Sunday Snaps: Fully Vaccinated Edition!

From brand new bikes and months, to vaccines and ice cream, this has been a whirlwind of a week!!

Kawaii face mask, bowl of ice cream, and a I'm COVID-19 Vaccinated sticker!

I found myself taking lots of pictures and thought it would be a good time to bring back Sunday Snaps on this blog as it’s just a fun way of capturing little moments in my life that Instagram doesn’t always cover. When I started this blog it was with the full intent of sharing fun “week in the life” posts frequently, and I haven’t been overly consistent I’ll admit ~ but it’s time to bring some happy fun times back!

Can you believe it’s JULY? Half of this year has zipped by!

Work was b-u-s-y BUSY!!! I’m still working from home so I didn’t really have much of a chance to get up from my desk at all as it was end of quarter in the corporate world. Genuinely felt like Aggretsuko most of the time. Perhaps I should take up heavy metal ;).

Accomplished a lot so I did end up splurging on myself and bought a BIKE! This is Amelia Pedalia the Cruiser and I’m in love!

I spent ALL DAY Thursday, which was a day off here in Canada, putting her together. Hopefully some fun cruises down the street will help me calm down a bit on the stressful days.

I was able to squeeze in some very early morning exercise and met up with my good pal – Licorice von Boots the Cat! He happily accepted some scratches.

And spotted this little sweetie in the forest! Mama was watching me closely and I kept my distance of course. Little baby was curious.

Today I got my second dose of COVID vaccine (Moderna).

I haven’t really been out at all during the pandemic, so I don’t usually get to get to put together outfits as much anymore so dressing up a bit was FUN!

Had a craving for ice cream before I left, so I threw on an ice cream brooch and my absolutely adorable Loungefly Pokemon Ice Cream bag! A couple of people complimented how cheery I looked so I thought that was fun!

I got it from EBGames (Gamespot in the US)!

I didn’t have any side effects with the first dose of the vaccine, so fingers crossed for the same thing this time. Feeling great so far!

I’m looking forward to many more adventures in a couple of weeks when I can safely get out.

Until next time, Erika! xoxo

What’s been blooming with me in May!

Hard to believe a whole month has passed in just a BLINK! Here’s one of my monthly catchup posts to see what I was up to, and some of my favourites for the month!

I’ve been spending a lot of time catching up on my 2020 mood blanket! As a recap, it WAS to be knit a square a day to match my mood for last year. Life got a bit loopy naturally, and I dropped the project for a bit. It’s over 3/4 done now, and I should be able to ACTUALLY finish it in a few weeks!!

I have SO many other projects I really want to get to (need to get back on track with the craft everyday thing!), but I’m focused on getting my rainbow on and done first.

Celebrated Mother’s day virtually again! My parents live out of province anyways, but we’re under really tight lockdown restrictions in Manitoba at the moment so no in person hugs. YET!

Came across this picture of me and mom many, many years ago. 🙂 Her hair is a perm here which is funny because it’s my exact real hair. Who would’ve known?!

Made delicious cinnamon rolls for World Baking Day on May 16th! I used the Easy Cinnamon Rolls recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, but swapped out the dairy and eggs for vegan equivalents and dumped in a pile of sprinkles. They were absolutely FABULOUS!!

The weather is really heating up outside and the cherry blossom and deer friends have come to play! Trying to sneak out every chance I get and capture moments like THESE:

Sugar the kitty had a big scare in the middle of the month and nearly ate string from box packaging. I was able to pull it out of her mouth (in consultation with a vet) and she’s 100% okay and happy as can be. But they were some of the most terrifying days of my life. Will be doing a post to share the scary “tail”!

Hug and love your sweet pets constantly! <3

And lastly, the biggest moment of the month – well year! – I got VACCINATED! I am looking forward to getting my second shot in the next few weeks, and then plenty of hugs and happiness to come!

If you haven’t yet, please get your shot to help others. It takes only a couple of minutes and then we’ll soon be back to doing what we love with the people we love.

By the way, these super kawaii masks are from Blippo Kawaii Shop! :3

Now for some favourite things this month:

What I’ve been watching: I’ve been on a Star Trek kick! Every couple of years I started from THE BEGINNING with The Original Series (the one with good ol’ Captain Kirk for all of the non-Trekkies) and attempting to do a full walkthrough of the series while I’m still working from home. I am, in fact, a gigantic geek. 🙂

Eating: Two Rivers Flavoured Coffee Pods for Keurig from Amazon & homemade Cinnamon Buns

Video Games: New Pokemon Snap for Switch! The original Pokemon Snap for N64 was one of my favourites as a kid, and this is a modernized take. The graphic are absolutely stunning, and has many hours of gameplay. It’s a good game to pick up for just a couple of minutes a day to focus and relax. If you enjoy Pokemon games and collecting, it’s incredibly fun.

That’s all for now! I’m off to enjoy the great outdoors. xox
