Finish this

I was walking Harley last night and thinking of things that I could post about. My life isn't very entertaining or exciting lately, so I've got nothing juicy to share with you. So,  I came up with this post idea. I'll give you a sentence and you fill in the blanks. Sounds pretty easy right?

When I grow up, I want to be _______________________________.

The only thing better than sex is ______________________________.

If money was no object, I would go out and buy ____________________________ tomorrow.

The one thing I wish my husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/wife did more often for me is _____________________________.

The first thing I did this morning was _____________________________.

I would never, ever __________________________ in my lifetime.

Let's hear your answers!

A little bit of happy on Wednesday

It's been rainy and very grey here for the past couple of days that I need to think of some happy things!

  • coming home to a delicious dinner made by Mr.D. He tried a new recipe for pork tenderloin and it was so good! I'll have to see if I can get the recipe from him to share
  • getting back into The Following. We stopped watching it for a while and are slowly getting caught up
  • yummy fries from Chicken on the Way
  • cuddling up on the couch with a blanket on these rainy nights
  • ordering stuff online and seeing it's been shipped already

Tell me: what is something happy about your week?

Highlights of the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! This weekend went by really quickly. Let's see what we were up to:

friday// we picked my one aunt up from the airport and went out for dinner. My second aunt didn't fly in until 9:30pm, so by the time we picked her up, it was after 10pm when we got home.

saturday// in the morning, we took Harley for a walk and stopped at a couple garage sales. Our community was having an annual community garage sale, so lots of people out and about! After our walk, we took them out for lunch to the Lazy Loaf and Kettle. So good! In the afternoon, they were attending a family wedding, so I dropped them off at the ceremony and then headed home. Mr.D and I picked up vietnamese take out and watched Running Scared. It's an older movie (from 2006 I think), but it was good. A little violent for me though. Later that night, we picked them up from the wedding.

sunday// we made breakfast at home in the morning and then I took my aunt's to the airport just before lunch as they were heading home. In the afternoon, I took a super long nap {dang headache that just wouldn't leave from Saturday!} and then walked Harley and made dinner.

It was a busy weekend, but I enjoyed seeing and getting to spend time with my aunts (one lives in BC and one lives in ON, so I don't see them alot). 

Tell me: how was your weekend?

A little bit of happy on Wednesday

Ah Wednesday. The middle of the week and getting so close to the weekend. Let's talk about what I'm happy about/for today:

  • the sun is shining...so far {June is typically pretty rainy in Calgary}
  • the new season of Orange is the New Black
  • that my aunts are coming to visit for the weekend
  • accidental sleep-ins on Tuesday morning even though it left me rushing to get to work on time
  • delicious dinners made by Mr.D
  • comfy maxi skirts
  • good hair days
  • these two:

Tell me: what are you happy about today?

Highlights of the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! We had a pretty low key weekend, which was perfect. Let's see what we were up to:

  • Mr.D took off a motorbike ride, so I took Harley for a run/walk and then went to the mall. Didn't have much luck though
  • Saturday morning we were both up bright and early at 6:30am, so we started watching season two of Orange is the New Black. Mr.D went mountain biking with Justin, so I did a bunch of cleaning/house chores and then took Harley for a walk. That night, we headed to Alison and Justin's house for dinner. My belly is still stuffed from the delicious dinner ;)
  •  Sunday included breakfast with a friend, a run with Harley and reading my book in the sunshine

Overall, a great weekend but lacking in pictures! I need to get better at taking more pictures.

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Five on Friday

one// did anyone else think that this week felt super long for some reason? So glad it's Friday.

two// do you know what I hadn't had in a really long time and is good? Regular Ruffle chips and heluva good chip dip. So good.

three// I just finished reading The Good Soldiers and Thank You For Your Service. Both are heavier reads, but I found them really interesting. I can't imagine what those soldiers went through during those fifteen months and then returning home to the States. 

four// I don't know why it drives me crazy, but I hate it when people shorten words unnecessarily on Twitter. Makes me bonkers!

five// Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Belated weekend recap

Gah, sorry for the delayed post and silence! I got home late on Sunday night and just haven't felt like sitting down to blog since then.

On Thursday afternoon, I flew home to Ontario. My mom picked me up at the airport and we went for dinner with a friend. It was nice to catch up with both of them!

On Friday, we got up and drove up to the beach (also known as Grand Bend) as my mom had a few things to do there. We had to make a pit stop at Target as I didn't pack any shorts, and it was going to be gorgeous all weekend! Not sure what I was thinking when I packed my bag. We had lunch and went for a walk on the beach before we headed back home. It was a gorgeous day at the beach! Later that night, we went to my future SIL's house for dinner with her bridal party and mom. It was a casual night, but fun.

Saturday was wedding day! In the morning, I took my mom to get our hair and make up done for a mother's day gift. It was really nice having someone do my make up as I am terrible at it! After getting all dolled up, we headed downtown Kitchener to grab some lunch before the ceremony. My brother and his now wife had a simple, but lovely wedding. The ceremony was at city hall and then dinner was at a local restaurant. It was a wonderful day!

Just married!

Sunday was a pretty relaxed day. I went for breakfast with my dad, his wife and my younger brother in the morning. In the afternoon, we dropped by to see my brother's place and then had dinner at my mom's. Then it was time for the airport again :(

A very quick, but fun trip home. If only it didn't have to go by so quickly!
