Finally Friday

July 11, 2014

Friday has finally come! Put your hands up in the air like you just don't care!
I have definitely been looking forward to this weekend. My to-do list this week has been a mile long and it will be nice to have a bit of a break.

While I sit here enjoying the lovely summer sun during my lunch, I thought I'd share some neat things I saw this week on the interwebs.

Want to see what fireworks look like when you fly right through them?  Let me tell you, it's pretty darn awesome

Have you ever wondered why we name our stuff?

I just learned yesterday that loaded smashed potatoes is a thing. You can bet your pretty little faces I'm going to try and make these this weekend

This made me crack up as well as make me feel old. Thanks for that internet.

It looks like you can now colour your own wallpaper. If anyone knows me, they know I have a creative brain and LOVE colour. This product is like my dream come true and will be going in my future childs room for sure.

Have an awesome weekend!

Biking to work

July 7, 2014

Ever since I moved, I have vowed that I am going to try and bike to work as much as possible. Obviously, there are some days I can't because of my schedule and you definitely won't catch me on a bike in the winter. But with the short summer we have, I must try and make the most of it.

With that, lets move on to the present day. Last Friday I attempted to ride my bike to work for the first time since moving. I got up early, knew what my route was going to be and was jumped to be fit as well as enjoy the morning on the trails. Well, I get about 7 houses down from my place, and I then have a wipeout which tears up on left foot and twists my ankle, as well as damaging my bike. Fun times. 

Without showing you a disgusting picture of my foot, it was not a good morning. It was one of those days where not only one thing goes wrong, about ten 15 things go wrong.

But I digress, my bike has been fixed by my handy man and I'm going to try it again tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get farther than down the block this time.

There are so many benefits to bike riding to work or school. I can already picture the amount of money I'll be saving plus getting back in shape, which is desperately needed.

Fingers crossed for me! 
I'd like to not repeat last Friday, or else I will despise bikes forever! Haha

Good morning, friends! 
Above is a photo I took during our Canada Day fireworks and while our High Level Bridge was being lit up with lights. It was a cool moment and I'm glad I got to see it happen.

I hope you have a fantastic day today! Keep smiling!
