Scenes from the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! We had a busy and fun weekend that makes me wish it was one day longer. Oh well, I have my day off this Friday so looking forward to that.

{friday} I wasn't feeling super great (felt oddly dizzy and strange), so I went home around lunch. When I got home, I laid in bed watching Gilmore Girls and having a nap. The nap seemed to help as I woke up feeling better. I was going to run some errands for Amelia's birthday party during my lunch hour, so Brian thankfully did it for me when he was done work. Once Amelia was in bed, I finished decorating/cleaning the house and icing sugar cookies and making cupcakes.

{saturday} we were having Amelia's birthday party at our house from 11-1pm, so the morning was spent cleaning up and preparing for it. I think she had fun with all of her little friends here. Minus when she got upset over everyone singing happy birthday to her ;) I'll share more on her party this week.

After everyone left, Amelia went down for a much needed nap and then we cleaned up the house. I decided last minute to join the blog squad at a fitness class at Revive Lifestyle Fitness, which kicked my butt! More on this later this week.

After class, I stopped to pick up pizza for dinner (hey, I did just do a workout after all!), and then we spent the night hanging out. I ended up falling asleep on the couch at 8:15pm, and then put myself to bed shortly after 9:30pm. I'm so wild and crazy ;)

{sunday} we had a pretty lazy morning at home considering Amelia slept in until 8:30am! Once she was up, we watched a movie, had breakfast and she had a bath as she had leaked through her diaper in the night and was kind of stinky. We left just before noon to head to a play place for a friend's sons birthday party (he was in our baby class). It was a fun time and we left around 1:45pm as someone was in desperate need of a nap. 

While Amelia napped, I laid in bed watching Gilmore Girls and may have had a nap myself. I did a workout from Fitness Blender once I motivated myself to get up and then we spent the evening hanging out. 

Tell me: how was your weekend?

{baby d 2.0}: nineteen weeks

19 weeks
Feeling: pretty good! Besides the normal tiredness that comes with being pregnant/working full-time/having a toddler. I'd love for my face to stop breaking out and my boobs to stop itching- if that's not asking to much ;)

Also feeling so much movement! The baby was kicking super hard the other night and Brian even got to feel the kicks. Nothing beats that! 

Workouts: a mix of two runs, walks with Harley, and at home workouts from Fitness Blender. Really trying to get back into a good routine. 

Other: so excited to see the baby today and find out the gender! What are your guesses? I have zero feelings either way.  

Find my nineteen week update with Amelia here.

{amelia} : two years old

Dear Amelia,

Today you turn the big 0-2! Crazy that another year has passed us by and you have grown in so many ways. Last year on your birthday, you weren't walking and barely had any teeth. Now you don't stop running, have almost all your teeth (minus the last molars to come in) and don't ever stop talking! This year brought many changes including you starting at the day home, and with time, you have come to love it. No more tears in the morning and you get excited to go. Nothing beats picking you up after work and the door opening you saying momma!

You are my goofball who loves stickers, colouring, reading books, playing with your babies, having tea parties and doing puzzles. You have also started to play hide-n-seek, which entails you hiding in the most obvious places and us pretending we don't see you. It always ends in a fit of laughter from you!

Your babies go with you almost every day to the day home, and on the way home you always tell me that baby is sleeping {and make sleeping noises to go along with it} or that she pooped that day.  You always tell me that baby is cold, so we have to wrap her up and then she goes night night. 

You absolutely love bubbles, which means every bath has to have bubbles in it. Speaking of water- you also love to wash your hands too. You push up the sleeves on your shirt and tell me to "come momma" and grab my hand so we can go in the bathroom. 

You do not like when I take your picture lately and will say "no cheese" to me unless we take a selfie together and make funny faces. Silly girl :)

You are starting to talk way more and say things that we can actually understand. You always tell us that you are stuck (ie: in the car seat) and love to call us mommadadda. Always one word even if it's only one person in the room. You love ask to go up to the sky (meaning throw her in the air- I blame Sam for that one!) and still say thank you quite often.  

You love to be wrapped up in blankets especially after a nap or in the morning. If I ask you if you want to get dressed, you say yes and that you want to wear something "cute", haha. I might tell her that her hat, jacket and boots are cute in the morning to help get us out the door. 

You still absolutely love your bottles (or sippy cups) of milk. That calms you right down if you are melting down before bed time. You still also absolutely love pasta and would live on it if we let you. That and cookies. Always asking for cookies and mom has a rubber arm. You also love: bananas, corn, cheese, yogurt, cous cous, rice.

You are wearing size 2T in most things and size 5 shoes. Still in size 4 diapers during the day and night. 

We absolutely love you Amelia!

Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone! How was your week? Mine wasn't too bad- work was a bit slow, which makes the days go by slowly.

{one} Brian ordered something from Best Buy over Christmas and accidentally forgot to change our address. We have the mail forwarding, but it doesn't apply to parcels apparently. We had our realtor contact the new ones realtor as Canada Post shows it as being delivered to the bank of mail boxes. They told our realtor that they didn't receive anything. We even went to the post office to see if it happened to be there, but no suck luck. What the heck do we do now? Think we are shit out of luck?

{two} meals from this week:

Sunday: chilli and cornbread
Monday:  avocado, bacon and turkey paninis and a salad
Tuesday: portobello penne pasta casserole {this was so good, but so rich! Definitely a once in a while dish}
Wednesday: greek turkey meatballs in a pita
Thursday: quiche 

{three} I asked this on Twitter, but what are your thoughts on the use of lots of gifs in blog posts? 

{four} I've started running again and oh man, I'm slow and out of shape! ;) Well, I guess pregnant too, haha. It's feeling good to be running again even if it's once a week. 

{five} have a great weekend everyone!

Scenes from the weekend

{friday} I had the day off, and had made zero plans except for taking Amelia to the day home. After her and Brian left in the morning, I hung out watching tv, doing some laundry and being lazy. I left mid morning to run some errands and got back just after lunch. A quick nap may have been taken on the couch before I got the motivation to take Harley for a walk. Brian had gone for a bike ride, so I picked Amelia up and we made some mini pizzas for dinner and then hung out and played. 

going night night with Harley
{saturday} we were invited to a play place for one of the boys from our baby groups birthday, so we headed out around 9:30am. Amelia had a fun time playing and it was great catching up with everyone from our baby group. Minus the epic meltdown Amelia threw when leaving and that continued in the car, it was a fun time :) We got home to have some lunch and put Amelia down for a nap (she ended up sleeping for 3 hours!).  I pretty much did nothing except take a short nap while Amelia did and it was fabulous. 

I did get the motivation and did a 21 day fix workout and then we got Vietnamese take out for dinner. There goes my workout, haha. Once Amelia was in bed, I did some crafting for her upcoming birthday party.

she always wants a headband too when I put one on to workout
{sunday} ever have one of those mornings where you wake up in a foul mood for no reason? That was me. I spent the morning vacuuming, cleaning up our closet and taking out clothes that I can't wear right now. Man, does my closet look empty now!!  Brian went to get groceries, so Amelia and I hung out watching a movie and doing a workout. Let's see, what else? When she had a nap, I took Harley for a short and freezing cold run! After that, Brian made chilli for dinner while I made corn bread muffins and banana muffins. Both were new recipes and turned out delicious!

And, there goes another weekend. How was yours?
