Family Time

Since Ryan and I are trying to make the most of the time we have with Mickey and we don’t know how long that will be, we decided to do a family photo shoot of the three of us. Whenever we want beautiful pictures we know to immediately go to Sarah of Starseed Photography. We did them at the dog park because it is Mickey’s absolute favourite place to go, if you even whisper the words he’s at the back door ready to go. We were so lucky with the weather, it was really gloomy the few days prior but the sky gave us sun on this morning. It was cold though! These pictures are very special to us but I wanted to share a few of our favourites on my blog. My make up was done by my super talented sister Gillian from Make Up by Gillian ML.

I’m really into my hair cut and colour right now but I HATE my bangs, I wish I didn’t cut them again and left well enough alone.

Those Summer Nights

Hard to believe we’re halfway through August already! Seriously, where did the summer go? I did a little shopping today and I found these red khakis at the GAP for $29.99! Then I asked them if they had anymore colours and they had a rainbow. I got some in peach also and they were on sale for $11.99! It was such a happy surprise. The red had me feeling really nautical, so I knew that stripes were in order.  Two things I really noticed about these pictures are that 1) Summer is almost over and I have NO TAN! Everything I got on my honeymoon is long gone. Too much working indoors. 2) My hair is atrocious, it looks so bad, I can’t wait to chop it all off and get rid of the brown on Saturday.

I made Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers for my hubby and I for dinner, they were so good. I love anything Mexican, and beans beans beans! All the beans in the world! Recipe to follow tomorrow, they are dead easy. Have a great week!
