Don't hate me because I look less tired...

Got a long overdue haircut. The hairdresser told me I looked "less tired" afterward. Ummm...backhanded compliment? Anyway, I don't love it...but honestly I very rarely love a haircut. The hairdresser asked me if I would donate my hair to make wigs for cancer (she calculated that she cut off about 11 inches!). So not only do I look less tired, but I feel good for helping a good cause.

We played today. A morning of being silly. An afternoon of getting snowy. A supper of Spiro's Supersub (a Montreal delicacy).

Please excuse the children and I are busy making memories.

Home at last!

The Holidays were extra merry this we celebrated them in our OWN HOUSE!!! We moved in at the beginning of November, and although there are still tons of things that need to be's cute, it's cozy, it's's totally home, sweet, home.

Check out our "before" and "afters".

backdoor/mini mudroom after (unfortunately no "before" pictures of this space).

If you could have only seen (or smelled for that matter) what this place was like before, you wouldn't believe how much work my husband (almost singlehandedly) did.

P.S. check back for pictures of the two bedrooms...i was just too lazy to clean them just to take pictures!
