Ok, so here we are. I finally carved out a few minutes of alone time (after the toddler managed to sneak in the room and ask for his race car 52320234694 times) to check in and maybe ramble for a … Continue reading
Well, well, well. I had the best intention of writing other posts (like being a mom of 2 type things) before Tanner’s monthly update, but here we are! I honestly can’t believe how fast the first month has flown by. … Continue reading
Holy crap, I have two kids! I honestly don’t think it’s really hit me yet since we’re still in the middle of the super-new-baby-and-super-sleep-deprived-and-figuring-it-all-out phase. What I can tell you is that I am beyond happy and wouldn’t change a … Continue reading
Funny story: We’ve never had family photos taken before. I wasn’t even going to do maternity photos, but opted to do some last minute. Then of course there were the newborn photos. Gotta document my little man as.much.as.possible. Right? I … Continue reading
Whoa, Halloween was a week ago already? Last week marked my first full week attending classes at Oranj fitness (more on the studio to come!) and I have been loving them. I’m still trying to take a ton of different classes to see which I like best and what I can fit in my schedule: It’s been everything from tabata to bootcamp to kickboxing to hot barre…. the list goes on!
I’ve also been really loving that they offer free childcare so I made sure to dress Wes a bit festive for the occasion..

I actually had Wes wear his pumpkin costume that I got for him last year. He was still teeny tiny then and we didn’t go trick or treating, so it was money well saved. He had a blast going from house to house collecting candy and waving to the people as we left. I managed to stay out with him for an hour before it got dark and chilly out.
Most of the houses in our neighborhood have young kids, so tons of houses just left buckets of candy on their porches. It sorta defeated the purpose of the evening, but for Wes it was still exciting!
He used my trick or treat bag from when I was little!
The dogs kept a close eye on our candy sorting.
Bath time is fun time! Especially to warm up after a nippy walk around the block.
^^^ 1-800-GRUMP. Man oh man was he fussy that day. It stinks when it’s too cold to go outside (cough cough SNOW) so we really only went to the gym and ran a bunch of errands. Cabin fever is a really stinker when you’ve got a crank pants toddler.
Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Friday after the gym we went to the Airdrie Christmas Market. It was pretty small, but there was some neat vendors and I managed to get some early Xmas gifts.
Luckily, there was a playground nearby so we stretched our legs outside a bit.
Saturday morning we were up and at ’em early and headed down to Bowness Park for a mini family photo shoot! Our photographer sent us a sneak peak and I am anxiously awaiting to rest. It was cold out which made for a bit of a challenge when trying to keep Wes happy, but I think it went really well and we ended up having a lot of fun with it.
I’m hoping to check back in again this week to share some beer…or some other goodies? Who knows. See you then!
