Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.

Justin’s birthday streamers*the St. Lawrence Market (in search of dinner fixins)what eventually became dinnerwool socks & floor beds

This weekend we managed to strike that perfect balance between doing nothing and accomplishing plenty. On Friday, we celebrated Justin’s birthday surrounded by friends and family of the very best variety. He was spoiled. It was well deserved. Meanwhile, Saturday was dedicated towards kicking this head-cold I’ve been sporting straight in the kisser. We built a floor bed** and watched far too many terrible movies (seriously – movie recommendations people? I’ve had no luck in this department lately) and ate leftover cake until our stomachs hurt. It worked (thus proving my theory: cake cures all). Take that sinus’!

Oh, and then I got bangs (and glasses)!

Happy weekend indeed

*I stayed up late to decorate our bedroom door with streamers for when Justin awoke on his birthday. When got up the next morning he thanked me for his “door papers”. I love boys (and I’m particularly fond of him).
**a floor bed: one air mattress + all of the blankets and pillows you can find plunked in front of a television (or fireplace). Bonus points if you build a fort.

ps. Today’s the last day for the sneakpeeq giveaway!

    Love your hair! I have naturally curly hair and could never pull bangs off. :( Where we live we spend our winters watching a lot of movies. Here are a few I really enjoyed, “Luck By Chance” (there are subtitles but worth it, Farhan Akhtar and his sister are going to be huge soon), “Wasabi” (there are english subtitles but you can turn them off), “The Namesake”, “Rachel Getting Married”, “Couples Retreat” (funny!), “Salaam Bombay” (classic!), “Gran Torino” (I’m a huge C.E. fan!) and “Life in A Metro”. Yes, I watch a lot of foreign movies and I do FF through any dance numbers!

      ooo yes! I’ve seen a few of those and have been meaning to see a few. I’m writing them down! Thank you thank you! Also, you’re wise – curly bangs is not the best look ;) I’ve always been jealous of curls though
