Life Lately: Family February Edition

Hi friends!  I took a week off from social media and spent the week enjoying my family.  One of my goals was to prioritize spending tine with the girls, my husband and friends.  Last week was a school holiday, so we all had the week off.  It was very cold again, like -30C, so unfortunately we didn't play outdoors as much as we would have liked but we did make the most of it and we just allowed ourselves to slow down and relax around the house.  Here is our week and what our family has been up to.

Saturday, Feb. 18th 

Happy Birthday to my sweet husband Logan!  We celebrated by going up to the cabin.

Sunday, Feb 19th

Halie's boyfriend joined us at the cabin for the weekend.  We skated, got outdoors on the side-by-side and sled, and enjoyed some walks.  We played games, Halie and BF cooked us a delicious pasta dish for supper, and we even got a visit in with three of our friends from the lake.  Oh and we saw a Lynx just strolling by.

Monday, Feb. 20th

Back home and we got together with some of our oldest friends.  We were supposed to go out but due to it being  Family Day, a holiday, the place we were going to go to was closed so they just came over.  We had the BEST time.  We laughed so much and had a blast catching up, reminiscing and just full-on laughing out loud. 

Tuesday, Feb. 21st 

We recovered from the night before and stayed at home.  A lazy morning.  Mail day!!!!  Look at what I got in the mail from a local jewelry, Isla! Rae Jewelry?!?  I am so in love with these huge hoops!   Make sure you check her out, she ships and these are a great price at only $22.

Wednesday, Feb. 22nd

Coffee date with my friend Kandice to start off the day.  Driving the girls to and from the barn, job, friends.  Basically a full-time Uber!

Thursday, Feb. 23rd 

We went to watch AVATAR and Halie decided to come along.  Anya had already seen it and opted to hang with friends instead.  It was a really good movie and even though I never did see the first one, I really enjoyed it.

Friday, Feb. 24th

Cooper day!!!!  For our nephew Coopers 7th birthday we decided to give him an experience gift.  When he arrived we had a waffle and sausage breakfast, then played numerous games of Loop n' Louise, Guess Who and Go Fish. We went to Ruckers and played arcade type games, followed by going to a hockey game.  Luck would have it that the game was our city, Blades,  vs. the city he lives in, Raiders.  A really intense game, including a power outage, and an overtime  win for Coopers team!!!  

Saturday, Feb. 25th 

After a morning hot tub with Cooper, Logan drove him home and Anya wanted me to teach her how to clean the bathroom.  I've given both girls opportunities to learn to clean the bathroom properly and I am willing to pay them for that chore.  It's a win-win!  After Halie was done at the barn, the two of us went to the mall as I needed to pick up a few items for a new collaboration I am working on.  Stay tuned on those details.  

Sunday, Feb. 26th 

Last day of vacation means a slow morning coffee before working out and starting the day.   The weather lifted and we spent some time outdoors with Oreo.  We also hosted my family over for an afternoon visit, coffee and cake for Logan's birthday.  Check out the new winter coat Logan bought with his birthday money.

Overall, I spent a lot of time just hanging out with the people I love the most.  Also, I dug into planning our Disney World trip in 6 weeks and we feel set and ready to go for the most part!  The countdown on our adventure is on.  If you have any tips or tricks, let me know!

Have a great week and thanks for taking the time to stop by.  


  1. I can't believe you just saw a lynx walk by: how cool! And it sounds like a great time outdoors. Brr though, that was cold!

    1. I know! They look so cute but when I googled them, it's no cute kitty cat. LOL!
