Sad Dog in a Diaper

Sad Dog in a Diaper

Dog is none too happy right now. She is stuck in a diaper for the time being until she is done her heat. I’ve never had to deal with an unspayed dog before and I never hope to again. Sad dog’s spay is going to be scheduled asap when the vet clears her for it. She still prob needs to gain a few more pounds though.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving weekend is rapidly approaching for those of us residing in Canada, which means I will be hosting my first ever holiday dinner. We’ve manage to keep it down to about 16 people so far, but having that many people in our small house means we have to re-arrange the entire living room to create room to put all the tables we need. 

I’m super stoked about the cooking and eating, but equally excited to see my sisters! My younger sis is in Kingston at school right now and my twin is out in Quebec on a military base so I don’t get to see either of them often enough. 

Below are some of the recipes we are trying out this year in addition to deep-frying a turkey, also a first:

Clever Retail Event

Stylish Surprise Apparel

There is a company called Modcloth, maybe you’ve heard of them, they offer retro/vintage inspired clothing. I recently bought something from them in an event of like which I’ve never seen before. “Stylish Surprise” event entails their customers purchasing a clothing ‘surprise’ for $15 or a shoe ‘surprise’ for $5. Items you get in your surprise package includes something valued from $30 up to a bit under $300. I bought a clothing surprise so I’m interested to see what I get. The clothing can include any of their tops, bottoms, dresses and even outerwear! It’s exciting way to shop but I’m hopeful I get something I like.

Shopping online always brings a bit on anticipation because you have to wait, no instant gratification like you receive when you go into a store to make a purchase. This event adds onto the anticipation and includes some mystery, who knows what I could get! I like the uniqueness of this event, it’s a clever end of season event (I’m not sure if they clear out summer stuff using it or not but cool none the less)

Would you buy at an event like this?
