Five cheers for Friday

Hello Friday… and hello friends! Here's a list of my five favourites this week.

Best Customer Service EVER.

So, last week it was Nordstrom and this week, it's Bed, Bath and Beyond. i've spoken of my intense love for my Vitamix. Well stupid silly clumsy me accidentally dropped a steel spoon in it while pouring chia seeds into my morning smoothie (let's just say sleep deprivation, morning rush and a crying two year old were involved). THe spoon instantly flew out but the Vitamix stopped working. I troubleshooted it but nothing. When I called Vitamix, they said it would be $243 plus shipping and handling to replace the motor. I didn't commit though as I remember the cashier at Bed Bath and Beyond telling me that they had the best customer service and to bring back anything. So that I did, without the box but with the receipt from two years ago. Guess what? A brand new one is being shipped to me. The manager there told me that it totally makes sense to buy small appliances there with their price matching, 20% off and long exchange/return period! I certainly will from now on!

Basement clean up

Part 1 of my basement clean-up is complete aka New Year's Resolution…. I seriously feel 5 pounds lighter! Part two and some shelves are coming soon.

Quinoa love

I've been a bit obsessed with quinoa these days. My friend Dani made a quinoa salad from some very simple veggies and dressing and I've become so obsessed I made it at home after the leftovers she gave me finished. It is so clean but quite tasty as well! I had it 4 out the 5 days this week. Recipe coming soon!

NYC visit

It's booked! Visiting my family for NYC in June. This visit is fast becoming a summer tradition that was a favourite of mine when I was growing up!

Evening walk

A favourite moment this week for sure. C had violin lessons and D was working late so A and I took a little walk around the violin teacher's neighbourhood for about twenty. We had the most wonderful time walking and chatting about every.little.thing including puppies and plants.

Have a wonderful weekend!
