You think I’m spoiled? Well so is Cowboy, trust me.

I know you’re asking yourself why does this crazy Cowboy trucker love this chick sooooo much?  I mean she is brash, swears like a sailor (or trucker), drinks wine by the gallon…wow she must be a dynamo in the sack.  Well that may be true (it is, ask him he’ll tell you, no really he …

I’m old. Thankfully I still look amazing….

Ok so here is my claim to fame, I’m 43 years old and have NO grey hair.   I’ve been yelling that from the roof tops since a certain BFF started going grey in her 20’s.  I mean I LOVE the fact that I can say “oh i don’t colour my hair it’s completely natural” …

This is actually post 602 but 2 of my many posts aren’t “open” to the public so I’m celebrating THIS post as number 600. I’m celebrating this by posting about my recent surgery.  I know it’s weird but I write about my life and my life this week included surgery.  I was told by my …

Bento boxes will change your life…

First I should say that I am publicly apologizing for all the craptastic lunches that my kids have had to live through for all these years.  Until I discovered bento box lunches my kids ate a combination of sandwich meat and apples for over 15 years I’ve had school aged children.  And then I discovered …

Dogs…and my weird kid.

I’ve had dogs pretty much my entire adult life.  The first time I didn’t have a dog for an extended period was when we moved overseas. When we lived in Germany there was an incident with a little tiny yappy dog that came running towards Elijah and a fear was born.  It’s been a LONG …

1972

1972 .  I have NO idea when my parents actually split up but I do know that it was when I was really young and for some reason I’ve always thought I was 3 (lets say ish as it’s not important to the rest of the story).  I have no memory of my Dad living …

Date night, Cowboy hats and retro dressing…

Someone drove to California and back in record time so that they could attend the Fundraiser for my kids school.  I wasn’t shocked.  He is always so sweet, I knew if he could physically do it, he would.  Never disappoints me, this Cowboy of mine. However I was REALLY happy ‘we’ decided to NOT go …

I was Country, when Country wasn’t cool….

I’m from Saskatchewan.  I’m ridiculously proud of that fact.  Because I’m from Saskatchewan I can sing the words to Crystal Chandelier by Charlie Pride without even thinking about it.  Because I’m from Saskatchewan I know that before Reba was just plain Reba she was Reba Mcentire and she sang Country & Western music and was …

2013 The Year of Awesome!

So I’m not big on resolutions.  Every year I make the same one, drink more wine and buy more yarn.  Every year I make it true.  I’m a yarn hoarding alcoholic at this point so it’s all good.  BUT I do believe in setting intentions for the year.  Last year was the year of change. …
