Roomies bday wormsinmud potatoes steak asparagus mashed fpan boyfdinner cardsThis post is definitely late, my birthday was almost 3 weeks ago on the fifth of March. For the last few weeks I’ve been working so much that I haven’t found much time for myself, let alone sit down and write a blog post. But here we are and I’m glad I found the time to put in some updates!

In 9 days time I’ll be moving into a new apartment and away from the two girls I’ve lived with for nearly a year. It’s bittersweet. I’m excited to decorate a new place and get out of a house that has leaks, drafts, mice and paper thin walls. But I’m sad to leave these two wonderful women and the birthday dinner they made me really made me realize this. There was balloons, wine, spaghetti with vodka sauce, garlic toast and the piece de resistance, Worms in Dirt! I loved it.

But this was actually one of three special dinners I had over my week long b-day celebration. On the evening of my actual birthday my Aunt and Uncle made me an array of delicious pizzas, followed by my Moms wonderful carrot cake and a showering of beautiful gifts from my family. Then, on the Saturday following, Neal and I got together and cooked up a steak to celebrate our combined birthdays (they’re 5 days apart). It was fantastic to have a low key b-day this year, I felt so much love and had so much stress free fun!

I had a bunch of fun making my first gif for this post! The large selection of photos I had of my boyfriends buddy photo bombing my shots made it hard to choose, so I didn’t! I hope it doesn’t give you a headache (you might have to click on it to make it work). One more post and then we’re fini for the weekend!

Festival Du Voyageur is a ten day festival held every February in Winnipeg’s francophone neighbourhood. There’s french music, food and drink, as well as mazes, tobogganing, sleigh rides, ice sculptures and various competitions (more on that later). This was the first year in recent memory where I’ve made time to see as much of Festival
