Top o'the mornin' to you!

We started celebrating last night with an evening at the curling club, drinking Kilkenny, Irish coffee (and Labatt 50, it has a green label!) and music courtesy of Salty Dog.

And today? Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Baby news!

You'll have to excuse me if I get overly emotional in this post, I've been up at 5 o'clock the past 2 mornings and at work for 6:30...

So the big news is Tim has become an uncle!

And since no one else has said it (or almost), well, I will - I have become an aunt!

I can assume that title, right? Hey, after all, for all intents and purposes, I figure if I hadn't been married before, Tim and I would probably have gotten hitched by now, so there, I'm an aunt!

Catherine and Eric's bundle of joy arrived on Tuesday afternoon. That's Uncle Tim there holding Vanessa Anne. She is absolutely adorable. No bias here whatsoever! But what else would you expect from such great parents?!

It was well worth being stuck in traffic for a good hour and a half to get to the South Shore to go visit them at the hospital last night. Anyhow, my bad for leaving the West Island at 5 o'clock on a foggy and rainy evening.

Today's traffic escapade was only about 15 minutes long on the 40 just before Decarie to about Rockland. Yes, I do usually use public transportation to and fro work but I can't get to work for 6:30 by bus so Tim has been good enough to let me use the car and he gets my bus pass in exchange.

But I did go pick him up at work on both days. And today I took a side trip to L'Équipeur to see if they had the boots I wanted. And can you believe it, lo and behold, they did. In my size. And they fit. And they were regular $79.99, reduced to $39.99, further reduced to $29.99, less our 20% discount family card (Tim's cousin used to work there), less $10 on a purchase of $50 or more (I also bought socks, lots of socks!) So a true score!

What a week!

Boots, socks AND a niece! :P

Good Intentions

What better way to spend a snowy Friday evening but to meet up with your significant other and a few of his old co-workers for a "6 à 8."
On my way to McCarold's on Côte-des-Neiges, I figured 1/2 a pint would be my intake for the evening. Didn't happen.
Here's the catch...I ordered a Chouffe.
La Chouffe is an 8% blond, not so much a problem.
But little did I know that La Chouffe comes in 750 ml bottles.

Tee hee hee, and we had a pleasant evening!

Not as pleasant, I'm sure, as Steve who had at least 5 Maudites and a mistakenly ordered scotch which we didn't quite catch the name of but tasted like very bad disinfectant.

The pub is kewl and easily accessible by Metro. We will have to make a return trip there soon.
