a normal person would stay at home, relax, perhaps fill orders for the sistahs and take it easy. Right? Right. Unfortunately, we aren’t talking about normal people today. You may think I don’t have many friends as I ALWAYS talk about Nicky.. you’re right! LOL. Just kidding.. Nicky’s role in my life is not only mentor.. but ‘partner in crime’. So I have been stalking my supplier for a product I ran out of and he finally received it so I had ANTZ in my PANTZ.. I mean really.. should I keep the sistahs waiting for a product??? NOT SO MUCH in my humble opinion.. Before I ventured out to pick up my little Tyler from school I called Nicky.. “whatcha doing today?” I ask… she says “whhhhyyyyy?” and I say “well, I was thinking…” and she says “I’m IN!”. So I say “you don’t even know what I am talking about?!” she says “it doesn’t matter.. I’M IN”.. so I say “did you take a peek outside”? She says, “oh Em, we’re Montrealers.. we’re used to this HORRIBLE weather”.. and I say “I GOTS TO pick up some goodies for my girlZ (that’s YOU everybody).. Nicky says, “I’ll be in the car in 5″… so that’s the beginning of a wonderful shopping day. did you ever have those days where all you wanted to do was be surrounded by pretty things? Well, I had one of those days again.. so we drove at about 2km /hour .. In the U.S. that would equate to “REALLLL SLOWWWWW” and off we went! Oh I mustn’t forget to tell you that OF COURSE I have no windshield washer fluid left.. the beep in my van is beeping and I had to stop to buy some (OF COURSE I was cursing my husband.. wouldn’t YOU????)… SO I get 2 bottles.. had to go OUT OF THE WAY, and I fill the car up with some.. I get back in the car and look at Nicky and say.. “just do me a favor and look on the floor”.. we both look down and sure enough.. A BRAND SPANKING NEW bottle of windshield washer fluid (sorry for swearing at ya Ry).. what a pain.. wasted 20 minutes for nothing (insert FROWN here).
We get there 45 minutes later and the parking lot was FULLLL OF SNOOOOWWW (like you need these details).. so I created my own spot.. we get outta the car and there is tons of fresh snow so Nicky says to me ” I will follow in your footsteps”.. I say “no problemo” so I create the trail… Then she says ” Be Care—f”, “don’t F—-all”.. well as soon as those words came out of her mouth I heard SILENCE. Deafening silence.. and I was so excited to get there that I forgot about miss magoo following me… I turn back and I see the black heap…She’s telling me to be careful and not to fall…. and kerplunk.. she is flat on her buttola .. she slipped and fell. Now here is the clincher.. I didn’t know what to do so within seconds we both started to hysterically laugh.. this lovely gentleman was watching us from afar and asked if we needed help and just shook his head at me while I was laughing.. not nice but I think we both needed that.. (She’s being realllllly quiet right now.. I think she is soaking in a hot tub..LOL)
So we get into the place (finally) and I got SUCH goodies.. beautiful papers and lots of great blog candy/prizes for the sistahs..
all in all, despite the ‘accident’ on the sidewalk we had a GREAT day with lots of inspiration
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY GIRLIES!!!
