weekend recap | getting stuff done at home

This weekend was just what I needed. I think D and I were both craving some time at home to do some cleaning, watch movies and relax.

On Friday night we watched FIBA Americas (basketball). Then on Saturday, I had a laughing fit with the seniors at our dance fitness class. The theme was ABBA and we came up with some pretty creative choreography. "Jump with my baby", turned into us miming being pregnant while hopping up and down. Almost everyone was in stitches. Maybe you had to be there?

Saturday night we watched The Beach - I know. I can't believe it took me this long to watch it. Apparently, it's a classic Leo movie. I liked it, but I feel like it started going downhill about halfway through. The whole gameboy scene was a bit wacky.

Today we got a few things done around the house that we've been procrastinating on. Hung a curtain in the living room (pics soon!), cleaned 3 windows, and hung up this painting I did a while ago.

I try not to see the mistakes when I look at it. I do like the hair though and it's the first of my artwork I've ever framed and hung. Plus I think it coordinates well with the wall colour.

What did you do this weekend? Fill me in.

Thanks for stopping in,

  1. The beach is a classic, but I do agree it does seem to trail off halfway through.

  2. I really love your painting! She looks so serene and satisfied. As if everything is going her way in life. You should be proud to hang it on your wall. She's lovely! I'm also a Canadian, but have move more than half-way around the world and sometimes feel quite homesick. Love to find a bit of Canada in your blog. X Jane

  3. I love a good weekend at home, too! Sometimes it's just really what you need :-)

    Your little family is so cute, and your blog is a great find!

  4. I love your painting! I know it's so easy to critic you own work but it's magical, really.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Your little notes always make my day!
