Friday Favourites- fully loaded

Happy Friday! This has been the first week of school and extracurricular for us so we are ready for some weekending. Mama and babes (and always dad) are ready for some R&R. 

Summer is officially gone. Like with everyone else this summer has been a different ones but so many different things have brought joy to us.... listed below in no particular order!

1- After many frogs, we found our ideal patio set. We sat on many, many different sets and looked at many different sources. My problem is that for the aesthetic we are looking for, wicker didn't fit into the look and feel we are going for in our back yard. This mid century modern one fit the bill. 

Forgive the not too expert pictures.

2- After many fitbit years, I converted to the Apple Watch and never looked back. I think it's a more accurate representation of overall fitness vs just steps. And I love looking at how many miles/km we walk. 

3- Speaking of walks, we've never done so many walks as a family. In our hood, using Alltrails, and exploring different neighbourhoods and trails. 

C is getting so big! She looks like me in this pic.

4- Looking for a small to mid size dog and can't find one so the kids became obsessed with getting a hamster instead. Hello Mochi... she has been a welcome addition to our family - hamster bedding everywhere and all. And yeah, D is still out numbered. Shout out to C who did all the research and budgeting before and is the primary caregiver. Honourable mention to A who is obsessed with her!!!

Yep, she is on my head

5- And finally yay for home grown and locally grown food. We have enjoyed the spoils of our garden this summer. Our plethora of tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, yellow beans, Swiss chard, kale, strawberries and herbs brought us so much joy! The watermelon, blueberries, canteloupe, pumpkin, snow peas and squash... not so much. It's a learning process for sure and we can't wait to try again next year :-)

Have a wonderful weekend, loves!!

Linking up with Andrea. 


  1. I love that patio set!! Okay, so we are considering Apple Watches as Christmas presents this year, you like it then? Worth it? I've never had a fitness tracker before so I don't know if I care that much and I wonder if I'd enjoy it or not.

  2. Those girls are getting more and more beautiful by the day and so are you! I absolutely love your patio set, the pillows are so pretty. I’m glad you got this first week behind you and I hope you get to relax this weekend mama!

  3. I'm so glad you were able to create some great memories together. I love the patio furniture you went with. You are brave with the little hamster on your head. Way to go with your garden this year!

  4. I wish I had a patio! So cool. Those flowers are amazing!

  5. Great pick on the patio set! And I love the colors of the pillows. Enjoy the new family pet! I'm sure the kids are excited. We are also getting adjusted to back to school and the start of activities again. Have a great and restful weekend!

  6. Wow I can't believe how tall C is getting, and LOVE that new patio set! So pretty <3
