My house survey

I received this ‘challenge’ via e-mail! It’s just some cute little questions that you might not think to ask others about otherwise. And it’ll give you a little insight to the rest of my life! After reading through, I’d love for you all to take the time to fill it out as well. You can reply through a comment or even post it on your own blog to share with the world wide web!

Household chore I actually enjoy…

The thing with me is, I LOVE when things are clean and in order to my house. If there are dirty dishes, laundry lying about, or even really dusty counter tops, there is something in me that wants to cringe. The conflict here is that I actually don’t enjoy one bit of cleaning…. However I know it’s just something that has to get done for my sanity. Luckily, Colt’s feelings are similar and he helps out a lot! But, if I absolutely had to pick, I would say that I enjoy vacuuming! Mainly because it’s easy enough to turn up the tunes and dance all over while doing it. 🙂

Before company arrives I…

Hide the doggy toys and put my dishes away! The dog toys in my home are quite plentiful, especially now that we have 2. Some times there are even socks lying around that the dogs are weirdly obsessed with playing with! It’s my quick-tidy method so that the house looks half decent.

I hate to shop for….

BRAS! Ughhh, don’t get me wrong. I love getting new bras, it’s just the act of having to actually try them on that bugs me. It doesn’t help that I seem to always struggle with the sizing and need assistance!

I have a style crush on…

I have to say either Emma Watson because she is so elegant and timeless and sophisticated. Or Blake Lively, who always seems to effortlessly rock any sort of trend and always so well put together. I have to say I also follow Jessica Alba on instagram and I love her style as I feel like I can relate to it the most! It consists of a lot of trendy clothing but also many comfortable pieces mixed in, like leggings and tights and flowy tops. I live for comfy clothes! Yoga leggings every day.

How did I ever live without….

My dog. My friends (although that wasn’t for long as my closest friends have been in my life since our kinder years), my boyfriend. All have significantly changed my life and shaped me into being the person I am today. I never thought that I would even be as much of a dog person as I am today, I love my puppy so unconditionally and it shows a whole other side to living life more selflessly.

Things I’m Loving Monday 11

It was a fun-filled weekend with friends! I got a chance to get out and be active with colt and went on an adventurous hike at a nearby mountain called Flat Top. We also got to see a pretty awesome show on Saturday night with a few of our friends called ‘Dueling Piano’!!

It was a show where you can request ANY song you’d like and they play it off-hand! It was some pretty impressive talent they showed and made for some great evening entertainment.
Sunday was a designated lazy day. The weather was crazy here – it SNOWED!!!!!!!! So we spent majority of the day cooped up inside and watching Halloween movies in preparation for this week (so excited!)

Workout

I’ve been sticking with the Jamie Eason program pretty darn well the last 4 weeks, but today I felt like I wanted to switch it up. It was supposed to be a ‘leg day’ but I opted for a strength/circuit regime from PBFingers !

It made for a great sweat session this morning. Try it out!

Things I’m Loving
Tribal leggings

tribal legging

I purchased these things for diiiiirt cheap – 7 bucks!!! From Forever 21. They actually feel so nice and I’ve been wanting a pair of tribal or patterned leggings for a while. I like the fact that they are black and white because they’ll go with many different colours and outfits.
Contests (and winning!)

Did I tell you guys I won a contest?? I believe I did. But I still can’t get over it 🙂 Soo excited to share with you the goodies I get.
Old episodes of goosebumps

goosebumps

On Sunday Colt and I watched a series of old Goosebumps episodes and were lazy to the max. These shows honestly scared me sooo much as a kid! Now watching them I find them hilariously corny. We definitely got a good laugh out of the ones we watched.
Halloween crafting

Working in a school has many perks – including fun holiday themed crafts! There will be many more to come this week. Last week we made mummy mason jars and decorated our door sppooookkyy! Check it out!
Animal rescues!

Not me this time! My sister. Her new dog is a 10 month old husky and arctic wolf cross!! His name is Jack.

I am a firm believer in adopting pets!

What are you guys loving this week? Let me know 🙂
