I started the day with a snappy little 3 mile run down my favourite street in Vancouver. It was sunny (which is pretty much a miracle here in winter), the birds were chirping and I ran at the speed of light. Okay not exactly, I felt super sluggish during the entire run BUT I pounded out my fastest mile ever on my new garmin (8.56) which made me feel special even though it’s not exactly the 4.34 minute mile my runkeeper app was mistakenly telling me.
Throughout the run I just kept saying “I can” and I swear it helped, I finished anyway, which was an achievement in itself considering how tired I felt.
Then something very exciting happened. I got home and remembered that today was Costco day.
My first ever trip to Costco. I have waited so long for this moment. We don’t have Costco down under and so until now I have been deprived of this beautiful experience. It has been hard.
I have heard many beautiful things about Costco and it pretty much lived up to my expectations, however (brace yourselves people) there were no samples. Maybe we went too early or something? Anyway I got the following three spectacular items (along with a bunch of groceries):
I love the neckline and it was in my price range ($9.50) for clothing so it was a win.
These drink bottles:
I am obsessed with having a decent drink bottle to drink out of and I lost the gorgeous one my bestie gave me (sorry Sally 😦 ) so I am pretty excited about these bad boys. I love the colour which is super important and the lid is badass- it has a nifty opening situation and a handle that you can hook on stuff. No I am not getting paid to say this, I was just super excited about it and thought I would take one for the team and let you all in on the secret.
And this French dictionary:
I am waitressing in French restaurant (more physically demanding than anything I’ve done in my life FYI) to support myself while I’m studying in Sydney, and as the only non French speaker, I have some serious work to do.
After the Costco extravaganza it was time for mini golf.
Rounded off a perfect day with some Dairy Queen. Some veggies along with crazy deliciousness otherwise known as a blizzard hit the spot.
