things i wish i would have known about pregnancy

now that we are seriously two days away from meeting our little goldfish i’ve been reflecting on the past nine months and what i’ve learned, what i wish i would have listened to, what people tell you etc. there is so much information out there in internet and book world about pregnancy (why not add […]

weekend recap countdown to goldfish

this weekend i just prayed. i prayed God if the goldfish decides to come this weekend let it be and let it be awesome but if it’s ok with you just give joe and i one last weekend as the two of us. i feel a bit like we’ve been given this gift to be […]

finally friday baby moon

well….. this is our last weekend before baby. what?!? WHAT??!?!! this is just nuts to think about but honestly, i don’t think i’ve ever looked forward to a weekend more. we really don’t have anything concrete planned other than a few places that we really want to go. (salt, pentwater, southerner) i know it’s not […]

thirty eight weeks

gulp again. as of today we are officially one week away from having the goldfish. unless it makes a debut before it’s scheduled date. thirty eight weeks officially of pregnancy.  last night my friend aimee and i went and got pedicures and the lady who was giving me a pedicure told me that the signs […]

new couch for screen room

weekend recap preparing for baby

i was thinking this morning that i can’t remember the last time i woke up on a monday and did not have a sore back and shoulders. i’m not complaining, i love productive weekends around the house and cottage. this weekend we stuck close to home working on the house, nursery, garden and the bottomless […]

one year

it’s been one year since i first shared the story of the loss of our first baby. it’s been an odd week. i’ve known this day was coming and i’ve honestly just done my best to shove it aside and try not to think about it. it’s a weird feeling when you have a baby […]

finally friday nesting edition

this weekend i’ll be officially “nesting” maybe? i’m sure i’ll squeeze it in somewhere. we’ve actually been chipping away at things all summer so we are kind of nearing the end of getting everything ready. tonight we are heading to a company outing at the whitecaps (baseball) game. I’m so grateful that it’s not 90 […]
