Arrived at the retreat on time & I didn’t get lost šŸ™‚ !So far it’s been really good not a dull moment at all. I’m surprised really. Here’s some pictures of the room we have. It’s super cute and much much much better than the bunk beds we had last year with 8 other girls. Just me and Karen sharing this room (my co-worker).

By the time it was dinner i was starving! Dinner was at 6:30pm and we had about 45 minutesĀ to eat.Ā  it was buffet style I had broccoliĀ and cheese ravioli, veggies and small salad a dinner roll and caned pears šŸ™‚


Dessert was a whole other ball game!!! This had to be one of the best desserts I’ve ever had!
I had half of a slice and this cheese cake that had an apple on it which tasted amazing. THEN the best one i had wasĀ a half of a slice of cranberry pumpkin cheese cake… IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD. I should have taken a whole slice instead šŸ˜‰


After dinner we had another class and then we headed out to the bon fire. It’s super cold out tonight I stayed outside for hmm about 45 minutes. I had 1 smoreĀ and 2 roasted marshmallows & now I’m here typing. It’s 11:30 almost and tomorrow we have to be up at 5:45am to meet at 6am to go for a run. YUP A RUN AT 6AM!!! yikes!! haha

Here’s a picture of my boss doing on of the fun activities we had tonight. The group I was in actually won :).



So as i said I’m having a pretty good time. I’m glad I came now only will this help me at work but it will help me at home to. That’s what I look forward to the most. Bringing more love and happiness home to help my relationships outside of work and improve the relationship between Nick and I.

Back on track!

So last week I was super busy with school project after school project and I so badly wanted to post but because I didn’t get a chance to post each day I ending up saying it will just take too long for me to put everything up here so I didn’t post at all. But starting today… I’m getting back on track I still have a lot of projects but I gotta go away for a retreat for work today so at night I’m hoping I can use my lap top to look up stuff on the internet. I’m not looking forward to this retreat last year we were in the middle of no where which was cool because the nature around us was beautiful and i really enjoyed my self. This time were just like at a hotel…. lame!!!! So i packed this morning and after headed to class, class is almost over then I have to stop home to say good-bye to all the pets and grab everything. I have to be at the hotel by 2:30pm classes start a 3pm sharp.


Breakfast we quick and one of my favs! Flax seed waffles with organic peanut butter and organic preserve with kiwi =]

IMG_3514It always hold me over for a long time.

At 11:30 I went into the cafe and thought i’d make a small salad and ask for tuna on top. Well thank god i bought onion rings because my salad was gross… who knew salads could be gross. YUK YUK YUK I should of saved that $5 for something better… like starbucks šŸ˜¦ haha

IMG_3515I’m going to try my best to post! I hope theirs an internet connection at the hotel so I can post at night when we’re done our classes… dump stupid work retreat that I’m not even paid for. I won’t get started on that!

Art is beautiful!

Okay so I’m still at Barnes & Noble but I’m leaving every soon. WhileĀ here doing research I had an iced pumpkin spice latte & a veggie sandwich. It was filledĀ with pesto, cheese & tomato… that’s really allĀ I know and they also gave me a bag ofĀ chips which I ate šŸ˜® shhhh haha.IMG_2969

I ment to sprinkleĀ chocolate on top of my iced latte but it basically spilt into it šŸ˜¦ and then I topped that with more cinnamon… lol then my latte really didn’t taste muchĀ like pumkin at all.


As you may be able to see I’m sporting the old Eagles Jersey. They won today!!! But, I didn’t have a chance to watch any of the game because IĀ was here looking up Albert Bierstadt. I have a speech I need to do on Thursday, I choose him as my topic because he drew nature… a lot of trees :). I did not however,Ā start my speech but I did look at his art pieces and learned more about him. Here is a few of the ones I really like.





Once I leave here I have loads of laundry to do and much needed boyfriend time. No idea what’s for dinner but I can’t wait until 9pm for DROP DEAD DIVA šŸ™‚


What do you consider art?
