What a weekend I have to recap! So here it goes:
Friday night we popped around the corner with the dogs to visit J & K, who just moved around the corner. They have 2 dogs, one is a malamute (named Malakai(sp)) and the other one is a St. Bernard crossed with a Great Dane (named Keg). Keg is pretty much M and I's dream dog, because he would love to have a Great Dane and I would love to have a St. Bernard. However, Keg is only 6 months old and weighs over 100 pounds, but he is a good looking dog. You probably wondering what he would look like, so I will tell you, he is the size of a Great Dane, same hair as a G.D., however his hair is softer than a GD, his head is big like a St. Bernard and his feet are just HUGE! He still has more growing to do! Anyways, the dogs had a great play date, in fact Lily and Keg have a sad case of puppy love! They even cuddled! So we visited with K and J for the evening and headed back home.
Saturday I went bridesmaid dress shopping with N in London. We found the dresses, yes that is pluralized because my dress is different from the bridesmaids.
This is what my dress will look like, except red, with a black belt!!
This is what the bridesmaids will be wearing, but in red, with a red belt!
So after we picked out the dresses we headed over to a shopping plaza with a Winners and Home Sense. I bought myself a new jacket for $22.00, 650 thread count Egyptian cotton sheet set for $32.00, wine stopper for 70 cents, and a hat and scarf set by XOXO for $11.00. Great deals again!! It had started to snow hard when we left Winners, so we quickly popped into Home Sense, where I found another sheet set, but I didn't want to wait in the long line because of the weather, so we left. We grabbed some lunch and headed for the highway, but decided to try one other winners to see if N could get some snow pants for a trip she taking her students on. I bought a new bikini for $11, Adidas shorts for $8, a grey mock neck short-sleeved sweater for $8. We headed home, however the weather had alternate plans! N drives a Honda civic and the snow was coming down like no tomorrow, the highway was as bad as I had ever seen it, no direct lanes, instead of 3 there were 2, but once again, you couldn't tell if you were actually in a lane! It was BAD, we maybe did 40 km/hour. You could not see 1 foot in front of you. We decided to get off and try the back roads. We stopped at a gas station to clean our wiper blades and I offered to drive because I have more experience driving in the snow than N. The car was pushing the snow and I could feel the snow rubbing the bottom of the car. It was crazy. I could have been driving in the middle of a field and wouldn't have know the difference. We almost went in the ditch I don't even know how many times. We decided to stop at her mother-in-law to be's and I would have my brother-in-law pick me up there, since I was supposed to babysit H. We found the driveway and I turned quickly, as cars were in the ditch everywhere and got stuck at the bottom of the driveway (which was uphill). I opened the door and went to step out and the snow was higher than my boot! N and I were laughing at this point! We had such a stressful drive and this was just the ending we needed!
My brother-in-law came and picked me up from there and we headed back to their place. There was no way M was going to come and help me babysit H, so we had dinner without him. I gave H a bath and got her ready for bed and we cuddled on the couch watching one of her TV shows. E and A left for their dance and H and I cuddled on the couch. After about 15 minutes, I took H to bed, and when she crawled into bed half asleep from me rocking her in her chair, she looks up at me after touching one her soft pillows and says "thats niiiice". That is her new saying, holding the i in nice. Too cute! I love that kid! I can't believe she will be 2 next weekend!! Time has gone by soo quickly! M came and picked me up after 11:30, when the snow had finally subsided. I cannot believe how much snow came down in such a small amount of time. M said he even saw a snow plow in the ditch when he came to get me! The roads weren't great when he came to get me, but we made it home safe! That was almost the 1st night since we were married that I would have been without him! Crazy!!
Sunday, I slept in until 10 AM. We headed into town to get some groceries and M needed to get new shorts for volleyball. We stopped at another Winners and M bought jogging pants, I bought a sweater cardi and a button down shirt for work. I also saw a sale at Reitmans, so we stopped in there because I needed a new pair of work pants! I bought 1 pair of dress pants, cords, black pants, a pair of jeans and 2 shirts for $60 bucks! CRAZY good deals! We headed back home and I snuggled into bed for a nap and woke up just in time for the Superbowl game!
Can I say GO GREEN BAY GO!!! That's right, I was rooting for Green Bay!! Good game, but the half time show sucked!! I was disappointed, not that BEP are my favorite! Will I Am was good though!
The reason I am blogging so late today is because J and I had a little trip to town and a lunch date today!
Girls night is happening shortly, but that is what I was up to this weekend. I will have to get caught up on every ones blogs tomorrow!
Oh might I mention that the snow on my front lawn is now higher than my bedroom windows? Yep, it is crazy! I have not seen this much snow in a LONG time! Oh and guess what, it is still bloody snowing out! Less than 3 weeks to go and I am outta this country!
Hope you have all had a great Monday!
