I'm on the hunt

For a chiropractor, mosquitos AND something to spend my birthday money on

Item ONE is due to several items
  • Sleeping on an air matress
  • Beating my head against a wall at work (not literally, just figuritively) - head still feels bruised though
  • Watching BF and his BFF move all our heavy furniture: i call them sympathy pains
Item TWO is that leaving the front door open while moving things out of the house has caused bugs to make their ascension into our happy home, they lie in way till we are thiclose to sleep then they buzz around our ears - my new nickname is Donna the Mosquito Slayer

Item THREE is my immense need to spend the $ I got for my birthday and am experienceing that crazy phenomenon...

You know the one

Where you can find nine trillion things you want when you have no money

But can't find a single thing when you have some!

More on that in a bit

Just want to do some random shout outs here at L, R, T

First off i want to thank Monica & Christina for what is becoming our weekly jaunt to a local restaurant for drinks and vent sessions after the gym - not sure i could survive without them

Thanks to all the friends who read the blog and now feed their children Green Smoothies and Breakfast cookies - Sara even came up with the ingenious idea of using shaped molds to make your cookies in, love it!

I'm super proud of Nadeen for changing her eating habits SO much!  I might have been a bit of a pushy brat when i told her i wanted to see some veggies and whole grains in her lunch and she shows up yesterday with home made salsa, whole grains and tuna fish packed with veggies - WAY to GO!!!

Thanks to my mum for cleaning me out space in the cupboard at their house in preparation for my arrival to ensure i never have to go a day without chia seeds :o)

Shout out to Katie and Erin who mentionned they can't read my posts on their iPhones so i've changed the font colours - hope it works girls!

And to everyone who tells me that i should be an
  • Nutritionist

  • Professional blogger
Thank you, for understanding my passion and while it might not pay the bills right now, maybe one day i will be graced with the ability to do something for a living that i can love with my whole heart

I'll tell you a secret: My dream job is to occasionally travel, photograph and write for a living while having a fitness centre that no one feels intimidated to attend that sells lululemon - its my BHAG (thats lululemon code for Big Hairy Audaicous Goal)

Until then thank you for reading and commenting on the blog, on facebook, on twitter and in person, it means the world to me!!!

My SHAG (Small Hairy Audacious Goal) is to make sure everyone has tried and loved a green monster :o)

I'm sure you are more then willing to take it off my hands

But i want to buy something fabulous with it


So i buy a Tiffanys bracelet and matching earings?
