Here are 8 things that have been happening lately and I deemed share worthy news.
Blendtec– We recently purchased a refurbished Blendtec blender and it has been awesome. It is much more powerful than our trusty magic bullet ant it’s been a thrill to make bigger, bolder smoothies. My favorite thing is the smoothie button with a 60 second countdown on the display. It’s incredible.
Riverdale. This TV series was interesting. I loved the drama, the sassiness and the straight up craziness from some of the characters. Yes, that’s you Cheryl Blossom. But some parts were so cheesy, I couldn’t help but eye roll. ie- Betty’s constant high pony. Have you watched it?
Wedding planning. Less than 80 days to go until the big event. I am really starting to get over-the -moon giddy with excitement for the whole wedding week. We can’t wait to show off our city to our guests and really look forward to being married! Dress has been picked up and it’s all starting to feel very real!
Books. Similar to how I re-watch Friends and The Mindy Project millions of times over, I like to re-read my favourite books over and over. I have been re-reading three of my favs and I KNOWWW there are other books (and shows) out there that I would love, but something about re-reading a good book that just makes everything right in the world. Lullabies for Little Criminals, Random Family and The Glass Castle are some of my favs. What can I say? I like what I like ! I am branching out and reading You Are A Badass which is very motivational and I like it.
Lion. The movie, not the animal. This movie was so incredible, I couldn’t stop thinking about it for three days. It made me cry allllll the tears and feel so many feels. I can not properly describe how amazing this movie was. Go see it!
Birch Camp. One of the (many) amazing things about working at my school is the culture camps. We recently went to tap birch trees and learn the process of making birch syrup/birch butter. So cool and it was a nice sunny day. Perfect class field trip.
Weekend getaway. Our friends recently got married in Banff and it was oh so beautiful. It was such a nice weekend in the mountains. Banff/Canmore is a wonderful location for us northerns to get our mountain fix and just relax and unwind.
Chrissy Teigen. To know me is to know I loveeee Chrissy Teigen. She is the best. So when she paired with Becca Cosmetics to launch a glow face palette, I was all over it. It’s beautiful and I love it as much as I knew I would.
That’s an update from my northern world. Sending lots of love to all our wonderful followers! Happy Spring ! xo Janna
