A quick little update & my favourite reads from the week.
Happy Friday friends! How was your week? We had a busy one around here, tackling all the things. Brady continued working away in the Study, mudding and sanding through the first half of the week and then installing some new recessed lights yesterday. While he was busy creating a haze of drywall dust, I got to work on a bit of painting – the newly finished walls in the Study and then refinishing a couple of old bookcases we had sitting in the basement. I only managed to get one coat of paint on them before running out, so now I’m stuck waiting for more to be shipped my way (luckily, I’ve got more than enough to keep me busy in the mean time). Even with just one coat though, I can already see how perfect this bookcase is going to look in that old desk niche in our Study. Can you see it?
We’ll be putting all of our projects on hold through the weekend ahead as we celebrate Thanksgiving with our families. We’ll be travelling on Saturday to get together with my extended family and then will be hosting Brady’s here on Sunday. I’ve got some pretty big dinner plans for our own Thanksgiving dinner, but I’m planning to get as much prepped today so I can just pop it all in the oven come Sunday – well, all except for the turkey and these buns, which are always my go-to for holiday dinners (they’re seriously SO good!). I cannot wait for all of the wonderful visits and delicious food that will be coming our way! Wishing all of my fellow Canadians the most wonderful Thanksgiving weekend ahead!
