A little help from my friends

I’ve been sick with a sinus cold, going on 3 or 4 days. I don’t even remember. But I did know that I had to get out of the house today and get some fresh air, besides just walking Alfie to the designated pooping area for dogs. Little did I realize, he needed to go twice this morning and shat on the sidewalk on the way home. Luckily, I had another bag stored in my back pocket and cleaned it up before anyone noticed or got me in trouble. There’s even specific areas saying “Dogs not allowed on grass” in our complex. So I’m literally scared I’d get caught scooping up his doo-doo in inappropriate places.

Well, isn’t that a lovely intro to a blog post.

World Market buys, World Market, #WorldMarketI got a super hot shower and went to World Market today. I bought some hand cream, a shower curtain and some spicy chocolate (for a friend). I had to leave quickly because my eyes started watering, my nose was stuffy and I was coughing. Not my favourite moment of shopping.

So I have a question for you guys. You see those “Read More” buttons on the bottom of some blog posts? I’ve started added them to most of my blog posts. I’m testing it out, because we all know I can write some lengthy blog posts. Wondering if it looks more clean on the website? Or is it annoying to click? Please add you input!

BlackBerry z10, dog toots, and new blogs

For frig sake I am some sick of this cough. I still have a bit of it and this is going on day 9 or 10. I’ve lost count. I spent a ton of money on cough med’s that did nothing since it was a viral infection, and not bacterial. I thought it would soothe my cough in the night time at least, when it got the worst. No dice. $30+ gone in cold pills, day time cough syrup, and nyquil. Oh well, if The Guy catches it, maybe he can take some of the meds. Ha.

Since I haven’t worked out in a good week or more, I’ve been lounging around the apartment, putting on my PJs right after work and hanging out with my iPad or Nexus 7 for the night. Watching YouTube videos, reading blogs and surfing the internet, longing for some summer sun. California sounds great right now.

We went shopping on “Black Friday” in Canada at like 8 o’clock at night. My boyfriend is a bargain hunter and insisted we go to a few stores to scope out some deals. Of course there weren’t any. I could’ve told him that. But I did manage to get a Santa mug for my tea and hot chocolate’s. I’ll be bringing this mister mug to work with me. Santa mug

OMG exciting news. At work we are finally upgrading our BlackBerries. I don’t even know how old the blackberry I have is, but it’s old. Ancient even. You can see it in my What’s In My Purse post.

I went for the Z10, because hey change is good.

Even if my fingers want to hate typing on just a touch screen for the first few weeks. How about I don’t add anyone buy the Boyf to my BBM for the first few weeks? Then I won’t look like I’m drunk all the time.

blackberry elevatorSupport local!

I definitely will require a case for it. I drop my current blackberry about 4 times a day, and that’s under estimating. It’s probably more, but I don’t like to admit it. We’re totally upgrading at work all at once. Look at my new fancy monitor (and computer which you can’t see). We’ve also upgraded from Adobe CS4 to CC! Very exciting news for a Graphic Designer. It’s incredibly wide.wide screen monitor with adobe cc

Last night I swear we were being attacked by nuclear bombs going off. It sounded like gun shots outside. So like a smarty pants I ran outside in my PJs with Alfie in tow to see what the F was happening. It was a ton of fireworks put on by the city, just 500 feet from our balcony. It was incredible, so loud I couldn’t hear The Guy talk to me, and Alfie was frightened to death with his nails dug into my neck. It was so long, too. Like a 20 minute show. That’s never happened before, but I guess since it was the anniversary of the winter wonderland thing in the park, they decided to celebrate. Thanks for the notice. I’m glad I wasn’t one of the little old ladies in my building. Bet their hearts skipped a few beats hearing the first few fireworks going off.

I have officially exhausted the internets. I’m not officially done babying this cold I’m on the internet more often than not. I went on Twitter last night asking for some new blogs to read and a few people got back to me with some new sites to read. Love that! Thanks guys, you got some pretty nice sites on the go. I want to share them, in case my readers want to go take a peek at your blogs too!

It’s a Harleyyy Life is run by Danielle and her photos from Thanksgiving just kills me. I left a comment on her site saying I wish I had some American friends in Canada so I could celebrate Thanksgiving with them for a second time this year. Loves a bitta turkey and them fixin’s. Hoo wee. Actually, at work in December we’re getting a catered Turkey dinner lunch. My stomach is excited about that. Already noting to wear stretchy pants that day.

Run For It is written by Gene, and as you could probably take a wild guess from the blog name, it’s a running blog. Reading his site made me feel guilty for not getting out in my new Mizuno’s for the past week or so. I’ve been slacking. I should start a pact with myself. Or you guys. To make sure I get out for a run at least once a week, even if it’s only for 1-2 kilometres. Because let’s get real, the most I ever want (or will) do is 6kms lol.

Alfie on my lapWell I think it’s time to finish up this blog post. Alfie just tooted on my lap. One of those SBD (silent but deadly) farts. How does one small little 9 pounder make such a stench. Ugh. Even writing that sentence, breathing through my nose is just too much. Bye guys ;)

What were you up to this weekend?
Random note. I painted mynails with my first ever Zoya nail polish. It chipped a bunch of times within the first 24hours. I don’t know if it’s because I used my globby Seche Vite polish on top, or what. Also the polish was matte. What’s up with that? Are all Zoya’s matte? Lame.

What kind of cell phone do you have?

Who are your favourite bloggers? I’d love to read some, so leave some links down below!

Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a decent weekend! What did you all do?

I’ve been keeping comfortable with many hot teas, Netflix on my Nexus 7 (from Staples!) curled up in bed. Reading blogs and watching movies in bed all day? I could do that. Wait. I did. All weekend long. Oof! nexus7-on-my-bed

It’s been a long weekend over here for me. The Guy is finally back in town, and we are now sick together. I’m on the mend, he’s just now getting it.

On Thursday I stayed home because I coughed up a lung or two the night before. Friday I had to go into work to get some more stuff done before our big annual general meeting coming up in a few days. It’s like organizing a wedding (like I’d know all about that lol). And I’m doing it all on my own. I was in for about half the day, then my boss sent me home because I was probably spreading germs everywhere. So it was an extra extra long weekend for me.

I bailed on heading to Toronto yesterday, to meet up with Leanne, because I didn’t want to be hacking all day long and not enjoy the day. Plus I had to last minute cancel on a fun Make Up For Ever event. I really hate it when people cancel on me, so I hated doing so. But my Mom was right, when I talked to her earlier this weekend. I needed to stay in and get rid of this head cold, chest cold. Whatever it is.

Since I was feeling pretty grubby after a rough week (of coughing and holding in my ribs) I decided to fancy my toes up a little bit. Especially because it’s been longer than I’d like to admit since I had a pedicure last. Had an appointment for Friday, but had to call and cancel that too. touch-of-twinkle-china-glaze
