Oh To Dream...

I had, what I might call, a perfect afternoon last week. I visited our local Lottery Show Home followed by a tapas lunch at one of my favourite restaurants (and my littlest babe slept peacefully the entire time!). This show home is across the street from the water and was designed by the amazing Kelly Deck. The pictures almost don't do it justice - so if you live in the Vancouver/White Rock area it's a must see! The kitchen is a total dream for me and the master bedroom and bath is out of this world. I'm not much of a homebody but if I lived in this house you could never get me to leave! Here are some dream worthy pics of what I've been drooling about. Enjoy...

Master Bath - the marble, the tile, the chandelier, need I say more! Oh yes, all with an ocean view...

This is the master bedroom - I could live in just this space!

The elegant dining room

The kitchen - I'm so in love. I'm imagining cooking here with my favourite people relaxing at the Island...sigh!

Another shot...ohhh, that marble!

I love that there are 2 seating areas, one for TV watching the other for entertaining, so smart!

Another angle - lots of grey, cream, brown. Sophisticated and comfy!

My Lack of Blog Posts!

Is due to these two little cuties! Being a new mom to 2 little girls has been exhausting and all consuming but this past 7 weeks has been the best time of my life! I feel so lucky and can't wait to watch these sisters grow. Thanks to all our amazing friends and family who have brought us food, looked after our kids, cleaned up our kitchen and have been so excited to get to know our newest daughter.

Weekend Agenda: a visit with one of my favourite gals and her little ones, pizza making with my daughter and my girlfriend (might attempt to make homemade dough, we'll see?), some pumpkin carving (that will be on my hubby's agenda), a baby shower and hopefully a few things around the house (have some good blog posts on some fun new items soon!).

Have a wonderful weekend...Enjoy!

Fairy Party!

My girlfriend (for over 23 years - wow, that makes us sound old!) is the queen of party planning. Our birthdays are 6 days apart and we used to hold our Sweet 16 and 21st birthdays at her house. Now, we are both moms to 3 year old girls and she recently hosted a fairy party for her daughter that was not to be forgotten. There was balloons, flowers, poms, a tea party (where she actually served the kids with real china - brave!) and the best part of all -  a 'real' fairy who visited the party to dress up the kids, paint their faces and of course sprinkle some fairy dust on the birthday girl. Here are some pics of this amazing party. Enjoy...

No need for the Martha Stewart poms - all homemade

Delicious cupcakes

Magical visit from the Fairy!
