up full of cold!! We stayed in our pjs and watched movies (Toy Story 2 & 3) before making some cookies. 


Despite feeling like garbage, I still managed a run while he napped. It's hard to believe this streak is almost half way over!


London and I headed to a hockey game this afternoon and we made it about half way through before he was done. 


I finished the night wrapping Christmas presents, a birthday present for my friend's birthday tomorrow and starting to pack for our trip later this week!! I can't believe we are heading home for the holidays on Thursday!

I can't wait!!

Hope you had a great weekend too!
