D Is For Dream (Come True)

I spoke about my dad(s) last round so I figured this round we have to do something different. Don't doubt that I miss my dad(s) every day. Not a day goes by that they, (at least 2 of them), I think of constantly. The other one, not so much.
Now onto what does matter in life, those precious moments that come once in a lifetime.
One of my dreams came true this past weekend. It was my birthday present from the hubby.... along with other stuff you'll hear about in a second...
Vince and myself, Dec 8 at the ACC
I went to my very first Toronto Maple Leaf game!
This is huge!!!
I am a big fan. I bleed blue. I love this team more than any team from any sport, anywhere! Seriously.
The hubby took me to Toronto, we had a nice dinner at Canyon Creek on Front St, which was friggin' awesome I tell ya, then we headed to the Air Canada Center for the game!
The energy of this place is amazing. It is something I can't even put into words, it's just an experience you have to have for yourself if you are a fan of hockey too.
I took a little video of the energy of the place after Toronto opened up the scoring.



I wasn't tipsy at this point, but by the end of the game my toes were tingling... lol.. it was a great night!
The prices of tickets, the jersey hubby bought me with my favorite leaf on it, (#43 Kadri), the beer, the Go train to and fro, dinner... that's what makes it a once in a lifetime experience. Birthday or no birthday.
It's a night I will never forget.
We had box seats with a waitress, it just doesn't get any better than that... LOL
I saw my favorite team live, my memories will hold tight to that one. I don't care that they lost that night. I care I was there to watch them lose.

So there's Freda, the hockey fanatic. No, scratch that. I'm just a Leaf fan.

What's your favorite sport or team?

  2. Tennis for me. One on one, slogging it out for 4 hours in a grand slam 5 setter. Now that's tough.

  7. That's awesome, Freda! I'm a huge hockey fan too. I love my hometown Jets but I'm also a fan of the Oilers and Canucks. I'll actually cheer for all Canadian teams at some point during the season except maybe the Flames lol One day I'd like to be able to catch a game in every Canadian rink.

  8. I have Canadian family that are hockey fans, ...but I'm pretty much an Arkansas Razorbacks girl, even though they've had a terrible season this year in football.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.
