I just want to take a couple minutes to update you on what I've been up too...fill you in on some contests...and complete a few tags that I have been given. This is a sort of "spring cleaning" post. So let's get to it, eh?
First off...we have yet to have purchased a new vehicle. The insurance on a newer vehicle would kick our tails so we are reworking some things to try and lower that. One thing we are hoping to do is access my driver history and put me as the primary driver. We'll see what that does. I'm also this close to submitting my Permenant Residancy paperwork. I have one more background check to do online. Last week I had more fingerprints done here in Canada and as well as a background check for here as well. We had to travel to a border crossing (a few hours away) to renew my visa so at least I'm legal here in Canada for another year!
The biggest news coming our way is that we bought another dog! That makes three. He flew over from England on Wednesday and Shane and I drove to Toronto to pick him up. His name is Jake. Here are a couple of photos of my hubby and our little friends.

While in Toronto, we had the chance to go to a big ol' mall there. I took my time browsing through William Sanoma, Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn. This PB had three levels!! I wanted to take photos of the displays but was afraid they would yell at me. Shame, I know. But I saw these really neat things...that just so happens that Homebody Holly blogged about recently. Wondering what I'm talking about? Head over to her blog. And you may just win her giveaway!! She's so kind! But hurry, you only have today at 6pm left.
I was tagged by Ruby at Ruby Two Shoes Design (check out that amazingly cute cards she makes!) tagged me to go to my 4th folder in my photos, choose my 4th picture and post it with some info all about it. So....
Unglamorous eh? That is the crawl space underneath of our house. And those are some old craft show signs. Hubby used to have to put those signs up around town advertising for the show. Now, there is a newer version of the sign but we are still stuck housing these bad boys. Why do I have this photo you ask? Well, I was taking photos of the water damage of our little flood from a few weeks ago.
Mrs. D Lightful (so many fun things going on at this blog!) also tagged me awhile back to do this similar tag, only I had to choose the seventh folder and the seventh photo. So....
This is positivly horrible! People, if I wasn't so honest, I would chosen a different photo. Unfortunatly, you get my hand with a rash! Haha, I broke out in this hideous rash the other day so I decided to photograph it for who knows why! I guess I was thinking if I happened to die or perhaps decide to sue a company (as if I would!) I would have proof. There you go, rash hand.
I think there are some more giveaways out there that I want to tell you about but at this second I can't remember! I'm going to go read all ya'll's blogs and then I may be back with some more contests. :) For now I'm sort of feeling lightheaded, so I'm heading off.
And just to let you know...I am in the process of writing a couple more fashion posts. So sorry for my absence lately and not being the best at keeping my blog up to date. You all are the best for bearing with me. Thanks so much!! -Mandi
