Glitter Rock

Sarah and I – 2010

I’ve spent the last 15 minutes or so picking the glitter and modge podge off my nails from last nights crafting session. I’ve got just 14 days left to get everything ready for Sarah’s bachelorette party, and its crunch time.

I keep feeling like I’m forgetting something, even though I have dozen’s of lists made. I’m a bit of a planner you see. The day of the bachelorette, DJ and I are going to have maybe three hours to pull the whole thing together, and the only way I can see us getting it done and having it meet my super high expectations is to have every single detail planned and prepared for.

When it comes to hosting parties, I like to plan them, prepare for them, and have them set up so that they basically run themselves once they start. I want to partake in the party, not have to putter around making sure everything is getting done. I guess that’s why I have gone so far as to put together a playlist for the evening. Plug in the iPod, hit play, and that’s one less thing to have to work about for the rest of the night.

And since its #BackThatAzzUp Friday, what better day than now to share it with all of you.

It’s a pretty random list, quite a few different artists and genres. Basically the only requirement for a song to make the list is for it to be decently upbeat and fun to listen to. And obviously it isn’t complete yet, I’m gonna need a lot more songs for it to last all night.
What songs would you add to the playlist?

Its That Time Again

Wow! I am truly overwhelmed with the response to yesterday’s post. It was by far the most comments, emails, and page views  love, I ever got in one day. And lets be honest, there were even a few weeks with far less. So thank you all, for brightening my day, making this all feel worth it, and for you stupendous advice for my trip

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming, today is Friday which happens to be my second favorite F word yo. Friday is a great day. The day you can drink guilt free, look forward to sleeping in the next morning, and justify doing nadda all evening. It also happens to be #FanFriday with Sarah, a link up I always read, but never participate in. But all that is gonna change next week friends, because her hilarious post today got the wheels turning in my head, and I’ve got some really inspired topics I’d like to talk about.

Talking about sports makes me think of exercise, which makes me think of September Goals, and since its Friday, that means its time for another update.

ONE //  I haven’t ate out AT ALL this week. Not once. Well until this morning, I had a French Vanilla and breakfast sandwich from Tim Hortons. And I don’t count that, because it was paid for with money from the recycling program at work. And I also don’t count the lunch I had with my bff, cause I paid for it with a gift card, and I hadn’t seen her in a month of Sundays so ya know, it was kind of necessary.

TWO //  Holy crap, zero shopping this week. None whatsover. No clothes, no shoes, no groceries, I did good.

THREE //  I was completely 100% unsuccessful with this one this week. Zero exercise completed, or attempted for that matter. Unless of course you course you count lying around watching my newest obsession, Chicago Fire.

FOUR //  I’m back up to 136. Not happy. But not surprised. Haven’t done much to help myself with this one this week.

FIVE //  I’ve done quite well with this one again.

SIX //  Happy to say I definitely met this goal!

And now to celebrate my moderate success with September Goals, and the fact that the work week is nearly over…

Hello Sunshine!

Summer has taken quite a while to reach these parts. We had a decent month of May, but let me tell you, June, well June and I, we aren’t on speaking terms. It was cold and windy, and it rained nearly every day.

July has been pretty good so far, sunshine every day and the temperatures have been great. If only the wind would stop. But thats wishful thinking here in Newfoundland.

But I’m a take what I can get kinda girl, so I’ve been soaking up every bit of sun I can, and doing my best to take advantage of the not freezing my ass off temperatures.

As you can tell les jambes are ghostly white so I need all the sunshine I can get.

My idea of the perfect way to spend a few hours in the sun.
Last evening it was finally time to put the boats for the rowing club in the water. When we were done a few of the experienced rowers decided to go out for a spin. I can’t wait to try it out.

I know what you’re thinking. Kathryn, I thought you said it was sunny. Doesn’t look very sunshiney in these pics.  Okay, so maybe you weren’t thinking that, but just in case you were, I feel I should explain that it was in fact super sunny yesterday. And that haziness you are seeing in these pictures is not fog, or clouds. It is smoke. Thats right, thick, yucky, smelly smoke. There’s a forest fire 480 miles away (near Labrador City) and that lovely wind I was telling you about is bringing the smoke our way. 
And even though Whitney is off enjoying her long weekend. I’m still #backinthatazzup.
