Mash Up!

Today I was meant to go to an all day ringette tournament in a small town. I didn't want to go. I wasn't feeling good and the thought of being cold in a rink seemed like the worst possible idea. The last week has been so busy and I really needed to have a day to rest and settle. I felt guilty, though, for letting my team down. Do you ever do that? Over commit and then realize that you won't be yourself and won't be able to give your best to others if you don't take some time away?

Tonight was my friend's Champagne birthday party. We had avocado chocolate cupcakes, bacon-wrapped cherries, bacon chocolate chip cookies with maple glaze, veggies, fruit pizza and delights. We listened to Girl Talk and Norwegian Recycling. It was pretty fun! It's nice to see all my friends in one place. A lot of us used to work at a bookstore until it closed. We all have such different lives but it's nice to catch up.

dress & leggings: Joe Fresh
cardigan: Ricki's
belt: H&M



Today I'm thankful for clean floors. It's such a delight to walk around on hard wood floors and not pick up little bits of grit on my toes! Makes kitchen dancing that much smoother... more smooth? Um...

LOVE the bright pink with the stripes, and that belt is adorable!

Sometimes commitments are made with the greatest of intentions but then life gets in the way. It happens. Don't be too hard on yourself!

You had me at bacon chocolate chip with maple glaze. mmmmmm bacon.
I know the feeling of having to bow out of an over-committment. Consider it self-care. I like your mash-up! The pink with the strips is sooooooper!!

That belt is uber cute! And avocado chocolate cupcakes? Sounds interesting. I may have to make some of the bacon chocolate chip cookies. They sound so rife with guilty pleasure.
