A quick little update & my favourite reads from the week.
Friday already?! Between Thanksgiving celebrations, a trip to the city, tackling a few house projects and whole lot of hockey, this week really seemed to just fly by for us! Last weekend we made the trek to meet up with family for Thanksgiving on Saturday and then hosted the rest of our family for dinner here on the Sunday (see what I cooked up here). It was SO wonderful to get to enjoy so much time and great food with our family.
Around it all, we also managed to get a few more little house projects crossed off the list – mainly getting our new exterior lights installed and getting the mantel back up on the Study fireplace (well, mostly anyway). If you caught our Insta stories last weekend, you’ll already know that Brady and I were playing around with a few different patterns for the fireplace tile – I can’t wait to show you what we came up with!
This weekend, in between traveling to hockey games for Carson, a coaching clinic for Brady and a hosting a meet & greet for his team, we’re hoping to at least get started on the tiling for the Study. I also need to get the brass around the fireplace painted out (planning to use this) and maybe even get the hardware swapped out on the wall of drawers behind the desk. It’s a lot to try to jam into one little weekend, so we’ll have to see how much we can get through. Wish us luck!
