Midweek Randoms

Happy Wednesday!
  • This idea is awesome. Some malls in the GTA need this badly.
  • I finished reading The Smart One by Jennifer Close this week. Really liked the book! If you haven't noticed, I love reading so please send me any book recommendations!

The Smart One

  • I may or may not have watched the Teen Choice Awards Monday night. I didn't even know who half of the presenters/award winners were. I'm not sure why I am shocked by this as it is the teen choice awards not the I am almost 28 choice awards. I was also taken back by some of the outfit selections such as the below:

Oh Miley..
  • I randomly watched the Rogers Cup on tv this past weekend. It's a tennis tournament here in Toronto/Montreal and is quite large. You get all the "big name" tennis players. I am not a tennis player at all, nor do I follow it but I think it's sometimes enjoyable to watch. While watching it, I realized I had completely forgotten that about 4-5 years ago, my dad, brother and I got tickets and saw Maria Sharapova play. It was pretty cool and a really neat experience!
          Do you watching and/or play tennis?

  • Is it sad that I am already excited for our next long weekend in 3 weeks?! Woohoo!
  • Perhaps I am a little behind in times but since when have kids backpacks have built in hoods? When I first saw this in a flyer this week I thought it was such a silly idea but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it's actually an amazing idea!! How practical is that?

Enjoy the rest of your week!


  1. I went to York, lived by York and I had a friend that worked for the Rogers Cup. So, I got in for free one year. I didn't actually watch much of the game but it was fun to be there!

    The parking idea, with the balloons, is interesting. But, I don't think it would work here because we have too many disrespectful people in this city that would either damage or steal the balloons. Interesting concept for sure though!

    1. Totally agree. People are silly and would pop the balloons etc. I think if it was a more permanent thing, then it could potentially work. Who knows :)

  2. If you love to read..have you tried the Goodreads app? I love it! I can totally watch tennis but only if I happen on it, not a die hard or anything. ;)

    1. I think I tried it a while back but couldn't stick with it. I should try it again!

  3. A backpack with a hood could be convenient! Especially in college when you get stuck walking in inclimate weather!
