Happy Friday, friends…and a very happy long weekend to those of us who will be celebrating Canada Day this weekend! Woo Hoo!!
Before we jump in to the weekend fun, let’s confess…
Linking up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love :)
I confess… that there are few days on the calendar that I love more than Canada Day. The official day is July 1st – Monday – but my little town always celebrates a day early, on June 30th. And as I’ve mentioned here before, time & time again… our celebration is kind of epic. Can’t wait for Sunday to paint the town RED & WHITE!!!
I confess… I’m proud of our Canada Day Committee for pulling together yet again, and I’m fairly confident this year will be a success! So looking forward to the Community BBQ, parade, flag raising ceremony, Little Ray’s Reptiles, FIREWORKS!!! (my fave part), and of course the bash afterwards!
I confess… that I’m also looking forward to the Bretzlaff Family Reunion this weekend. I have relatives coming from Toronto and out West for the Reunion, and I’m excited to see them all on Saturday afternoon!
I confess… the only issue with all of these fun & exciting events this weekend is… I have no idea when the HELL I’m supposed to work out.
I confess… that last night I cut the grass and pulled weeds in my flower bed after Zumba class, and it was almost dark out when the mosquitoes finally chased me inside. My flower bed in front of the house was an embarrassment… jungle-like, and overgrown with weeds. I yoinked everything. This morning, my mom said, “Oh, I hope you didn’t pull those poppies that were just about to bloom.” Why, yes, Mother. I did. I pulled everything. Sorry, poppies, but you look like weeds!!!
I confess… that I hate weeding flower beds. Not my thing. At all.
I confess… that I kinda got choked up reading Lindsay’s blog post this morning, dedicated to my boy Cowan, who graduated from high school on Wednesday night! Isn’t he handsome?! I haven’t got my pics uploaded yet, but I loved looking at all the pictures Lindsay took. Very proud of you, buddy!
I confess… I’m exactly one month away from turning 30. I’m really not sure how I’m supposed to feel about this. But I’ve made up my mind not to feel glum about it. It’s too easy to sit around and think, “Man, I’m not where I wanted to be when I turned 30…” I am where I am, nothing can change that now. And I’m feeling pretty good these days, so let’s just embrace 30 and look forward to what it may bring!!
I confess… that despite that little pep talk I just gave myself, I’m planning on fully enjoying the last month of my 20’s!! I’M NOT 30 YET!!!!
I confess… that I LOVE the new Blake Shelton!!!!! And it feels like the perfect song to kick off the long weekend with!!!
I confess… that this day is going by reeaaaallllly slowly. But I guess Fridays before big weekends always do, don’t they?
Have a great weekend, everyone! Happy Canada Day to my Canadian pals, and Happy early 4th of July tp my American friends!
