Friday Favourites


This was one of those weeks when I am saying TGIF!! Let's get to a few favourite things from this week and then it's time to get through this workday and stroll into the weekend (ding ding, Stroll, Canadian FI race this weekend in Montreal...anyone...?)

My ladies golf league is on Tuesday nights, and this week it was raining when I was supposed to tee off.  I thought about not going out, but there were two other ladies that were braving the rain so I decided to join them.  As usual, I'm glad I didn't cancel plans for weather.  We did get a bit wet but I had an umbrella and then it cleared up for the last few holes. The ducks were enjoying the puddles.

My dad was in town for a few days and brought me these nice flowers one day.

A few nice gifts I got for my birthday last week - the Jo Malone perfume, English Pear and Freesia.  It was my favourite from the sampler my friend had given me a few months ago so I asked for the full size bottle. 

I also got some nice shampoo and conditioner.  I got the same for Christmas and I only just finished up the shampoo, so my birthday came at the right time.

Two new pairs of Goodr sunglasses, a pink pair to replace the ones I had before that broke..

I'm also wearing the new dress I got from my mom, the same one as I have in blue :)

And my favourite colour, white!

Dave got me a new hat called a Ponyback.  It had a spot for your ponytail at whatever height you're wearing it. 
(Yikes, that mirror is filthy!)

And I asked for a bottle of port from my mom.  I thought that drinking a glass of port would be something sophisticated I could start doing. 

We have a busy weekend ahead, sports, Father's Day, and moving into our basement (plus the F1 race and US Open to watch).  I am hoping to be back here on Monday to show you how our new living space in the basement will look. 


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday!

  2. Happy birthday for last week! I'm so sorry I missed wishing you a happy birthday last week but I'm catching up on your blog now. Hey I bought that exact same Jo Malone scent a few years ago and I really liked it too! Drinking port does sound very sophisticated, now I'm tempted to do the same.

  3. I love seeing all your birthday gifts. Nice shampoo is a great gift to ask for and I never would've thought of that!
