SLEEPOVER AT NANA’S {Wordless Wednesday}

{WORDLESS WEDNESDAY} almost; my dad and brother joined aboard a fishing trip in Tofino planned by my cousins 2 weekends ago… and this is when our GRAND plans started to form. Plans for an EPIC sleepover at Nana’s house while the men were out of town. PLAY was the name of the game, and upon arrival that was clear as day. The jeep was charged and ready for a joyride, pools were filled waiting to be splashed in, water guns anticipating owners, the living room riddled with baby toys and mini cribs setup ready for nap time. The day was as fun as it was delicious, fully loaded nachos for […]

Our Christmas {wordless wednesday}

{WORDLESS WEDNESDAY} almost; Christmas has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go back and reminisce about the disgusting amount of cookies I consumed and Sofia’s faces as she opened her mortgage payment… I mean Hatchimal. YOU GUYS! what a fun Christmas we had. As tradition has it, our family spent the night at my parents where we appetizer-ed out for dinner, opened our Christmas Eve box filled with new jammies, Finding Dori Monopoly and treats galore. We put cookies (the ones I didn’t like), milk and carrots under the Christmas Tree for Santa and wrote him a threatening sweet little letter and slept with our stockings at the foot of our beds. It was […]

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: Busy New Mom Edition

{WORDLESS WEDNESDAY} almost; I’ll keep it quick! Our lives are the strangest form of busy these days. Busy doing a whole lotta’ nothing; I either have a baby latched on getting in her many-oh meals a day, or I’m stuck under a sleeping baby and I dare not move a muscle. Tough getting much of anything done, and it’s another reason why I am loving the concept behind Wordless Wednesday. Means I can get some content on the site, gush over some adorable cell phone pictures I’ve been snapping and likely would never have shared and of course I’m getting the feeling of being social with my peeps because gawd knows […]

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: Birthday Edition

    {WORDLESS WEDNESDAY} well almost wordless; a cake like this and a face like that can’t go without some explaining. It’s no surprise Lindsay and I like to spoil one another, it’s not very often you find a best-friend that is as close to a twin sister as you’ll get; she literally completes me. This past week I had my birthday and though it was fairly low-key (Sofia caught a bug), we stayed in making the most of our Netflix subscription and had special visits from my mama and nana over the course of 3-days. It wasn’t until this past weekend that I actually got a moment […]

{nearly} WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

We all know how good I am at keeping it short, if you’ve ever sat down to one of my stories you’ll know. Let’s just say that we will keep things “shorter” than usual with today’s Wordless Wednesday. A few weeks back, Sofia and I had the opportunity to attend (and dine) at The Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. during one of their Mom & Tot DIY Herbal Salves classes with EarthBites. We learnt a lot, I mean a TON, thank goodness for the teacher, Aboriginal Herbalist Lori Snyder who took the time to write everything out for us to take home in note form. We walked out […]

{nearly} Wordless Wednesday

Outfit Details// Old Navy Vest (similar), Joe Fresh Sweater (similar), Joe Fresh Jeans (on clearance), Target Boots Wordless is not really my thing, if anyone knows me they know I am far from quiet. I do however love the idea of getting away with a picture heavy post, and this is why we take part in Wordless Wednesday. Ours though, we would prefer to call nearly Wordless Wednesday because yeah, it’s what it is. I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.   -anne of green gables Pumpkin patchin’ with the school is what we got up to last week and boy was it […]

{nearly} Wordless Wednesday

I suck at “keeping it short”, that or successfully using the phrase “I’ll make a long story short” and so we’re keeping it real and saying this is nearly a wordless Wednesday. It’s a photo heavy post just like your wordless Wednesday people like it but with a short little backstory. That’s fair right? We celebrated Sofia Marie’s Birthday over the weekend as her real day was yesterday, falling on a Tuesday, we did the obvious thing and had her parties on a Sunday. One of the events was in the afternoon at her most favorite places to make art, 4Cats Art Studio, and all in attendance were her very best […]

{wordless} Wednesday

We arrived through the gates by 11am and didn’t wave our goodbyes until nearly 9pm. This was the first time for some real fun at our local amusement park (Playland) with Sofia Marie. We went last year but she was still young and rides were still daunting, so this year Sammy and I were really looking forward to our annual visit to PNE. We rode every ride we could and a few of our favorites (like the motorcycle and the super slide) saw our excited faces a few 5 times. We ate all the unhealthy things, mini donuts, cotton candy, perogies, grilled cheese, french fries, fish tacos, and […]

{wordless} Wednesday

A major family gathering for an extremely important celebration; my Nana’s 90th Birthday. The weekend was spent on the Sunshine Coast, in Powell River parking it, literally at Willingdon Beach Campground. We rocked the grounds with non-stop music, laughing and some Grade A entertainment. Just like the good ‘ol days, a performance put on by the kids, a little different from when I remember doing peter cotton tail with the cousins, but just as fun, this time we nailed Silento’s Watch Me {Nae-Nae}. Epic. That’s all I can say. Simply EPIC. #bestfamilyagirlcouldaskfor

{WORDLESS} Wednesday; Father’s Day Edition

  FATHER’S DAY was all that and more, we woke to showering Sammy with gifts (local honey, his favorite chocolate bars, and a handmade gift from the heart). We then ventured out to the park where my parents had setup shop for the day. Had lunch, played at the park, and headed home for a BBQ dinner. What did you do this past Sunday?
