A Winter Weekend


This is winter in Montreal. My backyard, to be exact. I think the snow goes up to my knees, and seeing as how I’m 5’9 1/2″, that’s a lot. Plus, it’s about -15 degrees celsius, so every time I leave the house, in addition to pulling on my chunky Pajar boots, I must prepare myself for a whiff of cold air that just doesn’t go away with extra layers of mittens, a huge scarf and a thick sweater under my heavy winter coat. And that’s when it’s -15 degrees, imagine -35 degrees celsius!

To put it plainly, winter in Montreal sucks. It’s lovely for the first week or so, when it’s only two or three degrees below zero and there is a light snow falling. But once New Years hits, we’re all done with it. Especially if you don’t ski, then it’s just long and painful. But hey, that’s why we blog, right?

Hopefully everyone is having a great weekend, and hoping that it isn’t too cold everywhere else in the world! Enjoy the rest of your weekends!

Excitement Overload!!


They’re finally here! My Daughter concert tickets arrived in the mail yesterday! I think I almost cried I was so excited! Now I only have to wait one month and 25 days! Just thought I’d express my excitement with you all! This will probably be one of the greatest nights of my life!


February Playlist

FEBRUARY 2014 playlist

This month’s playlist is all about love, friendship and music (obviously)! I hope you all enjoy the collection of songs, new and old, that make up month two of 2014!!

In other news, I’m super excited, because this afternoon, at 12:01, I got my Daughter concert tickets!! She’s coming to Montreal on April 7th and I’m dying to see her live again! I will be in the presence of my inspiration, my idol, and one of the best artists I’ve ever heard in exactly 2 months!! My best friend T and I will (hopefully) be standing front row, right there in front of her!

Anyways, I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
