Winter is Here with Icy Roads, Lots of Snow and Parties!

My fellow friends and bloggers, this week, you know winter is here. Why?

Well, after the mild weekend passed, it came back on Monday with decreasing temperatures all the way to Thursday and what does that bring? My most hated part of winter: ICE.

Because you know, I bought some kickass snow boots last year and as deep as those groves under the boots are, it does not grip on ice.  So just my luck that the first ice we get, I add on my many injuries this year and my body goes all creative and I slip walking to the bus stop on Tuesday morning because there was a bus coming and I stepped on the foot of a driveway. Which begs the question of how the F did they get out of their house without falling? Excuse my anger..moving on, while most times I land on my very well-padded butt or even on my hand, I landed on my knee.  Bone to cement, my friends, hurt a lot and let me tell you, walking this week was pretty painful and the bruise is only looking worse. To spare you looking at it, I pretty much have half a purple knee right now.  Not pleasant!

Moving onto happier things: That same night, I went back to the arts and crafts show with my coworker and bought a little something as a gift to my boyfriend and me.  I’ve been doing this a lot where its planning for the future.  I love this!

There was another one with a mirror and ones with candles.  All very awesome but I only have limited funds and for $45+tax, this was an alright deal and its useful 🙂

Suffice to say though, I was pretty happy when the weekend came around because it was more of a relaxing time.  I finally had the chance to spend some time at home on Saturday morning. I took the liberty of snapping some pictures of two of my favorite things in the world!

That night, I started the first night of the holidays although its not really to celebrate the actual holiday but for a going away party with a good friend.  He’s going off to follow his dreams and he reminds me every day that if we persevere and keep at our dreams, we’ll get there.  Giving it our best shot is what matters 🙂 I wish him the best in his future career and lots of success! The party was partially at dinner at a restaurant called Elixor located in the Laval area.

Yeah yeah, my cheat day everybody consists of ribs. I was literally scared to look at my calorie count but at least I enjoyed it! Thats what matters 🙂 Great times with friends!

Yesterday evening also marked the first actual snowstorm which is still going, although slowing down now. We pretty much had no snow on the ground yesterday, maybe 1cm, on the grassy area (if even that much).  I geared up in my snow pants! Thank you mom for the foresight 🙂

Oh yeah! Nice fluffy snow 🙂 May have taken an hour to shovel the whole driveway but I expect a second round when the plow goes by eventually but hey, its still quite pretty, don’t you think?

I know some of you got hit with this storm also.  Did it stop yet?

That pretty much wraps up my weekend.  I still have to get a few things done today so I’ll be running off but I have next week’s posts pretty much planned out, just have to write it all up 🙂

I always end with some vids so this was the 2013 Youtube Rewind video that I liked quite a bit since I recognized a few of the Youtubers and it was pretty cool!

They didn’t have embed enabled.  Moving on! How about some Ellen Show fun?

I’m just glad I don’t have to do anymore shopping as its pretty much done! Woohoo! Are you all set for Christmas?

How about a little Christmas joy in Disney style?

Okay, I know, just one more little share that I loved from Pinterest! Feel free to follow me there if you’d like 🙂

Hope you’re all having an awesome Sunday! 🙂
