This is my 2nd year joining my co-worker, Harleen’s, Run for the Cure team “Breasties”. My co-worker has gone through breast cancer and a whole slew of other things in her life the past 5 years (since I’ve known her) and maybe more.
Today was a day full of activities!
Went to the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company factory to get some shortbread cookies for my co-worker. These are by far my favourite shortbread cookies!
From there we went and spent time at Hakuna Bay. This, I remember being, where I filmed a time lapse of the sun setting. It’s nice to go earlier in the afternoon and spend some time in the water.
10:25am – I was out the door and in the car as my brother in law, Anthony, drove me to YVR airport. My flight was at 1:59pm, but I prefer arriving a little early to get through security and just settle and maybe grab a bite to eat.
Luckily, by having a Nexus card, I breezed through the security line-up quite easily. It took a total of maybe 7 minutes (?) Not long at all! I almost forgot my Toronto Blue Jays hat because I breezed through security so easily!
Backstreet’s back ALRIGHT! Second time seeing them in (maybe) 3 or 4 years??? With MUCH better seats and a MUCH better experience since the first time I saw them perform I was at the very top of the stadium and near the railing. It was so low, I thought I would fall over from singing and dancing.
They played ALL the classics that I still listen to on my “Throwback Playlist” I made on Spotify. It was EPIC!
I finally made it to Elfin Lakes! My friend, Adrian, has been trying to get me to make it out there for the past year!
It was a good test for me as I started doing kickboxing at the start of this year and I wanted to improve my strength and conditioning. It’s an 11km hike (there and back), in total 22km.
I have to thank my friend Lindsey (http://lindseyblane.com) for asking if I wanted to be her +1 to go see STARS at the Vogue Theatre. I haven’t seen this band perform since Rifflandia 5 years ago! (photos here). Lindsay was there taking photos of the show and I stood right next to the sound station in the back. Continue reading
