  • Celebrities + books = amazing
  • Hummus hack
  • Resume tips: Lines to delete: The fact you’re familiar with Microsoft Word or Excel — newsflash, that’s like saying you know how to use your smartphone.
  • Just released: Jack could of fit on the raft
  • “The thing that sets children apart from adults is not their ignorance, nor their lack of skills. It’s their enormous capacity for joy.”
  • Homemade Love Hearts. Maybe next year
  • Always time for Lena

Have a great weekend! It’s a long weekend. I still think it is silly that we made-up a holiday just so we can have a holiday in February (says the self-employed grump who doesn’t get paid on stat days)… We’re spending the weekend on the Wallace River and the Wentworth Mountain.

Oh, and it’s the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials! Totally dorking out about this.

Happy Valentine’s Day, love to all!valentines 2016-socks-04psst. #runstreakday 82

And… remember when I said I was busy this week? One of the things I was working on is the launch of our new Bare All For The Barre website. Boys, get ready – September is going to be awesome! More details to come.

Have a great weekend! The Magical Mystical Mountain Destroyers are taking part in the second annual Storm The Mountain Adventure Challenge. Can’t wait. Plus, I have a cake to bake big enough for 37 candles!MMMDUnless I get lost in the woods, I will be back next week. Until then:

with a pom on top

My office in Montreal has a secret Santa gift exchange – and not the cheap $10-here-is-a-bunch-of-crap kind. We are big spenders.

I got my favourite tank from Lilas, and Caroline gave Nancy a toque (made by her mom) as a gift. My instant reaction was to snap a picture and send it to my mom (hint hint):IMG_4085Although Nancy’s was not faux, I am all about the faux fur pom pom toque. They’re everywhere this season. How can you not want one?

So, I returned to Halifax and began crafting up a request to my mom but was feeling…

  1. Guilty because she just made me an awesome sweater.
  2. Concerned because I knew my request would not be at the top of her crafting list. Winter is here.

My revised plan was to skip mom and buy a toque, but then I discovered I had a reject hat that’d be perfect for a pom pom! Etsy is a great resource for faux fur poms and within a week my mink brown faux fur poms arrived (I got two poms for $10 total). It only took me two minutes to attached and voila! I am happy, my pom bounces, and winter just got a bit better.DSC_0721DSC_0698IMG_4388

the “s” word

It is Easter Monday and there is still so much snow. Am I allowed to complain?

I am going to pitch remarketing the holidays – A Green Christmas and a White Easter, which actually makes sense, since Christmas trees are green and bunnies are white… just saying.

So, Saturday was the thrid-time-a-go Storm The Mountain Winter Eco-Challenge (I talked about it here and here). Because there’s been too much snow it was postponed twice and because of that, not all of our team could attend.* However, Mike and I convinced our friend Josh to join us making the defunct Magical Mystical Mountain Destroyers the Magical Mountain JokersIMG_2249

You’d think by April it’d become a Spring event but no, there was snow, lots of it, and we snowshoed our way to second place glory despite our lack of orienteering skills.** We figured out the compass and didn’t get lost! It was pouring rain and cold but still fun.

When we stumbled out of the woods, I was freezing, my boots were sloshing, my underwear was wet and I caught a bug – puking is recovery – but I’d do it again.

Sadly the annual Spring Eco-Challenge is not happening this year… wait for it … because there is too much snow!!!

Seriously, SNOW is the new “S” word.

* MacKenzie won U11 provincials in curling! Go girl!
** Second place in recreational… and there may of only been two recreational teams but who’s counting?!?
