Weekly wrap-up: Dancing + dating + decluttering


Easter was … hyper. Let’s leave it at that.


My weekly DIY was a cool custom sign I made for a Cape Breton friend. It was really easy to make (minus the hand-cramping from the lettering) and I’m definitely going to make something similar for us.

I also shared my five favourite photography tips, taken from an amazing ECM Media workshop.

I talked about my son dating (!!!) and how I’m freaking about about it (!!!)

When little kids “date”

I also Instagrammed a picture of the adorable Monopoly money shirt I had finished sewing the night before. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.



I talked about my big skincare mistake and what I’m doing to fix it. (Hint: use anti-aging cream for the first time everrrrr)

What you need to know about skincare in your 30s

I took a FILTER-FREE (and hatless) selfie in the car at preschool pick-up, too.

I also linked to an article I wrote about an awesome local program for girls to prevent girl-against-girl bullying and improve their self-confidence.

No more Mean Girls

And I couldn’t resist sharing this picture of my space babies in their new matching space outfits. (How cute is this fabric?)

I shared what happened when my picky family (including picky ME) tried some new gluten-free and lactose-free foods.

I also had a fun post over on HowToSaveMoney.ca about decluttering and organizing on a budget.

7 Ways to Declutter Without Spending a Fortune


Busy weekend ahead of us, including a date night (of sorts), a birthday party, and hopefully some clean-up work in the back yard (a.k.a. where plastic toys go to die).


So what do you think?
