a hurricane at my door (plus lots of loves)

Sunday, September 26, 2010

good morning!

well, hurricane igor hit newfoundland on tuesday and kind of made a mess of our province. trees down, heat and lights gone, roads washed out - it was madness. it left a lot of people stranded in certain areas of the province - not cool igor. not cool.
my apartment is fine aside from the fact that we still don't have complete power back (only some outlets work, we have no fridge, no stove, no overhead lights and no heat). so that kind of sucks, but it definitely could have been worse.

i also broke my camera last week so i didn't take many pictures at all unfortunately. but it's fixed now, so, yay!

since i don't have many pictures to show you, i figured i'd make a post of things i love that i've found lately. it's been a while since i've had a favs post.

first of all, thelittledeer blog.
ahh, so charming! every picture is sweet and nice and the words are charming and i'm in love with it!

a magical tumblr: everybodysfree

where i want to go, now please: treehouse point

etsy loves:

and i'll finish off with another blog i love, rockstar diaries:

i hope you're all well and hurricane free :)

love lovee <3

ps. go to jason with a beard and listen to the dan mangan song he has posted, robots. LOVE.

and we read to each other from our books

Monday, September 20, 2010

on friday, i skipped my last two classes.
it was too nice out and there was too many things i wanted to do.

so me and jason walked to the mall!

we saw a feather (actually we saw a million but i didn't think a million picutres of feathers would be very interesting).

jason got a burger and i stole his fries, of course.
then we split a blizzard. of course.

now for the fun part!
we went to chapters on a mission i came up with.
the mission was this:
we each had ten minutes to find a book for the other that looked/sounded interesting.
when the ten minutes was up we met in the center of the store and switched books.
then, we had another ten minutes to skim through the book and find parts that seemed interesting.
then we met again and read them to each other!

this was the book i picked for jason. he read a passage about smelly socks and another that i don't remember.

this is the book jason picked for me, which i actually loved when i was skimming through.
i read a paragraph about a man being picked up by an elephant and another about a man who used to be a really esteemed portrait artist but times were hard and he had to resort to painting portraits of people's pets (hello alliteration!) i think pet portraits are better than people portraits.

so that was friday. saturday was rainy and i bought some pretty fall things.
sunday i went for a hike and napped and went to a flea market and bought the most beautiful plate you have ever seen.
i'll put pictures of those up later.

now that i'm thinking about it, a million pictures of feathers would be very interesting.

love, loove <3

i'm definitely awesome

thank you for loving me even though i eat a lot of ice cream

i had fun with you today, being rebels and skipping class and walking around downtown taking pictures
i like it when you hold my hand tighter when you want to protect me from someone
i also like that you now have a blog! i am excited to see what you post, and also slightly afraid to see which pictures you put up :)

a sunday spent baking

Monday, September 13, 2010

on sunday jason wasn't feeling too happy so i baked him a batch of martha stewart chocolate chip cookies! they were chewy and chocolatey and sort of tasted like pancakes. he ate them all (except for one that i may or may not have grabbed hot out of the oven), so i take it they were good!

later last night i made coconut cookies for myself. unfortunately i can't be trusted around cookie dough and ate waaay too much while waiting for the first batch to bake, then ate another cookie when they were done! oops ;) i froze over half of them so no more cookie grabbing for me!

i have more to post from the weekend but for now i'll leave you with these pictures of the cookies i did up in a little package for my frowny boyfriend.

ps! don't forget to enter my little giveaway! you have until wednesday night :)
love looooove <3

hi dolls!

i'm finally settled in my new apartment in the city. i looooove it here, it's pretty freakin' adorable. i've started school and like all my classes except for one. it's in english grammar and sentence structure.. i fell asleep in my second class. oops ;) but i love all my other classes; i'm taking newfoundland folklore, german history, modern european history and shakespeare! looove.

my days here in the city have been spent walking around exploring downtown, getting caught in the rain, decorating and unpacking, making lottttss of yummy food, naps naps naps, shopping at thrift stores and the mall, trying to find my way around campus and loooving the city i now live in!

before i show you pictures of my room, i want to let you know that i'm going to do a little giveaway! if you want to recieve a little package full of things in the post from me, simply comment on this post and tell me your favorite thing about where you live! that's it! i've never done anything like this before but i really hope it works out okay. i'll choose a winner randomly on wednesday, september 15th sometime in the evening. good luck ;)

to my room! after a full day of unpacking, organising and decorating, this is the result and my little room for the next year at least!

bye for now! and good luck :)
love loooove
