October 7, 2014


Yesterday I went out for a couple of errands and so stopped by Value Village, as you do. I found a huge bag of markers and pencil crayons and stuff for $1.99 so just had to dive in! I tested them all and though I threw out the handful on the right, the rest were great, especially the little Crayola Pip Squeaks! I think I ended up with about 50 of them!


This is the *only* picture on my camera for the day, so it was easy to pick which on to share! I think I need to figure out how to get pictures off my phone, because some days that's the way I take pics!


Reg and I got bus day passes and went off to Port Moody. You can see why this was one of the neighbourhoods we REALLY wanted to live in, it's just gorgeous. It was like summer out, so hot. We actually went to go check out a car at a dealership but it wasn't there. It was two more burbs over so we took that as a bad sign, walked to the water and then went back home. I am amazed at how easy and fast it is to get around Vancouver on public transit.

Cute pic, Shannon! You know, if I instagram a picture sometimes I grab it from Facebook (right-click etc.), if that's helpful. Though I'm glad you shared this one. You're both such cuties!

Wow, Suzie, that is truly beautiful. You guys have really moved to a spectacular part of the country - no doubt!

Total score Jamie!!! That's awesome. Love it when that happens.

That is a super cute photo of you and Mr. Man Shannon.

It took two buses and a train to get there but yes, it's gorgeous! Thankfully everything runs very frequently but it was quite the journey. Loved it though. We made very important decisions in our lives there years ago. It was nice to be back.

What a totally awesome creative loot bag of goodness you found at VV Jamie! What a treat to find, and to dive in and test out, so much fun :)

Thanks for the tip re: Pulling instagram from FB. I like that idea!

Wow that is an absolutely gorgeous pic Suzie, and amazing that you can get there by public transport, what a treat! Sorry to hear the car dealership wasn't there, that is a bit weird.

The dealership was there but the car was at a different dealership location, a couple of burbs over.
