Today is Family Day here in Ontario and I’m spending it relaxing and checking out some local events, but I thought I’d pop in with a quick post and say hi! I’ve seen this survey on a few blogs lately and I thought it would be fun to share it myself.

Household chore I actually enjoy:
Laundry…especially when it’s just come out of the dryer and is still warm. I don’t mind folding laundry when it feels so cozy! The machines in our apartment building’s laundry room are really bad (and expensive!) but thankfully both of our parents live fairly close by and we’re able to do laundry whenever we visit.
Biggest house disaster:
Our bedroom. One side is nice with the headboard, picture frames and bedside lights, but the other side is our messy bookshelf and storage boxes. You can’t see it from the doorway, so only we see it, which I can live with for now.
Before company arrives, I hide:
All the clutter. If we have company coming over quickly and I don’t have time to organize all the odds and ends or put them all away, I take our laundry basket, go around and grab everything out of place and then tuck the basket away in the bedroom and close the door. After company lives, I can take the time to go around and empty the basket to put everything back where it belongs.
Most recent music download:
I can’t remember the last time I downloaded music. I usually listen to Songza and can always find some kind of a playlist that I like on there.
The last thing I bought online:
I recently signed up for Fabletics and I’ve been loving the outfits they send. It’s a monthly subscription company co-founded by actress Kate Hudson. The fabric is so soft and designs are stylish. My first order came in and the sizes were off, but they let me exchange it easily and for free. The second order got here two days after I ordered it and everything fit perfectly. If you’re looking for some workout clothes that are fun and casual, check them out!
I hate to shop for:
Clothing (hence the online shopping above). I find malls boring and full of all the same things. It’s even worse if I know I need to find something specific like a dress for an event. I would love it if perfectly fitting clothing that I love would just magically appear in my closet.
Favourite family ritual:
Neighbourhood walks. We haven’t been able to go on them very much lately with all the cold weather we’ve been having, but the rest of the year we try to do them often. We live in such a lovely historical neighbourhood and it’s always fun to go around and admire the big houses.
I sleep in:
Long sleeve t-shirts and yoga pants. Lately I’ve been bundling up in a sweatshirt too – it’s just too cold!
I have a style crush on:
Jennifer Aniston. Her style always comes across as simple, casual and effortless, but still classy. Even in just jeans and a t-shirt, she manages to make it look nice!
I’m currently reading:
Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins. I’ve mentioned before that I have a soft spot for romance novels and this one has been a fun read so far. The kind of book you can read for a few minutes here and then put down. I tend to go back and forth between books like this that offer entertainment value and then more serious books.
How did I ever live without:
These little family we’ve started. I can’t remember what it was like before Garrett and the dogs came into my life. We have so much fun together and I love them all to bits. I’m always happy for days like today when we get to spend some time together, even if it’s just piling up on the couch together for a movie.
