Happy things with which to end the week

Oh boy, am I ever glad it's Friday. It's been a crazy week. Lots of late nights spent writing report cards, plus three days in a row of parent-teacher interviews add up to one tired girl nursing a seriously sore throat and constant headache. Thank goodness today was a Pro-D day. I got to sleep in a wee bit {after an early Thursday night in bed with Downton Abbey}, drive through Starbucks for my chai tea latte, and then sit back and enjoy an amazing guest speaker at a really interesting workshop. Lovely way to end a hectic week. I'm feeling better already! Now, a few more happy things with which to end this week...

My Christmas mini-swap package arrived this afternoon. It's full of fabulous vintage stickers and tags, and my favourite teas, all the way from the lovely Jasmine in Brisbane, Australia. Thank you so much, Jasmine! {and Gracie, for organizing the swap!}

 I am wild about those snowmen.

My fridge is covered with artwork that looks like this these days... Love it.

Dylan's latest Christmas picture. Totally the sort of thing I used to draw...

My friend Shannon and I are going to see the new Twilight movie tonight. We've been to all the others together, so it's a must. Looking forward to such a silly indulgence {terrible acting, good looking vampires and werewolves, and a great, big bucket of popcorn!} to kick off the last weekend of November. I can't wait!

Team Edward? Or Team Jacob? Or both? ;~)

Happy Friday, friends! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Oh I'm so glad the swap parcel arrived. Jasmine will be so glad to know that it made it :) And I'm so glad that you joined the swap. The drawing is so cute too! I would have drawn similar things. I haven't see the movie yet but I will be indulging in it next week.x

  2. Brendan is busy writing report card too, it keeps you guys so busy. He has summer holidays soon though so thats a reward for all the hard work. Love your package, I was partnered with Jasmine for a swap last year and she always sends the prettiest things :)

  3. I loved your post. You always have such a positive outlook on life. I need to try harder to do that too. Your Christmas art is lovely! :) How was the movie? I am waiting for my best friend to come back from vacation, so we can watch it together. Enjoy the weekend!

  4. Oh the pictures on your fridge brought back a flood of memories!!! Beautiful christmas drawings of long ago! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  5. I have fallen head over heels for all vintage style Christmas images this year, so I two adore those snowmen. And Dylan's drawing is just perfect; so detailed and a pure masterpiece!
