Future thinking

Troy and I were discussing our "future house" on the weekend. It was nice to dream about all the outdoor furniture and the indoor furniture and what our minimalist-like family is going to be life. Work taunts me with all the babies, and my womb wanting one of my own. It was lovely to hold me new cousin the other weekend. I love getting that special time with family, especially a new addition to the family.

I can't wait until Canada Day on Thursday. I'm hoping this is going to be a very adventurous summer with lots of hiking and reading. Wait, reading doesn't sound adventurous, but it is to me! haha

Bad start to the week

I was bragging for too long. I knew it would going to catch up with me eventually. Last night, I couldn't sleep. I used to brag that i could sleep, no problem, but last night I couldn't get to sleep until 4:00am! That is just ridiculous for me. I went to sleep at that time and still had to wait up to go to work at 8:30. I ended up coming home anyways, because I wasn't feeling well. I'm not sure if it was the lake of sleep or what? My stomach hurt and I felt dizzy and pukey. I don't know. It's difficult to know. I can't believe this week is the beginning of July.

step into nature

I am an advocate for homemade or natural toys - like wooden blocks. I'm not a fan of toys that take batteries - toys that have sounds coming from them. I think that if a toy animal makes sounds that the child should make the sounds for it. I think that's how they learn best is being about to try it out for themselves as oppose to letting the batteries talk for them. What do you guys think? Excited about the weekend. Going to lounge in the camp and go swimming. Step away from technology and hid in nature for a few days!

Baby Eli

Introducing my baby cousin - Eli who is 3 months old. I had such a great time last weekend playing with and holding him. He's just so sweet. It's funny how people are so weird about holding babies, I guess it's just second nature to me now, I'm just so used to it. I did my infant massage class today; class 2 of 5. We had a baby that was only 1 week old, she was SO tiny and SO adorable. Time just goes by so fast. I can't believe June is almost over. May and June have just wizzed right by!

friday - hooray!

Troy and I went for a jog/walk last night. It was really nice. We stopped at a bench along the way that's kind of tucked into a little woodsy area off the salt marsh trail. We started to talk about engagement rings. I try not to get my hopes up. But we did have a casual converation about it. Here's to hoping! I'm not all about certified diamonds or anything. Maybe a little gem like an emerald but I really don't care. I'm excited for the weekend, I really need a break. Last weekend was fun in PEI but it was tiring.

my imaginary thoughts

Aesthetics mean a lot to me. I never, in my living room, have my overhead light on. I always need my floor lamp. I just find overhead lighting so harsh, no matter what kind of light bulb you have. pendant lights are so cool too. I picture having those in my house someday. I write about my "imaginary" house in here a lot. I want this in my house I want that in my house. I'm obsessed at the moment at planning an "imaginary" trip to Australia. So the house will have to be on hold for awhile. :)

Weekend is finally here! yipee!!

So excited that it's the weekend! I can't wait to not-do-anything! I may go for a run after work today. I haven't ran since Monday. But I was still feeling the effects of it on Wednesday, then last night I went to Ufit, so today is the next day that I can go! I'm trying to lenghten how far I can go. I signed up (finally) for the 13 kilometre run that I mentioned in a previous post, so now i just have to get ready for it. I have some routes that I like to do that don't have a lot of hills, which is great. So hopefully I'll do better at this whole thing. Hopefully the video games won't get the best of me this weekend and turn me lazy!

Are you ready?

I think i'm finally over my cold. I haven't even been online at all because of it. I just have been feeling gross this past week. I haven't been around or have been wanting to do anything.
My sister has roped me into doing a 13 kilometre run in September for the Terry Fox Run. I think I mentioned it in an eariler post! Anyway, this is my reminder to get my butt in gear! Does anyone out there have any tips on how to lengthen your running distance? I'm just making it up as I go, and search things online about it every once and awhile. I don't want diet supplements or anything, just healthy food and the gumption to get out there. I guess signing up for this run will give me that "boost" I've been looking for.

and away we go!

I'm crazy. Or so they tell me. I want to travel. I can't help myself. I hope Troy isn't reading this. Just kidding! He knows about my next, or shall I say our next potential trip. We are thinking about going to New Zealand and Australia! Thinking there may be a romantic hot air balloon ride in the mix as well! I'm going to look for cheaper car insurance soon as well as I'm thinking about getting rid of my cell phone when my contract is up at the end of next month, to try and save just a little bit more money. I hung out with my friend Caleigh last night, and she's evil when it comes to spending money. I want to go dress shopping now. Wait! I am going to go dress shopping! haha!

Goodbye Winter!


I'm so excited to finally say this! GOODBYE WINTER! SO LONG! Now summer has it's perks as well as it's downfalls. I'm not a fan of bugs and mosquitos, but it beats the freezing air and snow. We have been getting a lot of rain though lately. Yesterday, it just POURED! Today is nice though but tomorrow I hear it will rain again. It's nice though, the rain, so vegetables and produce will grow and Troy will keep on his mower, being a productive bee in lawn care. It's difficult to work when the grass is all dried up!

go go go!

Mmm.. just had some lunch. Feeling kinda sluggish today. Need to get out and do some more exercising. My sister has convinced me to join her in her team for the Terry Fox Run in September. It is 13 kilometres across the Confederation Bridge which links New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, two provinces here in Canada. So I need to start getting my butt in gear! I was doing well jogging wise for a while, but I've slacked off again. Don't need to look for the best diet pills or anything, just have to continue to eat healthy and get moving!
