Weekly Roundup: Giveaways, Flashdrives and Sweatpants

Good morning Dinks and happy Friday. Well, I am back from my weekend in New York City and I have been for almost a week. I have to say that I am still a little bit sad. I love New York City so much and I always get a little bit sad every time I come home. That’s why I try to hang out in NYC as often as my schedule – and bank account – permit.

Do you have a favourite city?

Today is the start of a long weekend up here in Canada and I am so excited. Having an extra day off in the week makes a huge difference in my life, in my attitude, in my sleep and of course in my relationship.

I love having an extra full day to spend with my boyfriend Nick. Of course we do have the weekends together but having that extra one day off lets us just sleep in and spend the day doing whatever we want – usually we spend it in our pjs. A long weekend is an extra day to spend together, without having to run errands and without watching sports all day – which is how my boyfriend usually spends his Sundays.

A long weekend is also a great way to take a weekend road trip.  Once again an extra free day is just enough time to get in the car and drive to your favourite closest city.

What is your favourite way to spend a long weekend?

I’m not sure I have a favorite city at this point, maybe if I traveled more and got a better feel for various cities. We have a long weekend next weekend and I plan on spending it relaxing, though I could see how I might end up spending a lot of time working around the house.

If it’s a city here in the States it would be a toss up for me between San Diego and Chicago depending on what mood I was in. In terms of internationally, it would be Vienna.

Happy Victoria Day Weekend mates! I’m heading out to some garage sales with the wife then spending time with our friends for a BBQ. Have fun and enjoy!

My favorite thing to do is to play a lot of guitar with friends and by myself and then chill with my amazing wife.
