It’s been a long ass time…

Well hello there!

It amazes me I still knew how to log on AND figure out how to add a new post. I can’t even call myself a blogger anymore, that is how much of a slacker I am over here.

It makes me sad in a way, blogging used to be such a big part of my life – and now, it just isn’t. I think blogging was something I did when I had something better but not as exciting to do. Homework? Nah, I want to blog. Or blogging was an excuse to get out of the house. It gave me an excuse to go do things, to experience more, to say ‘yes’ more often. It was a way to document the little things that I otherwise would have forgotten if it didn’t show up on my TimeHop.

When I started to phase out blogging, I feel like a lot of my favourite bloggers were doing the same. Posts were getting more sporadic. No one was showing up as often as they were. But after signing on here again, I realized a lot of you are picking it back up again – not to mention Charlene, totally publicly peer pressured me to get my ass back in this chair and post something for me to read. So Charlene, this attempt to at least show up here a little bit more often is going out to you.

SO I guess you need a little bit of a catch up of my life?

And this kind of sucks. Because at this moment I realized how little there is to catch up on. Am I literally this boring? Fo’ realz?

I landed my dream job. It is amazing. I can’t say enough wonderful things about it. I work from home, so I have a pretty awesome desk area. Not as awesome as it will be when Jamie and I get our own house and I have a full room to decorate, but it’s still pretty awesome.

Jamie won season hockey tickets from the newspaper, and somehow I have been lucky enough to not attend one game. I am telling you – life is good.

I got glasses. Sort of. I was getting really bad headaches. Google told me I either had a brain tumour, or I needed glasses. I went to the Optometrist, who said my vision was fine, I just had some slight eye strain from staring at screens all day. So I have glasses, but they don’t have a prescription in them. They reflect blue light – so they are basically like sunglasses for my computer/tv/kindle/devices.

I still drink too many Monsters, and should own stock in Starbucks.

Really not feeling this season of Greys. I’m not a Meredith fan – I don’t like her drama. I need more Alex.

My Christmas tree is up. It went up a week later than I would have liked, but now that it’s up – it’s so beautiful. I love Christmas. CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS.

I signed up for the Reddit Secret Santa, which immediately just stepped up my ‘coolness’ on the ‘cool scale’. I kept going back and forth between national vs international partner – and decided to go international, because #MapleSyrup

I tried shawarma, and I loved it. It did hurt my stomach a little though, but I am hoping it was something besides the shawarma. I am yet to go back though.

Seriously, am I really this boring?

I guess so. That’s all I can really update you on to catch you up to speed.

How was this post Charlene?

Practicing Excited Faces Because Of Pizza

“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”  – Mark Twain

One of the downfalls of doing nothing but watching Grey’s for the past two weeks, is that they are almost always eating pizza. Due to this, I have been craving nothing but pizza. Thankfully, Pizza is one of Jamie’s favourite foods, so he was totally down with pizza for date night.

As excited as I was all week waiting, nothing prepared me for how excited I was all through Friday while waiting. This all caused me to realize I do not have a “super duper excited face”. I am not sure which face looks like it should be my new excited face.

excited-faceWhat number do you think is the best excited face?? I am leaning towards number 4, 5, and 8. I think they are the most “excited”.. I don’t know, what would you suggest?

Oh, I also got my pizza.

Grey’s and Donkey Loving

“I’ve decided that donkeys are universally cute… When you pet their noses, they blink their eyes and bashfully look away as if embarrassed. And when donkeys hee-haw, they have their mouths and lips curled up as if they are smiling.” –  Johnny Rico

Wow, I haven’t gone this long from blogging (or even signing in) ever. I have been suffering from really bad bloggers block, not to mention the real other reason – 12 days ago, I started watching Grey’s Antatomy on Netflix… I won’t say much more besides the fact I started season 7 today, and all my tweets in the past 12 days were consumed with Greys, and informing Taryn over at PeaceAndPizza what guest stars I recognize, I am sure she is about to block me… I am such a loser. Seriously though, that seems to be the majority of the conversations I have been having with friends lately…

Yesterday though, I took a slight break to read up about my favourite animal. I have never been super open about this because people generally give strange looks when I bring it up.. So I am going to go public with this… Yes, my favourite animal is a donkey. Just thinking about them make me shriek with excitement. Have you seen that video of Kristen Bell with the sloth? That excitement she feels for sloths, is like me with donkeys… Like I said, I am such a loser.

Anyways, I was googling donkey images and then I thought to myself “hmmm, I wonder if there is a donkey sanctuary or donkey petting farm around me”….. well, one thing led to another, and I was pitching a day trip to Jamie.

He agreed and I was just ecstatic. I AM GOING TO A DONKEY SANCTUARY. We just have to pick a date and we are gone. It is about 3 hours away so it will be a nice little day trip with a whole lot of donkey loving.

It gets better though, I started doing more research on this sanctuary.. I learned the best news of all. Jamie didn’t seem half as excited as I was, but I don’t think we share the same passion for donkeys.

I am so pumped for all of this. It’s crazy that this sanctuary is so close to us. Apparently it is the donkey sanctuary of Canada, which makes it even crazier that it is so close. I am thrilled!!!!!
