A peek at the past week (how I’ve been): Hot. Effing hot, people. 32 degrees IN THE HOUSE. I am not made for this crap. Ahem, aside from the heat, things have been ok. My mother’ s house closed without incident. I hosted a baby shower for the amazing S&K which went really well. I was sick for Canada Day, so I just stayed in and lived in my PJs. Over all, good week.
I am thinking… about what to wear for my friend’s wedding this weekend. Brytani is one of my oldest friends (we met when we were around 6 yrs old), and this Saturday she’s marrying the love of her life at one of the most beautiful venue’s in town: The NAC. Amaaaaazing! I have a dress in mind, but, for whatever reason, I always second guess myself around this group of people. I want to look my best, ya know? Anyway, we’ll see. We may also have to find something for Pat to wear if his suit doesn’t fit.
I am thankful for…Air conditioning at work :D Yah yah, I’ll move on, I promise. I’m also thankful for the sketchy iphone case dealer I found on the internetz! I broke my beautiful plaid case that I had before (which was purchased for about 50$ because I dropped and cracked my new iphone within a week of buying it). I found this guy after seeing the gorgeous Cath Kidson cases on pinterest: I did a search and found a guy in toronto selling these cases for cheap and shipping them for a really reasonable price. Purchased, recieved and now loved:
My husband and in-laws think that this is further proof that I’m a 98 year old woman trapped in a 28 year old woman’s body. I’m ok with this.
From the kitchen… Did a bit of cooking this week, but was too exhausted to take pictures of it. Instead, I give you images from pinterest!
Here’s the recipe. By the way, that site rocks. It lists a meal plan for the week, with a complete shopping list and all the recipes. Love it! Anyway, this recipe was good, but would definitely work better with smaller tortillas. We used the big ones and found that they were too much to handle by hand, which made dipping difficult. Also, I didn’t find it that creamy. I would definitely recommend adding more cheese or perhaps avacado.
I am wearing…My new capris/office shorts. Love them! I want a ton more, in different colours! These ones:
I am creating… Nothing to see here folks, move along. Move along.
I am going… to hopefully see A Perfect Circle this weekend! They are performing on Sunday evening. Woo!
I am reading… Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins. The second book of the Hunger Games series, which I am loving so far.
I am hoping… for the weather to break a bit. It’s been way too hot for me. Also, I’m hoping that estate stuff improves, that we have a good time at the wedding this weekend and that we can get our A/C fixed soon.
I am hearing… More of The Weepies, lots of Tori Amos and some Dragonette.
Around the house…I don’t even want to talk about the house. I haven’t been able to clean much because we’ve been so busy, sick and hot. I tidied up this past weekend, but then we did some dog sitting for my BiL, which made my washing of the kitchen floors a useless activity. That’s ok, they were so cute, I immediately forgave them:
One of my favorite things…Finding a book to get lost in. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy Hunger Games as much as I am, but I read the entire first book in one day. It’s made the stress of this past week much more bearable.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Some shopping for wedding gifts and wedding outfits, the wedding itself, hopefully a concert and then back to work next week. I’m also starting my part time hours, so starting next week I have fridays off. Woo!
Here is picture! Yay!
