January 12 07

so…our husbands decided to surprise us on Wednesday night and NOT tell us where we were going. if any of you have ever met me or Sharon, you’d know that this idea was NOT the wisest. We both control freaks and not knowing where we were going…and why we were told to wear running shoes (gym shoes? tennis shoes? sneakers? runners? what do you call ’em?)…was just about killing us. trampolining? (sharon’s guess) rock climbing? (Shana’s guess) paintball? (my guess).

nope. we were all wrong.


could you die? is there anything more Canadian than that? I was completely unprepared…i wouldn’t have worn low-slung jeans that showed my crack off to the entire Richmond Hill Curling Club…and i would have warn warmer clothes. i had very cold toes, fingers and nose. but, it was SO MUCH FUN. we really had a great time.

ETA. i’ve never been curling before. i’ve never even considered it. it’s not something anyone i know does on a regular basis or has even ever done. that’s why it was hilarious. because we never would have expected this! bowling sure. skating, even. but curling??? i’ve only seen it on tv!

this is me. falling flat on my ass. class-y.

look at me…pretending i’m all professional and stuff…

Grey’s Anatomy

~ i know i’m in the minority here…but i don’t want this alex/addison thing to happen. i would so much prefer them to have some sexual tension and NOT get it on. there’s far too much passing around of partners on this show.

~ so…obviously Izzy pays for this girl’s surgery. (anyone recognize her? anyone? she played the ADORABLE little girl in when a man loves a woman. AND she was Christine Lahti’s daughter on Chicago Hope..just a bit of trivia there. ) which is all well and good. Izzy makes good use of her money….and i’m glad she finally deposited it and all…but the scene at the bank…way too over the top for me?

~it’s too soon for mcdreamy and meredith to have issues. i want them to be happy. why can’t anyone just be happy?

~why can’t we be mean to Mcsteamy THIS WEEK? any ideas? abortion? miscarriage?

~Callie’s staring scared me too. i’m glad George called her out on it! oooh…but i loved their dancing over the pee bag! hilarious!

~ah, Bailey, how i love thee: “lots of hair, too many women, likes elevators and walks on the beach.” she forgot ferry boats and trailors…

~seriously? Burke and Cristina have a messed relationship. but i loved her on the couch at the end. nice touch there, Shonda.

~no voiceover??!! i did not like that!

  1. ohhh that looks like so much fun!!!! Plus how sweet are your hubby’s!!! I can’t even drag mine to a planned “you don’t have to do anything” date!!!!

  2. OMG! That is so rad! I can’t even tell you! Yes, I know….but I am also half Canadian (my dad was born there) and I grew up close enough to the boarder – literly 1 mile – so I can totally tell you that, curling rocks! LOL

  3. I TOLD YOU SO – you are truly canadian. and you were wearing sneakers. this whole midwest ‘gym shoe’ business has got to be stopped.

  4. It looks like you are wearing runners. I have lived every moment of my life in Canada and still have not gone curling. I am a bad Canadian.

  5. That’s awesome! Curling is always something I watch (marvel at) during the Olympics.

  6. Cute! I HATE curling as I had a really bad experience which I keep promising to post and never do. One day.
    But I married into a curling family. Scary.
    PS You have great hair.

  7. I love love love curling… to watch… not to do – I could never attempt it – my thoughts are that curling should involve helmets.

  8. Dude, you look like you’re 15! Curling! That’s hilarious! I love that you got taken on a surprise curling date!

  9. I have never gone curling either, and I have lived here all my life…….

    Rock On, Eh?!!!!!!!

  10. That DOES look like fun!

    Comment by Chris on January 12, 2007
  11. That looks like so much fun! And you look so adorable!

    You’re definitely wearing sneakers/tennies (the two words are interchangeable around here).

  12. Last time we let the guys do all the planning we had a drunken night of bowling.

    It looks like you had a great time!

  13. I was in England during the last winter olympics, and I could not get over how many curling events they aired on good ole BBC.

    Sorry, but I don’t think we, your neighbors to the south, get it. But it seems the Brits do.

    Comment by Rebecca on January 12, 2007
  14. That is so funny. I hadn’t even heard of curling until a few days ago when a friend of mine who lives in North Carolina mentioned it. Sounds like y’all had a great time. I don’t even think we have anywhere to play that around here. Texans just must not be up on the curling thing. We don’t even have snow.

  15. we went curling for our company Christmas party and had a blast… I suck at it, but it was lots of fun.

    Comment by huberama on January 12, 2007
  16. Looks like fun- that’s great he took you out on a surprise date, even if you weren’t completely outfitted for the event. 🙂

    God, I love how glossy your hair looks in that picture!! What the heck do you use for shampoo and conditioner??

    Comment by Tamsen on January 12, 2007
  17. that is awesome! i’ve always wanted to go curling. one time when i went up to vancouver on my own i stopped for dinner in a sports bar and all they had on tv was curling. i was quickly reminded i wasn’t in florida any more!

    Comment by rob on January 12, 2007
  18. You do have the best hair!

    If my husband took me to a curling arena? I’d have cried. Stomped my feet. Totally hissy fit. Glad you had fun, though! Great pics! You look gorj — as always!!!

  19. I love curling! Frankly it is the only kind of sweeping i like to do. 🙂

    Comment by Gwen on January 12, 2007
  20. Great pictures. LOVE the Grey’s Anatomy recap. I loved the pee dance too.

  21. wanna go for some brewskies and poutine?

    Comment by anne/crazymumma on January 13, 2007
  22. I’ve seen it on the olympics — it looks really interesting, like pool on ice!

  23. Curling? OMG! I’m from upstate NY and I’ve never done that. But if you were a Boca babe, instead of your crack everyone would have seen your thong underwear!

    In the spirit of your miscellaneous post, I’d like to add that I will be desolate if you ever change your header. When I bring up all my blogs in tabs and I get to yours with the girls at the table chatting it makes me happy! Part of it is, of course, knowing it’s your blog. But part of it is just the image.

    Alex/Addison…every WOMAN I know is so NOT into that happening. The guys who watch it, however, are all about it happening. My friend’s husband said, “Well, Alex is hot.” I looked at him like he had two heads…hot? No, not really. My suggestion is for Addison and CALLIE to have a kiss over the neonatal incubator!

    Bailey rocks!

    Comment by Di on January 13, 2007
  24. The scoliosis girl was also on Arrested Development!

    Christina and Burke are breaking my heart.

    George and Callie are adorable.

    Alex and Addison would just be wrong. I don’t know, there’s still a part of me that wants him back with Izzy. But I’m a strange girl.

    BTW – That curling thing looks awesome! And you are completely and totally adorable!

    Comment by stephanie on January 14, 2007
  25. Hey! I curl every week! I started just before my (now 7 years old!!) son was born, and you’re right! It’s a BLAST!! I even have my own ‘equipment’ now! 😉 Glad you had a great time.

    Comment by Jay on January 14, 2007
  26. Looks like fun. I have no idea how to do it – I’ve only seen it on t.v. I guess there’s a first time for everything. Great pics.

    Comment by bella on January 15, 2007
  27. I so want to try curling sometime. That looks like a ton of fun!

    Comment by Karen on January 15, 2007
