35 - Pass out Candies

Halloween is fast approaching and what do you guys have planned? Light up some fireworks with friends/family, go to a haunted house or out to a Halloween costume party?  If you still haven't planned anything yet, why not stay home and hand out candies to all the kids in the neighborhood?! Wouldn't it be fun to watch all the little kiddies dressed up in their little costumes!!! That's our plan for this year and I can't wait to see all the little ghosts & goblins.  It definitely brings back childhood memories - TRICK OR TREAT!!!

34 - Listen to the Rain

Living in Vancouver, I often hear people talking about the weather. It's too hot, it's too cold and it's too wet! What if we just enjoy the moment and the four seasons we're given here? I mean, we can't change mother nature :)

Listening to the rain is actually quite calming, soothing in fact. The sound of the rain drops especially when its raining really hard with lightning is even better. I can sit here all morning, watch out my window with my cup of tea and watch this amazing water fall.  It also gives you time to think and for that - I love Raincouver!

33 - Cooking at Home

I'm no chef, trust me when I say this! but being home all the time really gets boring so I have to think of creative ways to entertain myself.  So I have decided to cook! yes, just as simple as that, twice a week - that's what I told my husband.  First thing first - Look for some simple easy recipe online and start from there, don't over whelm yourself and start making a gourmet dinner and the whole nine yard! It doesn't (totally) matter how the food turns out, as long as it's edible -"Trial & errors!!"
And to make things a little more fun, I blast up the music, make myself a fruit juice, have the tv on, and I start cooking!  Oh, and the best part of home cooking is, if you don't like carrots - Don't add carrots and replace it with whatever you

 Here's one super easy, and super yummy recipe that will be the talk of the town during the holiday seasons.

Candid Yams Recipe

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes or yams
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 sticks sweet butter, cubed

Peel potatoes and cut into 2-inch cubes. Place potatoes in large pot, cover with sugar, brown sugar and butter cook over medium heat until potatoes are fork tender (about 20 minutes) but not mushy. Serve and enjoy this sweetness of heaven!!

Hope you guys find it fun cooking by yourself as much as I do!!  If you know of any great simple recipe, please do share w me!

32 - When in doubt, follow your passion...

So what exactly happened to me the last 2 years. Well, there's a little thing call life and it goes like this...

I met a guy at work, we dated, we moved in together for a year and things are FABULOUS! we got engaged, and got married. But wait....we also bought a house 10 days after we got married and realized we're expecting TWINS, yes twin runs in my family gene. Woooohoo!!! now, I'm taking some time off work, best resting the last 2months of my first trimester -BRUTAL.
Laying here, thinking to myself, I can't sit here all day!!! I started asking myself some really important questions. What are my passion, what do I love doing & what did I use to love doing before all this craziness (happy craziness). I needed an out. An outlet for me to release all these emotion and energy that I have inside. Something that allow me to do this while nesting at home with my babies. And now I'm back to my blog and will pick up reading too :)
