Randomness for your Tuesday

I've got a bunch of random thoughts for you today...
  • I have two $20 USD codes for Shutterfly that expire on January 31, 2014. We aren't doing Christmas cards and doubt I'll be able to make birth announcements before then. Does anyone have a use for them? I could send you the code or mail them to you.
  • we are going to a wedding on NYE and I have nothing to wear. I'm looking for a form fitting dress (preferably lace)...any ideas of where to find one? Not looking to spend $200 either
  •  does anyone watch Homeland? It's quite the season!
  • who wants to pick out an outfit for me to wear for our maternity pictures? I have no idea what to wear.
  • baby girl was hanging out on my right ribs yesterday and it was the first day where I was truly uncomfortable being pregnant. Tough life I know :)
 Tell me: something random for your Tuesday!

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! Just over four weeks until Christmas holidays, which is crazy. Not quite feeling ready for Christmas, but ready for the time off work.

{friday} Mr.D headed to Edmonton for the night for a friend's birthday party, so it was just Harley and I. We went for a walk and then I headed out to Winners and Target to pick up some stuff for Christmas and for our work donations (we 'adopt' seniors that may not otherwise receive anything for Christmas).

{saturday} in the morning, Harley and I went for a walk and then hung out around the house. Harley practiced his really weird way of coming down the stairs:

Haha, such a character. Mr.D came home just after lunch and his parents came too (they planned on coming before Mr.D decided to go up there too).  My FIL and Mr.D worked on some projects while my MIL and I ran to Michaels and HomeSense. Later on that night, we went out for dinner to NOTaBLE and left with very happy bellies. Such good food there!

{sunday} Mr.D's parents left in the morning, so we caught up on some TV shows and then I might have had a nap on the couch ;) In the afternoon, I ran some more errands for my work Christmas donations. We ended the weekend by getting Chinese food...so good!

Tell me: how was your weekend?

{baby d}: week thirty

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

Is anyone surprised that Harley made it into another weekly picture? Haha, what a dog. 

Feeling: last week was not a great week at all. My stomach was still not feeling great and no idea what caused it. Maybe baby girl sitting weird on my insides? I ended up taking a sick day on the Thursday and just hung out at home napping and watching tv.  Not being able to take anything (ie: pepto) while pregnant sucks!

Workouts: not a great week because of my stomach, but still got some walks in with Harley. 

  • had my 30 week check up at the maternity clinic. I mentioned my stomach issues to the doctor and she said it's nothing to worry about as long as I wasn't having cramps/contractions or blood in my stool. She said to come back in if I didn't start feeling better just in case. Heartbeat was in the 140's and belly was measuring as it should. Still crazy that I am now going every two weeks. 
  • Mr.D put the crib together, which is crazy to see when I walk into the nursery
  • baby girl received the most adorable package from Kristin. She is spoiled already! 

Questions for the mama's:
  • what type of breast pump do you have? Would you recommend it? 
  • what type of bottles have you tried and used? 
  • did you read any parenting books while pregnant? If I don't, am I going to be a terrible parent? Haha 
  • for those of you in Canada, can you complete anything for EI before you go off on mat leave? Or better to wait until I have started my mat leave/baby is born?

Scenes from the weekend

I really need to get better at taking pictures, but I took zero again this weekend. Or maybe it's a good thing that I'm not a professional blogger. 

{friday} after dinner, I ran to the mall to pick up a few things. I was looking for a few things for the nursery at Toy r us, but didn't have much luck. I did find a cute crib skirt at Target though, so I consider that a win. 

{saturday} my nesting urge was kicking in again, so I cleaned and organized a bunch in the morning. Finally set up the coat rack in our storage room and threw a bunch of paper out. Later on, Mr.D and I ran some errands and then took Harley for a walk. The afternoon was spent having a delightful nap on the couch :) For dinner, we headed out to try Brooklyn Pizza (it used to be The Rock)...definitely not as good as before. 

{sunday} an exciting morning in my world....getting groceries and taking Harley for a long walk. At least the weather had turned nicer and that it wasn't not freezing cold. The afternoon was spent hanging up itty bitty baby clothes, organizing the nursery, ironing the curtains and crib skirt. It's slowly coming together :)  I don't know how it happened, but another nap was taken on the couch and I may have woken up to a puddle of drool beneath me. Lucky Mr. D ;)

It feels like our weekends are almost all booked up from now until Christmas, so it was nice to have a weekend where we didn't have anything we HAD to do.

Tell me: how was your weekend?

{baby d}: week twenty nine

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

Feeling: I had an upset stomach for a couple of days this week. I think it was mainly due to starting to take iron pills, which are notoriously hard on your stomach. I had to stop taking them as I couldn't handle it anymore. Otherwise, felt pretty good this week.

Workouts: lots of walks with Harley,  CrossFit style workout at home, T25 with lots of modifications and a strength training workout. Not a bad week even with a rest day in there when my stomach was really upset.

  • finally painted the nursery on the weekend! So glad to have it done. Just need to set up the crib and hang the pictures/art for the gallery wall
  • bought a new winter jacket two sizes up that should hopefully fit me for the rest of the pregnancy. I ended up finding it at Marks Work Wearhouse and got a sweet deal on it....40% off the regular price plus another 20% off on top of that!
  • only 69 more days to go!
