Bobbi Brown {My current go-to bronzer: Bobbi Brown’s Golden Light}

This week I got my billionth cold of this season {my immune system seems to have gone away for the winter} so although it was a relatively normal week everything kind of blurred into one big long day and I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that today is, in fact, Friday. This weekend we have our annual Oscar’s party and I am giddy with excitement {I’m going to call it early and predict that the award for Best Actor will go to Matthew McConaughey!}. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

If you can’t beat {it}, join {it}. That is my current motto for winter since it has seriously been a ridiculous winter here. This Christmas I received my first real snow boots and although they have already come in quite handy, I am planning on really getting some juice out of them. As mentioned before, I have never been a fan of winter but I can’t keep being angry at the weather so this week I really have considered giving winter sports a try (I might be getting slightly brainwashed by the Winter Olympics craze). Regardless,I do need to start enjoying the snow and will try by participating in lovely snowy adventures such as making cool snowmen and if I get crazy enough maybe I’ll venture onto the hills and give snowboarding a try.

{Sorauren Park has become the epitome of Winter Wonderland. It is a beautiful park to begin with but lately it has had cute and quirky snowman scattered throughout, families ice skating and dogs running around. They also have a year-around farmers market so it really just is the perfect little refuge in the bustling city}

afterlight (81) {Living right around the corner from Glory Hole Doughnuts has been an absolute highlight this week. They have the most creative doughnuts around and no matter the flavour, they do not disappoint! This week I tried their cherry filled doughnut and yes, it was as scrumptious as it looks}

afterlight (83) {His little sweater keeps him warm and happy and makes me smile – and also a little jealous. Does anyone know where I can find a human (female) version of this?}

Stay warm and have a snow-tastic weekend my friends!

{Our newest addition to our Christmas collection – a little German smoker}

Oh the weekend! This has been a long and rough week {we had to fumigate our apartment, which included packing everything up, Ernie chewed everything that we left on the floor or at nose distance and I thought more than once “It’s Friday!” when really it was only Tuesday *sigh*} so I, for once, am thankful that it is over. This weekend I will be doing some more Christmas baking and going up to Stouffville to see our church’s annual Christmas play and to visit friends. Although it is already looking like it will be a jam packed weekend, I’m trying to convince Mike to take me to the movies; now that the Golden Globe nominations are out, we have a lot of catching up to do before February {aka Oscars time}!
