Fill in The Blank Friday

1.   My favorite place i've ever traveled to is     France! I've been to Paris, the french Alps and Provance. All of those trip were magical. I also loved Hawaii, Amsterdam, and Mexcio   .

2.    Greece or Bali     is somewhere I'd love to go someday.

3.  I pass the time on a plane (or bus, or car ride or train) by     listening to music and daydreaming. I get motion sickness if I try to do anything else     .

4.  My three must-haves when I travel are     iPOd    ,    meticulously organized small bag of everything I may need   and     water and snack  

5.  My favorite travel companion is    my amazing momma. She's super organized and takes care of everything. When I travel with my husband I have to be the "mom"  .

6.  The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling is    when I was crossing the boarder from France to Belgium on the bus, the bus driver called me off the bus all by myself. I thought there was a problem with my passport, but as it turns out he just wanted to let me know I owed him a cleaning fee for puking on the bus. Most of it got in the baggie... but some dripped. LOL  .

7.  The most exotic food I've ever tried while traveling is    chicken eye ball on a survival course in Kananaskis Country, Alberta  .

8.  If I could live anywhere else, I'd live in    Hawaii. I absolutely LOVE everything about Hawaii  .

9.  I have been to    six 
states in the U.S.

Fill in The Blank Friday (aka Thursday Night)

1.   The last thing I ate was     a Tums. This pregnancy heart burn is out of control  .

2.   The last song I listened to was    "Calgary"- Bon Iver. Bon Iver goes so nicely with the snow. (And I'm from Calgary!)      .

3.  Using the letters in my name I can spell    (Vanessa): ass...... that's all I got     .

4.  If I had to dress in one color for the rest of my life I would pick     black. Slimming and timeless. Also kind of bad ass   .

5.  If you were to look in my bag right now you'd find    wallet, lint roller, makeup, iphone, ipod,bus tickets, recycling I brought with me instead of throwing in the garbage, Book "A Game of Thrones"- George R. Martin, sketchbook, pens, coffee travel mug and hand cream for winter dryness .

6.  When I finish filling in the blanks I'm going to    going to make some hot chocolate  .

7.  My all time favorite song to dance to is    Right now it's "Sirens"- The Pack A.D., but it changes daily  .

Girly Winter Movies

 These are my favourite films to watch curled up under a blanket under a pile of kitties, while snowflakes drift through the streets outside. This list is for the winter that remains after the glitz and glamor of the holidays, when all you are left with is cold, less money, and a whole year ahead of you. Slightly melancholy with much needed humor.
If Wes Anderson was a season he'd be winter. Or at least fall. This movie is perfect.

Snowy, moody, and with lots of vintage. Loves it.
This is also a good one to watch while pregnant. Clearly.

Ryan Gosling... I've loved you since Breaker High. Any thing you touch is gold.
Classic. Makes me want to wear long layers of skirts and petticoats and have feasts by the crackling fire.
To remind you that spring is just around the corner!

Just cuz

Shows you all the fun things you could be doing while it's snowing outside!

Enjoy this miserable season in style ;)

And if you'd rather dream of summer to come, check out my Girly Summer Movies!

What Makes a Happy Ness

 It sure has been a while since I've updated you with some Happy Ness. I was way to busy having fun and getting ready for the arrival of the little minnow currently swimming around my uterus. We find out Saturday if it's a girl or boy! The nursery is also being painted and carpeted this weekend!! Ahh! I'm getting so freakin excited I can hardly stand it! We've really being going through every inch of our home and organizing and tidying like mad. I think we're both in nesting mode. I feel a lot better now that we have things coming together. It was uncertain whether or not we were going to stay in our current home or move up island for a possible job for my husband. Now that we've decided to stay in Victoria I feel a huge weight of indecision lifted. I need to have a tentative plan for the next year otherwise I get anxious. I don't mind changing up the plan as we go, but I like to know where I'll be living at least! Especially with the baby on the way. I need to put some roots down. We've been in our home for 2 years this May (when the baby's due!!), and we've really come along way in decorating, functionality and comfort. It really feels like our home now. It's just too much fun adding the baby into our zoo of a home.

I'm also beginning plans on turning our basement suite which we rent out, into an eco friendly daycare! There's a lot of work to do to get it ready, but between my creativity, my husbands handiness, and our very helpful family we'll have it ready to be opened by September 2012! Which gives me about 4 months with just our baby before going back to work. I'm already looking forward to opening the daycare and working again. I adore children! I'm so glad that my work allows me to be home with our child, surrounded by other kids in a creative, eco play land!

Life is sure exciting right now. Good things are coming. Good things are already here!
Even through the sore back, heartburn, random nausea, and extreme fatigue I'm still smiling big from ear to ear.

Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream.....
Me, being a bad ass. what a dork.
