I have been tagged by three lovely designers, Tanya of xoxotava & Lesa of Isabel Inspired Designs and Holly of Peyton's Place Boutique. Love you gals!

I have to share 7 random and weird facts about myself.
1. I met my hubby while we were both teaching ESL in South Korea.
2. I have vertigo. I can't even drive on those high curving overpasses without having a mini panic attack.
3. I was attacked by fire ants once while I was backpacking thru Thailand. All I can say is "Ouch!".
4. I'm allergic to bee stings (I guess I have something with insects, lol)
5. I love seafood!
6. One of the most intriguing movies I have ever watched is "Waking Life" even though I have never once made it thru the whole movie without falling asleep thru part of it. You have to really put your thinking cap on for this movie. All that thinking really tires me out!
7. One of my least favorite movies is Titanic. How many times does Leo really need to go back on the ship!

Ok I now have to tag 7 others! And the lucky winners are....
1. Cinnamon Girl Studio
2. My Little Fairytales
3. Ollie Girl
4. The Vintage Pearl
5. Blowin Bubbles Boutique
6. Gock's Frocks

I wish I was tall and statuesque

So that I could wear this beautiful necklace:

But being that I am only 5'1" (and a half!)....just don't think I could carry it off. But for all of you women lucky enough to be over 5'5" you can find this gorgeous piece on etsy here. I just love this piece!

The fruits of our labour

Greg & I decided that a backyard ice rink was a must to get us thru this winter. What we didn't realize was how much work it would be! We started at Christmas and it took us 2 weeks to get it skateable. Then every melt the surface must be recoated and every snow lots of shovelling! It's all worth it though when we lace on Reilly's skates and he hits the rink. You've never seen more glee!
