store bought bones

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset​A few weeks ago, Geoffrey and I took a rare trip into town together and spent the day running errands in preparation for our new home. We made it a prerogative to pick out our remaining bathroom lights, as well as our fridge, stove, washer, and dryer. In addition, we also had to meet a contractor out at our place first thing in the morning. In between all of that, I was also making deliveries for Potomac Trading Post, Ltd. Talk about a busy morning!

Then in true Emory form, I went home and found similar lighting for a fraction of the price online. Why do I even bother going shopping in person?

I’ve had my eye on a combo washer and dryer unit for a few years now, and because we saved so much money on our fridge and stove, we decided to splurge on the w/d unit. I’m so excited!

  1. Congratulations on your new home! I’ve been feeling very “nesty” lately and so ready to move into a space that is all mine! Not that I don’t love my roommates… :P

    • Ha! Thanks Chris. Yes, the silver fridge is ours. I was initially going to go with a Smeg or Elmira, but our kitchen was slowly becoming more commercial looking and less vintage. When I came across this 7′ tall fridge, for 1/3 of the price of the other two, I couldn’t resist. That and a double oven, we should be all set. ;-)

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
