We're off to a good start!

Mondays aren't usually one of my favourites but this one is doing alright! Checking lots of boxes on my to-do list, got some business happening in my etsy store, my floors are clean, my homework is done, business cards at the printer, and I just got the news that I was awarded a busary for school! Life is good!

Had a wonderful birthday week with my kiddos, lots of cake, and lots of small and precious moments. Friday night I was out with my girls and had a great time - slept in until 11am on Saturday. Oh yeah.

Here are a few pics of my birthday cake baked by me, decorated by my monkeys.

The masterpiece. Jackson was distraught over Samia's toothpick accents.
They each had a very different vision suffice to say.

Oh. I almost forgot... did a little thrifting on the way to my cousin's birthday on Sunday, (I am 33 years older than her). Here's my haul...

I love those shoes, the need a bit of polish and they'll be right as rain. I'm even thinking of painting them cornflower blue. And I guess stripes are catching my eye these days. The striped fabric in the back is a man's shirt and I will be making Sam an Easter dress out of it in the next few days. I will post the finished product.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
