Fun at the Falls

How are you doing on this lovely September day


I mentioned last week that I would be 

travelling to

Niagara Falls, Ontario last Friday

with my ball team

Take a look at this beautiful sight


In person the sound of the rushing water
and the intensity of the crowds


two lovely ladies enjoying the outdoors

Once we settled into our rooms 
we waited for all to arrive

Later we descended on the strip for
a super-fun
and well executed
Scavenger Hunt

The lovely lady on the right in the photo above
executed something that 
only her brainchild and organizational skills 
could pull off

So much fun
It really is amazing when a group of highly
competitive women hit the streets with a challenge
Look out, those poor tourists did not know what hit them

Needless to say
we had a blast

We were given clues to various attractions
 around the Falls
and we had to verify the answers with a photo

Below is a sampling of the sights 
we took in during this world wind adventure

When we arrived back at the rooms
in the manner 
not unlike the the Amazing Race

This fabulous work of art was waiting for me

A giant cooler basket full and I mean full of candy
all hanging from individual posts
all labelled within a star
all of my favorites
Blown away I was

Get a load of these
Our resident party planner, scavenger hunt
organizer extraordinaire
at it again

Cheesecake pops, hand formed, dipped and wrapped

Individual Neon cupcakes in jars

Oh my goodness, she is amazing 
if I did not express my immense gratitude

Thank you so much for all the time 
effort you expended to make this
the bestest birthday ever

Dinner in a tasty Italian Resto
before we hit the town
to dance till we drop

You cannot fake these smiles of JOY!!!

(That's me on the left)

No photos of the casino
and absolutely no photos
of the ladies getting their 
grove on at 'The Wrinkle Ranch'
dancing like it was 1999

A successful weekend, we cannot wait for next year!


Enjoy yourselves
 with those that bring 
YOU JOY !!!!

Peace Love and Hugs

Fall is just around the corner

It was a chilly one last night
Have you turned on your furnace yet?

I love the cozy
 layering of clothes at this time of year

What could feel better 
than wrapping yourself in a delightful scarf

Layering a pair of fabulous boots over some jeans
or below tights with skirts

The cuddly feeling of a handmade oversized cardigan

just kidding

These are the lovely items that make me smile right now


What items bring you JOY
 when the Seasons change?


 Peace Love

Half Century

by , in

No matter who you are or where you live

 we all have something in common

Give up….did you even try to guess…really…

We all came to this world the same way
we are all born on a specific date
because of that 
we all have one special day a year

Our Birthday

Well, that day, for me, is coming up on Friday

Usually, I don’t like to mention my birthday to people
yes, I know, I’m social, I’m outgoing

 I am also, private and a bit shy and don’t like the spotlight placed on me, more, kind of a background girl 
(fine, a loud background girl)

It’s just that, well, this is a pretty big one 
the big half-century….seriously….half-century

OMG…how did I get this old!!

I am going with my ball team on Friday morning 
to Niagara Falls, Ontario
to hang with the girls 
laugh our faces off 
scavenger hunt
gamble a bit at the casino 
maybe shake our thing at a club
 (you know, for mature women) 
and just chill
 pass out
 and drive respectably home
 in the morning  

The perfect way to spend my special day
 in my opinion anyway!

How did you spend your special day this year 
or what plans do you have
 to raise the roof in 2012?

Peace Love 
Huge Birthday Hugs Everyone!!

As this glorious season comes to a close

I trust you enjoyed yourself this Summer
and had the opportunity to experience all kinds of fabulous
and exciting adventures
or at the very least laugh out loud more than once

We have been busy

I have been playing baseball

attended a 5 day fitness conference
visited  friends
family and just plain relaxed
all while taking in the magnificent weather
that we were fortunate enough to experience here in Ontario

I know that many of you have not been quite as fortunate

Mother Nature is going a bit crazy right now 
and I hope all of you are safe
and your families are doing well

The remainder of September is going to be a busy one

Keep smiling and see you soon!!


Peace Love
& Hugs
