August 18th, 2011 | Red Velvet Pancakes and Staff Nights Out: InstaWeekly

I’m cheating a bit, the pictures of my coworkers and I were taken by another coworker… on a normal camera. They were too cute not to share though!

The past 2 weeks were super fun! This week I made delicious red velvet pancakes, went out with some of the best co-workers in the world whom I truly love, did some geocaching (that’s the log book! I didn’t have a pen to sign it), met a magician randomly while waiting for a cab, went to The Hootenanny on Hunter, & indulged in some amazing food. Oh, and I also bought a tea mug the size of my face. Adore.

ALSO!!! This is craziness!!! Rosy from Raindrops on Rosy is giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to Mod Cloth!!! Go and enter! :) Good luck everyone!

August 6th, 2011 | Worried pups, sleepless nights, and a giveaway!

It’s time for another InstaFriday!!! Man, I haven’t done one in a while. So I won’t lie, this is a little bit from other weeks too. I’ve been super busy with work shops for work, being sick and consuming food.

Becky got spayed today, Kodee’s a little confused and worried about what’s going on. My insomnia has been especially bad these past few weeks.

Been working on my sketchbook project some more. Above is the “introduction” page. Also it should be noted that fabulous deer ring I stole from my sister. I’m getting one myself tomorrow.

Recieved my inspiration package from Kaitlyn in the mail!!! :D

Summer heat means migraines for me :( not fun. What IS fun are great shows & summer concerts.

Also, a while ago on one of my instagram posts was the making of a lovely little phone case my sister made. Here is what the finished product looks like:

And guess what?! You can win a custom made one!!! My sister is having her first Giveaway over on her blog, so go enter!!!

We went to the Toronto Islands for a Surprise birthday party!! It was so much fun, we spent the day playing badminton, volleyball, flying kites, blowing bubbles, eating great food & finally sparklers!

Sushi!!! Avocado & Cucumber, Kamikaze, Crispy Spicy Salmon & California rolls!

Deep fried banana & Ice cream for desert! Above is my sister, Lauren, she had Green Tea Ice cream.
