Happy Monday!! And happy MiMM! I was so excited to link up last week and I found a whole ton of new blogs to follow - so I'm super grateful! Thank you to miss Katie over at Diva Girl Eats for doing this link up weekly... It's only my second week and I'm loving it already!
What has been Marvelous for me lately? Hmm... Well...
1. Saturday was date night. We ended up going out and realizing that we so didn't want to be "out".. so after 1 drink we went home, put on our cumfy clothes, turned on My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, had some drinks on the couch and snuggled. Haha.. It sounds sooo cheesy but I think those are my favourite "dates" lately. I think I'm slowly getting over going out EVERY weekend... it feels nice to come to terms with getting old (ha!).
2. I replanted my herb garden this weekend so it could grow and flourish! I'm not sure I've ever had to "replant" something before and I'm fairly certain that it was the messiest thing I've ever done lol. I don't have a natural green thumb but planting my own herbs and watching them grow has made me so happy!! I feel like they're my little babies and I don't even want to eat them up! Haha. Out of 4 different types of herbs, only parsley and basil have flourished BUT that's ok because I enjoy both of them immensely. Also... I think I planted A LOT of parsley by mistake... so there's that... :) Parsley can pretty much go with anything - right?
3. I woke up yesterday morning to a gorgeous day and thousands of cyclists raising money for Ride 4 Heart on the major highway running right beside my condo building. I love when this event happens... 1. Because I don't have to drive anywhere so I'm never stuck in the crazy traffic that it causes and 2. because I love seeing so many people coming together for a great cause. Isn't it a cool thing? I think the same about parades and races. It almost gets me emotional. Races for sure get me emotional.. this wasn't as emotional for me because I was in bed.
Neat, right? Minus the crazy traffic on the left side of the photo. Haha. They should have checked the news before heading out.. oh well!
4. I bought a really cute necklace this past weekend. I love shopping.. it always makes me happy. My most favourite store is H&M. Basically all of my accessories and wardrobe is from there... I always find SO MUCH that I want to buy and take home.. but I don't have unlimited funds nor do I have unlimited space, so it does pose as an issue. I found this necklace and knew I wanted it on me. So I bought it.
I actually wore it for about an hour when we went out for our 1 drink date night haha. See - OOTN on Saturday!

As you can see it's nothing too special that happened this past week, but I think anything that makes you happy is worth celebrating - no?
Q: What's one thing that made you smile this past week/weekend?
