2. I have a younger sister.

3. My mom passed away awhile ago and she was adopted. I don't have any family on her side.

4. My dads side of the family, however, is quite large. Lots of aunts and uncles and tons of cousins.

9. We had a cat named Muppet and a few doggies.

My Heart belongs in san francisco

I visited San Francisco 2 years ago and fell in love. It's the perfect city and I would love to live there one day. I went through the photos I took on the trip and edited a few of them. I can't wait to visit again.

Lori's Diner = Amazing food!

This is my first Friday Favourites. I will generally be taking things I like from the internet (mostly from my Pinterest) and posting them here every Friday. So let's get started.

This is the cutest owl necklace Jeff got me when he was over in the UK. I also got a smaller one as well :)

Next are these delicious looking chocolate frozen smores from Easy Baked. I could eat ten in one sitting!

Isn't this just the cutest wallpaper? I'm in love with it from Jeannie Jeannie.

And finally, these adorable macaron trinkets that you can find here.

Hope you enjoyed my Friday Favourites :)

Thursday thirteen - romantic dates

Another Thursday, another Thursday Thirteen :) This weeks topic is romantic dates. I met my boyfriend, Jeff almost a year and a half ago and I've never been happier :) Even though we don't go on lots of romantic dates, we still have fun no matter what and I am happy just being with him wherever.
Listed below are things we have done and things I would love to do, enjoy!

1. Movie weekends. Usually every weekend or every other weekend we stay in, make popcorn and watch lots of movies. It's one of my favourite things to do with him.

2. Summer picnics. We had our first picnic a few weekends ago. 

3. Water park fun! We went to Canada's Wonderland last summer and the water park was my favourite. Hopefully we get to go again this summer.

4. Visit Toronto Island. 

5. Lots of beach days!

6. Bonfire nights with all the ingredients to make some delicious smores. 

7. I love our random nights of getting sushi and stuffing ourselves until we can't move.

8. Enjoying choco chills on hot summer days

9. Going on photo adventures.

10. I would love to go go-karting this summer

11. Visit the Toronto Zoo!

I love, love, love summer. Living in Canada we only get a short period of beautiful weather year round. So when spring and summer come around everything in life seems to get better. The hot weather, tanning, swimming, night walks, hanging at the park.. there's so much to do when the weather is nice. 

With that I've decided to write a post on what I want to accomplish this summer. Hope you enjoy it :)

1. Go to a water park
2. Attend lots of bonfires and make lots of smores. 
3. Visit the beach as much as possible
4. Concerts! Go to at least one or two
5. Take as many photos as possible 
6. Find a real design career
7. Go back home to visit
8. Have an awesome birthday! I'm turning 27...oh god. 
9. Go on picnics
10. Get a sweet tan

There you have it. My top 10 things to do this summer! What's on your summer to do list?

I recently opened a new Etsy shop. Here are a few samples of what is available.

I love space and wanted to create a shop based off that. I added the 12 zodiac signs and currently working on adding my favourite places in the world. Custom orders are welcome :)

Muuuuusic Time

Who doesn't love music, seriously?! I found out about these guys from the movie "Going the Distance" with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, one of my favourite movies. If you haven't heard of them definitely check out their album, so good!

Thursday Thirteen

I first came across Thursday Thirteen when I was visiting Aunie Sauce's Blog. I've decided to give it a go. This week my Thursday Thirteen will be thirteen things I would have on a desert Island.

1. If I were stranded on a desert island my number one thing I would want to have is my boyfriend, Jeff. I would definitely need the manly strength for building shelter and getting food. And of course, he is awesome to hang out with and I love him to death.

2. Obviously, food. But if I couldn't have food than I'd want cooking supplies like pots, pans, forks, spoons and knifes. Possibly a BBQ?

3. Endless supply of fresh water.

4. Matches

5. My ipod. Music would make it a much more bearable situation.

6. Sunscreen. Definitely sunscreen.

7. Tent with a sleeping bag.

8. Bug spray.

9. My Mac Book with an endless supply of battery.

10. Cherrios! I love Cherrios. I would need to have my Cherrios.

11. Mr. Zebra. A big, pudgy stuffed animal that I've had for a long time.

12. Scuba equipment. I've never been scuba diving and if I am going to be stranded on an island then it would be the perfect opportunity to learn.

13. Finally, toilet paper and tampons. Those two things would make life a lot easier on an island.

That's it! Hopefully I can keep up this weekly tradition.
