Favourite Things Friday 2

Holy cow, this week has flown by!! I can’t believe Friday is here already, but after a big weekend and feeling half asleep most of the week, I’m happy about it! That means it’s time for another Favourite Things Friday!

It’s the last day of June, which has been a super busy month for me. We are finally getting hot weather (34 Celcius today!!), and I feel like summer is here now.

It’s Canada Day this weekend, our 150th birthday! I’m hoping to spend some time with friends, get out on the boat and hopefully check out some fireworks!

That being said here are my favs from the past week!

1. Murray and Kara’s Wedding!! 
This one of course is a no brainer on the list. I am working on a post about last weekend, but it was seriously some of the funnest three days I’ve had in a long time. It was so amazing to be able to spend the weekend with all of our best friends, drinking, boating and celebrating Murray and Kara. They did a fantastic job organizing it and the venue was seriously amazing.

Carmel Cove is a gorgeous resort community on Shuswap Lake, an awesome hidden gem. Sadly, I was too busy all weekend to make use of all of the amenities, like the pool and hottub, but it was the perfect backdrop for the wedding.

2. Happy Hour – Raspberry Margaritas
I would say my margarita making skills have gone up significantly since my Cinqo de Mayo party last month. I love whipping up a quick marg on the rocks, especially when it`s nice and sunny out. Russell came over for a little happy hour on the patio last night so I threw together two raspberry margaritas for us.

1 oz tequila
Juice of half a lime
4 raspberries, muddled with ice
Half a bottle of Perrier 
Splash of sweetener (I like the Skinnygirl liquid stevia)
Enjoy!!

3. Urban Outfitters Wall Hanging
You guys…I know I said I was going to work on my online shopping, but I haven`t been able to totally quit cold turkey. I ordered this amaze Selma Wall Hanging from Urban Outfitters and I`m sooo excited for it to come!! I love love the look of it! I`m not totally sure where in my apartment I`m going to put it, I sort of like the idea of having it in front of a window with the light coming through. I do have a lot of big empty walls to still fill up though.

I’m also getting super into the idea of having a lot of hanging plants in my place (have you seen Bev Cook’s plant post!? I’m obsessed). So I’m on the hunt for some cute, and reasonably priced planters.

4. Long Weekend!!! 
Oh hey Canada Day coming up, I see you! Time to put some fake tattoos on our cheeks, paint our faces red and fly the flag? …maybe not. I generally don’t get too fired up about Canada Day, and thus far my friends and I have zero activities planned, but it’s Canada`s 150, so I feel like we should probably get up to something.

It`s gonna be hottttt this weekend so I`m hoping I can get a group out to the lake to cool off on the pontoon and maybe check out some fireworks. Everyone seems to be movin’ a little slow after the 3 days of shenanigans last weekend, but I’m hopeful I can get people going.

What do you have planned for the weekend? I hope you have a great weekend, whether you’re celebrating Canada Day or Independence Day, enjoy!
