weekend recap: July 4-6

Happy Belated Independence Day to my American readers! I hope you all had a great weekend:)

I’m in Canada so I didn’t have any county-related celebrations this weekend (mine was the previous weekend for Canada Day).  Our weekend started off as usual, with dinner at home and Netflix.  We are currently watching Happy Endings, which is pretty funny.

Saturday started super early for me since my mom asked me to drive her to work because her car had to be scrapped.   The rest of the day was spent at home doing housework (me) and yardwork (David).  I went back out to take my mom home from work and along the way we stopped to look at cars for sale.  I don’t really enjoy car shopping, especially when it’s out of necessity because it seems like there is a limited selection of used cars that are in good shape and decently priced.  In the evening David worked on a birthday present for his sister (Kaitlyn).

felted Totoro

It’s a character from her favourite movie, My Neighbor Totoro.  David made it through a process called felting. 



Sunday was spent doing a bit of caulking repair in the bathroom shower.  For some reason the seal between the tub and shower surround keeps flaking off.  David thinks he figured out the problem so hopefully this is the last time we have to recaulk.  Kaitlyn’s birthday party was in the afternoon so we spent some time at David’s parent’s house with the family.

seriously, how cool are these gladiator Birkenstocks?!
David was showing everyone how we made the felted Totoro

Before the party we went to the mall so I could look for a new bathing suit top and since we had some time to spare we checked out some other stores for fun.  We found the best lawn ornament EVER and bought him for the garden.

It’s a zombie gnome!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m not a huge zombie or gnome fan, but this guy was too awesome to pass up.  Right now he is in the garden under the living room window but he might adventure in the other gardens eventually.

This week is going to be busy for me! I’m going grocery shopping and taking my mom out today, tomorrow I’m working in the morning and have a maternity photography session scheduled in the evening, Wednesday and Friday are work days again and Thursday will likely be spent on yard or house work.  I enjoy having a paying job again but it is taking some getting used to (considering how most of my time was spent in yoga pants before!).

I’m hoping to post a recipe and decor post this week, so check back soon.  If you haven’t already done so, feel free to subscribe to my posts via e-mail (there is a little box on the right of the page).  Alternatively you can follow me on social media using the icons at the top of the page above my picture.
