Fall day in Edmonton

September 27, 2014

Well, fall is officially here and it's nothing but gorgeous!
I had the day to myself today and I definitely took advantage of it.
Not to get to girlie on you, but I painted my nails did a hair wrap and just relaxed for the most part. I also threw in a little bike ride in our lovely river valley, which is always my favourite thing to do. With it being only 4 degrees today, it definitely got the lungs burning and my cheeks rosy.

We all need that from time to time. Sometimes I get lost of the hustle and bustle of life, running from work to soccer, to errands to the gym; I think you get my gist.
My fiancé and I have tried to get the wedding planning started and let me tell you, thank goodness for small weddings. I really don't know how people handle the stress of large weddings!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone and remember, life is good!

Top 10 Dr.Seuss Quotes

September 16, 2014

If you know me well, then you know I absolutely love anything inspirational. Those cheesy stories, the quotes floating around the internet, and any other kind of book or event that sparks my want to be better and do better. My love for this famous author is definitely not a new thing and I'm not afraid to admit it.

I remember being a little kidlet running around shouting out Dr.Seuss quotes. "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish" while I beg my mum to read it again. I had a ton of his books lining my little book shelf and to this day I have kept some around for my future little ones.

Dr.Seuss has always been one of my favourite authors and that will never change. They reflect so much of what is real in life that I am always referencing them when I need a pick me up.

Below are my top 10 quotes from the man himself.

1) "Think and wonder, wonder and think"

2) "Sometimes the questions are complicated and sometimes the answers are simple"

3) "From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere"

4) "A persons a person, no matter how small"

5) "Only you can control your future"

6) "If you never did, you should. Things are fun and fun is good"

7) "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind"

8) "Oh, the things you find if you don't stay behind"

9) Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one sliver that is youer than you"

10) "If things start happening, don't worry. Don't stew. Just go right along, you'll start happening too"

I don't care how old anyone is, there isn't a single person in this world that can't relate to these quotes and that's why I love him as a writer and author. We are all just kids masked how the stresses of life.

I plan on reading my future children all the Dr.Seuss books and I hope they learn the same lessons from him that I did!

Frugal wedding

September 3, 2014

Hi there! Turns out I haven't posted in a while…oops! Well, to get you updated on what's going on, I recently got engaged to my best friend and I couldn't be happier! 

Be prepared for many DIY and minimalist wedding posts in the future. One things that we have always wanted was a wedding that didn't cost much, but was all about us and what we wanted, with close and friends there to celebrate with us. We definitely aren't going with many traditional wedding ideas and we are so excited about it.

Do any of you have any frugal wedding ideas you'd like to share? or any ways to have money will planning this fun day? let me know! :)
