On the Cusp of the New Year


Here we are....a new year is upon us.
I am not one to make resolutions. Never have, don't think I ever will. I figured out a long time ago that I prefer to live each day as it is, not putting any expectations on it.
Like today....the sun is shining. There is fresh snow. I have plenty of things I should be doing but guess what? I am going sledding. Because that's how I roll.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and if you are celebrating tonight, I hope you enjoy yourselves immensely. I wish you all a year of happiness, love and laughter! Hugs for you all! xo

Sewing....where am I going to find the time to do it all!

I just discovered (and purchased!) this pattern from Colette patterns. Whenever I find a stylish men's sewing pattern I snap it up. They are few and far between! I can't wait to make it for the Mister. I will make one in cosy flannel for the winter and some nice breezy linen for the summer....the possibilities are really endless. I like the vintage style of it. This shirt seems to fit a bit slimmer than most men's shirts which is excellent for my man since he is quite slim.
I also just got this book from a shop in Toronto called The Workroom. I would love to visit the shop if I ever find myself in TO. I really enjoyed emailing back and forth with the women who run this shop - they were super helpful and got this book to me lickety-spilt! The book is full of adorable clothes for little girls. It is all in Japanese but there are some stellar diagrams so I think I should be able to figure it all out.
Famous last words!
G and I are baking up a storm and are going to continue with that today. Hope you have a lovely weekend! xo

Pretty Frocks

Having a bit of a lazy day today. Last night was my staff party. It is always a good time. I work with really awesome people! To make a long story short, there is an open bar, lots of laughing, hilarious conversations, and I usually stay up way too late. I am wiped.
I was cruising Modcloth and found some pretties :

This one comes in red too!

I must post pictures of myself in the dress that I made for the party last night. I forgot my camera at home so I didn't take a single picture!
This is what I am listening to right now. If you like drum and bass go have a listen.
Hope you are all somewhere cozy and warm tonight! xo

Birthday Boy

Today is the mister's birthday. He has to work all day - poor guy. But it gives me and G all day to do something fabulous for him.
First off, we will be cleaning the house.
Secondly, we will be making a birthday cake. Nothing chocolate or over the top because he is not that kinda cake guy. It will be simple. A mango upside down cake. His favourite.
Then we will be wrapping a couple of pretty sweet goodies and making a wicked awesome card. Complete with glitter, I am almost certain of it.
Then comes dinner. The mister loves all things pork. So on the menu for tonight:

Baby back ribs - I am going to make a dry rub for them and if I have time, homemade bbq sauce
Chili Rellenos - yum. That's all I have to say about that.
Warm potato salad, with the possible addition of some crispy bacon bits. I did say it was all about the pork, didn't I?
Green salad or maybe a nice sui choy slaw with lime.

My mouth is watering just thinking about this meal. I had better get on with it.
Happy Birthday, love! xoxoxo
