A quick little update & my favourite reads from the week.
Happy Friday my friends! How was your week? Ours felt a little slower around here, mostly because Brady was feeling a little under the weather I think – getting sick always makes for a good excuse to slow down. While getting sick is never fun, life has been feeling pretty hectic around here lately, and I think all three of us were in need of some down time.
Honestly, I’m so glad we had a chance to recharge a bit this week, as we’ve got another busy weekend ahead of us with a company party this Friday night, an out of town hockey game on Saturday, and then Carson and I are off to the city on Sunday with some friends to take in this year’s Christmas Carol play. Between our hockey tournament last weekend, Brady being away for work earlier this week and then his getting sick right after getting home, we didn’t really accomplish much around the house, but with a whole day off for Brady this weekend, he’s hoping he can get the electrical all finished up in our primary ensuite so we can start getting the drywall up next week. I guess I should probably get on finalizing the lights for in there too! If you missed it, you can catch up with our plans for the space here.

And now, here are my favourite reads from this week…
I just love the simplicity of this neutral & organic Christmas decor.
I think this beef tenderloin crostini with parmesan wine cream sauce would be so perfect to serve at a holiday gathering.
Drawing so much inspo from this beautiful renovation project.
Thought this inexpensive holiday decor idea was so brilliant. Such a creative way to display vintage Christmas cards.
Adding these cookies to my holiday baking list.
Just started this new book the other day – I’ve heard such good things.
And finally, the Instagram account that I just can’t get enough of this week.
Wishing you the most lovely weekend! Let me know if you have any fun plans in the comments below!
