1. My parents were here all week.

2. We saw baby lion cubs at the zoo, and all sorts of other animals.

3. Actually went out on a date night with Dan. We had dinner and dessert and even saw a movie.

4. IKEA has started selling their marzipan treats again. I may have eaten a whole tray of them over the weekend.

5. Went back to a PFM for the first time in nearly 2 weeks, it was fun to skate with that group again.

What was the hilight of your week? Or just something that made you smile?

Much thanks to Ann for the inspiration.

Hilights of the week- April 21st

Filed under: Derby,Gratitude,Hilights,Kids — by Alison @ 5:13 pm

Last Monday, it just didn’t seem right to write about my highlights. Hopefully, this week will be less tumultuous one over all.

1. My parents are here visiting for the week.

2. Scrimmaged last week against and with some of my favourite blockers.

3. I’m really enjoying the Rat Lab practices and watching scrimmages with some very fun people.

4. E’s First Communion went very well. She was nervous but handled herself beautifully.

5. Went on a Segway tour with Dan yesterday. It was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed our afternoon date.

Hilights of the week- April 7th

1. I sometimes forget how funny my husband can be. When we were wondering why our downstairs neighbour seems to be constantly cooking onions at 10pm, Dan says “Oh, he must be into that home stew all the young guys at work are talking about. They’re always comparing seasonings..” I cracked up and it still makes me laugh.

2. E was off school this week, so we went for manicures and pedicures on Tuesday and then for coffee and macaroons on Friday. She’s a lot of fun to hang out with.

3. Had my first Rat Lab practice on Saturday and I think it went pretty well.

4. Spent a good part of the day exploring the Pacific Science Centre with friends. I definitely preferred the butterflies over the naked mole rats.

5. Went to a new cupcake bakery with a friend. It was delicious and great to catch up.

Hilights of the week- March 31st

Filed under: Derby,Food,Gratitude,Hilights,Kids — by Alison @ 11:40 pm

1. Try-outs were Saturday and I made it all the way to the interview stage. Then after an excruciatingly long wait, I got the call that I have made the Rat Lab (the holding spot until skaters get drafted by one of the home teams). I’m so excited to be part of the Rat City Roller Girls.

2. We had friends over for Easter dinner and it was a fantastic evening. Turkey dinner, sundaes for dessert and fun board games to relax.

3. The sun has reappeared and our backyard is all tidied up.

4. Fancy tea is very nice to share with friends.

5. I made my Easter Eggs and I don’t have to share them.
