Sunday Snapshots

Today was a nice and relaxed day, counteracting yesterday's hair drama.  Thanks everyone for your sweet and supportive comments and local bloggers- I may be taking you up on that offer to borrow your favourite stylists!

I spent Sunday organizing my closet, attending the boy's baby niece's Baptism, watching the Matrix for the first time ever (how have I gone 23 years without it in my life?), bidding adieu to the boy as he jets off on yet another work trip and then enjoying my alone time by watching trashy reality tv shows and eating candy, chips and pink lemonade for dinner (mmmm...I'll just make sure to work extra hard in Zumba class tomorrow!)

Marley was trying to help with the closet organizing- thank goodness for lint brushes!

The Baptism was held in a beautiful Lebanese Catholic Church

The boy's older brother and Sofia, the adorable Baptised baby

The boy looking spiffy in purple stripes

Baby Sofia and her stunning Mom (can you believe those curls are natural!)

I grew up attending a Baptist church so I always find the interiors of Catholic churches so ornate and awe-inspiring!

The boy has 3 siblings and they each have 3 kids meaning we have 9 adorable (and rascally) nephews & nieces.  They're all half Lebanese/half Caucasian so they have the beautiful curly hair and olive skin.  Now everyone's just waiting on us...

I thought I would take advantage of the beautiful church landscaping for a mini photoshoot!

Dress- Simons (Montreal, QC); Jewellery- Le Chateau; Clutch- Thrifted; Shoes- Nine West

  7. Sounds like a great time! You look amazing <3 I love the dress!!!
    Awww- I’m jealous! I love the curls! I've always wanted them <3 I get a few when my hair is up in a pony tail & some is falling out of the hair elastic- those pieces turn into little curls, lol :) But that's it... I do like my wavy hair though <3

    Sofia is adorable, by the way!!
