Happy Weekend!

This week, Dane and I took some holidays and spent half a week in Ottawa. There is nothing like being in our nation's capital on Canada Day! Patio drinks in the Market, an amazing fireworks display, and a great, patriotic vibe throughout the city. It was a bit rainy on Wednesday, but all was forgiven by sunny Thursday.

We're heading back to town tomorrow and plan to have a restful weekend, catching up on work and chores around the house. Hope you have a great weekend, however you spend it! If you have some time to click around, here are some fun reads from around the web...

High School Me is so happy about this

This week in massive controversies

Choosing Champagne Glasses.

My mum is a glass collector and seller (check out her blog and her wares ).

As a follow-up to yesterday's post, she's been kind enough to share her expertise on how to choose a champagne glass...

How to Drink Champagne.

It's almost Canada Day! How are you going to celebrate?

Other than a few regrettable nights in my 20s, I'm not a huge partier. However, I will use any excuse to pop a bottle of bubbly - birthdays, work successes, New Year's Eve, Tuesdays...

Travel Reads.

After sifting through reviews and recommendations, I've chosen four books to read on our upcoming Ireland holiday.

Happy Weekend!

Woo, it's Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Dane and I are going to lay low tonight - I think red wine and Orange is the New Black are in our future. Tomorrow I'm sneaking in a visit with Tushara and her sweet baby before I settle in for a weekend of work. Sigh. Fingers crossed for sunshine!

In the meantime, here's what I was clicking this week...

Perfect nap spot

I never do. You?

Natural deodorant challenge

How many have you tried? (7 for me - I have work to do!)

Janet made one of these last week - yum

Tent 2.0

Nerd out, Potterheads!

You are what you eat - interesting piece

Having some sprinkles, friend?

Ah, me too.

P.S. I just joined Instagram! (Is it weird that I follow this account?)

The Perfect Charcuterie Board.

Despite my love of cookbooks, I'm not much of a cook. In order to bridge the gap between my lack of culinary prowess and my love of entertaining, I've had to hone my charcuterie board skills over the years.

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Dane did some balcony gardening on Saturday, then we celebrated an early Father's Day with his parents here. Sunday we went to Janet and Mike's for a Game of Thrones season finale party. So many emotions! Tonight we're heading to Princess Cinemas to see Welcome to Me. Have you seen this movie? It has received mixed reviews, but I'm intrigued...

Have a great week! 

Speaking of Kristen Wiig, will you see this movie?

Perfect host(ess) gift

Could you live in a teeny tiny home?

These mini-cosmetics were everywhere this week (wouldn't they be perfect for travel?)

These are incredible

Janet made these sandwiches for the GoT party (inspired by this delicious movie!)

Who is definitely dead in Game of Thrones (spoiler alert...)
