Another weekend is just about here! It’s supposed to be cool and rainy to day, but Saturday and Sunday are looking good weather wise. Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend?

I’m looking forward to a yin yoga class on Saturday morning and then helping out with an outdoor yoga class on Sunday afternoon. If you’re in Calgary and interested in coming to the class in Baker Park, get all the details here. And of course I’m planning on spending some time in the backyard enjoying a good book.

Since it’s Friday I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite things here on the blog. As always, I’d like to hear what you’re loving this week. Leave a favorite of yours in the comments below.

Reading in the backyard

I had forgotten over the winter how nice it is to take a good book and head to the backyard to read. There’s just something about relaxing outside while doing something that I enjoy that feels so good.

I’m currently reading Teaching Yoga (affiliate link) and Americanah (affiliate link). Teaching Yoga is such a good refresher for me about all the things that I learned at yoga teacher training. There was so much information to take in over the course of the 7 months, it was impossible to me to take it all in. I’ll most likely be teaching one of the outdoor classes at Baker Park this summer, so I’ll be sure to keep you updated on when that will be.

Starbucks app

A few months ago I started using the Starbucks app. It makes it so easy to go in and order my drink – I don’t have to pull out my wallet or anything. In addition to loading money onto your app, you can also add gift cards, so everything is in one spot. You can even order your drinks ahead of time so that they’re ready when you arrive at the store and you don’t have to wait in line.

You even get points when you use the app to pay, so you can get customization to your drinks, free drinks, and even merchandise. I usually head out to a Starbucks once a week to get out of the house and get some work done, so I’ve been using the app more the last few months. If you’re late to the game on using the Starbucks app like I am, give it a try. I think you’ll like it.

Summer flowers

With all the sunshine and warm weather we’ve had here in Calgary, It feels like everything is green and blooming. These trees were so pretty – they were absolutely covered in pink flowers. It makes the cold and seemingly never ending winters worth it when you see something like that.

These trees almost didn’t look real because there were so many blooms on them. I’ll definitely be taking in as much of the pretty flowers as I can while they’re here this summer. Before I know it, it’ll be fall and winter will be here again!
