Just another Monday Funday.

-- wake up -- get dressed [new jeans! yay!] -- straighten hair -- make oatmeal -- attempt to eat oatmeal -- too hot -- wait -- eat oatmeal -- watch love it or list it -- realize i'm going to miss my bus -- brush teeth -- put on jacket -- put on shoes -- leave -- walk halfway down the block -- realize i forgot my lunch -- walk halfway back -- struggle to take off jacket and purse -- grab lunch -- basically sprint to bus stop -- sprint across road to avoid a cement truck -- make the bus -- get off the bus -- get to work 10 minutes late. oops.
so then i worked and it was all fine and dandy and hunky dory. then we found out there was a tornado warning/watch for the edmonton area, so i was pretty stressed out. nothing happened until i got home, and even then it was just rainy. super super rainy. but i can handle rain. theeeeeen i got a real good craving for a cupcake, and i knew that a blogger i follow (Kylee) posts yummy treats on her blog all the time. so i went a-stalking. and found glazed donut muffins. commence drooling.
