  • Naturally dyed, oh my!
  • Shopping for a medium white tee?
  • Miniature calendar. I dare you to look at just one.
  • I carried David on the right… I assumed it was because I was left-handed but now I am seeing it’s one more item on the fail list.
  • And then a friend linked to this and it brought up so many emotions… oh, and this! I laugh about it now but it almost destroyed me (and David).
  • True story, I almost had a career in marmalade. I was going to call the business Miss Meghan’s Marmalade *a suggestion from a former boss of mine*. The idea is not dead, just on hold.
  • Those trays.
  • Born to Run (cont.)

There is sooooo much good stuff celebrating women this week and it’s hard to edit it all down but here are some good ones to check out:

Okay ladies now let’s get in formation! Have a great weekend! We are likely skiing and I just realized E.T. and Harry and the Hendersons are on Netflix. This changes everything.tumblr_ojueytyvcz1vmr546o1_1280

This low budget commercial for an animal shelter may be the best 3 minutes of entertainment I have seen all year. Please enjoy. And make sure you watch until the end. There is a little east coast for ya.

Have a great weekend!

onward

Happy to be in a new year!

From everything I’ve been seeing and reading lately, it feels as though we are all very okay with saying goodbye to 2016. Great, me too… however, last year brought me another niece, some great trips, and more time spent with friends than I anticipated so I am happy about all that.

There are things that are going to suck about 2017. I have friends who are moving, jobs that are changing, a dog that is aging and family in the States dealing with the election but I am trying to stay positive and think about the good things ahead.

So with that I say onward!

Rather than resolutions, I recently read this article in Business Insider and decided a list of lists would be a more productive way to tackle twenty-seventeen. By simply writing out the 17 lists titles and adding items and checking off items throughout the year, I will hopefully figure out what I really need to make this year special. I hope you have a great year!

My list of 17 lists for 2017

  1. Recipes to try
  2. Restaurants to try
  3. Things I want
  4. Things I wanted but didn’t buy
  5. Places to see / visit / explore in Nova Scotia
  6. Daily to-do list (always changing)
  7. Monthly to-do list
  8. Bucket list (review, update, revise)
  9. Short-term goals
  10. Long-term goals
  11. DIY /home improvement projects (review, update, revise)
  12. Post ideas
  13. Books to read
  14. Movie and shows to watch
  15. People to contact (birthdays, follow-ups, reconnects)
  16. Things to do for others
  17. Things that make me happy

psst. Does anyone else add completed item to a to-do list, just so you can check-off a few things right away?

Friday’s online finds: Inspirational, educational or just silly. Here is what I found this week…

And because it’s almost 2017, I thought it’d be fun to share my top 10 most read posts from 2016. Thank you for reading and I hope you stick around.

  1. A Canadian in America (November) : An essay written by my sister Erin about living/working/raising kids in the States – post election. I am worried that my most read post was not actually mine? Yes.

  2. It’s going down (and up) (November) : Our stairs got a makeover / coverup with a Dash and Albert runner

  3. Uuni fan (May) : Jill bought a Uuni and we ate really good pizza
    IMG_5351
  4. Baby, baby, baby, oooh (May) : Jill had a baby in July… but first, we celebrated with a showerArgyle-Baby-Shower Invite
  5. Calendar Girl (November) : the launch of my HELLO 2017 calendarscalendar-17_01_january-01
  6. Fifty six reasons why i love Ikea (January) : With anticipation of an Ikea finally coming back to Halifax, I went around my house and found 56 items from the store
    Living2
  7. Walking with Aden (May) : My friend Jodie organized a walk in support of William’s Syndrome

  8. Say what? (February) : How well do we know each other in 17 questions

  9. Reality bites (January) : My day to day, working from home
    IMG_4345
  10. All or nothing? (April) : A glimpse into my past – high school mostly – an the infamous NOTHING BOOK

I find it ironic that my all or nothing post made the top 10. My nothing book (a book about nothing but a book about everything) has kind of morphed into this blog. I really don’t have a specific theme and, right now, I am not sure if that’s good or bad.

Have a great weekend! I think I’m not alone is saying hell-yeah to 2017!
