Thankful

Have you ever felt truly blessed? An overwhelming feeling of joy has come into my life since I have meet these ladies. They have brought me so much laughter and happiness. They have taught me so much about myself, and how to love one another immensely. Not a day goes by that I don’t have a conversation with one of them. Sometimes serious conversations, but usually pretty ridiculously funny ones.

Summertime just screams fun bright colours to me. A loose fitting neon v-neck t-shirt, what more could one ask for? Oh I know, the price. It was only $4.99! Put it on with some looser jeans and a comfy pair of Toms and your set!

Middle of no where

Chelsea and I drove out to Millet Alberta yesterday to go to an antique store that my Uncle had raved about. I have no clue why my Uncle had gone to the middle of no where Millet but much to our delight they have the most quaint Antique store. The sweet old man who owns it lives on the same property as the store but he lives in the house, and the store is in a make-shift garage.

I picked out these old keys, they are the smallest ones I have ever seen! Perfect to hang on a necklace if you ask me!

I’m not sure if I love ombre so much because I’m a hairstylist, or if it’s the fact that it is just plain beautiful. Now that I have a super cute tea cup I need to find a tea pot that is just as fancy!

This ice cream cup is cute right? Its from Home Sense. I bought it in the same day, just not from the antique store in Millet. I couldn’t resist all those cute colors it has!

House Boating Trip

We just got back from an amazing holiday in BC at Shuswap lake with my family. Steven and I went with my Mom, both my sisters and their husbands. I am so blessed to have a family that love each other, support each other, and all get along amazingly! We started out the first few days camping, and when I say camping I mean really camping, in a tent. Really roughing it! Luckily there are next to no bugs and the weather was absolutely perfect the whole time. It was so very fun! We played some games, walked to get ice cream, went in the water, and relaxed.

After four days of camping, we upgraded to a house boat! Best idea ever. Thanks mom 🙂

Once we were out on the water we didn’t waste any time to get in to it!

The boys skipped some rocks.

Every night on the house boat you have to dock your boat on the side of the water. Which turned out to be a really good thing because it meant we could go on hikes and find water falls and other pretty things. It also meant that we could have a fire on the beach at night and make s’mores!

We rented a sea-doo for 24 hours which ended up being a lot of fun! The boys where in heaven.

At the end of the trip I don’t think any of us where ready to come home! All in all it was a great trip and I would defiantly suggest it to anyone who is thinking of going house boating!

Doilies make my heart happy

Some people gush over puppies and kittens. Not this girl, I have a love for doilies! I made a banner and hung it up on my wall as a piece of art work. I had a roll of twine on hand and some doilies, and I started sewing them on to the twine. It wasn’t until I was two doilies in and remembered how much I dislike sewing, so I used fabric glue instead!
