Opening Night for Stars for Saskatchewan - Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band


I had the privilege of watching my very first concert hosted by the Yorkton Arts Council. (Thank you Brenda!!!) As a mama to six children, a night out to enjoy a passion of mine was truly a blessing!

 The Yorkton Arts Council's mission statement is to "... provide(s) opportunities to engage in the arts through inspiration, education and entertainment." And that they did. The show tonight thrilled, educated and entertained the crowd!

Stars for Saskatchewan has an amazing line up this 2017-2018 year & I am looking forward to attending them all! Go check out them out and buy your tickets! ;)


Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band wowed the crowd tonight at the Anne Portnuff Theatre with their 'Oh Canada, We Sing for Thee'! Canadian Tour 2017. They have 28 shows planned from coast to coast. I'm glad Yorkton made that list! These beautiful, talented musicians and singers made us all proud to be Canadian. Tasteful humor in between songs had the crowd laughing out loud at times, and nodding in agreement at others. The cover tunes were brilliantly brought to life as Leisa Way donned attire that coordinated with the artists, and the band had the audience singing and clapping right along!

Each member brought a degree of uniqueness to the stage; voice, drums, piano, guitar, violin/fiddle, harmonica, wooden flute...it was truly enjoyable by people of all ages. Leisa, if you ever read this, it was a pleasure to meet with you. You have a beautiful heart! Good luck to the entire band on your next couple months of travelling throughout our beautiful country!

Thank you to the Yorkton Art Council for all the work that goes into these events. It really does make me proud to be apart of this city, and to know that we (the city) are privileged to have such a spectacular team and board members who make this come together each year.




























Cheers,

End of Year Post 2018...why not?!

HELLO BEAUTIES!
It's been a hot minute!

Lots has happened this year. I'll tell ya about it someday. Not today.

Today, I'd like to share a fun pastime with ya! After listening to Pastor Michael's sermon at Prairie Harvest Christian Life Centre yesterday morning, I was inspired to dive in with my Word of the Year (WOTY). I've done this for a many years now, but have slacked this year due to some health issues.

Pastor Michael shared some 2018 top New Year Resolutions. He remarked that out of all the resolutions (with the top 3 being --> lose weight, stop smoking, & learn a new skill!), no one said they wanted to grow closer to God. That made me stop and rethink my own personal "GOALS" not resolutions for the upcoming year!

1. GET HEALTHY
2. DRINK MORE WATER
3. PAY OFF DEBT

I went home and thought hard on a new set of goals I wanted...

1. GROW CLOSER TO GOD

Trim Tuesday Talks - Let's talk white bread!

Page 242 is a game changer. Low Carb bread has been revolutionized by the Trim Healthy Mama sisters!
What am I talking about? Wonderful White Blender Bread! WWBB as you'll see it floating around the world wide web.
I was definitely skeptical trying out this new recipe found on page 242 of the new cookbook Trim Healthy Table. I've had some blunders in the kitchen with low carb recipes....although I am definitely getting the hang of it now!! Really, when I started THM back in '13 I really hated trying to make a low carb anything work....bread, cookies, cakes...but now?? As long as the budget allows, I LOVE BAKING THIS STUFF! {sweets, breads, etc}
This WWBB stayed fresh in my fridge for 5 days, yes 5, without spoiling...it lasted that long because 1. it was only me eating it....sorry not sharing! and 2. I wanted to have enough to last me the week for quick breakfast options and lunches!
I used this bread for toast with eggs, grilled cheese sandwich, toast with peanut butter for a …

Local Fashion Show of the Season

Sarah Jakubiec of LoSa Chic Boutique & Megan Propp of Pulse Apparel here in Yorkton, hosted an amazing fundraising event last evening....the cause? October is cancer awareness month and all the proceeds went to the Canadian Cancer Society and a precious little girl named Serenity who is fighting this battle. How cool is that when local businesses get together and come up with such a fantastic plan to help lighten the load for families!? Hats off to both of you and everyone who participated with this event!



Roughly 50+ ladies gathered in a shop on Broadway (next to LoSa) for a night of fun, food, & a fashion show! The models strut their stuff on the "catwalk" featuring attire from both stores. Raffles and a silent auction also played a part in helping Serenity and her family out with various expenses that come with treatment and travelling.

The theme for the evening was Business Casual & Casual. The outfits were tasteful and sophisticated...flower prints, faux leath…
