A Few Good Things

Here are some random highlights and snapshots from my life from the past few weeks!

This picture was taken during a sunny seawall walk with Rose, just before it started raining for 3 weeks straight. We took lots of ridiculous pictures that afternoon - here's one of the fun ones of me getting my "jump freeze" on:

Continuing my streak of winning things, I won this Avon Mega Effects mascara through a giveaway from Nicole at MomTrends. Review of this product coming soon!

We had 3 days straight of snow, which is slightly unusual for Vancouver. It's supposed to rain here in the winter, not snow! Even when it snows for 3 days straight, we still only had sparse accumulation, and there was still plenty of green everywhere:

Green bushes and green grass with white snow nearby!

I mentioned in this blog that I've been experimenting with a new breakfasty quinoa dish. This picture was snapped during my 2nd attempt at creating it... As soon as I perfect the recipe I will share it, but in the meantime, just know that this is quinoa being cooked in straight-up milk:

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER DONUT. This delicious Cookies 'n Cream donut came from Lucky's Doughnuts on 4th Ave in Vancouver. A perfect teatime treat to share with my love. Mmmmmmm.....
