the first five days after the weekend are always the hardest.


Things I love? Long weekends! All of my fellow Canadians will know that this past weekend was the Victoria Day long weekend. What did that mean for me? A Monday off of work, time spent with loved ones, and plenty of fireworks. As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to enjoy the festivities!

I spent the Saturday with my boyfriend. We started off the day by seeing some friends, then went on to buy some CDs and DVDs, watched movies, ate dinner, and even unleashed our kiddie side. I bought some bubble wands and sidewalk chalk so we could be silly and have fun outdoors. The bubble wands were so much fun. (You're never too old for bubbles!) It was just a really nice day.

Then Sunday was spent doing some work (boo) during the day and then hanging out with my mom. We did some shopping in the afternoon and then came home to watch a ridiculous amount of Bridezillas on Netflix. It was a nice day, for sure.

And lastly, Monday was spent catching up on things. I tried to be productive but still find some time to relax. It felt nice to watch a couple of my favourite TV shows during the day. Once the sun went down, my family, my boyfriend, and I went outside to light sparklers and watch fireworks around the neighbourhood. Overall, it was a nice weekend. I definitely needed it!

Here are some of my pictures from the Victoria Day long weekend:





Did you celebrate Victoria Day? How is your week going?
