What's Been Going On

It's been pretty crazy around here lately.  What with my new job as an office manager at a game publishing company and well....life, it has been a bit hectic.  But awesome! I am loving my job, its super chill and COMPLETELY opposite from the job I had before.  Thank god.


My desk space that I have made my own.


Spent a rainy Saturday at John's, where we did some shopping and then just hung out and drank wine. It was glorious.





I seriously love the crap out of this guy.


We took a picture of Dave buzzing in to John's condo. And laughed and laughed because we were drunk.


The next day I put up some blinds while I was super hung.  I was sweaty and shaky and had to re-screw things three times. But look! Blinds!


Ahhh, and then I turned back into a girl and got a manicure.


Dave and I have been shopping for a car and we had an appointment all the way in Orangeville to test drive a VW Golf. I had NO sleep the night before and this was the result of that. Cool face.



Why am I not a part of this band?


Down the street from work, it was a foggy day.



This weekend was Dave's company picnic on Toronto Island. We had to take the ferry over, and it was good times. Going to the Island was on our summer to-do list so we can cross that one off.


The skyline from the Island.



Outtake.



The boys! We were all pretty drunk at this point, because in typical Ubisoft fashion the alcohol was a-flowing.  Good times! 


Anyone else looking forward to Fall? Ugh. I am. We haven't had much of a summer but what we have had has kind of sucked. I am looking forward to cool days and nights.

Canoeing the Grand

Took this right after our tire blew out on the highway.  We just wanted to catch our shuttle bus to glorious canoeing and fun times, but no, had to miss it to wait for roadside assistance to come and change the tire. On our rental. Yeah.


Still waiting. I was damned if we were going to miss the next shuttle too.  The guy came and changed the tire to the spare, but advised that we shouldn't really be driving back to Toronto on it.  Ummm...ok. Did I mention this was a rental?


Anyway, we forgot all about that drama once we got into our canoe. I had packed a big lunch and beer and snacks, so we were all ready to go.


It was kind of cold and overcast on this day, but the rain held out for us. It came later, and it came a lot.







Oh Dave I just love you.







After canoeing we figured we would go to Wal-Mart, buy a new tire and have them put it on. They took one look at the rim and said no way. So the rental company (ahem, Zipcar), advised us to call a tow truck and get it towed back to Toronto. They said we could ride back with the tow truck driver. Like it would be fun! No thanks. We decided to take the bus, and it was raining and gloomy and depressing.  But whatever, we didn't die from losing a tire on the highway right?

To Jessi's We Will Go

Two weekends ago (?) I had the utmost pleasure of visiting my other family, Jess, Rob and their little one Jackson (who is not so little anymore!).  I hopped on a train and then a bus and then eventually Jess's car to make the 3 hour long trek to my love's home out in the middle of nowhere.


Jack and I had a lot of fun walking together.  Well, I walked, he enjoyed the ride.




Maybe a little too much.


Jess and I had a bit of a girly day with manis and pedis on the menu (thanks Rob! You are the best husband ever!).


And then we chipped/ ruined those lovely nails by taking a trip to the frigging arcade.  Damn right.


Cats in things.  


Then we went to the beach!! I forgot how much we actually did this weekend...it was pretty jam packed with fun!



Oh dear the cuteness.


Dave met Jess and I in Orangeville, so he could take me home. And this is where I discovered these French macarons! Oh god, I was in heaven.


Sorry for the quick post friends, but I am sitting at work right now. That's right, I found a job!  More on that business later. Talk to you soon!
