The Awesome, the Great and a Bit of the Other Stuff!

I almost didn’t do one of these because of my friend’s wedding recap.  What can I say? That really took a whole lot of energy.  I just feeling revived now and well, something else is up, but we’ll get to that in a little bit! 

Lets start with some awesome, shall we? 🙂

For one, I started and finished the first season of Orange is the New Black!

I didn’t know what to expect from this but man, it was pretty good. I breezed through 13 episodes in the last 2 days or so, on and off between living my life.  Its been bringing on some late nights.  Probably shouldn’t but its just so good.  There are some good laughs and some pretty good twists but I have to say, I saw the season finale, like the last 5 minutes, coming from the beginning of the episode.  There’s a whole lot of foreshadowing in this series.  Still, they have some good characters! I’m looking forward to season 2, at least I believe I read that there will be one 😉

I’m really behind with TV series so I’m slowly catching up! I haven’t quite decided what to watch next yet.  Probably get back to some recommendations first before doing more series watching.  We’re nearing the end of recommendations month and its been pretty shameful.  I haven’t watched as much as I wanted.  Life just got so busy but I’m going to try to make it up in the last week. 

Yesterday (Saturday), I met up with one of my friends to go check out the Expo Manger Santé! Its basically a exposition with stalls from different same and big retailers on healthy foods and just a healthy living and all that. I’ve been meaning to implement that into my life so I felt like it’d be cool to go there.

I came home with a bag full of pamphlets and business cards.  Those are my faves all compiled for you 🙂 

For a lot of you, this might not be a big thing but if you don’t know, I’m lactose intolerant (and a pretty serious one that recurred a few years back with my IBS) along with a whole bunch of sensitive dietary limitations.  At this fair, I bring your attention to first L’Ancetre because they have a product which is lactose free cheese.  And second exhibition is Rawesome which allowed to eat my cheesecake.  I haven’t eat either of those things in almost 6 years! I LOVE THAT STUFF! I’m serious, that was one of the happiest and most awesome moments of my life. 

I’m telling you right here! Your health is the most important thing and never take it for granted because you don’t want to be like me.  To cut out the things you love most in life is pretty hard.  I may be simple that food makes me this happy but it does 😉 

I have plans to visit some of these restaurants also.  My friend kept going on about Aux Vivres and they have this super delicious Dragon sauce.  There’s some pretty nice concepts and some cool healthier options for my baking adventures which I’m going to look into. It was an educational and fun expo. 


Oh and well, whats great was that yesterday’s supposed 15cm of snow storm was way less. I’m ready for spring any time. Winter, please get the memo 😉

Today has been really great also! My boyfriend and I had gotten these coupons for Tuango for Granby Zoo to see their Special Babies event.

I have never gone to Granby Zoo in winter and today was pretty chilly especially in the outskirts.  We spent a good few hours and and took a bunch of pictures that I’m going to sort through. I’ll have a post up for that tomorrow 🙂

Something else is that we’re going to sign for the official transfer of our new place this coming week so a lot of it is coming down to figuring out the final details.  Earlier today, after the zoo, we headed to check out some liquidation stores to see if we could get an idea of deals on appliances and stuff we could use.



Also, we went to get some paint color combinations and whatnot and spent time putting together what we want to use for the rooms. Those are all of the choices that we have for the house.  We have a good idea what to do but now its just getting the house and seeing if its actually a good match 🙂

Okay, that was my weekend but whats one of my posts without some randomness!

Anyone know what those flowers are called? My mom has tons of plants but we never know what the actual names are.  Its kind of funny.  We’ve had this one for as long as I can remember too.  

Wait, so far we’ve all been in the awesome and great territory so a bit of the bad creeped in.  The ridiculous stye has returned in a mild format and I’m hoping to employ every possible way to get rid of it before it gets worse.  If you don’t remember, I had to go have a small cut/operation to get rid of it back in September and November.  That was REALLY painful, so I’m going to try my best to avoid going through that.  Hopefully a new year also brings some better luck. So I went out and got myself a bunch of stuff including finding back that antibiotic drops my opthamologist prescribed me if this happened again.


Wish me luck… I’m going to stay positive! It sucks but life goes on!

I never leave on a negative note so here’s some music! 🙂

Enjoy! Hope you’ve all had an absolutely awesome weekend!
