i've got the cure for you

I’m the Fundraising Coordinator for this year’s Dignitas Team at U of T St. George. We held a Race for Dignity event last week, Feb 4th,  to help fundraise and raise awareness for the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the MSB lobby. A 12-hour Bike-a-thon event. No, you don’t bike 12 hours straight. You come in and book what time you want to ride with a team. We had an awesome bake sale, and those that bought something would know. The prizes were even more awesome. I pulled in some great donations from Lush (A Hat Box FILLED with soap and salt goodness), Umbra gift cards, a signed Maple Leafs Hockey Stick (I took a picture to remember my hard work for the stick), and more of course. Those who didn’t participate, you truly missed out but don’t FRET, there’s still next year. Raised quite a bit of money and relieved  to know it’s going to the right place.

Merry Christmas Eve!

No Christmas tree this year again, marking this the fourth year. House seems to be lacking more and more space. No gifts under the tree but Christmas came early in many ways. Sound of music, alice fazooli’s, alexander mcqueen kicks, jbrand, hot chocolate, blue marlin, versace for the love, sushi, the almost dior ring (the DIY paper ring will do), some bubbly, quality time….  these are a few of my favourite things.

After two painful back aching hours of shoveling snow, my brother and I manage to successful plough through 30+ cm of snow. Opening the door was already a struggle but it was nothing compared to the amount of snow we were looking once we stepped outside. All I could say was “omfgosh, that’s a crap load of snow”. I will post up pictures to show much labour work was done and how long our driveway is. It didn’t turn out as boring as I thought  it would’ve been since we let our beloved dog, Lassie, out to join us on the fun. Her hopping, and swimming through the snow was quite cute and amusing. Although, it was frustrating when she would push more snow into the nicely shoveled area we just did. I haven’t seen snow like this since I was a child. Definitely a white Christmas this year. I can’t wait to put on my mitts and throw an unexpected snowball at Ted and of course, unleash a snowball fight between us. (:
