Back to Normal...

Here is a quote that seemed to resonate with my current chaos. I always have to remember the balance of both family and career and with that said I am looking forward to this weekend to get back on track and to my regular routine!

Clear Sky, Clear Mind

My life has been CRAZY, BUSY as of lately, (like 14 hour work regular mommy, wife life stuff) so my little blog has been pushed to the back burner. Sorry blog...and sorry to all my amazing readers. I will try to get a few posts up this week and back to normal next week.
I feel like the guy with the tin can telephone. No way is everyone getting a chance to speak or be heard :(

The view from my deck this morning made my day and inspired me to get on here and do a quick post. I absolutely love living on the west coast of BC, Canada!

My fashion inspiration when there is not enough time in the day is clean lines and Victoria Beckham's Spring 2013 line meets all the simplistic requirements!
Kisses to you all and hope your having a great week.

Saturday Snapshots

Just a few photo from our sunny Saturday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

My morning smoothie, {spinach, yogurt, strawberries, blueberries}
New bathmat for Hayden from IKEA for only $699 online.
This sandwich was photo worthy with avocado, tomato and cheese done in a frying pan!
Hayden taking his first lady friend for a ride in his Jeep! Eyes on the road boy!
This plant was a gift from my Mother in Law at christmas. It had a poinsettia with it so I removed it after the holidays and re-potted it this purple pot. I can proudly say it is still thriving 2 months later!

Still Spicy!

"What should I wear? The little black Gucci dress, the little black Gucci dress OR the little black Gucci dress?" I fell in love with Victoria Beckham when she was a Spice Girl and I love this sexy, styling Momma now more than ever! She is rocking longer locks now and has a classic style that stands the test of time! Who was your favourite Spice girl? Mine was...and still is, Posh Spice!

My Fav look she wore to her recent runway show at New York Fashion Week!

Pad Thai and a Sweat

We eat a lot of chicken at my house so I am always looking for fun new ways to prepare it. My hubby and I love Pad Thai but don't always have the time, $, luxury know what I go out! The Taste of Thai, Pad Thai for two, makes it easy to enjoy one of our fav dishes at home. We had it last night and can't wait to enjoy it again. Just add your veggies of choice, chicken or shrimp, bean sprouts, egg and enjoy. 

What are you cooking tonight?

Here is the workout I did before hitting the shower this morning. It's great if you don't have time for the gym or cardio equipment of your own or it's just too darn cold to run outside! Who is up for the challenge? Do it while watching The Bachelor or way of not feeling so bad about my guilty reality TV pleasure.

Get your sweat on to feel extra sexy in todays fashion choices!

Kabobs Sans Grill

In an effort to get out of my "winter" cooking habits I wanted to make a dish somewhat reminiscent of summer. So I made kabobs. Now I am not one to brave the cold and fire up the grill so I kept the cooking inside and did them in the oven and the result was fantastic.

~ marinated chicken breast diced cut into cubes
~ onions cut in 1x1 inch squares 
~ mushrooms quartered

I then baked at 375 for about 25 minutes.
I served with rice pilaf and a simple cucumber salad {thin sliced cucumbers tossed in tzatziki}
I covered the wood handles on my skewers with tinfoil to avoid burning.
What do you love to cook in the summer?

Happy Heart Day!

So the hubby and I always say we have never been that into Valentines Day but when I look back we kinda have. I remember our first Valentines Day 9 years ago he made me Lobster dinner, one year he took me to a mountain lodge and another he surprised me with a trip to Cuba! Then last year I was at work in the middle of telling someone that we don't really celebrate and Mike show up with roses, chocolate and gift cards! So I guess we do celebrate it.... this year I made him something which seemed like nothing in comparison to what he did for me! Oh well, it is a girls holiday after all!

The note I found on the kitchen counter in the morning.
A picture of a GUCCI Lanyard he had on order for me that had not yet arrived.
So there you go, I thought that was all and what a sweet man I have. Boy was I wrong. When I arrived at work I found a package on my desk. I was expecting something from my works Head Office and I was excited to open it so I did. He even created a fake shipping slip...I was completely fooled. {These photos have been recreated at home}
 A note with instructions to set up digital picture frame which now sits on my desk was surprise #1! It was full of photos of the two of us and family photos with Hayden.
Balloon and beyond heartfelt card came next! He said he would have married me the first day he saw me ~swoon~
Who is this amazing man....oh wait, he's my husband!
Ok, now things get a little crazy! Two tone grey GUCCI Scarf and GUCCI watch! I'm in love and I haven't even got to my purse yet!
Hunter Boot cleaner, just what I need. The chocolate is gone now but it was there!

Finally two GUCCI lanyards for my phone and keys and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac. I chose the matte and gold and we are returning the patent and silver. I cannot believe after nearly 10 years my man can still pull off a surprise like this and spoil me rotten. I am the luckiest girl and had to share!

Hope you had a great Valentines day!

Grammy Rhianna Lust

I know I am a few days late but I had to share my infatuation with everything about Rhianna at the 55th Grammys this past Sunday. I have always loved her music but she has finally come into her own when it comes to fashion....and becoming a fashion icon. I am in love with her ombre, nails and flawless make up.

What do you think of Rhiannas look? Who topped your Grammy Best Dressed list?
