hot child in the city.

what friendship means to me

Wearing the most tacky and yet wonderful holiday cowboy hat that I bought for you at the dollar store despite all your attempts to keep your rodeo princess past a secret.

I want a pegasus for christmas.

unfortunately, I don't think j will be able to follow through...

we're too legit to quit.

This past week has been pretty exciting. A few things have happened...

1. I went to story time at Pottery Barn for kids with my nephew and niece and I'm not sure who was more excited about the Star Wars everything (toys, backpacks, plates and SHEETS!) my nephew or me.

2. Christmas is in full swing. Christmas songs and Christmas smells waft out of every shop and every house... yummy!

3. It is full fledged sweater season.

4. It's definitely the time of year for my favourite snow sports. Snowshoeing. Ice skating. Snowboarding. LOVE IT!

5. Jacob and I are getting married! We're kicking ourselves for not having a house to have a good old engagement party at... and we're thinking tropical destination to make it legit. November 2011 everyone! save the date!!!

ah, the holidays. I get so excited I can't even sleep on Christmas eve. There will have to be some self-administration of booze and other sorts of festive things to help Mayne get to that sleepy place. scotch and lemon water anyone?


snow in vancity

an early start to winter in Vancouver, get out your winter weather clothes it's sticking around! It's long underwear, wool socks and toques all the way...

one hundred days

went to Rodney's for a friend's birthday... we arrived a 1/2 hour before it opened so we popped into the opus hotel / one hundred days for a cocktail. pretty great venue in my eyes, loved the concept. check it out here



well, back from Cali and I learned a few things.

-I'm pretty good at dice - 4 -5 -6! trips! that's how I roll
-I remember why I was so into skater boys in high school
-I am impressed with the amount of alcohol I can consume on short notice
-Alaska airlines does not have tv's or blankets on their ice cold planes - FAIL
-I like my job more than I realized
-bloody marys sub in for bloody ceasars quite nicely and have proven to be an awesome way to start a terrific night of partying.

on the whole, an amazing trip.

and what better way to end it than with a happy hour of asian fusion food, friends, PBRs and a beauty of a sunset.

Dear Browns,

I forgive you for giving me the runaround regarding these boots. It's probably better for my credit card after all. But really, they were perfection in all their last year's model 50% off glory.

If there was ever a day that I missed our lovely Alanimal it is today.

Looking at this decor really made me flash back to curling my hair in her room, having a shmoke out the window and listening to tunes.

Oh, the good old days.
