Happy Canada Weekend

Happy Canada Weekend to all our fellow Canadians :)
And Happy 3rd Birthday to Lily!


Lazy Days of Summer

Lazy being the key word there. I feel a bit of my blog motivation coming back, so we'll see lol. It's good to take a break sometimes.

I have been cooking and reading alot, and pretty much just enjoying the weather. School is out and I am uber excited to be done making lunches for a few months - it's one of my most dreaded tasks. 

These are a few pics from our evening at the Sandbanks , I have decided I much prefer the quietness of the beach in the evening vs the busy touristy day time.

From my bookshelf>Nice Girls

Title: Nice Girls/Jane Jameson Series
Author: Molly Harper

Yes. I read this. In fact, I read four of these...and loved every minute of it. No shame.

 Jane Jameson is a straight laced librarian who, once turned into a vampire, gets into all sorts of saucy shenanigans, some of which take place in a restaurant called Shenanigans. This series was absolute fluff but carried with it a great sense of humour and some pretty fun naughty bits. Jane is a great character; she is snarky and sarcastic but also lovable. Molly Harper does a great job creating believable dialogue that made me laugh. I kept thinking "this sounds me and my friends". Plus did you see that cover? It's gloriously hilarious. 

My husband made fun of me so much over these. He's reading Game of Thrones and would say "I can't believe so and so died" and I'd say (minor spoiler alert) "yeah well, Jane is trying on bridesmaid dresses for a werewolf wedding"...cue husbandly eyeroll.

I would classify these as better written than the Sookie Stackhouse books with a more likable heroine and much better dialogue, but with less serious and less complicated story lines. 

Will I read more Molly Harper? Probably. But only if her next series has equally embarrassing titles and covers.



Summer Time

Our weather has definitely turned to summer here! Most of days lately have been spent outside enjoying it - we even went to the beach already, probably the earliest we have ever gone!

Here are a few pics from our trip to a little breakfast crepes restaurant - it was the best thing ever and made me feel a little like we were sitting in Paris (hint, hint Clifford!)

What is new in your neck of the woods? Any big summer adventures planned?


New Fakey Blythe!

Look what came in the mail this week! 

my new fakey Blythe
She looks SO good and she is way better quality then my last fakey. Her arms are made of much sturdier stuff than my other doll and have a lot more articulation.

my custom fakey, still working on those lips :)
Here`s my first custom fakey!


Edit: By fakey I mean they are knock offs I got on ebay :P For the purpose of customization, it's a lot less stressful to learn on one of these than it is to start out on an expenive Blythe doll.
