// Travel then vs. travel now. Hahaha! But really though.

// If any of these were my bathroom, I would never leave.

// Is your blog ready for "Mobilegeddon"?

// I WANT TO SHOP AT TRADER JOE'S! (Yes, caps are necessary.)

// Would you wear a fanny pack? More importantly, would you laugh at me if I did?

// I think this is beautiful. Women bleed. Deal with it.

// Adorable.

// This is what it looks like when men are allowed to take 480 days of paternity leave. (Not gonna lie, one of the main reasons I'm excited to have kids—someday!—is to see Tony be a dad.)

// I don't want Downton Abbey to end! (But I also don't want it to drag on forever, I guess.)

// I hope I'm this kind of mom.

// Truth!

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.

welcome to china / cherries

welcome to china / cherries

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.
