I know I ask this often, but how it is Friday already!? Normally, I’m asking because I’m in shock about how fast the week has flown by, but this time I’m asking because I can hardly believe that my two-week trip to Victoria is coming to an end. When I came over here, I was so excited to have a longer amount of time to visit with all of my friends. Unfortunately, I was sick for more than half of my trip, leaving me scrambling to fit in as many visits as I could in just a few days. In the end, I didn’t get to see everyone I wanted to… and now it’s time to say goodbye (again).
As usual, the highlights of this trip included coffee dates at the beach, snuggles with my friends’ kids and lots of laughs with my family. I also got to help a girlfriend register for wedding gifts, and had another girlfriend ask me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I even had coffee with a girl I knew in high school but who has just recently become a friend.
Maybe it’s because the holidays are coming up, or because the year is winding down, but I’m a little sad to say goodbye to Victoria this weekend. I know I’ll be back in a month for Christmas, but each time I’m here I make so many new memories with the people I love that it gets harder and harder to say, “until next time”.
The low of my week was not being able to fall asleep at night, because of this stupid cough. But if that’s the worst thing that’s happened all week, I really can’t complain.
The high of my week was saying “yes” to being a bridesmaid in one of my best friend’s weddings in 2015! Oh, and earning $250 of side income that I wasn’t expecting to.
A blog post I loved was Why Hipsters Should Be Our New Financial Role Models over at Common Sense Millennial. Kali is definitely my new favourite blogger; her content is so refreshing.
The best money I spent was $0.30 on a book order I placed on Amazon.ca. I was given a $50 gift card earlier this week, which I used to buy a few books, including Drink, and my order came to $50.30.
My plans this weekend include picking my parents up from the airport tonight, hanging out with them for a day or so and then heading back home to Port Moody. After three weeks away, I’m so excited to sleep in my own bed…
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
