Happy Friday and Welcome to the *NEW* ‘What’s up, Weekend’ Friday Link Up! We are three weeks into the launch of the newly revamped link-up that Charlotte, from My Pixie Blog, Christina from The Brave Wanderer. and I are hosting, called ‘What’s up, Weekend?’ For the last two years, Fridays have always been (and always will be) a place where I reflect on the happy and grateful things in our lives, but more specifically from the last week. To expand upon that, this link-up is now open to any post that relates to happy things, happy lists, gratitude lists, faves of the […]
Oooh look at me go, I almost had all of you, right? Wrong, I’m just being a dork. Don’t mind me. A couple of months ago, both Jeff and I signed up through my workplace to climb the CN Tower in support of the United Way. Never having climbed before and hearing others past stories made me want to climb, too. Jeff in his old man state (lol) had to bail on me as he hurt his knee a couple of weeks ago and climbing 144 stories was decidedly not going to make matters better for him and I’m glad […]
Holy bananas, did it ever rain on Saturday!! It seems like it’s an annual tradition that when these tournaments (action shooting – think scenarios with targets) are planned, the day that all the safety officers compete is the day where the sky just opens up and Mother Nature just pours down on us. And it is usually followed up with a beautiful, sunny day and this year certainly did not disappoint. Sunday was just gorgeous and perfect weather conditions for the other 67 or so competitors that shot in the tournament. I’m not a safety officer but I was helping organize […]
Does anyone else think it’s insane that we’re into the month of August? Where the hell did July go, people? My weekend was good, LONG (which was nice) but I didn’t document too much, as I’m trying to be more purposeful and living in the moment. The theme of this weekend was indulging and eating too much crap. So we’re getting back to basics now, Jeff and I both feel like shit and bloated to all hell. You get what you deserve, what else can I say? Don’t you just love the cross over anniversary present I was gifted while […]
Our bags are nearly ready to go and now we’re just waiting for 9:25 a.m. Wednesday to roll around so we can start this beautiful adventure down in Barbados. But first, I’ll recap the Canada Day Long Weekend Fun. Friday was Canada Day, our Nation’s birthday. We didn’t do too much that day or evening, but we did go biking that evening just in time for the fireworks display and it was pretty awesome. I think this year took the cake, it was a really nice display and not too long. We ended up biking that evening only a short […]
It’s that awesome day of the week again – you got it, Monday, Monday. Yeah, so like every Monday, I attempted to write this post but that didn’t happen. Monday got away from me. So it’s Tuesday…. moving along… This past weekend was spent up north. I actually booked off Friday from work, so I ended up taking off a tad early on Thursday and Jeff and I took off 3 hours north-bound to visit his parents and also shoot this weekend’s action shooting match.
