Things are picking up :)

I actually like the look of my blog! Cleaning out the basement at my grandmas has been a much easier task than anticipated (that will be apart of my upcoming big post that I'm just not ready to write yet...), I've settled on what I want to do with my hair :) You'll see that soon too, I hope!

{I will eventually redo my title because it's so grainy, because I do not have photoshop. So for now, this is what you get! }

I'm also finally getting my stomach issues checked out. Celiac blood test on Tuesday, so I've been eating gluten regularly this weekend and feel like utter hell. If that comes back negative, than endoscopy and some other not-so-fun sounding tests come into play. Anyways, there shall be updates on that I guess soon, too.

Michael is drawing right now. It has been a very long time and it's kind of nice to see. A design for a tattoo he wants, but he is actually drawing <3

Tomorrow I will be posting a refashion that I did. In light of 4/20, I made a dress out of a wicked cloak made of hemp that I traded a coffee pot for.  It's really not my style to wear all the time, so I turned it into something that I will :) I shall also be posting a pinterest craft/tutorial of the week, tomorrow or Wednesday. Something I found on pinterest that I actually tried, and the results.

Tomorrow is Earth Day, so the girls and I will be spending the day outside making crafts out of recycling. Mostly egg cartons, because we seem to have a ton of them! So we'll see what we come up with.

Anyway, its long past my bed time.

{this moment} --I'm trying something new

Joining Soulemama for {this moment}
{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. 
A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

from under the pear trees

Sorry i changed the url again. I'm settled on it this time, I swear!

Loaded post coming up. I just have to get my thoughts and photos in order first. By the weekend for sure.

In other news; impromptu date night. We went to see Randy Bachman it was a really nice show. A lot of stories, as is his way. Lots of musical history. I'm glad we went.

Got free tickets because Mike helped with the set up/tear down with my cousin who works the lighting/sound stuff at the theater! :)

stupid blog..& a hunny bunny

I think my biggest problem with blogging is that I HATE the look of my blog.. pretty much at all times, and will never be content with it. Like I am with my hair: constantly fucking indecisive!

Anyways, for once in a long, long time, both my girls are napping at the same time. so I'm sitting and browsing on the internet (and trying to prettify my blog to my liking...) when I should be cleaning.. but I would rather not.

An awful lot has happened in the past few months, leaving quite a bit of unresolved issues pending, as well as clearing a few things up for us. As for details, I'd rather not jinx anything, so I'm going to keep my trap shut. But to say the least things are looking brighter.

Our stinky yard was fixed yesterday, the neighbours upstairs are still moving their stuff in (and still actively avoiding confrontation with us...) I still have not gotten any seeds, and our garden plans are once again 1000000 feet in the air.

Mike finished building the hutch for our sweet (currently) little Hunny Bunny. She is a Flemish Giant/New Zealand breed Rabbit, and will grow quite large :). She is super chill and loves the girls. She doesn't mind getting chased around by the girls either, she just runs and bounces around.
In other news, I'm going to be making bags again! I love making them , I'm just having a hard time collecting materials needed. So once I have what I need, sewing rampage it will be! :) I'll do a promo post when I have a few more made, with the styles and prices.
I'm also going to start doing a weekly post of pinterest pins that I've actually tried with the results! Stay tuned...

Our Weekend - photos by Hallewyn

Ok not ALL the pictures are from Hallie, but most of them are! She had a blast taking photo's of everything she could. 

We had a great weekend in the city! Got to see our friends get married (beautiful wedding, by the way. We are so glad we got down to be there!) , tons of visiting time with family--beach trips, and play time with grampa, gramygram and aunties while mama and daddy went to the wedding. And great weather the whole weekend! I got to see one of my best friends for the first time since Hallie was only 6 months old, too. We stayed with him a couple nights. it was very nice.
On our way home we stopped in Sechelt for another lovely family gathering.

And after three separate people telling me I need to post more, I PROMISE more photos and post to come!

Oh yeah! And when we arrived home, there was a nice surprise for the girls waiting in the yard! Thank you to our landlords for getting that for us. We brought the girls outside and instantly 8 other neighbour kids were playing in the yard and pushing Hallie and Adria on the swings. <3
