Hi everyone!  How are you?

Vancouver was hit with a snow storm this week, so things got a little crazy!  Since historically we have a warmer climate, the city has never been fully prepared for when we get snow.  There just aren't enough snow plows for the whole city, and they always seem to be deployed half a day late.  Our public transit isn't properly equipped for snow, either, so the buses are always backed up, late, and / or stuck because they can't get up hills.  Our Sky Train (comparable to a subway system, but the majority is above ground) system is OK in the snow, but if it gets too icy it's out of commission.  Needless to say, this week a bit of a disaster for getting around!  Luckily I live close to work, the gym, and a small grocery store, so I was OK!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to 2020!

I hope you all had a great holiday break.  T & I went to the Okanagan for a week over Christmas which was lovely and relaxing.  There isn't a lot to do there so we spent most of our time just hanging out with family eating, drinking, reading and doing puzzles.  We made & decorated Star Wars sugar cookies with my sister's family and then went to see Rise of Skywalker; we drove around on Christmas Eve looking at all the houses lit up; we had Christmas brunch at my parent's house and dinner at my Aunt's (I made caramel apple upside down cake for dessert!); we watched old movies on Boxing Day; went wine tasting and then did karaoke at our local ski hill for my cousin's wife's birthday, and then came back to Vancouver for the last 5 days of the holidays!

The day after we got back, T had plans with friends so I went downtown to return a few Cyber Week purchases (this, this and these), and to look for some jeans at Nordstrom since I had a couple of gift cards.  I also wanted to try on these boots, but they didn't have them in stock.  I tried on these ones instead and really liked them, but they weren't on sale so were about twice as much, and I was concerned about not being able to wear socks since the side cut-out is so low.  One of the reasons I would choose a boot over a flat is because you can wear socks with boots which equals warmer feet!

I ended up buying this pair of jeans by Mother and Nordstrom hemmed them for me for free.  I wore them last weekend and so far they are great!  I sized down one size in these.

I worked on January 2 and 3 but this week was my full first week back!
