Can you say YUMMY!!??

So I recently was informed after visiting The Buzz Queen that M&M's have their very own website...http://m-ms.com who would have thought!!! I sure didn't! TOO COOL!!! I have been an M&M addict since I was old enough to eat chocolate!( thanks mom) My mom is a CHOCOLATE ADDICT! Anyways M&M's melt in your mouth not in your hand so they are perfect for kids!

I was thrilled at all the cool things I discovered while browsing the site! Immediately upon entering I found out you can order personalized M&M's .....Perfect for a WEDDING, BIRTHDAY, ANNIVERSARY....etc!! I will definitely be ordering some of these for our "10 yr PARTY/Anniversary/Wedding" next summer!

I also found this recipe for a yummy party snack I just had to share!!! I cant wait to try it!!


M&M Bar MIX

1 21.30-oz. bag M&M'S® Brand Chocolate Candies1 16-oz. jar dry salted peanuts or salted cocktail peanuts1 8.5-oz. bag roasted & salted sunflower kernels1 6-oz. can roasted & salted almonds
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.Fill a favorite antique container—such as a wooden bowl, old spice tin or old canning jar—with the mix. Set the container out. Be sure to make plenty—it could disappear quickly!

my visual DNA







I couldnt resist any longer I had to go check out my Visual DNA!! I saw it on the Buzz Queen's post a while ago and finally decided today to go check it out!! It was a lot fo fun!!


Check out your VISUAL DNA ....See how yours looks!!

BE YOUNG!! HAVE FUN!!

I almost DIED!!!



So from my Wordless Wednesday post last week you learned that my little princess LOVES to play with make-up well the other day she managed to talk her brother into giving her a little make-up Tattoo on her back guess she decided she needed a butterfly!!


The eye shadow they used was this creamy stuff instead of powder, anyways HUGE MESS!!!


Ended up all over my nice white door and her bedroom wall! Thank god for a big strong dad and some good dish soap, scrubbed it right off!! Her on the other hand HOLY SMOKES was it hard to get off her! We have decided from now on if the princess wants a tattoo she needs to ASK and we will ponder a nice rub on one instead!! And as for her brother he is going to stick to art work on paper instead of bodies!!


When she first came out into the living room it took every ounce of self control I have not to die on the floor laughing!! Just the way she came out was way TOO FUNNY!!!
Aren't kids FANTASTIC!!

HURRAY 4 SPRING!!

YES I'm still alive!! No the Jello didn't not turn out to be fatal in fact it was quite FANTASTIC!! Sorry I have been M.I.A. I've been playing some hard core poker this past week and its been PAYING off!! No BIG huge prizes yet but I'm working on it! My "Sugar Daddy" loaned my 5 bucks on my online poker account, I took that 5 dollars played in 4- 1.25 SNG tournaments and ended up being able to pay back my 5.00 loan and still have 17.00 in my account!! SWEET!! I've managed to play for the week and as of tonight my bankroll is 22.00 all in all it's been a GREAT Week for POKER for ME!!!
My children have decided that they would rather play outside than do crafts! Well my daughter anyways and my son is forced against his will most of the time to join her outside because he's older and she can't be out alone!! Sorry "Buddy" (my princess nicknamed him that!)
I tell him when he was 3 I had to do all kinds of things with him I didn't want to but I still did, now its his turn!! lol! There is a 4 year age difference and most of the time they get along GREAT but on occasion the age gap becomes quite apparent!

Today was CHILLY out!! I am less than thrilled by the UN SPRING like weather we have been stricken with this past week!! I made the kids stay in for most of the day Today, as their recent love for the frigid outdoors has left them with mild spring colds!

To fill some time I decided we would try to make a neat craft I found online, using coffee filters and water colour paint !! Who doesn't have coffee filters kicking around the house?! Well I don't because my coffee maker doesn't use them but that's a whole other post=)

Now that it is officially SPRING!! I am anxiously waiting for flowers to start blooming!! That's the best part of spring!! All the new pretty flowers! Since its still a bit early to see them outside I figured we can make our own for inside!!

This craft was by far the EASIEST And FUNNEST craft I have ever done!!! It was PERFECTLY KID FRIENDLY even my lil princess did great with this one!!

The final product turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I took a bouquet over to a girlfriend's house, I loved them some much I had to share!! After all the best part of Crafting is Sharing!!


OK here's how to do it! Well my version anyways! lol

What you need....
White round coffee filters
Water Colour Paint (the more colours the more fun!) It has to be WATER paint! Food colouring and water could work as well.
Markers
Water
Paint Brush
Sparkles (add to paint)
Pipe Cleaner/Popsicle stick, straw
Tape (green or clear tape would be best

TIME TO GET 2 WORK!!

1.) LAY OUT NEWSPAPER!! LOTS OF LAYER AS IT GETS WET!! Have some extra off to the side to replace overly wet sheets
2.) Fill plastic containers with water
3.) Add sparkles to paint if desired
4.) Paint coffee filter making sure to use lots of water, Be CREATIVE, you can make patterns whatever you like!
5.) Let DRY!! (It actually dries WAY faster than I expected! You could be speed up with blow drier if your really impatient, I didn't so many of them that by the time I was done painting the first one's I did where dry!)
6.) Pinch and twist center of filter to form Flower (You could put several filters on top of each other to form a multi layer flower! These are especially pretty!!
7.) Wrap Pipe Cleaner or Tape Stick to Flower!!

VOILA!! Insta Garden only need to water once!! :)
Now that you've made your flowers you have all kinds of options as far as what to do with them!

I wanted to share some of mine but I didn't really have a vase or anything that I could use @ home to put them in, Being inventive I grabbed some Play-Doh out of the closet ,made a ball, stabbed the sticks in and there you go perfect flower pot!! Well my G*friend loved her bouquet!! She thinks I'm sooo crafty, its funny! I took some pictures they are not the best I apologize!! But its better than having to stretch the imagination!!

You could add some scented oil to the water if you wanted to make your flowers smell as pretty as they look. I'm going to try this out tomorrow!! I ran out of paint today, but I have food colouring in the cupboard so I'm going to give this a try using the dye instead of the paint!! Should be FUN!!

Looking for something to brighten up the place ?? Guys want to impress your GIRL?? Give this a try! It is quick and easy and these flowers are SUPER LOW Maintenance , Best of all they can LAST FOREVER!!

My son had actually made me some for Mother's Day in Kindergaren, His teacher bought little mini clay pots for each of the kids to put their little flowers in, It was really nice!!









HAPPY SPRING!!!

FRISKY FRIDAY!!!



Its FINALLY here!! I've been patiently waiting all week for FRIDAY and now its here!! HURRAY!! Tonight the Family will be going to cheer on our local hockey team the KOOTENAY ICE!! GO ICE GO!! A very good friend of ours daughter got free tickets from school for being a good girl on the playground!!(way to go H-P)They are all ready going to the game so they didn't need the free ones so she was kind enough to share with us!!! WE are all very excited!! My hubby mostly! Hes a HUGE hockey fan and loves every chance he gets to go support his local boys!!
The hockey game will be followed with the best part of the evening! GIRLZ NIGHT OUT!! with my Woodland LOVELY"S!! The kiddies will go home to bed with the hubby and I will continue the evening with some tasty cocktails followed by some much loved DANCING!! I Cant wait!!
In honor of ST.PATRICKS day tomorrow I decided to kick our evening out off with some pretty green JELLO SHOOTERS!!! This is my favorite way to kick off an evening out!!

I've decided to be kind to my dear friends this time and only made a half batch!
The recipe is quite simply! Just the way I like recipes to be!!

Choose your favorite flavour of JELLO! (For St. Patti's I picked up some FRUIT FIESTA Jello it's delicious and green! PERFECT!)
Boil your 1 cup of WATER, Pour into bowl with Jello powder, Stir til Dissolved
Add 1/2 COLD WATER
& 1/2 Vodka (rum could work as well I prefer vodka)

Pour into Shooter cups (I get mine from the dollar store, they are plastic and work GREAT!)
Refrigerate until PARTY TIME!!
Allow at least 2 hours to set!

My husband being the very intelligent man that he is has informed this morning that the farther in advance you make the jello shooters the more lethal they become! I received a brief science lesson from my beloved explaining that when the sugar is mixed with the hot water and alcohol it begins to ferment making more alcohol! Its not recommended that you make them to far in advance as you may harm your consumers accidentally! Alcohol poisoning is not fun from what I hear!!


Well this should be a GREAT NIGHT!! I''ll let you know how the Jello was! I'll try and get some pic's!!=) they are always fun to share the next day!!



HAPPY ST. PATRICK's DAY!!

May the luck of the Irish be with You!!

And now I WAIT!!!

I SURVIVED!!! So I had my interview this morning! It went well! I had dreamed that they fell instantly in love with me and hire me on the spot! (well without dreams what have u got??)
They are running the AD again on Friday, interviewing next week and then they will make their decision and inform candidates accordingly! Now I am forced to sit and wait for the next week and a half or so, replaying the interview over and over in my head, questioning "if I had answered this question differently or at all!!!" I hate waiting for things, even more than that I hate waiting for things that I want really badly!!
Guess all I can do is hope that they saw me for the great person that I am and feel I will be the best fit for the position!! (BECAUSE I SOOO WOULD BE!!)

Here's my next dilemma do I wait to hear back from them before I go search for plan B? or do I just go out and find plan B while I wait??

For now I'll wait I'm exhausted after all that stressing, in the end I spent about 5 hours on my cover letter and resume 12 hours stressing & all for a 10 minute interview!! NICE!!
I NEED A NAP!!!

Job Update...

I DID IT!!! I got dressed today and dropped off my resume, The girl that greeted me at the door immediately took me into her very messy office(they are reorganizing apparently) and set up an interview for @ 10am tomorrow morning. I am so excited I feel like the kids Christmas eve!! I doubt I'll be able to sleep tonight! However for every ounce of excitement is 2 more ounces of complete and under fear!! I was shaking like leaf just dropping my resume off, I can only imagine what I will be like when I have 2 people starring at me and asking me all kinds of ridiculous questions! How I respond to these said questions will make or break my future career with this company!
I have concluded I have terrible nerves and should probably seek professional help about this condition.
I think I'll go Google Interview preparation and go do some reading! Its been a couple years since my last interview so I want to be fresh!
My foots already through the door now I just need the rest of my body to get in!!
I'll just be my charming self and they'll be sure to love me!! =)

I'll keep you posted!

I need a JOB!!

OK so I have been procrastinating for quite some time now on finding a job. I haven't been real eager to sport the lovely khaki coloured uniform @ Timmy's )by that I mean Tim Horton's the coffee shop )or even worse the dread McD's (no been there did that already when I was like 14 don't need to relive that again). I did not go to college or university for a career so I'm not really "QUALIFIED" to do anything special! I've been a full time Mama first and for most , going on 8 years now and while I've worked part time for all 8 of those,I finally decided it's time to hang up that hat and try something new

I worked @ H&R Block (u know the income tax guys!) It did that for 7 years, I enjoyed it but mostly because of the people I got to work with and the fact that it was seasonal! By the time I hated working, tax season was over! I have taken their income tax courses and I prepared taxes for 4years. It was the kind of job you loved to hate!! I loved all the different people I got to meet at work, but who likes TAXES!! Most people hated you as soon as they sat down at your desk just because you where going to be the person that got to inform them they now had to pay CANADA REVENUE AGENCY thousands of dollars after already paying taxes each week all year long. Who would want that job.
It did have its flip side however you would get the people who LOVED you because you where the one who informed them CRA was going to be sending them a cheque for thousands of dollars!! Last tax season was my last and I gracefully ended my career as an assistant office manager! Good place to leave off I think!

That leads me to now! I need a job! We have been trying to get by on hubby's income alone and while it is a good income its self employed income so sometimes its inconsistent! Our line of work is very dependent on good weather as well so sometimes winter can be a little rough!

Ive been procrastinating because I hadn't really seen any jobs I really excited me! Until Friday when the paper came! I've had my eye on this add in there for a hotel in town that's hiring I figured if I had to do anything like that a hotel would be FUN!! To my dismay turns out I waited too long because the job is no longer in the paper! However in its place was a job I a have fallen absolutely in love with and I haven't even been hired or interviewed yet! Its all I can think about since I read it!! I read over the ad and it just SCREAMED... HIRE ME!!
Its office work but I like office work! I just don't like doing taxes!! lol I'm far to opinionated to be in that line of work it was going to get me into trouble eventually! DAM thieving Government!!

Coincidentally enough my husband did the stone work on the man's house who is doing the hiring so that may just give me the extra advantage I need to score this absolutely dreamy job!
I worked on my cover letter to attach to my resume for HOURS tonight trying to make it just right! I have always said that your cover letter is your marketing tool the product being yourself!
You need to sell yourself in that cover letter so the potential employer so the employer realizes you are the perfect eprson for the job! MY problem is Im terrible @ selling myself!!
Which leads me to the next reason for my procrastination. I am absolutely DREADing having to be interviewed for a job! I shutter just at the thought!
I'm a great person and a super employee but interviews make soo incredibly nervous it's sickening! My vision goes all blurry and my whole body shakes & I normally end up laughing uncontrollably! Not normally a good first impression!
I want this job so badly though I will make sure I do NOTHING to mess up my chances!
If I didn't care I would not have edited my cover letter a million times! I'm still not sure its good maybe I can get some of your friendly advise

Here's the one I wanted to send!!

Dear Potential Employer;
I saw your job posting in the paper and its all I've been able to think about since!
I think I would be absolutly perfect for this position!! Please just hire me and you wont be sorry! I promise!!
Sincerly yours
Despretly wants job!


ok ok I know that 's not going to get me hired so I continued to work on it and this is what I came up with!
Let me know ...Would you hire me???


Dear Potential Employer
I would like to apply for the position you have available for a Financial Centre Administrator.
My 7 years of office experience has left me with a multitude of skills and I feel that such skills along with my eagerness and ambition to learn and grow within an organization would make me a positive addition to your company.
I am a productive independent worker and an enthusiastic team player.
My upbeat and energetic personality make me easy to get along with and pleasant to be around.
Previous work experience has taught me how to be quick and effective at

multi-tasking in an organized and efficient manner.
I have also gained leadership qualities, computer proficiency, and great communication and problem solving skills.
I am dedicated, dependable and strive for excellence in all that I do.
I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my qualifications for this position in more depth and thank you in advance for your consideration for employment.

Sincerely,
Courtnie Brown


I go tomorrow morning to drop of my resume and interviews are being held Tuesday and Wednesday, The ad says only candidates selected for interview will be contacted so I figure I should know by Wed at the latest!!

Wish me LUCK!! I need all the help I can get!!

ME!!


Well I think its time to share a little about ME!! I have tried several failed attempts at this post, I actually finished one once posted it for an hour and then deleted it!! See I have this problem with short and sweet! When I tell A story about anything I tend to blah blah blah!



I'm this way whether it be in person, or on the Internet! Notice the increase number of picture posts!!:) My entries tend to turn into novels instead of short stories!

March Break Craft Kick Off!





It is officially the start of MARCH BREAK!! While I wish I could spend my 2 weeks sunning myself on the sandy beach of a tropical island and enjoying a nice cool refreshing Margarita or maybe I'll bring along the Buzz Queen to whip up some of that yummy looking Sangria she posted the other day! MMMM!=) OK OK back to reality here I could actually almost feel the sun on me for a minute there!

Instead of tanning, the kids and I will be CRAFTING, CRAFTING did I mention that we will be CRAFTING?? I have been promising my son (who loves to do crafts) for weeks now that over the break we will do TONS of CRAFTS!! Of course I'll share each and everyone with you here!=) So keep visiting for tons of fun crafts you 2 can do with your kiddies!

I thought I'd kick it off with a real FUN one my son did at school this year. He's in grade 2 and has done some pretty neat stuff this year! The teacher was kind enough to send home step by step instructions on how to do this one @ home.
HAVE FUN!!

BOUNCY BALLS!

Things you need:
1/8 or 1/4 cup of GLUE (sparkly GLUE works GREAT!)
1 Teaspoon of BORAX SOAP
1/4 cup of WATER


How to make it:
1.) Pour GLUE onto a plate
2.) Add SPARKLES if your using white glue
3.) Mix BORAX & WATER
4.) Slowly add small amount of BORAX/WATER solution to the GLUE while stirring (Popsicles are good fingers work too.)
5.) Once GLUE is FIR, pick it up ad begin rolling it between your hands to form a BALL!
6.) Spend ENDLESS hours ENJOYING your new BOUNCY BALL!!

FUN TIMES!!

So the best part of the blogosphere is all the wonderful people you get to meet from around the world! I haven't had a chance to meet many people online yet but I'm working on my networking! A great site to visit is MermaidandPhotographer,(see link under Places I stop by on side bar) She is Fun, Witty and Super Nice! She has made me feel right at home here in bloggerland!
One of my favorite things about visiting, is her interactiveness with her readers. She likes to have fun games, Ex boyfriends list stuff like that! I enjoyed her ex boyfriend game so much I popped by for a visit today to see what was next! and here it was... In honor of National Woman's Day (which I did not know was today or that even such a day existed! Learn something new everyday!!)
***Mermaid writes.....Girls, when you leave a comment on this post, I will reply with these 5 things about you:
1. I will tell you what song makes me think of you.
2. I will tell you what tattoo I think would suit you.
3. I will tell you my first opinion of you.
4. I will tell you the color or flavor of jello that I'd wrestle you in.
5. I will give you a nickname.
Court - Your turn (you're right we just met, so let's see how this goes)
1. WINNIE THE POOH theme song (just look at your display picture)
2. I would love to see a little bee on you, just above on your right shoulder blade, I think you could pull it off ;-)
3. Funny enough I expected it to be like Martha Stewart type content on your blog...ie cooking recipes.
4. We'll be wrestling in honey. Sticky but sweet.
5. Wendy (from Peter pan) - I love the little fairy pic on your blog, it somehow made me think of Neverland...so that's where I got Wendy from.
WOW Mermaid for someone who doesn't know me well you sure did great!
Here's my responses to your responses!
1. I guess there are worse songs that could remind you of me! (I think Im going to change my display pic now though;) Winnie the Pooh is my favorite Disney series, Eeyore Is my Favorite character.He's so glum you cant help but love him!
2. Never really thought about a bee, I do have a tattoo on my right shoulder blade:) its a purple sun! I also have a half moon on my left shoulder blade!
I LOVE TATTOOS!! I have 3 and will be going for lucky 4 soon! My lil bro is working on a pic for me!! Hurray! I going for an Monkey Angel with a devils tail! Ill explain in another post!=)
3. I was hoping to go for a Martha Stewarty feel only better! I am a very crafty person and jokingly a few times I have referred to myself as a Cuter version of Martha! I thought it would make for a fun blog name:) Stay tuned for some Martha type content! I doubt I'll play much with recipes,(although I do love to cook and bake) I think I'll leave the yummy recipes for the Buzz Queen shes so awesome at it!!
4. MMMMM Honey, thought we where doing jello but I like honey doesn't sound as cold & squishy!
5. Wendy funny that, that's the name you choose! I once dyed my hair this wicked red colour in 8th grade, I had dirty blonde hair when I dyed it so I'm sure you can imagine what kinda red it turned out to be! Anyways my dad said that I looked like WENDY as in the burger joint WENDY! Thank god the dye was the kind that that washes out in 6 washes! I washed my hair like 6 times in one shower! I did not want to be the new spokes model for the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger! I like the Neverland Wendy though she was cool! She got to fly and live in Neverland and had a chance at eternal youth!! Sounds good to me!!=)
Thanks for the FUN post Mermaid!! Can't wait to see whats up next!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!


Poker Humor






I should be SLEEPING!!

Well I went and played poker after writing my last post ...After several failed attempts I decided put that on hold for tonight and go play with my hubby for a bit instead! Now it's 1:55AM and I know I should be in bed sleeping but I prefer to torture myself (mostly my eye's as they struggle to stay focused on the screen!) My lack of sleep over the last few months are slowly taking there toll! I really should invest in some good eye cream to help aid the rapidly growing bags under my eyes!! I am going to start charging them rent soon!
I have no one to blame but myself its not like anyone ties me to the computer til all hours of the night or should I say early morning! I've always been a night person being a kid sucked having to go to bed when normal people did!! I swear I was a Vampire in another life or maybe an Owl I was definitely nocturnal! All this would be well and good if I did not have children that required me to get out of bed in a few short hours!! I'm still fairly young so I can normally go on long bouts of insomnia without to many side effects! I'm sure my lack of ZZZ's is a direct link to my rapid mood swings and just general crankiness lately!
I don't mean to be a B****! I just AM!! I've been tormenting myself with sleeplessness since I got pregnant with my son 8 years ago its just become routine. Night time is MY time!! All day I am a MOM, I am a very strong willed 3 year old's mom (the 7 yr old is at school all day! I love school!!) and this 3 year old is a great one but lately she sure is testing the water! That too could be a direct link to my general crankiness or a direct result of my crankiness either way at some point in the day shes becomes not very fun!! She may look cute but she's a devil in disguise!

My favorite time of day is when I tuck both my babies into their beds, kiss them good night and tell them I love them!

My second favorite part of the night is when they are fast asleep in their beds and quiet as church mice!! Now I can sit and be ME!! I don't have to fetch anything for anyone or clean up anything! I can sit on the computer and actually pay attention to what I'm doing! Most nights I spend editing post I tried to start earlier in the day that I don't dare publish until I've had a chance to sit and reread them coherently!

My only problem is that I enjoy this time so much I don't want it to end which leads to me staying up until early morning playing online POKER & BLOGGING!!

What time do you go to bed?? What time to you wake up?? Do you feel the sleep you get is enough to function & contribute to society effectively??
My father in law always says...
" You have all the time in the world to SLEEP when your Dead!!"
On that note my eyes really do hurt so I'm going to pretend I'm buried 6 feet under & I'm going to go dream about SUNSHINE & FLIP FLOPS for tomorrow!!
Don't let the bed bugs bite!
If this makes absolutly NO SENSE when reading its because I wrote it when
I SHOULD BE SLEEPING!!=)

Poker Madness!!




My hubby and I are pretty avid online poker players , that's putting it mildly we don't have cable so Poker fills in the time. My hubby is an extremely good player, he has won a bit of $$ playing in tourney's. That's how we payed for his trip from Ontario to B.C! Myself on the other hand I'm not a terrible player but I don't see my name reserved on any World Series of Poker Chairs as of yet! I am working on that though! I sit and watch him a lot and when I do play I try to play as tight as possible and reserve my chips for only premium hands! Ive won little prize amounts but nothing significant definitely not as much as him! Today I played in a freeroll which is a no entry fee tourney that pays real money! I normally don't like playing poker when the kids are still awake, I find it very hard to focus on the game,way to much going on all at once my brain tends to over load!

Today my hubby had asked me to play in this tourney hosted by a Poker Forum he belongs to called Railbirds. Members of railbirds are everyday people who all share a love for the game of Poker! 98% of them are excellent poker players who take the game quite seriously! At http://www.railbirds.com/ you can chat with other players, Blog poker tips or just plain rant about the donkey who called your Ace Ace with 3,4 off suit and won! Its all poker all the time! They also host private daily freerolls for members only! That's what I played in today!
I did surprisingly well, I even shocked myself! I really surprised my hubby when he came home from work to find me still playing with a nice sized stack! After 2.5 hours of playing only the PREMO hands, I went ALL IN with pocket Queens. I gracefully placed 20th (out of 600) and won $1.20, not a bad return for a free game! If I had to get beat out holding anything I was glad it was with my ladies:)
Everything I've learnt about online poker I've learned from my hubby! However our style of playing couldn't be more different! Everyone has their own style and that couldn't be more true for the 2 of us! Poker for him is all about Math and Strategy, very heady! If you ask me Poker is 30% brains, 20% FUN & 50% bullshit LUCK! If luck wasn't involved it wouldn't be gambling! And if it wasn't FUN no one would want to play, You don't need much brains to play the game,
You do however require some brains in order to successful and win big money!
I don't think about the cards other people are holding, I simply wait for my premo hands (AA, AK, QQ ) BET them accordingly & hope for the BEST! (Brains,Fun, Luck)
This is probably why I'm not sporting a beautiful W.S.O.P bracelet but my game will only improve the more I play so I'm not giving up on that dream just yet instead I'll take my free $1.20 and see how much $$ I can turn it into!

One of the sites we play on is offering series freeroll events eventually leading to Paid Seats into the World Series of Pokers Main Event which has INCREDIBLY prize payouts!
Any one can buy a seat into the W.S.O.P but it'll cost ya!! $10,ooo.oo to be exact!!
I think I'll keep trying @ the freerolls or see how much my $1.20 turns into.
The freerolls go off every 5 mins so you have lots of opportunity!
Ill get lucky one of these days and actually win one! Im gonna go try Round 1 right now!
Wish me luck!

I'll keep you posted on my progress to becoming the next Worlds Greatest FEMALE Poker Player! & my Quest for my very own W.S.O.P bracelet.



5 REASONS TO PLAY GOLF!!










I think that says it ALL!!! =)

laughter is the best medicine!

I decided to clean out my hotmail email account this morning... turns out I had 141 some odd messages 100 if which are complete junk that somehow slipped through the spam filter, the other 41 where forwards from family and friends! Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that very few people ever type their own emails anymore?? Ever title in the subject line includes at least one FWD...Most them I are hilarious and I'm glad someone took the time to think of me and pass it on! Here's one my dad sent on I thought Id share it because it made me smile! After the week I've had I needed to smile!
I hope no one finds any offence to it!!
Author unknown...
In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives. Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and Magnums. And Satan said "You want hot fudge with that? and Man said "Yes!" And Woman said "I'll have one too with chocolate chips". And so they gained 10 pounds.And God created the healthy yogurt that woman might keep the figure that man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 12 to size 14. So God said "Try my fresh green salad". And Satan presented Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast. God then said "I have sent you healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them". And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks and chicken fried steak, so big it needed its own platter, and Man's cholesterol went through the roof.Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition. Then Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt. And Man put on more pounds.God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.Then God gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and the 99p double cheeseburger. Then Satan said "You want fries with that?" and Man replied "Yes, And super size 'em". And Satan said "It is good." And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.God sighed .......... and created quadruple by-pass surgery. And then .............Satan chuckled and created the National Health Service.

THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITION After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health:
1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
Sometimes with laughter comes tears! As I continued to clean out my email box I came to one entitled Gold Wrapper ...Isn't it funny how things we read can speak so clearly to you! It said to email it to all my friends your familiar with the wonderful world of horrible chain mail! The only reason I even bother reading them is because the life's lessons I learn from them are very worth reading 98.8% of the time!

"Gold Wrapping Paper" I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose. The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said, "This is for you, Momma." The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner. "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?" She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full." The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger. An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life. Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there. In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold. You now have two choices: 1. Pass this on to your friends and family on your mailing list. 2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart. As you can see, I took choice No. 1.
I think UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is the greatest gift we can give our children or anyone for that matter! Its great because it fits comfortably into EVERYONES price range! Even the poorest or poor can give!
Its not something that can be bought and wrapped in fancy paper:) Instead it is learned when it is shared!!
I wanted to share this with more than just the people on my mailing list ( I don't have a long list) I put it here that way I can share with all of you!
Yesterdays latest edition to my series of unfortunate events has left me an emotional wreck today, I'm super moody, the dark clouds looming in the sky when I woke up made me wanna crawl back into bed! I was counting on SUN!! 6:30am was not what time I had hoped to get woken up by my little princess! It hurt just to open my eyes! I don't remember what time I finally made it to bed last night but I do remember passing out on the couch while in the middle of an online poker game @ 1:30 or so! Thank god my hubby was up keeping an eye on my game ...he took over and let me sleep! I wonder how we did?:) One thing yesterday taught me and that is never to take the simple things in life for granted!!
Life's to short to put conditions on love!!

Meet My adopted blog buddies!

I just wanted to take a moment and introduce you to the latest edition to the Komar household! On the left hand side of the page you'll find a couple of cute little critters, I was surfing the blogosphere one night for cool widgets and stumbled across these cool new friends!
I have 2 younger kids at home so I haven't wanted to make the time a real pet requires! Maybe in a few years when the kids are a bit older! Until then I am quite happy to take care of my newly adopted blog pets! Spunky the monkey likes it when you feed him bananas...( you can do this by clicking on the more tab inside his box!) Don't make it easy for him though he likes a challenge! Place them around the tree!
Freddie the puppy has a bag of doggy treats in his box he likes when you feed him those! He also likes when you throw the bones that are hiding inside the more tab in his box!

These are definitely my kind of pets!NO MESS to clean up and they are they dont make a sound!!:)

ENJOY!!

EXeS

~~turns screen...Hubby's sitting right beside me playing poker so I'll just turn my screen a little bit so this isn't staring him right in the face!! Ex-boyfriends are not normally something your current partner wants to think about! I know for me the thought of him being with other people before me weirds me out! He's 10 years old than I am so its not like I'm ignorant to that fact that he was with other woman before me its just something I prefer not to think about and I'm sure those feelings are mutual! Although I was young when we met I wasn't totally inexperienced! Mermaid stopped by the site today and left me and invite to come over to her site and play a game, Her game was to list your ex relationships, I decided instead of leaving my list in the comments I'd just do a whole post! Its not like my list is huge! Keep in mind my actual dating experience was pretty short and sweet! My first real boyfriend was in grade 9 when I was 14 and my last was when I was 16 going on 17.Here's my list=)
In chronological order...
Joe- he was my first for a few things!=) We hung in 3 months
Mike-Joe^ is the one who hooked us up (after we had broken up for a while! It was kinda weird having your ex set you up!) Mike moved to B.C so we broke up after a month
Justin-We dated on and off for months...He'd come by when he was bored that kind of thing=)
Phil-We dated for 6 months I thought I was sooo in love with him! God was I clueless!
Andy-we dated for 2 months he was just someone to pass the time with, only boyfriend I wasn't intimate with (sorry Andy=)
I gave up on boyfriends for 6 months and just had fun! (that's a whole other list!)
Then I met Keith! He's the Love of my life! Fiance for 8 years and counting:) My babies daddy=) My best friend and by far the BEST BOYFRIEND and lover on the list!! and I'm not just writing that because he's peeking over my shoulder beside me! lol
Thanks for the fun game to play mermaid! How did I score?
I really enjoyed that trip down memory lane! It made me truly thankful I ended up with who I did! I dated some real LOSERS!! ah the joys of being young and STUPID!!
All part of the wonderful adventure called LIFE!!!

NO REGRETS!!=)

What a day!

Do you ever feel like life just keeps repeatedly kicking you in the ass?? I sure do!
Our family has not had the greatest start to 2007, who needs cable when you live reality t.v!
WE have gone through what I like to call a very long series of unfortunate events!
Just when you think you've seen it all, my heart is put to yet another test this one the scariest of all!!
I received a call from my hubby at around 10:30am, Normally I enjoy calls from him but not of this nature! Turns out our son did not return to class after recess and they could not find him!
Now I'm sure if the school had not been fully aware of our series of unfortunate events this temporary misplacement of my child would have gone a lot smoother! Q~ball is not the type of kid to to just disappear without a logical explanation!

My hubby immediately upon receiving the phone call from the school left work and went to the school where there still was no sign of Q! His stuff was all there boots, coat, backpack! Where the hell is he? Everyone is frantic (teachers, friends,parents!!) The R.C.M.P where called and put on alert & my hubby and our employee began the search driving around the school area & home! I felt devastated and completely helpless while my child was out there somewhere missing! I'm not one to sit around in situations like this so me and Taylor decided to head to the school! I ran as far as I could pushing Taylor in the buggy! (against her will she wanted to walk but that would take WAY to long!!) I'm not in very good shape so running wasn't the best idea! !
I only had one thing on my mind at this time MUST FIND MY BABY, my deepest fear was that a certain person responsible for our families prior series of unfortunate events was also responsible for this!
Half way to the school my hubby called me on the cell, the search party had been called off & he had been found safe and sound in the reading room @ school READING!!! THANK GOD!!
My heart finally slowed down and I began to catch my breath!
Q is part of a one to one reading program at school, as it turns out the grown ups in charge of the reading had picked him up after recess to go read...neglecting to inform his poor teacher! I can only imagine how she must have felt as she placed that phone call to Qs dad! "Hi Q's Dad,this is Q's teacher, turns out we have accidentally misplaced your child, he did not return to class after recess and we are not entirely sure where he may have gone!" I certainly would not want to make that call! She really is a great teacher and I am so thankful Q has had her! We owe her some serious morning coffees to make up for all the DRAMA we have caused! She was extremely relieved to know he was in fact safe @ reading and Q has promised never
to go off without telling someone!
Those 20 mins while I feared for my sons safety where absolutely the most horrific 20 mins of my life!! My heart definitely thinks it could do without all this excitement! I cant help but agree!
Well the saying goes...When it rains it pours and WE have been flooding around here lately but
THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW!! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!
Its early in the year, guess we may as well get all the crap out of the way right off the start so we can relax and enjoy the rest of the year! I think we have definitely gone through a years worth of crap so the rest of the year should be packed full of happiness! That something to be optimistic about! Tomorrows only a day away!
Every BLACK cloud has a SILVER lining!!
Keep on SMILING*!!

Playtime!

It was a Georgous day today!

It was an absolutely beautiful spring like day outside today! The temperature was 10 degrees Celsius! The little princess and I abandoned our inside duty's and spent most of the late morning early afternoon outside! We played with the neighbours kitty for a bit, that lead to a walk to the store for some candy:) It felt so nice to be out of the house without all the winter gear on! I was a little over zealous though and attempted our walk in flip flops! Ya that didn't work out so well! I made it around the corner and to the bottom of the hill the leads to the store and had to go back for some socks and shoes! Turns out not all the snow had melted off the sidewalk! Ill give it a few more weeks before I do that again!
The snow in the front yard is rapidly vanishing and that leaves me feeling super optimistic about the beautiful weather that is finally here!! Winter is WAY too long if you ask me! It could snow Dec 1 and all melt January 2 and that would be a perfect winter!
The cold months always leave me feeling low! I think its the lack of sunshine!

I have walked more this past week then I did in the last 5 months combined and I feel awesome! I'm sure my car being on his death bed has a lot to do with my increased exercise its been a good thing as the exercise is long over due!

Here's to Sun Shinning & SNOW MELTING!! Bring on the Flip Flops!!

Count down to The Sweet Escape!!



99 days and counting!! I don't think June 12 is going to come fast enough! What exactly is this The Sweet Escape I am very impatiently awaiting?? The Sweet Escape is the title to Gwen Stefani's newest Album and the name of her up coming tour! The Calgary Saddle dome will be graced by her presence and a performance on June 13 and among the other 1000's of screaming fans I will also be in attendance! A couple of girlfriends and I will be road tripping into Calgary for a Girls Mid Week ESCAPE!! I have only been to one other concert in my whole life (SANTANA) and I could not be any more excited about going to see someone who has actually been famous in my lifetime! (not that Santana isn't an awesome artist he just experienced his true FAME long before I was even born!)
Gwen has sang lead vocals for the group NO DOUBT since the late 80's, In 2003 she branched outside of music and introduced her own clothing label called L.A.M.B, In 2004 she spread her wings even more and soared off as a Solo Artist! Her first album was titled Love.Angel.Music.Baby. = L.A.M.B
My friend had been talking about the upcoming tour for months! (Since they posted the tour date, but long before tickets went on sale!) Her excitement made me wish I could find a way to go with them! Ive never really had any girlfriends that I can go do stuff with never, mind road tripping and concerts! I settled down into family mode @ 17 so concerts and road trips weren't at the top of my to do list. At first I didn't think there was any way I could go, the show is in the middle of the week and its during our busiest time of year for work SUMMER, Who will watch the kids?? Well has luck would have it my in laws are moving to town the end of MARCH! Perfect! They will watch the kids! Now I just have to convince my Hubby to let me go 4 hours away for 3 days without the kids and HIM! I'm cute & often irresistible so I figured if worse came to worse Id just pull out my charm!

Sometimes if you wish for something hard enough it can come true!! =) HE said YES!
WE have our tickets!(really great seats from what I understand!!) Our hotel reservations have been made, Now we just have to PATIENTLY wait for it to be June!!
Wish me luck I'm not always the most patient person!! Just ask my hubby! I am already torturing him with GWEN, GWEN, & more GWEN, He may bury me in the back yard with my Gwen Cd before June even gets here!!=)

Would you like to see if The Sweet Escape will be visiting a town near you?? ~~Click Here http://www.gwenstefani.com/tour/default.aspx for Tour Dates & Tickets!!

You'll notice some Pictures on the right sidebar Titled C&K Masonry,
Allow me to introduce our bread and butter! My hubby is a Mason by trade and we run our own little company.

Masonry is a dying trade that is extremely high in demand right now, from where we sit this is a great thing...means very little to no competition! Our first winter here has been kind of quiet for work so I am anxiously awaiting summer so we can dive head first into continuing to beautify our little Paradise 1 rock at a time!!

May require Kleenex!

I received an email today from a dear friend in Ontario, its PEAK tax season right now and she works for H&R Block so her free time is pretty non existant until May, It was super nice to hear from here during all the madness! The email was a god awful chain letter (thank you=) with it was this incredibly moving poem that I just had to share!! I could hardly finish reading from the tears in my eyes! I had to go put on a sweater from the chills!

Get your Kleenex ready and ENJOY!!

A Poem That Gives You Goosebumps(they weren't lying!)...
A drunk man in an Oldsmobile They said had run the light That caused the six-car pileup On 109 that night. When broken bodies lay about "And blood was everywhere," "The sirens screamed out eulogies," For death was in the air. "A mother, trapped inside her car," Was heard above the noise; Her plaintive plea near split the air: "Oh, God, please spare my boys!" She fought to loose her pinned hands; "She struggled to get free," But mangled metal held her fast In grim captivity. Her frightened eyes then focused "On where the back seat once had been," But all she saw was broken glass and Two children's seats crushed in. Her twins were nowhere to be seen; "She did not hear them cry, " "And then she prayed they'd been thrown free, " "Oh, God, don't let them die! " Then firemen came and cut her loose, " "But when they searched the back, " "They found therein no little boys, " But the seat belts were intact. They thought the woman had gone mad "And was traveling alone, " "But when they turned to question her, " They discovered she was gone. Policemen saw her running wild And screaming above the noise "In beseeching supplication, " Please help me find my boys! They're four years old and wear blue shirts; "Their jeans are blue to match."" "One cop spoke up, ""They're in my car, " And they don't have a scratch. They said their daddy put them there "And gave them each a cone, " Then told them both to wait for Mom To come and take them home. "I've searched the area high and low, " But I can't find their dad. "He must have fled the scene, " "I guess, and that is very bad." "The mother hugged the twins and said, " "While wiping at a tear, " "He could not flee the scene, you see, " "For he's been dead a year." "The cop just looked confused and asked, " "Now, how can that be true? " "The boys said, ""Mommy, Daddy came " "And left a kiss for you."" " He told us not to worry "And that you would be all right, " And then he put us in this car with "The pretty, flashing light. " "We wanted him to stay with us, " "Because we miss him so, " "But Mommy, he just hugged us tight " And said he had to go. He said someday we'd understand "And told us not to fuss, " "And he said to tell you, Mommy, " "He's watching over us." The mother knew without a doubt "That what they spoke was true, " "For she recalled their dad's last words, " " I will watch over you." The fire men's notes could not explain "The twisted, mangled car, " And how the three of them escaped Without a single scar. "But on the cop's report was scribed, " "In print so very fine, " An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 109."
