Friday again!

This is starting to become a weekly blog. At least I am a little more regular again.

Scrapbooking was great last Saturday. I got 12 pages done. I have been working on my inspiration binder all week. I cut layouts out of magazines that I like and then I don't have to keep the whole magazine. I organized them into categories but it is working out great. I am feeling really inspired to scrapbook, I just wish my room was done. The hole I work in right now is just too cramped. We have been waiting for the drywaller but he still hasn't come over. It is literally a couple of hours work but he is just so busy.

I tried to go to a friend's blog but she has changed it to invitation only. I will have to contact her to see if I can be invited. I know she is going through a rough time right now so hopefully everything is ok.

Spring is starting to arrive in the north! I am just itching to plant something but it still gets down below zero at night so any plants would just die. The lawn is starting to look great though!

Focus on Friday

Ahhhhh..... Friday! You just gotta love it. Worked today at the high school which was fun. I love working in WM's classes.

Tomorrow I am going scrapbooking all day for National Scrapbook Day. I am looking forward to it. I am starting to make some new friends which is great. I am going to try to get 10 layouts done tomorrow. I might not get the titles done because I am not dragging all of my die cutters with me. I might take my Quickutz with me with a few fonts so that I can get some done.

Well, the class is getting a bit disruptive so I best be off.

This is my new Lululemon pink gym bag. I am going to use it for work or maybe to lug around scrapbooking stuff. Either way I LOVE IT!

Spring Break Hilights!

Science World - especially the History of Chocolate exhibit.
Robson Street - SHOPPING and Lululemon! (I love my new pink gym bag!)

Visiting our friends in Hope, not to mention dinner at Kimchi!

AHHHHHH, spring!

Seeing Bridge to Terabithia with Arden and her Grandma.

Seeing Cats in Nanaimo. It was really well done and Arden and Isabelle were mesmerized. Arden is already memorizing the songs!

Back from Spring Break

Just back from our two week spring break. It was so nice to have the break and head down to the coast. I felt the need to see things growing! I saw tulips and daffodils as well as cherry blossoms. Even if my allergies were driving me crazy, it really was beautiful.

Arden and I did lots of shopping. She has grown so much that she was in desperate need of clothes. The Children's Place is my favourite place to shop for Arden's clothes. They have trendy stuff that is not outrageously priced and is of good quality. What more could a mom ask for?!

On the second week of our break we got to spend 3 nights and 4 days in Vancouver. Aaron was at a Principals' conference so we got to stay at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. It is right next to the art gallery. Arden called it a castle! These few days truly proved that you get what you pay for. The service was amazing! It was nice to be in the city for a few days. We ate good food and shopped on Robson. We went to Science World and I took Arden to her favourite place, Chinatown.

After the two weeks away it was good to come home to our own beds. All of the snow is gone here now. (there is still some in the mountains and in the "bush") Today is an absolutely glorious, sunny day! I love the weather here. Anything is better than all the rain down south!
