Out and about

I've been out and about this week, and the other night me and my mom checked out a thrift store.
Here is an original album of West Side Story, the show my husband is conducting this summer for TUTS.
I also found a wall...of dolls...in little plastic bags.
They look so creepy, just staring away at me from inside their plastic bags!

Beach Day

I am on vacation all week!
But had to come in to work once this week for a quick meeting.
I brought my hubs to the office, and then we went to Tower Beach.
It was nice to sit and soak up the sun, instead of rushing back to work, as I have done in the past. I'm so glad the sun is out and it finally feels like summer.

More artsy things

The watercolour fun continues.
I got a proper pad of paper, specifically for watercolour art. It's nice and thick, so it doesn't crinkle when you add water.
I love the swirly effects you can get from watercolours. It has really inspired me to do more artsy things.

Staying fit

I haven't made a lot of time for Zumba lately. Also, three of my favourite teachers have either moved away or changed teaching locations! But I got some new shoes, and hopefully they will inspire me to go to class more regularly. I managed to get to a class last week, and it was so sweaty and good!
Here's a picture of a yummy yogurt parfait, to help me eat better when I can't get to class.

Funkifze wedding gig

Funkifize played our wedding gig and it was so much fun!
It was at the Vancouver Golf Club, which is in Coquitlam.
Nice views on the green, and off!
Here's some snapshots of the band, in full swing.
Here we are - all 10 of us - almost! Drew was off doing groomsmen duties.
It was so much fun, I hope we get to play together again soon!

Happy 10th (!!) birthday, Noah

My nephew Noah is 10! His birthday was last week, and we celebrated at Red Robin.
We're having another barbecue this weekend, with his school buddies.
I took a customary selfie with him. And Leyna had to get in on the fun too, of course.
I always look goofier than the kids.

Summer sips

We're well into July and I wish the weather would cooperate. It's been cold and gloomy in Vancouver these days. Last week we had a rare bit of sunshine, so we found a patio and planted ourselves there for a late dinner.
And I have this wine to look forward to - it was a gift from a friend who stayed with us a couple of nights. Now I just need some sunshine.
