Filed under: Derby,Food,Gratitude,Hilights — by Alison @ 7:43 pm

1. There is sun and warmth. The weather was so beautiful this week. I sat by the canal and watched boats go by.

2. I bought my new skates with my birthday money. I can’t wait to try them out.

3. Went for Caribbean sandwiches at Paseo. I can’t believe I had never been before, it was incredible.

4. Having tea with Jess always makes my week better. She really helped reset my week and put it

5. Sunday was my last scrimmage with PFM. It has been such an amazing group, and it was bittersweet to leave Core.

1. My parents were here all week.

Hilights of the week- April 7th

Filed under: Derby,Food,Gratitude,Hilights,Kids — by Alison @ 4:42 pm

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.

1. Yesterday was my birthday and I got to celebrate with skating, family time and lots of Skype chats.

3. Post preschool parent gathering involved lots of laughs and a hunt for free appetizers.

4. E was of school on Friday, so we got to hang out during H’s preschool. She was also shown around the preschool very proudly by her little brother.

5. Booked our flights for my brother’s wedding, it’s less than 3 months away now.

5. Visiting a downtown waterfall and then an Asian supermarket, with cream puffs for dessert.

1.  Visited my injured friend and she was in good spirits. Then later in the week, she came to watch practice.

2. Dan and I did some long term planning, and have created spreadsheets and set budgets. Feels nice to have some decisions made.

3. I made fudge and brownies this week. The house smelled like chocolate for a few days, delicious.

4. Dan and E went out to the movies (to replace the Father-Daughter Dance) and I got to hang out with H for the evening.

5. Walking around the zoo in February is pretty sweet. Even the jaguars were in a good mood.
