Monday Must Knows - Kari Skelton

I've been a bad bad bad blogger. I'm honestly shocked my sister hasn't fired me yet. (Thanks Lindz!) 

I'm not sure what you want me to write about. This winter that never ended really took a toll on me. I'm so glad the warm weather is upon us. But to be honest, I have a hard time generating content when I feel like everything has already been done before. I don't want to rip people off. Especially when most of my day is spent just cleaning, playing ponies, and wiping tiny butts. So until I get my rump in gear, here's the gorgeous Kari Skelton telling us about herself! Thanks Kari!

kari Skelton , Edmonton blogger, kids decor Edmonton,

Hi, I'm Kari! I'm a mom to Wyatt who is 2.5 years old and to our dog Moses who is almost six. I'm in love with a guy named Ryan (my husband). I'm a blogger at KariSkelton.com and I'm also a personal shopper and stylist. I worked in radio and television for 13 years before going on maternity leave. I had always wanted to start my own blog to share ideas on style, parenting, and adventure. So, when we decided I was going to stay home and raise the babies, it seemed like a perfect time to start my business! I love to have fresh flowers in our home all the time and I eat cake at least once a week. 

 

 

1) Personal Record of days of dry shampoo? Seven. Dry shampoo and hats are some of your best friends when you're a new mom. 

2) Personal Record of shows watched in one sitting? (how many hours? What show?) Suits a few years ago. 10 episodes in a row. When I was a kid I watched Teen Witch 25 times in one year and when I was in my early 20's I used to leave parties early to go to Blockbuster and rent Sex and the City. I watched the whole series in two weeks (I can't believe I'm admitting this.) *editors note: OWN THIS SHIT GIRL I AM WITH YOU*

3) Longest time between grocery trips? (for home, not business!) I go to the grocery store all the time. I'm one of the weird ones who enjoys grocery shopping. 

4) Favourite story your spouse/partner tells about you at parties? The moment we met in a media scrum (we both used to be news reporters). We were interviewing the Minister of Municipal Affairs (at the time). He describes what I was wearing and then we bicker about who owned the scrum and asked the best questions. *editors note: WHO WON?!*

5) What food do you effing hate? Like if someone fed it to you, you would spit it out on your kid? (obviously we are joking, please do not spit on your children.) Raisins. I think it's the only thing I don't like to eat. Used to eat them all the time when I was young but now I can't stand them.

Thank you so much Kari! You're a gem!

Until next time...

Monday Must Haves - February Faves and One Giant Dislike

Hey Guys!  Let's talk Feb Faves! It was the last month before I went on my spender bender, so I'm sure I can talk about some stuff that I got.

1) Overalls! Lindsay got a super adorable pair from Sweet {Jolie} and sadly due to my giant powerlifter thighs, I had to get mine from The Gap. Is anyone else on this kick? Do you feel like a kid when wearing them? Does anyone still one strap them? I have so many questions about overalls. Let's talk about overalls! 

2) Winners beauty department. Seriously, WHY SO GOOD WINNERS!? I could spend so many dollars there...and even debated getting a job there for the discount, until it turns out that their discount is only 10%...so not even worth it. If you want another skin care round up let me know! 

3) Forever 21 sale department. Seriously, BOGO on total trendoid stuff that is cheap to begin with? Sign me up. I mean, don't go with a kid (which I did...) and go and dig. Then dig some more, then dig and dig, then dig. But if you have time, patience, and in some cases a sewing needle, you can get some seriously good deals. Online isn't as great as in store, so I would go check it out! 

and now for my dislike...

Winter. WHY ARE YOU STILL OCCURRING?

I got so many cute sneaks that need to be worn, so this snow needs to GO AWAY.

That's all for this month guys! Stay tuned to check out how my spender bender is going!
