Well we are almost into August, something I’m in denial about. I feel as if I haven’t lived summer yet. Does that make sense? We haven’t spent everyday outside, nor gone on a fun summer holiday via plane or boat (Osoyoos was fun though!). If you read my weekly Friday Roundup or follow my Instagram, you’ll see I’ve been busy, but I feel today as if I haven’t? Does that make sense?
This weekend is full of no plans haha. I’ve been nagging at Curtis to plan something for the long weekend and I know it will be myself that will end up planning. I want to do more patio evenings and bike rides around the city. Plus days spent at the beach and maybe a hike.
The past week was pretty ok, I woke up in a funk Wednesday and didn’t feel like socializing. I tried out a happy hour at the Emerald Supper Club last night. I have been a few times at night with friends, but haven’t been early for happy hour. The lounge is so mid-century with those Palm Springs vibes I love. Worth checking out if you live in Vancouver!
I also went to the Deighton Cup last weekend with my brother. It’s a fancy horse racing day at a local racecourse. Afterwards, went out for dinner with my brother and had drinks across the street.
And we all went to my parent’s friends home for a birthday party on Sunday.
Next week I have a few events I’m attending which all sound fun! Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see my Instagram stories and latest posts!
And Sunday is now GoT + Ballers + Insecure + Great British Bakeoff in our house. Anyone else watching these shows?
