Happy long weekend!! Here in Canada, we are celebrating Victoria Day, aka May Two-Four. The weather is finally starting to cooperate and I am hoping to spend the majority of this weekend outdoors! Work is extra busy this time of the year so this long weekend is very, very welcome.
Today is my brother's 11th birthday! Happy birthday Philip, I love you! My mom, brother, and I FaceTimed last night in honour of his birthday-eve and we were reminiscing his birth story. This year, it falls exactly the same way as it did in 2005 -- on a Friday. I was 17 when he was born and I remember it really well. I can't believe he's officially a preteen! We will be celebrating his birthday with a sleepover at my house, some park time, and a trip to one of those jumpy trampoline places.
2008 - age 3
Yesterday morning was a bit rough. I arrived at my work parking lot and started gathering my things to go inside. I took the keys out of the ignition, threw them in my purse and checked the weather on my phone to see how warm it's going to be. With a high of 19, I knew I wouldn't need my coat so I wanted to leave it in the car. It was a struggle to take off while sitting in the driver's seat, so I got out, grabbed my coffee, put it top of the car and took off my coat. At that moment, another car was trying to pull into the parking spot next to me so I shut the door to give them more room. Have you figured out what happens next in this story? If you guessed that I lock my keys, purse, and phone inside the car, you would be correct. After a few seconds of standing frozen, shocked from my own stupidity, I walk into my office carrying nothing but my coffee (priorities!) I called Mike about 1,234 times from my desk phone. No answer. He's in the shower. Eventually I got through and convinced him to bring the spare keys on his way to work. I was mainly concerned that my open purse was in plain sight and I was worried about someone breaking in. Mike didn't laugh, judge, or scorn. He came, no questions asked -- seriously the best. I'm so lucky that he starts work after me and my office is on the way to his work so that he can rescue me in such times of distress. Major husband points!
I was growing H&M online the other day and found the cutest summer dresses! I love wearing casual light dresses in the summer time and all of these would be perfect for date night or girls' night out. Andddd they are all under $50! Win.
Some of my favourite links from from this week:
- Emily's New York post had me reminiscing about our trip there last December. It's one of my absolute favourite cities in the world and I would gladly hop on a plane any day of the week if it was possible. New York is always a good idea, right?
- Did you see Stephanie's One Room Challenge makeover? She redid her living room and the befores and afters are mindblowing. It looks so amazing now -- I can't believe it's the same space!
- Pamela shared this rosé sangria recipe and it sounds like the perfect drink for the long weekend!
See you on Tuesday!
