I recognize that this post is late – it should have gone up yesterday – but I’m not gonna lie. I totally forgot that it wasn’t scheduled already, so here we are on a beautiful and hot Saturday morning (I’m actually heading to my cousin’s wedding in a couple of hours) and there’s just enough time to squeak this in.
Thus, without any further ado here are my 5 Things from this week that brought me joy. As always this post is inspired by Emily’s 5 Things from Cupcakes and Cashmere.
Last weekend was a Girls Weekend. We went to Niagara-on-the-Lake, and stayed at White Oaks. The day was starting off at 6:00 am for pick up because we were going to be going to the Scottish Festival in Fergus. Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander, was going to be signing books. I was set to drive. Unfortunately, my anxiety the night before was over the top, and I didn’t end up sleeping. I had also worked myself into such a state that when the time came to leave, I just couldn’t do it. But, with some lightning quick changes the other three were able to go and meet Diana. My brother ended up giving me a serious pep talk later on the in the morning, and I was able to meet them at Niagara-on-the-Lake. Girl Weekend was a go for me 🙂
I was not there to get my copy of Outlander signed, but unbeknownst to me Shannon bought a copy for me there, and Sabrina got in line and got it signed for me. Natalie got in line and got some copies for Shannon signed (there was a limit of three). My girls are awesome. Also if you haven’t read Outlander – jump on it.
The night before Girls Weekend, Shannon, Doug and I went to the Scottish Festival in Fergus to see the opening tattoo and ceremony. I also did some shopping a got this great (and amazingly soft) t-shirt that on the front says “Lift here” and on the back says “Official Kilt Inspector.” My Nana when she saw that said it was “very cheeky.”
One of my favourite shows in BBC’s The Musketeers. It is such an awesome show, and I am incredibly upset and sad that it got cancelled after only 3 seasons. I got tired of waiting for season 3 to come to Netflix (but the first 2 seasons are there!) so I bought it and watched it in 2 days. So worth it.
I’m currently reading The Assistants by Camille Perri, and I’m really enjoying it. It is silly and completely hilarious. I also got it out of the library (I had it on hold for a while) which I’m very proud about because I’m working on spending less money and using the library more often.
