 Once Upon a time is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week.

 Eduardo!!! Our costumes!!! A video!!!

I was almost in L.A. for this photoshoot as our costumes got stuck in customs. In memphis. Why were they in memphis who knows. I had a hotel booked and flights booked and was just waiting to see if the costumes would get there on time. If not I had a suitcase packed with back up costumes to take on the plane with me. Sadly for me they arrived. No photoshoot for me. The crazy thing is the dressers Eduardo hired for the day to help are actually in the magazine!!! CRAZY!!!! I don't know if I would have liked that. The recognition - yes, but a photo of me next to these two cutie patooties hell no.

This week Hook is finally on. YAY! We like hook. Very excited for this episode to air...

I just bought one of these.  I've wanted one for awhile. This week I found out a friend at work swears by them so I broke down and bought it. I have no idea if it working yet but I'm thrilled our bedroom smells of "liquid sunshine" instead of dirty laundry and dog hair.  Now I'm obsessed with buying all the different oils for it. Tonight I'm trying the 'immune' blend and if I wake up even feeling a little less sore all over then I do today I'm considering it a miracle.

I've been doing Zumba pretty regularly since May and this was the first week I really felt unable to do it because my body hurts all over. This mornings class was really just an embarrassment. So to feel better I stopped at a burger place on my way home... heh heh way to go.

Blogging again. Only because I want something. Of course. I am running (well walking to be accurate) in the CIBC  run for the cure 5km. And I want you to donate.
A good friend of mine if currently battling breaast cancer. She had her second chemo treatment last week. Her hair is all gone. She is tired, nauseous, all those fun things. AND she is the mother of a 4 yr old girl and twin (almost) 1 yr old boys.
She still has many months of chemo to go, then radiation and then another surgery to recover from.
Please donate, any little amount helps. $5 even - just to show Julia your support. She seemed so excited today when I told her how many people had joined our team and how much money we had raised already . I've given myself a $500 goal and I'm still $100 away......

Donate here!

Thanks all.

Other then that not much new. Work work work. I can't wait for episodes to start airing to I can share some of the secrets I've been holding in for so long. AHHHH!!!! There is some beautiful costumes we have been making so far this year... beauuuuutiful.....

Puppies are good. Made them matching hoodies to wear for the run - now I need to work on my outfit!

Summer is finally here.
It's a long weekend.
Am I outside? No. What is the matter with me???

Oh well. Lots to do around the house.

Back at work on Season 2 of OUAT. Lots of fun new characters.It's great to be back with the gang. I love our designer. Had a fun fitting last week with one new boyfriend. Another one coming Tuesday and more on their way. My life is so hard! They are all my boyfriends. Our designer calls them boyfriend #1, #2, and #3, so on, it's hard to keep track of who is who sometimes. I have many many boyfriends. The designer often refers to us as "Hey You, and "The One Who Works Here" He isn't big on names. :)


Oh Uhmmm - did a mention  WE WERE NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY - OUTSTANDING COSTUME DESIGN!!!!!! And along with that some of our costumes from last year (that we could bear to part with ) are on display at FIDM in L.A. I would really like to fly down and see them.... 

Yay Eduardo!



On a completely different note: Had the BEST ice cream sandwich HERE the other day for lunch. Best ever. It wasn't cheap. $8.00 and worth every bite. Salted caramel. I think I may have to take my hubby there tomorrow to try it. So good.

Still waiting for the sunshine to come out to get proper photos for my otherwise finished etsy pattern. We tried to go fishing yesterday - there was one bite but more rain then anything. June 28th and I am still wearing my puffy coat from marmotpro......

I almost have a new pattern done for my etsy shop!!!!!

Soon my pretties.... I just need a sunny day so I can take some photos of the finished object. Well ok. Then it might not be soon as the sunshine doesn't seem to come around these parts much.
The Darkness is coming out with a new album in August. (my other future husband) I can barely wait...
Hot cakes.
I have the new single "every inch of you" on repeat. Along with every single other song of theirs.
 


And now I find out that Stars is coming out with a new album in Sept!!! I'm GOING TO EXPLODE.

Usually when ONE of these groups puts out a new album I have it on repeat/shuffle FOR A YEAR and quite happily listen to it every single day over and over and over. Heck - the darkness hasn't had a new album in almost 10 years and I still listen to them every single day. How am I going to handle two albums in the span of 2 months. Explode I tell you. EXPLODE.

My other future husband cracks me up. (read the tweets from the bottom up or it will make NO sense. It still might not make sense)




Torquil Campbell isn't my future husband but he still makes me pretty happy. I should find a role for him in my made up fantasy life. Best friend??? Co worker??? Guy who constantly writes me love songs and I keep breaking his heart??? He does write great break up songs....
He's been tweeting lyrics all week.... I love it.

Really you couldn't find two totally different bands. If you like The Darkness you probably hate Stars and vice versa. It's going to be difficult to come up with a playlist that works for both of them. Sigh. The things I have to deal with. My life is SO HARD.


I'm back... Procrastinating. It's been so long since I've blogged the format has al changed and I'm messing things up.... Here is a little video I made of our dolphin foot push photos. I'm pretending if you flip through them really fast you can pretend it is a movie.... video


So I was babbling about mexico. I could continue. But really. you can just go to the link attached to the photos and look at our entire vacation for yourselves. We had fun. It felt like we did alot more this time and I actually was able to relax. Last year I couldn't sleep because of the waves - THEY WERE SO LOUD. This year the waves weren't a problem but the bugs were. I would wake up with my legs covered in bug bites. My attempts at covering myself in bug spray before bed weren't successful so I would lie awake wondering if every little itch was another bug eating me.... 
There also was the problem of the crabs - they didn't keep me awake but I did find them humorous.

I'd hear tick scratch tick tick scratch and wake up to find them climbing the wall next to my bed! I didn't know crabs could climb walls with those weird stick legs... Minou loved chasing them around and somehow managed to not get her nose pinched.

I bought some fabulous stuff to hang on the wall but haven't taken any photos of it - I should. I will.  Soon.  Maybe after a nap.
More later. Maybe.

Wow. I'm still a lame blogger! Done the feature film I was on - I think. Every time I think I am done they call me back for one more day. I'm pretty sure I am done now. Had lots of fun with the stunt boys - maybe I few of them will show up on the next one. Giggled even more with the costume girls. Managed to collect a few bizarre stories about extras too. Remind me to tell you about the guy with shingles.... yup. Shingles....
 Now I am awaiting the start of season 2 of once upon a time.... YAY! We are back. Looks like we will be off to a busy start. YAY! I kind of feel like I have been at summer camp while working on the film - spending days outside in the woods, getting up early, eating off of paper plates. But now it is time to get back to school - a desk! Nice clothes! All my friends! I haven't bought any new pencil crayons and markers yet - there is still time....
 We managed to squeeze in a trip to Mexico to. Back to the same place we got married. I think we are going to make this an annual thing, we love it there sooo much. We went to Xel-Ha this time - TWICE. AMAZING. We zip lined into the water, snorkled, swam with dolphins, tubed through the mangroves, ate, ate some more, snorkled some more, ate even more...

We spent a day at the Coba ruins and climbed the big temple. It was hot - no big surprise. But I stupidly left my water at the bottom with my dad. When I got to the top I was a little freaked and decided I had to get down quickly and have my water. I think I should have gone up again as the temple was almost empty of people by the time we were leaving.

We spent alot of time on our secluded private beach. Boogie boarding and reading. I read 10 books while we were gone. I haven't read that much in years. Minou and Birdie were with us and seemed to enjoy it there much more this year. I think they understood that we weren't abandoning them there and were able to relax just like us. (Last year minou spent most of her time sitting in my suitcase - this year she would sprawl out in the sand and not pay any attention to our movements)

 oh... my attempt to blog has just been interrupted by the fact it is way past my bedtime... I'll try and come back. Maybe tomorrow. ;)

I'm done season 1 of once upon a time. Happy for the break but sad to wait and see if we are all going to be back next year.... Got our wrap gift of a Granny's mug and am quite enjoying snuggly mornings with the pups and a green tea latte.

But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm going to be a better blogger! HAH! I'm starting on a feature this week - on set, even worse hours then before...

--- I'll take a brief second here to thank Mig aka Bashful and the lovely Marmot people for my new jacket.... Sadly and embarrassingly as a costumer I should have gone a size larger but that hasn't stopped me from wearing it. It will probably come in very useful this week when we are outside all day and night..... (I'm in denial about how big I actually am....)---


Hmmmm.. what have I been up to since the last time...

- I've managed to squeeze in a few sewing projects over the past few months. A new dress for the wrap party. No photos though - it was too dark in the restaurant. Which is probably good for most people - there was free drink tickets ;)

- Got to see the Darkness a few weeks ago - well month ago now.... IT WAS AMAZING. I have such a huge crush on Justin Hawkins and his curly mustache. We had to get tickets from a scalper as the show was sold out before I even found out about it. I was such a goofy nervous nelly about it but all was good! Hope they don't wait another 10 years to come back. I'm anxiously awaiting there new album....


- The dictator and I are totally into the tv show Damages right now. JUST starting season 2 so don't give us any spoilers... Noah Bean who plays David conner was on Once Upon a Time and is absolutely the nicest guy in person. Sad he is dead and we probably won't be seeing much of him in season 2 Damages. Patty Hewes is so EVIL!

- We've been cross country skiing alot UNTIL RECENTLY - golf season has started... I've lost my husband again to the small white ball. I'm hoping we can get out to Whistler one more time - there was 40cm of new snow in one night this week!!!!!

- it's almost stanley cup time again - GO CANUCKS! Can't beliee they lost to the useless flames last night - accidentally typed lames - kind of the same thing.


The girls are both doing well... Minou is getting old and the vet wanted to pull her teeth two front teeth - I cried, such a horrible parent - but we had them cleaned and will see if they can last a little bit longer. There are some lovely ladies in town who will clean their teeth without putting them under.... Other then that nothing to exciting in their lives. We didn't sign up for agility after Xmas so they are terribly bored but it is at the WORST time - middle of Sunday afternoon.....




- We are headed back to Mexico in May and I am soooo looking forward to it... I will be ready for the break. This time I'm planning a trip to Xel-Ha - swimming with Dolphins!!! Hee hee!!! Bought an underwater camera to capture it all. CAN NOT WAIT.

That's all I can think of for now... I should stop procrastinating. I'm supposed to be exercising but I REALLY don't want to. I've put all the the pre wedding weight back on. YUCK. Stupid job where I have to eat out everyday.... Oh well....

Still alive. Still love my job.
Another Friday night being the last one at the office. Another Saturday full of naps. (3 to be exact although the last one wasn't very long as a certain chubby puppy wanted supper)

Not much new to type about.

Have been doing a few personal sewing projects that have been gathering dust for awhile. Some successful others are going straight in the bin. Nothing worth posting photos of. Hoping soon to have enough energy to get back in the wearable art game. I'm missing two years in a row and it makes me sad.

Been trying to Xcountry ski. I'm not very good at it but found out at a lesson in Whistler that it was partially due to the wrong equipment. Wrong skis and poles that were too long. I'm in the process of fixing that and when we go out next week I hope to see some improvement. I still managed to have a wonderful time last weekend. It's been so warm I was skiing in a tshirt! (Kinda hoped for a suntan but that was wishful thinking) I think my legs have finally recovered and the bruises are gone.

Bought Abba dance for my wii. SO MUCH FUN. No one has yet been witness to my amazing moves but I'm planning a show down in a few weeks with one of the ladies. The dictator is not allowed to be home.

Time for bed. Watch out for Melissa and I on the slopes. We don't know how to stop.
