so what wednesday [25]

This week, I'm saying SO WHAT if ...

➡ We have been snowed in for two days and the snow FINALLY stopped. I'm not joking either when I say two days. 

➡ I have found the last three weeks of the Strong To The Finish Challenge very exhausting.

➡ I have totally been slacking on this blog, but I am going to make a decent effort to make it a routine.

➡ I may have a slight addiction to the show Spartacus. Anyone else watch it?

➡ Next week is officially Spring - I'm so excited!! Just have to get rid of all this snow first. 

➡ I am SO beyond excited for Florida. 11 days with just me and the boy in nice warm weather. 

What are you saying SO WHAT to this Wednesday?

Look whose back.

Well, well, well ... I am hoping I still have a few readers out there because it has been WAY over due for a post. I don't know where the time went and why I have never made the time to sit down and at least write one or two posts during the week. I think with starting my new job and getting all settled in, time just escaped me. I sincerely apologize, but I think I need to take time out of my days to sit down and check in. It's only healthy, right?

I don't even remember where I left off, in my sort of "life events", so I think I am just going to pick up right from where I am currently. I have been in my new position since November and I absolutely LOVE it. The hours are great and my team is amazing, AND, since I am finished at 3pm every day, I can get a decent workout in and be in bed at a normal hour. I am also participating in MuscleTech's Popeyes Stronger To The Finish contest and let me tell you, it's been a very interesting and challenging three weeks. The contest runs February 23-May 28 and for the last 11 days, I will be in Florida so that should be interesting.

Anyways, enough of these boring "diary like" posts, I am going to be starting up with my daily posts which I honestly have been missing. Keep a look out ....

And if you know of anyone looking for a blog to read/follow, send them on over!

NAIL COLOR: Rare Ruby by Maybelline

DRINK: Nothing right now but I just finished a diet Dr. Pepper with dinner

FOOD: Just finished dinner which was pasta and meatballs

SMELLING: A candle my brother is burning and it smells like a Christmas tree

HOPING: For a great first full week of work. We had two days of training last week and the team is really great. There is only 6 of us, if you count the Manager, so it will be nice to work with a small team

WEARING: Pajama pants and a tee shirt.

LOVING: That I had an AMAZING birthday week and weekend

WISH LIST: For my motivation to come back 100%

so what wednesday [24]

Since it's my birthday week, I have had a lot of family celebrations to attend which is why this post is going up on a Thursday! 

This week, I'm saying SO WHAT if ...

➡ I have taken time off of my "gym and eating" routine this week because it's my birthday week and I'm allowed

➡ I may or may not be addicted to Starbucks Sweet Cream Cold Brew coffee. If you're a cold brew fan, this is a definite MUST!

➡ Sephora got me AGAIN! I swear, I cannot walk past the store or go into the store without purchasing anything. It doesn't help that my "love list" is a few miles long either. However, this time I was well behaved. I only purchased the setting powder from Kat Von D. I absolutely LOVE her make up line! AND, I had to pick up my birthday present from Sephora, so it was kind of a "reason" to go ... right?

➡ I think it might be a little TOO early to start playing non stop Christmas music on the radio

➡ I discovered a brand new outlet mall in Toronto that has AMAZING stores. I haven't been in yet, we just saw it while driving home from another mall yesterday. Whenever I check it out, I'll definitely be putting up a post about it. 

What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?

sunday currently - nov 13 v.55

 C U R R E N T L Y ...

READING: I have added my Bloglovin' app back to my daily "social media" apps that I check. I figured it would be a great way to keep up with some of my favourite blogs and to add to my reading list. I think I might go to the Library at some point this week.

WRITING: This edition of The Sunday Currently and I have started my Christmas list.

MUSIC: Song(s) of the moment - The Weekend by Brantley Gilbert.

LISTENING: To a movie coming from the television in the other room. 

GUILTY PLEASURE: This week was definitely Pillsbury Christmas Cookies! They're so addictive and you know you can't just have one. 

THINKING: That my birthday week celebrations can officially begin!! I'm not sure how I feel about turning 28, but I do love the celebrations that I have during the week and weekend.

NAIL COLOR: Jade Jump by Sally Hansen 

DRINK: I am having a tea right now since my throat has been acting up, BUT, I bought a sugar cookie flavoured tea yesterday from the Bulk Barn and on my lanta!! I should have bought the entire stock!

FOOD: Pillsbury Christmas Cookie.

SMELLING: Nothing.

HOPING: For a great birthday week/weekend and for a great start to my new job on Thursday. I am getting excited about everything and for finally getting my routine back.

TV SHOW: I am finally on the current season of Grey's and season 2 of House of Cards. Its about time HOC had some drama. It's been a slow start but they know how to bring it when they want to.

WEARING: Pajama pants and a tee shirt.

LOVING: It's my birthday week/weekend!!

WISH LIST: For a wonderful week of celebrations with family and friends.

NEEDING: To finally get rid of some clothes, once and for all. 

BLESSING: Everyone and everything in my life.

FEELING: A bit tired today. I haven't been sleeping the last few nights and last night was probably the worst of them. I tried to take a nap today, but for some reason, I kept thinking I had to go somewhere when I don't. It doesn't help that this time of year is horrible. It's SO dark so early, it completely throws me off. Anyone else feel that way?

CLICKING: Keyboard and "later" for the iOS 10 install on my phone.

EXCITEMENT: My birthday week! It's always fun being able to celebrate with friends and family and this year I am doing more than my typical "dinners" and I am throwing in some activities. Maybe it will take my mind off my age! Haha kidding!

If any of you have TSC post, leave the link in a comment. I would love to check out what you guys are writing about!

five on friday.

Head on over to A Liz Adventures for one of my favorite weekly link ups!

Here in Canada, it is Remembrance Day and in the US, it's Veteran's Day. So, now matter where you are,  THANK YOU, as we owe so much to those who have protected our freedom, in the past and currently. 

Turned on a radio station today and they're playing Christmas music. Am I the only one that thinks it might be a BIT too early for the music? Not that I don't enjoy Christmas music, it's just by the Christmas is actually here, I am over all the music.

I have FALLEN IN LOVE with this workout program. Usually I am one that just sticks with the gym, but the last few days I haven't really felt like bringing myself to the gym BUT that is no excuse. If you have access to Beachbody On Demand than you can do some of these workouts. This is one an MMA style with a lot of punching and kicking. Doesn't sound like a lot but OMG, I am drenched and SO sore after these workouts. I never thought I would enjoy a workout video so much. I think I might look into purchasing the entire program as a Christmas gift for myself. 

Red Cup Season is back and I am excited to see all the different designs they have this year. I think that idea is wonderful!

Received my contract for my new job the other day (not sure if I've already talked about this, sorry if I have). Definitely getting excited & ready for this!

Enjoy your weekend everyone! :)
