Reese & Waylon

We have been getting quite a bit of snow here lately (finally) and these two absolutely love playing in it. Reese, who won't go outside when it's raining, never even wants to come inside now. I love when their little faces get covered in snow like they have a snow bread.

These photo are all taken with our new 50mm lens which takes pretty awesome pictures but I am missing our old lens. This one has no zoom and you have to focus it yourself, which make it very had to take pictures of moving things, like dogs. When you do get a good shot though it is great and crystal clear, I just need a lot more practice.

How was your Christmas? Mine was very busy but very nice. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'm heading out to go snowboarding for the first time this season :)
Happy Sunday!

DIY Cat Urine Odour Remover

I have the most amazing thing to share with you guys. Ok so maybe not that amazing to most of you, but to those who have cats and especially those who have cats that have ever peed on anything this is the best thing you'll ever read.
My cousin and her cat Hazel have living here for a few months now and all of a sudden Hazel has decided that every now and then she's going to pee on my couch. For those of you that have cats you know that the small of cat pee is the hardest odor to remove from anything. I tried everything to get rid of the smell, using the little green machine, spraying it with cleaner, febreze, I even washed all the covers to the cushions in the washing machine and still you could smell it. So I started looking up home remedies online and reading forums from others with the same problem and I found this. This amazing miracle working solution. I sprayed this on the couch and once it dried the smell was totally gone! Gone! and this is all it is.

16oz Hydrogen Peroxide
1 Teaspoon Dish Soap
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda

Mix together and soak area, using a spray bottle works best. 
And it's gone, just like that.

Mind Over Matter

Today I woke up not feeling very well at all and I have a long day ahead me. I'm trying to stay positive and not let this sickly feeling get the best of me. I find the more I dwell on the fact that I'm not feeling good the worse I seem to feel. That's why this quote seemed perfect for today. Not that I can think my illness away completely but I can make it bearable but not letting it consume me. That and lots of tea.
What do you do to feeling better when you're under the weather? I would love to hear suggestions from you.

12 Days Till Christmas

The count down is on! There's only 12 days left till Christmas. That's less then two weeks people!!! Where did all the time go? I just started my Christmas shopping yesterday :s I am almost done though :) I like Christmas shopping and I didn't get to really enjoy it this year. I've been so busy and have also been working like crazy. I'm starting to slow down to enjoy the season now before it's gone. We have a Christmas dinner/party with friends this Saturday and I'm really looking forward to it.
Are you done all you're shopping? Have you been to any Christmas parties this year?

Update on Life Lately

I can't believe it's been a whole week already since my last post. It's been pretty crazy around here this past week. Here's a little updated on my life lately.

My bridesmaids through me a surprise shower on Sunday. It was my very first surprise party and boy was it a surprise. It's strange walking into a party you had no clue about. It was so much fun, they did an amazing job. I have the best friends :)

On Thursday my fiance and I got "legally" married. It was just very small because our actually wedding will be in the Dominican in January. We chose to get married here first so that we don't have to change everything over when we get back, it's a lot easier this way.
Sorry this picture isn't that great but it was the best one I had :$

So that's what has been happening around here. I think most of our wedding prep is now done and I can finally start Christmas shopping!! Yay!!!

What have you been up to lately?

Ornament Swap

Early in November I signed up for an ornament swap. I LOVE christmas ornament and I thought, how fun would it be to get one that's a total surprise in the mail. Well today is the day we show off all of the lovely ornaments we receive from each other. Here is mine!

Is this not the cutest!? My swap partner was Christina . Well I guess I shouldn't say partner as we didn't swap with each other, we all had different people. She did a great job picking something that was "me" I really love this little guy.

Happy Saturday!!

Sponsor Spotlight Part One

It is that time again!! Time to meet some of the lovely ladies that have been hanging out on my sidebar this month. 

Hey! I'm Katie, and I blog over at Loverly She.  It started a few months ago as a style/DIY blog, but is quickly evolving into something a bit more diverse. I guess you could call it a life & style blog, and it features lots of outfits, thrifty tips, makeup reviews, and the odd song, poem, or random bit of personal rambling that I have written.  I have a bunch of absolutely lovely (and stylish) friends who make regular appearances on there as well.  My friends and family are such a huge part of who I am, so I figured it made sense to incorporate them into my blog as much as possible, especially as some of them are very talented artists who I love to prodigiously show off  :)

Hi I am Ashley from Life As I Know It! I enjoy blogging about my crazy Canadian life with 2 Golden Retrievers and 3 cats, as well as trying various DIY projects!! Feel free to follow along this crazy journey of mine called LIFE!!! I love finding new blogs and followers!!

Hi friends! My name is Emily and I’m a lifestyle blogger at Newlywed Moments. You guessed it, this year I got married! So I write about everything from romance to recipes to real life. Other random facts about me: (1) I love Jesus. (2) I hate coffee but I’m still addicted to Starbucks. (3) I’m from the northeast but secretly wish I lived in the south. I’d love to get to know ya’ll better – thank you so much to Christine for having me on your blog this month!

 Hi all!  This is Betsy from Musings of a Museum FanaticChristine has been awesome enough to let me hang out this month!  As you can tell from my name I love museums ... I'm hoping to find a job at one but that's another story for a longer post : )  This Museum Fanatic is not just a one note gal though I enjoy so many different things and love to talk to you guys about them!  In addition to loving museums I'm also addicted to Pampered Chef, so much so I became a consultant.  Please check out my Facebook business page as well.  I'm working on putting up the current specials (which are amazing!!!) and posting recipes a few times a week for you.

Do you try a new craft every year or maybe do the same one every year?
