dinner party

It was furniture building day, and for once I didn't curse Ikea and their blasted allen keys. I did however, curse the ass who was supposed to pick up a couch FOR FREE that I posted on Kijiji. She emailed me 15 minutes before she was supposed to show up, saying she changed her mind because of cat allergies. I told the idiot in the first of 8 emails that we had cats so that this very thing wouldn't happen. And she said "nope, we aren't allergic". Anyway, The new playroom looks fantastic, and most importantly, Gia LOVES it. She had a great time playing with her new stuff, and like a typical baby, all the boxes that were scattered around.

Tonight, we went to a dinner party at a friends house. I had to break out the boots again, as my toes are long overdue for another pedicure. Let me just say that I'm really proud of myself for mixing patterns. It is not something I normally do, but this sweater makes me want to. I think I'll try find some more patterned cardi's in Montreal tomorrow.

friday hanging out with the inlaws

My inlaws are in town from P.E.I. so all you get are a few quick Instagram pics taken while we waited for them to come by so we could run around the city all day.

shopping list: h&m;

My mom had the great idea of a girls shopping trip to Montreal this weekend. Like I'd say no! It's much needed, as the days are getting warmer, and being 25 lbs smaller then last summer, I don't have much that fits. I plan on getting most of what I'll need to get me through the warm weather, while adhering to a budget.  The only way to do that is to make a list. Up first...H&M.

Yesterday got away from me. It was a busy, fun filled day of coffee with a great friend, baby play dates, a trip to the park, and a shopping spree at Ikea to buy a tonne of stuff for Gia's new basement playroom. Before I knew it, it was 11pm and I was running on 4 hours sleep from the night before and couldn't keep my eyes open to do a post. So here is yesterday, with my favorite necklace that I unfortunately broke when taking off my bag.

Sweater: AE
Tank: Mexx
Shoes: Toms
Accessories:  Aldo necklace, Fossil watch, and Holly Yashi earrings
