A Few Things...

 Lemon Ice Cubes: Perfect for adding to glasses of water or ice tea

Sundance Pink Lemonade Wine: The perfect blush wine that is very suitable for summer and not nearly as sweet as most blush wines

Fixing up an old picture:  My grandmother painted this picture when she was younger (it is painted on velvet).  My husband recently painted the old, tarnished gold frame to a bright white to give it a way more modern look. It is now hanging in our bedroom rather than collecting dust in the basement.

An inspiring note: To keep around, so I can look at whenever I am feeling negative or stressed.

 My boy scoring his first 2 goals in soccer!  He was soooo proud, and so were mom & dad!

What are some things making you currently making you smile???

Happy Father's Day!

My weekend was relatively boring, as I spent most of it at work.  I did spend some time with my dad to give him his father's day gift and the usual giant bear hug.  I am very close with my dad and see him almost everyday!  My hubby was treated to a delicious dinner at one of his favourite restaurants.

Father's Day dinner for my hubby
To start: Bourbon Pulled Rib Poutine
This was sooo good!

My hubby's main course:
Rib eye with prawns in a chipolte sauce
Also delicious! The Creek in Cathedral Bistro is one of my city's best restaurants, and they never disappoint!

My husband does not eat dessert (except the odd bowl of ice cream) I know, what is wrong with him right? I on the other hand, have a dangerous sweet tooth, however I forgot to take a picture of dessert, until it was already half eaten!  Oops, guess I got excited.

How was your weekend?  How did you spend Father's Day??
