*Bridal Gown for Sale*

One of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make has been …

whether to sell my bridal gown OR not!

After a lot of thinking, I have decided to go ahead and sell my gown.

A part of me would like to put it in a sealed box and keep it forever …

but another part of me would like to see someone else enjoy it as much as I have for a day.

So, I have put up my gown on but have NOT HAVE ONE SINGLE PERSON try and contact me.

So .. BLOGGERS – I NEED YOUR help & advice.

Is it worth putting money towards placing the ad in the top ads?
Do you have any other suggestions that might help me get some response?-

Visit my kijiji ad here!

and here is a picture of my gorgeous
Maggie Sottero – Fiorella gown …


Any suggestions would be gladly welcomed! Thank you : )

Sneak preview

So ... My best friend, Chantel got married to her best friend Kevin in August! :)

I was truly honored to be her matron of honor which was so special because she was mine the summer before!

Last night, my friend Sylvie & I got a special SNEAK PEAK at some of her professional pictures.

They are absolutely amazing!

I have no idea how she will be able to pick just 200 out of 4000!!!

Such a Difficult task.

We wrote down some of our favorites to help her out.

Here is one pic her photographers had online (which I added a banner using the labelbox app- love!)

Stay tuned for more folks! ... :)

Happy Saturday!

Classroom philosophy

I found this great poster on pinterest

& wanted to share …


Pinned by Angela Watson here!

It is so important for students to know that it is not about them individually but rather, about ‘WE’ together as a group.

It’s about what we can do as a classroom community to celebrate one another and feel good about all of our efforts.

I absolutely love my 25 students.

They work hard & respect one another.

They are also very creative which is amazing to see.

I know 2012-2013 will be another amazing year!

Have a great day!

Weekends go too fast!

Happy Monday Bloggers!

It has been quite some time since my last post which I am totally frustrated about because I thought I was back for good. I don’t know why but I can’t seem to get into a blogging routine at all. My life has been fairly busy though since the new school year has begun… so I feel as though I have an excuse.

Here are some of the things that have happened in my life so far:

My little brother got married!! :)


(From left to right: Hubby, Moi, Tara, my brother Robbie, Mom, & Dad)

He married the most fantastic lady! I just love her to pieces. They got married on September 1st in Red Deer, Alberta. My entire family flew out and we were there for a week!

We had such a great time! We got to visit Banff with my awesome aunts, uncles & cousins for an entire day (which I had already seen from living out West for a year after high school) …


~Banff, Alberta~


We even rode the Banff Gondola which brought us up to Sulphur Mountain.



The view at the top was just incredible!


All in all it was a fantastic trip, beautiful wedding & amazing time with family.

Now it’s back to the routine. I had so many plans and goals to accomplish this weekend & I did not do anything yesterday except relax at home. I’m sure it was much needed but now today, Monday, I feel totally unorganized & slightly stressed.

What are some of your weekend routines?

What helps you stay organized?
