The Weekend.

So, Hmmm. Do you want minute by minute replay?

My bus left Friday morning 8:25 a.m.
We got there like half an hour early though, cause we're paranoid like that. Speaking of paranoid, my mother spent most of that half hour giving me great advice like 'Don't take candy from strangers'. Apparently I didn't learn this lesson well enough when I was 3.

The bus trip was very uneventful. It was weird, later everybody kept asking me how the bus ride was..I got annoyed because why would it be anything other than boring and why do you guys keep asking me dumb questions :).

Although..there was an accident on the highway and our driver told us we were going to have to take a detour which would make us an about an hour late but the highway opened again and so we were just delayed like 15 minutes.

Mmm, got there..met up with everybody. Drove to Peachland to my favoritest bakery/coffee shop ever and ate bread. Well, everybody else ate bread. I looked at a wedding magazine. It had so much information. I'm sad that I didn't take it with me.

We went back to Kelowna then, and waited at the mall for a while. I don't really know what we were doing there. Haha, just sitting..And I ate a delicious cinnamon bun and everybody was getting mad at me cause that was the only thing I had eaten so far that day.

Went to Steves house..did some more sitting. Drove to Brandons..I fell asleep on the way. I was so tired. We ate burgers there..and played catch phrase. And just hung out for a while.

Then Jordan drove me and KP back to Cassandras house where we slept..or I tried to sleep :).

In the morning..I didn't want to get out of bed. It was so comfortable..so I waited until the last possible moment..and I sacrificed wearing makeup for that extra sleep. Totally worth it.

We walked up to Jordans house..and had tea and talked. It was probably my most favorite part of the weekend. Just so random.

Then off to Steves where we had a huge breakfast..I ate four waffles. They were gigantic. And lots of bacon and ham. And I felt to gross after.

We went to the H2O Center. Imagine our tournament capital center pool thing..but like 500 times bigger..haha.
I don't want to have to explain it all so go to the virtual tour if you really want to know.

Then we went for Mcdonalds for supper and as everybody was getting into vehicles after that I quickly announced that I was leaving and it had been great seeing everybody. HAH, I hate goodbyes and that made it semi not awkward since they were like all in vehicles already. Then Jon dropped me off at the bus stop..I did walk back to the mall to pick something up and then to the grocery store to buy food but then I was off..and back in Kamloops 4 hours later.

But yeah. That's pretty much it for my weekend. It was good. Made me never want to something like that ever again though.. :) but I probably will.

I wrote this last night but blogger was down.

I *hatehatehate* packing.
Although, I am not actually that bad at it.

It's just the nerves of forgetting something and mentally preparing myself for a stressful trip all mixed together makes me procrastinate until the last second possible and then take forever doing it because when it comes to packing I am a perfectionist.

My list(Yes, I have a list. Step #1 to being an excellent packer) is titled(Haha, yes my list is titled.)

"Hannah's Overnight Packing list.
*Who knew one person needed so much stuff?*"

Along with the normal 'Toothbrush', 'PJ's' and 'Hoodie' you will find strange items such as 'Whistles', 'Fresh Supply of Tylenol' and 'Coffee to Go'.

Surprisingly enough even though my usual writing is the messiest thing you have ever seen, I pull it together to make my lists very tidy.
With neat check marks beside all the items already packed and the things that I need to put in tomorrow are highlighted in pink for an easy find while I am half asleep tomorrow.
Speaking of that, at the bottom of the list there is one last thing,
'1 Well-Rested, Beautiful Girl'. It is highlighted in pink with some extra green highlighter to show that this one is really important.
So I really should be off to bed.

I leave tomorrow morning for Kelowna. I will only be gone until late Saturday night but I am taking the Greyhound so you will probably want to pray for me :).
Hopefully I have fun and return unharmed. But then again, I do need some exciting blog material for when I get back :).

Have a fun weekend without me.

It was just one of those days.

Well, actually the first half of my day was awesome.

I went to the library for the first time in a month at least.
Got some books..checked out value village..it has been FOREVER since I was last in there.
I like the security dude. We talked. It was fun.

I went to my favorite place for lunch. Yumm. Yay, monopoly :).

Then we went for a visit at my gramas house. Also very fun and entertaining.

Then I drove up the hill to drop Noah off at climbing and me and Josh went for an adventure.
It was fun.

And that's all I really want to talk about. After that it just went downhill and I was having a terrible night until....

Somebody brought me flowers. :). And then I couldn't stop smiling.
The rest of my shift was alot better. And after I got home I read a note from a friend and it made me feel even better. And now not having to work for a week makes me feel great. And knowing KP is going to Kelowna and is not skipping out of me makes me feel fantastic.

I feel good. And I am going erase all the bad stuff from my memory and move on with life.

p.s. I listened to Smother Me- The Used for the first time after work today. I love it.

Things I love Monday.

1. Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Pancakes smothered in Peanut Butter and Syrup.

2.Home Made Pumpkin Muffins.
3.Baking for the first time in a long time.

6.A new Toque.

7. New episodes from my favorite shows.
8. Not having to work. Just doing random stuff at home.
9. Dancing around the kitchen to Taylor Swift. (You guys do not know how weird I am. Sean could tell you so many stories)
10. Drooling over yummy recipes on Kraft Canada

Things I don't love:
1. Remembering I had a take home quiz that I forgot to do on my two weeks off and then having to do it on the car drive over and feeling so rushed and panicked only to arrive and find out almost nobody had done it and it wasn't required.
2. Driving classes.
3. Worrying about the 'N' test.

A list.

1. French Press.
2.The cool green travel mug from Starbucks.(Ask Josh, Kandace or Alex)
3.Popsicles. (But a specific kind.)
4.Black Picture Frames(any kind) WITH pictures of you and me/you/my friends already in it.
6.Either of the Taylor Swift Albums.
7. A Blackmoor Goldfish.
8. A stuffed cow from Ruckers.
9. A Hockey Stick. Like a good one. I don't expect any of you to buy this for me but if you would like to hint to one of my elder brothers I would be fine with that. Just make sure they remember that unlike them I need a right handed stick.

That's all for now.
If I think of something else I will just update this post.

Yes, I am very aware that this is my 4th post of the day, I just wanted to catch up on everything..and get to the 400th post mark!

With that being said, I will try to catch you up on my life.



Haha, yeah that is the extent of my life right now it would seem.
Except the weird thing is I'm not working full time or anything so it should be such a big part, but it feels like it.

But since stories of work would probably just bore you I will keep that out of my blog.

So Tuesday I went for a driving lesson..and I did parallel parking for the first time. It was..scary. Well, maybe not really scary I just felt very unprepared and he didn't really explain what I was supposed to do. The first one failed. But the other two were actually really good and he said I did a great job especially since it was my first time.

Last night some of us went to the double feature Toy Story 1&2 in 3-D at the theatre. It was amazing. And I'm sorry for doubting myself. Everybody else thought it was going to be a bad idea..but NO It was AMAZING and I'm so happy I went. I had not seen those movies in so long and I totally forgotten most of it. And it was in 3-D so it makes it that much better cause you get to wear those hot glasses that makes everybody look attractive :).

OOOOO, on Saturday after work I went to the mall, It was the first time I had been there in a while. I got some stuff. And then I met up with Jess randomly and we went shopping togethere for a while. She 'convinced' me to buy some stuff that I would never usually consider but they are turning out to be not that bad. Pants, people.

Sunday was..going to Red Robins for the first(and maybe last :P) time..and the life chain.

Oooo yesterday I spent some time with two of my favorite people. It was fun, I always like hanging out with them. We just chilled..went to Starbucks, watched a movie.
I like doing stuff like that. Not too big..just nothing planned but it's fun cause it's with people I like.

Okay, enough blogging for one day.


"But the hat looked good?     Tell me the hat looked good."

*Warning* Some Nasty Pictures..

So, I don't remember if I blogged about this story but while at camp this summer I broke my toe. And also scraped it and it looked gross and it was bleeding..and eww. Haha, well, after that half the the nail turned black and I knew it was going to fall off, but the other half was still stuck on so it couldn't.

About three weeks ago I was so sick of looking at it all the time I decided it was time.
I clipped away the part of the nail that had come away from the skin. But then there was the whole front part that was still attached. So, I took a deep breath and ripped it off.

Now it looks..semi okay, I guess. But it has been three weeks and there is still no sign of the new nail coming in. And now I worry that it never will.

I'll keep you updated.

Just for a little change..



It was kind of funny because a couple minutes before I started the whole procedure I looked at my hair and I realized how much I loved it being brown. But I dyed it anyway! Haha. The good news is it's not permanent. Not sure how long it will last. Like a month..if that.

I've noticed it makes my eyes look really blue though.

If a photoshoot with roses is the closest to you I can get..

I'll take it.

You are amazing.
I love you.
You know just how to make me feel better, all the time.

Flavours of the Month.(Evestay)

Mmmmm, this first one is delicious.
But unfortunately they only have this kind in North Van. :(. Maybe one day I will be rich enough to travel there and see this one in person.

This Months actual feature is pumpkin spice.
We have a pumpkin spice Tea, Donut and my favorite, the muffin.
This thing is so good. If you have been around for a while you will remember that I blogged about this baby last year around this time.

So, what can I say..it tastes yummy, it has the amazing spice factor and then on top of that it has some pumpkin seeds mixed in and cream cheese frosting piped into it. (If you want it to be more amazing that it already is you have to get Hannah to make it for you and she will put triple the amount of frosting in :).

Last but not least: Large Iced Mocha Latte.
So good. This consists of..Well, I don't know for sure..haha but it has
Expresso, Chocolate syrup base, Ice, Milk and then whipped topping and drizzle on top.
Technically if you order it normal it will be made with Chocolate milk but I found that that was really heavy so now I make it with white milk and it is just perfect. Oh, and since I have a terrible time with caffeine after 12 pm I make it decaff. Lame I know but it tastes the same.
