It's been a busy week! It's been an exciting week! Want to know why? Well, I'll show you in pictures!

I put my skates on for the first time in over 3 years. Oh how I missed the feeling of the ice under me. Yes, I am rusty but I was pleased that I could still do a right back outside twizzel. Want to know what it is? Google it! I missed the ice and my skates. We may have to have another reunion this next week. 

Ok, I do have other exciting news other than my time on the ice. It's the reason for all the trips to MTL, the reason I am still in Canada, and the reason I have not been allowed to buy any new clothes. I got a special delivery by courier yesterday morning:

Watch out America, I am on my way! I already hear J Crew calling my name. Kidding! I really cannot shop as I will be unemployed for a while, but I will be busy these next weeks unpacking our house, starting my garden, finding us new furniture and a car, and hanging out with B! I am so excited! Actually I am more than excited to move. 

In other and less exciting news:

Don't be fooled by what appears to be organization. I am trying to get all of my clothes, shoes, & toiletries into 3 suitcases, a duffel bag, and a large box. I got rid of a ton of stuff and still have enough clothes to feed a third world country (or however the saying goes)! The space isn't actually the issue, it is the 50lb weight limit per bag. Oh and I am packing my skates (since we have been reunited and there is one skating rink in all of Baton Rouge)... because those aren't heavy at all.

Here are some of my fave photos from MTL.  My chai latte from Antoine et JamesThe Notre Dame light up at night. Up a creek, with a paddle... an HBC paddle. The creepiest window ever. 

 The spicy oil I had on my pizza crust one night, a little drizzle went a long way! My sugar cookie I ate while missing B. My bag of goodies from The Orange Boot. The most beautiful window in MTL, at the Christmas store. I thought of my F-I-L but it was not open so I could not buy him a Santa Clause.

Time for a relaxing weekend... okay not so relaxing, I have lots to get done! See you next week!



  1. I love all your pics...visiting from InstaFriday!

    And that's awesome that you're an ice skater!

  2. I looove to ice skate too! I should really try to skate more often, but I don't think I can do a right back outside twizzel. Are you visiting the US or are you moving here? Either way, it sounds like an exciting adventure. Have a great weekend!

  3. Yay for ice skating! I have tried a few times, but I am really not that great. It's fun though!
