What I Wore: Chambray & White Lace

Can we take a minute and talk about how much I love this chambray shirt? I have been on the hunt for one for over a year but button up shirts and I don't get along. The curse of a curvy body means I'm never able to find one to fit over my chest without gaping, or even worse, finding one that fits over my ginormous hips. With that said... I have found my miracle shirt (!!!) I have seriously worn this shirt more times than I care to admit, but I can't help it, I love the shirt so darn much! I especially love how easily I'm able to mix it with other things in my wardrobe. Maybe it's time I try to find more button up shirts instead of writing them off completely.

Apart from the shirt, I've been busy with my sister trying to build a patio for my mom's back yard. This thing is monstrously huge and takes up almost half the backyard. Yikes! We sure have our work cut out for us. Yesterday we ripped up all the sod which was a feat in itself because everything is still so wet in the backyard meaning it weighs a ton! Then in the next week we are hoping to dig out the patio area and start laying the limestone, sand and bricks (and potentially build a fire pit). Our goal is to have it done by mothers day. Think we can do it? I'm hoping we can.

Truthfully I can't wait to get this patio built because I want to have barbeques and parties so badly! I love having a place to relax outside in the spring and summer and once this patio is done I have a feeling I'm going to spend all my free time out there. I'm also going to need a place to relax because I have a feeling my body will be super sore after all the digging and heavy lifting, haha. It's going to be worth it though! I just have to keep telling myself that!

( ♥ ) birthday surprises! Though this one nearly gave me a heart attack and I ~may~ have screamed bloody murder when I opened my door because I startle VERY easily! It was still a nice surprise from my sister though! And she got a good laugh out of my reaction.

( ) This moss graffiti, or any moss graffiti in fact. I love the way it looks and how you can manipulate it!

( ) The show Bomb Girls! I'm so glad it was picked up for a second season which is a rare thing because it's a Canadian show. What's even cooler is you can now watch it in America too! It's all about women in the 40s helping out with the war effort in a bomb factory. I like it because it deals with all sorts of topics like women's rights, what it was like to be gay in the 40s, and the horrible treatment of certain nationalities during the war. It also holds a special spot in my heart because my Great Grandma was a bomb girl herself!

( ) These cherry trees. I have to remember to visit the botanical gardens again because they have a huge field of them and cherry trees are my favourite!

( ) these feet! It might look like a strange picture to love, but this picture means the return of my favourite Doctor on Doctor Who! I'm so excited to see Matt Smith and David Tennant teamed up!

( ) this super sweet bride! I LOVE everything about her!

( ) Speaking of weddings... I adore Grace Kelly's wedding dress. It's so classic and elegant. Yesterday I watched a documentary on her which made me fall in love with the dress again, however I never really knew what the rest of her life was like. Nor did I realize what a super sad ending it had. :(

( ) These gals and their fabulous dresses!

Other things I'm loving: getting back into blogging day trips to Peterborough with the sisters and boyfriends the sun shining through my curtains pink lemonade The Village Bakery & Deli located in Whitby, Ontario! It's the cutest Dutch bakery and everything is super delicious there! snapchat my scruffy looking pup who needs a haircut because he looks homeless  Breaking Bad birds chirping  painting my nails successful thrifting trips taking the dogs for a walk the zoo

This last picture also makes me want to get some ice cream, so maybe I can convince Greg to come with me after work! Nothing's better than ice cream on a sunny day!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy this great weather we are having!

Back in the Saddle Again!

Guess what everybody... I'm back! New blog name, new look, and oh yeah, it's my birthday, so I'm a new age too! Woohoo! Things couldn't get any better!


blog wanderlust whimsy megan birthday 26

Not only is today my 26th birthday (ick, what a weird age to be) but I can't tell you how excited I am to be blogging again! I really miss being inspired, creative, and most importantly I miss chatting with all my blog friends (and making new friends too)! I know it sounds cheesy, but that's the part I miss the most! So I've decided to get back in the saddle and start being more active on here!

My year in Disney really ate up a lot of my time to the point where if I had any free time it was spent sleeping or cleaning the house. But now that life has settled a bit and I'm back in Canada, I can't wait to get started. I made sure to write down all my ideas for the past year, even if I didn't have the time to write about them. So making these ideas into a reality is going to be lots of fun!

I hope you will all join me in this new chapter of life and don't forget to follow via bloglovin seeing as GFC will be gone in a few months!

Later days lovelies!!!

♥ Megan
