Canada Day Long Weekend: Photo Diary



What I wore to a birthday party last Saturday 
top - Bamboo Ballroom, shorts - Zara, hat - Joe, sandals + jewelry + purse - H & M, silver ring - Free People

Flowers at the cabin

My nephew on Canada Day

Pigeon Lake - I spent almost every weekend here during the summer as a kid.

Toasty warm campfire. Marshmallows were involved of course.

Cute cake my friend made for her son's birthday. Isn't it adorable? It was delicious!

Me with my best friends Jenessa, Kristin and baby Taysen. Jenessa surprised Kristin and flew in from Vancouver to celebrate T.'s first birthday! It was the funnest kid's bday party I've ever attended. It started out with lots of little kidlets, bright balloons, monkey toys and chocolate cupcakes and ended with the adults playing beer pong, loud music, dance-off's and someone waaaay over the age of three falling into an ice bucket. It was AWESOME!

Mmmmmm Sunday brunch! French Toast with Crown Royal syrup topping, my favorite.

I hope you all had a nice and rejuvenating weekend!

I love food photography... so delicious! That striped top of yours is AMAZING - the back detailing, is that a tie up? I miss weekends at the lake! Driving out to Ma-Me-O!

ahhh I love that top! it reminds me of candy cane or those swarly stwarberry candies, it's adorable! hope you had a great weekend

and yeah no pot isn't legal in Ottawa lol just got your message, but at least it's okay to smoke and if you get caught you won't get the death penalty... i don't know what i'd do if I live in countries like that! :S

You look amazing! I love your outfit. You always have such great style.
What type of camera do you use? Your photos are always so clear.

Ashley said...

Okay, my inner foodie is coming out and I have to know: is the french toast from a restaurant or did an actual real person make it? I think I need this recipe if at all attainable. Or maybe just some good brunch-making skills.

Your weekend looks awesuuuum. I'm envious, I have to admit. And everyone in your family/ring of friends is so adorable! Including you, of course.

Catita said...

great rad and white stripes, perfect for the occasion! And Crown Royal syrup! I had no clue that existed, I must look for it next time I am home ;)

Marie a la Mode said...

Sandy Joe: Yes, there's a tie in the back : )

Kastles: I believe that's the brand!

Funny Face Beauty: I use a Nikon D3000 but I edit using fofoflexer.

Ashley: I WISH I could say that I made the french toast but I didn't. I had it at Moxie's restaurant!
