Welcome to another High Five for Friday, a post where I recap 5 great things from my week so far. Here goes:


1. Moved! 

 
I have (finally!) moved in to my new condo! The actual move was stressful and, as is always the case, a bit of a disaster, but at least I am moved in! I am definitely still in the process of working on the condo/getting settled but I am excited to at least be in my new space (even if that does mean eating on the floor for the moment because I don’t yet have a table or chairs haha).

Spending time with my best friend

My best friend since the 8th grade came in from Ontario on Monday night and we spent Monday & Tuesday hanging out in Vancouver. It was SO great to be able to show her my new apartment, my city, and my friends in Vancouver. One of the only things I miss about living in Ontario is getting to see her all the time. She was a HUGE help and helped me get more settled in to my apartment on Tuesday during the day. We also spent some time at Kits beach, went for dinner, and went for Trivia at a local pub.

Spending time with my favourite tiny humans

 
After spending two days in Vancouver with Maddie, on Wednesday we headed over to Vancouver Island where her two kids were spending time visiting their grandparents. I spent Wednesday and Thursday hanging out with them there. We played in the park, swam in the lake, collected sea glass by the ocean, and basically just lived outside!

4. Dinner at Chambar
 
My parents were in town Friday through Sunday to help with the move. On Sunday night we went to Chambar for dinner, which is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. I had the mussels & fries, my go-to dish, and it was amazing as always. The mussels are gigantic and the white wine broth is so. darn. good. For dessert my mom and I also split this chocolate thing with a beetroot ice cream. I would never have thought I would like beets in my ice cream but my goodness it was amazing. Just the tiniest bit of tartness from the beets and the texture was so creamy. I am getting hungry just thinking about it.

Forest walk

 
I know I already mentioned spending time with my goddaughters as one of my 5 things, but a particular walk through the forest with 6 year old Adelaide totally deserves it’s own mention. On Thursday morning Maddie and I took the girls on a walk to the starbucks (we were dying for coffee) and we took a scenic 20 minute walk along the beach/through a forest to get there. Adelaide, having longer legs than her two year old sister, walked with me pretty far ahead. I’ve always said that getting a kid on a walk with you is the best way to find out what’s going on with them as they just don’t stop talking. This was so true of this walk. I almost never get to spend one-on-one time with Adelaide, and doing so allowed me to learn so many things about her little life right now (her favourite animal, favourite drink, what she thinks about dance class, and her ‘difficult’ teeth); It was so fantastic to bond just with her.  

 


I Hope you all have had a great week so far as well! I am off now to a friend's cabin for the weekend and I am so freaking excited for it! See you back here on Monday!
