 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  I hope everyone is having a blessed holiday season.  I also hope everyone has given or received something handmade this year.  We aren't celebrating for a few more days - the step kids come back to us for New Years so we'll actuall...

I haven’t talked about this yet on the blog although it has been in the works for quite a while.  For a few years now, I have been considering doing my MBA.  I eventually want to go into business for myself (in the mining engineering world) and felt that an MBA would h...

The first set of measurements was taken May 28, 2018 which was a few days before my Keto start date of June 1, 2018.  The second set of measurements is from November 23, 2018.  I've also included the difference between the two measurements.

I am still going strong on the Keto diet.  I’ve lightened up and been less strict about carbs for the last month or so and I think it is actually helping.  Last time I was home, I had lost almost 5lbs in two weeks.  I thought it was amazing.  I still struggle with brea...

I've decided to add a new item to my shop.  This is a beautiful, frilly vest that I find to be a cute accessory for any outfit.  It adds a bit of warmth, although not a ton, can it can turn a boring outfit into an extraordinary outfit.

I wanted to share a piece of my day because it reminded me of how lucky I am.  I have had obstacles to overcome in life, some of them happening right now.  But I have made a point to take time to count my blessings when I am feeling down.  And sometimes when I am not f...

I found out something very interesting from my husband - since I started on Keto, I've stopped snoring.  I'm a big snorer.  I am so loud, my husband convinced me to see if I have sleep apnea.  Thankfully, it was determined that I do not have it but he has a hard time s...

There is a Mexican restaurant in Calgary that my husband and I have been going to for years.  We don't go very often and after this meal, we are starting to wonder why we don't go more.  It is a bit of a hole in the wall and I've never seen it busy but is has the best...
