Good bye 2011

Well've actually been pretty decent! I've been living in Calgary, grown as a person, gained quite a bit of experience, worked, went to Texas, turned 21, found myself a fine fellow, and had a Lambie get married.
Sounds pretty good, no?

I'm grateful for the year I've had and for the things I've learned and hope I can continue to grow and develop.

Thank you 2011 and I look forward to seeing what 2012 has for me. Bring it on ;)
Wish all of you the best in 2012 and hope 2011 was good to you! Thanks to those who follow my nonsense ;)

Now go find yourself a New Year's kiss :3

Mwah (kissy face) for meow :)!

Here's a couple random pictures for ya...
1. The new Canadian monies coming out! Only 100's so far though...(snazzy!).
2. Curly haired Trudy with lips!

See you next year!

New Year is just around the river bend!

Hello Friday! How I've missed you my sweet friend! The only bad thing about it is my fine fellow left to go back to work for 2 weeks :( I'll miss you!

On a happier note, the family reunion/shindig last night was quite a lot of fun :) Lambie! You missed out! Dodgeball somehow managed to go on without you. And the fine fellow got initiated by coming to this crazy event!
Mmm~! Home made chocolates...

So today marks the start of a weekend, and I'm already quite ready for it...
May as well get in a quick...

5 Things Friday
New Year's Resolution Edition

Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Ya...I don't. However! There are some things I'll be working on here pretty quick just because the holidays are over.

1. Back to the grind for working out. There's not a lot of time when the fine fellow is back, but while he's the gym with me! It doesn't always have to be long, some is better than none!

2. More reading! Not only my church books (scriptures) but recreational reads as well! The fine fellow lent me a book called The Fifth Business, which I'm about 3/4 done but have put off finishing for quite some time now because I've started reading the Eragon series again. I'm usually not one to read 2 books at once but I was just really looking forward to getting through the first three and getting to the newest addition 'Inheritance'. Lately, however, I haven't been reading much at all D: Gotta finish!

3. Sleep! Lately enough sleep has not been gotten...this will need to be changed. Especially when I'm working out and working the next day. Sleep is essential for life (and beauty) ;)

4. Work more on me and what I want! School? Job? Life? Need to figure out what to do.

5. Develop better relationships with family and friends. I find I can easily let them drift to the side when really they're very dear to me! Love you all, I'll try harder!

What're you working on lately?? Any New Year's Resolutions?

I can almost taste the weekend ;) Enjoy yours!

Ta ta for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- My family (yes, and me) is very competitive. The first part of our gathering consisted of games! Basketball, dodgeball, bump, relays and so on. I'm terrible at basketball though! And dodgeball actually...but it's really fun nonetheless ;)

Dong out!

Fam Damily! And Voluptuous Hair!

So the real world is alright...I guess...

But shout out to my sister Lambie who just got MARRIED today! Congratulations :)! So happy for you :D

The main thing about the real world that's most unfortunate is alarms...I like sleeping to my hearts content D;

Anyways, that's really all I've got today...(heading out to strathmore!)

Lame? Who cares! :3

Byeah for meow :)!

OH! So today the fine fellow said to me... " I like your hair, it's very voluptuous! "
Me..."Do you mean voluminous?" x)
Fine fellow..."...shut up..."


Wednesday, December 28, 2011

28 and counting D;

December when will you be over?? Not that I mind December...I'm just tiring of this everyday blog business ;)

So just leaving the fine fellows parents' house. It has been fun! But alas...all good things must come to an end and it's back to work tomorrow :(

And then I have another family gathering out in Strathmore tomorrow! Jeez!

Time to get back to normal schedules of sleep, life, and eating! I'm fairly certain we have a chubby Trudy on our hands D; how could you do this to me food?!?

Anyways...are you done holidays yet??
Any added food baby pounds? X)
We'll get through this together!

Ta ta for meow :)!

Tuesday, December 27, 2011


Holidays still live when you're off work...and it's awesome! Its been a good day, nice not to have any cares in the world really ;)

How're things out there in the real world?? Or are you avoiding it too? ;)

Here's to continuing to avoid reality! :D

Cheers for meow :)!

Not that kind of quickie... But a blog quickie! (goodness...)

So happy boxing day! Get any shopping in??
I didn't...we had the fine fellow's families Christmas today which was fun to witness and be a part of :) I really enjoy his family and am having a lot of fun here.

There has been a lot of feasting taking place today! Like seriously...numerous food comas. Trudy is giving herself numerous "10 added food pounds" D;

Hope all is well!

What did you get for Christmas?? :o

Toodles for meow :)!

I've decided I can't do a random fact every time...but I'll do it every once and a while.

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I've actually never been Boxing Day shopping! I love sales but I hate shopping in big crowds...

Merry Christmas!

So here we are! Finally to Christmas and I made it! I may or may not be needing a break from blogging now ;)

Anyways...the remainder of my Christmas Eve was pretty splendid, consisting of family, Chinese food, and Elf! (or passing out from exhaustion and excess food in the middle of Elf...)

Today was a big Christmas service at church which was nice...Nani and I got our singing in which went well!

Now Strongbad (fine fellow) and I are heading to Christmas on his end of the family :)

So I bid you Merry Christmas! Enjoy it!

Merry Christmas for meow :)!

My Christmas gift to myself is no random fact today :D

Keep eating food before it's too late! ;)

Its Christmas Freaking Eve

And the Colonel says hello! And so does the fine fellow! (surprise picture attack! I had his consent after to post it). ;)

This is coming to you live from the Lethbridge west side KFC after a feast of fries, gravy, and popcorn chickens. And let me tell you was delicious! The gravy was so flavorful and I don't feel terribly disgusting! Apparently KFC on Christmas eve in Japan is a tradition! Awesome ;)

Anyways...we're about to head to Marble Slab to visit W! And not eat ice cream...ya right! (it's the holidays! Judge me all you want...)

Anyways, here we are at day 24! 1 day/sleep until Christmas!

On the 12th(!!) day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you 12 hours+ with friends and family, extra 11:11 wishes, 10 added food pounds, 9 pomegranates, 8 hot cocoas, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggs, 4 awesome nut ( phone always tries to make this say but trays!) trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes, and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque.

So an unveiling to you, you may or may not have noticed a lack of "Strongbad" in my blog. And that, my friends, is because Strongbad is my fine fellow :) and things are still going really well! We're here in Lethbridge visiting my family right now.

So! I hope your Christmas Eve's are going marvelously and that you have a good night! May Santa bring you lots of gifts ;)

That's it that's all! I hope you enjoyed this Christmas special! Join us again next year :3

Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love gum! I seriously used to chew it nonstop all day long ._. I had to break myself of that habit, and now I have packs of gum all over my room! (mainly contained in a corner...). I still enjoy it from time to time, but not near as much. (it's called random fact for a reason, ok?!)

Christmas (Eve)^2

Merry Eve Squared to you all!

23rd! With only 2 days until Christmas! Or as Lambie has been putting it, only 2 sleeps left!

On the 11th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, extra 11:11 wishes :D, 10 added food pounds, 9 pomegranates, 8 hot cocoas, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque! :3

So what did all y'all get up to yesterday?? I found myself baking a small herd of cookies! I made some crescent cookies (also called Mexican wedding cookies...), which are basically shortbread with either almonds or pecans and icing sugar on top. Tasty ;)

If you want a recipe...let me know :D

Then I made some cookies that I've been wanting to try for a while, I got it off of a blog called Bo's Bowl and if you want the recipe head over here. Basically, they're chocolate cookies made with cake mix...with a rolo inside! They are quite tasty but I found them difficult to gauge the time, though I do have a fairly crappy oven... They seemed way too soft but then it seemed as though they were in too long! I'm sure I'd have to experiment with them... Anyways, they taste delicious they're just a little crunchy ;). ( 18.25oz box is equal to a 517 gram box here).

THEN I still had some Rolo's left over and I wanted to try something else! So I got a recipe from Paige (from Running Around Normal) for this simple but tasty treat! If you like sweet/salty together, then you'll probably like these :). They were especially good fresh! (When I made them, I didn't push them down that far...I did with a couple and I was like "Mess!". I forgot you're supposed to set them in the fridge) ;)

One annoying thing from all this.... you can't buy bags of Rolo here! I had to buy like 9 individual rolls of Rolo! (Don't hurt me Rolo...I still love you <3).

So that was my last nights adventures! It took a while...but hopefully it's worth it. Cookies for everyone!

Can't wait to head down to Lethbridge tonight :D! Happy travels everyone! (Or happy stay homesies as well...).

Toodles for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Did you ever do that? Look at the clock exactly at 11:11 and you get to make a wish?? I never did actually...I always said "11:11 someone's thinking of me!". I don't remember who/where I learned it from...but I still do it today :D

Zoo for two!

So here's day 22 with 3 days til Christmas :3

OH! And Happy First Day of Winter! (I can't believe it's only the first day of winter...)

On the 10th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 10 added food pounds, 9 pomegranates, 8 hot cocoas, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque :3

So last night was pretty chilly, but the fellow and I headed to the zoo for zoo lights! It was very pretty and sorry to tell you, I have no pictures. But just imagine a dark animal-less zoo with a bunch of pretty lights and you've got it! They're trying to promote a bunch of penguins as they'll be opening a penguin section in the zoo next year. So, after we were done, we decided to cheque out the gift shop when this adorable little penguin was staring at me! (actually, a lot of them were staring at me...). They wanted to be taken home with me but alas, I just couldn't do it. (I should've at least gotten one D: BUT I DIDN'T! At least I have this picture to remember him by {fare well Squeaker}).
So as you can see, I was all bundled up for the cold! I felt as though I looked like a child bundled up by my mother to play out in the snow. Especially with my big clompy boots...being lead around by my fellow. *sigh* I'm a big girl...I swears!!

What festive events have you been getting up to??

Almost time to be heading home! :D

Peace for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Have you ever been meandering about when you hear a buzzing/humming sound? You look where it's coming from and then realize it's you? No? Me neither.... >.>

"Smithers, I miss Squeaker..." What's the original quote?? {I really do miss Squeaker}

Behind door number 21!

Whatever could it be?! No, I never gave any hints as to what it was... >.> ...

Hollow Santa attack >:D

So yes, here we are at day 21! Only 4 (!!!) days til Christmas! (That's crazy...) It's so close I can almost smell it...almost taste it! (though I'll be tasting that kinder santa when I get home ;D )

On The 9th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you 9 pomegranates, 8 hot cocoas, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 french toast, 2 candy canes, and a nice, warm, fuzzy, toque :D (someone was disappointed that I wasn't putting the pictures I'll catch those up...)
Snuggly and animated :D

Look at them all cute and lined up :3


Drool. So good...

Just kidding... ;)

SOOOO fine fellow is back and it's awesome :D We went to see MI4 last night... and it was quite good! We saw it in IMAX which was nice as it was pretty action packed. (You even get to see TC take a lot of shots to the face! :D Though it seemingly never appears wounded...). Anyways, if you were considering seeing it, do it! It's good :) I'll give it....****/5! is hump day! Meaning the middle of the week you weirdos... We can make it! Almost there! (I'm pumping myself up more than you, don't worry).

Ta ta for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Oddly enough, I've found that I generally get along with older generations and kids much better than I get along with people my own age. Is that weird??

What do you find with yourself?

It's been a while since I got a Christmas song up... so this is probably the number 1 Christmas song ('tis a classic!) :3 I'm not too sure it's going to be all that white of a Christmas this year actually!

Hollow Santa's and so on

The 20th with 5 days til Christmas! (you can come just a bit sooner Christmas...please??)

On the 8th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 8 hot cocoas, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggggggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy, toque :D

Speaking of kinder eggs...the advent calendar surprise of yesterday was a hollow Santa :3 I believe I get another one tomorrow, I'll take a picture! (I'm sure you don't care...but I do so yay!)

So tonight my roomie's mother is flying in from Montreal to stay with us for Christmas, which is fairly exciting. I haven't met her before but I'll let you know how it goes ;)

Yesterday I was originally going to go to FHE...(we were going to head to the nativity at heritage park) but well you see, I got home after 6 and just wasn't feeling it. So I worked out instead :D which was good as I'm a bit sore today - success! Anyways, I do enjoy the nativity and reminder of the season...but we'll definitely be going through that on Christmas Eve :)

I believe my fine fellow is coming back this evening and I am so excited :D it feels as though it's been so long and yes, looking forward to seeing you :)

Shout out to W, not sure if you read anymore, but if you do...send me a text to let me know ;) congrats on only having one semester of nursing to go!

Also a shout out to Nani, hope your semester is ending splendidly, thanks for being a loyal reader :D

But that's it for you today ;)

So long for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Some of you may or may not know, but I've been to England! (That's the furthest I've been). It was in grade 11 when I was in a girls choir ;) It was such a good time and some day I wish to return.

Derek Zoolander Centre for Kids Who Can't Read Good

Monday?! D; Why am I so sleepy?? Why didn't I move my pillows when I was clearly uncomfortable?? -.-
I don't know...

Anyways, the weekend went by quickly as expected and it's back to the office for one more week! (5 daysies {not to be confused with daisies}). It's the 19th today with 6 days until Christmas! Before we know it, the advent calendars will be all gone!

On the 7th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 7 mandarin oranges, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder egggggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes, and a nice, warm, fuzzy, toque. :3

So last night I went out to Strathmore and had a gay old time! It consisted of graham cracker house making, pizza making, smoothie, cookie making and just fun. So thanks for the fun time guys :D
Here's my graham cracker house! Ps...this was my first ever time! I've never made ginger bread houses before! So don't be too critical :l
(it's the Derek Zoolander Centre for Kids Who Can't Read Good :D {kind of...})

Oh! On the radio I heard one of my favorite (Christmas) soonnngs, it has someone who likes to wear tight pants and Bing Crosby ;) Can you guess?? You'll remember if you look back at these posts (1 & 2) ;>

And yes, that's all I've got for ya! It's almost time for me to pick up another Candy Cane Cocoa :3

Toodles for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I have a tendency to be a grudge depends on what it was, but I usually don't let things go easily. SO watch yo back! ._.

Sunday, December 18, 2011

A week!

Day 18 is here with only 7 days (one week!) until Christmas! Ah! This week will either crawl by at an unbelievably slow pace OR it will rip by way too fast! I'll take fast if you please ;) I want this week of work to be done, I want my fellow to be back, and I want Christmas to be here! But soon enough, this will all come to be.

On the 6th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 6 snuggly pillows, 5 kinder eggggs, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque :D

So today was the last Sunday before Christmas and our church choir sang 'The First Noel' and 'Angels We Have Heard on High'. Anyways, they went...alright. Since we have a lackage of people who come to choir, I've had to sing Tenor...and let's just say 'The First Noel' could've been better. Don't get me wrong, it was still alright.

So tonight I shall do some reading before heading out to the Strathmore to visit some family and do exciting things! (I'll fill you in tomorrow) ;)

Keep it real. Keep listening to Christmas music :D

Byeah for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love swimming! And I realized I haven't been in a long long while and I miss it :<. Don't get me wrong, I'm not all that good with my doggy paddling...but I love it nonetheless :3

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Candy Cane Cocoa!

Alright! Got to get a blog up quick before times slips away from me and it doesn't happen! Busy day it has been! Passport pictures, Wal Mart, dollarama, and even more errands! With more to come!

The last weekend before Christmas! Day 17 with only 8 days left!
On the 5th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 5 kinder eggggggsss :D 4 awesome nut trays, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque :3
I tried to think of what was like gold to me...and I figured kinders were pretty good (it was either that or ice cream...and tons of people whine about it being too cold for ice cream).

And that's really all I have to say! So I bid you good day as there's things to do! Errands to finish! And toenails to paint ;)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Lately I've really enjoyed Little Ceaser's hot and ready pizzas! I used to think they were terrible, so either they've improved or I started liking disgusting things. Either way - yum!
(We'll be getting some tonight) ;)

PS! Oh my gosh! I tried Tim Hortons White Chocolate Candy Cane hot chocolate...soooo good! Seriously D: try it!

Friday, December 16, 2011

Merry Christmas Baby!

So here we are... at Friday :D FINALLY! It feels like it took a while to get here, but it really wasn't all that terrible. (I guess...). So the sweet weekend has arrived!
What're your weekend plans??

I would tell you mine :D, but then I'd have to kill you ._. Just kidding, but I'll tell you about them tomorrow (not that they're exciting...I just wouldn't have anything to talk about tomorrow if I told you now). Anyways, tonight I was planning on having a major gym session (because basically, I have nothing better to do on a Friday night) HOWEVER I happened to forget my bag with all my work out business in it in my home... :( oh noes. And I won't go home and to the gym after as that's too much driving for my likings. So it appears as though an 'at-home' work out is in order! So that is what I shall do! And then I will attack the house with cleaning supplies and win! And finally I don't work on Saturday so I get to sleep in :D! HOORAY!

So here we are on the 16th with 9 days til Christmas! Ah!
On the 4th day of Christmas a Trudy gave to youuuuuuu, 4 awesome nut trays, 3 french toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque :3 (it was hard to think of a 4th actually, I don't even know why...)
(because I didn't get a picture up yesterday...and french toast is delicious)

(at first glance I thought it said made me smile...)
(PS. Times this picture by 4 ;) )

Christmas Music Edition

I'm going to mention I found this one VERY difficult as I love basically all Christmas music! So this is just a list of one's I've been liking lately, but keep in mind...I love it all ;)

1. You may or may not recall this one from last year, but I love Merry Christmas Baby sung by Bruce Springsteen! It's just so good and fun to sing to! And I've had it stuck in my head for basically 2 days straight...send help, and I'll sing them Merry Christmas Baby ;D

2. All I Want For Christmas Is You...It's not an amazing song or anything, but it's just so catchy! Especially Mariah Carey's version which is on the radio at least once a day. So I've heard it a lot lately and it's just catchy, enough said.

3. The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth... I've heard this song soooo much but I never knew who sung it! And when I looked it up, it all made sense! No wonder I loved it! It's David Bowie :D (And Bing Crosby is just a classic). If you'll recall I talked about David Bowie in this post ;)

4. Oh, Holy Night. Has always been one of my all time favorite songs (Christmas or not, it's so good!). It's just such a powerful song to me. And so so pretty! I didn't have a favorite cover of this song, so I just youtubed to see what came first! Celine Dion, sounds good to me! (After Celine was Josh Groban and Mariah Carey).

5. So I actually couldn't think of a 5th, so I'm going to tie it between 3 songs.
  • The Christmas Song - I'm most familiar with Celine Dion's version...but I'm sure there's tons of great covers! (This video has a bunch of Christmasy pictures!)
  • Carol of the Bells - Hey, I figured if I posted anyone it may as well be some MoTab! (Mormon Tabernacle Choir). Although if we're on MoTab you should also look up Handel Messiah's "For Unto Us" - soooo goood~!
  • River - by Joni Mitchell. It's just a pretty emotional song. Not all that joyful, but still a good song. (It was even on the Christmas Episode of Glee :D Don't hurt me...)
Remember to keep in mind that I basically love it all! So what do you figure? What're your favorite Christmas songs??
You should definitely be getting into the Spirit of Christmas by now ;) And if you aren't, well then it's your own fault!
Have a good weekend! (you'll be hearing from me again soon...getting sick of me yet?? Hmmmm?)
Ciao for meow :)!
RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Some of you definitely know this about me...but I basically bruise like a peach. Frequently I'm covered in bruises and I have no idea where they come from, then again I am a heavy sleeper D: (I don't mean anything by that, don't be gross). And I have no idea where this thought came from, but it's a good thing it's supposed to be random ;)
PS. Christmasy hey?? :D

Sitting on babies

Day 15 with 10 until Christmas :) on the 3rd day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 3 French toast, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque ;) (anyone know where the "3 French toast" comes from?? I claim no originality with it...I tried to think of something else but it kept playing in my head!! >.<)

So! (Merry Christmas Baby was just on the radio! Awesome!) on Tuesday I filled up with gas and got some hot chocolate and it was quite delicious! It's chocolatey and Mmm :3 and then he gave me a free sandwich for some reason...which I didn't even want but took anyways because it was free. Anyways! The point of this story was to tell you that Shell had delicious hot chocolate. The end. Oh! And my vehicle is a beast that drinks gas like there's no's already devoured over 1/4 of a tank in 2 days! Jeez! The end round 2.

But I's gots to go as I've got a couple little babies to sit on (if you get my drift).

Peace for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I don't know if I've ever said this, or if you care, but I love pizza! :D and ya, I was just sharing because I had pizza on the brain. Piiiiizzzzzaaaaa :3

Following Myself

On the second day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, 2 candy canes and a nice, warm, fuzzy toque ;)

So here we are at day 14! With 11 days until Christmas. As it creeps ever near, hopefully you're getting your shopping done! But don't forget to keep in mind the other aspects of Christmas and try to keep the Spirit of Christmas alive ;)

Annnnd moving yesterday I didn't hear about a concert. It could've happened but I didn't really feel like going out anyways! So I went to get a few groceries, did some yoga-ing, and ate myself a pomegranate! All in all a fairly relaxed and enjoyable evening. So tonight I've got to get myself to the gym again! As it's been a few days...

I think I see snow outside! Hopefully it doesn't get too bad...but overall, snow makes it feel like Christmas (we all know in Canada and all {especially Alberta}). So drive careful, stay warm, have fun and try to do something for someone else...even something little.

It looks so peaceful :D

So I have a you remember when I said I tried to "follow" myself and it didn't work?? Well, I tried again yesterday...and it worked :D And then I felt like I had sunk to a strange level of conceitedness. So I unfollowed myself. True story. The end.

Au revoir for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I'm a hair twirler. You know when you twist it and spin your fingers through it? It doesn't matter if it's soft or not, I still do it (though it's nicer when it's soft and fluffy ;3). And I don't even have specific times when I do it, though I think I may do it more when I'm stressed or nervous. *shrugs* It's kind of an annoying habit... Help me!

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Tuesday is closer to the weekend than Monday!

(Considering we can't exactly go back in time...)

This thought is seriously what's been getting me through the day. "Hey it's Tuesday! That's almost Wednesday and Wednesday is like the halfway point of the week, then before I know'll be Friday :D". Sad...but hey, whatever works right?? ;3

So we finally get to crossover, and the halfway mark between The beginning of December and Christmas is here (or rather has passed...)! Day 13, with 12 days until Christmas. So technically this was supposed to be the start of the "12 days of Christmas" ;) So keep in mind that on the first day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, a nice, warm, fuzzy toque! For a visual, look at my previous post ;)

I don't know...I haven't got a whole lot for ya today. Last night was FHE, Behind Sapphire did a free concert for everyone which was pretty good. It was interesting because the sound wasn't working how they wanted it to, so they switched to acoustic which was different, but they're always fun! I still haven't heard if they have a concert tonight, so...I...probably won't let you know, but just so you know...there might be one.

So it's definitely the Christmas season, and because I've been talking about them lately...I figured I should share Behind Sapphire's "Christmas Nigh" with you again. It's just a short song but it's happy and fun so :)

Has anyone else been listening to a ton of Christmas music?? I've probably heard enough to last everyone for Christmas ;) NEED MOAR! This one has always been amusing to intense!

Anyways, carry on with your day. Oh! Nani, here I was thinking you were going to comment on my blog every day and you stopped after 2. It was tragic unto me. Good luck during exams though ;) Look forward to singing with you!

Byeas for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I don't recall if I've mentioned this or not...but one of my favorite fruits are pomegranates! And sadly, they aren't around all the time. I'm taking full advantage of their season right now ;) So delish~

PS. Update on the stye eye: It's shown signs of improvement and should heal up nicely (it better!). I wore my glasses again today, they hurt my eyes D:

Monday, December 12, 2011

I Hate Mondays... -.-

Seriously...who's idea was it for Monday's anyway...

On the bright side, it's day 12! With 13 days til Christmas :o!

So to make Monday's even better I woke up with a big old' stye eye! :< Hopefully it goes away soon...
So I ended up wearing my glasses today (the insanity!). My brother even said "since when do you wear glasses?"

So have you tried the Lindt chocolates with the milk chocolate shell and white chocolate center?? So good!! It's like a kinder surprise (without the surprise that is...) but ya, try them! I also heard there's Peanut Butter Lindt's! But I have yet to try those...

I don't think I have anything else to ramble about today...Just rage about stye eye's and Monday's.

Oh my gosh! It's the "1st day of Christmas" is it not??!? I need to think of something awesome! On the first day of Christmas a Trudy gave to you, a nice, warm fuzzy toque :3 (it's just random, go with it...).

And with that I say good day! Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Well as you may or may not have caught from the above, I wear glasses! I've been wearing them for...probably over 10 years. Before I wore them, I was so excited to get them! Now, the things I would give up just to be able to have perfect vision... Though I don't necessarily mind wearing contacts. I mainly wish I could wake up and just be able to see.
I didn't really start wearing contact lenses until...about...2 years ago if that? My parents wouldn't get them for me...

Anyways, toodles!

Sunday day day

Day 11, with 14 days til Christmas! The 2 week marker! Crazy (I can't believe I've written 11 posts in a row...).

So yes! Last night, the Christmas party was not bad! (Although the fellow and I did leave around 8...), and we headed to see Behind Sapphire! Which was awesome!! They have some new material, and have changed up their older songs a bit, anyways...good! There was another band there as well, though I don't quite recall what they were called...(Nix Dickons) But they were good as well! Overall, a fine evening! ;)
If you missed Behind Sapphire the first time, they have one more show on Tuesday night before they head out. Not quite sure where it is yet, but I'll keep you posted!
They ended up heading to our ward today for church and I spent the time after church with them, been fun. And then at 7 there is a Choirside we're heading to! Love Christmas music :3

I can't believe the weekend is already over :< back to work tomorrow...but at least Christmas is getting closer everyday!

Enjoy the remainder of your Sunday ;)

Fare well for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I don't particularly like having long finger nails, it's more a matter of me being too lazy to cut them! They're too fragile and breakable when they're long...and it hurts to bend them back...

Saturday, December 10, 2011


So it's Saturday! :) I got a breaky call on the way to work this morning (my brother needed some breakfast), and bacon and egg mcmuffin is a great way to start off your day :D

So talk about an insane day! Babysitting kids while answering the phone is awesome! (not really...)

So the fellow surprised me last night by showing up on my doorstep! It was fairly awesome as I had missed him so :3 but alas, he returns to work tomorrow morning :<
Anyways, so tonight is the christmas work party! Which may or may not be a gong show...we shall see.

So day 10! With 15 days til Christmas! Almost to the 2 week countdown yo!

Annnndddd with that I'm keeping it real and peacing out.

Ta ta for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love hair cuts! How it feels lighter, how it looks more crisp and clean, and especially when they wash your hair! It's awesome ;) I got a hair cut tonight :o! (and he curled it!)

Friday, December 9, 2011


So Friday and the weekend are here. Though it doesn't really feel like the weekend because I work tomorrow :< but yay for money I suppose...especially nice around Christmas.
Day 9, 16 days til Christmas. It seems to be coming pretty quickly!

So do you remember a while back web I talked about Behind Sapphire?? (refer to these posts :) :( ;/ )
Anyways, they're back on tour to promote their new songs and this is short notice but they'll be in Lethbridge tonight and they'll be playing at The Slice, so if you have a chance...check them out!
Then they'll be playing a show here in Calgary on Saturday night and here's be a link to the details for that! {{LINK}}

I realized this link might not work for you! And if it doesn't, here's the address:
1119 10 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0S8 (called The Area)
And it'll be going from about 7 to 10.

I haven't heard their new stuff but I do know they're really good and so much fun! Seriously, check em out! For realz...

Hmm I guess it's time for another 5 Things Friday..."Things that are nice about it being snowy out...I guess" Edition!

1. Sledding! If there's a good hill and it's not too cold out and there's not a bajillion kids in the way, then sledding is awesome! :D

2. Snowboarding! I've only been once, and I remember doing many face plants and being disgustingly sore after/the next day...but I also remember it being a lot of fun!

3. To be does look really pretty out when everything is covered in white! (though it's also pretty when it's green and there's flowers and such...)

4. An excuse to let the animals/pets in for the cold :D save all the things! ( a lot of you won't get that...don't worry about it). Sadly there's been no strays hanging around my door and I have no pets of my own to let in from the cold
:< Save all the hobo's? :D?

5. Bundling up, staying warm, cuddling by the fire, whatever! It's all awesome and should be done with hot chocolate near by ;)

And I'm throwing in the towel and I say good day. ;)

Toodles for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love hot chocolate :D (And Chai Tea Latte's from Starbucks...) But really! Hot chocolate is delicious! Have you tried making it with mint tea water? Or with a candy cane in there? Well do it! (If you like mint...).

P.S. Did you notice the color?? :D (I had to come on my computer to link all of these up for you! Be grateful... ;l)


Thursday, December 8, 2011

Thursday is kind of sort of almost the weekend

And baby its cold outside! ;) (for the last 2 weeks I should post christmas songs! But that would require me to actually get on my computer to post it likely wont happen...we'll see...) One unfortunate thing I did realize is that it my posts are all plain color :'( So i'll probably be wanting to do some posts on the computer relatively soon anyways! Soooo...Day 8, 17 days til Christmas.

17 was a good age, just saying. It seems like such a long time ago! High school was wrapping up, I was starting college and ysa, and I was seemingly very determined (until I realized I didn't want to be a nurse at all). Things probably could've been handled a little differently but alas, it is what it is and here I am today.

Here at work, I don't know how it gets so cold! I'm wearing 2 sweaters and a scarf (this one isn't that itchy...but equally strangleable) to try and stay warm ...and I'm still chilly! Goodness... If I freeze, think of me fondly (two lyrics from songs in one post, look at me go!), eat ice cream and bury all my things with me ;) if these requests aren't followed, I will haunt you (well that'll happen regardless, but just do it. I lived a decent life!) ;l

Oh! Last night at the gym, a random guy started talking to me on the bikes. He was impressed that I was reading while working out. And he kept staring at my legs and asked if I was a soccer player(?). It was slightly creepy I guess, but he was a nice guy :) so shout out to the random gym dude named Kurt who goes to SAIT.

Annnnndddd break! But yes, I think that's it...maybe...hopefully. Yes. Good enough as you'll hear from me tomorrow ;)

Peace for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Hmmm welllllll, I noticed that almost every morning when I wake up I push snooze at least a couple times and then I find my brain trying to calculate how I can get out of work that day or excuses not to go.'s almost every day. Does this happen to you??
What are your first thoughts upon waking up??

Wednesday, December 7, 2011


As in day 7 (and it's just an awesome number really. Why? I don't really know...) and 18 days til Christmas! And let me just say that today its looking like Christmas outside D: oh noes...

So last night my sleep was utterly glorious midst my plethora of pillows :3 sadly it had to come to an end...

Anyways, after I went to the gym last night...I decided some groceries were needed. If you haven't learned this lesson yet, learn it now - never go grocery shopping when starved...never!
Needless to say, a lot of unnecessary purchases were made because they seemed oh so necessary at the time. Oh well, live and learn (and buy delicious things! ;>)

I believe that's the excitement of this day. So I bid you adieu!

Au revoir for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- Scarves...I don't know what I think of them. Sure they're warm and cozy and I think they look just fine and maybe it's just me but they always seem to be itchy! (not to mention you're giving someone a weapon to strangle you with...just saying...)

What do you think of scarves?

A feast indeed

Day 6 with 19 days til Christmas!

So the Christmas feast yesterday was delicious! Turkey/ham dinner with all the fixin's! And apple pie AND a hot chocolate bar ;) needless to say, I came home COMPLETELY stuffed! So good.

I've been trying to go to bed at a decentish time lately, so last night I ended up going to bed around 11:30. Just as I drifted into a sweet slumber I got a call from my dad (about quarter to 12) and it was so confusing! I thought it was my alarm going off and I was annoyed because I felt so tired and how could it be morning already??
Anyways all is well...but I didn't seem to be able to sleep very well after that

Other than that, today has been pretty standard. It got kind of warm again earlier and then ended up getting cold by the end of the day. Why you no stay chinook?!?
*sigh* well...with the fellow being gone (I miss you...), I was able to get back into my more standard routine and got myself to the gym! Which was nice but left me completely famished and exhausted. Needless to say, I'm right pooped!

So until tomorrow...

Ciao for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love pillows! Right now I have 6 pillows on my bed - all for me! :) all so puffy and delightfulsome! They beckon...
Good night!

What a Monday ._.

Welllll...happy Monday! Times at the office are...well...interesting. The roads weren't terrible today and my doors weren't even that bad :o?!? But I've gotten through this Monday relatively unscathed! (so far ._.) Day 5! 20 days til Christmas!!

Yesterday I wanted to make cookies...but then I decided against it and just had ice cream instead ;) one of these days, cookies will be made!
Or homemade ice cream! Did I tell you I got an ice cream maker?? :D it's delicious!

Today I realized one of my tires were...well...quite flat, sooo I filled it up with what seemed like a suitable amount of air??(I have no tire pressure gauge!!)

So tonight is the ward christmas party so there's a feast in store :D I'll give a report on how it goes tomorrow!

And with that, I shall call it a day!

Toodles for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I eat really fast! So I have a tendency to over eat very quickly and very easily...thus leaving me extremely overly full and in a food coma. That's likely about to happen... Cheers to that!

Sunday Sunday

Well here we are on day 4...21 days til Christmas. It's been a good Sunday! Tons of snow on the ground, but it's still beautiful out! Just make sure you drive safe (I'm speaking to myself here as well).

This morning I went to open my car door when alas they were all frozen!
I tried to get in through my trunk, but I couldn't find a lever or anything to grant me entrance into the backseat D:
So after much struggle I eventually thought to use a big metal rod to pry open the door and SUCCESS! At least it wasn't too cold out. I was half an hour late for church...but what can you do??

Anyways, tonight is the Christmas devotional fireside! If you can - go! It's always fantastic and Christmas music is awesome!

Enjoy the rest of your week ;)

Fare well for meow :)!

Eat some cookies, and drink hot chocolate :D!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I generally take a long time to get seems like no matter how much or little time I have, I always manage to fill it. Oh well!

Ps...Starbucks has some pretty tasty mint hot chocolate right now ;) I've also heard they have white hot chocolate?? :o

Weekend almost over?? :(

So day 3! And 22 days til Christmas!
And with the weather outside (being frigrhtful), Christmas may as well be here! Talk about snow and terrible roads D: makes me just want to curl up and never leave the house! (seriously...I'd do it if I could...)
So tonight my brother had a little Christmas party at his house...had a few delicious snackies, saw a cute niece and nephew and hung out with the fellow :) all in all, it was a good day (besides the crappy roads...)
Speaking of fellow, he goes back to work tomorrow :( I shall miss you...

Almost Christmas!

That's it this time ;)

Au revoir for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I love mittens! They're so cute and cozy, and I like my fingers to be together.

How about you? Mittens or gloves??

Stay warm, drive safe!!

Day 2!

So here I 2...23 days til Christmas. And that's basically all I have to say. Seriously D: ...

Hmm, well, the weekend is here - yay! And I guess I could do a 5 things Friday? But what on...what on I say?!?!..?!..!(?)

5 Things Friday...warmth edition!
The best sources of heat..
1. Snuggling! Let's be serious, snuggles are awesome.
2. Fire, sire. Love fires...especially fireplaces inside homes in the winter. So delightfulsome :)
3. Sun! The sun is glorious...which is why I love summer, but alas it's not always around ;(
4. Blankies. Cozy cozy blankets. I could lay in bed allllll day just to stay cozylicious. (also layers and/or sweatpants and such)
5. Heaters in the home. Well...they do what they're supposed to. When I was younger, I used to hover by the heat vent for warmth. But my favorites have always been fire and blankies!

What's your favorite method of getting warm??

And that's it for today! Keep it real and all that.

Toodles for meow ;)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- I hate socks! I know they're very nice and helpful for keeping you warm...but they make me feel so...confined D: I used to go around barefoot everywhere, and I still wear flip flops for as long as possible.
That's it, that's all.

Happy December!

So time has slipped away from me yet again and here we are in December. Craziness. Christmas will be here before we know it because the countdown is on! (24 days til Christmas)

I've decided I'm going to try to get on here everyday this month...I know it's quite the goal, but I'll try nonetheless! Go team Trudy! �� (where the heck did these little symbols come from??)

So I believe I told you last time...that I've finally upgraded to an iPhone! So my blog today is brought to you straight from her! It makes it a lot easier to show you pictures! And todays picture is perfectly suiting of December 1st! First off, advent calendar...hello!! Need I say more ;)

So what I've been up to lately is basically hanging out with my fellow (yes the same one, it's been 2 months now!). He's been home from work for the past 2 weeks which has been awesome...but sadly, he goes back to work this Sunday :(

Lambie, my sister, and her recent FIANCÉ(!) have just recently moved to Aberdeen, Scotland! So I've definitely been missing her...but I'm excited and happy that she's able to go on these adventures :)

Shutout to W and Nani...I haven't really been able to talk to you guys much, hope all is well!

And I believe that is all for today!

Byeas for meow :)!

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME -- some of you may or may not know...I used to play an MMO (massively multiplayer online) and was totally addicted! This was a few years back...anyways, just something I thought I'd share ;)
