Scenes from the weekend

Holy cow, that was a busy weekend! Not complaining though as it was a fun weekend :)

{friday} Mr.D had an appointment at a hospital in the south, so he had taken the day off to attend it. Amelia and I decided to go with him. After his appointment, we stopped for Chinese lunch buffet (Mr.D's request) and then headed home. I fed Amelia and then treated myself to a manicure and pedicure. It was nice to have an hour to sit, zone out and of course get my nails pretty :) Once I got home, I took Harley for a walk and then we spent the night hanging out at home.

{saturday} we were off bright and early to drop Harley off at the dog sitter's and then made the three hour drive to Mr.D's hometown. Amelia did great on her first road trip! We had to stop only once to feed/change her and barely any crying which was a relief. After dropping our stuff off at my inlaws and having a quick lunch, we headed out to visit Mr.D's grandma as she hadn't met Amelia yet. Later in the afternoon, my BIL/SIL and kids came over and we had a family dinner. It was nice as we don't get to have those very often!

{sunday} in the morning, we got ready and then headed to my BIL & SIL's house as they were hosting our shower with my MIL. Amelia was spoiled yet again by our family and friends! Such a lucky little girl. 

After the shower, we made the drive back home and Amelia spoiled us by sleeping the whole way home! 

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Five Question Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I figured I'd change it up this week and come up with five questions for you to answer :) Feel free to answer all or none!

{one} if you could do anything this weekend instead of what you have to do/should be doing, what would you do?

{two} if you were in the woods and you came upon a bear, what would you do? Run, scream, stand still?

{three} if you won the dream home, would you keep it? Or try and sell it?

{four} be honest, when you are home alone have you ever looked behind the shower curtain before you peed?

{five} when was the last time that you said or did something that made you cringe thinking back on it?

Have a great weekend everyone!

I've been struggling to come with post ideas lately, so I'm borrowing this post format from Lisa.

{reading}: nothing at the moment. I find that I'm tired by the time I crawl into bed, and haven't had any desire to read. I did read The Girl on the Train recently and it was really good!

{loving}: even though some days can be tough, I'm loving being home with Amelia and being a mom.

{thinking}: about the reason why Amelia has been a bit fussy/clingy the past couple of days. The other night, she wanted nothing to do with Mr.D which is tough for everyone. Hopefully it passes quickly!

{frustrated}: I'm not sure if this makes me sound like a terrible mother, but sometimes I get frustrated that Amelia wants/needs me all of the time. Don't get me wrong, I love her and love being a mom, but there are tough days when I feel like I haven't had two seconds to myself.  Has anyone else felt like this?

{feeling}: a bit tired, but pretty sure that comes with parenthood :)

{anticipating}: the shower that my MIL and SIL are throwing for us this weekend, my 6 week check up (fingers crossed I get cleared to work out!) and a coffee date with a friend next week.

{watching}: oh goodness, we watch a lot of TV shows! Our favourites lately are: Suits, Shameless and Scandal.

{wishing}: that winter was over and it was spring. I hate when it gets cold and snowy out as I can't get out with Amelia and Harley during the day.

Tell me: any one of the above!

{amelia}: showered with love

As I mentioned yesterday, Amelia and I were spoiled on Sunday when Alison and Nicole hosted a shower for us. I am so lucky to have met so many wonderful ladies through blogging. As I said on Instagram, the internet can be a weird place, but I am so glad that it brought these ladies into our lives. We appreciated everyone taking the time out of their busy schedules to come celebrate Amelia and snuggle with her :)

Alison did an amazing job on all of the decorations, so I'll let the pictures do the talking :)

Be careful Alison- that 'd' might show up when you least expect it ;)

Look at all of those little Amelia's!

Can't wait to watch these two play together!
It's a hard job being the centre of attention ;)
Miss Avery

Thank you again to all of the ladies who came to the shower- Amelia and I loved seeing everyone and appreciated it! And thank you to Alison and Nicole both for the pictures- I'm a terrible blogger for not taking any!

Scenes from the weekend

Another weekend has come and gone...why do they have to go so quickly?!  Let's see what we were up to this weekend:

{friday} during the day, I made a quick trip to Crossiron Mills (a local mall here) as I couldn't handle wearing my maternity jeans anymore and my pre-pregnancy jeans aren't quite fitting. I ended up buying new cheap pairs to get me through this time. I also picked up a cute outfit for Amelia to wear to her shower on Sunday. Other than that, we just spent the night hanging out at home.

{saturday} in the morning, Mr.D took Amelia and let me have a wonderful sleep in. The weather had turned snowy and cold, so we spent the day hanging out at home. I took Harley for a short walk and that's pretty much it. Oh, and we Facetimed with Lisa so she could 'meet' Amelia- technology is awesome that way! We were pretty much hermits for the rest of the day :)

{sunday} Alison and Nicole kindly co-hosted a shower for Amelia and I, which was so amazing. Alison did an amazing job with the decorations (I think she should do it as a job!) and Amelia was spoiled with gifts and cuddles. I'll do a full recap tomorrow, but just wanted to say thank you to all of the fabulous ladies that came!

A few sneak peeks of the shower:

Thank you Lauren, Lisa and Amber for this- so perfect!
Tell me: how was your weekend?
