Cookie Day


When jon and I started dating, we worked at the same company but at different departments. We kept it a secret from other co-workers to keep it professional at work, etc.
On our 3 months together we walked to Starbucks during our break time and got a cookie to celebrate. He was the one who took the lead on this cause although I knew it was our 3 months, I didn’t want to scare him off with being mushy for noting our 3 months together. in case he wasn’t mushy. It was a surprise that he wanted to celebrate too. Hahah.

On our 1 year anniversary he knocked on the door to my office which I was sharing with my boss and surprised me with a box of assorted gourmet cookies. It was awesome and delicious at the same time. The way to my heart is through my stomach, hahaha.

We made it a tradition to this day to celelbrate every 7th day of the month as cookie Day. A cute and yummy tradition to celelbrate with the kiddos.I love this tradition and I know for sure my kids enjoy the cookies;) too, hahah.



TGIF-means thank goodness it’s Friday! Friday’s were always family time.

My fondest memory was when it was hot summer in Alberta, we were having a heat wave. It would be too hot to sleep upstairs in our rooms so my dad would say, it’s cooler in the downstairs family room so we get to “camp” in our family room. My sis and I would be so happy getting our favorite toys and blankets and pillow collection cause we are “camping”. Friday’s were always the best cause on t.v they had this thing call TGIF where all these comedy shows would be on, one after another. It was awesome. My mom would either be doing laundry or ironing since that would be the time where my sis and I would sit still for hours. (My mom is super picky about the laundry, she would re-fold stuff if it’s not done her way which she still does to this day, ha). My dad would watch a show or maybe read.

I remember sometimes my mom or dad would have to work the next day. Yet, it was always a treat for them to be off the next day on the weekend. I loved Friday’s because it always felt like Family time. When they are off the next day it means MORE family time:)

I still feel that way to this day. When jon comes home from work, I always say yaaay! The kids and I are so happy! It’s always a different feeling compared to sunday evenings cause then I have to count down to Friday again. I love our family time:) i find that it’s so important to have that memory of family. It often brings that warmth to your heart getting to do the simplest things together. The littlest things can just be the things we remember the most. We have to cherish it all:)

The interview

I heard this story a long time ago that babies choose their parents. Although it may not make any sense, I thought to myself. if that is true and my kids chose me, then that’s awesome. I was always ALWAYS picked last in any sports team, so it’s nice to be picked for something. ahahah
