This is my week for being behind. For some reason, I am just not myself this week and I can’t seem to keep up with all my roles and responsibilities. But that happens to everyone right? In fact, it’s actually Thursday afternoon as I write my #3ThingsThursday post. I don’t think in the 45 weeks that we’ve been doing this that I’ve ever started writing so late. But I’m doing it and that’s the important thing. Plus, I have lots of fun stuff to share this week, so here goes!
1. The First Hockey Game
My 5 year-old, went to his first real NHL hockey game last weekend with his dad. Despite the fact that the Canucks lost, he had such a fun time and can’t wait for the next one. It’s big first in this house and I love that I can share it on my blog and he’ll always have that memory.
2. Girls Night of Painting at 4Cats Art Studio
A while back, the kids and I were invited to a great event where we got to paint and build clay penguins. So when I got invited to a girls night of painting at 4Cats, of course I jumped at the opportunity! It was an eventing of snacks, good conversations and a group painting lesson were we worked on our own inspiration of Van Gough’s Starry Nights.
Now I’m no professional painter, but the owners, Marnie and Lisa are so helpful and patient that I ended up with a painting that I was proud of. Next week, we are signed up for a family workshop where the four of will be creating a splatter painting. It sounds like messy fun and we can’t wait!!
Have you ever heard a mashup before? It’s a popular phenomenon with songs from Bollywood films. Usually there are about 4-5 songs in one movie. All those songs are taken, broken into smaller bits and then remixed together. It’s actually pretty awesome! If you look up mashup on YouTube, you will get lots of results. My favourite right now is the Student of the Year Mashup. Take a look:
