3 Things Thursday – Week 49

As I wrote the title of this post, I can’t believe we are at week 49 of #3ThingsThursday! That means in three weeks we will have completed a full year of this link up that I really love! Hmm, maybe that means something special is in store.

But in the meanwhile, this week is a compilation of random happenings in my life that I wanted to share. If you are interested in sharing your three things, you’ll find all the details at the end of this post.


1. Cousins at the Aquarium
My kids don’t have a lot of cousins, so when two of their favourite cousins came into to town, we knew a playdate was in order, away from the hustle and bustle of big family get togethers. We decided the Aquarium was the perfect place to meet and the kids had tons of fun! We explored, watched shows, chatted and ate lunch. We ended up spending almost four hours there! I don’t think the kids even wanted to leave their cousins. Now they are already looking forward to the next visit.

2. Dollar Store Organization

We love the dollar store! It always has lots of great inexpensive things for arts, crafts, trinkets and even organization. I had to share our recent find. We bought this very sturdy, sectioned carry box that was perfect for my kids to store all their Lego mini-figures. They have dividers so you can make the sections as big or as small as you need. This is also perfect for organizing other small toys, jewelry, make-up, nail polish and even your junk drawer in the kitchen. And guess what, it only costs $3!

Escents Aromatherapy
ven though this store has been in Coquitlam Centre forever, I only recently discovered it. I went in on the recommendation of a friend to pick up a natural lice prevention remedy to make sure my kindergartener is protected in case it hits his school. Thirty minutes later I walked out of the store with that plus, leave-in hair conditioner, something for energy and a few samples. The best part is that it’s all-natural and Escents is a Vancouver company! I know I’ll be back to explore again.

  1. I’m a big fan of Escents! I always walk out of there with tons of new scents for my aromatherapy diffuser!

  2. Ah, the joys of being young. All these things are out of my reach. Loved hearing about them though. Those children in the cousins photo remind me of birds sitting on a wire.

  3. I love reading your 3 things, Salma. It reminds me of how thankful you are for the smallest things. The picture of the 4 cousins is so adorable! They DO look like 4 birds of a wire. Take care!

  4. Another fun week for you, always fun to read about it! I love aquariums too…and the odd tie-in with your second share is that it reminds me of my husband’s fishing tackle boxes. $3 is a great price by the way! Those look like great hair supplies too…I love trying out new things like that. I want to link up and do 3 Things Thursday some time! This has been an incredibly busy week but it’s on my mind for some day in the future when time permits 🙂
