My Week

July 2, 2012



Last week was a busy one. The eldest baby graduated - my in-laws were here visiting, endured  enjoyed a long graduation commencement, helped her get all gussied up for her prom and then I chaperoned an after-grad party from midnight until 6 AM. Yup - I am too old for that. It took me until Saturday to recover!

Today is our holiday Monday, yesterday we celebrated Canada Day! It has been an incredibly lazy weekend. After all the hoopla of end-of-the-year activities, we are just plained pooped.  But I am going to work on a few projects for the One Room Challenge this week!

Here are some photos of my week

Baby girl's amazing hair-do. 

Kudos to the stylist who took about 90 minutes to create this amazing do.




Last Monday we walked over the Lion's Gate Bridge and the seawall with the in-laws. It was a nice diversion from all the festivities.




 Friday, my 13 year old son, yes my son, made focaccia and gnocchi from scratch. 

Yum!




This week I hope to get my butt organized! 

What plans have you got up your sleeve?

XO Barbara
