1. What is your ideal way to relax? I have a few different ways; either at home, on the computer, reading, or watching tv/movies, OR at a coffee shop! 2. Where is your favorite place to be? The Farm (where I grew up). 3. Who do you consider your biggest role model? My Mom :) 4. What does your life look like in 3 years? Hopefully we will have moved out of our current place and into something bigger. 5. If you could go back and change one decision, what would it be? There are a few...one is that I wish    I had gone to school much earlier than I did (well, I did get my MOA when I was 20, but I mean going back to school to get a new career earlier than I did (My current MOA diploma wasn't working for me, as it had been too long since I had trained..although I had worked in that …

Today's questions are all about 3s! 1. What are the top 3 things you can't go a day without doing?
Besides the obvious, like breathing, I can't live without checking any Social Media, talking to my hubby, some form of relaxation. 2. What are 3 things that scare you the most? Losing any of my close family members, chickens, going blind. 3. What are 3 places you want to see before you kick the bucket?

1. How much time do you spend on Social Media a day?...be honest  Completely depends on the day. If I am working and/or have errands, then not a lot...but if I have a day where I am doing nothing, then way too much. I mostly spend it on Facebook, but I also enjoy Twitter, IG, and of course, blogging, So, honestly, it could be up to 8 hours a day (on and off, of course). 
2. How long were you reading blogs before you started a blog? Not sure, probably a few years? 
3. What is your favorite kind of cupcake? Not a bit cupcake (or regular cake) fan, but I do love chocolate, or anything with some kind of custard or berry filling in the middle. Oh, and lots of icing.
4. Do you eat fast food? If so whats your favorite? Yes, too much, sadly. I love McDonald's and Wendy's, but I also like Subway. 5. What is the most random thing someone would find in your purse? I have a lot of weird things in my purse (I gotta clean it), but I thin…

Five On Friday & SUYL: Reading Lists

Welcome to another edition of Five on Friday!! I am linking up with the girls as usual to tell you my fav and best things of the week!


1.Our new Pantry

Hubs and I went out last Saturday to grab a pantry. We have such a small kitchen, and shelving is at a premium. We also like to buy in bulk (esp nuts and candy), so I also went to the dollar store to grab some containers. I already am loving the results.
Here are a few pictures of what I have been doing this week...




2, My new phone. I actually got this the end of February. I LOVE it!!! I love that I an add applications. I AM LOVING my apps!!!
The apps that I have are..Starbucks, Twitter, FB, My Fitness Pal (I LOVE it!!), TWN, Canadian Diabetes GPS app, Gas Buddy, Pinterest (does anyone even use that anymore??), IG, CTV GO app, WebMD, YouVersion Bible App, CBC Olympic App, Mahjong, People Magazine App, and BCAA (like AAA) App. I love them all. I may do a post just on my favourite apps alone :)

A Random Post

I thought I had better do a blog post other than a link up one, and I actually had a few things to write about, and I want to write :)

We are doing pretty well. Since I have been working (more on that in a bit), things have been a bit better. Anker is also getting EI, and we are hoping to get him on disability soon. Anker hasn't been feeling all that well, but he does have his good days. Between his hip, back, his IBS, he is usually not feeling well about every other day. We do manage to get out a couple of times a week to run errands, etc. On Tuesday, we went out to get a new modem, to renew our insurance, and grabbed some groceries. I know, exciting, right? I do try to take him out for coffee, Starbucks, etc, but he usually responds with "but I just had coffee at home". LOL.

Work is going well. I worked (or in relation to work) every day last week, and I was so tired by the weekend. It was a great week, though. I am loving (for the most part) my job! It is such a grea…

Happy Friday, Friends!!

I didn't link up last week, b/c well, I think I forgot, then I didn't feel like it, then the week just got away on me. I hope you all had a good week! Mine was good, but BUSY!!!  I am ready for the weekend! That being said, it is either feast for famine around here...I am either working LOTS, or not working at all. I worked lots the last 8 days, then I have only 3 more shifts (after today's shift) this month. I hope I get more.

So, here we go for this wks FoF

1. I am a Union Member for the first time EVER! I even have a card to prove it. I feel so proud and grown up! Even my little sister was in a union before me. I had to ask her some questions.

2. Starbucks' new Maple Macchiato. Oh.My.Goodness. This is amazing. I loooove maple! I am also enjoying the Macchiato's in general, b/c they aren't that sweet. I walked into the store yesterday, and I when I saw this on their board, I HAD to get it.
