Hubby and I eat most of our meals outside of the house. I always wake up early to have a slow breakfast at home before leaving in the morning, and he usually grabs something while running out the door, and when we leave our backpacks are filled with lunch, snacks... Continue reading

I'm slowly plugging away at my goal to scrapbook our adventures. It's hard when we keep having more and more adventures though ;) I'll forever be behind. Here is a two page layout I did of our first backpacking trip together TWO summers ago already. And then a little one... Continue reading

It's no secret that breakfasts are my fave! I've asked my Husband to promice me that when we are retired we can go out for breakfast together every morning. He says yes, if we are millionaires. Until then I'll continue making us morning feasts before school or work at home!... Continue reading

We've been very loosely documenting progress of the baby bump these past couple months. This is mainly because progress has been so slow, and since the first month and a bit was completely undocumented before we were aware what was growing inside me! I barely saw any change in myself...

This past weekend was a really good one, and I actually dusted off and used my camera so I have more posts ready to come :) I had a doctors appointment Friday morning and got to hear baby's heartbeat loud and clear, how can a weekend that starts off that... Continue reading

Hello, world! Where have I been? I've been rotating shifts between the library and my bed :) The semester is wrapping up, summer employment is lining up nicely and I have a feeling there's going to be a lot more activity around these parts in the next while. I told... Continue reading

This has been a really hard week. Well, almost 2 weeks now. It's all a blur of sleep deprivation and 3 midterm exams and coughing my lungs out and chicken noodle soup. I've been the disruptive girl in class coughing the first 30 minutes through because hauling my backpack through... Continue reading

My mom and I recently experimented with her pasta maker and I could not believe how easy it is! I expected pasta making to be an elaborate process that took all afternoon just to make dinner and really, who has time for that? It took mom and an 1 one... Continue reading

We've decided not to find out if we are having a boy or a girl, so I'm getting prepared for both! If it's a girl I'm ready to embarrass her when she's older by showing her pictures of us wearing matching headbands while she was a baby. :) I was... Continue reading

My husband and I had a break between classes Monday afternoon and used it to go for a run together. We had planned it to be a long easy run around the track, and noticed shortly into it that we were right on pace to meet my goal of running... Continue reading

^^ Herbal and Rooibos tea are both naturally decaffinated, and since I was an avid coffee drinker until finding out I was pregnant it was a rough transition. Peppermint tea in the morning just isn't the same. I did work at DavidsTea at the perfect time though and was able... Continue reading

Team Camsell is expecting our newest recruit at the end of August, and we couldn't be more excited! The first photo was taken at our last trackmeet this past weekend, after we'd announced our big news to the team. It feels so good to have this secret off my chest!... Continue reading

We're officially in the 'dog days' of winter. After a couple of wonderfully warm weeks in January, the groundhog saw his shadow and we have 6 more weeks (more like three months) of the shimmery white stuff. That calls for comfort food sprinkled with chives, cheddar and bacon - with... Continue reading

Lets pretend that this isn't the sixth piece of cake I've eaten in four days. They weren't all this lemon cake either, but chocolate, cheesecake and icecream cake too. It was a record breaking weekend of birthdays and belated Christmas parties. Lets pretend that the beautiful sunbeams dancing around the... Continue reading

I have friends scattered all over the globe right now from the Philipines to South Korea to New Zealand and all over the U.S. I'm following their amazing mission trips, relief missions and bible school adventures via various forms of social media and working very hard at not being envious...

Every year Husband gets to choose his birthday cake, and every year he requests icecream! I made him a similar style cake 2 years ago with store bought french vanilla icecream and raspberries folded in, and last year's cake was peanut buster parfait inspired and again I used store bought...

I made two Christmas gifts for my Husband this year, this mug and a knit toque, and he loved them both! It actually took him a second to realize that this one was homemade. You've probably seen this idea floating around pinterest, it's got to be one of the easiest... Continue reading

^^ I didn't take hardly any photos this weekend. It was very much a spend-quality-time-with-my-guy, our friends and family kind of weekend since husband celebrated his birthday on Sunday. I baked his birthday cake on Friday. As per usual, he requested an icecream cake (for the 3rd year in a... Continue reading

Meet my lovely friend Lindi, her husband and the greatly anticipated new arrival of their family! These 2 (well, 3) are great. I mean, we had an impromptu tea party in the middle of the photoshoot, which was especially divine because it was freezing outside. They're a dynamic duo and... Continue reading

I shared my 2013 New Years resolutions at the start of last year and although I haven't settled on what this year's will be (how is it January 8th already??) I have been thoroughly enjoying scrolling through the archives of 2013 and seeing that I definitely accomplished some of my... Continue reading

^^ On the first day of 2014 we swung by the Bucks to get a zen tea for me and an eggnog latte for the mister before beginning the long drive to my brother and sister-in-law's house. ^^ ^^ I'd made a goal at the start of 2013 to eat... Continue reading

Classes start up for the winter semester today and as I sit here with my breakfast and tea I'm all too aware of how unprepared I am, ha. This was a killer Christmas break with the perfect blend of low-key time visiting with family, travelling, excitement and adventure, with just... Continue reading

With my husband's family we draw names to decide who buys for who at Christmas. I may have 'influenced' whose name I drew this year to make sure it was Kelly since I'd knit her the infinity scarf pictured above during the summer and was just dying to make a... Continue reading

^^ My mother-in-law made that festive banner, and my father-in-law made the adorable kitchen set for my niece! There are wooden shelves on the fridge door, a sliding drawer under the oven and the stove's knobs turn. The kids loved it, how could they not?! ^^ ^^ It was my... Continue reading
