TGIF & a winner

Happy Friday everyone! It was nice having Mr.D home on Wednesday, but threw me off for the rest of the week. On Wednesday night I kept thinking it was Sunday for some reason.

Before I get into my post today, I wanted to announce that Abby won my giveaway from Wild Child Designs. Congratulations! Please email me at bestthingislove (at) gmail (dot) com and I will put you in touch with Jessica.

This week, we:
  • Monday: after Amelia's morning nap, we went to get groceries. When we got home, we had lunch and then took Harley for a walk. While Amelia was sleeping, I did a workout (I started the 21 day fix again) and cleaned the bathroom
  • Tuesday: we ran to the mall to pick up the baby gates and grabbed a couple other things. The rest of the afternoon was spent hanging around the house and playing. I've wanted to go for a massage for a while and found a place close by that could get me in that night, so I went for one at 5pm. It was heaven! After my massage, I ran to Chapters to get a couple things and headed home once I knew Amelia was in bed. I didn't walk Harley during the day, so I took him for a short run.
  • Wednesday: it was Remembrance Day which meant Mr.D was home with us. We actually didn't do much all day. I did a workout while Amelia fought her nap (it was a bad afternoon nap for her) and that's about it.
  • Thursday: after her nap, we took Harley for a walk and then had lunch. After lunch, we ran to Dollarama and Wal-Mart for some craft related stuff. While Amelia was down for her afternoon nap, I did a workout and sent out all the emails related to the blog swap. Amelia also decided to figure out how to crawl up a step this night too!

The best money I spent this week was on some Christmas gifts and birthday gifts. Trying to get everything done soon! 

The meals we had were:

 Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. That is great that you've started to buy Christmas gifts! I bought my parents gift this week and have a plan for my nieces and nephews (books) but will wait until black Friday to order them. I have no idea what to get Phil. None. He wants nothing, there aren't any 'experience' type gifts I can think of that we could use in the winter as he doesn't really like any winter outdoor activities so I am at a loss as to what to get him. I might suggest we skip gifts and take a trip instead because I also can't really think of anything I want or need. #firstworldproblems

  2. Nice work being on top of Christmas shopping. I'm slowly starting right now.

    Mmmm I want chicken pot pie. I wonder if I can make it fix approved.

  3. Wednesday totally threw me off too, definitely felt like Sunday! It was nice to break up the long work week though (Jim's, not mine, haha!). Good work on getting Christmas shopping started!

  4. Yay!! I'm so excited! I started Christmas shopping this week, too--such a good feeling!!

  5. Congrats Abby!!! Jordyn will look super cute in those too!! Good job on the Christmas shopping! We have started too!!

  6. I have never had a massage. Can you believe that? Absolutely ridiculous I know. Think I'll put it on my Christmas list this year!

  7. Ugh Christmas shopping- I dread it more so now that I have to SHIP everything and Canada Post is the worst!

  8. Oh man, I was just thinking about Christmas shopping and how much I dread it!! I have started buying most of my stuff online, which helps a lot, since it takes so much time to go to the store, park, shop, wait in line, etc. I have found it's much more time efficient!

  9. Oh - your Amelia is so beautiful!! I love dollar store craft runs!

  10. YAY for Abby! I really need a day out to go xmas shopping. It's a must SOON!! What are you guys doing for xmas?
