Oh hi there friends! Long time no see, yet again. The past two weeks have been such a complete whirlwind of packing and moving and birthday parties, but I finally found some time to sit down and write a little update. This past week was particularly a doozy and I've been extremely accident prone! First I got hit by a car... I was walking and had the right of way and a guy didn't see me and I ended up bouncing off of his hood. Just a bruised hip from that thank goodness! Then I fell down stairs at work and got a huge bruise on my butt, and finally I had an incident with a door and cut a huge chunk of my ankle off. Ha. What a week. Yesterday I took a much needed nap and decided I should just stay indoors to make sure I don't get hurt.
I don't have a lot of closet space in my new home, so i've decided to sell off all my sweatshirts over at Thought Shapes for $20! The discount can only be applied to sweatshirts and if you live in Winnipeg I can deliver or you can pick up. Use the code "LILACWEEK" for $15 off sweatshirts, and if you want a tee, use the code "TEETIME" for $5 off!
Side note, I've been stealing my neighbours' lilacs like crazy. My new home has never smelled better!
Not only have I been moving, I've also been working for my mom who is an interior painter. I somehow managed to get a lot of bruises and paint on me this week.
It's always more fun when you get to paint colors you like! This was a porch floor we got to paint in the tea house in Rosenort a few weeks back.
This was my last night spent in the Bate building, my home for the past year. I'm not moving again for a long time.
Why would I, when this is my new bedroom!?
Slowly finding homes for things. My sunroom is hands down my favourite room in my apartment.
Look at my amazing view!
This past week my grandma celebrated her 80th birthday! My mom, aunt and some of my cousins spent the day before the party prepping and making "fancy sandwiches" which was one of my grandma's requests for her tea party with 100 of her nearest and dearest friends. I learned that my grandma used to work at the Nutty Club here in Winnipeg when she was in her early twenties, and her and her friend would sneak 2 or 3 prizes in every crack jack box!
It was also Gareth's birthday this past weekend, and I had a bunch of his close friends over for dinner and drinks. I made deep-fried pickles for the first time, and they turned out so great!
Nothing like a midnight bike ride with a cute boy to poach the neighbours' lilacs.
I made the best grilled cheese ever yesterday with pulled pork and cheese on the inside and out obviously.
Alrighty, that's all I got for now. It's back to unpacking for this face, and then i'm going to meet my friends' new baby!
