Modeling Debute?

Category: Journal

IS this my first modeling debute or just my .1 seconds of fame. This summer i was given the opportunity to do a photo shoot for new local sub division. Apparently i had the "look" they were looking for whatever that means. Anyways it was a lot of fun and the money was awesome, it took an hour and was over before i had to get to work and i had made more money than i would working all day. Hopefully i get the opportnuity to do some more in the future as it would be nice to have a little extra cash.

CLick for full size!

Unfortunately this is the only copy i have from the current ad scanned in from a magazine and was the first i had seen of the shoot just last week.

My new bathroom

Category: Journal

Wow!  What an amazing husband I have to have worked so hard while I was away.  Troy surprised me with a new bathroom in our downstairs.  He also put together the sauna he got me for Christmas and decorated that room like a spa. I spent the last 3 weeks in Edmonton, first for Christmas with Troy as well, then to stick around for Baby Shelby.  Troy flew home after Christmas and was apparently quite busy!  I feel very spoiled at how much he loves me and how much he did for me.



We're all doing well – always good to go home after being away for a long time.  Well, the boys are both pretty sick, but that's part of life this time of year.  Rhys is starting to crawl – he frequently gets frustrated as he tries to reach something and can't quite do it. Sometimes he ends up going backwards, sometimes he falls on his face, and sometimes he actually makes it.  It's fun to watch them discover new things.  Tristan continues to surprise me daily with the things he says.  I am hearing a lot of myself in him and have learned to be very careful in what I say.

Happy New Year

Category: Journal

Happy New Year to all!  We brought in the new year with a new family member – Congratulations Daralynn and Sheldon on the birth of a sister for Annika.  Baby Wiens was born at 10:25 pm January 1st.  6 lbs 3 oz, 18.5 in long.  Daralynn is doing well and Baby is patiently awaiting her name.  We will keep you posted.

I am still in Edmonton with the boys – here to help Daralynn out with Annika and to visit friends and family.  I do miss Troy as he went home to Kelowna Tuesday morning, but it's good to be here as well.  He has so many projects I'm sure he'll be kept busy over the next 2 weeks while I'm here.

I am looking forward to spending lots of time with Daralynn and also some other friends and family.  Tristan and Rhys are doing well – Rhys got up on all 4s yesterday in an attempt to crawl.  He's not crawling, but he seems pretty good at moving around a room. 

Here's a couple pictures from the hospital.
