Oh hey, Friday

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!

on Tracy.

I've had some time over the past couple days to take a walk back through my life while revisiting all the photos and remembering old moments. It has become a part of the process I need in order to say good-bye- it's almost like I relive my life through my memories of who that person was to me so that I can fully understand the impact they had on my life.  
On Sunday heaven gained a shining star: our cousin, Tracy, passed away unexpectedly.  Tracy was young, she was vibrant, she was a creator, a dreamer, a free-spirit.  Her death is still a shock and it leaves such a huge hole in many lives.
Growing up, Tracy was that older cousin I always looked up to.  She was stuck babysitting me while I was busy admiring her gorgeous thick, curly hair, her social butterfly status and determined confidence.  I have so many memories from our frequent visits to Edmonton to hang out with my cool, older cousins. All three of them (Tracy has two older sisters- Tisa and Glenna) were the perfect f…

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…
