Phewf! What a whirlwind of events in the last bit.  Mike and I are in Saskatchewan now, with all our belongings. Some might call it “moving” but I don’t think it’s sunk in yet…

Before we left Vancouver, we had a voucher for a free night to use at Waterfront Fairmont Hotel in downtown Van. The room was free, but having the dog there was $50 and parking overnight was $55, lol

Painter loved it though….

Here was our view. The Vancouver Convention center, along with Canada Place and a cruise ship waiting to take of.

Mmmm, Hotel snacks.

The front desk lady gave Painter some snacks too. He got a couple bags of KaliWags, he’s never had them before- and he was loving them!

Here’s a view from the bathroom- just make sure you close the blinds before you use the facilities!

Mike and I walked around town, cruised past my old apartment building. I had a studio apartment here. This building is a heritage building, one of the oldest in Van- It was cute and kitschy, with a claw foot tub and a murphy bed that you pulled out of the wall. Only down side…MICE! EW!

We went to Stepho’s for lunch- our FAVOURITE greek restaurant in the world! Always a line, and never let down with the amazing experience.

The Olympic cauldrin was glowing. We went to watch the fireworks too, but I didn’t take pics:)

So this is the place we used to call home….. It is now just a memory :(

We traveled across Canada with our truck and a Uhaul. From the mountains to the prairies.

I know that having the love and support of our families will make this transition an easy ones. Already, my mom is spoiling my unborn little boy. We walked into my moms spare room and she had a whole wardrobe for the little guy!

We are staying with Mike’s dad in Regina. We are blessed to be staying here right now, until we move into our new place which we have rented for 1 year.

Painter is in absolute heaven here. Just lounging all day. Loving life!!!

I went lane swimming yesterday, I also went to a breast feeding meeting (the Le Leche Leaugue). I need to learn how the heck to do this. I found the meeting very helpful!

Things are going great- We have our studio fully set up and business is back up and running. Having family around is so nice. Mmmmmm, chocolate Zucchini cake…. fresh garden veggies….tacos…lots of good stuff to feed my endless pit of a pregnant belly (well- not really endless…I actually experience a lot of heart burn if I eat to much…oh and baby is using my bladder as a trampoline lately!

Thanks for stopping by!!!! Love and Light!!!!
