3 Things Thursday: Week 67

School is officially out for the summer, and just like every year, I feel like year-end crept up on me with no notice! It’s not like I knew back in September that a school year is only 10 months or anything. Now I’m scrambling to figure out a routine for work while the kids are at home and keep them busy with non-screen related activities. I have to say that’s getting a lot harder as they get older. 

This week {week 67 of our link-up, can you believe it?} I’ve got all kinds of randomness to share you about what’s going on in my world. If you are a blogger and would like to join the 3 Things Thursday link-up there are details below on how to join in the fun. stanley park fireworks

One: Fireworks Moments
This one should have been part of my post last week but it totally slipped my mind. On Canada Day, I watched the fireworks show in downtown Vancouver for the first time in years, and for the very first time from Stanley Park. What an amazing display!

I’ve never really been a ‘fireworks person’, I didn’t really get the hype, but now I’m in love. Not to mention, me stopping for a whole 15 minutes and just observing a show of light, art, pattern, and design – that’s just sweet perfection. moms 30 for 30{This is my day 6 outfit for the challenge, join me on Instagram to see more!}

Two: Awkward Encounters 
So I’m doing this moms 30 for 30 thing, which means I’m posting a lot of selfies on Instagram this month – more than normal, and some people are leaving really sweet comments. Guys, I don’t really know how to respond to a comment when someone comments about my physical appearance. I think it’s really sweet, but I also feel a bit awkward because of my personal struggles with image issues.  I feel like this thought warrants a whole blog post, but for now I’m just going to put it out there under the category: ‘things I had no idea would be a part of my blogging life’.kabuli naan, sizzling tandoor restaurant

Three: Kabuli Naan
Last week Mr. T and I went on a media trip to check out an Indian restaurant in Victoria called Sizzling Tandoor, and tried a sweet naan for the first time. The head chef at the restaurant, Narpinder Bawa, made a Kabuli naan stuffed with cherries, cashews, and coconut right in front of us, and served it hot out of the tandoor. It was delicious, and I may have been mildly over-excited about being that close to an actual tandoor for the first time in my life. We were treated to some very delicious dishes during the trip, and I picked up some really fun tips that we can all bring into our home cooking that I’m going to share next week.

    Sweet naan? That sounds interesting!

    And I feel awkward when people say nice things about my pictures too. I’ve struggled with body issues in the past, and I always feel like I need to say something more than thank you. For example, something like, “Thanks but look at my hair, so many frizzies!”
