a birthday thing post

Today I turn 32. It is pretty handy when your birthday falls on a weekend - I got to sleep in, have breakfast in bed, and have not gotten out of my pajamas yet today. (it is 2:30 pm) We are going to my parents for dinner tonight and I got to pick what my mom is making. (thanks mom!) I have been showered with lots of happiness this weekend from everyone!

Before we go, I am laying on the couch doing some laptop-ing, as I like to call it. (aka internet browsing of random things) Alas, here are some fun/cool things for you to check out if you are having a lazy Sunday as well.

Amanda just started using SPUD for her groceries. I am curious to check it out!

This site has the coolest patterns for everything!! (this one is too cute for a kitchen)

My friend Lisa is having a Norwex party this week. I found a few things online I think I will purchase!

How to avoid the "Sunday night blues"

This is so awesome: Sesame Street has a new character

Do you know the Pioneer Woman? She has some super fun new sets of dishes!! (and pitchers, pie dishes, etc)

Lastly, I worked with a lady named Nichole who was recently killed in a car accident, as well as her daughter Brooklyn. The Langley Times wrote a nice article about them. I can't imagine the awful feeling her family is going through.

I'm going to go have a nice long shower, switch the laundry over, and then continue with my laziness before heading to my parents soon. Happy Sunday!

a thing post (finally!)

It's been a while, so I think a thing post is needed! Here are some fun things around the web these days to check out. Enjoy!

Trying to get more protein in my meals (that is not meat-related...)

Did you know that when you buy bras here, they send you a $20 off coupon in your birthday month?! How exciting! Now...what to buy?! 

I reallyyyyy want these Guatemalan Toms. I just don't know if I can justify $75 for them with shipping; so expensive for a casual shoe.... bummer.

Heidi sent me this rainbow veggie pad thai recipe  - I will have to try it!

I bought a Social Shopper coupon for the next Make It Vancouver fair and I'm pretty excited! Amanda & I have gone to 2 of these events now and love them. They feature local vendors! 

My Spanish teacher told me that there is a new Mexican restaurant in Langley: Quesadillas & Chilaquiles. Has anyone heard of it, or been?!

I want to get Chucho this for his next birthday! (and Odie for his)  

And finally, this is what Edwin & I have been checking out lately... more to come!

Last but not least, I will leave you with a photo of Mr. Chucho :)

He doesn't love the snow...
