Five Things Friday

It's Friday!!!! And you all know what that means, don't you? Time for some random photos and thoughts from your favourite Canadian housewife.

1. Spying on the new house showed a super exciting SOLD sign out front! When my mom was visiting, we had to show her the new house and may have slowly driven by it three times. Yup, we're cool stalkerish like that. Seeing the sign was pretty fun though.


2. Colouring soothes my soul. And my new colouring book makes my life better. Every picture I colour in it is my new favourite, but I think I really do mean it for this one. So pretty.


3. I went to a Beth Moore conference a few weeks back and it was incredible. There were over 5,000 women at this event and it felt amazing to be a part of it.


4. Date nights in the garage can be fun too. Last weekend Dan had to sort through his copper stash (he trades it in for money) but I wanted to watch The Big Bang Theory, so we compromised. He brought the tv out to the garage and we watched Big Bang while sorting copper. Perfect way to spend a Friday evening together!


5. I got cute new boots and I am totally adorable in them! Plus, our storage unit is getting full. Gosh we have a lot of stuff. We move in a little over a week, it's creeping up on us! (Don't you agree about the boots though?)


Anyone else have any random thoughts to share? What have you all been up to lately?

  1. Love your garage date night! :) my random thought to share is that I'm knitting Christmas stockings for us. And so far Mike's is looking like it might be double the size of ours!

    1. The garage date night was pretty fun. And I think it's awesome that you are knitting Christmas stockings, even if Mike's is going to be huge. He gets more presents anyways, right? ;)

  2. I machine knitted Christmas stockings for ds dd and neph and niece when they were small. Now DS (22) has a gf. I so want to do her one, but I haven't used the knitting machine for years!

    Boots are always cool. I wear boots in the winter, sandals in the summer. Not much use for shoes!

    I'm cracking on with work as much as possible as I have a few days at the knitting and stitching show next week helping out a friend. Also am staying with friends so that will be great :)

    1. I've never used a machine knitter and the thought of it kind of seems overwhelming. And just a little heads up, make sure you ask your DS's gf before making her one. My MIL wanted to crochet me a matching stocking to the rest of Dan's family and I was much to sentimental and wanted to keep my childhood one. Just my two cents.

  3. Reading blogs and knitting boot socks. They are extra long with a nice top band that folds over the top of your boot. Boots these days aren't as warm as they need to be as my daughter keeps reminding (hint hint) me. Snow in the wings!

    1. Book socks sound amazing! And I totally agree with your daughter, cute boots are usually not that warm. Good thing you're taking care of that for her.
