I’m all for not blogging when I don’t have anything to say, hence the lack in posts this week.
I was too much of a wuss to stand outside in the snow this week to take my outfits posts, and too hyper to remember to take them in a full length mirror at the bathrooms at work. I’m sure you all really care. So instead, I’ll be posting random bits about my week. Yay!I put my bra on upside down earlier this week. I thought it was going to be “one of those days” but I still ended up being quite the character this week. Counting down the days until I leave for Newfoundland. We’ll be on an air plane soon enough!I had 3 peppermint white mocha’s from Starbucks this week. #PeppyMoXo‘s get in my belly! Already there folks, already there.When I’m not drinking peppy mo’s I’m drinking tea out of my Santa mug that I picked up pretty much for everyone on my list this year. They’re adorable. Like my “christmas” (more like bridal) nails?
Earlier this week I went withÂ The Guy to watch him at his master’s swim class. I didn’t realize how boring it would be watching people swim. So I took selfies, naturally.I wore my McDonalds oversized tote as a purse. It’s way too big to use as a purse.We whipped out Alfie’s winter coat out of storage, finally. He’s wearing a Canada Pooch jacket (that I reviewed a while ago). He does flips and rolls around in the snow with it on, it’s both adorable andÂ hysterical at the same time.Earlier on in the week, we gave him his semi annual bath. It was a team effort, despite his little size. He wasn’t squirmy but I would rather have four hands go at him, than just two. I scrubbed him down with some dogÂ shampoo and once I wanted to rinse him, I gotÂ The Guy to hold the shower head while I rinsed everything out. Then of course we couldn’t not document his drowned rat look. I forget how tiny the little guy really is. He has SO much fur.
God help me… or this child. But I’m now a god mother! Amazing right?
She’s the daughter of a long time friend of mine. We met in Grade 9. Remember her? She’s the one who was moving back home (to Newfoundland),Â from South Korea and I met up with her in Toronto of all places between her move.
She had her baby on Wednesday and the little sweetie didn’t wait until I was home so I could visit the trio at the hospital. She was officially due on December 26, but she came a little early. Look at her sweet little chunker cheeks and her little lips.
I need to get a photo of me holding my little buddykins when I go home. Cannot wait to see and hold her. Allyson is the first of my friends to have a baby!Â I saw Allyson again when I flew home for Thanksgiving.
One more thingÂ â€” I don’t have many guest blog posts going up on my blog while I’m away over the Christmas. So I want to wish you now, a very Merry Christmas and I’ll see you in the New Year!!!
p.p.s: Check out my friends blogs if you want to read some posts over the holidays. I won’t be updating, but they may?!
*Faces blurred out for those who I didn’t ask permission to be online.
Last Friday was International Women’s Day, and we certainly didn’t hold back celebrating it at work! The color of the year for International Women’s Day was purple, so if you see a theme here in this post, you now know why.
The three amigo’s all dressed in purple.
Back in mid-February the trio of us ladie in the marketing department got together for our weekly meeting and decided it should be celebrated. Being that we do work with 34 people, 32 of them being female. So, throughout the last few weeks I tallied up some of my favorite companies I’ve worked with on my blog, and asked them for favors and donations for goodie bags we were putting together for staff! I was not expecting the incredible amount of loot I managed to accumulate!
Everything was kept a secret until Friday morning. I drove into work a good hour or more before everyone arrived, so I could put a little surprise on everyone’s desks. The other two people in the marketing department did the same, at our other two offices. Everyone got a different package from Marcelle, being that we dived everything up by age group. I blurred out my work place for safety reasons.
I’m telling you, the most popular item which was in each bag, was the durex play vibrations. I kid you not, no one else cared what was in their loot bag once that was spotted. Giggles from the women, some even clipped it onto their belt buckles as a joke. It brought a lot of laughter to the office, let me tell you that much. I won’t be posting any of those photos for obvious reasons. I don’t want any crazy spammers attacking my comments section hah.
Gotta say though, the pop rock chocolate was my favourite thing, along with the Marcelle Cosmetics gift set.
That wasn’t the end of the fun, those loot bags and lunch. Oh nuhnono. We held contests for a few things like Best Dressed, Best Dressed runner up, and some quizzes we had sent out earlier in the week.
L won one of the two quizzes and got a gorgeous brushed metal light gold colored Fossil (Georgia?) watch.Â She said it wasn’t anything she’d pick out for herself, but she absolutely loves it. I can’t wait to see her wear it.
The other prizes consisted of:
- RUSK shampoo gift set + Yankee candle
- Marcelle Cosmetics
- Calvin Klein gift set
- Roberto Cavalli gift set
I was seriously in awe at the generosity of the companies and what they donated. Absolutely incredible. I want to thank each and every company that donated to International Women’s Day. Everyone at work was so shocked, so happy, and exclaimed that it was better than Christmas!
Many many many thanks to making Friday a memorable one.Thumbs up to, and thank you Marcelle Cosmetics, Fossil, Rubbermaid, Coty Canada, Kernels Popcorn, Orville Redenbacher, Durex, Veet, vitaminwater Zero, Cober Printing, Hershey’s, McDonalds, and VH Sauce.
