Today is the first day of spring. The cherry blossom trees seem to be really into it, even if the weather isn’t. I can’t wait to be able to wear flats with no socks! I know that sounds like a weird thing to be excited about but I have been rotating between the same two pairs of boots for
one million years the past six months and I just can’t wait to wear different shoes to work without being afraid of frostbite.
This past weekend was bestie’s Bachelorette. We got a room at the Westin Bayshore in Coal Harbour and holed up for a weekend of girlyness. We watched movies and painted our nails and jumped on the bed and swam in the pool and ordered pizza. It was the greatest. Like being on vacation. Our room had an amazing view, too.
On Saturday night the Columbus Blue Jackets were in town and they stayed on the same floor as us. In the room next to us, in fact. Nat and Maddie left our door open and turned up Kanye really loud after the game was over. My future roommates, ladies and gentlemen. Luckily, none of the hockey players wanted to join our party.
This is the Mac and More from Burgoo. If you haven’t had it yet you should try it. Macaroni and Cheese and BACON.
Nat found these Limited Edition Birthday Oreos and they are so delicious. The icing inside tastes like the stuff from Dunkaroos. Remember Dunkaroos? My Mom never bought them for us as kids so I would always try and sweet talk my more fortunate friends into sharing. Now that I’m an adult I can buy things like Birthday Oreos, Dunkaroos and Reese Puffs for myself. So I guess there are some perks to being a grown up. The trade off is that you have to do your own taxes.
Tonight I’m signing the lease on my new place. This makes moving officially official. I’ve started going through my bookshelves and closet try to get rid of stuff I don’t need anymore so I don’t have to take it all with me when I move. Even with such a tiny place it’s amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in a year. I really hate the packing up part of moving. Setting up a new place is always fun, but cleaning out the old one is the worst. I’ve now done three moves in three years. Hopefully this will be the last one for awhile. Until I get married? Fingers crossed.
Two more days until the Hunger Games! I can barely contain my excitement. Can you believe that Ariana and Jodes and I are nerdy enough to have bought tickets for a 12:00am showing? Don’t answer that. What I really can’t believe is that we all agreed to stay up so late past our bedtime. Uh, ps they released the Official soundtrack today. There is a new song from the Civil Wars (yay!) but also T.Swift, The Arcade Fire and Kid Cudi (?). Not to mention: The Secret Sisters! And that guy from the Swell Season!
Last week, Ariana and I bought tickets to go see Bon Iver in May. So I am guaranteed to see her at least once after she gets married (kidding)! He’s playing at Deer Lake Park so we are going to have a very romantical friend evening with mini donuts and lemonade. Hopefully it stops snowing by then.
The enchantment of the drawing game lasted about a week for me. It was fun when I was playing four people. Now I’m up to about ten games and it is just too much. I can’t keep up with everyone. So I’ve stopped trying.
During a very brief shopping excursion on Saturday afternoon, I got these awesome peachy-pink pants. I am totally in love. And also terrified of spilling something on them. If only spring and warmer weather would actually, finally arrive to match my pants.
