3 Things Thursday – Week 26

It’s been a busy week so far, with the teachers strike being over and my son starting Kindergarten, preparing for another blogging conference that I’m heading to very soon and everything else that entails being a mom and working from home. Here’s what I’m sharing this week:

1. I Won!
A few weeks ago, I entered a giveaway on Strolling The City in Heels and guess what, I won! It was for a Runtastic Orbit Kit and I can’t tell you how excited I was! I had been shopping for something that I could wear and would count my steps, calories burned, active minutes and sleep. This does all of that and it fits around my arm like a bracelet. I love it and haven’t taken it off my arm (except to recharge.)


2. First Day of Kindergarten
School is back in session here in British Columbia so Keyan is official starting Kindergarten! We are all excited. His first actual (half) day in class is today and I can’t wait to find out how it goes. But we took the mandatory first day pictures to make sure we captured his big day. A post on my thoughts is coming soon.

3. Chai Chats
Yesterday when I went to check the mail, I had a special package and note from Tea India.

It was perfect timing because I wanted to let you know about a fun Chai Chat video I was invited to be a part of by my friend Raj, who you all know from Pink Chai Living. It was about the importance of making time for girlfriends which I really need to get better at. So check out the video here and make sure to visit Pink Chai Living for your chance to win a Tea India Gift Set for you and a friend!

Those are my 3 Things Thursday this week and now it’s your turn to share. Write up a blog post about 3 things that are on your mind this week. Grab a badge and link up below. Please link back to me or one of my fabulous co-hosts, Pink Chai Living or Love Laugh Mirch. It’s that simple. We can’t wait to here from you.

Happy Thursday!

    Your son looks ADORABLE for his first day of school. Love his little Converse!
    GREAT VIDEO! Now I’m craving some chai!

  2. Salma! How are you? The runtastic looks awesome. How often do you end up looking at it to you know check the calorie count 😉 I think I need to get something similar, since i’m trying to become more active these days. Hope Keyan is enjoying school!

    1. Hey Sanober, it’s so great to hear from you! I doing well thanks. I do check it quite often, especially to help me meet my goal for steps each day, you should get one, it’s really motivating! And It’s been two weeks now and Keyan really seems to be enjoying kindergarten, thanks for asking.

  3. Congrats on the win, how exciting! My daughter is starting kinder this year as well, and while she’s super excited, I’m a bit nervous for her! It will also be my son’s first day of school ever, as he is starting playschool- mommy is feeling a bit sad but happy that the kids will make new friends <3
