Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live.  I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them.  I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures.  You can learn more about these houses here: Grimsby Beach - Visitor Info History and Heritage - Village of Grimsby I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo. This home was stunning in person, the picture doesn't do it justice.  The kids wanted to sit on these stools so bad but I wouldn't let them! I had to remind them we were the too look not touch. But I

Friday Five's - It's Not to Early for Christmas Right?!

I'm the worst at keeping a schedule in my person life. During the work day...I am on point with my schedule and to-do lists. I've always said that, and although I'm aware, I just can't seem to get my shit together on this dang blog! Or my workouts. Or meal planning/WW (Weight Watchers). 

I'm posting a Friday Five's article on Saturday morning. This is just how I roll...get used to it friends!

Back to our scheduled programming.....

Is it just me or did the stores kind of skip over Halloween and move straight to Christmas? I swear I say this every year. But this year, maybe because we're still being cautious and not going out as much because of this pandemic, I feel like the stores are all about Christmas decor and holiday gift guides. Not that I mind, I'm not a huge Halloween fan anyway.

This past week was so busy, and we had lots to celebrate. Here's a highlight.

The kids and I took in the beautiful sights of a nearby walking trail with my parents.

My daughter celebrated her First Holy Communion. It was supposed to be in the Spring but COVID-19 had other plans. We didn't get to give her the party we had hoped, but my parents surprised her with a cake after we got home from church. Overall she was super happy and I think all she wanted was to wear a poofy dress anyway! 

We clean up well! 

Soooo I did a thing. I started curating Christmas decor and ornaments already. While I complain that the stores have started Christmas marketing too early...I caved. Drank the Kool Aid. Bought a few Christmas ornaments for myself and my brother's family.


Speaking of Christmas, I also got really really excited about this gift wrap organizer I found on Amazon.ca - no I'm not an affiliate and no I will not make money if you buy it. I am just really really excited to have found an organizer at a very reasonable price point! I get it tomorrow...should I do an unboxing? lol 

It's called: ZOBER Premium Wrap Organizer and it was only $26.99 Canadian...and I get it tomorrow thanks to Amazon Prime! Woohoo
Curly haired girls and ladies in the house...this brush is amazing for detangling after a shower. It doesn't matter how much conditioner I use in my daughter's hair, it is always a birds nest. This brush is a life saver. And rumour has it, Dollarama sells them now.



So there you have it, my Friday Fave's and a taste of what's to come for me for the upcoming Christmas season....lot's of shopping...obviously.

How was your week? Any plans for the weekend?

Join me and a bunch of other awesome bloggers for this Friday Fave's blog hop.
