A True Story

Michelle "Oh hello Yoga, long time no see"

Yoga "Mhhmmm..."

Michelle "I'm in no mood for formalities so let's dance Yoga" Michelle grabs Yoga and spins Yoga around and Yoga has no idea what just hit.

Yoga "Yikes..."

Michelle "That's right Yoga, I'm back on the floor and I'm leading. Hold on to your dress"

My favourite things on my Christmas tree

Above: (cause I just can't get the words on top!)... An ice cream cone

Coffee and a cupcake

Layer cake

Eggs and Sausage

Gingerbread Man


Technically not on the tree, but Elvis and Prisilla are cute.

Burger and a Cupcake

You can never have too many disco balls

The Christmas Pickle

Every tree needs a fat chick


Hark the Herald Angels Sing...


What the hell is going on here?

Breakfast for the Kids

Add one egg and one cup of the nog to the Bisquick mix

Heat a frying pan to whatever you heat it to- I just wing it. Add butter (always, this should be an unspoken rule- butter to everything)

When the edges start to bubble add your peanut buttercups. Flip- forgot that photo (I can't remember everything!)

Take the bacon out of the oven (again, should be included in every meal)

Start the eggs. Crack 2 eggs for every small person, 3 for every large person. Add some cream and salt. Whisk. Add butter to the hot pan and pour in the eggs.

You must continually move the eggs around so they don't get too dry.
Dry scrambled eggs suck.

When they look like this they're done.

Put it all together on one plate and yell 6 times that breakfast is ready. Or until someone opens a door and says "What?"

The End

Vancouver 2009 Part II

Oopsy, I forgot the meat. We went to Memphis Blues and had the Feast. Behold. Every form of BBQ known to man, with a side of beans, slaw, potato salad, fries, cornbread and more sauce. Just order the Feast. This is how it comes.
Enough for 4- 6 people or just you and a friend.

Vancouver 2009

Cupcakes on Denman

Store pretty- cupcakes dry (Everytime I have ever tried them)

Giraffes everywhere

These look like giraffes- they're actually the things that lift containers off of cargo ships. And did you know that only about 2% of all containers are checked by customs? Good odds if you want to smuggle in some giraffes.

December on the West Coast

Oh, how did this end up here? Macaroons from Meinhardt's


The Sails at Canada Place

Clouds- soon to be gone

Gastown bakery

The Water St. Cafe- where the cast and crew of the Twilight filmings were nightly

The Famous Gastown Steam Clock

That weird building in Gastown

Michelle's, on top of a soon to be Starbucks

Lunch at
Salt Tasting Room

Cambozola Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Mister- hold the cream while I take the picture

Breakfast at the greasiest of Greasy Diners

I enjoy Me a Fat Burger

Sunset at English Bay- I love the tree on top of this building. Someone should light it up for Christmas.

As we were leaving Mister noticed this little pumpkin sitting on a trash can. I didn't touch it, just took the shot. Cute.

HUGE Laughing Sculpture

Must be a guy thing...

That's all. Hang loose.
