TGIF v.53

A high of the week was the wonderful weather we’ve been having! While it’s supposed to cool off today, the girls and I have been taking advantage of the heat and heading to the splash park and pool to cool down. The fresh air has been wonderful for them as well, so I have no complaints!

A low of the week was Campbell eating something in the backyard and he’s been hacking and gagging trying to cough it up for the past two days. It’s gross to listen to but I’m certain it’s nothing serious as he’s eating and drinking normally.

Also, our power went out for 6 hours Sunday night and the anxiety of wondering when it would come back on made me have the worst sleep ever.

An internet find I loved was Walk off the Earth’s acoustic version of Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You.” Their work is always amazing and this project did not disappoint! Video below. You’re welcome.

The best money I spent was on a new e-book. I just finished reading The Hate U Give (review goes up on Monday) so I decided to tackle something lighter and read When Life Gives You Lululemons. (Has anyone else read this one? Love it? Hate it?)

My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was Isla “passing” her eye exam with flying colours! Our optometrist said her eyesight is excellent and she has no issues whatsoever with her sight, and Kyle and I couldn’t be happier!

A song that has been stuck in my head is “Baby Shark.” It’s silly and ridiculous and SO DANG CATCHY I CAN’T STAND IT.

My notable meals of the week were probably the Greek potatoes I made Wednesday for dinner. I’ve been hankering for them for a while now so I decided to brave the oven being on in the summer (thank goodness for air conditioning) and make them!

My plans for the weekend are resting up for the Kamloops Marathon on Sunday! It will be a family affair as Isla’s running the 3km distance, I’m doing the 8km, Kyle’s tackling the half-marathon, and Kyle’s stepdad will be shooting for a Boston Marathon qualifying time for the full marathon. Wish us luck!!

What are your weekend plans?
