Day 7: Rainbow Chip Icing

Today my socks look like Betty Crocker's Rainbow Chip Icing, which is probably one of my favourites and, I can't even lie, the reason I bought the socks in the first place. I bought these last night when I bought my skinny jeans. The socks were only $1.10!

I had a fabulous day while wearing socks displaying my favourite icing!

First thing this morning I thought to myself, what the heck, I'm going to try on those pants that haven't fit me in over a year. Normally, I would not put myself through the shame, discomfort, and hurt feelings of trying something like this. However, I know I've been losing weight because the scale and my baggy pants tell me so. So, I pulled on these jeans and...they fit! As in, the button and zipper do up! And not just that - they are comfortable! The scale has been telling me that I lost 20 pounds, but I really didn't feel it until that moment.

While at school today I got to have lunch with a friend that I haven't spent time with in over a month, and ran into another friend that I also haven't spent time with in a while! It was so nice to catch up with these two ladies, if even for a few minutes.

In my co-op class we had an employer panel and they were talking about different summer employment possibilities. I was excited because The Mustard Seed was there and I thought it would be such an awesome place to do a summer placement. Then my summer placement would be not just about me, but about helping others while learning Human Resources. Amazing!

The last thing I did today before coming home was take one of the boys I nanny to hockey practice. I stayed and watched this time so I could take him home once it was over. Oh my gosh those buildings are cold. I get that because they need to keep the ice cold. That's fine. But why in these places do they have benches that only giants could comfortably sit on with no back support? Who invented this idea? Maybe the tall benches are there to be closer to the heater, but could I at least get a step up? And who wants to sit somewhere with no back support for an hour and 15 minutes? Not me. My last problem with the place is that they do not have free wireless internet. If moms, dads, and nannies have to take the kids there, the least they could do is provide free internet so we can do something other than watch kids skate around in circles! For our sanity...? Pretty please?

Lastly, a message to any men that work at a hockey rink: Please take me on a Zamboni. It's one of my goals in life to ride on one. Help me realize this dream!

I am now off to work on a birthday present for my Stepmom! Hope you are all having a great day!



  1. i didnt know you were a nanny! i can relate to the whole hockey thing... i have to take my "kids" there too and its freezing!! sometimes i just sit in the car and listen to music... haha.

  2. I am so proud of you. I love you AND your hot ass.

  3. Congratulations on losing 20 lbs and fitting into those jeans! I am so happy for you!!!

    If you get to ride a zamboni and I don't, I am going to be so upset! See if you can bring a friend and I will fly up there and join you:) And I'll even bring a second suitcase full of socks in exchange for the favour!!!!

  4. Funny! I always used to say I wanted to marry a man who drives a zamboni.....sad to say, Brian hasn't ever done so, so if you find that man to take you on your ride can you ask him to teach my hubby too? What is it with us girls and zambonis?
