Monday Musings

It's Monday.

We had a great weekend. I had a wonderful time at my crop night at The Paperie on Friday night and managed to get a number of layouts accomplished. I even killed two Studio Calico kits in the process!

Here's one of the layout's I made Friday night.



This is a layout about the Whalesbone restaurant in Ottawa. We had lunch there in June before we moved back home. It was delicious- fish & chips and lobster benedict with homemade ice cream sundae for desert! Seriously yummy. I used little hipstagram photos and a Studio Calico kit with a bit of divine twine for the title banner!

I went out with a few of the girls after the crop for some late night snacks at Boston Pizza. It was delicious and the company was even better. We chatted, especially about the retreat, and I'm even more excited for a weekend retreat coming up in a few weeks.

Saturday we puttered around and yesterday we ran a 5km race-another personal best for me and M. I need to give a shout out to my friend Katie as well. She ran a 10km race in Ottawa and had her own personal best this weekend! Great work Katie! Check out her blog because she is truly an inspiration!

We also babysat yesterday afternoon. Our best friend's are here for three months from Ottawa and we are so excited to see Baby Liam. He's my Godson and he's getting christened this coming Sunday! We're pretty excited.

So, the week has started. This time next week October will be ending and we will almost be in NOVEMBER! Whaaaaa?

Enjoy your last week of October folks! November is coming!
