I’m baaaack!

Hellllllooooo!

Wow, guys. Wow. It’s been like, a million years since my last blog post. Life sometimes gets in the way of blogs though, but I really wanted to update and let my lovely followers know what’s been going on the last few months.

Last time I updated, I was a couple months pregnant and Mike and I were engaged. I’m now 7 months pregnant and Mike and I are MARRIED! Gasp! I know, I know.

It all happened so fast. We decided that we didn’t want a huge wedding. Not even a small wedding. We wanted to elope. And boy, did we. This past May, we went to Paris for 16 days and while we were there, got married beneath the Eiffel Tower. We were married on May 28 at 6pm (Paris time) and it was absolutely perfect for us.

wSo now, we’re married and in two months going to have a beautiful little baby! My pregnancy has been going well. I’ve had some painful times. Some restless times. Some crazy times. But also lots of great and wonderful times. Baby is kicking like crazy all the time! I also haven’t gained a whole lot of weight, and still working out and doing my yoga! I seem to have these bursts of energy through the day, which I take advantage of. I’m 7 months pregnant and my belly has finally just popped and STILL people don’t know I’m preggy!

baby4All in all, it’s been a crazy year! And on top of all of that, Mike and I are moving! We’re staying in the same city, just wanting more space and moving soon, which is stressful with a capital stress!

So, that’s that. I’m sure there is way more, but that will be for another post šŸ˜‰

Home for the Holidays?

This just makes me giggle.

December 1st is just days away and with the start of the holiday season upon us, we are all gearing up for the wonder that is Christmas. The shopping, the specialty lattes, the wanting to throw the specialty lattes in the faces of other shoppers in your way, it’s the same every year for me. I wish I could be one of those people who gets all of their shopping done in June and laugh at those of us running around like last minute turkeys. But I can’t change who I am, and I’m a December gift buying lady!

However this year, I’m facing a dilemma I haven’t had to deal with for over 5 years.

Where to spend the holidays?

Last year, my relationship with Mike was only a few months old, so it made it easier to say “Ok, you be with your family and I’ll be with my family and we’ll meet up in the new year.” We also lived in different cities at that time, which made it even easier. But this year is the first year we had to have the talk on where we should spend our time. I know we don’t need to be together on Christmas, and if I was a different person, I really wouldn’t care. But like I said, I am who I am, and I very much want to wake up next to my sweetheart on Christmas morning. Call me a romantic. Call me old fashioned. Call me a nerd. It’s just something I want to do, and this year will be the first time we get to do that.

Because our families live 4 hours apart from each other, this may be a bit of a challenge and quite a bit of driving for us on Christmas day. But, we made the decision quite easily actually, so for that I’m a happy girl. That being said, I have a bit of a guilt as well. You see, we decided to go be with my family Christmas eve and Christmas morning and his family for Christmas dinner. But I know that he and his twin brother have certain traditions they do every Christmas eve, and his family have traditions as well. So I feel like I’m taking him away from that. But my family also has traditions that I don’t want to miss out on. We thought of a way that will hopefully please both of our families and us I think though. So, yay for us and yay for waking up next to my sweetie on Christmas morning. Win-Win.

I guess this year, we’re making new traditions šŸ™‚

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Home Again, Home Again

To those of you lovely people who read my little bloggy blog on a regular basis, you know that I’ve been away in Calgary visiting family for the last little while. Almost two weeks actually! I had a wonderful time being back there and not just because I got totally spoiled by my parents. That’s right, I’m the favorite. (Deny it ALL you want Momsie and Dadsie, we all know it’s true. Wink.) It was sad to say goodbye to not only them, but to my kitty and puppy as well. They are my babies and I’mma miss them tons. I know I’ll be back soon though, Christmas is just around the corner after all! Also, YAY CHRISTMAS!

My trip wasn’t just about seeing family and cuddling pets though. I made it into a bit of a detox trip. I feel like I’ve detoxed my body, mind and spirit. I also treated myself and got my hair did, so now it’s even more red! That had nothing to do with anything, I just wanted to share because it looks so darn lovely.

This mini getaway was much needed for me in alot of ways, but I’m very happy to be going home today. I’ve missed my someone special so much and I can’t wait to see him in a few hours. Plus, I’ve been told he completely cleaned and de-cluttered our place! I’m usually the one to do things like that. I believe the world works much better when it’s organized and tidy. So I’m looking forward to that as well. Because I’m awesome like that.

See you soon Edmonton!

Peace, love & sarcasm,
