Hey there everybody!  I know, I know, it’s been FOREVER, right?  Well, I have a reason for my very unexpected hiatus… Are you ready for it?… I’m PREGNANT!  What?  I know!  It came as quite a shock to me and hubby as well.  But, I suppose it is time for us to start a family that consists of more than just the two of us and our furry friends.  We have been married almost 4 years, so sure!  It’s time.  Even though it was a surprise, we are definitely happy about it and cannot wait to start this new chapter of our […]

Devil and the Deep Release Day Party
30 September, 2015 / 1 Comment

Today I bring you the Devil and the Deep release day party! About the Book Devil and the Deep (Ceruleans #4) by Megan Tayte STORM CLOUDS ARE GATHERING, AND THEY WILL RAIN BLOOD.  Scarlett is living her happy-ever-after, back in the real world. Only the ‘happy’ part is proving problematic. For starters, there’s the isolation. Being a Cerulean among humans is fraught with risk, so her time with people can only be fleeting. Which means being with Luke but not being with Luke. Then there’s her Cerulean light, her power over life and death. Less awesome talent, as it turns out, and […]

I am a huge fan of this recipe!  It’s definitely one of my favourites and it always get repeated in our meal plan. Why I love it I love these types of recipes that are meals in themselves.  No need to plan a side with this one.  And if you cook your rice in a second slow cooker like I do, there are no annoying extras required.  Just pop it in the slow cooker and it’s ready whenever you plan it for!  No extras required at the end of the day (except adding the cheese, of course, but that’s easy).  Ahh convenience!

Chances are, though, he won’t have […]

My Nails This Week: French Tip with Pink and Black Twist

This design was inspired by a local nail artist.  I used to go get gel nails done and my esthetician did a design similar to this.  It’s not identical, as (1) I can’t remember exactly what the design looked like, it was so long ago, and (2) I’m not a professional!  But, I think it turned out pretty cool-looking in any event.
