Walker Turned 5!!!

Walker turned five a few days ago and I wanted to post some pictures from the fun day.

I'm convinced that all you need to throw the perfect kids birthday is a slip and slide and some cake and ice-cream. We also threw in some presents, hat making and a pinata for good measure and we had a blast!

Walker showing off his pirate hat creation.

The favorite gift of the day. Thanks Grandma Hurren!!!

Everyone making their hats.

Rainbow cupcakes were a special request.

I'm not sure how but Luke got some major air everytime he went on the slip n' slide.
And I didn't get any pictures of Walker without his tongue sticking out!

Emma and Kael loved it too!

Happy Birthday Walker. We love you so much and it makes me sad to think you are already five and almost ready to go to Kindergarten. Please stop growing so fast!!!!

I finally got to go ocean fishing on my dad's boat a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing!!!!

I can't tell you how good it felt to be unreachable for a few days. No internet, no phone... it was heaven.

My awesome husband Mike was invited to go on the trip but when he couldn't because of work he suggested that I go instead. He offered to watch the boys for the week and I jumped at the chance.

Thanks Mike, I couldn't ask for a more selfless husband.

And while I did miss Mike and the boys I'd have to say that this was one of the most relaxing weeks I've ever had.

And so on to the photos...

This is where we ate, slept, played and relaxed for the five days we were out...

I was going to say a little something about each of the photos but frankly, I'm tired and there are way too many. I'll just let them speak for themselves.

CSN Stores Review

A few weeks back I was contacted by a representative of CSN Stores about doing a review for their website. Seeing as I'm a pretty small time blogger I was pretty excited for the chance to do a review. It's something I've been interested in doing for a while now! Okay, on to the review.

First I'll tell you a little about CSN Stores.

CSN Stores is comprised of over 200 websites. You read that right... 200!!! They offer everything from cookware to furniture to baby products to lighting to slipcovers and more. Pretty much if you need it, they have it.

As I was browsing their many sites trying to decide what I wanted to review I couldn't believe what was available, and even better, the prices were totally reasonable! They even say that if you find the same product for a better price anywhere online then they want to know about it! Cool huh?

The CSN Stores website was very user friendly and the customer service was great too. I recieved the product in the mail within a week, which is fast up here in Canada!

Every product has user ratings and customer reviews which really helped me in deciding what I wanted to get.

So on to the product that I ordered...

I decided to go with a knife set. The knife set we currently had was a gift from our wedding, eight years ago, and had seen better days. So I browsed the available options and decided on the Ronco -Six Star 20 Piece Cutlery Set with Ronco Rocker. You know, the knife set you see on T.V. that cuts through anything and everything!

This knife set is kind of spectacular. I got the 'Showtime' knife, the 'Ronco Rocker', a bread knife, a chef knife, a saw knife, a boning knife, a sportsman knife, a chop and serve knife, a cheese knife (maybe my favorite so far!), a cleaver, a utility knife, six steak knives, two paring knives and a pair of kitchen shears. So far I'm impressed. At first the knives appeared to be a little on the flimsy side but I've had no problems and actually like the light feel of them. My only complaint would be that in a set of knives of this caliber I would have thought an avacado knife would have been included. No such luck. Oh well!

So overall, I like the knife set and I thought that CSN Stores did a great job with their quality of service, prices, and customer service.

Happy shopping!!!


*****Disclaimer - While I was not paid directly to post this review, the knife set was a gift from CSN Stores.

Painting and Fishing!

I've been painting up a storm here but I'm not quite ready to share pictures. I was going to try to get things all finished by this weekend but I'm just not sure it's going to happen. I have two photo shoots tomorrow and one on Saturday and then I'm going to be gone all next week ocean fishing!!!

I've wanted to go out on my dad's boat for years and I'm finally getting a chance, thanks to my uber-skookum hubby. He's going to watch the boys during the day and work at night just so I can go fishing. How great is he?

Expect lot's of photos in the coming weeks!!!
