After 30 years of standing at the sidelines of my own life, I am ready to "Pick Me!" first. Follow me on my journey of finding health and happiness in my every day...

Wow! I can’t believe it has been a year since starting my blog!
It hasn’t changed to much with the exception that I never seem to write anymore!! Which is kind of sad! Especially since I finally own www.pickynikki.com as of yesterday!( I scored it using GoDaddy.com’s backorder and auction service )
I am trying to figure out how I want this blog to evolve while fitting into my life without overtaking it, or neglecting it!
‘Till then I will sit on the almost finished deck drinking coffee listening to the birds!
I hope your having a great summer too!!
As I posted here, I am going to write every day something that makes me happy. I feel maybe it will help remind me of all the great things I have going on in my life, and to stop and appreciate them.
Today I am happy I have the amazing family I have created…
Today more than ever I am reminded to be happy about them as it’s my 12th Wedding anniversary today!
I know cheezy, married the first day of the new Millennium… It’s easy to remember the years and date though 😛
Even though we have had our ups and our downs throughout the past 12 years I am happy they are with me along for the ride of “life”
Have a Happy New Year!

Today was the 12th Anniversary of when Hubby and I met… I had kind of forgot, till he said he arranged for my Mom to watch the kiddos and he was taking me out for lunch. The wheels started turning then, and I figured it out 😛 I am SO not a girl when it comes to those things!
The restaurant we went to is in Kitamaat Village just outside of the town I am from… gorgeous views of the ocean from the tables. If you are ever out this way check out SeaMasters!
I had a Halibut burger! YUM! with some Lemon Thriller tea and a side ceasar salad.
Hubby had a seafood platter, with halibut, clam strips, split prawns and calamari, with some Boston Clam chowder as his side.
While we dined we got to look at THIS! I miss living by the water…
This guy dined just outside the restaurant on some fish as well!
While we were out, my Mom and Thing 1 set out to cook their annual Salmon Dinner. Every year they go through her recipe books and find an idea, and as my Mom would say, Create!
After scraping scales, and cutting the slippery salmon into steaks, they marinated it in a cajun style sauce, and used her fresh herbs from the garden. (I am not privy to the recipe, but all I can say it was amazing!)
After supper I had a great visit with my aunt and uncle who actually introduced my hubby and I. They had their little grand-daughter with them, and oh, I wish I could have stole her! She is such a cute and sassy two year old!
Wow… it was a great day! I love fresh fish, but I love friends and family more!
What’s your favourite fish to eat?
