I skipped Insta-Friday last week due to a lack of cell phone photos. This week, I am back to sharing some cell phone highlights from the past week, or couple of weeks in this case.My daughter’s dance studio had their end-of-year recital. She performed in jazz, tap and ballet and had a great time doing it.
The focus in our house now is soccer—three times a week for my son and once a week for my daughter. May and June mean uncertain weather on our soccer fields—rain one minute, sun the next, freezing cold wind after that. We go from t-shirts and sunscreen to hats and blankets in the same day sometimes.
Only a couple weeks of school left. That means the annual Family Fun Night at school. We enjoyed some veggie burgers and the kids got to hang with their buddies (who they see all day at school anyway, but whatever).
I enjoyed winning two prizes in the draw—a $100 gift card for the local health food store and a $100 gift card for a regular grocery store. I bought $20 worth of tickets, and obviously it paid off!
I promptly spent the health store gift card a couple of days later. My son enjoyed a green smoothie while we shopped there. I had a “spring cleaning” juice.
One of my favourite simple pleasures is shopping. Here is my daughter at a thrift store.
I also visited Homesense recently and took photos of all the things I would have liked to buy but didn’t, like this outdoor bench.
This floral couch.
These lovely dishes.
This cool receipt organizer (I can just see the mess of papers hanging off of it now).
And this red sideboard.
Another of my favourite simple pleasures is food. I recently enjoyed some takeout Chinese food with a margarita.
One day when my daughter had a friend over, I whipped up these simple peanut butter cookies with Enjoy Life allergen-free chocolate chunks in them.
I love to have fresh fruit in the summer. I hope to go strawberry picking soon. Sometimes I end up missing our short season.
My daughter was messing around with the effects on the cell phone cam recently. Here’s Jolene.
Here’s my daughter herself, looking like a creepy version of those doll heads that you use for hairstyling.
How was your week?
