Be jealous. All of you.

Be jealous. All of you.

4. How tall are you? 5’9″

5. How much do you weigh? The right amount for me.

Sure sign of an authentic foot selfie: the tattoo.

7. Any piercings? 2 in my right ear lobe, 2 in my left, left tragus (sp?). I had a belly button ring and a couple more ear piercings but my old age and conservative husband keep demanding I remove them all.

11. Something you miss? My grandparents.

12. Favorite song? I like anything that I can sing horribly off-pitch to while convincing myself that I could totally win The Voice.

13. How old are you? Much older than my maturity level would suggest.



14. Zodiac sign? Sagittarius, I think.

21. How long does it take you to shower? Probably not as long as it should.

32. The book you’re currently reading? The 5 Love Languages of Children (I’ll be reviewing soon. Sneak peak: it’s completely rocking my existence).

Pretty amazing read.

34. Last person you talked to? Myself. What?….you do it too, admit it.

48. Have you ever used it? …

50. Who should answer these questions next? YOU!

Body After Baby: 4 week update

I can’t believe my girl is 4 weeks old already. On the one hand, it seems like these past 4 weeks have gone by really quickly but on the other hand, it feels like we’ve always had her with us. Strange contradiction. I can honestly barely remember being pregnant with her. That massive bump isContinue Reading

My Baby’s Birth Story- Part 2

So when we last left off, I was large, round and completely exposed on the operating room table.

Not long after, everything was checked, Hubby was brought inContinue Reading

My Baby’s Birth Story-Part 1

Now that the Little Lady has been with us long enough that we’ve forgotten how we ever did life without her (even her brother’s are still in love with her…amazing!), I thought I’d take some time to share the story of how she came into our lives.

Mayhem Monday: So I had a Baby

As the title may (or may not, no judgement here) elude to: I kinda, sorta had a baby last week. My world has most definitely been rocked. After two boys, imagine my surprise when it was announced to me by my hubby “Holy Cow…we got a girl!!” as I lay on the operating table listeningContinue Reading

What to Pack in your Hospital Bag when Having a Baby

I find it slightly humourous, the amount of information you can find about what to pack for the hospital when you have a baby. In my 2 previous visits, I have seen everything from women who packed nothing because baby made a surprise early appearance to women who come with a full-sized suitcase jam-packed withContinue Reading

Time to Bid Adieu to this Pregnancy

The time is drawing near, the end is in site and this big ol’ belly of mine needs to evict its prisoner sooner, rather than later. I’ve lamented about restless leg syndrome, I’ve slept fewer hours over the past 4 months of being pregnant than I ever imagined possible and have busted the seems outContinue Reading
