Weekly spending recap: July 10th – 16th

The most I’ve spent this last week was on protein bars. I didn’t take out any Fun Money this week as I wanted to compensate for the expensive dinner out last Friday. My only purchase was for 2 protein bars ($6) on the way to run some drills.

Today I am thankful for my wonderful friends. My Eye Candy & I hosted a fun patio party on the weekend and we spent the evening BBQ’ing ribs and sipping mojitos with our friends. When I first moved to Montreal four years ago, there were so many evenings that I was incredibly lonely in my new city; and to think that we now have to split-up the invites simply because our patio is not big enough to host all our friends at once is the best feeling in the world!

Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was teaching Miss Fergie to swim. A heat wave has hit Montreal and while our usual walking route is along the Lachine Rapids, we’ve never let Fergie go in the water more than a few feet. On Saturday afternoon, we decided to indulge her by walking to the pier and jumping in the water with her. Our Norwegian Elkhound is now a water dog and she has a fierce doggie paddle.   

I will consider this week a success if I create an itinerary for a dream vacation. My Eye Candy and I have decided on a few spots that we would like to visit some day so now I want to start planning them out and create a realistic budget.

My favourite summer cocktail is Malibu and Diet Coke. I mixed it up for one friend this weekend and she described it best with “it smells like sunscreen.” You can’t get more summer-y than that!
