Kristy passed!!!!!

Kristy took her driving test today…and passed!!!!!!
She only has one more road test to take and then will have her full licence, but I think the rules state, she has to wait a full year before she can take her last test.
The test she took today was a road test, the next one will be on the highway.

Then it was time to celebrate :)






















Anytime we want to celebrate something, we usually celebrate with some ice-cream.
Kristy celebrated with Heather when Heather passed her last driving test, so Heather got to celebrate with Kristy :)
Now don't those look delicious :)
Did you celebrate anything today?

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

Some Goals Met…others, not so much

I thought I should post my end of July calendar from my Fauxbonichi before the month gets away from me.
I am so happy with the steps I did this month :)
I gave myself 2 hearts on the days that I walked over 20,000 steps…why, because I deserved it, teehee.
I am happy with my pop (soda) intake for the month as well.
I also was able to squeeze in 3 books this month…go me!!!

But for the layouts, smash book pages, mailing out happy mail and organizing, really took a nose dive, lol.
I was creative all month…but it was all wedding related.

Now onto Augusts pages in my Fauxbonichi.
I have picked orange for Augusts pages.
The reason…August is usually our hottest month, and orange is the colour of the sun.
But you would never know it was our hottest month today.
It felt like a cool fall day.
The high was 14 C/57 F…..crazy…I had on 2 jackets sitting on the deck at camp.

I hope you all had a very creative and warmer day than I did :)

Hiking in between the rain

Keeping hydrated during my walk/hike today.
Mind you it was short livd

Mind you I didn't get as long as a walk as the sky was dark and looked like rain was coming…which it did.

I see we have a friendly wolf on my trail.
At least I hope it is friendly and not like the one I just read about that was chasing down a cyclist just outside of town.
This looks like she/he is a big one though.

Isn't this just a perfect area for walking?!

















I love walking this trail as the view is beautiful and the pathway is a bit of a challenge with the hills and walking in the sandy parts.


But what I most love is walking the trails….mind you this one is pretty open as a vehicle can drive through it.


















As beautiful as this day has been, we did get quite a bit of rain….see the puddles I am dodging :)

Sharon and I got a lot of crafting in today….I will share that tomorrow.

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

Crafting at camp

My SIL Sharon and her husband Jim are up at camp with us this long weekend :)
Besides me going for my morning and evening walks, Sharon and I have crafted most of the day.
We have been working on Pocket Letters….I did make a Thank You card for the couple that invited us for cake last weekend….but forgot to take a picture of it.
Wayne and Jim went for a couple of very long quad rides…in-between the rain.

Today is Jim's birthday, so Sharon brought up a yummy cake.
We invited my FIL and his wife over and we all enjoyed a pieced of Jim's Birthday cake…yum.

It has been an odd long weekend for Wayne and I.
Usually my dad, step mom, my baby brother and his family come up to the cottage for the August Long.
But with Ashley and Tyler's wedding coming soon, they are of course going to come up for that instead.
Also it is just the 4 of us this weekend.
Ashley and Tyler decided to stay home with their new puppy. 
They want him to get used to his surroundings first before bringing him out here.
Kristy and Blake had a wedding to attend to.
And Heather figured it wouldn't be as fun hanging with the old people as it would be hanging with her sisters this weekend, so she stayed home, lol.

We are still enjoying ourselves….just a bit (a lot) quieter this weekend.

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend…if you are celebrating it.
And I hope you all had a very creative day :)

A new puppy :)

Look at this cutie.

















No WE didn't get a puppy…but my daughter Ashley and her fiancĂ© Tyler did.
They named him Oscar.
This little guy is such a little bitter….he loves to bite, especially my skin.
I am sure Ashley will nip that in the bud though.
Yes Ashley still has her adorable Sebastian whom she loves sooooo much.





















Onto My Day:
I spent a lot of the day on the phone.
My friend Lynne came in for a visit.
I cut all of the pages for the guest book for Ashley and Tyler's wedding.
I was going to bind it with my bind it all, but I don't think that my binding coils are going to be large enough.
She is going to put Intax photos in there so I need about 2" coils.
Also my bigger coils are all in black….I need white.
So I went to 2 copy/binding stores, but they either didn't have the bigger size or the correct colour.
I did try our local book binding store, but the close at 1:00….who closes at 1.00 in the afternoon???? They do, lol.
So I will check back tomorrow and see if they can help me out.

I hope you all had a very creative Day today :)

Girls night out.

Tonight a couple of friends and I celebrated my BDay :)
Whenever it is one of our birthday's we go out to dinner and a movie…..Birthday Girls choice.
I have been doing very well with my healthy eating, so tonight it was Chinese Food..yum.
Then we went to the movie Trainwreck.























It was pretty funny.
Raunchy for some, but I thought it was pretty funny :)
I enjoyed a nice evening out and the day was spent with Karen shoe shopping.
I was so happy that I found a really nice pair of shoes to wear with my dress for the wedding :)

I hope you had a creative day :)

More wedding prep.

More wedding preparations :)
I was at Ashleys most of the day and evening yesterday working on wedding preparations.
I totally completed the all of the bridal bouquets :)
I also did quality control on all of the wooden centrepieces.
I had completed the centrepieces quite a while ago, but I wanted to check them over to make sure everything was 100%
Then when Ashley came home from work, we worked on adding the moss, greenery and they flowers to the centrepieces.
We just added one of the table numbers we had made earlier to see the length of stick we needed.
Not sure why we picked table number 11 though, teehee.

I hope you all had a very creative Day…..tomorrow I am hoping to work on the Guest book
