Girls on film

Hey friends,

Up here in the Great White North (GWN) it’s the Victoria day long-weekend. You see, us Canadians have never been able to fully quit the British monarchy, and as such, the Queen’s mug is plastered all over our currency, we get to compete in the Commonwealth games, and we are gifted an extra day off every year, always around this time.

I’m no fan of the English royal family by any stretch, but when it comes to statutory holidays, I’ll take it.

Tomorrow is Mr. M’s birthday and we will be up to many a shenanigan to celebrate this auspicious occasion.

I am so excited to give him his gift, I’ve been asking him almost everyday for a week if he wants to open it early.

(I’m really crap at waiting for others to open their presents. Usually I try to coerce them into doing so immediately after I have purchased the gift. Seriously I am the absolute worst. I don’t know how many times I’ve bullied M into opening things before the actual occasion. In my defense, I’m just going to state that can get really excited, okay?)

This time however, he’s fought back hard, so it will be tomorrow morning that he’ll finally get to see what I got him.

In the meantime, we’ve been out and about all day soaking up the sunshine.

This morning after we completed our compulsory tough mudder training, we glammed ourselves up and walked down to the quay for some brunch time crepes.

Here are a few snaps from the weekend so far:

Late night walks and coffee runs on Friday night.

Latte for M. London fog for me.

Trees outside our house.

One of my favourite colours in the world.

Brunch time dress.

Lady bug dress.

Beauty tree.

So gorgeous.

GIANT marshmallows.

Holy frick.

Our plans for the rest of the night.

Love, love, love.

Happy weekend you beauty cats!

I hope you’re smiling wherever you are.

  1. I love the pics :) You home looks like one of the ones in the calendars. All the best to Mr. M.

    Rock on, gorgeous Lady bug :D

  2. I know exactly what you mean about the presents. I always wrap something smaller, separate to reduce my guilt when I force my bf to open stuff early…present-giving and buying is just too fun.

    Hope your weekend was awesome!

  3. Oh my gosh, your weekend looks fantastic! Love, love, love the dress – hottie! And the coffee and well, everything. So fabulous!

    1. Thanks! I think we should self-crown ourselves the weekend Queens. We will be benevolent rulers, and ensure everyone has free access to fan-freaking-tastic weekends every week during our reign.

      What do you think?

      1. I’m so down with this! Creating adventure and awesome experiences wherever we go. I think we seriously need to do a weekend gathering to meet up, since we’re so close and all. I know I’ll be coming up for a long weekend wedding in August with “J”… :)
