beKause of the drama, i’m talKing about the Kardashians

Yep, two days before I leave for a week-long vacation to the Dominican and I am bogged down with personal and professional drama.  The personal drama is whatever to me because it’s idiotic, but the professional drama, is REALLY starting to get to me.  So what am I going to do…I’m gonna talk about the Kardashians.

A year ago you NEVER would have had me write a single word about these women.  I never cared about them and had no idea who they were.  Lately (because I get E) I have watched the whole Kim and Kris wedding drama and lately have gotten into the older Kourtney and Khloe take Miami *I’m in Miami bitch*.  I have a few opinions about these women and because I am opinionated and bored by my own drama, I am going to talk about these women.

Kourtney, the oldest of the sisters. She is a beautiful, successful woman with a man by her side, a son she adores and a bun in the oven.  Now, I am not sure how much actual work she does (I don’t count appearances or photo shoots cause really…I just don’t), but she truly loves her family and her friends and this is clearly witnessed on all of her shows.  My one grip with her – she sleeps in the same bed as her son and not her boyfriend (common-law husband Scott).  This is weird to me.  I have other friends who sleep in bed with their children, quite a few actually and it’s just weird.  Once in a while okay, but I believe women really need to nurture their relationship with their significant other and how can they do that with a toddler or young child in between them or if he is not even in the same bed!!!!  Scott doesn’t like this arrangement but it seems like what ever the Kardashian sisters want, the Kardashian sisters get. Since she is pregnant again, clearly they do spend SOME time together, but I hope for her sake she can ensure her relationship with Scott is secure and protected.

Now Kim…everyone wants to put a hate on for her…did Kris not propose to her, did Kris not say I DO?  Kim and Kris have fought since the beginning of this proposal from what I saw and if Kris thought Kim treated him poorly then Kris should have man’d up and kicked her ass to the curb.  But no, he liked the idea of being in the Kardashian clan just as much as she liked the idea of being married and having everyone fawn all over her.  I don’t dislike Kim, she isn’t my favourite sister and I do not by any means enjoy watching her marriage fall apart on national tv, but being a reality star was her decision so she’s getting what she gets paid for – publicity, negative publicity unfortunately.  She’s a beautiful woman with a good sense for business and I hope she rebounds out of this drama soon. 

Now on to my favourite sister.  Khloe, not only do I love her name (because one day I will name my daughter Chloe) but I think she is the most real sister of the three.  She is beautiful, devoted to her family and husband and hilarious.  She is crude and honest and I love that about her.  She would be the one I would be friends with.  Reminds me of my girl E (the Doberman owner).  Khloe loves Lamar so much she followed him to Dallas when he got traded.  What did Kim say about Milwaukee where Kris was playing “that she wouldn’t move there”.  I hope Khloe has a great life, she yearns for a child so much and I think she would be ecstatic to have one…good luck Khloe!

Oh Buffalo Wild Wings has come to Canada!!

I am so happy I could cry, okay maybe not cry, but internally there is a lot of jumping for joy.  Here is my story: back in 2008 my friend Kat went to school in Moon Township P.A.  Me and the ex were friends with her and her bf at the time so we went and visited her there.  They took us out to dinner at this amazing wing place (Buffalo Wild Wings).  We got take out and ordered some sauces to go.  The wings were So. Freaken. Good.  We loved it there.  Every time we went to P.A to see her or to shop we would stop by BWW and grab wings and sauce! 

In Nov 2011 when I went with sister-in-law and crazy cat lady to Grove City for Black Friday Shopping, I took them to BWW and we ate in and ate so much food there was an embarrassing gas issue on the way back to the hotel.  (I know too much info – but really, the food is THAT good). 

Well last night, the ex finally had a day off work, and since I am leaving for the Dominican in 3 more days (YAY!) we decided to have dinner.  I told him to choose the restaurant cause really, I choose Makimono every time I am told to choose where to eat.  We drove and drove and drove and finally I realized we were in Oshawa.  What the heck does Oshawa have that Scarborough doesn’t??  A BUFFALO WILD WINGS!

I did NOT know this.  It’s pretty much exactly the same as the one I have tried in the states.  From the sports bar theme to the yellow and black uniforms to the wings in paper dishes.  Fantastic.  It’s located at 800 West King Street in Oshawa.  I mean it’s possible that Wild Wings is just as good, but I have never been there so I don’t know.  But I do enjoy Buffalo Wild Wings.  The service was great, our waitress was sweet (pretty blond wearing a breast cancer bracelet that said “I love Boobies”), and there was tonnes of tv’s playing the leafs game – we won, and a couple of different Basketball games.  I can totally see me there in the summer, on the patio eating wings and drinking margaritas (I don’t like beer – sorry). 

I hope you all have a great HUMP day!

Has it really been two weeks!

Two weeks ago today K, T and me went BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING in Grove City PA.  Driving 4+ hours with two of my favourite ladies and then shopping from 10 pm to 5:30 am is AWESOME.

I learned my  sister-in-law can keep up with us shopoholics *yes K I mean you too*.  We shopped till we dropped literally, then we woke up and started shopping all over again.  Three full days of driving and shopping and my sis was still in great spirits wants to do it all over again next year!  She found great deals – as we all did – and the only down side was, I couldn’t shop for her because she was with me!!! 

I also learned that buying an inflatable mattress that has a foot pump can be a good investment.  When I originally booked the hotel it was just me and sis going.  K agreed to come after I booked so I didn’t have  a bed for her.  I decided instead of changing hotels to a bigger room (ours was 5 minutes from the outlet) that I would get a mattress and she could sleep on that.  The foot pump – once we figured out how it worked – was actually really easy and pretty comfortable all things considering.  Sis ended up sleeping on the mattress but she was fine with it. 

Food – American food – is evil.  Evil in the best way possible.  We ate at the Eat n Park everyday for breakfast.  The sausage, caramel apple strudel pancakes, hot chocolate, coffee etc was all yummy!  K and sis loved breakfast too.  And boy it was cheap!  Nothing better than cheap, yummy breakfast!  For dinner we had Subway subs at the Kwik Fill gas station Thursday night – everywhere is closed on Thanksgiving!!!!  But even still, it was edible and satisfying!  But Friday night, I gave the girls a treat.  I took them into Pittsburgh PA for more shopping and dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings.  We had everything that is NOT weight watchers acceptable!  LOL…and loved every minute of it!  We actually had left overs there was so much food!

***and just so you know I still lost 2.1 pds that week!***

Driving home was hard, I am not going to lie.  The ex used to drive these long trips and this was my first one.  Coming home I was so exhausted I could feel my eyes closing – thank GOD traffic was not busy.  I woke up completely when we got to the border and was grateful that we only had a little bit to pay in taxes.  When we got home and I was able to drop K and T home, I came back to my home, in my bed, looked at all the bags, turned the lights off and went to bed.  Bags of presents and shoes and clothes for me is not something I wanted any part of that night!

I hope you all get to enjoy Black Friday at some point in your life, it is something you won’t want to miss!  See you next year Grove!
