Goodbye 2011


It's official! I have posted every single day this year. Well more accurately I should say that there is a post for every day of the year.

2011 was a year of in-betweens for us. A lot of waiting. A few changes. Lots of new wonderful friends.

I am very much looking forward to 2012 and all the changes it is promising to bring!

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

In Calgary!

We have made it safely to Calgary! We got in around noon local time today. It was a bit behind schedule because the roads were terrible in Saskatchewan, very icy and snowy.

I mostly shopped and drove around Calgary today. I went to the Chinook mall earlier today to look for something for the wedding. I could not find anything I liked or that would fit or that was affordable for the longest time.

We checked into our hotel and then the boys left for the bachelor party. So the girls went shopping. We went to Ikea and back to the Chinook mall. I bought a maternity dress. A friend who I was with is pregnant so we went to Thyme maternity because there was a good sale. We actually bough the same dress. It was a good deal. I can't wait to be able to wear it!

Off to Calgary

We started the road trip today! The roads were ok when we left home, and are progressively getting worse as we go. This will take us much longer than we had planned. We hadn't even left Winnipeg until 3! Our plan is to stay in Swift Current for night and drive the rest of the way in the morning. We have to be in Calgary by 11 because we have a groomsmen with us that needs to be at rehearsal.

The End of The Christmas Season

Today we had our 5th and final Christmas gathering of the year. It was filled with good food of course, and great times with family.

We packed some more today, but we still have a few things left and not enough boxes. Tomorrow we leave for Calgary to our friend wedding. I have never been that far west! I am excited about the trip, it should be fun. But with everything going on with the farm and house, I feel like we should stay home!

Packing Day

Today we started the major packing of our house. We started at 10 am, breaked for 1/2 hour for lunch, and packed till almost 4. I packed up the entire living room and Eric did the kitchen. I also did the bathroom and about half of our bedroom.

Even though we have boxes and boxes packed, it feels like we have SO much left. I am planning on packing tomorrow morning too. Hopefully I can get it all done. If not I will just have to do it on the 3rd when we move.

We are really hoping to move on the 3rd, but it is still kinda up in the air. The other people don't know if they will be able to be out by then. I really don't know what we are going to do if we can't move in that day!

Round 4

We had our 4th gathering today with one of Eric's extended families. It was a great time of course!

Lunch was awesome. So awesome in fact, that it is just after 10pm and I am still full. I have hardly eaten anything else all day. I think tomorrow I am just going to drink a cleansing herbal tea all day instead of eating! We have one more gathering on Wednesday, where the food is sure to be delicious too!

We are blessed to have large families to enjoy and spend the holidays with!

Hallelujah! The King Is Here


Merry Christmas Everyone! What an incredible thing for God to send His Son, who would give His life for us to set us free! I hope you are having a wonderful time this family and friends and rejoicing in the miracle of this season!

We spend the day with Eric's parents, Grandpa and siblings. It was a great time with games, lots of awesome food made by Eric's mom, movies and lots of Pinterest :) . 

I don't want to make this day about presents, but I had to share this. My husband really spoiled me this year. This morning I got to open this:
I cannot wait to use it!!

Christmas Fun

Today my bro got an Xbox 360 with Kinect. I think I was more excited than he was. So excited that when I was playing I broke a light bulb in his room with my hand!
 We had my extended family gathering today as well. It was a lot of fun! We did a lot of different things this year. We had a program where I read the Christmas story and some of the kids played music.
 This is how much room we need for my family. There was about 80 of us there this year. This is made up of my aunties, uncles, cousin's and a few of my cousins kids.


 My family
 Miya told me "I was born for this"and that "the camera loves me"
Kadence was the lucky kid to get #1 in the gift game!
 The oven mitt game! Trying to open a gift with oven mitts on!
 The adult version! Probably crazier than the kids!

It was such a fun day! Looking forward to the rest of the gatherings!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

We have now begun our Christmas gatherings! This evening we are at my Mom's for night, we will do gifts with them in the morning. Then we head back to Mennville for my mom's extended family gathering. I am really excited about that one. We have a lot of games planned that will be fun. Christmas Day Eric and I will go to church, do our gifts and then go to his parents for the rest of the day. Boxing day we head to one extended family of Eric's, the 27th we pack up our entire house and the 28th is his other extended family gathering. Then on the 29th we leave for Calgary for a friends wedding on the 1st. We get home late on the 2nd and then move into our new place on the 3rd!

It will be quite a crazy time. I am so looking forward to all the gatherings, spending time with family and eating good food. 

January will be one very busy month!

Last Hockey Game

Tonight was my last hockey game of the season. With fertility treatments starting in two weeks, I can't do anything too strenuous. It was a fun game, some of the men's team came out to play with us. It was a little fast for me and I felt left behind and useless for the most part, but I got a lot of ice time!

Christmas festivities start tomorrow night. We are going out to my mom's tomorrow for the night. I still have a few Christmas gifts to finish making. There just is not enough time in the day!

Ugly Sweater Party

This evening we had a last minute Christmas party! We have been talking about an ugly sweater party for a while, but kinda  ran out of time to have it. So it was tonight or no night. It wasn't a huge party, but it was great to hang out with friends before we all go off to our families for gatherings. Next year hopefully we can plan it more in advanced and have it at our place! EEEEEK!!!

Our Christmas Tree


Here is the finished product! And a few of my favourite decorations.
 



 Our cat Sevens was completely mesmerized by the tree last night. I am sure a few ornamented will go missing this year, as usual.

Christmas Tree Hunting!

It is a Christmas tradition for Eric and his family to go for a Christmas tree together. Ever since we have been married I have gone along to get a tree for us to! It is always a lot of fun, but it always takes WAY more time than you though it would. 




 My new decorations! I think I went a little over board!
 The tree skirt that started it all! I love that it has stars on it, my favourite!
The whole package to come tomorrow!

Christmas Shopping Done!

I finished my Christmas shopping today! Well, there are a few small things I need to pick up in Gimli, but other than that I am done! I did most of it online and at craft sales. Today I took a trip to Selkirk after work to finish off the shopping. I got everything I needed at Wal-Mart, but had a Canadian Tire gift certificate for 25 to use up. I got a 10 dollar item there for my brother, and had the hardest time trying to find something else to spend the other 15 on.

Then I found it, the most beautiful tree skirt ON SALE! We had to throw our other one away last year because it got ruined when we washed it.

Everytime I looked at the Canadian Tire flyer this year I dreamed of the Debbie Travis Homespun collection for my Christmas tree. In other years we have had blue/white/silver but our decor is really cheap. I love the homemade/handcrafted look of the Homespun decor. But it was pretty expensive and I could not afford to buy all new decorations for the tree.

There was a lot of Debbie Travis decor on sale for 60% off, but of course the Homespun collection was not marked down. Or so I thought. I picked a few ornaments from the collection that were around $1 each, just so I could have a few to put on the tree this year to match our tree skirt. My plan was to go back on boxing day and buy all the Homespun decor I wanted on sale! When I went up to the till I was VERY please to find out that all the decorations I had picked out were already on sale for 60% off! Needless today, I was overjoyed. I payed for that, took it out to the car and came back in a bought all the other decorations I had been admiring!

I was having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. With moving so soon after Christmas, I wasn't really wanting to decorate or get a tree. But now I can't wait! Tomorrow we go for a tree!

Another Project


I would LOVE to make this. Each flower is made individually and joined together. It would be a lot of work though!

Home Cooked Meals

Other than the last three nights, I seriously cannot remember the last time Eric and I cooked a good meal at home. It has been well over a month!

But for the last three nights we have. Monday we made homemade pizza with sundried tomatoes. I LOVE sun dried tomatoes. I can't even get enough of them!

Tuesday Eric had taco salad ready when I got home. He even made some spicy cheese sauce cause we had no cheese it the house. 

This evening I made a Peanut Thai stir fry. The flavour was AWESOME, but my thai sauce to peanut butter ratio was off, and it was way to spicy for me. But ERIC love it. 

Oh how I have missed food like this. I cannot wait until we have a huge beautiful kitchen to cook in!

$75 For Free!

Steeped Tea is having an awesome promotion this month!

If you book a tea party before December 19th, to hold in January, you will get a bonus $75 to spend on tea! That is ALOT of free tea!

Please let me know if you are interested!

Studying

I would like to study the Bible more. Like really study it. I want to be able to find a verse I am looking for instead of just remembering how it goes, sort of.

I don't really know how to do this. Eric suggested memorization. I think that is a great idea. So I am going to start. I am intimidated by the thought of it. It seems like so much!

In Jesus' time, however, that is how the Scriptures were passed along, through words. They didn't have a tonne of Bibles to read. They had to memorize!

Good Sunday

Today was a good Sunday. I had a great sunday school class, a friend came to church for the first time, I had my second Steeped Tea party at 2pm and that is it! I finally had an evening with nothing planned. 

I got a chance to keep working on my Christmas cards. I would like to hand make them all this year! Pretty much everyone will be getting the same one, it makes the process much faster when you have 50+ to make! 

Tomorrow we have an appointment at the bank to talk about a loan for our new place! So excited! Only 3 weeks!

Bro's Hockey

I got to watch my brother play a hockey game for the first time today. I can't even express how excited and proud I am that he is playing. He is 11 and this is his first year. He is doing great!

They have won every game of the season so far, so my bro is pretty pumped about that.

I love that I finally have someone to go watch and cheer for. I can't wait till we have our own kids in sports so I can go watch and cheer them on!

Little Drummer Boy



I love this video! It was done by a 16 year old high school student from Winnipeg. He did everything himself for this song including playing the instruments, editing the video, etc. I think it is an incredible job, very artistically shot, and clear, crisp video. But most importantly I love his enthusiasm!

First IUI Appointment!

We had our consent signing/injection training today at Heartland. It went great and I am excited to get started! 

I am not going to lie, I am very nervous about starting injectables. It just seems like such a giant step from what we have done in the past. Unknown territory. And at the same time I am excited to move on. 

Right now I am on BC pills until January 4th. Then when AF arrives I start Suprefact injections for 4 days. Then on the third day of Suprefact I also start 150mg injections of Gonal-F. I will do this for 6 days then I got for some bloodwork and an ultrasound to see how I am progressing and then they will adjust from there.

First Tea Party

This evening I held my very first Steeped Tea party!

I had a great turn out and booked a few new parties. But most of all I really, REALLY enjoyed sharing tea with people and teaching them about loose tea. I was so excited to order a bunch of new teas for myself and for samples. I can't wait to try them! :)

TMJ

Today I went to the TMJ specialist in Winnipeg. I have had jaw issues ever since I was a teenager. But for the last year or so it had been causing me a lot of pain and headaches and I don't think I have been sleeping well.

The visit went very well. He has a solution for my issues that involve a dental appliance during the day, and a different one for night. I really would like to get them, but they are QUITE expensive. I will have to figure out a way to pay for them soon though, because my jaw pain is getting worse and worse as time goes by. I have good days where it doesn't bother me at all, and then I have bad days where it is very uncomfortable.

I feel like I have so many things wrong with me. :(

Miss Them

Lately I have been missing tiny puppies running around my house. I always start dreaming about puppies around this time of year. But with all my dogs spayed, that won't be happening this year. :(

Last Sale

Today was my last craft sale of the season. It was a cozy home sale that Eric's cousin invited me to. It was really great and they had a really good turn out! I was also at one last night in Arborg.

I am very happy with how my sales went this year! I am hoping to get in some bigger sales this spring and next fall. I need to plan ahead to get in this sales, because lots of them I tried because they were already full! I have a few months to make stuff before the sales start up again.

I will be uploading my current stock to my website, www.cyansea.ca in the next few days!

Steeped Tea

I love tea. I drink a lot of it. I can't really drink coffee because it makes me sick.

So when I heard of Steeped Tea I was pretty excited. It was high quality loose teas and accessories with a direct selling company. It didn't take me long to decide to sign up to be a consultant.

It is a Canadian company started 5 years ago in Hamilton, Ontario.

I am so excited to start doing tea parties. How fun is that?!

Check out the products and company on my website www.mysteepedtea.com/lindsey 

I know what many of you are thinking.... ANOTHER thing that I am selling?!?! I know, I know. But I just couldn't resist! What can I say? I really love tea!

The Start!

I went in for some baseline CD2 bloodwork today. Actually it was CD3 because I forgot my forms at home yesterday. I also had to do a urine pregnancy test. Seems so silly when you are on CD3.

They called me an hour after I was at the lab to tell me the test was negative, and that I would be starting birth control on the 4th. I will take it for a whole month until January 4th. This is the very first step in our IUI and I am excited to be doing something, but not excited to be taking birth control pills. I really want nothing to do with those ever again, but I know they are necessary in this process.

In other infertility news, a woman that I know sent me an interesting Facebook message the other day. I had messaged her to ask if she wanted to host a Partylite show and that's it. In turn, she messaged me back and was wondering if we had ever considered that maybe it was God's plan for my womb to be closed and maybe it was for a reason. She was also wondering why the fertility treatments were so expensive and maybe we should check out how much they are in the US. She also mentioned that she wanted to tell me all this because she didn't want to be one of those people taking behind my back, as she has received some comments about me.

The first few things didn't bother me so much, but it was the fact that people are talking behind my back about my infertility. I am *SO* curious to know what they are saying! What is there to say about someone who is struggling. Do they think I shouldn't talk about it so much? Do they think I shouldn't pursue treatments? And why? Would they say the same things to someone who was sick? Like maybe it was God's plan for them to be ill and maybe they shouldn't go to the doctor?

NO! I firmly believe that God has blessed medical staff with knowledge and skills so that His people can be in turned bless through it! After all, God prefers to work through His children than on His own.

I told this lady to please let those people who have issued with what I am doing to give me a call. I would love to chat with them.

More Bath Stuff

Again, I am exhausted. I got my rush shipment of citric acid in, so I could make some last minute bath bombs!

I only had enough to make two different kinds, Strawberry Limeade and Creamsicle. I am not sure if I have enough for this weekends sales, but I am just going to have to accept the fact that I might not have enough. I will just have to be more well prepared next time.

I love making bath stuff, but I don't really enjoy it after a long day of work.

Tomorrow I just have to sew a table cloth and pack up then I am all ready for the weekend!

Poker Party

The men's Partylite poker party went well. Eric ended up winning, so I am not sure how I feel about that. In once sense it is fair and square because he put in an order and won the game, but on the other hand I feel bad that he was the one to win because I was the one putting it on. Honestly I wasn't even there because I had a hockey game. Eric had to do all the orders! Now just one more show to close and that is all I have planned for Partylite for the month

I do have a few people who are wanting to have parties in December, so that is awesome. I think I will reach my goal of 10,000 after all, it just won't all be in November.

Almost To My Goal!

Today was exhausting.

It started in the morning when a hair disaster. I tried using sleep in rollers overnight for waves, but my hair turned out like Shirley Temple! I tried to fix it, but it didn't work so I just put it in a pony tail because I was already late to teach sunday school!

Right after church I drove up to Matheson Island, which is over an hour drive, for a Partylite show, I was late and embarrassed, but it was a really great show. I felt so rushed the whole time.

After the show I drove straight back home, picked up some stuff and went to a friends to watch the Grey Cup. I spend the first half entering the show because the sale ended today and I needed it done by 11 pm tonight.

After the game, I closed another Partylite show and went home to quickly enter it and close it by 11. I just squeaked by and sent it in at 10:55.

After that I finished up another Partylite show and send it off.

I feel like I have been going non stop today, and I am more than ready for a good long sleep.

I am VERY pleased to say that I am nearly 70% of the way to reaching my goal of $10,000 in sales in November. Tomorrow I have a Men's Partylite Poker party and one more book party to go. I am thinking I will get $8000 before the end of November, unless of course the guys order tonnes of stuff tomorrow!

Teulon Sale

The Teulon craft sale went well! I only have like 5 bath bombs left, so I hope I can find some citric acid in this next week so I can make some more for the two sales I have on the weekend!

Afterwards I went to the city to get some fabric to make a table cloth and some card stock from Michaels for making Christmas cards. I decided that my table cloth was pathetic and made my display look cheap cause it wasn't big enough for the table. I got a really pretty blue fabric that kinda looks like water! I am hoping to sew it long enough to cover the whole front of the table so I can store my bins under there for future sales!

I would love to do one or two more sales this year, so if you know of any please let me know!

Friday, November 25, 2011

Teulon Tomorrow!

The Riverton Christmas Market was an AWESOME turn out! I sold way to much stuff! I know that it is a good thing, but I wish I had more for tomorrow in Teulon. And I am going to have to get some citric acid rush shipped to me so I will have enough for next weekend! I have a sale on Friday night and a sale on Saturday!

I am so happy to be doing this well! God has blessed me that for sure!

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Riverton Christmas Market!

Tomorrow Cyan Sea and Partylite will be set up at the Riverton hall for the Riverton Christmas Market from 5-10pm! I am hoping I will have enough stuff, and that it will be a good turn out!

The 90 Day Challenge

I guess I should post an update on my 90 Day Challenge that I was doing.

I didn't complete it.

I got 60 days in and realized that it was the shake mix that was making me sick.

It is not that the mix is bad for you. In fact lots of friends and family have been feeling fantastic because of it.

It is because I have a milk intolerance. At first I thought I had a lactose intolerance, but the shakes don't have lactose and when I did have milk products, the Lactaid did nothing.

I have noticed that if I go without any dairy, my stomach feels fantastic. As soon as I eat a bit of cheese or drink some milk, it acts up.

I am totally crushed about this. I love the Visalus shakes. They were delicious, easy and they were saving me money. I am so glad they are working for so many other people and I *SO* wish that I could still drink them.

SO all in all the shakes didn't help me loose a whole lot of weight, but they did help me discover my milk intolerance. And I am thankful for that.

Another Call

Heartland called today, and it turns out we are on the top of the IVF list and can do one in February if we want! WOW! So unexpected!

They did see that we are doing an IUI in January, so the nurse said we can try as many of those as we want and when we are done we can move straight to IVF because we will be kept on the top of that list.

I can't even express how excited I am about that. No more months and months of waiting for a new procedure.  It is hard to believe our luck, or should I say blessing.

Now don't get me wrong, I am praying hard that we won't have to do more than one IUI!

I Miss This

Again, I draw a blank. I don't know what is meaningful enough to put on here.

Today I am missing this place. I miss the food. The people. The sun on my face. The scooters. The start dogs. The smell of the sea.

I can't wait to go back!

Sunday, November 20, 2011

G

I am pretty tired today, and I don't know what to post. We had a lazy day and I really have no reason to be tired. But I am just feeling really stressed about work, trying to meet my Partylite goal, moving, buying the farm, infertility, trying to eat healthy and not getting enough exercise. My mid back stiffness is bad right now and my jaw has been hurting lots. I don't mean to complain, I am just feeling overwhelmed lately.

So, all you really get is a cute picture of my Greaser.

Cinnamon Bread

I made this today! Just about to go have a slice right now...

I made it with soy milk, margarine and whole wheat. But I used really sugar, I could only compromise so much...

Friday, November 18, 2011

Busy With Candles

This evening I have been very busy organizing myself with Partylite. I got an new order in, oh how I missed the sweet smell of fresh Partylite, so I organized that. Then I called and messaged people to try to book some more shows. I got one more booked. I would still like 2 or 3 more home parties this month! I have spent the last few minutes totalling up orders from Facebook and e-mail.

I am thinking about having a Mystery hostess party. I am not sure how well it will do, but I am getting worried about reaching my goal. It is SO hard to get people to book parties. I don't understand. I LOVE going to parties!

So far I am at $2800 in sales. I have 4 book parties on the go that I am closing soon, and one home party to do. I will get halfway for sure!

New House Dreams

I have been dreaming a lot about the new house. I love this look with the grey walls, white wainscotting and dark floors.

I LOVE the colour of the floors in the second picture.

And the very dark grey in the last picture is really intriguing!

Fiesta Lime Chicken

Today we hosted a bible study and potluck at our place and I tried a new recipe.  It is one of my favourites from applebees. I don't know why I always try recipes for the first time on a new crown, but I do. It was delicious! I am glad I did. I subbed the sour cream for greek yogurt & skipped the tequila. Next time I will also use the light mayo, but this time we were just using up what we had!

Fiesta Lime Chicken


Directions:

  1. 1 Prepare marinade: Mix together in bowl; water, teriyaki sauce, juice from 1/2 of lime, garlic, tequila (if desired), liquid smoke, salt and ginger.
  2. 2 Marinate chicken breasts at least an hour in mixture.
  3. 3 Prepare sauce: Mix together in bowl; mayonnaise, sour cream, salsa, milk, cajun spice, parsley and hot sauce.
  4. 4 Cover and place in refrigerator until needed.
  5. 5 Broil or grill chicken chicken until cooked through.
  6. 6 Brush tops of chicken breasts with sauce, sprinkle on cheese and broil until cheese is melted.
  7. 7 Cut remaining lime into 4ths.
  8. 8 Serve chicken on tortilla chips with lime garnish.
  9. 9 Great with rice!

Wooden Countertops

In the fun of dreaming and planning for our house, somehow I thought of the idea to have wooden countertops. I would really like the look of them, and I would like to stain them the same colour of the table I will build. I am still trying to research it to see what is safe stain wise and what type of wood I should use. We don't care it if gets beat up and burned. In fact we kinda like that. We want it to look rustic and well worn. We actually want to use it as a cutting board too. Eric wants to be able to stick knives in it instead of using a knife block.

If you know of anyone who has done their own wood countertops please let me know. I think I would like to ask them some questions!

Tournament & Ten Pin

So the boys lost. Every game. Made for not so exciting hockey, but I had a great time hanging out with friends.

After the tournament was over we went to Montana's for supper an then 10 pin bowling! I have never been 10 pin bowling before, and I found it was a lot easier. I even managed to get a strike throwing with my left hand! We had a great night/weekend with friends. We definitely don't do that enough!

Friday, November 11, 2011

EMC Cup

This weekend are in Steinbach for the EMC Cup mens hockey tournament. This is a weekend I always look forward to every weekend. I enjoy relaxing, chatting with friends, watching the boys play and mostly a weekend away with Eric. 

They lost their game this evening, and have a game first thing tomorrow morning at 815, and then again at 230ish. We have a lot of time to kill. I plan on doing a costco run and possible looking for some flooring for the new place! Should be a fun day!

First Successful Show!

This evening I had my first Partylite show. It was a HUGE success. There was so many people that showed up it was unreal. I felt so overwhelmed and so blessed by the support. Thank you to everyone that came out!

I was starting to doubt whether I could sell 10,000 this month. But this give me a lot more hope!

OH! And my website is up and running, so if you can't make it to any of the shows and would like to order, please check it out!

This Weeks Sad Menu

So someone asked what our meal plan was for the week. It is kinda sad this week, but I will post it anyways.

Tuesday - Breakfast for supper & fruit
Wednesday - Hamburgers with carrot stick
Thursday - Frozen Pizza and salad.

Not very creative this week. We mostly used stuff on hand, and though of how much time we have. We chose frozen pizza on thursday because it is on sale, and neither of us will have a lot of time to make a nice meal on Thursday.

We will be sitting down with on Sunday night with the flyers to try to figure out next weeks menu. It should be much more creative!

Menu Plan

Last night we decided to start doing a menu plan. We were wasting a lot of food, and spending too much money on groceries we didn't need. It made today's shopping experience much easier, and we don't have to ponder all day what we are having. I am excited that we are doing this together. I am interested to see how much money it will save us!

Foster "Child"

Today I kinda took in a Chihuahua who needs a home. She is 5 years old and very very sweet. She follows me around the house already. She needs a home with no small children.

Finished Quilts

Not sure if you remember me posting about making quilts last February. Well I finally finished them and they turned out great. The quilter did a great job and the design is beautiful. They are finally off to their new owners. I finished them a few weeks ago but only uploaded the pictures to my computer today!
