what i wore - snuggles, adventering & work

Summer is here!
It's very exciting.
For some reason, summer doesn't seem to arrive until kiddos are out of school.
(In Canada this is the first week of holidays for kiddos)
Although I have been done for two months and have two months left
it seems like the break is just starting now.

You may have noticed I don't really do the picture a day, in a mirror outfit posts.
I just find everyday life pictures are more fun.
So here are some get up from this past week.

we went exploring through the fields and looking at all the flood damage. we are walking on water in this picture. it just shows how much debris there is.

good morning sweet pea! ha i love the look that she is giving me.

good sunny morning!

Good morning !!

How about some fresh homemade ice tea... it tastes like sunshine!

So glad that you have popped over today. We would most definitely be sitting outside in the front yard soaking up the sun while we chat. I just can't get enough sun, the warmth is the best. It feel like a hug from God.

If you were over this morning I would tell you about the great time I had this weekend at home {pictures to come} my mom had a great 40th birthday bash. Surrounded by tons of great friends and family. There was a ton of laughter! it was great.

What did you do for the weekend? Low key? Busy?

Oh my you must see these beauties!

I love peonies, they are so beautiful.

Also the music that I would have playing in the back ground would be Jacob & Lily.

Have a great day!

If you wish to share a discount code add it to your name spot.
I will also pick a shop to showcase next Saturday.

Thankful Thursday {2} a link up

Good morning friends!

I trust that you will have a fantastic day!

Today for Thankful Thursday I would like to share about my momma! With it being her birthday this week I thought I'd share about her a bit.

This is my sister, momma and me. They came to visit me while I was in collage last year.
My momma is a wonderful lady and I love her much!
She's kinda a little bit crazy (I come by it honestly) and I love that about here. It's always a fun time to be had when with her. We dance in the kitchen, and talk in weird voices, people looking in often wonder about us. I love that about her.My momma is one of my besties and I'm truly blessed to have her as my momma.


Link up what you are thankful for here.

sushi, pools & popcorn

Good morning dear friends!
How are ya doing this fine morning?
I will have a latte with cinnamon lightly sprinkled on top.
What are you having this morning?

Over coffee today I would be kinda on the giddy side because last night was date night! We headed to the city and had copious amounts of yummy sushi! It's kind of a date night must.first off sushi pizza?! what?! and i thought that the crabmeet was pretty funny.
Also if you are ever at a lose of what to do on a hot afternoon with kids, or kids at heart... kiddie pools are great!
especially when you try and get them to get their face wet by showing them how to do the motor boat.
Last night we looked around sugar mountain, which is an old train car turned into a candy shop! Super fun! And looky what I found! I thought pink popcorn had gone extinct. I never really liked the stuff but it still brings back memories.

Also I am now playing words with friends, if you play too start a game with me Abranconier. You will be sure to win because spelling is not my forte... at all.

Lastly be on the look out this week as I will be celebrating having 100 followers (better late than never right?)

ma new earring holder

On my thifting adventures this past weekend I found the perfect hoop and fabric! I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. And so my new earring holder was born. Now I can see them sitting there looking pretty. It was the simplest little project and instant gratification! Just what I like.


Check out my giveaway going on right now!

a weekend of wonderful

This weekend was full of wonderful! On Saturday I made the little journey to my friends place and we had a blast. It just so happened to be the fair in town so we had fun walking around looking at all the little shops. Jana bought some sweet vintage scarves from this adorable shop.
oh so lovely vintage
Of course we hit up the thrift store. I found some great vintage fabrics and other crafty bits. This sugar and creamer set put a smile on my face.
After waltzing about for a while we wanted to stop for a little snack, however fair food is not really our thing, so we stopped in for some yummy sushi!After a walking around and soaking up some rays we headed home to cool down with some lemonade (made by sweet Elyn) and some ice tea.
The weather was just to beautiful to be inside we relaxed in hammocks under a beautiful canopy of leaves.For supper we had the most scrumptious beautiful picnic.
It was the most lovely day! A treasure in my memory bank. I love you dear Jana, thanks for being my friend.
