Hello sun!

ABC about me!

 Some ABC's about me and what's been happening lately.

A - A nice day on the beach. And luckily for me, in August I'll get some of those :D

B - Biking and bum workouts. Yesterday I went for a little bike ride, and a long walk and did a little bum workout. Gotta love the bum burn ;) (Unless it's a rug burn on your bum... I would imagine that to be unpleasant).

C - Cookies. I have a niece that has been obsessed with cookies lately and talks about them quite frequently. So cookies were bound to come up. C is for cookies.

D - Driving with the window down and the tunes playing... it's just kind of a peaceful relaxing time (mainly when it's not in city traffic...).

E - Exercise! Love it. I'm grateful when I'm well enough and have the time to do so :)

F - Family and friends. I've always appreciated them...but they've also been especially helpful in regards to my wedding. Thanks everyone! Love you!

G - Groceries. A full fridge and lots of options. I like that.

H - Having someone there for me almost all the time. Scott...I love you and appreciate all you do for me.

I - I think this is a joke. You obviously know it's ice cream -.- duh. (Home made FTW!)

J - Jumping and leaping! Lately I've been going on lots of walks (and also watching sytycd)...and for some reason I've been enjoying jumping around and being a weirdo. Normal, right?

K - Knives. Good knives are wonderful things! Not so wonderful? Not using them safely and slicing your finger... :( (you can use your imagination for what I was doing).

L - Laughing :D Oh how laughing can change/brighten up a day.

M - Market mall Petland. Oh how I love going to see and hold the pups and kittens :3

N - Not having to set an alarm clock. Those glorious days when you can sleep 'til your hearts content!

O -Opening mail...and packages! It's just kind of exciting :)

P - Personal pizza, home made pizza! That's what we had last night - delish :3

Q -  Quiet time to myself. I don't like it all the time...but sometimes, it's really really nice! Need to recharge my Trudyness.

R - Rain no more! RAIN GO AWAY! WE'VE HAD ENOUGH! Kthanks.

S - Summer & sunshine :D If only some sunshine would stick around here...we've had a few decently warm days, but not much sun :(

T - TV...namely SYTYCD  (as S was already taken) ;)

U - Upper floor heat. As in the upper floor of a house being unbearably warm and uncomfortable. (Like out in Strathmore {they have no A/C} gets so hot by the end of the day! Thank goodness I get to sleep in the basement...)

V - vehicles. (Scott gets to pick up his new truck today - GMC Sierra 1500). Makes me get the itch for a new vehicle, not enough to actually scratch the itch though...just make it mildly uncomfortable (if that makes sense at all...).

W - WAX! As in waxing my legs. Let me tell you something... I hadn't shaved my legs in a long time, over a month - possibly 2! Anyways, disgusting or not, my leg hairs were at maximum capacity! And it didn't really matter because no one really saw them and I didn't care! But yesterday, I looked down at my legs and thought to myself...Wow, that's gross - I can't take it anymore. But I couldn't just shave it away, I had to wax it! So a niece and I biked to Wal Mart, some supplies were acquired, and then it was back home to get down to business! Anyways, be disgusted if you wish...I was too.
PS, this was NOT just one pull...more like half a calf
And then the irritation of the waxing began to set in! (As you can see by the little red bumpies).
But the result was smooth, much less hairy legs ;)

X - X-citement (what, was I supposed to put xylophone?!!) for the wedding, our upcoming vacation, time off work, and a new life to spend with Scott :)

Y - You! To the few people that read, thanks :)

Z - ZZZ! Sleep. I haven't been getting as much as I'd like...but life is busy and things have been good - so it's ok! Soon I'll be able to get some! (Hopefully...).

Byeas for meow :)!

You can choose your own fate

Picture that said in (a slightly annoying) Scottish accent. 

Have YOU seen Brave?
Do you want to?
(It's the new Pixar movie with the chick with the red hair if you didn't know.)

Scott and I decided to take advantage of cheap Tuesday at the theatre just a couple days ago to see it.
And it was good :D
Of course it is animated and is targeted towards don't see it if you're not interested. But if you still like these... do it :D
There were some good, funny parts. 
And afterwards you'll have to try resisting trying to speak in a Scottish accent (or just be like me, and embrace it) ;).

How many stars would I give it? Probably.... ****/5. It was good, but there's better movies out there (in my opinion). (Plus the music kind of annoyed me...)

Does anyone else feel like it should be Friday today? This week seems to be creeping along.

Anyways, enjoy your Thursday!
Have you seen any movies lately??

Ta ta for meow :)!

PS. SYTYCD was on last night ;) They announced the top 20 aaaaaaaaannnnd I'm excited. 

Bye bye.

Lonely Breakfast Essentials

Did you get your breakfast essentials today?
Have you tried these?

Most times, lately anyways, I'm not hungry for a few hours after waking up. So I'll take something to have at work. And these are nice and easy!
Don't get me wrong, I also love cereal and would eat it for every meal of the day...but that's not always the easiest and quickest thing to transport. And it's probably good to switch it up every now and then ;).

WARNING: Strawberry flavor is pretty much disgusting. I use chocolate. Good day.
These aren't anything amazing... but they're easy and pretty decent. Just under 300 calories (depending on which % milk you use). So most mornings, I've been getting my "Essentials" ;)

You know how there's days...where everyone seems to be messaging you and you're either busy or just not in the mood? Well today seems to be the opposite. It's like...where the heck is everyone? I'm lonely and want to talk! Though I reckon everything goes two ways, right? ;)

Guess it's my turn to message someone!

Hope all is well out there! And remember, if you're lonely or just feel like talking...comment or get a hold of me! I'm generally pretty willing to talk ;)

Toodles for meow :)!


PS. What's your breakfast routine? Do you eat at a certain time? Usually have a certain thing?

PPS. What do you think of this conversation? ;) 

PPPS. It's hump dayyyy :D

Just a little morsel...

Aiight, yo! So, my sweet little Scott got back on Sunday...which is awesome. And he's here until the wedding, which is even more awesome - yay :D

The wedding is in 2 and a half weeks! AH~!    ^_^  

Peace for meow :)!

PS. Rain rain, go away. You've definitely abused your length of stay ;l

Monday no-fun day's not so bad for a Monday. But it sure felt no-fun crawling out of bed this morning. And no, I did not work take that world! Watch me not fit into my wedding dress...that would sure show me D:

Working out, I've got to work on that again...

How's working out in your life? Or does working out exist in your life?

Here's an amusing comic to make your Monday just a little bit better.

Bye-bye for meow :)!

Sooooo...I've started watching 'So You Think You Can Dance' again this year. It's so good! There's so many talented people out there! It makes me wish I was a super awesome dancer...but I don't think that's in the books for Trudy!

Anyone else watching it?
Who's going to make top 20??

Or what show are you watching? :o

Toodles for meow :)!

Thursday, June 21, 2012


Well... Scott's been gone for about a week and a half and I miss him. A lot. But he'll be getting back in a few I guess that's good.

I'm still sick so I wasn't able to go to soccer on Tuesday :( Boo.
I hope all this sickness goes away before the wedding.

I still need to figure out a few things before the for myself and bridal party, hair for myself and bridal party, clothing for parts of the day, but things are finally starting to come together.

It was really nice to see W and Nani this past weekend. I've missed you guys. (And it's always nice to see Francesca as well...PS, thanks for agreeing to be part of the wedding party) :3

Happy Belated Father's Day! I considered posting on Sunday...but no. I was with family, and that takes priority yo.

PS. My dad is awesome...but I'm sure everyone thinks that ;) (about their own dad's...) 

What's new with all of you? Hmm?

Ciao for meow :)!

Showers in all sense of the word

It's mid-June. The weather has been utter crap. For realz.

Rain, hail, winds, thunder, lightning, clouds. Garbage.
Will the sun come out tomorrow? (ok the sun is kind of out today)

But in another meaning, I had 2 bridal showers this past weekend (thus contributing to my lack of sleep). But they were really fun! Thanks to those who threw them for both know who you are ;) (I would put up your names if you wanted me to).

And I'm sorry to tell you, but I actually have no pictures...from either! I was just enjoying the time.

But I will give a shout out to Nani, W, Francesca, and a bunch of my family and Scott's family for coming out. It was a good time :)

And another angle of showers, I've also taken multiple showers this past weekend? Which is pretty normal... but I guess you can bathe if you want to??

Showers for meow :)!

PS. Scott and I get married in 3 and a half weeks. AH!

PPS. Look at this intense shower...It's on sale for only 7,299.00!

PPPS. Did you know it's officially Summer? As of yesterday :o!

Random things

So, somewhere between the time of when I stopped posting and now...I've taken a few pictures. And now I share them with you!
Some different cucumber rolls...they were delicious!
Brownies my sister gooey, and also delicious...
Scott can appear to have curves when he wants to...
This little bird was wandering around the cars at a stop light, brave soul.

Soggy Trudy

So, as I mentioned in my previous post, I've been a sickly Trudy. 
 I ended off not last weekend, but the weekend before with some sort of flu/stomach pains. Which was fairly unpleasant. 

So one of the days I went for a walk with my sister and then it started POURING on us. Needless to say, by the time we got home, we were fairly wet. 
AND THEN, one of my nephews came home and wanted to jump on the trampoline in the rain (which is always awesome...and I was already wet anyways). So if I wasn't wet before, I sure was now! 
 Then I needed to turn cold, soggy Trudy...into warm, soggy Trudy. So shower, I did! 

These were the different Trudy's through the different phases of the day. Can you tell which is which?

And then last week, I started getting a cold. (Probably because my immune system was still weak, and quite a few people around me seemed to be getting colds). And at first it didn't seem so bad...but then due to lack of rest and who knows what else, it just got worse and worse. So this past weekend was a little painful for my throat and energy levels. 

Here I am on Tuesday, still with a cold...still with a dying voice. Maybe I'll get better eventually?

Hoping so for meow :)!

Hola Senora!

Alright, so basically. I've had a bunch of posts just piling up because I've been too busy/lazy/sickly to get them up. A couple weeks ago, Scott was still in town, and we headed to a mall to do a little wandering (we frequently wander around malls).
But what this post is getting to, is what we had for lunch. SUSHI! I had once said I'll never try sushi (and technically I haven't really tried much sushi at all) but I've tried cucumber rolls and I love them :D

So really it depends on if you consider these sushi. Because I won't eat any of the crazy fishy ones. But these are delicious :3
Scott will try all sorts of crazy concoctions. How could someone so sweet enjoy such disturbing things??

And that's all for meow.

OH! Except one little update... Scott and I found an apartment! Basement suite, lease for 9 months just because it's pretty decent and in the meantime, we can look for something else.

I don't know if you realized this or not... but I'm getting MARRIED in a month ~o.o~!
I'm excited :D

(more posts coming, just haven't had time)

The bug itches...

You know how you train yourself (I'm speaking for myself here) to not look down every time you feel an itch? There's no possible way that it could be a bug/spider EVERY time. 

So I've gotten pretty good with this, but today on the way to work...this didn't feel like any ordinary itch. I looked down and SPIDER! I flailed, trying to kill it, but now it's gone. So now...every itch I'm paranoid it's the spider AND I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to burn the interior of my car as a precaution. 
(And I should probably shave my hair off).

Who needs hair and car interiors anyways...

A past time... (a couple weeks ago...)

So yes, a couple weeks ago, Francesca and I had a weekend together - yay! It had been a long time and it was fun :3
(She mentioned she hoped it would make the blog...I assured her it would - then I forgot -.-)

It was a beautiful day! We got up, worked out, went for a walk, made a delicious crepe filled breaky, watched a TV show (which I can't remember...but it was funny), headed over to her place, went on ANOTHER walk (really...we probably walked like 15-20 km), and then had a ROCK BAND PARTY :D YAY! It was fun, and now I want another.
But here are the pictures from the day (all 2 of them).

This dog gets very excited about throwing the "doggy bags" away.

How do you like Francesca's sunglasses? Mainly I just like that she looks like Cousin It :D
(Do you see me??) :3

So there you have it! Sorry that took a bit ;)

Ta ta for meow :)!

Hair and the likes...

SO. I've been trying to "grow out my hair" (as much as one can grow out their hair in a few months...) for the wedding and it's driving me a wee bit insane. 
I want a sweet haircut so badly... 
Must....wait....until the beginning of July....
I don't know if I'll make it    x_X
Probably not. My hair isn't even all that long. *sigh*

Peace for meow :)!

Update! Alright, things have been a liiiiittttle busy lately. But it's a little more calm right now, just a little. 
SO, besides getting a terrible cold sore (not as bad as my first one...but really ANY coldsore is bad...), moving out to Strathmore (which is going alright, by the way), this past weekend...Benifred and Francesca got married! Ah crazy...but ah yay! It was fun :)

Scott and I also managed to go see MIB3. It was really good! Now I want to watch the old ones again... but I would highly recommend it if you're at all interested ;)

So yes, Strathmore, things are pretty relaxed there...the only unfortunate thing is all the driving. But tis alright, I can take it!

Still trying to work things out wedding wise, and find a place before July 1st (and ideally before Scott goes back to work) D:

But other than that, all is reasonably well!

Anything else you wish to know?

What's going on out there?

Hope all is well!

Bye bye for meow :)!

Kitty kitty I mentioned about making something a post of it's own - here it is!
When I went down to Lethbridge, my mom told me there was a random cat on the deck. So I ran up and sure enough... a cute, cuddly cat! :3
This cat did have a collar, and it seemed so needy and just wanted continuous attention. So either this cat is usually ignored, or very spoiled and wants attention all the time!

Loved the tummy rubs and scratches...
No kitty, you can't come in! (But as soon as the mother leaves, I'll give you some milk ;3)
Kitty meowed at the door for a bit until he saw me in the kitchen window...
And then kitty wanted in! He demands attention!

I played with kitty for a while...but eventually I went in and after a couple of hours, he must've found his way home. I wondered if he might return (because I actually did give him milk!), but my mumsie has said she hasn't seen him since.
Oh well.
Miss you kitty! (Now to get one of my own...)

Toodles for meow :3!
