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 Knows - Kelly from Fiddle Leaf Photography

It's Monday! After Daylight Savings, which truly feels like the Monday to end all Mondays. Y U GOTTA BE LIKE THAT MONDAY?

Anyways, today we are talking to Kelly from Fiddle Leaf Photography. I first met Kelly when she hosted a breastfeeding photo shoot here in Sherwood Park. She's amazing and has such an eye for photography. 

I personally love watching behind the scenes stuff. I love this pic!

Here's the answers to our ridiculous questions!

1) Personal Record of days of dry shampoo?

So the beauty of curls is that it hides A LOT (except for maybe the grey hairs that are coming in straight!). I have never used dry shampoo and have gone at least a week without shampooing. 

 

2) Personal Record of shows watched in one sitting? (how many hours? What show?)  

Well, if we go back to the days BEFORE children this is probably 5ish hours. The shows I can remember going through the fastest are Sex In the City and Six Feet Under. Now I rarely go more than 2 hours at a time or I’ll be guaranteed to fall asleep. 

 

3) Longest time between grocery trips? (for home, not business!)

A week probably? I feel like I’m constantly at the store picking up something. I tend to do Costco once a week, but they never have everything I need. 

 

4) Favourite story your spouse/partner tells about you at parties?

I honestly can’t think of one. A) we hardly party! B)My husband always ends up talking about his work and not about weird things I do. haha.

 

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.)

Green peppers! Followed closely by stewed tomatoes.

Kelly is offering a short session of her beautiful EMERGE short sessions May 12th. I've linked the info here. These are so beautiful and so not your typical 'boudoir style' sessions. They make me so happy since they truly celebrate the beauty and strength of all women. Book in guys! 

Thanks for being awesome Kelly!
