weekly recap and some pics....

WOW, it is Monday night again.......usually I am bummed at this point....the end of my weekend....this week though, I have tons going on.....so I am ready to get this thing going come on already!!
Last week was busy...busy a work, busy with some staff issues, busy with the Clean Closet thing...and of course busy with the 12 day detox thing....chopping, prepping..and taking care of detox business if you know what I mean.........geesh.....so this is what I was up to this past week.

1- The final tally is in.......drum roll please.............we raised almost 600 dollars at the CleAn CloSet EveNt....ahhhhh so awesome.....it was so much fun....there were lots of people in and I think everyone bought something.......one lady bought 4 pairs of shoes....crazy...we had so much fun Sat after work transforming the salon into a clothing boutique...the high school student that works with me stayed and helped and also come in on Sunday...such a big help.... I am very pleased with how the whole thing turned out! "J" was joking that she had already borrowed these from me once and now she was going to just break down and buy them, seeing that they potentially may not be in my closet anymore.....haha....




"D", my old roommate...love her and her enthusiasm at the "sale"......lol she had to have those shoes!!!
2- I am in DETOX HELL......okay I am exaggerating but really I am ready for this to be over.....we have been doing really well though........no cheating at all...........man, I do miss a few things....I hate to admit this but I really really miss my little glass of wine with my dinner....this weekend was different......I have never had so many mugs of herbal teas in my life.....has anyone tried the Chocolate Chai...very nice.........


3- continuing on with the Detox theme.............I am broke...........my goodness....I buy this kind of food for myself all the time......but trying to keep the two of us with all these whole ingredients is breaking my bank.....geez.......so worth it though, we both have said many times how much better we are feeling...


4- of course my Grandmas cottage has been in the forefront of our minds all week(or maybe just my mind)lol.....I have been scouring magazines and websites for ideas.......I am going to be one sad girl if this whole thing doesn't pan out.....oh well I need to be patient....yah right....:)


5- I gave self-evaluation forms out to all of my stylist 2 weeks ago so I got them all back last week....it is always interesting getting those back.......listening to others perspectives.....so I am having individual meetings with each stylists this week....and then a full staff meeting the following week.....so lots of prep work for that!


6- I went for my first outdoor run today......it was a gorgeous day here today....13 degrees.......honestly that is balmy for March.....anyways started the season off with a 5k run so I was happy with that...


7-my cousin came over for dinner tonight......she is planning on going to Kenya in Sept to work at an orphanage for a few months....I am so proud of her...this is going to be such an awesome eye opening experience.....it was really interesting hearing the details tonight.........and what a good sport she is, enduring the detox supper......I'm sure she has stopped somewhere on her way home for something sweet.........lol


8- an award (or 2)...:)

So I never knew you could be given blog awards....but I was lucky enough to receive a few in the past few weeks.....so fun...who knew....this is a whole new world for me!!!
Thanks to my blogging friends....Sally at http://sallyannestephenson.blogspot.com/, and Maki at http://withlovesincerely.blogspot.com/.......as I have said before, I just find it amazing the friends that I have met through this blog...I am soooo glad I started doing this! Thank-You both so much for the awards...I love the fact that you enjoy reading my day to day ramblings.....
Now I am supposed to nominate other blogs that I read after receiving these awards....but I just can't choose.....you are all so great....so if you are reading this consider yourself a recipient...you have won 2 awards, for your awesome writing that keeps me laughing, crying, supporting and just loving life everyday........thanks ladies.....

So many fun things coming up this week.....my photography course that I'm taking with a good friend on Sat...we are meeting with my Grandma on Sunday......and then I think we are going to take a drive to a small tourist town close to were she lives, to scour some Antique Shops for the Vintage Initials I am obsessing about..........oh man I need to stop looking at magazines.....

Have a great week everyone...

Your closet shopping party looked like so much fun! I bet your loving the space in your closet! I cleaned out 13 bags and shipped it all to Salvation Army last week...I'm not loving life and was able to go from three closets to two! :)

Oh, and your balmy 13 degrees sounded very chilly until I remembered that you're in Canada and run on C. :)

oops, meant to say I'm NOW loving life. Not "I'm not loving life!"

Congrats on the sucess of your fundraiser! It looks awesome!

Props to for running a 5k on your first day out...I've just started running, and if it's even a little chilly out, I stick to the treadmill (or call it an "off" day, lol!)

congrats on your sale! :)

Dionne said...

Wow, congrats on the $600! It looks like people were having fun!

Oooh a Photography Course! I am jealous.

I'm so happy with how well your event went. Maybe you can make it an annual thing... ;)
Tell us more about the detox diet. Is it one you made up or are you following some kind of guidelines? I'm intrigued.
So jealous of your photography class...I would love to take one. But I'll have to wait until after my master gardening class. My brain can only hold so much at a time and right now it's dripping orgranic gardening... LOL
