Worst Advice Ever

So... I broke my wrist again :( Obviously. People are offering me advice regularly, which for the most part has been positive. However, in my grumpy medicated state... some advice is not taken well.

"Be careful!"
"You should be more careful"
"Be careful next time!"

Oy! How is that advice! All I think is "great, thanks, if only someone had told me to be careful earlier, i've been running around carelessly". How does one be more careful? avoid going outside? avoid fun? let fear of hurting my arm consume me? argg... I'm so frustrated with hearing that I should be careful. Its not constructive advice, or positive advice, or comforting. If anything it makes me feel pitied - "oh, you poor girl, you should be more careful" - as though i'm the only person ever to break a bone or as though they are superior because they never would've been careless enough to let this happen. I'm sure everyone means well...

Ok, sorry. I had to vent. I'm such a grumpasaurus.

p.s. - I accidentally got a glow-in-the-dark cast, lol
p.p.s. - sorry, if you gave me this advice! I still appreciate you.... :)

Purple Party!

Here are some long awaited pictures from the fabulous purple party we had earlier this month! We went all out... purple food, purple drinks, purple decor.

"Why?" you ask... because we wanted to!

We came to the realization that purple is the greatest colour right now, and that basically everyone we know owns purple clothes (minus a couple guys that went out and bought shirts for the party, lol). Anyways, here's what you missed if you couldn't be there...

Abby actually painted these purple paintings, which is crazy awesome. They are now hanging safely in my bedroom so that she could replace the real paintings that belong on that wall.

Purple food and eating tools. An absolute must!

Balloons. Classic decor to start the party! Thank you dollar store :)

All the purple toys at the top of the kitchen counter were stolen from work, lol. Well.. borrowed. I particularly like the oral cancer book... I think it set the mood for the party from the get-go.

More purple... we decorated the candles ourselves!

Hilarious purple hangers. Nice surprise for our winter coats.

We invited the Queen as well. Sadly, she wasn't able to make it. But she did wear purple in honour of our party, and get the picture published just in time for the party!

Yummmm :) These were truly delicious. It took some time to raid the candy bins at SuperStore for purple candy, but so worth it!

Purple Party Planners extraordinaire! True Story.

K, that's all the purple I have for now. Hope you enjoyed!

5 great things

Here are 5 more things I'm loving right now:

1. Buying kitchen supplies (e.g. new beaters!)

2. ENGAGEMENTS!!! Can't say who... but someone I know is getting married!!

3. Dinner parties with new friends that cause you to stay up laughing hysterically and drinking wine long into the night

4. New jewellery. My bestie gave me a ring that I wear on my thumb these days. I heart the ring. true story.

5. The fact that my daddy is coming to visit! Well... he's mostly coming to see his new bike, but he's also visiting a bit!

Anything you are loving right now?! Add to the list!

ps - these are in no particular order... I don't like kitchen supplies more than engagements, lol.
