Well, I am actually super stoked to post this week. I have tons of pictures for this update. Some of which you may have already seen if you are on facebook. I stole some from my work website, some from other blogs, and some from my friend’s camera. Only a few more days until I hopefully get a camera of my own! The birthday countdown is on: t – 5 days. I am excited for this Saturday because a bunch of us girls are going out to supper, not just for my b-day, more just to get out! I wanted to start by saying thanks to Kristi for posting! She is the original blogger to me, and I missed her updates! I stole some of these pictures from one of her posts a bit ago. They are from the going away party that Annie had for her and Matt. It was fun, and the room was filled with kids! Oh P.S Kristi, my friend said her friend met you guys out there, and that they live near by? How wierd is that?
So, here we go, my weekly rundown. (I kept little notes of what I did during the week so I would remember what to write. Yes, tragically my memory is THAT bad!
Thursday: I was so excited to get home and watch a brand spankin’ new episode of Grey’s and quelle surprise, I fell asleep before it came on. It was supposed to be on at 9, but it didn’t come on until 10 and my little eyes just couldn’t stay open!
Friday: Worked all day, had a nice lunch for Joyce’s birthday (thanks April!) at Tomasino’s. I had their spinach cheese manicotti. It was really good. And the bread they served it with was awesome too. That night I went up to visit Kellie and watch my missed episode of Grey’s. as usual, it was stellar. Too bad this week there isn’t a new one, I don’t know why they do that. I hope it renews for another season, but something tells me it won’t (because of all the drama with the actors etc.)
Saturday: I was soooo ready for the weekend this week. I was excited to sleep in, which I didn’t really get to do because my in-laws called at like 8:30 in the morning. I was uber sour about that, since I couldn’t get back to bed after. That evening Josh and I went to a murder mystery party at Adele and Jessica’s. It was so much fun. We got to dress up like our characters and act like them. Greg White even had an accent down, complete with local sayings (“well butter me up and call me greasy!”). I was trying to post picture of this event, but I can't get it to work. If you are on Facebook, you can check them there. Side note: the guest list included: Chris Bungay, Robbie Brown, Greg White, Rachel not sure of her last name, Jess, Adele, Josh and myself. When we got back from the festivities that evening, Josh and I went right online to see if we could buy a box party set as well. We found one from Target, but they don’t ship to Canada. What kinda bummer is that?!
Sunday: After that wicked good time on Saturday, I had a hard time getting up for church. It was a long day, we were in nursery again, which I still don’t fully love, but atleast the kids are cute. I just feel so dis-included (I don’t think that’s a word, but that’s how I felt) from R.S. It makes me sad L That evening we got invited to Meaghan and Jason’s for supper. Jason made some wicked whipped potatoes and some nice chicken. Kellie was there too, and she brought spinach salad. Josh and I brought Nanaimo bars for dessert. I love hanging out with my friends. Everyone is so busy all the time that its hard to get a moment. When we do, it’s always so great.
Monday: It was not too warm out that day, like it should be for spring time. Joyce knows of a nice spot down on the waterfront where when you sit there, it blocks the wind and the cold, and it can be like really cold out, and you’ll still be warm there. We went there for lunch and it was nice. I didn’t want to go back to work for the afternoon.
Tuesday: I went to work, as per usual, and walked up to Pete’s Frootique on my lunchtime. They have these really wicked oranges right now. They are like really really tiny, but soooo sweet and juicy (check out Regina Spektor’s song “That time”, it talks about tangerines, good times). I don’t even like citrus things but I loved these. Josh was working that evening, so I called Adele and Jess up. We hung out for a while and then I came home to bed (no shock there). Wednesday: Oh yesterday, what happened. I was sick. I was sick on Tuesday as well, but yesterday was worse, and today is the worstest. Unfortunatly, I can’t go home early because Lyndsay is sick as well, and is already at home L We’re just not doing well down here on the first floor! But back to Wednesday. Josh picked me up from work and we went grocery shopping (which I flippin’ love, no, I am serious, I do!). We bought a nice rack of ribs and are can’t wait to get that done on our bbq (which Josh set up this week, I don’t remember which day, but we already used it twice and I love it). Then we had to go to a meeting for nursery at the church. I didn’t get home until almost 8. I was not a happy camper about that because it was a super long day and I wasn’t feeling well and well you get the point, no sense in me whining.
So, as I said, I am still sick today. Its just a cold, but I hate it. I am thinking I am going to be better tomorrow, I don’t normally have colds for more than 4 days, fingers crossed. I figured I would leave you with some pictures of work. I love it here. Its like the coolest place, as you’ll see. If you are ever near the brewery market, stop on by and I’ll get you’re a slushie! Here are the pics:This is the entrance. We're in the brewery market. People can never find us, but I promise, if you look at the picture, we do have a sign above the door.
And this is one of the team rooms.
