Early Birthday!

I know I talk about this girl on my blog alllll the time, but seriously, Megan from Moonbeamwishes is amazizng.  Today I received suuuuch a lovely early birthday package from her in the mail!  She's so sweet, kind & thoughtful.  I took some photos of what I got.  Actually, I haven't finished opening everything... haha!  I want to wait until my birthday to open the last gift.  Hahaha it's going to be hard, but it's sitting under the Christmas tree right now waiting until the 12th! 
This is the mystery gift that I still haven't opened!  & the card that is waiting until Christmas!

She is so incredibly thoughtful!  It definitely made my day to find all of that in the mail!  Thank you sooooo much Megan!  Also, we don't have those Crunch Crisps in Canada (at least I've never seen them!) & they are DELICIOUS!  Haha.  Thank you!  

I'm actually working on a lil' somethin' somethin' for her right now!  What could it beee?  (Terrible photo, ha!)

Bucket List - 101 in 1,001

This weekend I'm taking a class at The Purple Purl in Toronto to learn how to spin my own yarn!  I'm sooooo pumped, haha.  Also, for my birthday we're going to have afternoon tea at Annona!  

Remember that little list of things I wanted to do?  I think I might keep adding to it and turn it into a permanent page on my blog.  See what I can accomplish, and document everything that I do!  Do you have any suggestions for things to add?  Or maybe you have a list on your blog (or in your head!) of things you want to do one day.  A bucket list, 101 in 1,001, or whatever!  Leave a link so I can check it out (and maybe find some ideas!).

(This post was going to be a lot longer & I was going to upload photos, but my computer is being sooooooo slow lately!  I have lots & lots of photos to share with you guys!)

Monday's Finds, Part 13: Link Up Party!

Hey everyone!  Time for another edition of Monday's Finds!  I'm turning it into a link up party again, even though last week I was the only one who participated, ha!  Oh well!  Maybe this week someone will! 
Burt's Bees chapstick.  Now that it's getting cooler out I'm piling this stuff on.  Okay, who am I kidding... I wear this stuff 365. 
These little lamb pillows!  I need to learn how to sew so I can make a ton of these!  (Unless there is someone out there who wants to make me one!  haha.)
I've been looking at tons of photos of other people's SMASH* BOOKS!  I might have picked one out on Saturday for a Christmas present... I'm waiting until Christmas though, I swear!
I totally do this.  (By the way, it's almost my birthday month!!!  12/12! haha.)  I need to get a new calendar for 2012... the calendar that I have hanging up is a sheep calendar from 2010... ha!
Doesn't these look delicious?!  One of these days I'm going to try and make macaroons... I'm sure they won't even compare to the ones I ate in Paris, but I'll try...
This pretty print is great!

Doesn't this look like the perfect way to spend an afternoon?  (I am picturing some knitting off to the side, ha.  & Keith, of course!)
I want this shirt!!  It's so true, plus it looks extremely cozy!
Amazing photo.
I would loooooove to hang out here!
And a couple of blogs that I'm currently looooving (hopefully posting about a couple of blogs for now will make up for the fact that I haven't yet updated my blog roll!): Moments of a Libra and Shutterbean!

To join in on the link up party, post about some things that are inspiring you, make you laugh, or brighten up your Monday!  You can interpret "Monday's Finds" however you want!  Just be sure to post your link at the bottom of this, and link back to the party!

Day Zero Project

The other day I signed up to the Day Zero Project.  Okay, that day was yesterday.  And I haven't really added anything to my list, but it's fun to pick between the two ideas on this page.  Anyway, I just wanted to share a small little list of things that I want to do, hopefully sometime soon.  (I think on my birthday - December 12th! - I might be going to afternoon tea?!  Maaaaaaaybe!)  Maybe I'll set a goal to do all of these things by this time next year.  Make sure I save up money to do everything. 

Have afternoon tea at Annona in Toronto:
Go on a wine tour:

Buy this sampler from KnitPicks of 120 balls of yarn & document everything I made with it:

Just a small list... maybe I'll add to it.  But hopefully by this time next year I will have done all three things!  What are some things you want to do?

Monday's Finds Part 12: Link Up Party!

 Hey everyone! I'm finally feeling better... last week sucked, ha!  I really didn't have much energy to blog or do anything, so today is going to be the first day of Mondays Finds Blog Link Up Party!!!  (That's a mouthful.)  I'm so excited!  Hopefully you will all join in!  You can interpret it however you want to.   You don't have to use the "layout" that I do, you don't have to post photos, do whatever you want!  Just make sure to link back to this blog post!  If you want, you can take the button at the bottom of the page (Made by Megan!  Thanks so much!).  Anyway, enough talking, here is my post!!

Hahahaha awesome.
How delicious does this sound?  Apple Pie Dip & Cinnamon Sugar chips?  YUM!  I think I'm going to have to make this over the holidays!
This room is AMAZING. 
Hahaha this is so true
I looooove asparagus, and this recipe seems delicious. 
Clear polish + eyeshadow = polish.  What an awesome idea!  (Although, I don't own any eyeshadow, ha.)
Okay... so it might be a bit early to start thinking about growing a garden, but what a great idea to label everything!
...yeah, I totally do that.  (Also, what a bad feeling when you're in the shower & you grab the shampoo or conditioner & it's completely EMPTY.  Haha!)
These look so great!  (But, I'm not a fan of frosting... ha.)

And a couple of blogs that I'm really loving this week: moonbeamwishes & heart of light.

I'm feeling the same as I did yesterday, but I had to share this video with you guys:

I am slowly going crazy...

SO.  Thursday I had the itchy rash.  Woke up on Friday & the rash was back, and worse.  Saturday was fine (and I hung out with some friends I hadn't seen in a while!  Missed you guys...), then Sunday night the rash came back, and my joints were sore.  I woke up Monday and all of my joints (toes, fingers, wrists, ankles, knees and elbows) were so sore.  I could hardly move my fingers or toes, and getting out of bed hurt like hell.  Taking Advil every 4 hours seems to help, but once it wears off or I wake up... it sucks.  This morning it was even worse.  I tried to get out of bed & I had to sit back down again because it hurt so bad.  I tried to get an appointment to see my doctor today, but she was all book... so I had to head to the walk in clinic.  

I think going to the walk in clinic is a form of torture, ha!  You sit around with all kinds of sick people, people who love to tell everyone & anyone their whole life story (which, is fine... but the whole waiting room probably doesn't want to hear it), kids who do not understand the meaning of being quiet, and all you want to do is lay in bed in silence because you are sick.  Anyway, after waiting in the walk in clinic for hours, I got sent to the lab next door to wait yet again to get some blood work done.  And, no advice for what to do. I'm just going to keep taking the Advil every 4 hours and hope when I wake up tomorrow, I can move my joints.

I'm going through withdrawal from not knitting or crocheting.  My fingers are too sore to do it.  So, I've been laying in bed (too tired to go on the computer... this is really the first time I've been on it.  So, sorry about not blogging or commenting on any posts!), reading, and playing sudoku.  I am going craaaaaaazy!  Haha.  Thankfully I have a ton of sudoku books to play.  But, it's times like these that I miss having a laptop.

Do you guys have any tips on how to not go insane while you're stuck in bed?!  I can at least play around on my blackberry, so, feel free to keep my entertained by funny links or send me e-mails telling me jokes (haha).  What do you do when you're home sick?

I. Am. So. Itchy.

Thursday night I broke out in a rash on my arms, then Friday I woke up & my arms and legs were covered.  Remember back in April when I was covered in hives?  These are different... but just as itchy.  Today my feet were covered.  Uuuuuuuuuuuugh!  Haha.  It's driving me crazy, I can't stop itching!

I had an oatmeal bath & took some medication, but it's still so itchy.  Any tips for how to deal with it?!

Today is my little sister's birthday.  Happy birthday SarBear!  (Hahaha I don't know why, but when I type/text her name out, I always write SarBear.)

Blog Schedule?

Me & my buds, Sophie & Wolfgang.  This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the post, but I like it.
Man, I've been having such a hard time figuring out what to blog about today.  I was going to show you some photos of Tim & De's Buck and Doe (from uh, JUNE.) but I really didn't take many photos.  Then I was going to share some photos from De's wedding shower, but I haven't uploaded those to picasa yet.  (They are uploaded to facebook, but facebook does weird things to photos...)  Actually, most of the photos I want to share with you guys aren't uploaded to picasa yet.  It's so frustrating using a computer that I can't upload photos to.  One day I will save up enough to buy a new computer.  (And then I will finally be able to use PHOTOSHOP again.  & teach myself new things, so I can make this blog even bettttter.)  But, until then, I have to borrow my sister's computer. 

Something I wanted to start on this blog is sharing my favourite blogs with you guys.  There are so many amazing blogs out there that don't get the recognition that they deserve.  Everyone knows the "big/famous" blogs, but what about all of the other people that work just as hard on their blogs?  Once a week I'll be sharing one of my favourite blogs.  (Also, I'm going to be updating my blog roll.  So, stay tuned for that.)

I think I'm going to get into the habit of blogging more.  Maybe one or two times a day, on some days.  I want to set up some sort of blog schedule so that I stick to it.  How do you guys feel about blog posts on the weekends?  When I first started blogging I think I posted on the weekends, but lately I haven't at all.  Do you guys read blogs on the weekends?   Or should I just stick to posting on Monday to Friday? 

This post is totally all over the place... ha.  Tomorrow I'm going to upload a bunch of photos, so I can share more stuff with you guys.  And not just ramble on like this... unless you enjoy this.  In that case, I'm pretty good at rambling & I can do this more often!  Ha.

Anyway... tonight Keith & I are going to catch up on Breaking Bad (Keith slept through the entire 3rd season and I didn't want to watch the 4th season without him.) and I'm going to make MYSELF a blanket, ha!  I finished Keith's and now I want to make myself one with a nice colour scheme.    What are your plans for tonight?
