I said yes.....

well hello.....excuse me if the spelling is bad, but im updating from my phone in the hotel!

Today we slept in and went down for a lovely breakfast and then got ready to go and headed from our hotl down to the waterfront. we walked to the olympic park and then back up to the pier....then we stopped for a lovely peppermint twist mocha at starbucks!

we continued on down the waterfront and decided to go to the aquarium.....we got a pic of nemo and dorie! then we went for a beer and grabbed a bus back to our hotel.

We got ready for our dinner and got a cab to take us to Cafe Campagne. we had an amazing three course dinner with lovely wine pairings and a lovely chocolate Digestif. Chris wanted to go for another walk.....so we headed down to the park, once there he looked me ddep in the eyes and told me how much he loved me....then he dropped to one knee and produced the lovely mahogany ring box....he asked me if i would make him the happiest man on earth and be his wife.

you know me.....i giggled and said yes.....he wanted to know what was so funny.....i siad the romantic view of the........FREEWAY.

yup you got it....we looked out onto the ocean and mountains.....and just below was the romantic freeway! he went to one knee again and slid the ring on my finger and asked if i would be his wife!

enogh blogging....im going to go hang out with my fiance!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

WOAH........its been awhile.

Its howdy doody time….its howdy doo….wait?  

what was I talking about? Oh yeah….
Its update time….I know my three loyal followers are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth and I kind of feel like I have.
Okay lets go back in the history books and see where our intrepid hero was when we last spoke with her….
HOLY F^&*)^!!!!!   I was leaving for Europe….has it really been almost a year!!!!!!!!!

Man I am going to have to break this one up….so here is what I will do.   I will write a general update and go back and review my pics and journals and then I will write a series of three posts.   One for Italy, one for France and a final one  for London and my overall feelings about the trip.

I guess for your hard core fans you have seen the pics on facebook and heard the stories around the watercooler, but for those of you who aren’t in the know….I will tell you all the gritty details.   Tales of the most disastrous travel day of my life….the most amazing meal I ever ate….the pickp…
