Surprise, I’m pregnant…and I went to Antarctica

Surprise, I am pregnant! I’m nearly 23 weeks along now and…it’s going. Health-wise, everything has been great so far. I was a little nauseous in the first trimester but I did not let that stop me from going on the most epic voyage of my entire life – to Antarctica! I was supremely fortunate enough … Continue reading

Salad. Yup, I said Salad.

I have been absolutely terrible at updating this blog and I feel super guilty! I’ve started a new job so things are a little nuts for me what with my new commute, and the learning curve at work. I’m still doing social media/web stuff but in an entirely new industry so sometimes I am all: … Continue reading

Gastown Gamble Screening

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to a screening of a new tv show on the Oprah Winfrey Network called “Gastown Gamble“.

How Much Is Too Much

Major lack of updating on my part! Not for lack of content that’s for sure…I have lots to say and have cooked/been cooked/eaten many delicious things over the past few weeks! Working with social media keeps me on my toes. I try very hard to monitor the ebbs and flows – mainly based on how … Continue reading

Would you care for a tiny muffin? This super cute necklace I ordered from etsy arrived the other day! I’ve already worn it a bunch of times. It’s very “me”. The measuring spoons even have amounts written on them! Adorable.

Do you keep a snack drawer at work?

I keep a very…interesting desk at work. I don’t have any pictures hanging or anything (mainly because I am too lazy to actually print them and bring them in) but I’d say you could probably figure me out just by glancing at what’s crammed into my small work area.
