What's Up This Wednesday

Hey dudes!  The busy days are just a-flyin' it seems, but I thought I'd pop in for a quick post.  Here's what's up this Wednesday!

  • Weighed myself this morning (because I forgot to yesterday) and the scales say I'm down 2 lbs. from last week.  Phewf.  My week was far from perfect in regards to healthy eating, but I figured I deserved SOME kind of reward for at least cutting out the chips and dip and snacks and chocolate every night.  It felt good to see the number go down more than a few ounces!
  • In complete contrast to the above, I know that today is McHappy Day and I'm trying to figure out how I can wrangle someone into getting me a damn Big Mac today... I mean, it's for a good cause, I only want to support McHappy Day!!! ;)
  • Remember when I was in the early stages of Season 4 of Suits, and I wasn't enjoying it so much?  Well, I'm back in love again, with only a few episodes left to go.  Mmmm Harvey... Still debating on what to turn to next when it comes to Netflix.  I'm thinking I'll give The Office a shot.
  • Speaking of Suits... in the episode I watched last night, Mike joked about how the firm has changed it's name more times than Prince, and Rachel pretended to not know who Prince was.  And I was like, "awww, Prince." :(
  • I downloaded a ton of Prince songs on the weekend so that I can continue my Prince education.  I also got Beyonce's new album, 'cause I need to know what all the fuss is about, with this "Becky with the good hair" business.  And thanks to my friend Shannon, I also snagged all the Maren Morris songs I could find... LOVE her voice!  "My Church" is officially my new favourite song.  Well, that, and Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias' "Messin' Around".  That one's gonna be my summer jam, I can just tell.
  • I got my hair cut last night!  I do this to my hairdresser Lisa every couple of years... I grow my hair out (and it takes a painfully long time, my hair does NOT grow fast) - and every time I go for a trim, she tells me how good I would look with a bob, and I say, "No, I NEED to have a pony tail."  And then just when it's finally reached a length I'm happy with, I get the itch for a change and tell her to chop it all off.  Last night was one of those nights.
  • I've finally reached the point in the year when I'm no longer sad to see my hibernating days fade away, and instead I'm looking forward to the fun things the spring and summer will hold.  I'm looking forward to Girls Night in a few weeks, Relay for Life coming up at the end of the month, hoping to get together with family and friends for BBQ's and bonfires and all those fun summer occasions, and daydreaming about going to the Camp in late July.... I'm ready for tees and capris and flip-flops!
  • It's alarming to hear about Fort McMurray, AB, and how the wildfires there have gotten out of control there, causing them to evacuate.  This is a big ol' country we live in, but this feels too close to home, and I can't imagine the fear they must be feeling right now as those fires are decimating entire neighbourhoods.  The pictures and videos I've seen are terrifying. Thoughts and prayers are with them.

  • I know I said the days are flying by - and they are - but seriously, is it only Wednesday?!?  I'm ready for the weekend!!!
Happy Hump Day!!!
