Weekend Fun


This past weekend I took a drive by myself out to my brother's place for a visit. He lives on a beautiful ranch not too far outside the city where I live. I know this post isn't fashion/beauty/entertainment - related but I thought I'd share something different with my readers : ). Here are some pics from last Sunday...

There are six horses altogether(including a miniature one that my nephew rides) but a few of them were M.I.A.

Please excuse my un-washed hair and bare face. Sundays are my lazy days ; )

Canola Field

Peanut is on the left, Rudder is lying down.

I was surrounded by hundreds of insects while taking these pics and of course did NOT mange to escape unscathed. I counted 7 mosquito bites.

We get amazing sunsets in the summer!


Ok I had to post this pic. What's in this bag you ask? My sister-in-law's wedding dress! Has anyone heard of Store Smart Bags? Maybe I've been living under a rock but I hadn't up until a few days ago. The bag acts like a vacuum and sucks your clothes in so you have more room for storage. What does that mean? There's room for even MORE clothes! Brilliant? I think so.

This is what happens when you turn your back on a two-year-old for 2 seconds.

I love the prairies! I just drove from Regina to Edmonton yesterday and the whole time all I could think was "how frickin beautiful."

So beautiful, that looks like the midwest? Really, really pretty, looks so peaceful and relaxing! XO!

Marie Z. said...

Shari: It's actually the Prairies in Alberta, Canada which I believe is similar to the midwest in the states although I've never been there!

Hahaha the digger in the ketchup! Hey you look so good, you don't look (at all!) like you're NOT wearing any make-up, you're a natural beauty! Good point about the beaches in France, I also remember them being non-sandy... I think we'll probably spend most of our time by the pool, it's just easier and 'cleaner', but thanks!

Love these pics, Marie!!
You should do a fashion photo shoot of yourself in that canola field sometime, it would be beautiful!
Kitty is super cute too.

Martha said...
