Last Friday Roundup of 2017! I’ll be taking a break next week, but have a couple of posts lined up still along with a 2017 recap 🙂
It’s been quiet on the blog in the last week or so. I’ve been busy personally and the holiday season has taken off! But I’m really excited for 2018 and planned some fun content for you guys!
Last week I attended two events on Thursday. Native Shoes launched their brick and mortar store in Gastown. We then sampled some new products at Jugo Juice. Also had Friday off, Curtis and I ran some errands, went downtown and took advantage of a couple of happy hours and shopping (I suggest not shopping while tipsy haha)
Been going to my pottery course each Wednesday. It’s been fun but discovering how hard it is! I’m just happy if I can make a bowl and not ruin another mound of clay.
And my friend Mia had a birthday dinner this week and besides that just binge watching The Crown, editing videos and photos (I want to get organized for the new year), wrapping gifts (thanks Curtis!) and cooking at home.
We also did some holiday baking at my moms, bought some Italian Christmas goodies, did some holiday shopping, grabbed some drinks at happy hours, ate some delicious food and met up with Friends for brunch and drinks.
This weekend I’m going to the Christmas Market with friends, seeing Star Wars with the family, making Christmas Eve dinner at my place (tamales, enchiladas etc yum!) and visiting Van Dusen Festival of Lights.
And a quick thank you to all who have supported the blog this year! I’m forever grateful for your daily visits, comments and follows on my social media platforms! I love creating content, meeting new people and sharing everything with you in this tiny part on the web. xoxo
What are your holiday plans? Anyone traveling?
