july giveaway- win a tiny cub card set!

As promised, today is giveaway day... hooray! The loot this time will be a set of four cards from Tiny Cub... yes, you read correctly, you will get all four (as seen in the pic above). How sweet it would be to send your thoughts and affections with these babies.

Enter to win by posting a comment telling me one reason you are celebrating... perhaps you just landed that corner office job and get to wear a power suit (shoulder pads are back right? heehee), or maybe you took the stairs today instead of the elevator and know you are working those skinny jeans, or maybe that special someone from across the room looked your way and smiled (like, full on smiled, and it was totally directed to Y-O-U!). Anyways, I am sure you all have lots of reasons to celebrate, so post your comment and you could be the winner!

A random draw will be made next Friday (August 5th), so check back to see if you win. Please remember to include some sort of contact info (etsy shop, blog, website, or e.mail address) and please only one entry per person. Good luck!

montreal and back

Hello!.. long time, no post, I know... very bad of me. Where have we been?... we just got back from a short trip to Montreal where we went to a lovely family wedding. A week leading up to the trip, I kept having nightmares of baby meltdowns on the plane and passengers giving us stink eye, but alas, all for naught... the 5 hour flights went surprisingly well. Amazing how an airline plastic cup and swizzle stick can provide hours of entertainment.... they even outshone the TV on the headrest!? Anyways, looking back at all our pictures... I realize there are very little of Montreal, and tons of wedding stuff and family events (which I don't really want to bore you with)... so please excuse my lack of travel photos!

Oh yes, I should mention... a fun giveaway this month is still happening! Will be posting it up this Thursday!

when animals attack

Recently we went for a nice summer stroll at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary on Westham Island. Upon our stroll we started to see warning signs letting us know that there were cranes in the area... well lucky us, we got a close encounter. Here is the crane family with their little (well, pretty big, if you ask me) baby. All I could think as I snapped the pics were random clips of that darn tv show "When Animals Attack" (I think that was what it was called?). I was quite a distance away (hooray for zoom lenses), so there was no threat of losing an eye... nevertheless, they still kind of freaked me out.

cake attack

Lesson learned over the weekend... never try to eat a scrumptious little cheesecake in front of a wee one wielding a fork. I have never seen Jasper look so ravenous! BTW, the petite cheesecake was scrumptious... and it was so pretty decorated with little candy pearls (we devoured this at Trafiq Cafe & Bakery on Main Street). I am now wishing I got a box to take away...
