Today I Confess


... Spring has finally sprung in Ontario and we have had several warm sunny days in a row! I have been able to leave my jacket at home a few times and get away with just a light cardigan. I even got to dine alfresco earlier this week. It was glorious.

... This also means that I desperately need to get some colour on my skin. I am so pale that I may actually blind you. I think I'll be bringing back my trusty self-tanner for some help.

... We went to trivia night on Tuesday and our team won! Sadly the questions did fall in my direction so I didn't contribute too much but I still had a good time. Mike goes almost every week but I only go once in a while. Anyone else do bar trivia?


... We have done nothing on our spring to-do list!! Ah.

... I started a book earlier this month and I just can't find the time or motivation to finish it right now. It was Under Magnolia by Frances Mayes who wrote Under The Tuscan Sun. What I read, I really enjoyed so I definitely plan to pick it up again in the future.


... There has been a lot going on these days and I'm feeling a little emotionally drained. I need a night where I go to bed at 9 and just rest.

So with that, I'm off. One more day until the weekend! Woo!

  8. Congrats on the trivia win! I never do well in trivia- either they are all sports questions or I get a mental block and just yell out the same answer 20 times

  11. Oh girl I'm about as white as white gets right now. It's terrible! And I live in the south, home of the tanned, so I'm sticking out like a sore thumb. I need to step up my game!

  12. I'm crazy tired too. I'm getting ready to move and packing and planning has left me exhausted. Thankfully I have a few days in between moving and starting my new job to get some rest and get myself together. I'm so bad at trivia. It's still fun to play though!

  14. I have never played bar trivia but my uncle does & he loves it...I may have to think about doing it, huh? Pop culture stuff, I can rock. :)

  15. We've finally had warmer weather here too and it makes such a big difference in everyone's mood! It's so nice! I've never done bar trivia, but it always sounds like it would be so much fun. So glad it's almost Friday & hopefully you can catch up on some rest this weekend.

  16. Amen to bed early - I've been wanting to do that all week and haven't quite found the day yet!

  17. I am so bad at trivia, ha! I can watch a whole series and then still not know all the random little trivia bits. I think I miss a lot of details because I tend to watch shows/movies while doing something else at the same time. So I follow the story line, but I miss little things. Making me terrible at trivia, ha!

    And girl, I hope you get some good rest soon!

  18. I wore shorts outside for the first time in at least a year today and was so self conscious about how white my legs were! LOL.
    This week I have been a terrible slacker on blogging BUT it feels good to just relax and go to bed early :) Hopefully next week I'll be better!
