At the beginning of the summer I had the privilege of doing hair and makeup for a photo shoot for my friend Erin Walker. She is a wedding photographer in Edmonton that had a dream to put together a bridal show with all of the best florist, planners, hairstylists, and designers. You can see more photos and read about it here. We did these photos so she could use them for all of her advertising on the Swept website and Facebook page.

Today I got together with some of my closest friends and we made/decorated some sugar cookies! We also each made 5 dozen cookies and brought them so we could swap and get a good variety of cookies.
If you were to go through my photos on my phone, they would look something like this. My niece loves to take silly selfies, and it is the cutest thing ever.
She is always asking if I can take her photo or video of her. She makes me smile.
Last night I went out for dinner and dessert with my sisters and my Mom. We went downtown to Tres Carnales for some salsa, tacos, and torta’s. It is one of my favourite restaurants, and Mexican food isn’t even on the top of my list normally. After dinner we went to Duchess Bakery for some tea and desserts.
We have made some great progress with the nursery over the last few weeks! My friend Leah painted us the most beautiful canvas of a deers head that we put on the wall right by the door.
My good friend Niela gave us this amazing unit to put on our wall that we still need to hang! I can’t wait to find lots of treasures to put in it! So far I have a globe, clock, mason jar, and a candle. Steve found a classic old school skateboard at the antique mall, and my antlers came from my neighbour. On top of the dresser we will put a change pad which will take up most of the space, but for now I just have everything sitting on top of it.
My mom and I went to West Coast Kids and found the most beautiful glider/reclining chair. I am in LOVE! It is the perfect color, and the perfect amount of comfy.
This weekend while I was working at the salon, Steven and my brother-in-law were busy putting a wood wall up in the nursery. A few days earlier we went and got really thin pieces of pine, and three different stain colors. Steven stained them a few days before he put them up on the wall behind the crib.
The best part about this wall is that it was all under $90 dollars!
