Hullo, hullo friendly faces! Happy Sunday to ya! 😀
How’s your weekend been so far? Mine’s been… cold. I had all sorts of plans to spend the weekend on the slopes, but freezing my face off in -20ºC weather didn’t really sound like a good time, so instead, I baked…
It’s a rough life 😉 In all seriousness, though, you wouldn’t find me complaining if winter decided to throw in the towel and pack it up early. As much as I enjoy having the snow around when I want to go snowboarding, it doesn’t really do me any good when it’s too cold to enjoy it. Thankfully, temporary relief is close at hand.
Remember how I mentioned that I had something exciting coming up in my last currently post? Time to spill the beans… I’m heading to Hawaii next week to spend time with J! Woo! I’ll never be a fan of these long-distance relationship things, but at least they have some perks. I’d say a little more, but I’m currently too distracted by the Canada – Sweden gold medal hockey game that I woke up at 4:30 AM to watch, so we’ll chat later. In the meantime, enjoy some of these awesome links that I came across this past week… and have an awesome Sunday!
Edited to add: 3 – 0 win for Canada! #GoCanadaGo

Three things you did yesterday; three things you’re going to do today. Go:
Yesterday: ran errands, baked, and caught up with friends.
