It has returned!

You know what I'm talking about?

It's smile-licious....



Once a year, Tim Hortons has Smile Cookies (chocolate chunk) for $1. 100% of the profit goes toward local charities, hospitals and programs. Yay!

And let's be serious...they're simply just soft, chewy and delicious (not to mention they have a big old smile on there)!

Sometimes I wish all my food smiled at me. 

Come on now, they can't get it perfect every time. I mean, there was a chocolate chunk in the way...

Besides, what it lacked in appearance was made up for in deliciousness. ;)

We only have until the 29th...and I don't think it's so hard to do, in fact they're quite tasty.
So go! 
Do your part! 
Eat cookies!
(Maybe do some squats or crunches after??)

And for goodness sakes, bring me one. 
They make for a happy Trudy ;)

Hey, I'm just helping out the cookie at a time. 

Love you too.

PS. Have you updated your iPhone yet?? What do you think?
I've heard lots of people aren't a fan...but, I love it!

Hey Apple Users!

Have you update your iPhone/iPads yet??

It's awesome!  :D
Almost feels like a whole new phone...

Love you too.

PS. I'm still sad about my vehicle :(

And it's only ONE week old.... :(

What's a Trudy to do??

Sad panda.

Love you too.

No contacts in the shower?

What happens when a Trudy isn't wearing contacts in the shower?

She grabs (and uses) conditioner first....on the day she was using the expensive stuff too!

Then, somehow, she manages to get a bunch of face wash in her eyes. That burns.
Why doesn't this happen when the contacts are in?
Is she just more cautious with them in?


Does this ever happen to you?
Or is it just me...?

Showering can be difficult when you're partially blind....


Not to mention you wouldn't be able to see spiders that could be creeping up...

Love you too.

Are you superstitious??

Happy Friday the 13th!

I'm not superstitious at today has been just dandy. Luckily no black cats crossed my path ;)
Bruce isn't entirely black...y'know?

Lately I've been up to...! Lots to do! It's going to be busy for sure...

I'm really enjoying it though!
There's only about 30 people in my program...and we get to stay together for every class and I think it's nice.
We're getting to know each other pretty well and, for the most part, it's quite fun!

There are a couple of people that annoy me...but I'd say that's pretty normal.

So far so good!

My health related classes are really interesting...communications as well! (Though I've pretty well already taken communications, so it's more of a refresher).
Anatomy, I've also already taken...but it's a definitely necessary refresher. I feel as though I'm just learning everything from scratch! So much to memorize! *.*

Lots of reading to be done!

How's school going for you?
Or what are you up to?

Love you too.

PS. Did you see which vehicle I chose? ;)

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

The chosen one!

As most of you know, I've been looking at and test driving some vehicles to find my new snazzy car (well...vehicle, not necessarily car).

And the moment has arrived. Yes, I have chosen!

Any guesses?

Here's one hint...

It's a Subaru!

The Subaru Forester is the winner! Yay!
And I got to pick it up last night ^^

So pretty :3
When I picked it up, it only had 11 km on it. Seems so crazy to me!
This is where I was sitting at today...

I've driven basically any old vehicle  my whole life, so it's very exciting to have my own (with Scott) brand new vehicle!

As I drove away from the dealership, I was scared...
What if someone crashes into my beautiful new car?!
It's so perfect right now!

When it came down to making a decision, they're all beautiful cars. I looked into safety ratings and reviews and in the end, Subaru was just my favourite! It had better visibility than most of the others, pretty reliable reviews, and good safety ratings. 

Plus, I just love it!

Happy Trudy :D!

Be excited for me!

Love you too.

PS. I'm not a huge fan of the new car smell....but I love it anyways, because I have a new car? :D

Look at me!

So if you can recall my last post, I'm taking a journey and going back to school!

I don't officially start until this upcoming week, but I had one class this week.

I was feeling a little skeptical...

But overall, it went alright! 

I got my campus card, I bought my small mound of textbooks and I went to my one class. It was all relatively pain free - besides my shoulder after hauling all those books back to the truck. *.*

I even got Scott's truck all shined up!

It was a fairly long many dead bugs from the few visits I made to see Scott!
All pretty now though :)

Who else started school this week?
Anything exciting this weekend?

I've been doing a few things around the house and getting some reading done for next week.
I'm not looking forward to the presentations...that's for sure. D;

Love you too.

The post you've been waiting 'news'.

Some of you already know what it is.

Some of you have been guessing what it is.

And I'm sure most of you ARE WRONG.

So let's just start with this...

NO!!! I am NOT pregnant.
(I feel like I'm still a baby myself people).

Now that we've got THAT out of the way, we can proceed...

A couple months ago, I got all serious here on the blog.
I had some thoughts on life, education, and feeling very confused with what I should do.
I felt unfulfilled. I had always wanted to go back to school. But I was scared and unsure.

Quite a while before that, on a whim, I had applied to and gotten accepted into a Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma program.
I've been out of school for a good three years now...I was working, making money, married, and kind of set in life. But I wasn't happy.

Was I to just suck it up? Or do I try to pursue this so called happiness?

Well, I'm trying to pursue it!
Do I know this will make me happy?
Well, can someone ever know without trying?

So what did I do?
I paid the deposit to hold my place in the program and then I didn't do anything.
If anyone asked, I just told them that I wasn't even sure if I was going.

But eventually, I just decided (although I was still nervous).
(That's kind of what I do...I'm indecisive until suddenly I feel very decided).
I didn't know what would make me happy, but I knew I wouldn't know this unless I tried!

I paid off all my old student loans, I saved some money to go to school, and I talked to Scott...and he was excited and encouraged me to go through with it.

For a while now, fitness has been a major interest of mine and I enjoy researching within it and helping and motivating others. I'm also quite interested in nutrition, anatomy and other such aspects.
Too bad I didn't think of this a while ago when I was already taking most of these classes ;)

Again, no....I don't KNOW with a certainty that this is what I SHOULD be doing and that this will make me feel fulfilled or satisfied in life. However, I do know that this FEELS like a step in the right direction and although it's kind of scary for me, I'm excited for a change!

Hopefully all goes alright ;)

Any advice? Opinions?
Let me know! And wish me luck!

Guess I don't need to worry about the old 'school envy' this I'll just have to try not to hate all the college kids ;)

Love you too.

PS. Bruce looks pretty cute eating watermelon, eh?

Monday, September 2, 2013


(Did you read my last post where I was reminiscing?)

I've found it...THE watermelon of all watermelons! crisp... juicy... sweet...

Even Bruce likes it, though that's not saying much because I'm pretty sure he'd eat any watermelon.

Oh! And if you didn't know...Bruce loves watermelon!

Have you had some delicious watermelon this year?
Or are you even a fan?

Love you too.

A look in the past!

September?? What?!!?

I can't even believe it.
The days are getting shorter, leaves are starting to change color and fall, and Summer is quickly coming to an end. (Though you wouldn't know it by how often the ice cream truck comes by...)

And I'm trying to blog a little more often, yes for you, but mainly for me and my record keeping.
I like to look back at my posts and the ridiculousness I've been through :)

Approximately a year ago here's what was going on...

...I was getting married!  (Ok...slightly over a year ago, but close enough!)
Leaving behind the single life and moving onto a pretty big adventure (if I do say so myself).
It has not been easy, but overall...I've loved it! And I love you Scott :)
(I'm allowed to be sentimental and lame from time to time...this is my writing place!)

(picture c/o Mel...and my Facebook)

(picture c/o Dar...and also my Facebook)

...Honeymoon! We weren't able to take our honeymoon until the mid to end of August. We went to California and had a great time! I miss it...and the many fro-yo trips ;)

...George-aversary! Almost exactly a year ago, we had a honeymoon kitten. :D I found some adorable kittens on kijiji and knew I NEEDED one. I fell in love with a little ball of fluff and adorable-ness! 
He's still cute and fluffy...but now he acts like he's a crotchety, old grandpa cat. Let's blame Bruce.
Very happy I got you George, even though it seems like you hate me sometimes...)

(and an extra picture, because he's so dang cute)

...I got in a car accident. Let's not talk about it. Instead let's hope and pray that my driving luck has changed for the better! Especially since I've been looking for brand new cars!


...SMILE COOKIES! If my blog knows one thing, it's that smile cookies (from Tim Horton's) should be coming out in the next couple weeks. YAAYYYYYY!
There's just something about that smile...


...I was just awesome! You should go read some of my older posts (if you want). They're...interesting... ;)

Well that was certainly fun for me, and I hope you guys didn't mind it either ;)

Hey, if nothing else...those were the first wedding pictures to make it to the blog!
I'm horrible... 

Do you remember anything major from a year ago??
And (you Canadian's) have you heard anything about the smiling cookies??

Love you too.

PS. That news I mentioned is still coming...patience!
