girls trip

i've never been on a girls trip before today. i'm heading to one of my favourite places with some of my favourite ladies!

KAUAI here i come!! this was a pic from the last trip we took.
oh we had FUN!

it'll be nice to have no real agenda, just doing what ever we want when we want...

i have a feeling that i'm going to miss my 5 favourite people back home as soon as i get there. they're in very good hands though. my mom is coming up to take care of them and there's no one better!

i'll see you next week ; )

sometimes a snowy day is just what the doctor ordered. i have been stressed and tired lately trying to keep up with everyday things and the one's that i have added to it...

we had a yummy thanksgiving day ham on sunday, it was SO good! i had also bought a turkey for monday but i was distracted trying to make tags and finish some quilts. i accidentally left it in the sink for to long and when i checked it, it was warm... what a waste of a GOOD turkey. we decided just to go get some turkey breasts and cook those instead. (that'l work : )

i sent some quilts into Madisisiloot (the store in the mall), hopefully they sell well. i am making a children's apron for a ladies niece, it turned out so well that i made 1 for my niece and 1 for the shop. isn't that girl adorable? and she's looking SO old...

i need to prepare for my second round of quilt class's tomorrow, the first one was SO fun! it should be interesting with 7 sewing machines going at the same time, how FUN is that!!!

one thing at a time right? slowly but surely they will all get done.

i hope you don't feel to sorry for me though... on saturday i'm going with my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws to KAUAI! i'm excited and i think it comes at the perfect time.

i could really use a break...

ooo I'm in!!! everything looks awesome - and seriously, cheesecake carmel apples??? TO DIE FOR!!! can't wait to try them!

well my birthday is on halloween - which was always kind of fun. I never had trick or treating parties - but definitely had some fun costume parties. My mom always went all out for my parties - so fun! I'm sure my brother appreciated halloween - I don't like chocolate so he always got mine too. Funny, he never traded anything back for it *hmm*

I never really liked Halloween as a child. I liked the idea of candy, and I certainly liked eating it at the end of the night, but I never enjoyed "begging" for the treats.

I never put much thought into my costumes. Where we live in Ontario, we often had to wear a winter coat out anyway so what was the point of putting in so much effort if no one was going to see it? So, I often just wore a cheapo Woolco plastic mask. The problem with that was that half the time, I couldn't see through the eye holes to know where I was going. So what usually happened was that I would wear it on top of my head with the intention to pull it down in time to yell "Trick or Treat" to some poor soul. Most of the time I forgot. So there was my brother, who really went all out for Halloween trying to make sure NO ONE knew who he was, standing beside his little sister with a big, unconcealed toothless grin! Boy did he ever get mad at me!

THANKS everyone! This was Fun... maybe next time it will have to be a quilt...

Prizes will be e-mailed!
