Hockey = Home

It's that time of year again! The time of year when there is so much good hockey that you can't possibly see every game. I've always enjoyed sitting and watching hockey with my family, even my mom was into watching, and occasionally Nate was up to pretending he cared.

I definitely enjoy watching the hockey games. They are seriously action filled and exciting games - I get so into them! But mostly, there's something about being at home watching the game that brings me back to growing up and watching it with my family. Watching my brothers yell and the screen and not knowing why. Lying down on the floor with a bowl of chips (CBC hockey night was also chip night!). Listening to my dad and brothers debate the best teams and players. Having all my family in the same room. There's not much that can beat a feeling like that. Even though I'm watching the games alone here, I still feel the same comfort. I will always love watching hockey games!

For those who care... my stanley cup pick is the Canucks!!!! Go Van Go!!!

Three Years Old!!!

So, when I moved out to GP all I knew was that I had a mysterious "second cousin" relative. She's actually my mom's younger cousin, but she's closer to my age. Anyhoo... we had never met before I moved here, yet she and her family were amazing at welcoming me to the city and helping me feel like I wasn't so far from home. She has a 3-year old, that I will refer to as Spiderman, and he is SOOO cute! I friggin' LOVE him! They invited me to come to his 3-year-old birthday party and it was great fun. Here are some pics of the big guy!

Spiderman is all grown-up :) Wearing such grown-up clothes too!

Blowing out the candle! He was very excited about this part!

The amazing Shrek cake! Seriously, isn't it awesome??

All his presents... this is just moments before the chaos began...

He knows that his picture is being taken, lol. Isn't he adorable!

I can't wait til my next sleepover with this kids. He plays and listens so well. Plus, I think he loves me as much as I love him, haha. And he's soooo cute!!!

Thanks for letting me be a part of your family GPers!

Hey Peeps,

I'm doing a 30 Hour Famine to Raise money for World Vision. I'm trying to lead by example and therefore collecting donations myself. You can click here to donate!

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

SO I have this friend, whom shall remain nameless, who recently told me that she thought shoes never went out of style. I literally laughed for a full minute. I LOVE her for being so unmaterialistic (not a real word) that she thinks its true.

Then I got thinking about new shoes I have for the upcoming spring and summer season. I picked my current 5 favourites (tough decision). In no particular order....

Pretty sandals that I haven't worn yet. These ones fit the trend that's out right now. Who doesn't love the gladiator sandal thing that's going on?!
I love these wedges (and another pair I have) so comfortable, and yet so pretty. It makes me feel like 90% more feminine if I have any height on my shoes.
Yep, I gave in to the converse hype. They're super fun to wear with skinny jeans too!
Comfiest shoes ever. I bought them last year and I wear them with everything. They are sooo practical. Oh, and pretty!
These are just practical. They have come in VERY handy so far on my dog walks. Plus, aren't they fun and pretty?!

I kind of like this thought train... maybe I'll do my top 5 accessories next!
