Family Day at the BC Home & Garden Show {& a FLASH Giveaway!}

IMG 5766Today Gracen and I were lucky enough to be invited to check out Family Day at the BC Home & Garden Show at BC Place.  Admittedly, we didn’t spend a whole lot of time browsing what most people come to the show to see (the home and garden exhibits obviously), but we definitely would have spent a whole lot more time down there if a) we owned a home and b) if we didn’t have plans to move overseas come August.  From spa pools to lane way homes to landscaping and cleaning products, every topic pertaining to home owning/renovation/care was covered.  

IMG 5762Where we spent most of our time was in the Kid Zone, set up especially for Family Day.  Gracen had a wonderful time roaming around visiting all of the booths and was thrilled to see her favourite ever photographer, Bethany, from Images by Bethany at the booth.  Bethany took some photos of her in front of a rainy day backdrop which are bound to be gorgeous, so I’ll be sure to share them when we get them back.  Along the way, we picked up some Monkey Toast, learned about Kibooco, and did a little project at Beesafe.  

IMG 5765One of the highlights was definitely having Miss G’s face painted by Kristal of Faceaballoonza.  Grae selected a turtle and Kristal decorated her face with this gorgeously elaborate turtle painting in two minutes flat.

  1. Ha, we bought a pop-up fire truck, and in fact I’ve spent most of the morning inside it… ‘driving’ whilst Elliot pretends to be a Dalmatian.

  2. I’ve been looking to update my bedroom. Old thrift store dressers from college that are falling apart amongst other things.

  3. Master bathroom!! It is soo “from the eighties”, with pinkish walls, tiles that have painted birds and clouds, and vinyl on the floor. The vanity is an odd shape so no matter how I will paint it, it will scream “I’m old!! Retire me!!”
