I'll admit I watched a few episodes of American Idol this season. The finale was last night and I'm just wondering if anybody else was thinking what I was thinking....

I would trade legs with Carrie Underwood any day!

Some years the Athabasca River provides cool views for residents here during a phenomenon called River Break. Some years they experience a dynamic river break — which didn't happen this year — where the ice piles up and pushes through the Fort McMurray area as one giant glacier, bouncing off the sides of the river. Pretty cool. This means Spring is coming. Here was my river break experience.

Now we are enjoying spring with beautiful blossoms around the city...and no more ice.

I'm not gonna lie, the weather conditions here are wreaking havoc on my skin. It's windy. It's dry. It's dusty. Luckily, I found an amazing online retail store called Nature's Basin that specializes in selling natural/organic skin care. *For all my hippie friends, that means this certified natural facial care is free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants, and is derived from mineral oils.*

I ordered the Weleda Cold Cream. The box says it is for dry and very-dry skin...that's me right now. I put it on at night and my face is so happy in the morning. It seriously adds a huge amount of much needed moisture without causing break-outs (yeah my face still breaks out sometimes....what the heck am I not done with my teenage years?!)

The site offers more than just face cream though. They have 20 organic brands with over 400 products to choose from including beauty productsnatural make up, and organic makeup. They offer 30 day lowest price guarantee, 90 day unconditional money back guaranteeFree shipping on orders over $49, and free samples with every order (2 samples, 5 samples for orders $90+).

Pretty sweet, eh. So you can check them out on facebook or just find out more about them at their site here.

I am not saying I am perfect, but I am pretty sure
some DMVs give out drivers licenses like a bank hands out lollipops.

There are SO many ridiculously good-looking actors on day time television. Too bad they have to be on during my gym time and for the fact that soap operas are lame.

It's was just Mother's Day. While being pregnant is an incredibly awesome thing, skimping on purchasing maternity clothes is not so awesome sometimes.

I wish I could take credit for having taken this photo (instead I found it here).

I mean, just because you're expecting doesn't mean you should settle for outdated or poorly fitting clothes.

A cool place to shop for cheap maternity clothes at affordable prices is Kiki's Fashions. Go ahead and like them on facebook (where you can often find deals to shop their online store.)

Don't worry, I have no reason to shop for maternity clothes yet...I just wanted to pass the fashion tip. While the lady pictured above might think she is looking the best she can in her maternal bliss, there are better alternatives like this photo. 
Happy Mother's Day.

I'm pretty sure my heaven will be full of carbs. But I'll still have a rockin hot bod and walk around in a bikini all day because's heaven!
