It's Monday evening already!? Where has the day gone!?
Although I have been at school since 8:30 AM and in class for a non-stop 6 hours, today has definitely been a marvelous one. I guess it makes sense; it is Marvelous Monday after all! ;)
I am so happy to be back at school! Brescia is my home. It is a place where I always feel comfortable, happy, and very me. It is most definitely a place where I know I belong.
Since I've been in class all day, I haven't been snapping pictures of all of the marvelous things occurring around me, but I assure you – I have a ton of marvelous things to share with you on this very marvelous day! A huge thanks to Katie for hosting! :)
My Dad's smile
On Sunday, my parents and I spent the whole day at Canada's Wonderland! I'm not much of a rollercoaster girl so I only went on a few rides, but seeing the smile on my Dad's face when he walked off of the rollercoasters brought me so much joy that my day was still marvelous! :)
One on one time with my Dad
Despite my lack of excitement over rollercoasters, I did go on some rides. Since I'm not afraid of heights, I went on the Windseeker which is a swing ride that is 301 feet high. It was a great ride and gave me the opportunity to view the entire amusement park while chatting with my Dad about what rides we wanted to hit up next!
One on one time with my Mom
While my Dad was being daring on some of the largest rollercoasters I've ever seen, my Mom and I had a chance to hang out. We grabbed a cup of tea from Starbucks and roamed the park. It was a sunny day and we loved having the chance to soak up some rays after completing our long road trip from Saskatchewan!
Some times things happen in life that make my mouth drop in amazement!
Out of all of the people in the world, one of my very best friends that I met while going to school at Brescia just so happened to be at Canada's Wonderland the very same day I was! What's even crazier is that we were lined up for the same ride and didn't expect to see each other! We started squealing and hugging while in line, definitely made a scene, but it was such a precious moment :)
This salmon roll
Have you ever seen something so amazing? Personally, I think the salmon to rice ratio is out of this world. Usually, the piece of salmon inside of a roll is the width of a pencil, but not when you get sushi at Makimono ;) Now this is how every maki roll should be made ;)
My sashimi set (red tuna, white tuna, salmon, surf clam, white fish, and butterfish)
As you can clearly see above, Makimono is an amazing restaurant that serves beautiful sashimi sets, sushi, etc. with generous portions – just the way I like it! It was my first time at Makimono this weekend and I was incredibly impressed! There are a few different locations throughout Ontario, so I highly suggest that if you are in Ontario or near a location that you must go and enjoy some of the best Japanese food you'll ever sink your teeth into :)
I could keep going on and on about all of the marvelous things in my life right now, but I'll finish off with one of the most marvelous things about today.
Just walking into the building of my university gives me chills. I love it so much. Like I said, it is where I belong :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Monday! See you tomorrow!
