Hello Monday! As usual, where did the weekend go? And also, is winter over yet? We’ve seriously been having the most extreme weather this year! More often than not it’s -20 and we’ve been getting a ton of snow to, which is unusual for Calgary. Emmylou was reminiscing about the park yesterday like it was a long lost friend. Poor girl. We did reach an important milestone this weekend thanks to the cold weather though. I love watching movies, and had always wondered what it would be like to watch kid’s movies with Emmylou when she was old enough. To be honest I kind of doubted that I would enjoy it because I’m not so into the cartoons, but we watched Zootopia on Saturday night and I actually enjoyed it way more than she did! Haha. Now I can at least look forward to planning family movie nights with popcorn and hot chocolate to get through the rest of the winter, although I might need to find shorter movies because her attention span isn’t quite developed enough to sit through a full length film.
We also ate croissants and take-out sushi and did absolutely no exercise (what New Year’s resolutions… lol). So this week I’m definitely planning on doing a couple of yoga classes and eating a few vegetables, and thankfully it’s supposed to warm up later in the week so perhaps Emmylou and I will reacquaint ourselves with the park!
I wanted to share a few of my favorite items I picked up over Christmas, starting with a super versatile pair of Chelsea Ugg boots that I’ve been wearing non-stop. I got them before out trip to Victoria because they are water-proof, warm and comfortable and I’m so happy with them. I don’t usually wear a lot of brown, but after buying these boots, I’m thinking that could change :). I also really like these Chelsea Blundstone boots, and these Uggs as well.
My lace-up sweater if from the Gap and is super cozy and I love the oatmeal colour. My jeans are Gap as well. I’ve been wearing this Anorak with faux fur trim on warmer days, and I also brought it to Victoria over Christmas. My Fossil bag is new (it’s possible I got it to match my boots…) but I will definitely be getting good use out of it because it’s great quality and such a good basic to have. I also really like this brown crossbody with tassel detail from Nordstrom, and it’s on major sale.
Are any of you having more luck with New Years resolutions than I am? I’d love to hear what is working for you!
