This was a busy week! The first two days were spent in Seattle with my family. We had a great time at the Blue Jays/Mariners game, despite losing by a lot. :) Still, I’m happy that we went, and I’m glad this is now an annual event for us. :) Although next year, we’ll probably stay for at least two games!

The rest of the week was pretty uneventful. I got in a long run this week of 17km, which I’m happy about … but with the half marathon less than two months away, it’s a bit stressful. I had hoped this year I could really put in a good effort to improve on my time, but with the injury setback, it’s been slow. Still, I’ll be able to at least run in the race.

I spent most of the weekend helping BF with his rental house. There was some tree pruning to be done, as well as a major renovation to the sundeck. I’ve never done any renovations before (aside from painting, and building IKEA furniture), so it was a good learning experience. :)

This was a fun week for sure. Monday was a holiday for us (BC Day), so we spent it at White Rock Beach with friends of mine who were visiting from out of town. We had lunch, and played on the beach for a few hours. I never knew White Rock Beach existed before they suggested we meet up there, and I’m sure that we will be back again.

Bright and early Saturday morning, we headed across the border for breakfast with one of BF’s friends. Then we drove around Lake Whatcom, which is absolutely gorgeous! Another place I’ve never explored before. Around mid-afternoon, we drove to Redmond. There, we hung out on the shore of Lake Sammamish.

The next morning, we drove to Seattle to meet up with my parents and sister! We spent the afternoon wandering around the market and pier, and in the evening, BF and I went with my sister to GameWorks – a huge arcade right in downtown Seattle. It was so much fun! The variety of games was great, and drinks were cheap as well. My only complaint is that there weren’t enough pinball games – my favourite. :)

This was a really light week in terms of spending, because most of the things I did this week were free – two nights of the Celebration of Lights, Pride Parade, and the beach. :) I also went for lunch with a friend this week, and they offered up my meal for free because it took so long for them to bring it out (we think they forgot about it). Free food is the best. :)

Grocery expenses were way down this week because I stayed the majority of the time at BF’s house. But I sort of made up for it by helping purchase alcohol and a few groceries for a fireworks party he was throwing.

I think the most notable expese this week was finally buying a handheld water bottle for running. It’s one of those tiny 12 0z bottles with a handstrap. I’ve never run with water before, and when I drained the bottle halfway through my first run with it, I found myself wondering how I ever ran without one before? Crazy.
