Oh hey, Friday

by - July 25, 2014

Another beautiful week in the wraps.  Here are my 5 favourite things about this week:

1- This week I started working on Willis' baseball headboard and the rest of his Baseball themed room decor.  I have no tool knowledge nor confidence.  It has been interesting, but I'm super excited to see how this project comes together.  My goal is to have it done before we take off on our summer vacation out west. That all depends if my bat order comes in on time.   This is my inspiration:


2- Husband has been bugging me to take the tractor for a ride.  I'm waiting for the perfect tractoring outfit...overalls and a plaid shirt.  I feel I need to look the part first.

3- We celebrated my Grams' 87th birthday this week.  It was great to get out of the city and spend an afternoon with her.  I hope to have that much energy when I'm 87.  My favourite part of the day was when Willis was so very much into the stories that Grams was telling about when she was 7 years old and what those days were like.  I spent a lot of my time going through the photo albums and listening to Gramma's stories.  I also stole borrowed some great pictures.
Mom and Dad- before me.  Seriously, Mom...crop top and high waisted shorts! You look killer!  Are those abs that I see??

when frilly hats and dresses. And gloves, Kyla? Really? were in style

Grams showing me her very first house.

My Grandpa.  Harvey Park, age 27.  What a beautiful man.

Grams, 1952...plaid button up and I'm sure the era's version of boyfriend jeans.  I need to start doing a weekly post on What my Grams' wore.

She's still a trendy lady at 87.

4- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Just finished reading this one (#6 of the summer) and oh my, I couldn't put it down.  I also couldn't stop thinking about the characters and what they were doing and where it was going.  Not super happy with the ending but the other 99.78% of the book was stellar, so I'm not too sad.  Can't wait to see how they spin the movie!

5- Seacret.  I have decided to align with a bestie of mine, Alison and become a Seacret Agent.  There are many fantastic products, you can visit my website here.  Right now, my favourite thing is the mud bar...I use it twice a day...I'm an oily skin gal and I love it because it sucks the grease right out of my skin, leaving it silky smooth and pretty much blemish free. Now that I think about it, I can't remember the last time I had a pimple.
You can't go wrong with the price too, for less than 20$, it goes a long way.

Linking up with the Farmer's Wife and September Farm for today's post and the ladies over at Friday Favorites.   Have a stupendous weekend!
