Birthday Shenanigans & Happy Days

by Meg on June 23, 2014

Well, if this weekend wasn’t marvelous… I don’t know what is!


Last Thursday I told you a bit of a lie…

I said I wouldn’t be able to go home this year for my birthday, but that was a cover up to a very big surprise that my parents and I pulled off Thursday evening!


My parents flew me home for my birthday! I arrived in Saskatchewan Thursday evening, but Eddie had no idea…


It was such a great surprise and my Mom caught it all on video! If you haven’t seen the video of the surprise yet, watch it here! :D

Now that I’m back at home my life feels over the top happy again. I cannot wait until I am here for good! Only another week and a half!

Since all I can think is happy thoughts lately, I thought I’d update you on how the #100HappyDays Challenge I am participating in is going!

I am really so happy (<- see I can’t stop using that word!)  that I started this challenge. It encourages me to see the good in every situation and focus on all of the positives. So, I would highly recommend starting this challenge today if you’re feeling like you need a little more happy in your life! :D

Now, an update on days 42 – 48!

Day 42 – My friend Holly

Day 43 – The grilled seafood salad at Milestones


Day 44 – My hair stylist Shannon


Day 45 – Surprising Eddie


Day 46 – Being at home for my birthday

Day 47 – Grilling dinner with Eddie


Day 48 – Having breakfast with Eddie (guess which one is mine ;) )


Honestly, this weekend has been amazing and it is just what I needed to get me through this last week of school before I move home for good :D

What has been making you happy lately? 

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Love always,

Meg xo

What kind of birthday dessert did you have? My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up and we eat paleo, so I’m in the market for a healthy birthday cake idea! Happy belated birthday!! <3
