yesterday was a wonderful day in toronto and we spent it at canada's wonderland which is only the most fucking awesome place ever. just ask kayla - she always loses her shizz when we tell her we're going to go. beautiful spring weather - a lovely 19 degrees with plenty of sunshine and a gentle breeze - complimented a most awesome opening day at wonderland. armed with our season's passes, we zipped passed the massive line-ups of people waiting to pick up their passes (tsk, tsk! those peeps should have planned ahead and had them mailed to them) and got into the park 30mins earlier.
there was a new dinosaur adventure/exhibit that kayla was excited about. basically, they built all of these robotic, huge, life-size dinosaurs that move, roar and and look pretty fucking scary that i was convinced it would give kayla nightmares. on top of the extra $5 per person admission, we paid an extra $1 to see a 3D movie about dinosaurs (which she loved). this girl has got some serious balls of steel -- most kids in the theater were already screaming and freaking out when the lights dimmed but all you could hear from kayla was "WHERE ARE THE DINOSAURS? I CAN'T SEE THEM!"
the dino exhibit had a little "archaeological site" where kiddies can "dig" for dinosaur bones. kayla loved it... but she was more into throwing the sand around than pretending she was digging for bones: "mommy, these things are in the way!"
then we stopped off for icecream (not funnel cake booo!) and kayla eagerly lapped it up while mommy and daddy sat by drooling and staring.
every sunday, i have a week-ending ritual and it's all about me. i take sunday evening to pamper myself while hubs is putting kayla to bed because i need to get ready for the shitty week at work so i do whatever i can to relax and primp.
this pampering can be anything from coloring my hair to hide those grays (fuck you, grays!) to curling my hair if i feel like having wavy hair or doing my nails but i always - always - prep my skin. after a long week of work bullshit and sweating like a mofo during my workouts, i slather luxurious products onto my skin and let the spa-like scents take me away.
this nail color never fails to make me feel and look badass. it even has an awesome name: u never go back. heh.
what do you do to prepare for the upcoming week?
