Weekend Recap

Monday, November 28, 2011

Friends!  So, how was your weekend? Did you get up to much?  The kids didn't have school on Friday, so we had a long weekend, which is always nice.

Thought I'd do a little weekend recap with the help of instagram!

Here we go....

We woke up to a good amount of snow on Saturday, it was a nice treat!

The kids and I decided to make some delicious sugar cookies on Saturday.  It was pretty darn messy, but so much fun!  I couldn't find the recipe that I normally use, so I gave this one from Allrecipes a try, they are good!

And the weekend wouldn't be complete with a little holiday movie watching now would it?  This is by far one of my fav holiday movies, I absolutely love it and this is definitely one of my favourite scenes!  Can you guess the movie?


Behind the Scenes

I wouldn't be surprised if I'm the only one who hasn't already seen this video since it has over 800,000 views...but incase you haven't seen it either I wanted to share it with you.

It's about the unbelievably talented Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist.  I really enjoyed watching it and getting the "behind the scenes glimpse" of how he works, hope you enjoy it too!

What a statement, right?

I am now the proud owner of a new pair of amazingly gorgeous red patent leather heels. Oh my word, I didn't realize I would love them this much.

My Christmas party outfit is nearly complete, I now am on the hunt for the perfect clutch.  The shoes arrived at my doorstep yesterday and I quickly tore into the box.  They didn't have any shoes in the store I went to, so I had to order them in.  I was worried that they wouldn't be the right shade of red, but all my worries were out the window the minute I saw the shoes.

Take a peek:

Aren't they lovely?

A few of you lovelies guessed the dress that I have chosen.  I'm so glad I bought it when I did because it is now "temporarily unavailable" online.  Phew, that would have been bad!

Here is the dress I'll be wearing:

I'm beyond excited to get all dressed up.  Christmas parties are always so much fun and I'm sure this year will not dissapoint.

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend.

Move Over!

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Well, was that a quick month or what?!  Hello and goodbye October, my oh my!

I apologize for the lack of posts this past week, it's been a busy one.  How are you all doing? Did you enjoy a fun Halloween?  We had a blast! I absolutely love getting the kids all ready to go out trick or treating with Dad and then staying home to hand out candy....that's our ritual.  It's such a treat to see all of the kids all dressed up and enjoying going door to door and then welcoming our trio back home and going through all that they kindly received!

Here are a few pictures from Halloween at our place.

And well, I have to admit that I'm totally excited that it's now November.  November is the official kick off to the Christmas season here at our house, so why not begin by hanging the wreath on the front door?!  Ahhh, yes.

Don't forget that you can pick up some unique and festive holiday notecard sets as well as gift tags in the shop!
