A Week of Small Pleasures #10

This post contains affiliate links.   I love finding small pleasures in life and finding the time to be appreciative and grateful for them. It’s been a while since my last entry. So my week of small pleasures is going to be more like a month (or four) of small pleasures. A lot has happened in the last few months, so let’s see what we’ve got!   1. The big move is officially completed. We moved from the coast of BC…Vancouver…to Kamloops. We’re in the […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #9

Well… it has been a busy few weeks of work and the rush is almost over. Thank you to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for this awesome blog event idea! Here are my small pleasures for the last couple weeks…   1. Was lucky to enjoy a breakfast with my love on the weekend before last. I usually work Saturday and Sunday while he is off. It was very nice to be able to sleep in and have breakfast together. We went to Browns […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #8

I feel like I’ve been super busy these days, but still find pleasures in every sense.   1. Dean and I have made the official switch to a non-dairy milk: Almond Milk!! It is so delicious and way healthier for you. So no more dairy, except for cheese…that is one thing that I alone will never be able to say no to. I am very proud of this switch for both of us and looking forward to so many more healthy choices! 2. I was […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #7

It has been a good week of small pleasures and smiles.   1. I have few Saturday evenings off work and the last was a last minute surprise! Dean and I enjoyed an evening out  with friends at The Well in Maple Ridge. Drinks, appies and UFC fights.   2. We had a sushi feast at our favourite place, Village Sushi, with our friend Larry. It was our send off for him, who has left for home, Thailand, for 6+ months. It was a good […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #6

I have had a great week and a bit! Here are my weekly small pleasures!   1. Halloween. My favourite day/weekend of the year. I wasn’t overly ready for it costume-wise, but I figured something out last minute. I did work all weekend and the work crew voted on a 50’s Diner look for Saturday and Sunday (unfortunately didn’t catch any photos) and Monday was a free for all. There was a Creepy Doll, a Rainbow Fairy and I went with some random creepy look […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #5

October is flying by and I have just found myself way too busy! Though busy is good sometimes, I need to find a middle ground. Here are my small pleasures over the past few weeks…   1. Dean and I had our two weeks off at the beginning of October. It was a well deserved two weeks off indeed. Though we didn’t spend much time relaxing. We moved all of our stuff from storage into our new home. It was a lot of hard work […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #4

Yeah week 4! 1. Mom, sister and I went for a walk at Mud Bay! Not only was it absolutely beautiful out, but we got just over an hour of exercise! 2. Inhale 1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. Yoga! Dean and I started our beginner’s yoga class last week. We both agree that it will take a bit of practice to get into our own yoga groove but we loved it and the way we felt afterwards. Looking forward to next class! 3. Early housewarming gifts […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #3

This weeks’ post is way past due! It has been a busy summer, full of excitement. Here are a few things that have brightened my day over the past few months.   1. I finally spotted two hummingbirds visiting our feeder! I love birds, especially these tiny little beauties.   2. My hunny and I have been able to take a few small road trips to the interior. These tiny getaways have been fun for both of us, as we are planning on moving out of […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #2

I have heard time and time again to enjoy the little things in life, for they are some of the most important. Here are my small pleasures…   1. Taking steps towards a healthier lifestyle. Starting with breakfast every morning! Fruit, water, tea and probiotics.   2. Happy Birthday to my Mom and Happy Earth Day to all! This is one of my favourite days of the year! A lone buttercup in the back yard made me smile, it’s a shame that these little beauties are […]

A Week of Small Pleasures #1

This week has been pretty great. A few cool and fun things happened…take a look! 1. I stubbled upon this cool blog called A New Life Wandering! I love finding new-to-me blogs to follow, especially when they inspire me. This one in particular started this “Weekly Small Pleasures” blog event two years ago. I actually can’t believe I didn’t find it earlier! I think this idea is ingenious and I am so excited to take part!   2. Scavenging for car parts at the junk yard. […]
