9. Clear backyard and bring in fill It still looks like a woodlot. The trees are down, but the stumps are still there.

Random Thursday Post

Basically, I'm writing this post because I've been super silent on here for the last month and partly because I need two posts for the month of June in order to keep up with my yearly goals. Yup, I'm cheating a little.

But I am going to share some pictures, so you shouldn't be too mad at me. I planned on doing a whole bathroom reveal post but I don't have time for that right now. Maybe in the next few weeks?

1. This is my newest favourite chocolate treat. So good. And since it's organic, I pretend it's healthy.


2. I saw this snack hack on Facebook and thought I would try it. Use an old applesauce container to put peanut butter in and have a handy little snack on the go, all kept together in one jar. I've been taking it to work and feeling very cool indeed.


3. I got my haircut recently (just a trim) and felt so cute afterwards. But since I wasn't actually going anywhere I thought I would take a few selfies at home. I love hairdresser hair.


4. We are looking at getting a sectional for the basement and this is the one I currently have my eye on. I haven't actually gone and sat on it yet, but I like the look of it and it has a pull out couch!


5. We signed up for a vegetable CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) this year and I picked up our first basket on Tuesday. SO EXCITING! Seriously, it totally was the highlight of my week.


And there you have it, a quick little post to share some fun pictures and sneak in at the end of the month to keep fulfilling my goals. Sneaky sneaky me.
