Hey friends, happy Thursday! Thought I’d check in and catch you up on what we’ve been up to lately. To be honest, I have been super busy + Wes has been super cranky + I sorta lost my writing mojo. I really need to not let social media get to me…I get stuck comparing myself to others and when I don’t think my presence (i.e.: this blog) isn’t as great as others, then I get super let down.
Ok ok, let’s not be all negative nancy here. So here’s what we’ve been doing…
Friday: pancakes. because…..FRIDAY.
I finally got the finishing touches done on some bibdanas my mom made and had Wes try one on for size. Perfect! PS: We are open for hire if anyone wants to buy any 😉
An unexpectedly long nap means mama makes congo bars. So delicious. Also, so deadly on the hips.
Pre “work” dinner and snuggles with my I SCREAM baby.
I judged a Specialty category at Beerfest (more on that next Wednesday!)
Saturday: Morning park time with Wes
I WORKED the Brewster’s tent at Beerfest. It was a long shift (2-10pm), but we were given breaks to wander around the different halls to check out some of the other beer and food that was offered.
Sunday: I didn’t really get a Mother’s Day (at first, I was A-OK with it, but towards the end of the day, I was super sad about it, especially after seeing all the mother’s day crap on Facebook…eek) but in a sense, I was ‘gifted’ some me-time which came in the form of going on the Calgary Brewery Tours Spirit of Alberta Tour (Again, more on this next Wednesday)
I was gone from about 10:30-7pm and came home to whip up a super quick dinner.
Monday/Tuesday: These days don’t really count. I was a terrible combination of sad, mad, tired, you name it. Not much happened besides some walks, workouts, and baking cookies.
These are a few of my favorite things. Shakeology is a great restart for me especially after a long weekend that includes alcohol, and these chocolate chip cookies just plain ol’ make me happy as a pig in mud.
I worked Tuesday night and made a decent amount of money, so that’s a great way to end the day I suppose!
Wednesday: I now gotta have pancakes 2x a week because they’re so dang good. It’s a crying shame that Wes has taken a liking to them too, because he steals at least two off my plate each time.
^Some diaper bag favorites: Bubbles & Balms Butt Butter; Pure Haven Essentials Boo Boo Stick <–this is the link to my friend’s consultant site. She is a rep for the company (which is currently only operating in the US, so US friends please check it out!); Love Child Organics Oaty Chomps
This kid has been rip-roaring through everything in his room lately. It’s like he’s a tornado and destroys everything in his path! Last week, he had a penchant for throwing all the diapers and now he’s into dumping my diaper bag.
I threw together a healthy chicken zucchini casserole and it was delicious. Of course mine didn’t turn out as pretty as the one from the recipe I used, but no flavor points were deducted.
Tyler and I sipped the remainder of a bottle of mead I purchased from the tour I went on on Sunday. It wasn’t much haha
Marinara sauce brings out the biggest of smiles from him. (Same goes with farts).
So there you have it, folks!
