Wednesday Favourites & Un-Favourites #4

Favourites!

1/ UPCOMING ANNIVERSARY TRIP

We’re going away for our 5 year anniversary in just a few short weeks and I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t wait to have 3 days of relaxing and hanging out with my two favourite boys (yep – Severus is coming along too!) in a cute little beach shack. Here is a sneak peek!

2/ PASTRY RELATED SNACKS

Last week I was in love with the gouda biscuits. Now I’ve discovered they also make onion and chive pastry twists. Why do they do this to me? WHY?

3/ INSTAGRAM FRIENDS!

I’m so glad I have had the chance to connect with great people like Eloise from blog Exercise For Extra Fries. She joined me for my 7 Days of Self Love Challenge, and we’ve been insta-buddies since. She recently came up with this great idea to send each other food treats in the post, and of course I jumped right on that! She also introduced me to Kate of instagram page who joined in on the fun too. I got so many delicious goodies from them both last week and it was so much fun opening up my packages. Insta-friends are awesome guys!

4/ LINDT DARK CHOCOLATE WITH SEA SALT

When I got my period on Saturday (yes I know, TMI), Jared asked me if I wanted him to bring me home anything special (not sure if he was being sweet, or if it was just for his own safety), but I told him no. He then suggested dark chocolate and my eyes lit up. He came home with a block of Lindt Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt because he knows I love that weird sweet/salty combo and it was SO good. The block is now gone and I have no regrets.

Un-Favourites!

1/ LEAVING MY TOWEL AT HOME…. AGAIN

You’d think I’d learn after my first time, right? Wrong. Because being awkward is one of my specialties. It’s ok though guys, because even though I forgot my towel, I did however pack the t-shirt I went to bed in the night before. Why you ask? Well, your guess is as good as mine. I have no idea why it was in my bag. It also happened to be one of Jared’s t-shirts from when he was like 18, which sports the quote “take me to the vet, these puppies are sick” and has a huge Snoopy on it. Seriously…. only me you guys. (It worked out well though, because Snoopy shirt doubled as my towel).

2/ BLACK BOOKS.

I had watched a few episodes many, many years ago and loved it.  And I finally convinced Jared to watch it with me recently and I got him hooked and we ended up binge watching all the episodes we could find…… which was only 3 seasons worth. 3 SEASONS?! We frantically googled for more and sadly found out that they didn’t make any more after the third season. I was devastated. I wasn’t emotionally prepared for such a sudden finish. Did Fran ever end up getting a job? Did Bernard finally confess his undying love to Fran? Did Manny finally get a girlfriend? How did I get so emotionally attached to a ridiculous British comedy from 10 years ago? So many unanswered questions!!!
