Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir win gold in ice skating for a second time!

I am hooked on watching the winter Olympics. I just watched Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir skate to win gold. I am so proud of them! They are the most decorated skaters in Olympic history.

Wow! That's all I can say.

Family Day

It's Family Day in my province today. It's a day to spend with family and friends.

I'll be taking today off to reflect on how fortunate I am to still have my parents. I have supportive friends. I also have a loving boyfriend, my guy.

We both marvel at our relationship and how it continues to grow year after year. We have bumps here and there, but we are stronger than ever.

Enjoy your day!

Being a good girl for sending an e-card on Valentine's Day

As noted a few posts ago, I had sent my guy an e-card on Valentine's Day. He got it and reciprocated.

The fun part about sending this e-card was that Sweetie was my recipient's name. My name was Good girl.

When my guy sent an e-card back, he ended up using the default names. So, I am indeed Good girl.

It's nice that he agrees in the e-card world. He still feels that I am bad, which is why he needs to spank me.

Unwinding with beer, nachos, and manicures

Work has been hectic this week. It became especially stressful for my team on Thursday. Our manager was the cause.

I felt so drained on Friday that my team went out after work for nachos and beer. It was a good time had by all. Our manager had taken the day off, so that helped even more.

One of my colleagues is essentially my mini-me as far as work ethic goes. It's great.

A month ago, she asked me about my nails and how I apply polish on them. I described what I do. She had always thought that I went to a nail salon every week. When I broke the news that I do my own nails, she was impressed.

For the last three weeks, she has followed my lead by doing her own nails. I was so proud of her on Friday. Not only has she continue the same trend of giving herself a manicure, she had painted her nails purple, which happens to be my favourite colour. Her nails looked beautiful.

It's great when a stressful week ends on a positive, uplifting note.

Happy Lunar New Year!

It's the year of the dog, which happens to be the sign that my mom shares.

I don't normally take this day off from work. When I was in elementary school, my mom insisted on pulling me out of school to take in all the festivities. After that, I ended up going to school when this special day landed on a school day.

I am thankful that I made it through another year. Here's hoping for a healthy, happy new year to come!

Valentine's Day and trip news

When my guy and I first started dating, he sent me an e-card to wish me a happy Valentine's Day. It is rare that we are together on this day, as my guy is on the road more often than I am.

We have been together on Valentine's Day once since we have been seeing each other. It wasn't the case this year.

It doesn't matter to us. The whole idea is that if you are in love, every day is time to celebrate.

This year, I sent him an e-card and reminisced about us. He sent me a sweet text, with lots of hugs and kisses.

Next month, I am on vacation for a week. My guy advised that he will be travelling on business. I am hoping that we aren't away at the same time. It would be nice to join him. We'll see how things go and where he is travelling.

He's happy. We have had a travel restriction for a while, so it's nice that it has been lifted for him.

Pancake Tuesday

It has been years since I have had pancakes on Pancake (Shrove) Tuesday. I went out for lunch with three of my colleagues to get pancakes.

I wish I could pinpoint when I was first introduced to this day. I was definitely in elementary school. I had pancakes at school and have since loved all things yummy that need maple syrup on top. I love pancakes, waffles, and French toast to this day.

It was nice taking the time to have a leisurely lunch with colleagues. Tuesday was the first one this year where I did not work from home due to an early morning meeting. It felt good being in the office.

My guy got me a waffle maker a while back. I use it often, which is a nice reminder of how sweet and thoughtful he is.
