Good evening!

I have been having one hectic weekend! Between working, trying to get food on the table, spending time with my boyfriend and time with Jake of course, there hasn't been much time for me. It's nice to have some peace and quiet and turn the world off and tune into my blog. :)

I am really excited for tomorrow. I get to spend some time at church with my boyfriend and his wonderful grand parents that I've just recently met. Then I have work, and a girlfriend get together for Mary Kay tomorrow night! So excited to have some girl time and dive into some of the NEW summer products!

It's been a busy weekend so hopefully I can find some time this coming week to make some delicious food and share all the great things I come up with with you all!

Off to bed I go, it's about 3 hours past my bedtime ;)

A Summer Night Barbeque

Hi you all!

I am just loving taking pictures of things I have been doing, all I can say is- mom I understand! :) This is what I made for dinner tonight! I marinated chicken in lemon garlic and some lemon pepper herbs. Skewered them up with peppers, onions and tomatoes and threw them on the grill! It was awesome! Served with rice, and some grilled zucchinni. It was delicious! My roommates and I have kind of made our own little family here and had our usual family dinner this evening.

This is me with my best friend Mackenzie. She had the brilliant idea of roasting marshmallows over the barbeque to make smore's, one of my personal favorites! Overall it was a great evening filled with great, food, great company and of course my pup Jake! I couldn't bare to leave him out of the smore's so I let him in on it! Graham crackers and a toasted marshmallow... but just one! ;) My mom taught me right... doggies deserved to be spoiled and treated too!

Here he is! My pup Jake who brings so much joy and love to my life every day. Sending you all bunches of love! Enjoy the summer months and all the great fun it brings!

My Way to Beautiful

I am so excited! I am at my mom's and after hearing about all her blogs, the friends she's made, and the fun she has had I have decided to join the blogging world!

Here I am a couple summers ago on a ferry to Bainbridge Island for my brothers wedding. It's a special memory for me, I thought this would be a great place to start.

My favorite thing to do would be cook. I love being creative with new recipes and and new types of ingredients. I also really love spending time with my dog, Jake. He is on my header when he was only 14 weeks old, now he is just over a year old. I love to get out and run, and enjoy the outdoors. I'm crazy about hockey, GO CANUCKS!

I recently moved back to my hometown and started up my own business with Mary Kay. I've always loved makeup, beauty and fashion. I plan to go to school in the fall for hair. My dream is to one day own my own hair salon and have my Mary Kay business on the side to enhance, empower and make woman feel beautiful!

I have a whole long list of things I love, my faith, my family, my boyfriend, my dog, and my friends. I welcome you to follow me through this journey!

My next post is going to be a recipe on whatever I conjure up for dinner tonight!

Please feel free to tell me about yourself! Look forward to blogging with you!
