You know what makes me a little sad?
Knowing that I probably won’t be able to live comfortably in the lower mainland any time soon.
If you’ve been following my blog posts you know that I was born and raised in Langley.
My family lives there, (most of) my friends live there, everything I know is there.
I always knew going into the broadcast industry I would have to move away and I have, here to this amazing city and although I love it here, my heart is belongs to Langley—I miss the smell of manure in the air 😉
Coming up here has really opened my eyes in so many ways, one of those being just how much more affordable the housing market is here compared to in Vancouver.
It is a bit heart breaking to feel like you can’t go back home because it’s unobtainable for you financially.
Any who, I will not bore you with my predicament, instead I will tell you about where I went on Sunday, let’s get started.
CHBA Parade of Homes
The Nechako View Subdivision is an absolutely beautiful neighbourhood.
The idea of having open houses and letting people come in to gain inspiration for their home renovations or home construction is really cool!
I know for sure if I was building a house, I would have appreciated this event!
The streets were full of people viewing the homes after enjoying a nice free pancake breakfast!
I also really enjoyed being able to take a stroll through the Hospice Prize Home which was absolutely GORGEOUS!
My goodness, there was so much natural light in the beautiful house, which I am a HUGE fan of!
My favourite part of the ENTIRE house must have been the doors, this one in particular.
It’s a barn door that connects from the kitchen/entrance of the house to the laundry room and garage.
I spoke to the builder about it and he said I had expensive taste because it was a pricey door—what can I say? I love pretty things.
If you want a chance to enter the draw to win the house you still can as the draw isn’t until October 26th!
I believe you can go to Superstore and Costco and enter to win the…but don’t quote me on that.
Tickets are $100, you can quote me on that and you can buy them online!
Live Love North Fall Small Business Fair
It’s a good thing I don’t bring my wallet to these events because I would be more broke than I already am if I did.
I was so happy to see just how big the turn out was! The place was bustling with life!
There were so many people shopping around, probably starting their Christmas shopping!
It’s great to see so many people coming out to support local businesses I love it! Keep it up PG!
Public Skate and Bookstore at Roll a Dome
I’ve never been roller skating.
I think I went roller blading like 5 times when I was young…but I haven’t ever put on skates and I have no idea why because it looks like so much fun!
It’s great seeing kids and adults come out to enjoy the sport!
Lastly if you haven’t checked out the by donation book store on the second floor at Roll a Dome make sure that you do!
Al says it’s open as long as he’s there an he mentioned that he’s there quite often, so drop by when you can!
Thank you for a lovely weekend back after one of eating (vegan) turkey back home!
Have a great, evening, day or night—depending on when you’re reading this!
See you next weekend PG!
