Insta Friday #1

Today I'm starting a new weekly tradition. A little week in review using the photos I took on Instagram.

What? You're not following me on Instagram? Follow me at StephRichy if you'd like to come along for the ride.

Let's begin now... (remember hearing this as I child on those read along records? "You will know it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this. Brrrriiing! Let's begin now.") 


I concocted my favourite recipe to date last weekend. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were involved. Amazing.

We are dealing with NASTY cold January weather here on the Canadian plains. When I took this photo of my frosted up kitchen window, it was -43ºC. That's -45ºF. So very wrong. Ugh!

I did a tiny bit of Valentine decorating in our living room. More to come this week.

Decided to give myself a manicure & was having a hard time choosing a colour.

Parisian Blue by Joe Fresh won out.

I spent a good amount of time choosing some music for one of my voice students & practicing the piano for some vocal coaching I'm doing with some local high school students.

I was super pumped yesterday morning to go thrifting with a sweet friend. Can you tell I'm excited?

Let me tell you, if there are any girls in the Saskatoon area that are looking for a grad dress, the Sally Ann is the place to go! (*wink, wink*)
It was like 27 Dresses in there!

Alas, I came away from our thrifting not with an ugly grad dress, but with a gorgeous little girl's vintage red wool coat (it should fit my daughter next winter), a vintage silver wreath...

...a frame that has some spray paint in it's future, & a vintage (or vintage looking - not sure which) yellow pillow case. I have plans for it already.

After our thifting, we stopped in at Urban Barn & drooled over some beautiful home decor items. I was in love with this full length mirror... 

...along with a bunch of other stuff! (Still loving the owl trend!!)

I hope you've had a great week too!
