A long wait at the hospital

This week was very eventful! My sister went into labour and had baby Claire. It was a big suprise since she was a bit early and we all thought it was going to be a boy! I guess a lot of people end up having their baby on a full moon and my sister was one of them. Claire is so beautiful and so tiny. I am so excited to be an aunt and take Claire on many adventures. We were at the hospital all day but she was worth the wait! Thankfully, I had the day off so I was able to go to Toronto. I can't wait to see her again and spend more time with her.

In less important news, exam season is coming up and I am quite dreading it but I guess who isn't? The only good thing about end of the semester exams is that you get time off. I am such a procrastinator though so I am interested to see how I do haha. This weekend was the last weekend that was study free. I did some shopping and Mike and I got lattes and walked around Victoria Park, where they had decorated it all up for christmas. It was so pretty to look at and it wasn't too cold of a night where I couldn't enjoy it which was great.I wish I had a profesisonal camera to take better photos of the lights and just for this blog in general. In the weeks to come, we are going to go ice skating. I am terrible, so there is going to be a lot of falling and blisters. Mike thinks he will be good because he is a good rollerblader. I told him it's not the same thing but he's convinced. I guess we shall see!

Said the whale!

This past thursday I skipped my night class and headed to a concert at school with Mike and met up with some friends there too! It was soo fun and Said the Whale was awesome! It was so worth not going to class ha. They played my favourite song and Mike's so needless to say we left like very happy campers. My favourite song is " Loveless" check out the video, it is quite hilarious and cute. How could you not like 2 young kids falling in love and growing old together yet still looking like kids? To make the night better, we got free beers when entering. I gave mine to Mike since I had to drive and not to much of a fan of beer anyways. There was one guy beside me at the concert who was on his phone the whole time and not even smiling, what's the point of going? I was singing and dancing like a weirdo but I didn't care and neither did anyone there which is great. I hate when there are people at concerts who just give dirty looks to people having fun.We got home at like 1:30 and I had to get up at 7 am for class.


In other news, I do not have to wake up at 5 am anymore to go to the hospital for my placement because it is now comepleted ! yay sleep:)
Also, I know my photos have not been the best quality but with little daylight and most of that daylight spent inside due to school, it is hard to get decent photos!
I hope everyone had a good weekend!

If you have not heard of Said the Whale I recommend you listen to them! Here is there site: and check out my favourite song -

Santa Claus parade

okay so these photos did not turn out so great! I was too cold to take pictures outside so the bad lighting in my house resulted in some pretty crappy quality photos but since I haven't blogged in a bit they will have to do!
My 12 hour shifts have been driving me slighty insane. Everyone is saying get used to it since when you are a nurse you will be doing these shifts all the time but what they don't realize is that I have homework, exams, and projects on top of that! I am just so happy that they end soon! This past weekend I went to the santa claus parade. This year wasn't so great ( where was the candy?) but it was fun to get some hot chocolate and cuddle as we watched the "floats" ( cars decorated) pass by us. Mike and I also went to the theatres and saw Perks of Being a Wallflower. It was really great and I recommend it! Other than that I have been staying in and trying to keep warm. I hear snow is coming tomorrow so out comes the winter boots! It is hard to blog when it's so cold out and indoor photos are bad quality. Hopefully I can keep it up. Anywho,I better get some sleep since I have to get up at 5 am ! Hope everyone had a great monday ( or as good as any monday could possibly be).

Mary Poppins and Bert

This Halloween, Mike and I went as Marry Poppins and Bert ( me being mary poppins of course). It took us literally eight hours of driving all around town to find a vest for his costume and a blouse for mine. Who knew trying to find a plain white blouse was hard? I would find one but then it would be really expensive and even the one I got at Wal-mart was still more than what I wanted to pay! After finally finding the blouse and his vest ( right before the store closed and the store only took cash and we only had 6 bucks in cash, thankfully she took it!) we headed to my friend from nursing's party. It was really fun and casual and we met some new people. This all happened after my midterm so I was just happy to not study and be crammed in my room with books. The rest of the weekend was spent doing nothing much at all but that is what I wanted after such a hectic week!
This is the only good picture I got of us! The only thing is that is doesn't show my umbrella and purse! Well I hope everyone had a really great Halloween weekend!

Pumpkin carving

Since I had two exams one on friday and the other on saturday, I needed to have a good weekend after my saturday exam. I was so tired of studying and I just wanted to have some fun! This weekend consisted of haircuts, shopping, and best of all pumpkin carving. My pumpkin looks scared while Mike's pumpkin looks quite scary ha. The pumpkins were only a dollar and were at some random pumpkin patch that had no one there to give the money to so you leave your money in this little box. After getting our shoes all muddy, we brought these babies home. We of course made pumpkin seeds too. We added pizza seasoning to them and they surprisingly tasted good. While we carved, we watched The simpsons treehouse of horror episodes hehe. At night we got 
lazy and we were going to watch a scary movie but it wouldn't load so we watched desperate housewives. It was a nice relaxing weekend which is exactly what I needed. I have one more midterm this Saturday and then I am going to a Halloween party! I hope everyone has a good week!

Colours of Fall

It was a perfect day for a bike ride indeed. On saturday, I tested out my new bike rack for the car. While riding to the park , I frequently and anxiously kept checking the back window to make sure our bikes have't fallen off the car. Luckily, our bikes made it safely to the park. Mike and I rode our bikes, ate cheese curds, and looked at the expensive hidden houses behind the trees. The weather was perfect and just had a perfect amount of breeze to stop me from being overheated and gross feeling like in the summer. The trees looked beautiful in the park. Earlier in the day we were supposed to go apple picking and I had the whole day planned out. We would get up early, pick apples, and then go buy some ingredients at the store and make an apple pie. Unfortunately, my amazing plan got squashed as we drove all the way out to the farm and they said there are no apples to pick ! It really sucked but I am glad we got to go for a bike ride since it might be one of our lasts of the season. We finished our day off by eating popcorn and watching desperate housewives as well as planning a day to go to a haunted corn maze! I am super excited for that. It was a really great much deserved relaxing weekend, but no its back to the grind.I hope everyone was able to enjoy the great weather and had a great weekend!
