Friday Favourites

The weather is finally better, and it's a long weekend, my favourite!

Last week I bought some ice cream and cones and we have enjoyed these treats all week.  Mint chocolate, my favourite!

I stopped in at Simons at the Square One mall in Mississauga this week and found a lot of cute things for the home.  When Target left Canada, I was mostly just disappointed to lose all of their home d├ęcor things, but Simons is filling that void.  Some really different designs, and great prices.  I got some new dish cloths, towels, drying mat (with birds!), and some kid-sized oven mitts for E.  I also bought a yellow blanket for the couch to add some fresh colour.

On Wednesday I was lucky to play golf at Glen Abbey in Oakville.  We had a great day of golf and sunny weather. 

A few weeks ago I pinned recipes for overnight oatmeal, and this week converted one of them for hot oatmeal.  I grated a carrot and added it and some cinnamon to my oatmeal before cooking it.  Then I added chopped up fresh pineapple, maple syrup and almond milk.  Delicious!

Yesterday I posted our pancake recipe.  Give it a try this long weekend, you will be reluctant to go back to the boxed pancake mix after trying these!

I came across this verse earlier this week and it has run through my mind a few times.  Sometimes we worry about so many things that we don't have any control over, so we should remember that fear is not from God, instead:

Have a happy long weekend, for those that have one!

Linking up with AndreaErika, and Narci.


  1. Simons is a great store. Nice there is one close for you to shop at. We enjoyed the one in Quebec City. I like your purchases.

  2. I've never tried Simon's before! Super cute items. And that oatmeal sounds yum!!
