I Love Spring.....

.....I just wish there was more than a month of it in Alberta.  I heard it was snowing in Calgary today but luckily I'm up around Fort McKay where it's sunny and dusty.  Really though, the snow needs to go. 

It's a little late but I hope you all had a good Easter/Whatever-You-Celebrate/Long Weekend.  We had a house full of soon to be in-laws so things were busy and I just didn't feel the need to blog.  I did take some pictures for a recap.

First some Alberta sky from our long 8 hour drive home.


Next is just an example of some of the crazy shit hauled on Hwy 63.
This is not the largest we've seen.  We'll take the ditch no problem.
Oh and this is my happy face for all those wonderful drivers on the road.

When we arrived home I had a prezzie waiting for me!!!!

A big jiggity big Thank you to Sandra from Absolutely Narcissism. This totally made me smile and Kidlet was all over it like a dirty shirt. We particularly enjoyed the smelly pencils (Cotton Candy?! Fuck YEAH!). She's a hilarious blogger and she's kind too.  Plus she has rock hard abs apparently. 

One other that was waiting for me was a hairy beast ready for some snuggles.
ffft of course I was talking about the dog.
   
Thursday was a whirlwind of massage, chiro, ritualistic pub lunch, and grocery shopping.  Then I was left alone to prep dinner for Kagey.


Lemon Pepper Zucchini,  Rosemary Ranch Chicken, and Hawaiian Chicken.

Striploin with Soy based Marinade
It was wicked to treat her to one of our home made dinners.  Plus she brought beer & wine.  #WINNING (sorry for the Sheen quote but I had to..don't hate). 
Also we've texted since then so it's safe to assume she did not end up in the hospital with salmonella. *whew*


Friday the guests arrived but luckily unfortunately I had a hair appointment just after their arrival.  


Then I also had Snaggletooth pick me up right after I was done.  Don't get me wrong, Manfriend's family is great it's just I wanted a little 'Me' time and some unwinding with my bestie.  Also I didn't have to cook dinner or lift a finger.  Total Win-Win!  I have to give Manfriend props as he took the dog for a walk and brought me a home made burger, BlueBerry Vodka Soda, and Green Apple Freezie.  Ok the last item was from Kidlet but how lucky am I?!  That's what a great Friday is made out of.


Since everyone was leaving on Friday we did Easter dinner on Saturday. 


First I have to look the part.







This wicked apron is from Sassy Apron .  BEST APRONS EVER!  I know to some that's an odd thing to say but you know what?  I love cooking and I like to look damn cute while I'm dong it.  Oh yeah, we're bringing the Apron back!


In case you cared, dinner turned out awesome and it was the first Easter dinner I've cooked.  Also it was the first time I cooked for his family.  No one died. SUCCESS. 


So back to being vain and selfish...I got my nails done and she did a wicked job. 


I'm sure you guys out there prolly couldn't give a rats arse but hey, I get to strut my stuff once in awhile especially after I dropped about $200 in hair in nails which actually is very cheap I'll have you know.


Sunday was filled with tunes blaring from the truck, beers in our hands, and cleaning up the yard.  I. Love. Spring. 


I also love having minions.
Annnnd I kinda love this guy. Sorta.




Next weekend is going to be AWE-some because I get to play in the dirt and put pretty things in the ground.  Yes I know it's simple but I live for these things.  Especially when I spend 10 days straight living here:

 I want some pretty flowers when I'm home. I just want to look at any colour other than brown before I burn my corneas with my straightener.


One last thing I wanted to share for you hockey fans out there.  
"Official Hab-Nots Multi-Purpose Tissue & Gold Club Wipes"

 Did I mention my Manager is French?

  4. You've been crazy busy, but it sounded like you were having lots of fun :)

    Yup .. it snowed here in Calgary .. started with the light, small flakes and then turned into those clumpy, big gobs that feel like you were hit with a water balloon in the face .. best part though was that it was melting as fast as it fell :) Can't wait for the next one & we Calgarians all know we will surely get a few more jolts of the white crap (GRRRR :#)

    Awesome pictures!!

    p.s. Nice Nails (cool design)!!

  6. 1) Oh my GAWD - could you be any more adorable?

    2) We get precisely four minutes of spring and eight minutes of fall in Minnesota. A couple weeks of summer and then 11.5 months of winter.

    3.) Presents rock. Any day that there is something in the mailbox that doesn't say 'amount due' is, in Charlie Sheen's legendary word...WINNING!

  7. Thanks everyone!

    Drake - I will wear my chocolate and pink polka dotted one to make you feel more at ease, if you came for dinner.

    Tricia - Spring doesn't last very long in Alberta but where I grew up on Vancouver Island it was pretty awesome besides all the rain. Lots of purdy flowers though.

    Oh and I could be MORE adorbes ..just for you. *wink*

  8. Those kabobs look amazing. And I think the apron looks good. It's a lot better than one of those tacky aprons that makes fat uncle Hank look like he's a thin, big-breasted woman wearing a bikini. Ugh.

  10. I love that apron! It sounds like you've been busy and I do hope you get to plant this weekend. You asked about a sub for Rotel. Any tomato flavored with chilies is great. Just make sure you get the "heat" you are looking for. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
