What time is it? It's whoo-thirty

I am so excited about my owl! So excited, in fact, that I've named him Winston. Perfect owl name, right?
Jasper is having some crazy weird weather, so I again found myself in the house for these photos. I must say, I much prefer being out in the wilderness to being trapped in my apartment during an outfit photoshoot. It seems I don't have any good backdrops in this place, which       is funny considering we have a ton of amazing art pieces on the walls.  
Instead of a white wall or something of the sort, I decided to go with the NWT license plate hanging on our patio door. The plate came from the Yellowknife dump. Ian and I were there scavenging last year, when he spotted the plate on an dilapidated old car. It was a bit of an adventure to get it off, but it was worth it. Polar bear plates are a hot commodity in Canada. When we first moved to Jasper, we had a few people joke about stealing ours right off the back of our car. It hasn't happened yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few people had tried and failed. (We have it screwed in good and tight!)

Aside from the wonky weather, there isn't much to complain about here in the mountains. Ian and I went out fishing on Tuesday night and I caught the first fish of the season. It was a tiny bull trout, but it was better than nothing. Plus, it made Ian a little jealous. He predicted I'd catch a fish before him and so, of course, I did, despite the fact that I've only been out twice this season and he's been out half a dozen times. Beginner's luck, I guess.

Here's to warmer weather and plenty more fish!


  1. I've always wanted a polar bear plate! :)

    1. I know, right!! They are the best. We refuse to get rid of the one on our car even though we live in Alberta now.

  2. I simply adore your owl clock necklace so cute! And I really love your shoes too!

    1. Thanks Amanda. The owl was like $6 on Etsy! So worth it. And the shoes were two for $20. Hells ya for deals!!

  3. Dude, I'm like, 90 per cent sure a character on Girls was wearing that owl. Not New Girl or 2 Broke Girls - Girls. YOU'RE SO HIP.

    1. I don't think I have ever been HIP!! I'm feeling pretty awesome right now. Thanks dude!! (Also, thanks for clarifying on the show name. I totally wouldn't have known which one you were talking about.)
