Alright something weird about me.... I have never really been into traditional breakfast meals. Sue I do eat them but if in a rush I'd eat whatever I was feeling like and normally it would be cold. My mom still bugs me about eating cold pork chops when in high-school. Guess who still does some days :-)

Out to lunch!

Sadly I have not had a lot of time lately to blog about some of the great things that have been going on in my life.  Of course there have been a  lot of not so good things, but I think we as a society tend to focus too much on the negative and not so much on the positive!

One of the biggest things right now it that my eldest daughter Miss J has started full day kindergarten!  I have to be honest and say that I am still trying to adjust to this new schedule.  I think the kids  have adjusted a lot better then me. :-)  Miss J will be 4 December 1st and her school was one of the schools  in our province that has started full day kindergarten.   She goes from 830-300 M-F and I am happy to say she LOVES it!  Shes a very friendly kid so I was not too worried about her liking it or not, I was more worried about the full day.

First off I give my children naps, my girls are 21 months apart and I found this was such a important part of the day because when they were smaller this was the only time mommy got to rest and do some other things around the house if needed.  Of course us mommy's know there is ALWAYS something that needs to get done in the  So now with Miss J being  in school full days that meant that I had to have my youngest napping and up by 240 the latest so I could get her sister.  This is not always so easy as if we are out running errands I have to always make sure we are home in enough time to do lunch and  allow her enough time to sleep...and me to get supper started.

The second part about me getting worried falls back onto me..yet again.  I am not sure if you are seeing the trend here, but it seems like I am the biggest problem :-)  With my eldest going to school full days and I work evenings outside of the home I do not get to see her for as much as I would love to in a day.  Yes, if I had a choice I would keep them this age forever and we would not age.  Heck, I wouldn't mind myself going back a few years in age :-)

I do have to say the one thing that I am loving so much about this is that I am able to spend a lot more one on one time with my youngest.  Miss K just turned two yesterday and with her sister being in school a few weeks now I have just figured out my youngest LOVES to shop.  She is always asking if we go out if we are going to go shopping and she truly does not care what store we go to.  Before shopping trips were not always so much fun as trying to entertain two kids in a store is not as much fun as most seem to think.  I honestly do not know the last time I went to a store and bought shoes for myself prior to my eldest being in school!  Guess what I can't say that anymore.  In one morning I managed to go to 3 stores with my youngest and that same morning find shoes for a wedding that I am in next month.   I can not say in words how excited I was (not to mention that I found shoes for $13.00).

Well that is just one of the great things that has been going on in my world lately and I can not wait until I have some time to share what else :-)

I have some pictures I'll share from her first day of school....I just have to find the camera :-)

New Wednesday Blog Hop

I was notified about this new blog hop and i thought it looked like fun so I signed up and think you should join in too :-)


Hmm now I have to think about something weird that I do....I think the first thing my husband would say is he thinks i'm a bit "out to lunch" sometimes. He can tell by looking at me that I am having an internal conversation with myself. Nothing is being said but by my facial expressions you can tell I not sitting there thinking

Thankfully only my husband has told me this soo I'm hoping I don't do it all the time...I hope... :-)

Haha, but I really do know when I am doing this its usually when i am anticipating something thats going to happen and i'm playing out the scenario in my head... I just forget that maybe others can tell lol

Review:The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

I had asked a bunch of family and friends on my facebook if they had any suggestions about books to read.  I received many great suggestions, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, was one of them.  I have to be honest and say that this would not have been a book that normally I would  pick up and  read.  I would  have looked at the style and the era it was written in and probably looked over it.   I am so thankful that my friends mother suggested it to me or I would have missed out on this fabulous story.

The book takes place in 1946 just after the second world war.  Juliet Ashton is a writer had been looking for a topic to start writing her second novel.  Juliet receives a letter from a man from Guernsey who has lived through German occupation of his homeland and found Juliet's name in a Charles Lamb book.  The two of them begin a correspond and with this Juliet learns about  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  This society was born out of a reasoning as to why they had been out past curfew when caught by the Germans and was a spur of the moment alibi to save them from great punishment. 

Juliet becomes so interested in the people of Guernsey that she starts corresponding to many of the individuals that were part of the book society and begins to find out through them about one another and what life was like for them during the war.  Juliet falls in love with their story and decided that she is going to base her new novel about them, but also decided she needs to meet all of them.  So she ends up setting sale for Guernsey and her life changes forever once she gets there.

This story is told in a very unique way as though someone had found the letters and placed them all together to write the novel.  This novel makes you feel as you are reading lost letters of someone that could  have been a relative, but you get to know all the characters as though they are truly friends of yours.

I would definitely recommend this novel to everyone and I guarantee it can fit into your life style.  You can read one letter a day or get immersed in the story like I did and finish it way too quickly!  The story and the characters will seem so real to you, that like me, you may find it hard to believe that it is in fact a fictional story.

Happy Reading Everyone  and be sure to stop by after you have read it and let me know what you thought :-)

My Lip Stuff -Review and Giveaway

I am the first to admit that I am young at heart.  Yes I have grey hair and responsibilities, but one thing that I have always loved, no matter how old I am getting, is yummy smelling lip balms!  Usually I have a lip balm or two everywhere that I go and  they are brightly coloured (not by choice).  You can imagine what a fight it is between my 2, 4 year old girls and myself once I pull out those bright tubes.  There is definitely nothing discrete about them in the least and although I love their smell whenever I put them on they always felt so thick and heavy on my lips.

One day I was online and came across My Lip Stuff and they carry skin, earth and animal friendly products.  Oh did I mention they carry over 500 kinds of lip balms!  YES I SAID 500!!!  I contacted the company and was thrilled when I was able to try out three of their lip balms.  I received Rainbow Sherbet, Kitty Litter Cake and Blueberry Muffin to try out.  First off each and every single one of them smelled delicious and better yet when you put them on they give your lips a soft and smooth feeling.  It was totally impossible to pick a favorite I loved each and every one of them!

Another great thing about this company is that they can design lip balms for you.  No matter if you are wanting something different for a wedding shower, birthday party, charity or event.  You name it they can work with you to design the label.  I definitely will be looking into this for the next function I have as who does not love a great lip balm!
