Five on Friday

Best parts about spring:

1.    The setting aside of winter coats. I actually wore mine on Monday, which will hopefully be the last time until well past Thanksgiving. Over the break we are going to do some spring cleaning around our house and the winter/summer outerwear flop is on the list!

2.    Sunshine feeling warm. Saskatchewan is one of the sunniest places in Canada, yet the sun shining down on you in freezing temperatures just doesn’t feel as good as when it shines down in the spring.

3.     Style MeChallenge. I have been really enjoying searching for items. I haven’t had much success so far, but hopefully a trip to the mall today will get me on track. Stayed tuned next Wednesday for a post about the first few days. I will be linking up with Deena and a few other bloggers to share our outfits.

4.    Picking the boys up from daycare – outside. I love pulling up on our crescent and seeing all the kids. This week there has typically been around a dozen kids playing on our side of the crescent any given day. I especially love seeing my two munchkins. One is usually shooting hoops or playing driveway hockey and the other is typically being pushed around (in a stroller!) or carried.

5.    Rubber boots and non-boots. I know I have talked about them before, but I seriously love wearing rubber boots. I also love wearing non-boots (anything that is not a boot!). It feels great to get into shoes without socks! Check out my new flats for the challenge below. My snobbish feet felt good in these $20 gems from Target!


  1. I love wearing non-boots and am sooo happy Spring seems to actually be here so I can enjoy cute flats again too!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
