tricks/TREATS


Yum Yum Yum!
This is the Fraser Family Tradition of Ghosts in the Graveyard.  We have been making this for as long as I can remember.  Halloween holds a lot of food traditions for us, including this, candy apples and witches fingers cookies.  Oh how I love the sweets of Halloween.  Although I did not go out trick or treating (figured I am over that..), I have several sweet things in my life...


Thhhiiiiss Girl :)
I adore her.  She is simply great.  Her name is Casey Ford by the way...  She is sweet because she makes me happy and I am so proud of her.  She is attending Holland College and she loves it which makes me confident for my future choices that have to do with school.  She makes it seem so easy and she is loving her classes and she is doing so well in all of them.  I know she will always try her best to be there for me.  This is us at Colonel Gray the other night that we went to the Haunted Basement.  This is where us and our friends ate lunch most days.  This picture just tells me that everything will change, but love will remain the same.  So cheesy but I love yah girl!


Love is pretty darn sweet, enough said. :)


Megan Smith and Fall are two more sweet things...
She is sweeter than sugar and she just makes me smile.  Fall is the best.  I have decided I want my engagement pictures taken in the fall because it is so pretty!  I'll have to see how that works out with timing though...  A girl can dream!


He calles me a cutie.  I think it is sweet. :)

My weekend was good and I am a happy girl at the end of it!
Happpy Halloween!

Life is not always going to be liked.

Dinner at Pat and Willies, Tuesday night

Carving Pumpkins, Wednesday









Joking around with the boys...

Ladybug and a bird maybe?

Chocolate Covered Chips = love

Oh Roman Holiday...
I do not have a lot to say today, but this is what I have been up to the past few days.  Tuesday, Haig, David and I went to Paranormal Activity 2 and then out to eat at Pat and Willies.  Wednesday, after working all day, I went to church to help with achivement nights and then chilled with people for abit.  Around nine, Amanda and Drew came over to carve pumpkins with us.  Yesterday I worked from 10-3 then waiting for mom to pick me up.  Casey and I went to the Haunted Basement at Colonel Gray, then watched Eric's (Emily's cousin) Hockey game.  Then we went to the Mallett's to watch Greys with Nora.  When I got home last night I talked to Haig for abit and started to watch Roman Holiday.  I was falling asleep so I went to bed.  This morning I finished it while eating PEI's chocolate covered potato chips.  They are so divine.  Today, I am off to run some arrands with my mother and then I am working from 3-9.  Speaking of which, I need to go now...
Have a charming weekend.

Love is...

"Love doesn't make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile." - Elizabeth Browning


Love is what I am feeling right now.  Because I am feeling a lot of love left, right and center.  I have just had a great weekend.  The fun started on saturday.  I worked all day, with 7 returns from unsatisfied customers and I was very tired.  You may ask, how is this fun?  Well, I love my job and I love the people I work with, so I enjoyed working all day on saturday!  Saturday night Haig and David came down to Charlottetown for the night.  David went to Amanda's for a bit and Haig and I settled in and watched Paranormal Activity.  We also had some of our favorite snacks to go along with the movie which was great.  I was in the mood to watch a scary movie although this did disapoint me a bit.  Hopefully seeing the second one tomorrow in theatres will do the better trick.  (speaking of tricks, I am so stoked to go trick or treating this weekend)
Sunday we all went to church and had a relaxing afternoon.  For dinner on sunday we had tacos, they are my favorite.  David and Amanda came over late sunday night for a game of scattegories, a walk to the park and a game of truth or dare. 
This brings me back to my thoughts on love.  I am loving life right now.  Sure it is still a little complicated and has some rough patches, but I am learning to love and to care and understand more.  I am loving my friends so much.  I am trying as hard as I can to live life for me right now and to really focus my decisions on me and what I want, but my friends will still always be a main focus in my life.  Their actions and decisions effect me but because I love them, I will support them.  
Anyways, I was not really in a big writing mood tonight but I figured I should just say a little something. And so to end my little love rant, I love life and I am in love.

Good moods

HEY! I am feeling super duper good today.  Last night I worked inventory at Reebok.  It was not as bad as I thought it would be.  My boss also bought us Pizza.  You know it is a special shift when you get pizza...  Then as soon as I got home, my amazing beau calls me up and tells me himself, David, Amanda and their other co-worker are going to the movies.  So obviously I tagged along.  Charmaine and a friend of hers also came to the movie with us.  We went to see 'Secretariat'.  People, movies about horses are over-rated.  Either the horse wins the race or it dies.  Maybe this is just my opinion but I think it is pretty close.  After the movie we made a McDicks run obviously... because we are hungry teenagers.  I am going to work pretty soon to work all day.  It should not be too bad though.  I love working, it feels like it is all I do but I love it!  I am sad that i do not get to spend as much time at home though.  It feels like somedays I don't even get to see my family members.  My sister is done her training for Tim Hortons now so I will get to see her more.  She had training all weekend and the last two nights but I feel like I have not seen her in forever!  And I have spent my whole life with her.. how sad.  I am loving my new desk in my room (I will try to get pictures up in my next post).  It is just nice to have a work space for when I become a student.  So my surprise from a couple of posts ago...

I am starting to read the book of mormon in french!  Wish me luck, I am very excited about this.
I hope you are all having a good week :)

GUILTY

So I have decided to compile a list of some of my recent Guilty Pleasures.

1. Peanut Butter Cookies














Mom made some last night and I have been eating them ever since.

2. Romantic Movies















Tonight I watched 'The Time Traveler's Wife' and I was reminded by how much of a sucker I am for Romantic storylines. 

3.  My Itunes Recently Added playlist

I don't download music very often so it is a rare occasion when I do.  These are a a few of my new favorites...

Loving you tonight- Andrew Allen
Speak now-Taylor Swift
If I had you-Adam Lambert
Empire State of mind-Glee Cast
Sleeping to Dream-Jason Mraz
Stay the night-James Blunt
Lights-Journey

4.  This guy
















Although, I do not feel guilty spending time with him, He sure is a pleasure to be with :)

5. Puppies















Right now, I am under such Puppy Craze.  I would love a puppy so much!  I do love my dog, but she is getting pretty old.  A puppy is not going to happen for some time for me but I can dream...

6.  My G shows






















Thank you Grey's, Gossip Girl and Glee for keeping me so happy these past couple of weeks.

7.  Rings...


















Yes I know it is sad and that it is a long ways off, but I have started to look at engagement rings.  It is so bad, but I cannot wait to get married!

8.   Shoes

I could not choose one picture of shoes I want, but shoes seem to be on the top of my current 'Want' List.  I would love a pair of black winter boots and black wedges or pumps.  If you see anywhere with a good sale on either of these please let me know!

9.  Fall
















Fall 2009's photoshoot.  Everything changes in the fall, hopefully I can do that too.

That is all for tonight my loves :)

Only the good die young!

This song is currently playing by Glee on my itunes, and it is putting me in a good mood.  These past few days have not been the best.  It has been an emotional roller coaster.  I am trying to stay postivie though.  Today church was good and we had a great talk on Temples.  I love the temple so much!  I was hoping to go this weekend but I think I will be waiting for the YSA Super Saturday next month to attend.  But who knows, I may try to get over, I'll see what the week brings and then decide.  Today I relaxed and watched a bit of Conference that I missed (finally).  Also tonight, my dad is setting up a desk for my room.  Since I got home from Dal I have really wanted a desk.  This one is nice and the top of it is blue which goes nice with my room.  For anyone who knows me, my room means so much to me.  I missed it a lot when I was at Dal.  I am glad to be home <3 

Agenda for this; work, work and more work! But I love it.  It keeps me busy and focused on making money.  I also have an appointment with UPEI on friday to see what I would maybe be interested in taking there.  The boys also come back to the island sometime tomorrow for more work, so some more adventures with them will be in the near future shortly. 

A little bit of inspiration for everyone's week;

Toronto Ontario Temple

 My dear brothers and sisters, we would do well to slow down a little, proceed at the optimum speed for our circumstances, focus on the significant, lift up our eyes, and truly see the things that matter most... diligently doing the things that matter most will lead us to the Savior of the world. That is why “we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, . . . that [we] may know to what source [we] may look for a remission of [our] sins.” In the complexity, confusion, and rush of modern living, this is the “more excellent way.”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine

So after a not so good night last night, I woke up to a pretty good morning.  Laura's facebook status last night was:

tip: if you want a good nights sleep, don't cry right before you go to bed.
 
I was guilty on this last night.  My life has been shifted a little bit on the train tracks and I am the conductor who needs to get things back into place.  Problem is, I don't know how.  So I need to figure it out.  So I have not been the happiest and nicest person lately, but I am trying and that is all I can do for now. 
Yesterday after work I had some time to kill at the causeway while I waited for mom.  Most of the stores, except for mine, close down for the winter so right now there are some pretty good sales on.  Without any intention of buying anything I went into the store 'bag mania', and that is when I saw this, and I had to have it.



And then the sales lady told me that all the bags were on buy one get one free!  How could I resist paying $15 for this one and getting one for free!  So I did.  The other bag may be revealed later.  Later last night I went over to the Mallett's house to watch Grey's Anatomy with Nora.  Casey could not make it this week because she had family over.   Late last night before bed, I got to talk to Haig for abit on the computer.  I also worked some things out with a friend that I was having a conflict with.  I am so glad things worked out because it makes it easier for us both to just move on and get over it.  Even though distance is conflicting us right now, Haig is always so supportive of me and is trying to help me realize how great I am.  I do need to be better but it is good to know that someone special already thinks I am the best :) (cheeeesssy!).  This morning has been good.  I am in a good mood despite somethings but I am happy.  It is my day off and my afternoon is going to be spent shopping with my mother and sister!  What could be better?

 Happy Friday!

HOT Gossip

Before : Long and Lushious



After : Short and Sweet


 Not going to lie, I miss the long.  It feels very short.  I don't think my hair has been this short since I was about 10.  Just like my mom says though, I'll be use to this in two weeks.  So two weeks, please go by faster!!  I am off to work for the day and then an evening watching Greys with Nora and Casey!
XO, Lyssa 
ps, today is going to be a good day!

Lucky I'm in love with my best friends

On thanksgiving Monday, I went for a walk with my two best friends.
 









 


Monday evening, we ate yummy apple crisp that was made by my momma.  Haig and I watched some Glee episodes and a bit of the movie 500 days of Summer.  I started to fall asleep so we both decided it was time to go to bed.  In the morning the boys left for Cape Breton and I worked from 10-6.  Yesterday was also a little messy because without Haig here now, I'm feeling very lonely.  I am also having some issues with a few friends which makes matters worse in feeling lonely.  I have come to realized that this is my life and I want to live it for myself and no one else.  I want to focus on things in my life that matter the most rather than focusing on small things in other people's lives.  As for today, I am not working so I am at home feeling unproductive.  I am excited to get my haircut tonight and I have a surprise for everyone later!
