1. A New (Used) Car
Over the weekend, the hubby and I decided to do a little car shopping just to see what was out there and what we liked for when we decided to trade in our current car. Then yesterday, we became owners of a 2014, preloved Acura MDX from Lougheed Acura. It happened so fast because a car happened to come in the day after we were there, they called us, we got a good deal and the rest is history. I do have to say that Lougheed Acura really went above and beyond to make sure we walked out happy and we’re all pretty excited for our new ride.

2. ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
This week, my husband got nominated for the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. He did it and donated. Our Facebook feeds have been inundated with these videos and did you know that at the latest count, more that $88 million has been raised? That’s amazing and a credit to what social media can do. If you’re interested in how this all started, just a short time a ago and where the money will go, here’s the story.

3. Expensive Watermelons
I was in downtown last week and I had to stop and take a picture when my cousin-in-law pointed out the most expensive watermelon I had ever seen! It was $199 for a square watermelon. Why is it so expensive? Well I’m not exactly sure, but apparently in Japan, novelty high-priced fruit is very common place and is customary to give as gifts on formal occasions. Check out these other crazy, expensive fruits.

  1. Oh I read an article about the watermelons but I never had the opportunity to see one in real life. Appellant, farmers grow the watermelons in kind of like cages to force them into cube shapes. Definitely makes it easier to slice!

  2. Lovely car – and well done to your husband for doing the challenge 🙂

    Hey – what is up with the price of melons? That is just too crazy. lol
