I've been hit...

With a nasty bug.

I started feeling funny on Sunday after dinner but just thought something wasn't agreeing with me.

Then on Sunday night I woke up just before 3 a.m. and I thought for sure I had been transported to a very hot beach in Hawaii. My body was on fire. The only problem with that was my skin, Denis and our room were all freezing - it was only 17 degrees!!!

So yeah. I couldn't fall back to sleep but I was too out of it to get up either so I just stayed there for hours listening to D breathe. Needless to say I didn't go into work. I spent most of the day between bed and the couch. Last night D made me a cozy fire and I stretched out on the futon matress in front of the fire sipping tea and watching tv.

I'm home again today. Still feeling horrible. I had to scramble with my client advisor to try and regnegotiate a few deadlines. This is really bad timing because I'm headed to Toronto on Friday morning and off Monday as well. I MUST be better by then I have a big weekend planned.

This is what is on the agenda:

I plan to get an early start on Friday morning with a pit stop at Michaels to pick up one of these:

It's an excellent price PLUS there is a coupon for another 20% off and my other trimmer is making me CRAZY.

Next stop will likely be Yorkdale Mall. They have one of my very favourite stores there...Bath and Body Works. I love their product and I especially love their holiday collection. Now it remains to be seen if the prices are as good in Canada as they are in the states...

After some retail therapy Cawi and I will meet up with eachother and Chris for martini hour...

There is some place near Chris' house that has a martini happy hour...martini happy hour equals T R O U B L E.

After happy hour I believe the plan is to head back to Chris' place for our own Rockstar party. I managed to find what I was looking for this weekend for our little Rockstar accessory.
Saturday morning I'm quite sure we will be draggin our butts but we will need to get ourselves into the "big city" for our theatre day.

We will start with an afternoon matinee of Dirty Dancing:

Who knows...we may just have the time of our lives...

Next it'll be off to a quick supper (destination to be determined) and then on to our next show...

I HEART the Sound of Music. I've seen the movie more times than I can count and I even travelled to Austria and did the Sound of Music tour with Ally. The two of us had tears streaming down our faces on the bus as we drove through the Austrian countryside. I can't wait to see the stage production. I watched the show to choose Maria religiously on CBC a few months ago.

I believe post-show martinis are also on the menu followed by a night at the Intercontinental Toronto Centre. I'm thinking after our busy day and night this is going to feel pretty darn good..

A hearty Sunday morning brunch is on the menu and boy are we going to need it to tackle the One of a Kind Show in Toronoto. I have heard many good things about it for many years but I have never actually attended. I'm quite excited to be hitting it with Chris and Cawi.

Sunday evening we will head back to Newmarket and try to recover before I have to drive back to Ottawa on Monday. Can everyone please pray to the sick gods that I'm feeling better in time please!! I cannot put into words how much I am looking forward to this weekend. We always joke that I'm their "other sister" and the truth is I really feel like there other sister. Which feels so nice. And I have to say when we were together in July our weekend was truly a 10/10.

I just realized I didn't post anything about this past weekend. It was great but very busy as usual...
Friday we had a date night and saw two movies. The new James Bond (it was pretty good for Friday night entertainment) and Eagle Eye.

I absolutely LOVED Eagle Eye.

It was nice because both movies (although a bit more manly) were movies we could BOTH enjoy...

Saturday was mostly spent around the house just getting stuff done and mostly organizing my new Clip it up. Why oh why did I wait so long for one of these???

I could realistically use at least two of them but for now I just doubled up. I love how accessible everything is and how easy it all is to see...

I'm hoping it will save me lots of time (and money) in the long run.

Shoppers Drug Mart was having some sort of cash in your points deal on cosmetics so we made a quick stop to pick up a few new things...

I finally broke down and got this:

I have been eyeing it for a bit but refused to pick it up because of the outrageous price. After reading what's in it I now understand the price...one of the first items listed is GOLD. That's right. There is GOLD in my makeup. Ha. I had to laugh at that one.

I also picked up something similar yet different to this...

And a little of this...

And finally one of these...(in "Snow")

So basically I have no excuse to not have a pretty "made up" face anymore!

We then made our way to Tanya and Keith's place for supper and a visit. We had such a fun relaxing time getting all caught up and playing with Kyle. He is seriously one of the absolute best babies I've ever been around and I've been around my share of babies! He's so smiley and adorable, I just love hanging with him.

Sunday D had to work and I was on a mission for a new winter jacket so I hit the stores. It was seriously the right day to shop because there were SO MANY great sales on.

And I just couldn't resist this scarf...

A cute cardigan with a little bling...

And this tunic...

I also picked up a few new bras and undies and a pair of pjs because I'm sleeping "in public" this weekend so I have to cover up! Oh and a few long sleeved t shirts and turtle neck sweaters from Old Navy. I'm telling you the sales were EVERWHERE!
I FINALLY managed to find a purse at Winners. My "dream team" gave me a gift cert for a new purse when I left the team but I haven't been able to find anything I like or the purses I love ended up being $300 and up! AT WINNERS! I saw a few that were at the $500 mark!

I can't find a picture of it online but basically it's black and it's a HUGE tote. I love it. I also treated myself to a sampler of Christmas body washes. So yum. So fun!
Last but not least I hit the grocery store and made my way home. D and I made a fire and brought down the futon matress to play some Wii and then watch the Grey Cup! It was a very good game that would have been MUCH better if the Bombers were playing...maybe next year!
So there you have it...two weekends in a nutshell.
I think I'm going to try and have a bit of a nap before D gets home. I MUST get into the office tomorrow or my coworkers may disown me...
ciao lovelies
