Monday! It's here! :)

And it's oh so marvelous ;)

Since I'm back in Saskatchewan spending time with my family for the long Thanksgiving weekend, I have so many marvelous things to share with you! I love being with my family and we've been having all sorts of fun together! Here's what I've been up to :) 

Sushi Dinners

My family and I went out to celebrate my Dad's birthday by having a big sushi feast!
I got to share some sweet shrimp, also known as ebi, with my Dad! It was his first time having ebi, so I was excited to introduce him to something new :) 

Tea Dates


I'm not the only DAVIDsTEA lover in my family; we all are! We've been to DAVIDsTEA a few times since I've been home and always enjoy our teas together <3 

I have way too many favourite teas from DAVIDsTEA, but my Mom's favourite is Movie Night or Red Velvet Cake and my Dad's favourite is Toasted Walnut or anything chai! 

Girl Time

My Mom and I have been spending a lot of time together…

We've gone for pedicures…

We've went downtown shopping…

and made a few purchases of course ;) 

We've also snuggled together many nights on the couch. Mom snuggles are the best! 

Thanksgiving Dinners

Let's just say that turkey didn't stand a chance ;)

Last night, I enjoyed my first of two Thanksgiving dinners. Tonight I'll be having Thanksgiving at my Grandma's house along with the rest of my family which includes many aunts, uncles, and cousins :) 

I will never tire of turkey. I'm kind of sad I only have two Thanksgiving dinners ;) Thank goodness for leftovers! 

I'm obviously really enjoying being home and I'm so lucky to have another full day here after today! My Wednesday class got cancelled, so that means I don't have to be in London until Thursday! My Mom and I cancelled my original flight which left on Tuesday, so I could have an extra day here! Now I won't be leaving until Wednesday! :) 

Have a marvelous Monday, friends! :) 

Love always,

Aww…I’m SO happy that you’re enjoying the time at home with your family. I knew you would, of course! My parents came and surprised me with a short visit today and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was! My momma and I got manicures and we all enjoyed an amazing brunch. Family really is the best!
Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend! Eat lots of delicious leftovers for me.

Oh, and I agree- nothing beats mommy cuddles!

Aw, you and your family are precious! I’m so glad you had a great time. My mom came to visit me in Toronto, and i’m going to be going home to visit the whole family next weekend (mom’s overjoyed about that one too haha). We went to David’s, and the spa, and had an adorable little vegetarian thanksgiving last night!
Love your blog, as always, meg!
