Friday, it's Friday!

The weatherman is forecasting 30+ degrees today...that's Celsius!  The grass is green, the trees have leaves, and we have bubbles.

Our boy is now sporting a smaller cast, in blue this time, as he continues to heal after his big adventure.

The change in weather this past week inspired a trip to the garden centre, where I lusted after all the things.

Spotted during hubby's travels this week - an iguana on the golf course in Miami, and a moose in Algonquin Park.  That man really needs to get an instagram account.

We've been eating a lot of salads this week.  To encourage healthy eating, and to accommodate a houseful of kids that prefer different salad ingredients, I've resorted to build-your-own salad nights.

I've been wearing capris and sandals.  Yay!

I've been reading The Salt Road.

The warmer temperatures are making me want to break out the popsicle maker, and try a batch of these Whole Fruit Popsicles.

We make a lot of smoothies in this house, but I'm curious about smoothie bowls for breakfast.  They look wonderful, and I've started a Pinterest collection of smoothie bowl recipes.

This Breakfast Cake looks like something I might try this weekend.

Caramelized Bananas with Homemade Vanilla Pudding, yes please!

And I think I want a colouring book.

Happy weekend all, and a very Happy Mother's Day!


  1. ow, 30+ degrees Celsius, that's a lot. I am glad you are enjoying hte warm weather. I love trips to the garden center too, although we don't have a garden. #PoCoLo

  2. Aww we had this weather few days ago and suddenly its cold again! Cant wait for the warm weather to go back! #pocolo

  3. Build your own salad nights are my favorite!
    So are moose. I loved this on Instagram but it's even better to see the photo on my big desktop computer!

    1. Happy belated Mother's Day to you, Jenn! I just read the teaser for Salt Road - it looks good. Are you enjoying it?

  4. That looks so warm and sunny. Love the salad pick and mix idea. Think we need that, although it's the leafy part that N won't eat.


  5. I am in love with the bubble shot. My little man is obsessed with bubbles at the moment. I can never capture them like this though. Beautiful, great round up. #livingarrows

  6. you are reading my mind! I coveted ALL the things at the garden centre. One thing we desperately need is a new outdoor dining table -- on that fits all of us. and decent chairs. I am almost tempted to just get a picnic table!
    Smoothie bowls? I will have to look that up - it sounds amazing.
    Yay for capris and sandals. hard to believe I am standing barefoot on my lawn, where there was just snow 3 weeks ago!
