A Day at the Camp

Hello friends!

About a month ago, the fam and I decided to go to the camp at Keith’s fathers place just to pay a visit and check out the water. It’s such a beautiful spot out near New Ross, Nova Scotia… kind of in the middle of nowhere… but that’s the best part about it! Knew it was going to rain a bit throughout the day so I decided to wear comfortable pants (not JEANS that stick to my legs when rained on… yuck!), and a crop tee ūüôā

Although it was cloudy, and rained a bit later on, it was a lovely day to spend with family.

Thanks for reading!

John’s Lunch

On Sunday, my parents came up for their house hunting trip, and ¬†for supper we went to a small eatery (that is apparently very popular but I’ve never ever heard of it), called “John’s Lunch” in Dartmouth. Their specialty is everything seafood, from deep fried clams, haddock, shrimp, scallops etc. Being spontaneous, me and my mom thought it fit to get the seafood platter, and everything was SO good. I can honestly say I never thought that I would ever eat clams, but ¬†I did and surprisingly enough they were my favorite thing on the platter. If you live in Nova Scotia I strongly suggest you hit this place up… I hear they also have a great club sandwich!

Easter Easter!

HAPPY EASTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Every holiday, each¬†family has their own traditions, on Easter Sunday when I was growing up we would always go to church, do an Easter egg hunt and eat turkey dinner. I haven’t been home for Easter in years because of school, and let me tell ya, it still feels weird not being home. The last time I was at my mom’s for Easter, we went on an ‘Easter walk’ and walked along some trails in Edmonton. Since then I’ve been in school and¬†I’ve¬†missed my mom’s glorious Easter turkey dinner… which makes me and my stomach very sad. This year (today) I am at my dad’s in Nova Scotia celebrating Easter, and since cooking a turkey is too much for two people, we decided to order a chicken dinner from Swiss Chalet (which was actually very delightful), we bought strawberry rhubarb pie from a local seller ¬†who I call ‘The Pie Lady’ (Now if you know me, you know that I love all pie… even if it’s bad it’s still probably good) and we’ve been watching tv… back and forth from movies to hockey. It feels kind of like a normal day to me though… not the same without the house smelling like turkey! Anyways I hope you all had a great Easter spending time with your family and friends.

Here are some of the pictures taken from today, it’s not a lot but it’s all I got… Enjoy!

This is my... 'staying at home' unfortunate yet Easter color coordinated outfit

This is my… ‘staying at home’ unfortunate yet Easter color coordinated outfit. Also since I wasn’t planning on going anywhere, I kept a fresh face. ¬†(Pale blue off the shoulder shirt was my best friend Robyn’s, she got it from Aritzia a couple of years ago, coral-colored sweat shorts are from Ardene which was purchased last year).

 

I even have blue socks on.. in public this would probably be a fashion disaster but I'm at home so it's allowed

Nails are in the Easter spirit

In case anyone is interested in the name of the nail polish
