Shopping Date Night.

Not just a little chilly, but extremely frigid. I find it hard to get motivated to go out at night and get the last few items that we need before Christmas. This particular night that we went, it was -33°C/-27°F with the windchill! However, my husband and I were not going to let a little cold get in our way of our shopping date night.

We ended up going to three our favourite haunts to get supplies for blogging, crafting, and wrapping presents. By the end of our excursion, we were walking icicles. We made one more stop to pick up a movie, then came back to our cozy little home to curl up and watch it. At the end of the day, I really don’t mind how low the temperature is, as long as I am contented and warm and inside with my family. :-)))

  3. Hahah, wow those Elmo pinatas lined up on the shelf in your 6th picture down! Like something out of a David Lynch movie or Twin Pics, eerie but amusing at the same time.

  4. OMG -33C ? It sounds like you are in the North Pole.😀

  5. Wow, I actually can’t believe anyone would leave the house when it’s that cold (Sydney winters are positively balmy by comparison) but on the plus side, it looks like there were no holiday crowds to deal with!

  6. Oh wow the snow! I hope you’re keeping wrapped up warm! Have a wonderful christmas! x

    Do you reside a la North Pole? Even the shops are empty. Move south baby. Or east or west.

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
