Miranda Lambert concert…

On the last Saturday of the Calgary Stampede, I got to go to the Miranda Lambert concert!!

Or so I thought.

I bought the tickets thinking Miranda was the headliner.

Not so much.

Apparently, she was the opening act with Jason Aldean as the headliner.

I was a little upset to say the least, and my friends got a good laugh.

Oh, well! It was still a great concert!!



My Thoughts


So, being that the end of January is, well, today…I thought I’d update you on the state of  my resolutions.

1) Marathon…

I got my treadmill about the 2nd week of January and have loved it ever since. It’s still up for debate if it returns the love.

I’ve followed a plan from a website that my friend Jenn sent me….I really like it, it’s something to help guide me and it doesn’t ask too much of me too quickly. It starts you out running one minute, walking one minute and alternating days with just walking, each for 30 min. Week 2 starts out the same, but then they expect you to be able to run 4 minutes/walk 1 minute by the end of the week…not really there yet.

I’m up to running 3 minutes….and plan to keep that up for this upcoming week. I’m happy with week by week adding a minute. There is no hurry and I’d rather work at my pace than get discouraged and quit…am enjoying the nap time workouts and look forward to them(ok, that’s a white lie…I don’t ALWAYS look forward to it…).

2) Mountain Climb…

Ok this one hasn’t really been on the forefront. Although, working out is working toward this goal and my friend Heidi has suggested a great mountain to climb…what was the name of it again? And this goal is one that is weather dependant…go away snow!

3)Driving standard…

Yah…nothing here either…still trying to talk the husband into loaning me his truck…ok..that’s not true, he’s offered but we haven’t got around to it yet…maybe during calving season…when we have loads of time…bahahaha!

4) Still haven’t eaten at McDonalds…and not missing it one bit!

5) Opened my very own TFSA!!! For those of you who don’t know what that is…time to book an apointment with your bank and find out!!

6) Budget…well…I made one…and now am well aware that I have overspent in several areas…oh well, there is always next month!

7) Inviting people over for dinner…opps…mental note…invite people over for dinner.

Little Miss Marathon

Sooooo…my friend H pointed out something…

Apparently, when I said marathon in my resolutions, I was committing to one of those YOU HAVE GOT TO BE CRAZY 41km type things….

Ummmm…I retract my resolution…or rather modify it a titch…

A 5km run was more along what I was thinking…or 10km… I feel better…happy now H?!

Fashion & Beauty · Home Sweet Home

Oh my…

Am I allowed this on my New Year’s resolution budget?!? I doubt it!

I have 2 very wonderful, ambitious, beautiful and fun girlfriends who run their own businesses….the ottoman above is from Mink and Manure… a business that I started with my girl Jenn several years ago and due to babies, the farm, work and all that jazz, she now is flying solo and is rocking it! Jenn is out there in the world making it  more fun and beautiful one party at a time (check out her site for details…it’s a home party concept AND she has a store in Irricana, AB). I still LOVE the name of the company…it’s hysterical and has gotten a lot of attention over the years!

The other fantastic friend is Jenny…she owns Cowgirl Bling…and the company runs with the same concept…shop in the comfort of your own home WITH your friends…how fun is that!

It is a little dangerous that I have these see, they have GREAT taste and I love all their stuff…hard to resist!!
