Well then! I honestly didn’t mean to take a hiatus from blogging, but here I am nearly three weeks from my last post.
A high of the week was our family participating the the Blackwell Dairy Fun Run! For those unaware, it’s a road race that takes place in a super hilly neighbourhood of Kamloops, with a 3 and 15km course. It was gorgeous and sunny, but that made the race hot and tough – not really “fun” at all. Isla and I trudged through the 3km race while Kyle harnessed his inner Beast Mode and completed the 15km. Of course, it’s all about the ice cream at the end, which Isla thoroughly enjoyed!
On Wednesday my mom also treated me to a Paint Nite, which was my birthday present from her! Our paintings turned out to look nothing like the demo, but we still had fun and I’d definitely do it again!
A low of the week was my allergies flaring up. The outdoors HATES ME and I even got a nose bleed just because my allergy meds dry out my sinuses so badly.
An internet find I loved was the Red Nose Day Actually short. Love Actually is probably my favourite Christmas movie, so being able to “catch up” with the characters from the movie was pretty awesome. And really – they haven’t changed much, appearance-wise, except for maybe Andrew Lincoln ;)
The best money I spent was $15 at Costco on some capris for Isla.
My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was going to the splash park with them on Wednesday. We were meeting our friends from dance and while it wasn’t the warmest of days, they were both still hell-bent on putting on their bathing suits and getting wet.
A song that has been stuck in my head is the song that plays at the end of the movie “Sing.” I can’t remember what it’s called, but dangit, it’s catchy!
My meals of the week were meatballs, chicken, meatloaf, butter chicken, and tonight, burgers!
My plans for the weekend are a barbecue tonight with friends, Isla’s dance recital Saturday and Sunday, and slo-pitch Sunday evening!
How have you been??
