Hey guys! Day 2 is coming to a close. We didn’t get out and about til about 12, but have been non stop since. We went to Little Italy and had lunch. Afterwards, we went to thee farmer’s market and they had the biggest pumpkin I’ve ever seen!
It took us forever to find the entrance to the Mont Royal park! We wanted to see it so bad, but it took like an hour of hopping on different metros. It was so worth it though. I assume this is exactly how Fall is supposed to look like. We had a great view over the city. We didn’t have enough time to go to the top, but it still rocked.
When we got pack to our area(where the apartment is), we went to the police headquarters. My brother is in law enforcement and he likes to get different patches from different city’s police. The guy was super nice and handed his patches right over.
GIFT SHOPPING TIME. Oh the money I spent… Oh well, when will I ever be back here? Totally worth it.
We called it an early evening to pack. This trip has been so much fun. I’m super glad I was able to do this. Now it is time for the pictures!
We have arrived. So we got in last night right before midnight. So I’m counting today as day 1. We had breakfast at this really great place called Eggspectation. I totally recommend going there. It’s in Old Montreal.
Then we went to this beautiful building called Notre-Dame Basilica. It is an old church(pics below) that was built in the 1800’s. I’m not a religious person, but I could spend all day admiring that thing.
After we came back to our Airbnb(which we got from staysbypaige, look her up it’s an awesome little apartment) and changed, because damn it is cold here compared to our Oklahoma 80 degree weather!
At 2, we had our tattoo appointment. We went to Artease. It was a mainly lady shop and our tattoo artist @kesselrun was so fun and cool. I got a ghost and moon and Andrea got an airplane.
When we left the shop, we hopped on the Metro and took to Underground City. It is this 5 story shopping mall. We shopped alil and I bought a coat(I didn’t realize how cold it was going to be).
We got back to the apartment about 7 and decided to stay in to get away from the cold. We order pizza and here I am, eating and typing. So, enjoy the photos!

I’m going to start making a post at the end of every month saying what I am obsessed with this month.
Music: Side by Side – Ariana Grande (I sing this obnoxiously loud all the time.)
Food: Buffalo pretzel chips by Snack Factory. Yum!
Shows: obviously Luke Cage. It just came out so I had to watch it. Super awesome. You’d think they have too much marvel stuff out but it worked.
Reading: You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. Hilarious for starters. Super motivating which I don’t have at all. I was surprised. If you think you’re having a life crisis or don’t know what to do with yourself. Check it out!
Crocheting: That huge blanket I posted.
I also am working on a project. I’m keeping it on the DL for now, but will be posting about it within the next week! Keep an eye out.
10 balls of yarn later and I’m over half way done with this blanket! Dang. Right? I have 6 balls left. This is a birthday present for my dad. Unfortunately, it will become a Christmas present. Oops! I’ll post the finished project.
I go back to work for my first full week back tomorrow. I’m anxious just because 12 hour shifts are hard. I leave for Montreal in like 5 days and I’m mostly packed, so I’m ahead. My friend and I are getting tattoos while we’re there! I’ll post pictures of them!
Btw, I dyed my hair orange.
I also planted baby carrots and their starting to sprout! Now the main thing is to be able to keep them alive until I repot them!
I’m also crocheting this huge blanket. Pictures and updates to come!
It has been awhile since my last blog post. I can only blame a small amount of why on circumstance. I was hospitalized from Oct 1st off and on til Oct. 14th. I was there because of my depression. My medication quit working on me. Surprise. Surprise. It sucks, but it happens occasionally. My stay was really hard. I was very homesick the whole time. Being home in my bed was the only thing I wanted, but I knew it would not improve anything. The doctor changed my medications and thankfully I feel much better.
I read this book while I was in called “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero. I totally recommend it to anyone struggling with depression or anything relating to not knowing what to do with their life or just not being happy with it. It was such a good read. It finally helped me realize that I have the tools to better my life.
I have always thought that Depression was going to rule my life, however with the right help and medication I am positive that I can changed who I am and make this life better for myself. Again check the damn book out. It’s some good stuff.
