I had the loveliest day today catching up with one of my most favourite ladies! We went for breakfast at Stella's, strolled through the farmer's market for some fresh produce, and played with my sister's foster pup! It was such a beautiful day outside, and there's just something about exploring the farmer's market with an old friend. I loved every minute! And oh my, did I ever eat my heart out at Stella's... We're talkin a waffle, side of hashbrowns AND a side of toast... that I polished clean. I am super impressed with myself. Now I've got a pot of homemade stew brewing with the fresh veggies I got from the market! Everybody there was so sweet and it just makes me feel so happy to be eating locally grown food that helps support the livelihood of families that could very well be my neighbours. Not to mention, it's much more delicious than grocery store produce! 

This outfit has been my go-to for the past week or so! The tank top I'm wearing I mentioned in my last post has been worn an obnoxious amount because my priority is comfort now, and this tank is all comfort! I got these shorts probably about 8 years ago for 4$ at Urban Behaviour! It was such a steal of a deal probably because they were definitely not in style 8 years ago, but I've been wearing them none stop these past few years! I was so happy when I pulled them out for the summer and they still fit my super pregnant self! They're incredibly comfortable, not to mention airy and breezy for the super hot days! My kimono has been worn a whole bunch lately too, I just love the layered look, but it's still super breezy and light! 

I've been just loving these warm summer days spent with my girlfriends lately. I am taking full advantage of all of this me time before the girls get here, and it just is making me remember that me time is just as important as work, housework, having homemade meals ready every night, and all those everyday chores. I'm making such an effort to remember this when guilt takes over that all those things have been taking a backseat lately. Remembering what makes me the most happy in life and making those things my priority has made this time so wonderfully blissful. 

I hope you remember to do something nice for yourself, wonderful people. You deserve to make yourself a priority, it makes life so much more wonderous! 

Take good care, lovelies! 

Christmas Time

Well, Christmas has come and gone and as per usual, I am so sad that it is over!!! But this year was Kyle and my first Christmas together as husband and wife and it was just so sweet. We were completely surrounded by so many loved ones and we cannot get over how blessed we truly are! On Christmas Eve we took our pups for a stroll at my dad's house in the country, played with our niece Sadie, and then went home for napping, cleaning, and getting ready for the next day's festivities! That evening, we went to Kyle's parent's house in the country to spend the evening with Kyle's parents and siblings. We played games and just hung out and it was so so nice. That day I kept it comfy in a pair of leggings, a huuuuuge grey shirt type thing, and my plaid scarf! Ohhh and certainly no makeup. It was cozy and so fun!

Christmas Day was definitely not so leisurely. It was an adventure, that's for sure! We wanted to be able to see all of our family members on Christmas Day, so our Christmas started at 6am. I took the dogs out for a walk, because they would be alone for most of the day, and we left for Kyle's parent's house at 7:30am so his little brother could open his presents right away! We were completely spoiled by all of our family members on Kyle's side and it was just so much fun! I even got my own little stocking :). It was so sweet.

Then we packed up and headed back to the city to my mom's house, where we would open presents with my mom, my siblings, and my Grandma! Me and my siblings always LOVE opening our stockings first thing in the morning, and Kyle and I got to share one this year which was so fun! We've had the same stockings for our whole lives that our mom sewed for us when we were babies, so it's really fun to keep that little tradition even though we're all fully grown adults ;). Then we opened presents and visited for a bit... Until we had to head out to our next location!

Next we went to my dad's house in the country to visit his side of the family, and our step sisters. Again, we opened presents, visited, had a little snack, and watched silly YouTube videos that my brother provided for us... cause he's silly. My dad's side was leaving for a family dinner in the early afternoon, so when they were ready to go, we headed back to Kyle's family's house for a little afternoon board gaming, and more visiting!

Then back to my mom's house in the city we go for a Christmas feast! Some of my extended family was there and we ate and played Cards Against Humanity and it was just too funny. We had so so so much fun, but needless to say we were pretty darn exhausted!

When we got home we fed the doggies some Christmas treats, and they were so snuggly and nice. We went to bed pretty early because I had to work the next day. I slept like a little tiny baby, I swear.

My Christmas outfit was this beautiful ivory quarter length sleeved lace dress with tights and knee high black boots, and I was actually so comfy all day throughout all of our travels!

The day after Christmas we had my extended family dinner for my mom's side, which is always a blast! There's always the yummiest food and my cousins and Kyle started a tradition last year, where they decided they're going to play mini sticks in the basement every year before dinner. Mini sticks is basically miniature hockey, where you have tiny hockey sticks and have to play on your knees... It gets pretty intense and my sister and I love to watch. It's pretty hilarious!

For this dinner I wore a green basic swing dress that I got from my sister for Christmas with my grey booties and of course, my plaid scarf. I am starting to realize I need to invest in some necklaces... My plaid scarf is getting too much attention ;).

It's been an amazing Christmas season, and we feel so blessed to have such amazing friends and families. It has been so amazing to spend this season as husband and wife and we're just so happy! I love this time of year, and am a little bit sad that it's over, but I am looking forward to getting back into our routine!

I hope you all had the most amazing holiday season, I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!

THESE BOOTIES THOUGH

THESE BOOTIES THOUGH

I saw these booties at the mall the other day and decided that my measly student budget did not include the purchase of booties because hey, they're just not essential to my wellbeing. Or so I thought. Because for 3 days after I laid eyes on the beauty that these booties are, they were all I could think about. Yes I am overexagerating but I simply had never felt this way about shoes before!!!!
