The next scanky job to be done

This will be done this summer, nothing worse than a rotting roof

my neighbour and I redid the whole carport roof around 15years ago, here we go again. not the whole roof though its just the sides that are leaking

Summer, summer summer

We have awesome weather today, 26

i've broken out one of my summer dresses

I'm wearing:

Old Navy ruffle dress
thrifted black sandals which I changed to salmon sandals after seeing these pics

sorry the pics aren't the best, I dropped my 2nd F'en camera and now am using T's which I don't know how to use properly

i've always wanted some Coach rings, this is my knock off  version

Big shout out to Purina

I got a voucher in the mail from Purina to fill out online for a free 7kg container of the kitty litter I already use, sounds like a no brainer, right?

well to my surprise they also delivered some yummie goodies to go along with it. the cats love those little party mix treats. they actually trip over themselves trying to get them from me. i've never seen them so excited. i'll be sure to buy more in the future as they also sent coupons for them

i've decided I love love love coupons, hey i'm just saying, if i'm buying the stuff already...

ssssssssooooooooo looking forward to seeing everyone, I feel so lonely out here by myself

Wicked, heh heh

T and I treated Grandma to a night out for dinner and to the play Wicked.

its about how Glenda the good witch and the wicked witch of the wests sister met, so its pre Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz

it was lovely and we had a great time

we met a Grandma's then took the bus to the seabus then the seabus to downtown

I don't take public transit, EVER, so it was fun

we went to Earls on Top on Robson for drinks, appy's and dinner

forgot to take photos of dinner but it was yum! after dinner we always package up the leftovers and find a street person thats hungry. found a great guy asleep in a wheelchair with doves perched all over him. he was pleased. we gave him steak, salad and lots of pasta

the show was at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre

we had awesome seats, you could see the whites of their eyes

couldn't take any photos while the show was going on so took these from their website

I did take this one, its an animated dragon, quite cool

back on the seabus home I took this photo of the Pan Pacific convention center. its where the cruise ships dock, I don't know if you can tell but those blue lights are set up to look like the sails of a ship

my hair with flowers

it was a great night had by all

Steve Madden bow tie purse

When the hair on the back of my neck starts I know I must at the very least pop my head into the valu village. I try not to go too often as I always find something. saving money can be expensive so I don't go more than once a month

today was an extremely great day for name brands

my best find was this black Steve Madden bow tie purse. looks brand new and like its never been used.

I found photos of it online and in different colors, I got the black one, its quite large and with an over the shoulder and hand held version of straps i'm all set

I also got what i've been looking for for years which is a boyfriend jacket. its a black Pierre Cardin. and the cutest summer dress, it reminds me of the 50's. its a very simple black dress with white stitching. its tight around the bodace and flares at the bottom, you'll love it when I show you

things that got away:

orange pair of Anne Klein summer slings (just didn't love them)
vintage Gucci purse (I just could not confirm if it was original because it was likely such a great knock off)
Coach purse (really lovely but fading at the bottom)
Prada runners, size 6, (I could have been sick that they were the wrong size)
Ralph Lauren crop jacket (loved it but it was double breasted and I don't like to wear jackets I can only wear buttoned up)

thats if for my day
