A little update and a new shop!

Well lots of changes in the Wasney household lately.  Both Chris and I are at new jobs and very very happy  to be enjoying work.   I am sure Chris will tell you all about his job, so I will leave that to him.   I am now at the Office of the Chief Judge, and really liking it.   I am hoping they trust me with more work soon as I could use it.

Girl guides is starting up into full swing now, it will be very wierd not to be going back to a unit, but I think I am going to enjoy the new job.

No baby news yet, but we are still practicing! :)

I had another shop today with Denise to get rid of some coupons that were going to expire.  I thought I would tell you about it.   I have been saving the money that people have given me for items they have purchased from our pantry/storage and today I went and did a shop and spent that money.   I wanted to know how much I could get for my 27 dollars.   Well I went to LD again and I had $219.75 in coupon savings!!! WOW!  I picked up a few groceries at no frills as well and saved another $13.00 in savings.  I ended up spending 8 dollars of my own spending money.

Here is a picture of my haul:

The picture is missing 2 tubes of sensodyne and a head and shoulders that I left over at Denise's house and 1 bottle of aveeno body wash that is already in the shower:

3 paks of cascade actions packs, 2 packs of pasta carbonara, kashi bars, 2 packs of pampers cruisers mega packs, 2 packs of newborn huggies, 2 jumbo packs of wipes (3 packs in each bag), 16 bars of irish spring soap, large bag of pasta, Aveeno baby gift pack (5 full size items), 2 lash blast mascara's, 2 packs of finish dish washing packs, 2 bounce dryer bars, always pantyliners, dove deoderant and body mist, 2 herbal essence shampoos, 1 dove hairspray, 2 tide stain release sprays, 3 dawn dish detergents, 2 dove shampoos, 1 dove intensive conditioner, 2 dove conditioners, 1 rubermaid refillable bottle, 1 package of royale toilet paper, 6 rolls of scott paper towels, 5 st. ives apricot scrubs, 20 pack of elastics, 4 large boxes of tampons, 2 large boxes of pantyliners, a free tshirt, a clothes dryer rack.

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:


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…

FabFitFun Fall 2017 - Spoilers

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
