Since I was up anyway……

I hit the market at 7am this morning.
If it hadn’t been for Matt needing a ride to work I probably would have skipped the market and slept in until I had to go to work.  Waking up at the very second and rushing to get dressed and then to run out of time before having a chance to make my lunch.  NOT TODAY!!!!

Today at 7am the market was just coming to life.  It was kinda beautiful to me honest.  The farmers were the only ones walking around that didn’t look like zombies off of the set of the Walking Dead.  I can’t even begin to guess what time these amazing people get up to pack their trucks and head to the market.  The colours displayed on every stand and table were stunning.  Hard to believe that nature makes all this yummy food.

I spent about $20.00 and came home with fresh mouth watering veggies, huge farm fresh eggs (our chickens haven’t started laying eggs yet), and a bunch of pretty flowers.  I haven’t even eaten any of the loot I grabbed and I can already hear my body saying way to go!!!!

Since I am no longer in a rush I pulled out the spiral grinder and made some zucchini noodles for mine and Taya’s lunch today.  Tristan’s heading out for the next two days with a friend to wakeboard and watch some pro wake skaters in Sarnia…..while Taya, Matt and I will be working!  So this lunch should be some good fuel for our bodies today!

Go get some asparagus its already the last week for these yummy lil trees!

Its My Birthday!

You know What????

Getting old is pretty awesome when you are growing old with someone you love…….and when that someone is 3 years older than you that doesn’t hurt either!
I had the most beautiful day.  Slept in until 9:30, Tristan brought me breakfast in bed which consisted of crackers with cheese, yogurt and a glass of OJ.  Then Taya, Tristan and I went shopping where I found out I went down a dress size!  If that’s not a great BDay present I don’t know what is.  After shopping the kids and I picked Matt up from work and came home to unwrap a pile a presents.  From Taya I got a great new beach towel, 2 awesome mason jar mugs, flip flops and hair stuff.  Tristan bought me a yummy cupcake and an itunes card, my crazy hot tanned husband bought me a fire bowl, chocolates, and replaced my poopy cell phone with a pretty new one!  The gift giving didn’t stop there, my parents got me a gift card to David’s Tea and a new Life Jacket.  On top of all that my mom made a great dinner for all of us, full of veggies and great pasta with alfredo sauce.  My dad and I got to watch the sailing race from their backyard.  I love that my dad has shared the gift of sailing with me!

I had the best Birthday a girl could ask for surrounded by people that love me almost as much as I love them!

Can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
