Meet Me On Monday.

My friend, Abby, started this on her blog today, and I thought I'd start too so my readers can get to know me a bit better! It is courtesy of Java at Never Growing Old!

1. What do you put on your hot dog?
I enjoy ketchup and banana peppers on my hot dog! Yum, now I want one.

2. Do you play Sudoku?
I don't play often but I do enjoy it!

3. What is your favourite vegetable?
Tie between cucumbers and cauliflower.

4. Do you colour your hair?
Yes, usually every six weeks except for when my hair dresser goes on maternity leave like she is now. Hopefully the baby comes soon and she gets back to work!

5. What is your favourite brand of clothing?
I don't have a favourite. I enjoy a bit of everything.

Five for Friday.

1. You listen to my silly work stories.

2. You care so ridiculously much about your friends. I think it's super cute you want to shop for gifts from across the country so they're truly from you, even though I'd gladly do it. SO cute. :)

3. You call me every day to see how P90X is going. It's fun to be doing it "with" you.

4. You always ask how I am.

5. When we were compromising on husband and wife duties, you took on my two least favourites. Now, can you please come clean my counter? It needs you.

Beautiful Day!

It's pouring here in Vancouver and absolutely ugly outside. Thankfully, I am in a ridiculously good mood regardless!

Here are some fun happenings that are taking away any chance of me having the Monday blues!

- I'm starting P90X today and pretty excited about it.
- I didn't gain any weight over Christmas (unless I lost it in the last couple weeks...)
- There are only two months left in this semester!
- Thailand in less than 80 days (and VERY soon after I get home will see Dan)!
- I was sick last week and I'm feeling 100% back to normal now!

So many happy things!

What are you excited about for the coming week?

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are all in harmony. - Gandhi

Five for Friday.

Where did the week go? I can't believe I haven't posted since my last Five for Friday.

1. You give me news about stuff and things as soon as you have it.

2. You helped me get a free download of P90x.

3. You console me when I'm upset and never make me feel silly even though there is a pretty good chance I am being silly.

4. You make waiting easy because you're more than worth it.

5. You helped me get my computer fixed which I'm forever grateful for because we can continue our Skype dates!

Five for Friday.

It's been awhile since I've done Five for Friday! I've been busying giving the boy real life love. I'm not having a great time adjusting to him being gone again! Three weeks at home formed somewhat of a routine that I'm currently working on getting out of!

1. You did my laundry when you were home on leave. I appreciated it because it gave me the opportunity to spend more time with you when I was home from work.

2. You're so cute and shared your favourite moments with me on the way to the airport.

3. You are beyond generous to me and my family.

4. We're 3/5 goodbyes down! Only two more goodbyes and we get to say hello for good! Can't wait!

5. You made dinner with me the last night you were home for your friends. You even rushed to the store at the very last minute to get eggs and milk for the yorkshires that I thought I needed and didn't. Sorry. :)

Black Forest Cake

As a surprise for Dan before he left, I decided to make him Black Forest Cake. Cakes aren't something I have really baked much, I prefer little cake morsels like cupcakes. They're much more manageable.

While I definitely became frustrated while making the cake, in the end all was okay and it turned out well! I'm not a huge fan of this cake to begin with, but I have to admit it was yummy!

You can find the recipe here.

Worst Blogger Award.

It's official. I'm giving myself the Worst Blogger Award. I have seriously slacked over the holidays and it's time to end the hiatus.

Happy New Year!!
The holidays came and went with a flurry. I'm having a hard time believing it's already the middle of January! My time with Dan was amazing and went by way to quickly.

Some exciting news!!!! I was going to go to Thailand in June but because of some concerns with Dan's schedule and my plans, Stacey and I decided it would be best to go in April!!!!! We couldn't be more excited! Another new development is that my sister, Mellie, is going to come too! Her school has graciously allowed her to miss two weeks of school so she'll volunteer with us and come to Bali with us too! Then, we'll send her off and head to the south of Thailand to lay on the gorgeous beaches. It will definitely help time pass before I see Dan again and is giving me something to look forward to!

I have some great recipes to share from the holidays and will work on doing that in the next couple weeks!
