Five on Friday

{one} happy Friday everyone! So ready for the weekend and for some time away from work.

{two} the weather has been gorgeous here lately! I took advantage of it and went for a walk at lunch yesterday. It was super sunny, but so windy! I'll take it because it beats snow any day.

{three} for the mama's out there- what are your must have's that you registered for? I'm starting to make our registry and don't want to miss anything important. We are new to all of this so any input is appreciated!

{four}  If you are Canadian blogger and want to join in the Christmas blog swap, don't forget to sign up here.

{five} have a great weekend everyone!

Canadian blogger Christmas swap 2014

It's that time of year ladies and gents! Christmas is quickly approaching, which means the Canadian blogger Christmas swap is right around the corner. Lindsey and I have had great success for the past 3 years doing this, so it's back for another year! Plus, it's a fabulous way to find new Canadian blogs to read.

Last year, we changed the format of the swap to be ornaments which went over really well with everyone. We decided that this year will be ornaments again :)

The details:

  • You must have an active blog and be willing to share your package on your blog once you have received it
  • Must be a Canadian blogger (sorry friends from the States!)
  • Leave a comment telling me (with your email address or ensuring it's linked to your blog) that you are interested in participating
  • Please let us know by November 7, 2014 if you are wanting to participate 
  • You will only have to spend $20 before shipping on the package 

Once we have the final numbers, I will match everyone up and send out the information accordingly. Please let myself or Lindsey know if there are any questions :)

{baby d}: week twenty six

Just a friendly reminder that I am posting my weekly recaps a week behind

Look who made it into this week's picture again...good thing he's cute:) And thank you to Nicole for letting me borrow the shirt :)

Feeling: still no major complaints. I have my tired and sore days, but still feeling pretty good.

Workouts: for being out of town for four days, I still fit in: three walks with Harley, a prenatal yoga class, one run and an at home tabata workout.

  • took a trip with us to Ontario to see my family
  • got completely spoiled rotten at a baby shower
  • no decisions made on the nursery- too busy being out of town
  • crazy strong kicks while I lay on my left side on the couch or in bed. A few were in the ribs, which wasn't fun at all! But Mr.D got to feel a few which is always neat
  • my belly button is slowly but surely getting shallower and shallower. I'm curious to see if it is going to pop
  • it started a couple of weeks ago, but I have the dark line down my belly. It started off very faint, but is slowly getting darker

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Tuesday everyone! I wanted to put up a post yesterday, but we didn't get home from Ontario until 10:30pm on Sunday and had no time/energy to do so. 

{thursday} in the morning, we dropped Harley off at doggie day care (one of the ladies who works there will take dogs in on the weekend, so she looked after him while we were gone) and then headed to the airport. We got into Ontario around 7pm and grabbed a quick bite to eat after my mom picked us up from the airport.

{friday} we had no plans during the day, so decided to make the one hour drive to my mom's cottage as Mr.D had never seen it or been to Grand Bend before. The day wasn't very nice, but the rain held off so we could take a short walk on the beach.
Haha Mr.D in the jalapeno man outside the Mexican restaurant
After our walk and tour of Grand Bend, we headed to Bayfield (it's about 20 minutes from Grand Bend) for lunch at a little pub called the Black Dog Cafe. After lunch, we headed back to my mom's house for a quick nap and then we met up with my family for dinner. It was super casual, but nice to be able to see everyone and catch up.

{saturday} in the morning, we just hung out watching tv and movies. In the afternoon, I was surprised with a baby shower thrown by my mom's good friends and her daughter. Baby D and I were definitely spoiled rotten! I'll recap the shower later this week :) After the shower, we headed back to my mom's house to meet up with my brothers and Mr.D. They had spent the afternoon getting lunch and doing guy things while we were at the shower :)  My mom made a fabulous dinner and we spent the night eating, talking and watching a movie.

My SIL and I who are about 3 weeks apart
Just some of baby D's gift and gift cards

{sunday} in the morning, we met up with my dad and his wife, her son and my younger brother (catch all that?!) for breakfast. In the afternoon, we made a quick trip to Winners to pick up a new suitcase (so many gifts!) and then dropped by to see my older brother and his wife. We headed back to my mom's for a quick dinner before it was off to the airport. 

It was a super quick and busy trip, but it was nice to spend time with my family and for Mr.D to be able to come along as well.

{baby d}: week twenty five

Just a friendly reminder that I am posting my weekly recaps a week behind


Another appearance by Harley and his ball :) Thanks Erica for letting me borrow this dress! 

Feeling: still have groin/round ligament pain which comes and goes. The worst is rolling over in bed or getting off the couch from sitting for a while. Otherwise, felt a bit tired last week, but I think that comes with growing a baby!

Workouts: Three runs (12kms total), lots of walks with Harley and a prental yoga class

  • lots of movement still! I still can't get over how weird it is to see my belly roll and move with her movements
  • I talked about this on Friday, but still trying to decide if I want to get maternity pictures done or just newborn ones or both
  • some days it blows my mind that I am going to be a mom/ we are going to be parents. I know there is a baby growing in my belly, but it's crazy to me some days
