in a few short days...

... we are celebrating the little man's BIG ONE.

i'm also going back to work very shortly after.

so instead of spending my time blogging, i'm going to bed and cuddle my sweet smelling baby while he's at the age where cuddles and kisses are the most precious gifts you can give.

ready to send

i was thinking of shopping for the perfect postcards to send for my very first Postcrossing project when I realized that a number of years ago, I purchased a slew of cards on a weekend trip to Victoria, BC. being a vancouverite means "Thinking Green" so i decided that because the postcards are just sitting pretty in a little box in my closet, that i would rather send those cards to my recipients in China, Finland, Germany, USA & Poland because they would most likely appreciate it better than i would!

in my excitement for this project, all five cards have been addressed and each contains a personal note from me. now off i go to the postal office on monday to personally send each of my cards out!

I have always had a love of writing letters. When a friend of mine mentioned Postcrossing, I knew my love was rekindled as I read what it was about. I had to sign up right away and be part of the group!

I am also so very excited to receive my very first postcard project (more like 5 cards to send!)! I am going to hunt for the perfect cards to send out and hopefully, the people who are going to receive it will be able to learn a little about me and my piece of the world.

Meet Lucy!

She's our (or should I say Daddy & Dylan's) new pet, a dwarf hamster!

Though I'm not such a big fan, I've got to say that she's kind of cute.

Oh well, she makes for a great photo subject so head on over here :)

a night out

on the cold evening of Jan. 15th, the hubby and i decided to take the little man out to stanley park for a quick drive. we made a quick stop to take a couple of pictures in commemoration of the upcoming winter olympics here in vancouver!

the olympic rings overlooking the sails of the vancouver convention centre

dylan and daddy braving the cold to get a snapshot!

i wish i could've taken more photos but we weren't really dressed for the occassion (it truly was a cold night out by the water!)

a very belated happy birthday

this posting is VERY VERY late.

nontheless, this was the hubby's uber late birthday celebration!

goodbye palm,

Hello Bold 9700!!!

After much peer pressure from the hubby to get an iPhone considering that he, along with all our friends have it, I am so glad I did not succumb to it because I heart my new phone!!!

Date Night

the hubby and i stepped out tonight for some much needed 'adult time'. for the first time in months, a much needed date night was spent in the dark recesses of the theatre watching Avatar.

i'm joining the massive train where everyone seems to have loaded themselves into (the bandwagon is just too small) by saying that i truly loved the movie!!!

if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, make sure to pay the extra moolah to see the 3D version. it truly is worth it.

The other day, we could not resist handing over half a delicious mini-cream-puff-├Ęclaire over to the little man.

Curiousity gets a hold of him as he tries to figure out the feel and taste of new food

Such bliss after finishing half of his uber decadent ├Ęclaire

The end result --- a bath to wash off the grubby little hands and chocolate filled face.


This certain post certainly needs to be blogged about.

After 2 weeks of impatience and driving me insane, the hubby's much coveted item of the year (or should I say last year?) has finally arrived.

Thank goodness his new 3GS is here (it actually arrived on the 4th). I don't think I could've stood another day of the whining.

two days late but nontheless...

I hope that 2010 brings all of you prosperity, love and your true heart's desire. For me? I wish for 2010 to be just as exciting, challenging and rewarding as 2009 was.
