Instead of blogging.
Hard to remember it’s the vacation months, of account of my frozen fingers typing this wtf.
TTYT, till then, here I am driving.
New clothes! I’m no longer “sporty mercenary,” now I’m “business casual.”
Last time I had new clothes was January 2014 #BenefitOfBlogging
And that’s the irony of a blog right there – I’ve travelled the world while staying in 5-star places, tested over $12 million in cars, but couldn’t afford new sneakers.
Casie became my stylist. When I got hired she drove up to celebrate, arriving with beers and a bag of new clothes. Now that’s a BFF eh!
She advised me on how to build a “capsule wardrobe,” and gave me a style she calls “monochromatic minimalist.”
In the very first week, I legitiamlly showed up to work in… jogging pants HAHA.
Add that to the blog tag – Jogging Pants (27)
Probably shouldn’t find that tag’s size so amusing.
Here we go deleting the World’sOldestTomboy.com
Exact total = $219.70
Counting it took my neighbours and I hours. We found that blue guy in the bills. Separating cash in glasses is clever eh.
I was short about $40.
Neighbours starting dumping their savings into the effort, Brian showed up with a massive drawer, we ended up $2.30 over target.
It’s the MasterChef S380 Propane BBQ. 3 burners, 46,000 BTUs, on sale $189.99 here
The neighbours helped a lot with this purchase.
Another drove me in his F150 to pick it up. And then put it together for me… so BBQs come in pieces?
During which I announced to every passerby, “look, I’m buying a BBQ with only Canadian Tire money.”
Inaugural meat from The Meat Merchant of course.
An ole’ fashioned butcher serving organic, local meat and ingredients that are nitrite and preservative-free.
My neighbour, “wait Keri, you should document this moment, give me your phone and show the beer more, it’s part of BBQing.”
Brian’s first iPhone photo!
I tried. Honestly, I tried.
I listened to instructions.
Know what though, everyone was kind and ate them anyway.
Concluding with some BBQ-catalog-posing.
