1. My blog contest -Enter people! Enter ..even if you don't want to comment, you can retweet / facebook / blog it :) It's super easy and awesome. Not to mention the fact that you could get something free out of it! This is always a selling point for me, seeing as I love all things when they are free. Regardless of how silly or, like in this case, awesome they may be! Plus it will be a hilarious story!
2. Spring Trends -Much different in Cape Breton than the rest of the world apparently! Today at work some of the highlights of spring clothing were:
A. Cropped bleached jean shorts that are slightly too big leading to my view of your gray underroos that are stained with some black substance. Also, to match? A lovely stained gray t-shirt, white socks and sneakers.
B. Button-up shirts that are about to pop because they are 3 sizes too small over giant beer bellies! Along with pants that are straight from ...I don't even know. They were awful though.
C. Hats used as an attempt to cover up whatever the hell you think you're growing on top of your head. I'm pretty sure it's either not hair, or it started out that way but took on a life of its own because you stopped paying attention to it.
D. Very fancy pea coat with a fancy polo on underneath. This guy looked stylin' until ...I got up to ring him through and? Awful gray sweatpants that were easily 6 sizes too big for him that he pulled up about 6 times from being rung in until receiving his change.
A. Shorts. That's it. WHO WEARS SHORTS WHEN IT'S SNOWING OUTSIDE?!
B. Overweight woman who came in with a tshirt, an oversize mens' sweater AND a puffy jacket. Also sporting wayyyy too baggy jeans and flip flops. Can you say 'Gave up'?!
C. A teen in a skirt so short that she was constantly pulling at it .. along with a tube top and bra straps (gross) and high heels. At 10AM. Why does this scream 'I didn't go home last night' to me? Also, it makes me wonder where her parents are and why they are letting her traipse around in such clothes?!
D. Tights as pants (Topic 2). I repeat - THIS. IS. NOT. A. GOOD. LOOK. FOR. ANYONE. Stop trying to make it be.
Now, onto my photo of the day! It is cool .. it's Easter eggs. Prepare for a lot of Easter-y things from now until the event because this is easily my favorite holiday. It ties with my birthday as my most beloved event. Now, if only Easter could possibly fall ON my birthday, I'd be the happiest girl in the world. While likely to never happen, dream big! These Easter eggs are even better than the kind that come from chickens, ostriches or emus! Why? They are made of chocolate :) And they are wrapped in beautiful colors. Can't get any better than that. So, here they are:
*Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my light box?!
