Pregnancy Update: 28 Weeks

I call the third trimester the home stretch of pregnancy but really…3 months does seem like a long time to be “stretching”.

Manitoba Marathon Relay: Race Recap

This marathon relay was one of those things that seemed like an OK idea at the time and gradually became a “I’m going to regret this, aren’t I?” thing as the weeks leading up to race day approached.

Mayhem Monday: Milestones, Giveaways and Summer Fun

It’s official, I’m in the home stretch of this pregnancy! Yihaw! I’m not 28 weeks and have been asked several times if I’m due in the next couple. Sadly…no. I have 3 months to go and you don’t need to point out that I’m big. I know. I see myself and carry this load aroundContinue Reading

Introducing Bessie

Oh boy…we did it. We are now the reluctant owners of a van. I never thought I’d see the day when a box on wheels would find it’s way into our driveway but as I sit down to write there…there she be. Bessie joined our family over the weekend and as much as I hateContinue Reading
