Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I will admit this is a scheduled post; I’m probably off having dinner with Taylor right now at La Fondue in Saratoga. It’s really good, but fondue’s not really my thing. I’ll share what I bought Taylor for Valentine’s this year!

Valentine's Day presents

So I got him the Fiasco booklet and two different colored sets of 12 dice (d6). He has a lot of d6’s already, I think, but I didn’t know how to ask if they’re all the same color, so I just got him more. Whatever. I also got him Batman cufflinks because we’ve been playing the Arkham series together. I was actually going to get Arkham Origins or Knight but I couldn’t tell if he already had it or not… Lastly, I got him some cookies and cream candies because it’s his favourite candy. :)

Finally, here’s the card I got him: I Love Your Stupid Face by Emily McDowell :)

I didn’t get him anything last year so I hope this makes up for it!

Cute Wednesday: Cows!

On our podcast episode this week, we talk about animals, and I posted a picture of a Scottish Highland Cattle; cows are one of my favourite animals so this post is dedicated to cows!

Here’s a Scottish Highland Cattle; they are a type of cow that started out in Scotland, and just the cutest!

Next is an adorable picture I saw on Cute Overload, cows in coats! So cute!
Cows in Coats!

And here’s a picture my boyfriend shared with me, a cow that looks like his hair was blowdried and is all fluffy!
Fluffy!

My love of cows started with Harvest Moon; with this cute cow:

And my love of cows has only been enhanced over the years. Does that make me a weirdo? Probably.

Long week behind me

This week has been a stupidly long week.

My great-uncle, Judson Chu, passed away on in his sleep between Sunday night and Monday morning. He was a US Vetern, and he, along with my great-aunt (who passed away in mid-2013), was the main reason my family was able to immigrate from China. For this I am eternally grateful. He was close to his 92nd birthday, so he lived a good, long life; we will just have to celebrate his life for him this weekend.

Because his funeral is this weekend, I cancelled my plans which was stressful because I wanted to sell the tickets I had, but eventually I gave up and stopped caring about the money.

I also just found out my trainer, who I’ve been with since mid-2011, is moving onto a better job and while I’m happy for him, I feel like I’m losing a good friend.

A good friend of mine told me a harrowing story about one of her friends and I don’t want to post any details, but it reminded me of my dear brother; I haven’t had time to visit him as often as I would like.

On top of all that, work has been so busy this week; my coworker and I have been working on templates and color stories all week.

I feel like I could sleep for all of next week and still not have enough rest.

I’m going to end on a good note though, so I’ll add that I got lunch with my boyfriend today and I treated myself to some cotton candy limeade!

Cotton Candy!

Doesn’t cotton candy just make everything better?
