The glorious golden hour sure is a beautiful thing to behold! Sean & I…or well more like I (cos the boyf was happily planted on the sofa kicking back) decided it was time for a stroll + photo sesh. Sometimes a self-induced pinch happens just because I still can’t get over the charming and picturesque area we live in. Trails that seem to go on forever together with lush landscapes that are both scenic and harmonious.

Within fashion culture, it seems like the future of midi rings is catching on like wildfire. I’m seriously joining this bandwagon and purchased my 1st set from a fab Etsy shop called Galisfly, all the way from Tel Aviv, Israel. I’d had my eyes on another store hailing from Brooklyn called Catbird since 1st spotting Bri Emery wearing her handful of awesome! Unbeknownst to me my bf Vivian made a trip to NYC pre her Vancouver visit and stopped into the Catbird store itself!!!! I gasped when she told me about it last week and then bigger gulped/gasped when she pulled one of their bags out of her purse…for ME! Capital D-ied over the whole gift give moment and when I opened the darling box there it was: the cat ring of my dreams. Such a sweet surprise from the most outstanding friend I’ve ever had! This cat-astic wonder is an ongoing centerpiece of an accessory – been wearing the hay-ell out of it. Thank you again Vivian, will wonders ever cease with you? I think not 🙂

moments never forgotten

but darn if they didn’t take a while to post about! all the way back in April, ya that’s right, i pulled this one out of the “blast from the past” bin cos it was a truly awesome day and i simply loved reliving it while photo editing 🙂

KASA & i dusted off our bikes to go riding at Boundary Bay Regional Park, a bird watchers paradise with the wildlife reserve and its amazing bird sanctuary. we spotted so many HUGE harriers all over the place, perched high in the trees looking down at us with their stealth gaze. the bbq crowd had already gathered along the shores edge and we were tempted by many tasty scents wafting through the air. definitely will be returning again this summer for our own beachtime sunny-funny day. less layers would have been ideal, i kept having to zip the boyf up and i know that goes against every girlfriend rule book that tells us not to mother our fellas but still i can’t help myself. zip, tuck, button…it’s in my nature to nurture! baha. he doesn’t mind so much, the best is when he bundles me up too!!

my funny bone and call me happy! Well that’s the way it went down last Friday when a bunch of us ventured out for the evening. Kate had tipped us off to a favorite comedian of hers, Graham Clark, and this girl knows of what she speaks. Poising ourselves in close vicinity we opted for dinner first at Yaletown Brew Pub. I believe the name alone insinuates a bit of a burger fest, am i right or am i right?!  When the bill came we were also treated to a little cotton candy nosh – brillsville marketing on their part and our seal of approval – ROGER THAT!

Next we mosied over to The Comedy Mix to see the show, it was a riot from go to whoa. Even the announcer dude was side-splitting; everyone’s spirits were high on humorous octane. The night drew to a close, we said our tahs and spun home. Knowing the minute we opened the door those kittehs would practically rocket launch out for hallway reconnaissance. They certainly aren’t a stealth pair, that’s a fact!

Essentially this was my only outing for the weekend so it sure was great to spend it with these fine friends. I came to the realization that work and deadlines had the right of way, taking precedence over the remaining days which sort of stung a bit because I wasn’t able to go to the 3rd bloggy meet-up that had been arranged by Cee ANNNND it was a picnic in the park.
Of all things to miss – oh man, licking my wounds is what. Serious sacrilege of blogging buddy etiquette, I know…tell me about it. I’m told that Alicia is plotting the next one though and it’s gonna be good – remakequel sounds like a plan! 

Here’s to a new weekend that flows and shines, wishing you 
all kinds of glimmery goodness!!! ♥

pumpkin fields forever

The weather angels were so on our side this day, reminding the sun to rep itself and the clouds to stay far, far away! It was dealers’ choice as to which pumpkin patch we’d tromp through and my girlfs picked a stellar one for sure. There was a hay-bale ride complete with Mr. banjo-man strumming out the latest rendition of Old MacDonald, loads of furry farm friends grazing cautiously since there was a rampage of kiddlets running about.

We scoured endless fields for perfectly proportioned pumpkins, played in the hay-stack room; getting chased by our fellas with huge mounds on the ready to douse us with and snacked on pie (pumpkin, of course) while watching a rather eerie looking Jack-O-lantern backup dancer who seemed to be trying really hard not to bump into the band that was playing on the stage.

It was a chock-full of wonderful kinda day! ♥

no big…but i’m a grad!

Officially completed my course and so relieved to not have one ounce of homework this weekend. Have to say I may have had one too many “cheers” to celebrate this fact, as my achy head can attest to.

Happy weekend! ♥
