It’s Saturday, and the official countdown to my birthday has begun! Okay, that’s a lie, I’ve been counting down since Wednesday because I feel like a 7 day count down is totally appropriate and not annoying at all for someone turning 33 🙂
I have a busy weekend ahead of me with two races (that I certainly won’t be “racing”), lunch with girlfriends today, and my first ever Surf Set class tomorrow. I’m so excited!
Before I share links, I do want to share a way for you to help donate to the Fort McMurray fires. Stella and Dot is donating all net proceeds of the sale of this bracelet to the Red Cross, but only until tomorrow! If you buy a bracelet through my Stella & Dot site, I will also donate $5 for each order to the Red Cross. As my donation is a personal donation, it will be matched by my employer, the Federal Government, and the Alberta Government.
Now on to some more fun and lighter links 🙂
