Fall weather

It’s definitely feeling like fall here in Calgary now. The morning’s are crisp and darker later. More often than not now I have to wear gloves to the gym in the morning because it’s that cold already. There are leaves everywhere on the ground. We’ve even had a snowstorm or two already. Halloween is next week!

Fall is my favorite season so I soak it in every single year. There’s just something about transitioning from summer to winter, going from hot weather to cold, being able to enjoy Thanksgiving with my favorite people, cozy clothes – there’s just so much to like!


My boyfriend’s dog may not be a puppy anymore (he turned one last month), but I think I might be loving him more than ever. He has such a big personality – always wanting attention from everyone (even strangers), always looking for something to eat, and never being able to resist chasing after a toy that’s thrown for him.

Winston’s “gotcha day” is next month, but it’s hard to believe that I’ve known him for less than a year – it seems like he’s just always been around. What would date night be like without slobbery kisses, fur all over my clothes, and holding toys for him to chew on?

He definitely has moments like when he’s cranky and clearly tired but refuses to have a nap and instead cause trouble, but I think we all tend to get like that once in awhile. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. I’m so glad that my boyfriend got him.

All Out 90’s playlist on Spotify

Every once in awhile I find a great playlist on Spotify, and lately it’s been this one. It reminds me of junior high and high school (which makes me feel really old, BTW).

This playlist has everything from Backstreet Boys to Britney Spears to Savage Garden to the Spice Girls. There was so much great (and really bad) music back then. I like putting this playlist on when I’m working at the computer and remembering how much I liked songs that I haven’t heard in ages. It’s hard to believe that 1990 was nearly 30 years ago now!

As for this weekend, I don’t have much planned. I’m sure there will be a date night at some point, along with a workout or two. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
