I hope you all had a fun LONG weekend and that you are all refreshed to go back to work! The bonus that comes with a long weekend is that this work week will be just as short as last week because there’s only four days till the weekend! You may notice that I’m always (hopelessly) counting down to the weekend, but some of you lucky ones will be coming to Whistler with INTERNeX this weekend.
My weekend was extra long because I finally graduated from university on Thursday! It was an amazing day and much more special than I could have imagined. It was really cool to see my classmates soak in the whole experience and take what seems like a billion pictures. What was so awesome was that Marianne and Irene got to come and spend the day with me. I’m so thankful to have them not only as my colleagues but friends that will last a life time.
The next few days consisted of going to my friends’ grads, furniture shopping and more working at my other job for me! Ya, my life is pretty mundane and sometimes I’m a workaholic. Sometimes.
Marianne, on the other hand, went on an impromptu camping trip to Whistler. She showed me the most beautiful photos of a glacier and told war stories about her hike to get there so definitely ask her about her crazy adventures!
On Monday night, about twenty of us got together for a thanksgiving dinner at The Irish Heather. I think it’s awesome that so many new faces showed up and yes, the Danish crowd is ever growing. Our set menu included their signature French beer, Kronenbourg Blanc which was really tasty and a bit fruity.
We were all starving so when our roast turkey came, which included stuffing, Okanagan cherry relish, maple glazed sweet potatos and brussel sprouts, everyone just stuffed it down their mouths. We’re so classy =P My favorite thing was the pumpkin pie for dessert. Having turkey and pumpkin pie was a new experience for most of the candidates, but everyone agreed that it is one worth repeating!
Now, that’s enough blabbering about how my weekend was. How was yours?
