#100HappyDays Continued – Days 216 – 222

Some of you may have noticed that I missed last week’s happy day photos. No, I have not stopped taking my photos, rather we were just away enjoying a long weekend mini vacation. Which meant I was busy enjoying a very happy weekend and of course taking tonnes of happy photos. In fact, I took so many photos that I have struggled to pick my favourite happy moment from each day.  Anyways, here are the photos I should have posted last Sunday.  And, as an added bonus, I will post this week’s happy day photos tomorrow when I will return to my regular schedule.

As always, I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.

Day 216 – February 7, 2015: After enjoying fresh guacamole at a Mexican restaurant a few days ago with friends, we decided to try making some at home. We had a fun chopping up the vegetables, mixing everything up and we were definitely happy as we ate it.

Day 217 – February 8, 2015: I discovered the near magical benefits of wrapping my high ankle sprain in a tensor bandage today – I felt about 1000 times better almost instantly and was even able to complete my full lower-body workout! This was definitely a happy moment!

Day 218 – February 9, 2015: We knew this would be a busy week, so I decided to make a giant slow-cooker full of venison chili. And as a treat I picked up a loaf of sourdough bread (I love sourdough bread and rarely buy it because it’s not particularly healthy). The chili was good, but I think I ate more of the delicious bread then the chili!

Day 219 – February 10, 2015: Tonight we packed up all our winter toys for our weekend away. I’m getting excited!!

Day 220 – February 11, 2015: We enjoyed a relatively quick blast of winter today, and I was so struck by the beauty the lightly snow/ice covered tree in our front yard that I bundled up and went outside to snap a few pictures.

Day 221 – February 12, 2015: Winter weekend get-a-way! We flew to Vancouver, British Columbia and started enjoying immediately. First stop, Granville Island to buy wild sockeye salmon and salmon jerky. Granville Island is one of my absolute favourite places on earth, and I love wondering aimlessly taking in all the sights and sounds. I chose this photo as my happiest one because I love how this bench at a bus stop looks today, and how it will likely never look exactly like this again.  Creativity at its finest.

Day 222 – February 13, 2015: No Friday the thirteen blue for us. We spent the day wondering around the Whistler village with our friends. My happiest moment of the day was an afternoon stop at the Amsterdam Pub (our favourite pub in Whistler) for a few drinks (blueberry tea and amaretto for the girls and a local beer for the guys), some great conversation and some fun people watching. We all had so a great time!

  1. As much as I’ve complained about our winter weather, it is beautiful. The ice makes the trees look like they’re covered in diamonds. Glad you had a fun mini vacation!


  2. Your tree is beautiful! I’m so glad you had a fun weekend away!! We haven’t really been able to do that in a while, and with the weather lately I’m not sure when we will. Love your happy moments 🙂


    • We had so much fun. Typically if we go away in the winter we try to go somewhere really warm, but this year we just didn’t want to do something so expensive. So a weekend in Whistler was a more affordable perfect escape. And it was pretty nice that some of our friends came with us. 🙂

    • I’ll make it again and write down the recipe to share it with everyone. It’s so easy, makes the whole house smell delicious and it’s really just yummy!
      And I’ll use it as an excuse to buy another loaf of delicious crack bread? Mr. MPB can eat the chili and I’ll eat the bread. 🙂

  3. Granville Island is also my absolute favourite place too. As kids, we used to buy seeds and feed them to the pigeons along the waterfront. Now, as an adult, I have a totally different experience there. My birthday post for DW has a picture of us at Bridges. It looks like you’ve had an amazing week!

    • We used to do the exact same thing as kids whenever we were in Vancouver visiting family. And, I loved the kids market because you could go through the little door!
      You are so right, my experience no as an adult is so much different, but I am also incredibly excited to watch my kids experience Granville Island in the same way I did. 🙂
      And yes, we had an awesome long weekend. More pictures are coming tomorrow.

  4. Amazing. I love the bench with Beatles lyrics. You have a knack for capturing moments! These posts always remind me that there are so many special and profound moments in our busy lives. Glad you had a fun getaway!


    • I’m so happy you enjoyed them Edith! I keep taking one a day because they also remind me of the simple happy moments that I so often overlook in my daily life. In a way they are forcing me to slow down and enjoy the small things. 🙂

  5. Granville Island is one of my favourite places on earth too. My friend and I have several requisite pit stops in the market in particular. I also love shopping for art supplies at Opus. The rats on the rocks below are about the only thing that made me cringe but they haven’t been there the last few summers when I’ve gone. I don’t know what that means and prefer not to think about it. So glad you’re still taking and posting pics!


Thoughts? I love hearing from you!
