Now that the holiday season is over, I’m totally exhausted, full on cake and would love nothing more than to go pass out but for today’s post, I wanted to share with you guys what I did for my birthday!

Celebrating My 22nd Birthday!
Having a birthday during a Canadian winter can reeeally pose a challenge when it comes to trying to plan something fun and different and to tell you the truth, I can’t remember the last time I had decent weather on my birthday. But, being Canadian…you learn that if you dropped everything every-time the weather was crap, you’d be resigning yourself to live as a hermit. Today happened to be day 1 of a massive blizzard storm rolling into Montreal.
My boyfriend, Robert, had been planning for months to take me for archery lessons because when he asked what I wanted this year, I admitted there wasn’t much I needed – howeveer, archery has been something I’ve wanted to try since I was 10.
Robert found this great little place called Sports Des Combats and booked us a beginner lesson for an affordable price and the instructor we had was so nice! He did a great job of showing us the ropes and explaining how to fix our errors without hovering. We had the lane to ourselves for the most part while he shot his own spiffy looking bow next to us in case we had questions. He had super intimidating skills – but it was also encouraging because I totally want to get there one day!! The instructor even gave us an entire extra hour for free since they happened to not be busy today. Maaaybe braving the storm like crazy people worked in our favor in that case xD
We’re really eager to go back and probably sign up for a membership – maybe make it something we do once a week or every other week! It was such a fun experience, I can’t even tell you!! I like to think I did pretty good for my first time – and I’m even looking into getting my own bow so I can really throw myself into this sport! It was so frustrating / so hilarious at one point because our instructor blew up small balloons and pinned them to our bullseyes to help us practice our accuracy. I got like 4 bullseyes in a row which was great, but kept getting ‘thiiis’ close to the balloon without actually popping it xD
Sports Des Combats has some other actives too like nerf war, knife/axe throwing and a couple other interesting things so it would be fun try one of those!
And overall, that was my birthday celebration!!
. . .
While the day might of had a rocky start thanks to the weather, today turned out to be such an awesome day!! I seriously can’t wrap my head around the fact that I’m officially 22 – it feels unreal. I’m so excited to see what the next years have in store – bring it on 2018, I’m ready!
Be ready for a book haul and a What I Got For My Birthday coming up soon! My girl friends are taking me out for Korean food on Sunday so by Monday I’ll be able to get that up 😀
