What's going on?

Here is a melting pot of the last week or so.

-I am still sick from our trip. I did go see the doctor and I am on a special diet to have a series of test done. So keeping positive.

-My god son is now out of the hospital and home. :) I will not go see him right away because I don't know yet if I am contagious and he is so tiny that I don't want to give him or his 2 sisters what ever I have.

-Work is absolutely crazy because of the government year end and our big wins across Canada.

-This weekend I am hosting another girls night of clothes exchange.

-I put together the package for my Dozen of eggs giveaway, so dont forget to participate.

-I am picture hunting for the new color of my blog for the month of April

-My best friend is moving back to town in July, she misses us too much.

-I got my Master Card cloned (but they stopped it in time)

-Me and D have taken the bed frame apart (I was so scared of it falling apart)

-This weekend I will have a 3 day weekend and it will be over 20C degrees (YAY)

And it is Easter Sunday! Woot Woot! Chocolate heaven!!!!!

Twilight update

I finally caught up to all of you!

This weekend I watch both first and second movies and I am all ready for the third one.

I have to say that when I read the books I was completely in love with Edward, but after seeing the movies I am disappointed. I don't think that the actor is the reflection of the character that the book described. I am not saying that Robert Pattinson is a bad actor, I just don't think he played the part right. I didn't feel the love, the sensuality and passion between Edward and Bella as I felt it in the books.

I my mind I have this picture perfect of Edward and I still dream that he is real and that I could be his Bella.

Dozen of eggs

As most of you know I am a chocoholic.
You also know that next weekend is Easter, my favorite holiday in the world.

It is chocolate heaven everywhere :)

Since I want to share my love of chocolate with you guys on this special day of mine, I decided to do a quick giveaway.

To the lucky person I will send a dozen of Cadbury eggs!

Here is what you need to do:

-Let me know your a follower (1 entry)
-Post a picture of a Cadbury egg on your blog and let me know (1 entry)
-Talk about my 'Dozen of eggs' giveaway on your blog and let me know (1 entry)
-Post a video of a Cadbury egg commercial on your blog and let me know (3 entries)

I'll announce the winner on Easter day!

Good luck!

In the meantime here is a recipe to make the eggs at home.

-1/4 cup of corn syrup
-1/4 cup of soft butter
-1 tea spoon of vanilla
-1/4 tea spoon of salt
-3 cups of powder sugar
-4 drops of yellow food coloring
-2 drops of red food coloring
-1 bag of 12oz of chocolate chips
-2 table spoons of vegetable grease

1- mix corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in a big bowl with electric mixer until creamy.
2- add powder sugar one cup at a time mixing by hand until creamy
3- take 1/3 of this mix and put it aside and add yellow and red coloring to it
4- covers both bowls and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours.
5- when both mixes are hard create a little ball the size of a marble with colored mix and wrap a part of the white mix around this one(give it the shape of an egg)
6- do this with all the mix and place of a grease cookie sheet in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.
7- in a big bowl mix chocolate chips and vegetable grease. Microwave for one minute, stir, microwave another minute and stir.
8- use a fork to dip mix into chocolate (hit the fork on side of bowl to remove exceeding chocolate) place eggs on a wax paper and place back in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
9- re-dip your eggs a second time after and in the fridge again until eggs are hard.

Enjoy :P:P:P

Forest Gump moment

I cant say much about what is going on in my life at this moment, but like Forest said:

Sometimes, I guess there just aren't enough rocks.

Holguin, Cuba part 2

Here is the second part of my trip.

Everyday the sky and sea were crystal clear :)

We went on a pedal boat adventure and had trouble returning to shore. We changed places in the boat so that the palms could actually touch the water. I slipped and made myself a horrible bruise a little bit bigger than a golf ball on my butt cheek.

D's sister came up with the idea of doing a speedo contest. So most of our vacation we were on the look out for guys wearing speedo's (sorry if your guy wears one)

Wednesday night things turned ugly. I got really sick, dizziness, diarrhea, blood pressure drops, hot flash, ect... and it lasted for 3 days; I am still not completely back from it. We are not sure if it was the famous Tourista, the food, a bug or dehydration. So I mostly stayed in bed for the rest of the trip, but I still have a few picture to show you.

Thursday D's family headed outside the resort on scooters to see the people and how they live.

D's mom scooter broke down on the side of the road and the got stuck there for more than 3 hours not speaking the language. As you maybe know in Cuba because of the trade embargo with the United States there is no vehicle or car parts that have come in to the country since the 1950's. The guy from the rental place drove there to help them after half of the group returned to the resort; D's mom did get her money back.

Before the scooter broke down they were able to visit the site where Christopher Columbus arrived int the 1800's (I think)

The Friday I was able to get out of the room a few minutes, just in time to see D's parents in the sea waving.

It was D's parents, my friend Sylvain and my sister first trip ever out of the country. Look at the smile on my sisters face :) She had the trip of her life!

The day of the departure me not so well with D in bed.

Me at 4 o'clock waiting for the golf cart to come pick us up to go check out.

The famous golf cart.

Back in Montreal waiting for our ride. I am showing off my tan that I got even if I spent most of the last 3 days in bed.

And a happy me going home in the limo.

We got home it was around 1:30 am, we had food/pizza delivered as at the time we left the hotel we did not have dinner.

It was my third year in Cuba and I learned a few things

-Drink lots of bottled water to prevent dehydration.
-Cuban toilet paper is not soft.
-Communicating rooms with a couple that argues all the time and have a crying baby is no fun.
-Imodium is necessary
-Cuban people love if you bring chocolate (other stuff as well)
-Banana's don't grow in a tree but in a huge plant.
-If your are a citizen of the United State and go to Cuba the US government will give you a fine of 10000$
-Canada has a beer brewery in Holguin.
-If you pass customs in Cuba with more than 200 convertible pesos, they cease your money.

Unfortunately I did not rest like I wanted (special thanks to crying baby), but I did not think about work at all the entire week.

I did have a nice trip even if the end was a bit crappy, but to see my sister smile and glow so much after all she's been through the past few years, it was all worth it.

I did get to practice a little bit my Spanish, but I am shy to use it.

It was supposed to be our last trip down south, we now want to start exploring the rest of the world, but I guess we'll see next year what happens.

After a day of laundry, tomorrow is back to reality.

Hasta Luego!

Holguin, Cuba part 1

As I promised let me tell you about my vacation in beautiful Holguin Cuba.

We were a group of 8. Me and D, D's parents, D's sister and her boyfriend, my sister and my friend Sylvain.

The night before we left one little guy was dreaming he could come with us.

The next morning we were running around last minute crazy for vehicles until our ride to the airport arrived.

Here is a part of the happy group in the limo :)

Our plane left on time, it was a short 4 hour flight then a one hour bus ride to the resort. We got there and it was 10:30 pm and they just had a big thunderstorm. We checked in and went to bed pretty early.

To go to our rooms it was dark and the resort seemed to be pretty big so a golf cart took us to our room, the next morning when we got up we were a little lost.

It was overcast the first day we were there but I still took a few pictures of the 7 pools of the resort.

And a little shopping (hands in pockets trying to resist buying jewelry)

Me and D's dad explored a little bit away from the beach resort.

The next day started as overcast as well so me and my sister went at sea to get the sun.

45 minutes later we were back with the sun :D and it stayed sunny and 30'C for the rest of the week.

The day after, D's sister and her boyfriend went back at sea to make sure it was going to stay.

And they succeeded as well.

Here is me and D's at dinner one night.

Second part coming up later ;)
(I still got a shit load of laundry to do)

Thank you to my guest posters ;) You kept my blog alive while I was gone.

I missed you :)

Saturday's hot guy #21

Hello, everyone! I'm Andhari from Insomniac Lolita and I'm taking her post this Saturday as ambassador to Hottieville. That's right, while she's enjoying her weekend away, pleasuring your eyes is still the main priority.

I always find myself to be an appreciator ( sometimes a creepy one at that ) of God-gifted beauty, especially in men. I applaud them ( and print their pictures for my collection -- ahem! ) if they have yummy sculpted body with muscles in all the right place, smoldering eyes, and sexy lips. And if they have radiating confidence, clean, and know how to dress themselves? HELLO. PUT A RING ON IT.

So when Caro asked me to pick a hot guy for this week, I made a long list. Narrowed it to 10 then 5 then 3, closed my eyes, eenie-minie-mo-ed it ( I can't pick! I'm GREEDY!), and the result is...JESSE METCALFE.

Or as I would prefer to call.. John Tucker. My goodness, almost every chick flick fan I know would prefer calling him that. Remember how sexy he was as a bad basketball star in John Tucker Must Die?

Speaking of bad boy, he played the role often. He was this younger guy Eva "BonyCougar" Longoria cheated his husband with in Desperate Housewives.

More about him? He was born in California,32 years ago, but grew up in Connecticut. He's a mixed of French, Italian, and Portuguese. His hobbies are basketball, sculpting,piano, and golf. He used to work in landscaping business before seriously did professional modeling, which led him to acting. You can read more here.

Have a very happy Saturday!

Saint Patrick's Day

Hey Ladies & Gents (any Gents out there?) it's me Carrie from Just a Girl.
Ms. Caro, was so kind and asked if I would be a guest blogger while she is off getting her tan on in beautiful CUBA (ehh.. I am totally jealous!).

She let me choose from a few topics, and my pick was..........


St. Patty's Day is one of my top 3 favorite celebrations. (1st of course Halloween, 2nd is Christmas)

I am Irish, actually I am Irish and Indian with a little mixture of some other's. But those aren't important. Although I don't have the red hair, I had bleach blonde hair and was blessed with fair skin. My brothers and sisters on the other hand, had more or the Indian heritage in them... dark hair and dark complexion.

Anyhoo... enough about my mutt of a heritage and family life...

lets get into some St. Patty's Day facts shall we.....

~Saint Patrick was known as a Patron Saint in Ireland died on March 17th.

~ The first St. Patty's Day Parade was not held in Ireland, but in Boston in 1737.

~Did you know up until the 1970's Ireland had a law to where all Pubs were closed on March 17th? (say.. what!)

~Did you know people in Ireland consider the color green to be unlucky? Blue was actually the color of Vesiments.

~1,883,200,000 (that's 1.9 billion) pints of Guinness are consumed around the world every year.

~ An Irish toast: “May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.”

~ The number 3 is Irelands magic number

~ When over in Ireland... if you need to use the restroom Men look for *FIR* on the restroom door... Women should look for *MNA*

And after many hours (okay not many hours) of googling trying to find some fun facts of St. Patricks Day, I have come to the conclusion... there really aren't that many! BLARNEY!

So I leave you with well wishes on this 3rd favorite "Holiday" of mine...... get your blue food coloring out... drink TONS of green beer, and make sure you wear green! =)

Oh, and take TONS of pictures while you act a fool! =)

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Hello all readers! This is Tiara from littletiara here, first off, I’d thank Caro for giving me the chance to do this guest blogging in her fabulous blog while she’s away on a very very fun vacation. She better bring me home some souvenirs or… *insert devil smirk here*

Okay, so Caro asked me to say about taboo things, which I’m not really an expert of. After digging my brain, rolling on my bed and eat chocolates for days (those are the rituals to get some inspirations, you know?), I finally remember I have one! Not really my experience, though. It’s my friend’s story.

Imagine yourself, walking in an empty road, yeah walking, in a broad daylight, notthe creepy dark night walking in an alley, no, you are enjoying the scenery and fresh air and all, suddenly, out of nowhere, a guy in motorcycle passes you by. Of course you won’t pay much attention to him, until he stops his motorcycle before you and open his pants and shows you his “thing” (you know what I mean right?).

Yeah! Exhibitionist!


Now tell me how would you react?

If it were me, I would be so freaked out and maybe run as fast as possible, leaving that guy happy. Because that’s what he aimed, to scare people. But what else I can do?

Oh, don’t worry my friend knows the solution.

So she stopped there, stared at the guy (or his Mr. P? I don’t know) and cooly said, “Man that’s small…” and casually continue her walk.

Now, that’s my girl! Apparently, I have a really cool friend. Haha.

Poor little Mister and his little Mister P hahah.

Hello Carozone fans! While our lovely Caro is away, I thought I would
stop by and keep you company. I'm KS, from While We're Waiting.. and
our topic today involves needles.
But, in my opinion, the only good needles there are.... tattoo needles.

I suppose I surprise people when they find out I have quite a few
tattoos (the count is up to seven...). Not sure why... maybe I don't
look like a "tattoo person?" Although, I've always wondered what that
Anyway, my most recent additions were some text on my feet. A few of
you who stop by my place now and then have asked what my tattoos

On one foot: I took the road less traveled by
Other foot: And that has made all the difference.

It's the last line from my favorite Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken."

Since my footsies have gotten inked up, I've been itching for another
tattoo. It's pretty addicting... and I think I want more text. My
challenge is where to put them. My future career is a bit conservative
so my options are limited.

Here are some text tats I think are pretty fantastic...

How about you? Any tattoos? Thinking about getting one?

10 Useless Things That I Can't Live Without

When Caro asked me to be a guest blogger for her, I asked if she had a specific topic she wanted me to write about. She sent me a list of topics to choose from, and I finally settled on "10 Useless Things That I Can't Live Without."

I picked the topic, thinking that it would be pretty easy to come up with a list. Once I sat down to start writing, I realized that it was going to much harder than I originally thought!

My first issue was the phrase "Can't Live Without" because let's face it, the only things we really need to live are food, water, and oxygen. So, I had to improvise a bit and modify that part of the stipulation to "Prefer Not to Live Without."

My second issue was with the phrase "Useless Things" because what exactly does it mean for something to be useless? Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines useless as: having or being of no use: a: ineffectual {a useless attempt} b: not able to give service or aid : inept. Based on that definition, there are very few things in the world that are truly useless. So, again, I had to improvise a bit and modify this to "Things That Serve No Important Purpose."

So, I preset to you Eyegirl's list of "10 Things That Serve No Important Purpose That I Prefer Not to Live Without":

1. Hair Dye ~ I think I saw my natural hair color for the blink of an eye a few years ago for the first time since I was about 10 years old. It was a scary sight! I am constantly dying my hair a new color with every visit to my hair stylist. It is an instant pick me up, and I certainly wouldn't want to live my life without being able to color my hair.

2. Make Up ~ I have had so many men tell me how glad they are that they aren't women so they don't have to spend so much time getting ready every day. I always respond that I love being able to put on make up every day! You can hide flaws, and bring out different aspects of your appearance. I think it is amazing what you can do with it all, and I'm so thankful that I am a woman and get to wear make up every day!

3. High Heels ~ I have an enviable shoe collection, and nothing makes me feel more attractive and put together than slipping my feet into a pair of 4 inch red heels for a night on the town!

4. White Noise Maker ~ I have a white noise maker next to my bed that I turn on every night as I fall asleep. Whenever I am traveling, and don't have my white noise to lull me to sleep, I actually have a hard time drifting off to dream land.

5. Orange Peeler ~ When I was a kid, my mom had an orange peeler. It was basically just a plastic stick with a little diamond shaped point at one end that could be used to cut the peel of an orange into strips for easy removal. I few years ago I finally found one and purchased one for myself. I love it! Can I peel an orange without it? Sure. But, it is such nicer to do it with my little orange peeler!

6. Cosmo ~ That magazine is my guilty pleasure! Sitting down to read it is a great stress reducer for me. Within minutes of opening the cover, I'm whisked away to another world where everyone is sexy and glamorous and always having fun. It's a great place to visit when I need to escape my own life for a while.

7. Naval Ring ~ I got my naval pierced when I was 19, and by now it is just a part of me. The few times I've had it out in my life it just looks so odd to me, and I find myself overwhelmed with that naked, "something is missing" feeling.

8. My Blog ~ I love blogging so much! It really serves no important purpose, but I certainly would never want to live without it. It is so much a part of me that going without it would probably feel like severing a limb.

9. Office Organization Gadgets ~ I'm a bit OCD, and own about every organizational gadget possible from pen holders and paperclip holders to drawer organizers and filing cabinets. Could I function without all of these little gizmos to keep my stuff in? Of course! But, I much prefer having them.

10. My Engagement/Wedding Ring ~ Obviously a ring really serves no purpose beyond looking pretty, but I would never want to live without mine because of all that it represents and all that it means to me.

So, what about you? What are some of the things that you wouldn't want to live without?

Girly girl crush

Yes I have a crush, a big crush on a star *blushing*

His name is Jaroslav Halak. He is the goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens.

Even if I have a boyfriend and that Jaroslav is almost 8 years younger than me, I cant stop thinking about him like a teenager *giggles*

There's a little something in his eyes I love so much.

I wanted to go buy a Montreal Canadien's bikini just to get him to sign it.
I blow kisses at the TV each time I see him. I wish I could meet him.

Do you have a superstar crush?
