WIWW - Niagara Falls and Creative Journey

My regularly scheduled post for Sunday/Monday didn't happen because we were away in Niagara Falls for a few days and the room we were staying at had bad wi-fi reception. We had a mini family vacation. So this week I will be combining my What I Wore Wednesday post with my Creative Journey post (week 29) and posting it on Tuesday. Yes I know that makes perfect sense but I am so tired and don't have the energy to do 2 separate posts.

 As with previous weeks I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy , Mama Go Round and the Transatlantic Blonde.

Thursday - work

cardi - Target
tank top - Fashion Bug
skirt - Penningtons
Don't you love the classy place I hide my cell phone when I don't have any pockets in my outfits.  Keeps it close by and safe (when I remember I put it there).

And the girls got new outfits from my mom from Bonnie Togs.

Friday - work

cowl - made by me
t-shirt - from a friend
pants - very old don't remember where I got them from

Saturday - soccer and out with a friend

These pictures were taken by Monkey
t-shirt - Penningtons
cowl and flower  - made by me
jeans - MXM

Sunday - Niagara Falls (Maid of the Mist and Journey behind the Falls)

Taken down by the Niagara River's edge just before and just after a trip on the Maid of the Mist.
The lovely blue garbage bag quality poncho courtesy of the Maid of the Mist.
flower in the hair - gift from my mom
dress - Target
flower and belt - made by me
short - Penningtons
running shoes - Running Room
bracelet - Forever 21
ring - garage sale

Pictures taken off the boat and by the river's edge.  A view most people don't get to see.

And these were taken down beside the Horseshoe Falls. It was a great experience for all of us. M first visit to the Falls was when I was 4 days old but I never experienced all this until this weekend. What an awesome thing to see the Falls from down on the river.

Monday - Marineland, dinner at Outback and Clifton Hill
This is me after melting at Marineland

And I like the way my hair turned out in the high ponytail.

Creative Journey - Week 29

I can't believe it's believe I've been doing this for over 26 weeks, it all started here. The year is halfway over, when did that happen. I have been doing at least one creative act everyday. There has been days when I haven't taken a picture of what I have done every day but I have been creative. 

This week was pretty good in terms of productivity, I've gotten back into the grove with sketching plus working on my crocheting. I'm keeping the momentum going.

If you want to see what I am up to on a daily basis you can check me out on facebook or twitter.
