happy friday!

If last week seemed long, this week flew! I'll be honest, it was kind of a crappy week though, for a few different reasons. But it's Friday! And if that's not happy, I don't know what is.

Here's some of the things that made me happy this week:

+ This sight. Spring is the best.

+ I chose a wedding dress! (I'm hoping to write a wedding dress post soon, but no promises.)

+ We booked an officiant! (This whole wedding thing is getting really real ;)

+ Flights and hotel for my bachelorette weekend in Hong Kong are booked! (Thanks, Melissa and Alanna!)

+ I filed my taxes! (Well, I paid a guy to file my taxes. Point is, they're done!)

+ On the way back from a field trip with my kiddos, they all broke into song together. First, they sang a Mandarin song about firefighters and then "Let It Go." It was adorable.

+ I got new perfume. Smells so good!

+ I wore a dress today with no tights! Woohoo for bare leg season!

What made you happy this week?

welcome to china / 7.

Where you can pay 162 RMB ($32 CAD) for less than a pound of cherries. I'm guessing (hoping) these are imported.

P.S. Welcome to China 1-6.

celebrating the first day of spring.

celebrating the first day of spring

If there's any day that deserves to be celebrated, it's the first day of spring. Especially when you live in a place where it's actually warm enough to go for a walk and eat frozen yogurt outside. (Sorry to all my friends back home. I promise I'm not trying to make you feel bad.)

Tony was nice enough to skip floor hockey on Friday to celebrate with me. We got frozen yogurt and ate it sitting outside, people watching. And then people watched me take a photo of my empty container ;) (And then I carried the empty container home, so I could take another photo in front of a white wall, in case I didn't like how the photo against the grey wall turned out. And Tony didn't even laugh at me, which is how I know I'm marrying the right guy.)

I'm thinking celebrating the first day of spring might turn into a tradition for our family. (How weird is it that I'm in a place in my life where I'm imagining traditions with possible future kids?!)

P.S. Last year's celebration, a poem, and a quote.

happy friday!

This week seemed so long. But now it's Friday night and I can't believe it. My plans for the weekend include working on report cards and trying on wedding dresses. 

In the meantime, here's what made me happy this week: 

+ This sight every morning.

+ Eating the most delicious homemade chip dip with Melissa!

+ I had the chance to talk to grade 5 students about blogging.

+ A spontaneous mini-hangout & hot chocolate with Alanna.

+ Looking at flights and hotels for my bachelorette!

+ Spring Carnival at school. School Spirit Day, Favourite Colour Day, Crazy Hair/Hat Day, Pajama Day, Pink Shirt Day. It was so fun dressing up and seeing the kids dressed up and so excited.

+ Lisa, one of my TAs, went to IKEA and offered to pick up a few things for me. I got a lot of candles (including lilac scented!) and this shower curtain. It looks so bright and fun in person; I love it!

+ Celebrating the first day of spring with T.

+ We just ordered Indian and we'll have a picnic on the living room floor while watching House of Cards.

Tell me, what made you happy this week?
