The Weekend vol. 7

Happy Monday nuts!

I hope that everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend. While I was working for some of it, I still managed to fit in quite a bit over the past 2.5 days. I hosted a Christmas kick-off tea-party with my besties (more on that in a coming post), had brunch with my papa and conducted our annual holiday card photoshoot, which proved to be a hilarious struggle as always. A few outtakes for your enjoyment (please note how unhappy Jasper is to be involved)…



We also got to take in the HUGE Redblacks Grey Cup win! A massive congratulations to the team on their first ever Grey Cup! We have loved taking in games at Lansdowne over their first three seasons and we can’t wait to watch this winning team again next season. Here’s hoping for a repeat as the 2017 Grey Cup will be hosted in Ottawa for Canada’s 150th. R-NATION!

My man has always lived by the rule that Christmas starts as soon as the Grey Cup is played… so bring it on. Check back for lots of holiday-themed posts over the next few weeks! But for now, a few fun things from around the web.
