Happy Friday and happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian followers! So excited for stuffing. I could do without everything else, but LOVE stuffing. Usually my BIL and fight over the left overs as we both love it so much.

The high of the week was getting together with some of the ladies from our baby group on Wednesday at a local play area. It's fun to see how much each of the babies has grown and changed already! Ooh, and Amelia giving me a couple 1 hr naps was pretty sweet too after a l-o-n-g stretch of 30 minute naps.

The low of the week was nothing really. I mean, there was the time I was changing Amelia and she had a super messy diaper so it went all over the change pad cover. That's always fun ;)

The best money I spent was on some clothes for Amelia from VV (just what she needs right? ;) haha). I found her a sweatshirt, pjs and tights. I also found myself a Lulu winter running hat- all for $16! I should have taken a picture, but I'm too lazy to go upstairs and do it now, haha

The books I read were My Fight/Your Fight by Ronda Rousey. I didn't know much about her (other than seeing her on Ellen), but loved finding more about her life.  I also read After You by Jojo Moyes, which I loved.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Three Things Thursday

Man, my motivation and ideas of what to blog about are very lacking lately! Anyone have any ideas of posts that you'd like to see from me? I'm not very interesting, but I could try :)

I've got three random things for you today:

{one} yesterday afternoon I was out for a walk with Harley and Amelia. We were waiting at a crosswalk (not with lights) and a vehicle stopped for us but the person behind them did not see in time. Crash! Luckily both people in the vehicles were fine and I gave them my name and number just in case they needed a witness. People in our neighbourhood are terrible at stopping for pedestrians in the crosswalks. It's kind of hard to miss me with a stroller and a dog, but yet so many people do not stop.

{two} we met up with some of the ladies from our baby group yesterday, and Amelia was the only baby not crawling. Haha poor girl. I know it will be a whole different ball game once she starts, so I'm savouring this time.

{three} I have a desire to run a race for some reason....anyone running any coming up?

Tell me: something random for your Thursday!

Scenes from the weekend

Phew, what a fun and busy weekend we had! Let's see what we got up to:

{friday} the crappy weather hadn't moved in yet, so I took advantage of the sunshine and went for a run with Harley and Amelia. Since we sold the car on Wednesday and we hadn't gotten the new one yet, I was stuck at home without a vehicle anyways. I also decided to make cookies in the morning, which I've pretty much ate all of them. I was supposed to get my hair done that night, but my hair dresser was sick so my appointment was cancelled. Sad face. Instead, I left after dinner and ran some errands. Not fun at all, but much easier without a baby in tow.

{saturday} the cold weather rolled in the night before and it was freezing in the morning! We dropped Mr.D off at the car dealership to sign the papers and bring the new car home. Once he got home, I ran out alone again to pick up a couple things. In the late afternoon, we headed over to Alison and Justin's house to help celebrate Delainey's 2nd birthday. Alison once again did an amazing job on the party! She thought of every little detail. We headed out shortly after 6pm as Amelia was getting cranky and no one likes a cranky baby. Once she was in bed, we watched some tv and I ended up staying up too late reading. 

{sunday} another crappy day weather wise, so I spent the morning hanging out at home with Amelia while Mr.D went to get groceries. I made her some food (apples and sweet potatoes). In the afternoon, I went for a chilly 7km run with Harley. I had no desire to go, but glad I got out there. 

Amelia was a bit cranky, so we did anything to make her happy which included riding on Mr.D's shoulders and pulling his hair. 

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Happy Friday everyone! I don't want to use the word, but apparently s**w is in the forecast for this weekend. Fingers crossed it doesn't actually happen!

The high of the week was selling our car one night after listing it and getting what we wanted for it! We definitely expect that and don't pick up the new car until Saturday. Another high was going to the zoo with Brie and Sully on Wednesday. It was a gorgeous day for it!

The low of the week was nothing coming to mind right now.

The best money I spent was getting my hair done tonight. Technically, I haven't spent it yet, but I know it will be worth it.

The book I read was  Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Birthday wish list

Holy moly, it's October 1st! Where the heck has this year gone? Now that it's October, it means it's closer to my birthday and Mr.D keeps bugging me for a birthday list. I'm really struggling with what to ask him for (we buy birthday presents but not Christmas presents for each other). I don't need much being off work and don't have any major wants this year. But, if these things found their way to me I wouldn't be upset :)

Thanks Becky for the idea and help creating this!

(1) a gift card for the salon where I get my hair done...who doesn't love a little pampering and me time?!

(2) a gift card to Market Mall so I can buy some new clothes

(3) a gift card to the Running Room...I can always find something to buy there!

(4) A Nike half zip - perfect for running or walking Harley

(5) A Lululemon swiftly tech long sleeve in heathered alarming

(6) a blanket scarf in plaid - or any fun fall scarves! I also love the scarves from Urban Cowgirl

I would also be more than happy for a sleep in and breakfast made for me! I'm easy to please :)

Tell me: what's on your birthday or Christmas list this year?
