An Update...

Well I just spent the last 45 mintues writing a new post and I went to view it, and somehow I ended up deleting it. I am not a very happy girl at the moment. Let's try this again... well today I am off work which is great. Brad and I went to the YMCA this morning at 9:00 and got home at 10:00. I enjoy working out in the morning as you get it over with and feel "in shape." I threw a roast into the slowcooker, after my 25 minute shower. It is so nice to have the time to just stand under a hot shower. (and to have the house to myself.. hehe I still love you though Brad! ) Now all I can smell is garlic, barbeque sauce and steakspice permiating the entire house. It is making me really hungry. I have to say that slowcookers are a wonderful invention. We got one as a wedding gift, and only used it for the first time a couple of months ago.

Anyways... right now were in the process of deciding whether or not to buy and renovate a new home. My mom and dad own a number of property's and one of them just came up for us to potentially buy. It is an older, brick, character home. It is located only 3 or 4 blocks from where we are now. It has 3 bedrooms and only 1 bathroom. If we did buy it we would want to gut the kitchen and redo it and add another bathroom. We also would want to keep the house we have now and rent it out. In our current home we have fixed up the upstairs and our basement is still unfinsihed. We have been trying to decide if it is worth fixing up the basement, or if we should just buy this new one. Hopefully in the next few weeks will have made a decision. Here are some pictures of our house currently. I wish I had some more before pictures... O well!

It's Time...

Well I know it is definitely time for a new post. I feel as though the day's keep going faster and faster. In the last couple of weeks since I last wrote so much has transpired. You know when you mean to write and something else keeps coming up?? Well that is how the last 2 weeks have been for me. Today I was off work; which enabled me to go to church. Whohoo!!! I usually work Sunday's so it is always a treat to be able to go with Brad. I finally built up enough courage to ask for a couple Sunday's off a month. To my surprize they said they would do the best they could do make it possible. So far I have been getting every other Sunday off; which has been an answer to prayer. Here are a few pictures of the last few weeks:

This is Becky, Sam, Purdy and Melody: I went to elementary school with all of these girls. Last weekend Purdy and Melody came down from Alberta . I had the chance to reconnect with them again after 5 years of not seeing them. We had a great time, it is so fun to see old friends!
This is Heather and I. A few weekends ago Brad and I went to their house in Swift Current,Sk for the weekend and we had an awesome time. They were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. The food was sooo good! Thanks again guys!

This is my best friend Kandis Biette and her little girl Kyra Star. She lives in Regina, Sk. It was Kandis's birthday on March 2. Her husband had a surprise party for her on Satrurday.
