Can't wait for Garage Sale Season!

I never shared our household's latest big purchase as we got it right before we left on vacation.

But this baby is why I can't wait for the weather to warm up and take me garage sailing!

Not only can I fit large pieces of furniture in here no problem. But this beast will come in handy big time when we tackle our backyard landscaping and our basement renovation.

Messy but delicious!

Okay, so I am a little late, but I wanted to share my shameful Valentine's Day contribution.

Cory hates v-day so we didn't officially celebrate it this year. However, on the way home from work I got the urge to make something so I whipped up this cake, in a pretty heart shaped baker from Princess House (ask me about it if ur interested, I sel them!) The only photo I snagged was right after I iced it, and it was a little melty, so excuse the mess. I don't bake or cook often so regardless of it's appearance, anything that survives is an achievement!

Hope you had a wonderful love day!

Back to cold and working :(

We got back from a wonderful getaway to Mexico on Wednesday night! Our week-long trip was amazing and not long enough, but at the same time we were eager to get home!

The weather was gorgeous and the wedding beautiful. It was probably the first and last time we'll ever take a vacation with ALMOST all our friends like this, and it was soooo wonderful to be a part of things. There were almost 50 in our group and it was so much fun spending times with our best friends and getting to know some people who I barely knew since they live in other parts of the country.

Cory is super close with his group of friends from high school and earlier which I think is amazing. What an extrordinary group, I am so glad to call them all friends!

Besides the wedding, there was plenty of time for snorkelling, swimming, sunbathing, a ridiculously cool 25 person private catamaran tour where we even swam with a sea turtle and got to see other neat-o things that live under the sea.

However, as good as it was, there's nothing like coming home. Especially when we had our fur babies waiting at home for us. A big Thank you to my mom who took care of everything while we were gone; on her bday no less! We love you

Coming home wasn't all fantastic though. Apparently my suv died sometime during the week and my mom was trapped at the house since my car was behind her truck... Oops. All fixed now and thankfully covered by warranty!

I also broke my tooth on vacation and will need to get into my dentist very soon. Not looking forward to that bill...

We have a ton of stuff to do unpacking wise round the house so as soon as I get a free second, I will get some photos on here for you.

I'm in search of a new rug for sure this time since finley threw up on ours a few times yesterday and we're calling it officially finished. A homesense gift card is burning a hole in my wallet!
