lets go back a few months

At the end of may Jascha and I went to Puerto Vallarta with our friends Jon and Tara. We stayed at Velas Vallarta up by the marina, the resort was amazing beautiful pools and super nice staff. It was so expensive but worth it.

We spent a lot of time in the pools, the beach was clean but it was not nice clear water to swim in. We went to Walmart and bought some handy pool floaties this is Tara and I on Pinkus O'Shamus and the Water Sausage. No these were not named during one of our more sober moments.

We did two day trips one involving snorkeling, lunch, waterfall and a nice beach. How it went down was a little different no snorkeling stop due to hundreds of jellies in the water, very questionable chicken fajitas made on an island with no refrigeration. To finish it off a horse ride on anorexic Mexican horses to a teeny waterfall running into sludgy brownish water.

Notice the life ring floating on the right.

This beach right here made the whole day worth it , crystal clear water.

The second day trip was zip trekking in the rain forest. I was terrified at first, but it was so amazing.

I cant forget about the little monkeys.

The highlight of the trip was undoubtedly witnessing baby sea turtles hatching on the beach in front of our hotel. I think they were Logger heads but I'm not certain. Once they started hatching we stayed on the beach until every last one of them made it to the ocean.

Some parting shots.

ya it's been awhile

So I guess it's time to post its only been 6 months or so lol

Mom got married on the weekend it poured the backyard was a mud pit yes it was an outdoor wedding. I will post muddy pictures soon.

I made the wedding cake for mom and niel i was really happy how it turned out. As soon as I have pictures I will post. I also made the cake for my cousin Alana's wedding in edmonton this past March.

So thanks to Holly I have a new hobby I started making my own jewellery earrings and necklaces mostly. I am going to try to sell them consignment at this little shop called Under the Moon in PoCo.

Our rotten black cat Blade is an escape artist I caught him in the act yesterday. He climbed out of the little pop out window at the top of the second picture. The neighbour brought a ladder over so I could get him down.

Phoeenie lumpagus

Phoenix is so cute , I was looking through all the digital pictures from the past few years. Not only is he very photogenic we seem to have an overabundance of pictures of him. Way more pictures of him than of anyone else.

snip snip

So I decided that maybe I needed a new haircut and I wasnt really interested in cutting it off. So Andie chopped the bangs , I mean really chopped.

Boob cake

I make cakes , I took a class so I could learn the tricks. The girls at work birthdays are just a few days apart so they requested a joint cake. Easy for me one less cake to make. Ashley wanted a boob cake so I found little boob shaped molds and made my very first boob cake. I exceeded my own expectations.

Dad is a TV god

My dad and is wife were down from 100 mile this past weekend so we had early Thanksgiving. The pumpkin pie was apparently quite delicious so I'm a proud pie maker now.

My Dad is a master fixer of all things broken , so I asked him if he would take a look at the TV while he was down. This TV was about a year and a half old when it spontaneously stopped turning on. It was a nice big flat screen 32" heavy MoFO , so months go by not wanting to chuck it not really wanting to spend hundreds fixing it. It sat in the hallway in the bedroom I repeatedly had bruised legs from walking into it. So the master fixer of all things broken opened it up and checked it and 5 min later handed me a blown fuse. So $3.99 later TV fixed yay.

So the old problem returns (this is much less annoying problem) the nice big TV is too big to fit into the old entertainment unit. So I spent the day at IKEA , I've noticed at IKEA that things are either a very very good price or way to expensive for particle board. I didn't find a unit that I liked so I got a TV bench and a book shelf and put the shelf on the bench. The TV just barely fits it's snug for sure.

Today I baked my first pie ever

Today I made a Trifle two pumpkin pies in preparation for tomorrow our early Thanksgiving. My Dad is in town so hey why not I will take whatever Thanksgiving I can get.

I have no idea if the pie is going to be tasty , like I said this is my first pie baking experience ever. I hate pumpkin pie so there is really no chance that I will find it yummy. Its kind of gross really if you think about it, the canned pumpkin looked and smelled like baby food. Who thought to make squash pie anyway.
