Rainy Day Wonderings

Hey Guys!!

Happy Rainy Day Wednesday!!

So I wanted to share some big news with you all!!

I got a continuous teaching contract!!


Now...what does this mean??

That I don't have to apply for multiple jobs, stress, worry, and think about moving!!

I cannot tell you how excited and relieved I am to be able to continue to teach at the amazing school that I do with the amazing division that I'm in!!

Now I'm wondering...what should I put on the walls now that I'm going to be in my place for another year??

Any home decor sites or stores that have cute wall art or pillows or anything??

Thanks in advance!!

Why I Didn't Make Any Resolutions This Year!

Happy New Year y'all!!

I love how I say that like I'm from the South when I'm a born and bred Alberta girl!


So as you can see this blog post isn't going to be about the resolutions that I've made. 

People quit resolutions all the time...

This year...I'm a goal digger!!

I have goals, not resolutions. Goal are things you work towards, you fumble with and you keep readjusting. 

I think this year it's a mentality for me. 

I just have to be consistent day after day and I'll get to my goals. 

My overarching goals are to lose 55 lbs in 2017, travel to Seattle, Portland, and Calgary, as well as keep my job as a Grade 4 teacher...which kinda isn't overly up to me, but still! 

I'm excited to keep going on my journey. I lost 17.5 lbs in 2016 and I think I can amp it up in 2017. 

I will be using Beachbody workout programs, healthy choices and constant monitoring of my goals. 

I cannot wait to see myself this next year!!

What are your goals?

'Using What I Have' Challenge!!

Hey Guys!!

So about a year ago, I had signed up to do a budget friendly life challenge thingy online. 

One of the tips that the host suggested was to eat from your cabinets.

So shop your stash.

So last night as I was thinking about my week ahead and pay day being on Wednesday I thought to myself 'hmm...I wonder if I can only eat stuff that I have in my house right now until Wednesday!'

So here we go!!

This morning I had a coffee from the Keurig pods that I had, two eggs in the fridge and a slice of bread with margarine that I far so good!!

Kind of worried about lunches and dinners but then I remembered that I had just gotten a four pack of deep dish make at home pizzas from my friend Kristen!!

Pizzas for days!! Yay!! Now here's hoping I can keep this trend going!!

I'll keep you all updated on my FaceBook page: Key of Marie :)

See ya there!!

Catching Up!!

So I just realized that I have been in my new place for more than a month and I still haven't blogged about it?!?


The craziness of unpacking, school, students, and life has just taken over. 

I have some decor up, some leaning against walls because I am unsure of how I want to mount it.

I have candles in every room, which I love. 

I have a patio door that I can open and let the breeze blow through which is lovely on these fall days.

I have a great bed which I love to spend time in. 


My own coffee in the morning is great because the only drive thru here is A&W and it's not the best. 

I have photos around but I'd love more.

I've had a few visitors and welcome more. 

Even after the first day this place felt like mine. It was my little space in the world that I could retreat to and decorate by myself.

I dislike being away from here. I yearn to be back. It's comforting and me. 

I love it!!

Can't wait to talk more about it!!


Friday, 5 August 2016


As I sit here listening to Telus' 'on hold' music, I think 'what a perfect time to blog!!'.

So as the title states, I'm moving!! Back to Lac La Biche!!



Super excited to move into my own place and blog about decorating, teaching and life in general. 

I'm sure with all of the quiet time that I'll have that I'll have lots to talk about and express :)

It definitely helped me when I lived out in the boonies down by Bragg Creek :).

Just my way of expressing myself :).

Also, if anyone has super cute fun way to decorate a rental space that would be greatly appreciated!!

Love you all and can't wait for you to join me on this new adventure!!

Why I Loathe Summer

Controversial title..I know..

But the heat..and the sticky feeling that your skin gets and you can't take off any more clothing and you can't sleep...and everything is inferno lol.

Don't get me wrong, there are perks to the summer, but I'm a Fall/Winter girl any day. 

I like a cool breeze, I like wearing boots, I like not dying if I forget to order an ICED Caramel Macchiato...cuz that happened on Monday..

Another reason not a huge fan of summer?

As a wannabe teacher who isn't a teacher yet really, Summer is stressful.

I need two months of employment to get by but nobody wants to hire me because I'll be gone in..two months lol. 

So I'm left in this weird limbo type of thing where it's stressful but all of my friends are on break so we have to have fun..but I'm broke lol. 

So this is why Summer is stressful to me. Tomorrow maybe it'll be better and for sure there are things in this summer that I'm looking forward to. 

A cherished friends wedding.


And a trip out East to see a long lost friend.

I guess Summer isn't that bad after all.

March Madness!!

Hey guys and gals!!

So I just popped on here and noticed that I only did one New Year, New Loves for March!


So I've decided that tomorrow I am going to fill up 20 spots, instead of the normal 5 in order to catch up :). 

It was a crazy March with Spring Break and I'm ready to get back into my routine of blogging and YouTubing and everything else in my lovely life!! 

See you all tomorrow!!
