a thing post

Hola! I have been sitting in front of my computer thinking about and attempting to choose which photos I wanted to post for a while now. (while eating chocolate covered pretzels, let's be honest...) I've now decided that I have way to many pictures to post and I'll do it another day when I have lots of time to go through them all! Regina and Smithers were such fun adventures and some good family bonding time. My little baby sister lives in Smithers, BC...pretty wild hey?? It's 14 hours North of here, for those of you wondering.

In the meantime, here are some fun things I like around the world wide web:

A super funny Kijiji ad for a roommate in Winnipeg (gotta appreciate his honesty!) 

8 vegetables that regrow (for my future herb/vegetable garden out back)

I think this one is AMAZING: 31 things you can do instead of spending money (such good reminders)

How to be a good dinner guest (I am diggin' #7, I appreciate #15, and I am laughing at #34 & #35!)

I bought some olive oil from Well Seasoned last week and may attempt to make my own basil infused olive oil! Anyone ever tried?!

Edwin sent this to me: 10 things every child of a Latina mother understands (apparently they're quite true!) 

Mmm...this looks delicious. It reminds me of my favorite Indian dish, saag. 

And, I'll leave you with this, the cutest video you may see all day.

Actually, I'll leave you with a picture of the flowers I planted yesterday in front of our house! (shhh...don't tell strata...)

When did August happen?! It feels like time has been flying by lately. There's been a lot going on - our new house, Edwin's parents here, I was in Regina last week, and now headed to Smithers tomorrow! 

Can you believe my baby sister is officially a police officer?? So exciting!!!! I think she is definitely happy to be out of Regina and depot now. She is being placed in Smithers, BC so that's where her, myself, & Pants are headed to tomorrow morning. We are driving up so that she has her vehicle there, and then I'm flying home Monday evening. (And back to work Tuesday....) 

This is just a little 'hello' until I can get some time to post lots of pictures of our adventure to Regina! (Have you ever been? It's a special place... To say the least....!!) 

This is my sister officially sworn into the RCMP: 

Happy summer!!! Oh, and guess what gets to happen soon once this busy-ness is done.... WEDDING PLANNING!!! This is one happy girl currently :)
