The Hood!

What are your favourite places to frequent in your home town?
Where do you hang out?
Do you do Starbucks?
Are you often found out at the greenhouses?
Why do I ask, you ask?
Well, Centsational Girl is hosting a neat link-up!
She’s asking what your favourite things in your home town are.
Here is a little tour of my favourite thangs

Hands down, this is my most fave place to be.

Mmmm, it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte time!  Whoot!
This is our local greenhouse.
Love it here!
They make the most amazing Saskatoon Tarts.

And for a little romance, our River Cafe.
Can’t leave out a Canadian favourite!  Our neighbourhood Tim Horton’s.
Mmmm.  Honey Dip.
(my life seems to be centered around food doesn’t it…hmm…)
We love our local parks for all the amazing bike trails.
In here it feels like we’ve left the city.
Smells like the mountains.  Love….
Our little local U-Pick.
So fun to pick your own produce for dinner!

And our zoo, where the gorillas have a cheeky sense of humour!
And lastly our community lake.
We spend a lot of time here both in summer and winter!
Thanks for hanging out with me!
I’m also linking up to Life Rearranged!

    Love this post…
    I don’t go back to my hometown too often. Everyone has moved away 🙁 and my childhood home was torn down. But there are so many things I miss, I should take a drive up sometime soon to visit though because it’s a beautiful small New England town.

    Not gonna lie: food is one of the best things in life. And now I want a doughnut.

    I love this peek into life in your Canadian town. It’s great that you get to enjoy so many outdoor activities.

    I love the style of your home! It’s got great character.
