First time using the juicer

I used my juicer for the first time today with what I had around. I'm a newbie so I had a little trouble ha! The apple got stuck in the shoot and I had to unplug and struggle to get it out haha. Baby K thought it was hilarious. Seeing that had some trouble I think I should fully read the instructions and try again tomorrow ha!

A recipe I want to try tomorrow is a vitamin C boost.


I got a few recipes from friends too so if you have any juicing recipes to share, let me know!

Baby K is feeling a little better today but not fully himself yet. Lots of cuddles will definitely help ;)

Not so wordless Wednesday

I have lots of pics but lots to say too ha!

Today I decided to add a third feeding for baby boy. I added a Farley biscuit mixed with water for breakfast. Baby K seems to have a 9am wake up time the past 5 days. So at 9am I nursed him and 9:30 he had breakfast. Lunch will be at 12pm and he will have cereal and apple purée then dinner at 5pm cereal and butternut squash ;)

Yesterday was stroller fitness. The class is great and it's such a good workout! My body is sore today!

The weather has been amazing! But we haven't turned our AC on yet and boy does the house get hot! My husband had the window in the office open and Zoe jumped out!!!! But we got her back in quickly whew!

Hope you are all having a great week.

Pics in no order using the blogger app ;)

39 Weeks Pregnant - Membrane Sweep

 39 weeks!

 We are on week 39! My OB was telling me for a while now that my little one would be early. Which was really exciting for me.. however at 39 weeks, it's not really "early" anymore.

At yesterdays appointment my OB did a Membrane Sweep (where she does an internal exam and opens the cervix just a bit and does a sweeping motion).  This is to help speed things along. She said she will do it again next week if baby has not arrived yet.

She suggested some things that speed up labor... like Castor oil and eating a big salad, lots of greens. None of which I want to eat.

So the waiting continues. I'm just praying for a healthy labor and delivery and a healthy little boy. He will come when he is ready. :)

For now I'll be doing a lot of this...


 And this... ha!

The weeks and years just fly by

Today 9 years ago my dad passed away. I can't remember if I ever went into detail about his passing here on my blog. But it's one of those things, that some days I can talk openly about it and other days I just rather not get too deep into it because I don't want to feel so sad bringing up the past. My sister said it perfectly on her Facebook status today...
You know your an amazing father when after 9yrs your kids still look to you for advice, and even though you can't answer.. They know exactly what you would say. You were an amazing man, and you taught us a ton of life lessons that most don't ever learn. We are strong because of you. Missing you always.. R.I.P Daddy. 9yrs today.

So today as I do every year I went to the cemetery. It's always so calming there and it's the one place I can be so honest and true in expressing my feelings without any judgement. And my dad was just that person, he never judged people.

I can hardly believe that it's been 9 years already! (I bought that chair for us to sit on when we visit, 9 years ago!)

This week I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant. We decided to put a middle name for baby K that is similar to my dad's name, we went back and forth on it and every time I went to the cemetery this year I felt that it was the perfect thing to do.

Today I also had an OB appt. OB said my cervix was soft and baby's head is in position which are all great signs for my first baby. She thinks he will be early. So let's see!!

It's a beautiful fall day here. Hope you all are having a great day.

Ok, so I wrote the above this morning and saved it.  The rest of the afternoon went by and I started to feel pain in my pelvic area and a sick feeling like weak and a big headache.

So I came straight home to lay down.  Right now I can barely walk!

36 weeks pregnant today!

 This week!

How Far Along:
36 weeks... Just 4 weeks to go!

Size of baby: iphone app says baby should be about 6lbs and that
next week it's considered full term!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 36lbs

Movement: Hiccups and lots of movement

Symptoms: Same as the last couple weeks , Joint pain, hands,knees, pelvic area. Emotional, I cry very easily, I'm more sensitive too these days.

What I'm looking forward to? This weekend, the nursery will arrive, finally!
and looking forward to finally meeting this precious little baby we made.

Yesterday I was looking for Zoe and she always comes when I call. So when she doesn't
it's usually because she is somewhere that she shouldn't be, or she escaped outside.


She was where she shouldn't be. Can't blame her, all the baby things are soft and cozy. I covered them all up with garbage bags for now. I know she will get to them eventually.

I hope Zoe adapts well to the baby.  Right now she is always around me. She follows me everywhere, when I'm relaxing she always comes to sleep on my legs or beside me. Love my little cat, I hope she loves the baby too.

We also installed the Car seat!

It was easy to install so that was good. Our Suv has latches so it was just snapping them in and making them tight, funny thing is we also put the seat belt through too, but afterwards I read the manual again and having those latches alone is fine.

It's another busy weekend ahead. Grandmas 80th bday party, and Thanksgiving.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Third Trimester brings on more change

Third Trimester changes are creeping up. I feel my joints getting looser, my foot size increasing, my mood swings getting crazier, and my nesting stage completely taking over. And the dreams, ha! they are getting crazier! I keep dreaming of the hospital losing or switching my baby, boo! However, in my dreams my delivery is quick and painless haha, that part of the dream is good.

On the weekend I went to buy a couple pairs of comfy shoes... My regular size was 7 1/2 I'm now in a 9! I've seen cute shoes online that I wanted to get, but I really need to try things on with my new size and all. But many of the store I went to don't have what I want!

So for now I bought these 

 And these, which I used as slippers yesterday haha!

I have 3 events this month, and with belly growing like crazy every week, I need to see what outfit will work pretty much a couple days before each event. This will be fun. Hoping some cute dresses I have still fit. 

I'm getting really excited and I can't wait to put the baby stuff together, just need to make sure I keep this little one from claiming things as her own haha! I need to make sure my furbaby gets a lot of love too even when baby comes. Maybe we will get her one of those big ceiling to floor scratch posts for the basement as a gift.

Love Zoe!

Today is back to school for all the kids! My SIL sent pics of my niece heading off to GR 5!
Look how cute she is in her uniform! Adorable!

Weekend Post and boy is it a HOT summer!

It is HOT here in Toronto! The humidity is crazy too! This preggo can hardly breathe out there.

Saturday night husband and I went for a long walk on lakeshore. It was a beautiful night but by the the end of our walk my hands and feet were swollen! Not cool!

Yesterday was even hotter!

My bff had her son's baptism yesterday, I don't have pics with his cute outfit, it was just too hot for him, so they changed him right after the ceremony so he could stay fresh!

But still cute as a button! Congrats Baby A!

Little A is patiently awaiting for his bff baby K to arrive. Look at this belly! haha! My husband was shocked yesterday saying it looked like it grew so much over night! I get sorta freaked out thinking how much bigger it needs to get haha! yikes! 109 more days to go! :)

Zoe also turned 4 this month so we bought her a new scratch post.  Since the one we had in our master bathroom for her broke and she started using our bed as a scratch post, bad kitty. Good thing she loves her posts much better!

Look how little she was! <3

What a Friday!

My Friday started early! 530am I was up early to take my mom to an appointment at the hospital. It was so dark and rainy outside I was dreading the drive to the city. Before I left I did my usual morning routine...view twitter. That's when I saw all the tweets about the massive earthquake in Japan and all the tsunami warnings. My heart goes out to all the people in Japan.
On my way down to the city I listened to the radio and I was happy to see that there was a TV in the hospital waiting room on CNN, many people were gathered around and watching. It's where I spent most my day.

My mom had a procedure done to check her arteries in her heart. She's always had a heart murmur but they found a larger hole that needs to be closed. So I spent my day at the hospital.

Everything is ok with my mom, but she will need to get that hole closed up.

When we got back to my moms house my SIL and niece were there waiting. Since they went into a main artery on my mom, she couldn't be alone for 24 hours. So my sister and my brother came later and we spent the evening chatting away.

She is soo adorable and loves when you sing to her.

Today my husband is going to tryyy and finish up the reno's so I can finally have a clean house again.

Here is a before and after

After... Crown Molding, Potlights and new Chandelier.

Hope you all have a great Saturday.

So glad to be off this week!

I'm off this week! And I love it! I love not working (minus the whole not getting paid thing haha!) But If I could work from home I totally would! So I have some BIG side biz goals for the new year!

I just love the holidays, we've been visiting family and friends and having a great time catching up with every one.

The last 10 years I've had a lot of different jobs and from every single job I have friends I still keep in contact with, even if it's only a couple times a year we see each other we have blogs and facebook and email these days so we are always in contact with each other. :) Tonight I met with one of those friends for a coffee, it was so nice to catch up.

Zoe loves when we are home. I love how this little fur ball loves our attention and always wants to be around us. When husband and I are sitting on the couch she's always between us. And she follows me everywhere! The minute I get up she following me. Wherever I go sit, she's beside me.
(I was yelling at her to get off the table, so she went on the chair)
Hope you all are enjoying your holidays!!! Hoping to do a VLOG (video giveaway) soon! I'm a little nervous about it though! :)

With God All Things Are Possible

First let me talk a little about the past 2 days, the rescue of the MINERS! Let me say WOW! what an emotional and amazing rescue! I'm so happy for the miners and their family's! One of my favorite stories I heard was the one where 2 miners stopped their truck that day 70 days ago because they saw a white butterfly and were fascinated with it flying around in the mine. They stopped to look at it, and that's when the collapse happened just further ahead. The butterfly saved their lives! God was there!

Tonight I went to visit my sister and we spent some time shopping around. I bought these cute little vanilla scented candles and these little mini bible verses . Love them! You know I love having my house full of word art so these are perfect little finds. I placed one near my front door and one in my dining room :)

And of course I bought Zoe a gift for her litter room.
FRIDAY!!!! the best day of the week is near! Sooo I'm happy!

Happy FRIDAY!!!!

Oh Friday!

Ahhh Friday! You couldn't have come at a better time haha! What a week! Work has totally drained me this week. So glad I only have one more day of that torture till the weekend!

Tonight I went out makeup shopping. I bought a $20.00 lipstick, I don't usually wear lipstick, I mostly do glosses. But with actual lipstick I really like Matte ones. I guess I never noticed how many Matte lipsticks they don't sell! There was not much selection. I got a really nice Matte pink lipstick and really love it, worth the 20 bucks.

I've been slowly cutting down on the coffee. I did really well this week. Every morning I heat half a cup of milk and add it to half a cup of coffee. I had only 1 coffee a day this week and only twice this week I had a afternoon tea. So I'm getting there :)

Sooo the weekend is almost here! I'm excited for the weekend. Nothing specific planned so far but spending time with the husband going out and having fun will be on the list! My goal this weekend is to choose the healthier choices when eating out. I tend to forget this when I'm out having a good time.

Hope you all had a better work week than I did!!

So Glad It's FRIDAY!

I'm sooo glad it's Friday tomorrow! This week has been busy! And the drive to work alone... well it's lonely! I miss my husband sooooo much! I didn't think it would matter not carpooling with each other, but I guess I'm really missing that 40 min chat back and forth from work! And our daily lunch dates. (we use to work 5 mins from each other) Miss him!

So I'm happy it's the weekend!

This weekend I'm hosting a Jewelry show at my house. It will be fun seeing friends and family.

This week so far I was able to get in 3 workouts... BUT my calorie counting pretty much ended on Tuesday... Yesterday I had Pizza for dinner and cake for dessert... and today well... lets just say I ate all the carbs I missed out on at the beginning of the week!

Soooo I'll just leave it at that for now.

Hope you all have a good weekend! :)
