Friday Favourites #1: Fashion, Clean Eating, Holiday Treats & Side of Inspiration

I started my day super early this morning - not because I was working out at 5:00 a.m. getting my fitness on. Nope. Not this mom. I was up at 4:30 a.m. trying to convince my 6 year old that it was night time, not morning, and had to get his effing ass back into bed and go to sleep. It didn't work. The kid is persistent, and he's allergic to sleep. I did manage to finally break free and get my 30 minute bad-ass workout in around 6:30 a.m., and that wasn't too bad because lucky me, I have the day off from work today - so I didn't have to worry about rushing through the morning and getting to work on time. Win!

So it's 9:30 a.m. on a super cold but beautifully sunny Friday morning. I'm 3 coffees and a protein shake deep into the day already, listing to the audio version of  You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life: In Less Than 30 Minutes by Jen Sincero.  I keep hearing how important personal development is soooo I'm trying it out and so far, so good! Aaaaand to add to this fabulous morning: the kids are at school and the hubby is standing in line at Best Buy waiting to buy the new Nintendo Classic. I'm all alone...perfect time to dust off this old blog here and share some fabulous things I have been swooning over all week!

This Barbecue Chicken Baked Sweet Potato Recipe. Get recipe here. 

This super comfy Plaid Boyfriend Flannel Shirt from Old Navy (I bought one in red and green). I bought it from OldNavy.ca but they have it on the American site too. Here's the link to the shirt on OldNavy.ca



I pinned this quote on Pinterest awhile ago but every time I read it I crack up...this is my life now.

I'm totally digging this hot chocolate guide...can't wait to try some of these this as the weather gets colder and we start decorating the house for Christmas! Get the infographic from SheKnows.com.

And lastly, while I embark on this new fitness journey (yet again) I keep reminding myself that while it takes 21 days to form a habit, it actually takes 90 days to create a lifestyle. I'm determined to make it to that 90th day and beyond.


What are some of your Friday fave's this week?

  1. I love that 21/90 graphic. I have to keep reminding myself of that. Your sweet potato recipe looks amazing! Jess at Just Jess

  2. I had a sleep allergic child too. Don't worry, the teenagers years hit and they go comatose till noon on the weekend. (You've got a long way to go though, so I doubt that's comforting lol)
    I don't even like sweet potatoes, but I'd eat that. :)

    Wait? The Nintendo is back? I feel an impulse buy coming on.

    That plaid shirt is so cute. I loooove plaid, especially flannel.

Life Lately: Back to Basics

It's been awhile since I felt inspired to write anything either on the blog, in my journal, and hell, even in Birthday/greeting cards these days. I blame stress from various sources but also a bit of laziness too.
It feels good to flex the writing muscle again, so here's what's been happening in my life lately. 
We celebrated my sister-in-laws baby shower recently and it was such a fun day! Check out her decor, she and her friends did an amazing job - the dessert and candy table was a hit!

Aaaand someone was tired from all the festivities....a cat nap was obviously needed!

Then there was that time we had a family games night. I was so tired but my hubby got major points for setting up the board games, getting a surprise dessert for the kids (DIY sundaes), and wine for me!

I enjoyed some much needed me time with my couch, comfy blanket, and a warm coffee.

I'm on a new and improved healthy eating kick and panicked a little when the family wanted to go to Boston Pizza one day f…

Life Lately: New Milestones and Weigh In Wednesday

Forget about being a yo-yo dieter, I'm also clearly a yo-yo blogger! One minute I'm too busy to worry about blog posts, then I'm pinning tons of blog post and journaling ideas, then I'm quitting social media all together. I'm not sure what's happening in my old age, but ever since having kids, I kind of can't stick to a plan. I used to be so organized and stayed true to my convictions or life plans. Now I fly by the seat of my pants and I start and quit things all the time. Not sure what this really says about me, but what I do know is absence makes the heart grow fonder and I really miss blogging about what’s new in my neck of the woods. The good, the bad, the ugly, I’m no stranger to over sharing and quite frankly, it’s therapeutic.
So what’s been going on with me over the last couple of months? Well, I became an aunt again (my brother and his girlfriend had a baby), we celebrated countless birthdays, anniversaries, tooth fairy visits, and jobs well done a…
