Happy end of the week Friday! It's been hot and smokey here in Calgary. It's been so hot that there's been heat warning in effect most of the week. We're actually forecasted to break a record today for the hottest temperature in the last 35 years! It's smokey and hazy because of some forest fires in British Columbia. Thankfully it's going to cool off briefly over the weekend, which I'm most definitely looking forward to.

Friday Favorites

I don't have much planned this weekend, though I might do a walking tour on haunted Calgary on Saturday night. I also have outdoor yoga on Sunday that I'm considering going to. I haven't been yet this summer, and before I know it summer will be over and outdoor yoga will be done for the year. I want to make sure that I take advantage of it while I can. 

I typically share some of my favorite things from the past week on Fridays, and today will be no different. On to my Friday favorites! 

Puppy yoga

I know I shared about this in my weekend recap, but I just wanted to mention again how much fun it was. If you have the opportunity to check out something similar where you live, I would really encourage you to try it out.

Not only did I get to do yoga with some amazingly adorable puppos, but I also got to support a rescue organization that does some great work in Calgary.

Mid week movie night with friends

I was invited over to a friend's place on Wednesday night for a movie night. She and her husband designed a movie room in their house and I got to experience it for the first time. 

The hostess provided a bunch of snacks and beverages for everyone (I went with water with orange slices in it – which was so good). We watched Game Night, and although I had already seen it, I didn't mind at all because I knew that there were lots of funny parts.  If you're looking for a kind of silly movie that will make you laugh, Game Night is your movie. 

Manduka Pro yoga mat

The yoga mat that I ordered last week arrived on Wednesday! While I've only managed to use it once so far, I'm really liking it so far. The Manduka Pro yoga mat (affiliate link) twice the thickness of my old yoga mat (which had started to fall apart, hence getting a new one), so I'm really liking the extra cushioning. I don't even mind that it weighs significantly more than my other one, which some people didn't like in the reviews that I had read. 

Once I've used it more and get a better feel for it, I'll share a review on the blog. Is there anything specific that you'd like to know about it? 

What's a favorite of yours from the last week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

    I think that Puppy Yoga looks amazing! I love hearing about what events you are thinking about doing or have gone to in the Calgary area – maybe I’ll see you at one of them.
