** Awesome friend alert! My favourite frequent border crosser, Ibby, brought me back a surprise from Trader Joe’s. Cooooookie Butter! It’s as delicious as everyone says.
I provided him with a pan of Maple Bacon Sticky Buns as thanks.
Which reminds me…I posted those AMAZING bacon buns yesterday and I only got ONE comment. Shocked! I thought you guys would be drooling all over those.
** This morning I made the sad mistake of ordering a Starbucks muffin. It was mediocre at best and barely the size of my palm. Then when I looked it up it turned out to be a 400 calorie muffin. 400!! How is that even a reasonable item to sell? #@$%^&*!!!
** Tomorrow is #FoodiePenPals reveal day. Check back here to see my fun foodie goodie bag.
** There was big plans on my workout schedule to finally try BodyPump tonight but I was thwarted by a weird, out of nowhere headache. First I had a wave of light headedness, then kind of a wibbly eye thing that wouldn’t go away…so I relegated myself to the couch for a few hours and now seem to be fine.
** Gorgeous big pink grapefruits were on sale this week. I bought a bag and spent three days trying to think of something creative to do with them. Today I had a brilliant brainstorm. Eat them! :)
** I have missed a couple of weeks of #CanadianBloggerSeries shout outs. Oooops! Take a click on over to Heidi’s blog to check out posts by:
- Karen from Toronto Girl West (British Columbia)
- Cynthia from Cynthia’s Adventures (New Brunswick & Toronto)
- Leigh from All You Need is Love (Alberta)
It’s so fun reading everyone’s different views of their place in Canada!
** Oh, I suppose I should mention The Hunger Games. I was lucky enough to get a pair of passes to the advanced premiere of the movie so the other Jamie and I checked it out. It’s definitely worth the hype. Very well done. I think I was at a bit of a disadvantage having just finished the book three days prior so I was picking apart the details and timeline a bit, but overall they did a good job converting the book to the screen.
I’m wondering if anyone who has not read the book has seen the movie yet? And if you have, were you able to follow the story just fine? I felt like you needed to know a fair bit from the book for the movie to make complete sense. Or was that just because the book was so fresh in my mind?
I’m now [not so] patiently waiting on my friend’s boyfriend to finish reading book two so I can have it.
** I finally gave in a got Draw Something Free for my iPhone tonight. I’ve played like 15 hands and I’m terrible. But I’ve had to draw fire twice so I guess that’s my current forte. You can find me on there as bi0nicw0man if you want to test my mad finger drawing skillz. I’d like to earn some new colours!
I just spent like 18 minutes trying to figure out how people screen capture things on their iPhones to post to their blogs and such and couldn’t do it.
