You shook me all night long

This weekend was all about spending as much time as possible with Jessica before she jumps on a train to Los Angeles tomorrow morning. Saturday, it was side by side mani-pedi's at Pure Nail Bar and then shopping for trek shoes and last minute necessities at Mountain Equipment Co-op.

After a double header of farewell parties on Friday and Saturday, last night with bellies full of spaghetti and meatballs, four exhausted girls sat inside GM Place to watch the Canucks kick some Chicago Blackhawk ass. The boys played a one-goal game down to the wire before coming out on top with a 2-0 victory over the Blackhawks, which propelled them into a tie with the Minnesota Wild at the top of their division. Luongo's shut out earned him the first star of the game. The Canucks may have started the season with a 1-6 home record but more recently, Luongo has backstopped three straight wins for our boys at GM Place.

On Sunday morning, I went for a long walk and ended up spending a small fortune on new cleaning products. I'm becoming so much more domestic as I get older. The Shoppers Drug Mart Life brand has launched a line of environmentally friendly cleaning products. The company touts them as being "fresh, biodegradable, non-toxic and phosphate-free." This excited me very much so I totally stocked up. My friend Danielle's ways have clearly rubbed off on me as I'm much more "Monica Geller" now than I ever have been before. After pilates, I cleaned my apartment from top to bottom with the result being bright, sparkling, clean perfection. I am loving my new apartment so much. I actually wake up in the morning with a big grin on my face upon looking around my very own happy, little home. I couldn't ask for a better building, friendlier neighbours or a more fabulous hood. Being a stone's throw from the beach with a plethora of shops and restaurants to check out is more than a girl could ask for, so I thank my lucky stars every single day.

I managed to watch few minutes of the game while eating at Brew Pub in Squamish last night after our weekend ski trip. I got to say, that slap pass from Salo which resulted the winning goal was a wicked play. They got to use that more often.

just make sure you dont go completely neurotic like Monica. like, maybe mix monica's cleaning skills with pheobe's attitude. because then cleaning will always be fun and warrant singing.

Where do you get your Canucks' tix from?? I'm desperately trying to buy Chris some for Christmas, but with no luck...

Good call Patz, I'll try to keep a good balance...and I'm sure my neighbours will tell you that I love to sing while I clean. :)

Melissa: I know what you mean about tix being hard to come by! My company has corporate seasons tickets which we share, so we all get a turn to go every so often.
P.S. I was watching the Posh reality show yesterday and I totally got sucked in! I thought of you because I know you love her. I'm a converted fan now that I've seen the show. She's so adorable!

Ah, I want to move to a new apartment as soon as I can. Cleaning is good and I think if you live alone u will automatically start cleaning a lot more than u did when u lived with ur family.

Nataludin, thanks for coming by. I appreciate the comment and will check out your blog!:)

Roshan, I think you're very right about that. I lived with a roommate before I moved out on my own, and I think that I just got to the point where I was tired of cleaning up after someone else all the time, when we clearly had different standards for cleanliness...when it's just me, I'm a happy little cleaner. And maybe a little OCD. hehe
