Lily's 9th Birthday: 3ten.ca

It’s Lily’s 9th Birthday! Well, it was on January 18, 2018. She’s a Great Dane who is full of spunk and excited to turn 9. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen these, yet they’re too good not to share here, too. Let’s check out the past year for Lily!

I remember back in June, when we were in Glacier National Park in Montana with Lily, a lady came up to us and just started hugging Lily. Her Great Dane was at home and too unwell to travel. I asked how old she was – 9 said the lady. Later on when Bryce and I were by the fire I got excited – do you think Lily could live to be 9??!!? Neither of us thought it would be possible, yet here she is, a 9 year old happy Great Dane. Who, I should mention, travelled to BC this past weekend.

She is flat out one of the greatest dogs (Bella was awesome, too). The neatest part about Lily is how much she loves being the centre of attention. We didn’t ever really know this until she became our only dog, yet she likes the spotlight. Here are 9 photos of Lily over the past year – it was a great one.

The Past Year

The photos above was taken on Thursday morning, the day this pup turned nine and in true Great Dane fashion, she’s stretching and being bashful.

Below, Lily and all her stuffies. She is ridiculously spoiled.

Rice on her nose – what? I have rice on my nose? She didn’t eat one day in July so we gave her some rice – hoping it would entice her to eat. Well, it did and after looking at us the next meal, like ‘ah, where’s my rice?’ we’ve been giving it to her ever since.

A fall walk around the property. She loves living in the country.

On the deck, protecting the property. This is how she spends her days when we are home and it’s even slightly warm out. She loves nature.

Lily in the City of Yellowknife Visitor Centre smelling a polar bear. This pup braved the cold and had an adventure of a lifetime.

That’s us almost a year ago in Yellowknife. Staying warm in the Arctic winter.

Overall, the past year with Lily has been so much fun. We hit up Dairy Queen yesterday to celebrate this one of a kind pup! Thanks to all of you who love her and love all dogs – dogs are the best, aren’t they?!

Lily loves ice cream! And will casually stare down the drive thru attendant while waiting.

Feeding her a cone is so much fun – pure awesomeness. Happy Birthday sweet pup – congrats on being 9!

Guest Room: 3ten.ca

Our other guest room – it’s all done, bright and ready for guests. Last week I shared our DIY headboard project with you and promised some updated photos of our guest room. Well, here they are! You can tell from the photos of the headboard project that the room was a dark grey. With the new mirror barn door (another post to come soon) and the white walls, the room is much brighter, more welcoming, and overall, mega awesome. Let’s check it out!

First the whole room. Notice the headboard?

Look at that large mirror! We took our old barn door and turned it into a huge mirror barn door. Makes the room look and feel huge.

A guest room is never complete until it’s filled with photos of those you love. We have so many windows in our house that the guest rooms are some of the best spots for photos. The bonus part, those we love are shared with others who love to visit – it’s like a little win-win.

One of my favourite decor pieces. That auction was awesome.

I can’t get over how great that mirror is – so cool. Post to come soon on how we made it.

Festival of Trees: 3ten.ca

The Festival of Trees in Edmonton is a huge University Hospital event. They raise more than one million dollars each year and the trees are beautiful. This year they raised enough money to drastically help the Rapid Transfer Unit at the University of Alberta Hospital. Basically, the Festival of Trees is a total bonus for making a small donation to a worthy cause.

Okay – let’s check out some of the trees!

This one below is my favourite. Such a plaid little farmhouse tree with owls. It fits my style and it’s adorable.

Skating? Yes! Oh, you mean only cute little deer can skate…bummer.

These little elves are painting away. Too cute.

Okay, these next two trees are pretty creative. One is upside-down and the other is the bottom of a dress. I for sure thought the dress one was sponsored by a bridal shop, but nope. Wouldn’t that be an awesome holiday display though if you owned a little dress boutique? So fun.

Well, that’s it – just a few photos of our trip to the Festival of Trees. Know this, it’s busy anytime you go and parking downtown can be a bit tricky, yet it’s worth it. Check it out next year if you get the chance. Time to get festive! Thanks for visiting.
