My life has been quite blah since the 11th, filled with studying, tutoring and tidying up.

so let's start there....

december 11th
Flew to Vancouver. 
I don't know why but I am always terribly worried about missing a flight and I end up at the airport with at least an hour to kill. Is the Kelowna airport EVER busy? No.
So, I did the only sensible thing to do. 
Drank a beer.
I also had the pleasure of spending the evening with my sister Holly, her boy Dan, my bro Matt and his significant Dani, and my parents. 

Can I just take a moment to point out the fact that all of the kids (minus fras) are dating a Dan of sorts?
Holly: Dan
Matt: Dani
Me: Daniel

december 12th
I could have laid on the couch all day if given the opportunity. Thankfully there was a dog to walk, and thus a hike to go on.
One of the most wonderful things about living on Bowen is that our back yard is a playground of wilderness. 
hikes on hikes on hikes.
Also, have you seen American Horror Story?
Its creepy and bizarre and kind of rapey but intriguing at the same time.

december 13th
Let's just say I was happy it wasn't Friday,
I spent the evening on the island alone with the pups and two cats. Aka cuddle heaven.
I had a candlelit bubble bath, drank some peppermint tea, and enjoyed the silence.
Oh, I also ate an entire pizza to myself, and enjoyed every last bite.
That is, until the minor touch of food poisoning from earlier in the day wreaked havoc on my insides.

rufus & annie are my homies

this plate knows how I feel about pizza

december 14th
two words: homemade gifts

he's just like oliver
december 15th
The annual nogfest on Gibson's landing.
I dont know what I was thinking, but didn't bring any sensible appetizers that I could eat and filled myself with crackers and hummus for 8 hours.
My parents got wasted and acted like teenagers again while I was appointed DD.
My step dad Peter, his brother and sister, and my mother sure know how to have a good time.
Two grown men with their sister sandwiched in the backseat drinking out of a flask and smoking a one-hitter.
Peter also smuggled the dog on board and wrapped her up in a blanket and pretended she was an ugly baby.

On a side note, I miss mouse so much.

Stay classy kelowna!

have a merry merry merry

december 4th
justified ending my night of studying a little early for some donkey kong deux. 
I dont remember it being so hard?
watched new girl, smash, I totally agree, I feel like all the episodes have just been filled with yelling? I want to see Nick in a sweater, smoking a cigar, and yelling on the phone about money again.
those were the good old days

december 5th
I baked bread!
whole wheat with flax seedz and rosemary. 

december 6th
have you ever studied so hard for an exam, like 12 hours in one spot study, like, pretty sure you might as well just already have a phd in the subject?
and then bomb it?
well that happened to me.
that feeling of such disappointment mixed with shame and anger just makes a girl wanna cry
and then emotionally eat
so thats what I did.
okay, I didn't cry, but I definitely went to mad mango.

at least I've got these two to cheer me up.
olivia and her oliver-cat-hat.

stay classy kelowna,

december advent blog

my dearest lady smasha invited me to participate in a december blog advent! doesn't that sound nice? I missed the boat so here is my recap so far!

december 1st  
spent the majority of my day studying vaginas, babies, and the general birthing process, cool eh?
topped off my day of no-nos with skinny girl's white peach margarita
wished it snowed.

december 2nd
the effects of the white peach margarita lingered all day. daniel and i spent the entire day on the couch. with one exception. mad mango. 
okay, maybe two exceptions.
we started and beat all of donkey kong and then watched lawless and I fantasized about having a romance with forrest.

take me now!

december 3rd
exam jam begins! solid 9 hours at the library, including 3 hours of tutoring first years...wheeeeff
