Hello World!

Boy have I missed blogland! I have been traveling, and then I came right home to moving and I have had NO time to read my favorite blogs, and reply to your guys' comments until this past weekend. Moving has been a drag, which moving tends to be, but I am starting to feel more settled and don't have much left to put away, so that's good! So sorry for all the delay around here! I figured I better kick off this Monday with some Life Should be a Party! &I can't wait to update you on the rest of my travels in the next little bit.

Little to Big things I am celebrating in my life lately...
+having the opportunity to go to SMA camp. It was amazing. I love those kids so much, and was so happy to be apart of it.
+spending lots of time with my adorable nephews. they are a handful, but I cherish the time.
+being able to spend some time with my grandparents. they live in Nanaimo &I never get to see them. It was sooooo much fun :)
+getting to spend time in British Columbia, to me it is one of THE most beautiful places ever.
+having wonderful family &friends helps us move! I don't know what we would have done without them.
+getting to have some girl time with my little sister! living in the same city is going to be a blast!
+trying to get back on track with my health... vacations can mess you up, and I want to eat right and start working out again. I am feeling motivated! I went on a run this morning and everything.
+actually having some time alone all day with Trevor, even if it is packing and cleaning, I still enjoy it :)
+oh and pizza rolls. yes I am going to celebrate pizza rolls, because they are the best little creation of loveliness that you can just pop in your mouth haha

What have you guys been celebrating as of late? 
I am thinking of possibly starting to feature on my blog YOUR submissions of your Life Should be a Party Monday blog posts. Does that make sense? So not just the link up but an entire post on my blog would be your life should be a party post! Maybe a couple times a month? I don't know. What do you guys think? Would you all be down for that?

  12. Um, first of all...PRETTY PICTURE! :) Seriously, are you just beautiful! Is that the "Cider" dress from Shabby Apple? I'm just a little obsessed with that dress. I, too, am celebrating some time with my lil sis (she's half my age {12}), but we have so much fun together!

    Oh, and I think Monday guest posts would be awesome. I know I'd love to do one!

    p.s. And OF COURSE I'm celebrating every second with my new BABY BOY! I love him! I love him! I love him!

  29. I went for a really long run today, too, I feel so great now!
    I always think it is a cool idea when bloggers feature other bloggers, so I think you should go ahead and invite your favorite bloggers to tell your readers why their life is a party on a couple Mondays a month.

  30. Well, first of all, I love to celebrate. Lately, I've been celebrating good health, a growing family and delicious vegetables.

  31. So glad you had such a good time with the family. Nothing more important. :)
    Hope you get settled in soon, no matter how many times I've moved (and it's a lot) I still hate it every time. bleh!

  32. Life is definitely more fun if it's a party :-). I wish I could go to British Columbia too! I've seen pictures and it looks like such a wonderful place! xoxoxoo

  33. Isn't BC the best? My dad lives on Gabriola (that little island just off the coast of Nanaimo) and i think it's one of the most magical places in the world. And of course, i love and miss vancouver. Hope being back home is nice too :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sounds like you've been having a blast :) Glad you're back!

  35. Camp is so much fun. I went to camp every summer as a kid for a few weeks at a time, and it was the best place for me EVER (and I hated NOT being there). That's so cute that you get to spend time with your little sister. I wish I could spend closer time with each of my two older brothers (which I do see them, but not enough one on one time since we're all married and two of us have kids).

  36. What a lovely post :) I'm with you on trying to get back on my health- I don't mind working out once I'm doing it, but going to the gym is absolute torture, definitely the hardest part! xo
