Previous, Photos, Picture

A picture tells a thousand words they say. So here is a little collage of some of the pictures from this past year that were randomly selected by facebook. Obviously there were a lot more to choose from but I really liked this selection! :) More to come!

Canucks, Cookies, Christmas

Had a great day today. Baked Christmas sugar cookies with a friend and it was so great to decorate them all beautifully!! And finished assembling most of my furniture. sigh. haha.. there's a few stories there for sure. Then Des and I went to the Canucks game which was fantastically fun. Next time we're making a sign to bring. :) Yeah for cheering loud and dancing!! I'm excited for the weekend too.. Have some out of town guests coming out so that will be great to see them! And below is a picture of my favorite little man. :) Have a good day!

Sick, Socks, Silly

I have much to post about but dont' feel like posting about any of it! hehehe.. But I'm wearing really cool socks right now so that's got to count for something. I was taking pictures of myself on photobooth today and thought i'd post one of myself so you wouldn't think i put my hair up in braided buns all the time and cake on the makeup.. hehehe..

Here are some more pictures from Aladdin. I think I'm in them somewhere...

My house is returning to it's less chaotic state and that is nice and feels nice. Dishwasher is getting installed Friday so I will have the use of both sinks and my dishwasher again! YAY! And I have a bunch of new furniture that was brutal to assemble but I really like it and it looks great!! :)

Only 14 days until my birthday!! Turning a quarter of a century and I'm really excited for being 25.. I feel like it's going to be an awesome year with some new seasons and newness of perspective and where I'm at in life as well (hopefully not insanely busy). So I'm excited for all that is coming and also to go to South America and Antarctica in less than a month!! EEEE!! Great way to start the year and my year of being 25!! :)

Okay now I"m off to watch some Gilmore Girls with Kristen! Have a great day all!!

I've been reading a couple great books lately so I will share some thoughts on them soon!! Once my brain starts working again! The day my musical ended my body decided it had held out long enough and completely shut down!! I'll be up to snuff soon enough, I just have to keep denying the fact that i'm sick.. hehe

Finished, Finale, Fun

Today was our final performance of Aladdin!! Kind of sad to be done, because it was a lot of fun, but it will be nice to have free evenings again! Who knows if I will know what to do with myself now that I'm done! On the final performance, people play pranks and stuff one each other (as long as it doesn't interfere with the show it's fine). So, there were some points during it that were quite funny (the audience wouldn't necessarily get the extra humor, but we definitely did!) During the final number I actually almost burst out laughing mid song as I saw the little Olympic mascots zipline across the stage. :)

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and thanks to those who came out to see it! Definitely felt supported by family and friends and it was always extra fun knowing I had people I knew in the audience. My hair and makeup was my best attempt at looking "Asian" since it was set in China. The people we worked with were fantastic and I have really enjoyed some of the new friendships I have built as a result of being in the show. Great people and a lot of fun!!
And in other news, still amidst renovation insanity. haha. I feel like everything is chaos. I started moving a few more things around today, but it still feels nuts. I was getting a new dishwasher installed and last minute, it was realized that the new one wouldn't hook up as easily.. so now i have no dishwasher and the right sink leaks through the dishwasher hose.. so I am stuck to half a sink in which to wash and rinse dishes-fun! Oh well soon it will all be done and it will be fantastic! Pictures coming as soon as I find my camera cord, along with many other pictures!

Have a great day!

Bathroom, Boxes, Baking

Happy December 1st!! Crazy that it's is already December but also very exciting!! I write to you as I am house-trapped. Hehe.. I've had people in and out of the house working on stuff the last couple of days so I've needed to be home. The only problem is that most of the rooms are being worked on, leaving me nowhere to go!! hehe.. So that has been making me feel a little crazy. But since my living room is full of boxes, I have been organizing and throwing out and giving away a lot of stuff!!

Yesterday, a few girls from the youth group I help out with came over to bake cookies. Last month we went into Vancouver to hand out sandwiches to the homeless. So this Friday for their Christmas party, we're handing out sandwiches and cookies, so we figured we'd make some fun shaped sugar cookies to hand out. It was a lot of fun to bake together and our cookies looked pretty great! Except for the minor incident where one slipped off the pan, into the oven and lit on fire, everything went off without a hitch!! :)

In the upstairs of my house, I've had to move stuff around a lot in order for the different flooring to be put in. So last night I saved myself a few trips down the stairs and packed the bathroom full of stuff. When I glanced upstairs it made me laugh because of how full the bathroom is!! :) Soon it will be done and then I will have the arduous task of putting away all my books and everything else. But I will be setting up myself an office space, so I'm excited to finally have somewhere to do my work!! I'm contemplating organizing my books using the Dewey Decimal system but I figure that would take far too much time!! So maybe I'll wait for a rainy day!! Have a great day and there will be pictures of renos coming soon I promise! :)
