I spent the day shopping for shoes.  How much fun is that!  We're going on vacation in a bit.  I can't wait to get out of this cold cold Canadian winter.  This winter has been especially cold.  It really reminds me of the winters from when I was a kid.  I guess we've been spoiled the last few year.  This year though 'Old Man Winter" is out and about with a vengeance.  We've had a terrible ice storm just before Christmas where we lost power for a couple of days.  Luckily it came back on the morning of Christmas Eve so we were able to have a normal and pretty great Christmas.  Since then though it's been cold - bitterly cold - most days and more snow than I care to think about.  It's been a tradition for us to go away for Valentines Day though (don't worry I'm not announcing to the world my house will be empty - there will be people at home while we're away).  This year it's Jamaica and I can't wait.  I hear the beach at our resort is lovely 10 days of beautiful sunny warm weather sounds absolutely wonderful.

There are lots of things to do to get ready though.  It always seems I need to buy new bathing suits each time.  Once can never have too many bathing suites - I think it's the optimist in me hoping that the next one I buy will miraculously make me look like the 20 year old I used to be (more years ago than I care to admit here).  Today I decided I need resort shoes/sandals.  It's not that easy finding summer shoes in February in the middle of a snow storm.  Luckily I did manage to find a couple of pretty cool shoes.  One even has a fair bit of bling - now that's resort wear!

Next weekend I'd better get that pedicure done!!!

OK for now I'd better get back to listing some buttons and hopefully having a few button sales to pay for my purchases :)

Until next time......................
