Happy Summer, Blog World!

Hey guys!

I hope you didn't think I'd forgotten my sweet little blog. Because I just never could.

I hope everyone is having a really awesome summer! To be honest, I haven't been posting because my summer has been blissfully boring.

While things haven't been on the very exciting side, I have to say, this has been the best summer yet.
I've been seeing someone wonderful for a few months now and if I were to post regularly, I'm a little terrified I would bore you all to tears. No thrilling date nights, no crazy adventures. Just lots of cooking and sitting on the couch. 

Just an example of those blog headlines-

"We got a blender!"

"Dreaming of a slow cooker."

"Another night watching Game of Thrones."

"Exciting Cutthroat Kitchen marathons!"

Yeah. I know. 

I have some great things planned coming up and I cannot wait to share them soon. In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a really great summer!!!!!

Canada 2015- Part 09

By Sunday morning, we had pretty much done everything on our list.

After much thinking, we finally settled on Steveston. Steveston is where they film the majority of Once Upon a Time. Essentially, it's Main Street in Storybrooke. 

While I'm not a huge huge OUAT fan, I do watch it most of the time so this was definitely a fun stop.
We located Mr. Gold's Pawn Shop through an online listing and the library is pretty much right out in the open. There is actually a candy store along the main drag that sells an amazing selection of sweets and for a $2 donation, you get a walking map of the Storybrooke sights. Pretty good deal!

Canada 2015- Part 08

After we returned from our roadtrip, we all separated to get ready for the evening.

Since it was Saturday night, my friend Ashley was hosting a big BBQ with everyone I know. Such a great way to see all of the friends I've made in BC.
I supplied the fancy American Oreos.

We played with creepy prom Ken doll.

The kids read stories before bed.

We hung out around the fire.

It was a total blast. 

Somehow I found this random photo on my phone the next morning.

Canada 2015- Part 07

Our next stop was Hell's Gate.
That sounds awfully creepy.

Hell's Gate is actually a portion of Fraser Canyon in Boston Bar. There's a little airtram that takes you from the top all the way to the bottom of the canyon over the rapids. At the bottom, there's some touristy stuff and a restaurant.

We stopped here for lunch (more poutine, of course) and took some fun photos. There's a small bridge that goes across as well but... No. Just no. It was windy. No.

Canada 2015- Part 06

The next day we took a little daytrip.

I love that I already did the downtown Vancouver tourist attractions. It meant I got to spend a lot more time doing the kinds of things my friends like to do and getting to see places they've been and see more of the nature side of BC than just the city.

We piled into Tara's jeep early and headed for Merritt. Nykky knows how much I love country music, so she and Ashley had suggested this small town since there was a lot of country music attractions here. The drive over was gorgeous and the weather was pretty perfect.

When we got to Merritt, it turns out the Country Music Hall of Fame was closed. No big deal. We got to enjoy all sorts of awesome murals and do the Country Music Walk of Fame. There were some awesome stars along the way so we got to see some pretty cool spots. 

We also made a stop for bannock. I love native frybread from Arizona and the bannock here was pretty awesome. Even better- they cafe played lots of Johnny Cash. 

On our way out, I sampled some contraband in the form of Kinder Surprise.
