52 Week Challenge - Week 34

This week's theme was "defeat".

I've never really dieted before... if i've needed to lose a bit of weight I just stepped up my exercise routine.  I'm finding that in the last year though i've been gaining a few pounds after every vacation and then don't lose it again...let's just say that three vacations later, i'm about 12 pounds heavier than I want to be.  I've decided to cut back on what I eat but with all the fun summer parties, etc it has been hard to resist all the yummy temptations and i've already been defeated (maybe i'll try again when summer is over :)).

It's so hard to resist yummy things like this summer berry cheesecake that I made...at least I brought it over to my parent's place to share.  :)



If you would like to play along, next week's theme is "Sunset"

52 Week Challenge - Week 33

This week's theme was "Peace".    My husband and I just got back from a nice romantic weekend to the 1000 islands area on the U.S. side of the St.Lawrence river.  We had such an nice, relaxing and peaceful time.


On Saturday, we went to the 1000 islands winery and the sky was amazing.  We sat under a tree enjoying the beautiful scenery and drinking a wine slushy...delicious!  It was so nice to enjoy the peace and quiet

52 Week Challenge - Week 32

This week's theme was "Shadow".  We've had practically no rain this summer except this past week so finding shadows was a real challenge!  This morning we actually had some sun so I ran outside to my backyard and thought I would get my shadow in my favourite part of the yard.  A few years ago we got some new landscaping which included a walkway that curves down the side of our house....I love it!  As usual, Buddy was curious as to what I was doing so ended up in the photo, I think it's cute how he's looking at me (he's probably thinking "oh no, that crazy lady has that thing in front of her face again :)).

52 Week Challenge - Week 31

This week's theme was "water".  My daughter and I just got back from a wonderful vacation in Toronto spending time with her Godmother.

One day we went to Canada's Wonderland (a really fun amusement park) and had a blast on all the roller coasters.  One of the rides we went on was called White Water Canyon in which you go on a boat thru rapids and we ended up getting soaked...I thought a picture would be perfect for my theme but i'm not sure the other girls were thrilled about it.  :)



here's another one from the park that I snapped just before we left.  Check out part of the roller coaster in the background...this is just one small part of a huge, terrifying ride called Leviathan.  I ended up going on the coaster and had a blast (though I thought we were going to die when going up the thing :))
