Life via Instagram

I'm linking up with Jeannett today to share my Instagram pictures from the week. Or in my case this week and last weekend;) I get behind sometimes. 

 This necklace was one of my first Lisa Leonard purchases. I got the M initial for my late grandmother Marguerite. I ordered this maybe a year after she had passed away from breast cancer and the hurt was still fresh. I loved being able to represent her this way. I think of her every time I put it on.
 Last week was rough, and I was just so completely exhausted by the end of it. These treats after work were necessary. Oh and decaf caramel frappucino's are my new love!

 Poor Huck had surgery to have a couple things removed;) Friday night all he wanted was his fluffy pillow, and to be next to me.

 Another necessary treat last Friday;) Hagen Daz strawberry ice cream is SO good! Oh and that gorgeous bracelet I'm wearing is from Lisa Leonard's new Hope(full) line. She's doing some amazing work with this line, check it out!

 Saturday morning, I woke up to this. Yes they are both on my pillow. They managed to leave me that small space in the bottom left to rest my head.

 Running errands in my new cowl from Melody Joy Designs! I also have this one in red. I love her work, these cowls are so so soft and keep me warm! Check out her nest jewellery too (I have a necklace and it's very special to me).

 I tried Mucho Burrito for the first time on Saturday. It's been in Ottawa for maybe 3 or more years now, and for some reason I was never feeling it. I am here to tell you that I have been CRAZY for 3 years because this was hands down one of the best freaking burritos I have ever had!! I loved that I got to choose my toppings, and they had so many other options like gourmet tacos, salad bowls etc. I HAVE to go back!

Did a bit of thrifting last weekend and I really, really wanted to take this beautiful sewing machine home with me! It was attached to the table underneath it, and since we live in an apartment I just couldn't figure out where on earth we would put it! Sigh.

 First signs of spring around here. These are the tiniest little blue flowers poking through the soil. I was so excited to see them. After today's freak snow storm though, I'm sure they've gone back into hiding:( I'm hoping next week things will turn around!

 While I mostly failed at my attempts to eat healthy this week....this breakfast made up for it. So happy to have berries back in season and tasting good again.

My Pen and Paint print arrived this week and I am SO in love with it! Lindsay is so talented, I want so many more prints from her shop! Also inspired to get back to some drawing of my own:)

This picture wasn't taken with my phone, but I posted it on Instagram for National Siblings Day. My siblings mean so so much to me.

This weekend is going to be filled with some girl time with my friends, yummy meals out, cooking, painting and hopefully cleaning. In the meantime I'm patiently waiting for the snow to melt (again) and looking forward to the warm temperatures in the forecast for next week!
