FRIDAY THOUGHTS

16 December 2016

Happy Friday, everyone! It feels like it's been a long time since I've been around here so I figured I'd stop in today to say hi and to share a few updates! So, first of all, hello there! How's December treating you so far? I seriously can't get over how fast these last couple of weeks have gone. I guess that's what happens though during the busiest month of the year!  Time is flying by and before we know it, Christmas will be over and we'll be into 2017. Gasp!!

Before I go too far off into the future though, let's back up a bit shall we?




- I was recently in Alberta again for a week of work. The days were long and the temperatures were horrible, but it was a lot of fun and a great experience. Our company took us out for a Christmas dinner while we were there and it was great getting to hang out with the new people I've met outside of work. What wasn't so great though was having a little too much to drink that night and getting up at 5AM to work a 10 hour day, only then to go straight to the airport and wait 6 hours for my 1AM overnight flight. Boy, that was rough, and obviously not the smartest decision I've ever made in my life. Luckily my friend who lives close to the airport (and who I don't get to see often), came and picked me up for dinner, which helped pass away some time for my sleepy self!

- With a connecting flight in Toronto, a stop into the MAC store was a must. Since we don't have one here, I can never not pass through without doing a little airport shopping! And, since I'm always on the hunt to find the perfect nude lipstick, I picked up the colour Creme D'Nude to add to my collection. 




- Have you watched the new Gilmore Girls episodes? I tried to spread out watching them but, before I knew it, the weekend that they were released was over and so were the episodes. As much as I loved the revival, I was also a little disappointed. I mean, the ending?! I read after that apparently that was how the creator always intended the show to originally end. But still. I also could have done without the couple of musicals that they through in there, which seemed to last forever. I also didn't love the whole Rory and Logan affair dynamic thing going on. But, I am sad to see the show officially be all over.

- Speaking of TV, guess what starts up again in just a few short weeks? The Bachelor!! One of my favourite parts about the show is not only watching, but getting online after and reading peoples thoughts about the latest episode. Since it's become a little obsession of mine, I'm thinking about writing weekly posts of my own. We shall see. I still don't want to get too carried away over here with this blog of mine!

- The weather this week has been absolutely horrible. It's been snowing (a lot) every single day. You go to bed, you wake up, and your driveway is full. You get off work, you come home, and your driveway is full. It's been a vicious cycle! The positive? It looks like we'll have a white Christmas. Oh, and it sure is beautiful to look at.




- Despite the weather, I've been getting outside on my lunch break and walking; something I've never done before. My new office is right next to a beautiful park and I've been loving getting up from my desk, stretching my legs and breathing in the rigid cold fresh air!! 

- Todd gets home from work in a few days and I can't wait to do some fun Christmas things together. We already have a few things in mind that we want to do, starting with making Christmas slush. My family has been making this during the holidays for as long as I can remember, and since my family will be away this year, myself and Todd will be keeping the tradition alive!

I think that's it for the week. I'm off to watch another Christmas movie. Have a great weekend!

Until next time.
