A Couple of Couples


This week has been crazy! I have a couple posts almost ready to go but haven’t had time to actually sit down & fully edit them.  It always seems to be that way leading up to vacation, as I try to wrap up loose ends. But this week has been especially bad, with N flying back & forth between Calgary & Northern Alberta. The final countdown is on though, as we board a plane for La Manzanilla, Mexico tomorrow morning. Most things are wrapped up at work & we’re seeing Brad Paisley tonight with friends. Vacation brain is on in full force.

A couple weeks ago, we went for dinner at Parc Bistro with Jenna & Mike from A Couple of Couples. If you haven’t checked out their blog, I highly recommend it. It’s such a great idea! Our post is online this week, so I wanted to share it with all of you.

If you haven’t already heard, they’ve also got their hand in some board game-related meet-ups around town. We’re avid board-gamers, so we’ve been going to the monthly Thursday one (we’ll be away this month, sadly!). It’s been so successful that they’ve launched a meet-up at a coffee shop & another restaurant. I think it’s brilliant! It’s a great opportunity to meet new people & try out new games. David has the largest collection I’ve ever seen, so there’s something for everyone.

That’s all I’ve got for you today. Just a quick little post to point you in the direction of some cool happenings around town. I clearly think you should join us for some board games, or my other obsession: Wednesday Night Adult Gymnastics (sounds intimidating, but I swear it’s the best. Do it!).

Home Sweet Home


  1. Thank you so much for the post! You will be missed next Thursday, but it sounds like you will be having a ton of fun anyhow!! A great 2p game that can be played while relaxing in the sand is Hive. (you can get the smaller version – Hive Pocket – to fit on the plane as well!
    Safe travels!

    • I always look forward to the end of the month for games night! I’m really excited for our trip: we’ve got a big group going so we’ve packed Avalon, Coup, & Masquerade, but Hive sounds awesome! I’ll have to check it out. Thanks, David! 🙂
