Day 39 – January 17, 2011

Today was one busy day for a day off!

I went to WW first thing in the morning, then I went grocery shopping at a different H-E-B that I hadn’t been to yet.

I thought about buying some butternut squash, but I decided against it since I haven't tried cooking the acorn squash yet

I saw some tortillas being made! Hadn’t seen that at a HEB before!

Made me crave warm tortillas.. *drool*

I didn’t buy any of those nice warm tortillas.. instead I bought some low-carb whole wheat ones.

I knew I had my 1:1 on Tuesday morning, so I figured I should download the videos before my boss asked…

Anticipating Tuesday's 1:1

After days of rain and cloudy weather, the sun came out! I was so stoked.. it was so warm. I let Dusty go out on the balcony and enjoy the sunshine.

Clear skies

I made dinner and lunch for tomorrow, watched more Psych, then I went to bed…

Day 36 – January 14, 2011

Today, I tried to sleep in, but I didn’t sleep past 9am. I wasn’t sure what time I was going to meet up with MB & ML to go shopping. I ordered room service again, but this time, I only got the smoked salmon bagel. I checked out of my room and went home to drop off all my stuff. Around 1pm, I got back to the hotel to pick up the girls and we went to the San Marcos outlet. We shopped, took a break for lunch, and shopped some more. We got back to the hotel around 8pm. I only got one thing — a Coach bag — hell has officially frozen over! I never thought I’d get one. The price wasn’t bad…

The back of the bag

I turned over the bag and of course someone was curious

Bag - front... Nosey kitty!

Home sweet home.. glad to be back 😀

Day 20 – December 29, 2010

Just in case you were wondering, there are still lines outside of Lululemon in the Greater Toronto Area.

3 days after Boxing day and the lines are still there.. (Lululemon @ Square One)

Today, after going shopping for some cute rings with my parents (and not getting anything), we decided to get lunch at the Mississauga Chinese Centre.

Mississauga Chinese Centre - fountain - yes it is always grey

We had Chinese (Hong Kong style) – fried rice and sweet & sour pork and sushi! I keep forgetting to take photos of the food.. nonetheless, it was delicious!! We had sushi leftover.

This is the last day… and I have packing and work to do. Yay!!

Day 19 – December 28, 2010

Today, I worked for a while and then my parents, sister, and I went for lunch to celebrate my mom’s birthday which is the first week in January. We usually have a dinner just before I leave but my sister is working nights starting tonight so we opted for lunch today. The place we ended up at was Moxie’s! We always take photos but I guess I didn’t take photos of my parents with my camera even though I thought I did; I must’ve taken them with my mom’s camera.

Sisters in Black Part Deux (this time with white and grey!)

My dad's Caesar, my Mango Margarita, D's Raspberry something Margarita and I forgot what kind of margarita my mom had

I forgot to take photos of the food… it was all really good! After lunch, D went on her way and we stopped at Future Shop (similar to Best Buy) to get my dad an external hard drive so he can copy his stuff onto that and delete it from my mom’s iMac.

Future Shop.. yes, it's a Canadian company.. well it was, then it was bought by Best Buy

It was snowing a tiny bit when we left Moxie’s but I couldn’t really take a photo because the flurries were so fine, so after we came out of Future Shop, I took a photo.

Only way you could really see the snow flakes

Buh-bye Moxie's! {Yes the weather has been crappy!}

After we got home, I took a nap with Buster, and then I helped my mom with the iPhone.. I loaded music on it, installed a few apps, and taught her how to use it.  It is now working well with the Canadian SIM card and she was very happy 😀

I’m gonna go give the neighbour’s cat some food so he will leave. He’s been hanging around on the window sill for almost an hour and I figured it’d go away if I didn’t feed it, but it didn’t.

Day 17 – December 26, 2010

This morning, I woke up to my sister tapping me on the  forehead. Last night, she said if we were to go Boxing day shopping, we’d have to get up early. When I opened my eyes, she asked me if I wanted to go shopping and after I thought about it, I decided to go for it. My dad, mom, sister, and I got dressed and went down to Sherway Mall to check out the sales around 9:30; the mall had opened at 8am.

We saw this mannequin at The Bay [a department store]

Me: "I think she forgot to wear a bra" D: "No, I think she did it on purpose *whispers*I hear she's a slut"

One of the first stores we went into was Lululemon.. but prior to going in, we had to line up.

We've lined up for Lululemon before and this was a pretty short, fast-moving line

While in line, they were doing trivia questions and they asked who the founder of Lululemon was.. and I only  knew his first name [Chip] so I said “Chip something” and since no on else knew it, I got a free headband 😀 Once inside, I saw they didn’t have many things that appealed to me. I bought a running skirt and my sister bought a top.

We shopped around some more but I didn’t find anything else. My dad was the only one who bought anything else on sale. After the mall, we dropped off the parents at home so D & I could pick up her Wii since she wanted us to pass Super Mario Bros Wii on her system and then we realized we needed a couple more colours for decorating cookies for A’s family’s dinner, so we went to Michaels. On the way home, we stopped at Tim Hortons so my sister could get some coffee and I saw they’re garbage cans — they include recycling for paper and other recyclables!

Canadians love to recycle!

Once we got home, we prepped a few cookies…

Yup.. they're meant to look like Tiffany's boxes.. what girl doesn't love to get those?!?

After I decorated the cookies, D had to go get ready to go over to A’s relatives for dinner. I decorated some more, then it was WII TIME!!!

*Whomp whomp* the Wii wants to retire 😦

I got this error yesterday too but it started working again .. today, it still didn’t want to read the discs so I played some Virtual Console games. I should have put it in my carry-on but there was no room.

While D was gone, Buster got really sad..

Yup.. he was moping around when D left...

We’re thinking it’s because she moved out and she hasn’t been home as much as she has this weekend since then. He previously had abandonment issues and I’m actually not joking: my cousin shipped him to me, I brought him here, and Cookie the cat left him (well she was put  down, but he didn’t know this) . He used to act up a lot when he was younger until he realized he was here to stay. A hasn’t been here and he’s upset with him too… So I went and grabbed him and hugged him and made him sit with us, and he was looking a little better

The “Sex and the City” movie was on and I started watching it, and my sister came in about a third of the way and she enjoyed it.

Tomorrow, D and I are going to Niagara Falls and the casino after work.. I’m hoping to win some money to get a new Wii.. wish me luck!!
