I’m coming back to the blog. For me. Because I miss it. I love blogging and I need to get this train rolling again. So here goes… My first post in a while. It’s kind of like going to the gym after you’ve missed for a long time- It’s all familiar- but you feel rusty and just need to ease back into it. But DAY-UM it feels good to be back. I even completely erased all the data on my laptop, so it will be more efficient for my blogging:) YAY!

Here’s me these days…almost 5 months preggers. (I’m due November 27)

5 months pregnant

 Pregnancy has been a whirlwind of emotions and craziness.

Some blissful frustrating moments so far:

-INSANE morning sickness (more like, morning/noon/night/anytime sickness!)

- pure utter exhaustion

-zits!!! woo hooo!!!!

-no clothing fits anymore

- a middle of the night scare that landed me in emergency at the hospital

-a few days ago when my left foot was SO swollen that the doctor thought I had a blood clot in my leg. (thank goodness the test came back clear- NO blood clot! 

HOWEVER, there has been some blissful, beautiful amazing moments. Like when the baby kicks up a storm, watching him touch his face and kick and tumble around during Ultra Sounds. OH and finding out that IT”S A BOY!!!!

It's a boy!

So now with Mike, Painter and baby…I am outnumbered 3-1! 

Everyone in my family and many of my friends thought we were having a girl. Thank goodness we didn’t paint the nursery pink..(we don’t have a nursery yet…oops… more news coming..) We had a girls name picked and everything, but finding out it was a boy was a wonderful surprise… But now…finding a name… something he will be called for the rest of his life. This choice is in my hands (can you see me sweating? lol) 

SO, my friend gave me this book…it’s great and all…

Baby names book, Ultimate baby Names book,
Except for the back where it says “Choosing the perfect name has never been so easy!”. Instead it should read, “This book is entertaining and it gets you thinking, but don’t expect any miracles!”

I’m sure the name will come to us. Any suggestions?

Remember last year when I won the Whistler Water Blogging Contest?

Well, part of my winnings was a free night at The Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, which I still haven’t used, a year later- So I booked a room for next weekend- woot woot.

In other news, at Whole Foods I discovered Organic Lives’ macaroons got new packaging… FANCY! I kept the empty box so I could tried to replicate the ingredients and make my own.

Organic Lives Chocolate Macaroons

Yummy yummy. Basically raw perfection in a box.

OH! And at the Farmers Market on Sunday, I on a whim asked the worker guy how much a flat of raspberries were- he replied $25.. (and individually they are $3.99 each.. Soooo, I bought 12 baskets of raspberries for 25 bucks. A steal of a deal if you ask me. I washed most of them to freeze for smoothies.

And another impulse purchase was the lip color “Chelsea Girls” by NARS. Anyone have it? I’ve wanted to buy it for years, but thought it might be a bit beige-y for me… we’ll see:) Need to pamper ourselves here and there, right?

Pucker up buttercup!


I just wanted to check in. This was kind of like a test blog. Like “oh ya, that’s how you do it” I think I can do this;)

Throughout my pregnancy so far- I feel like this quote is perfect for me. 

don't worry typography

My mom tells me I worry to much. You have to worry a bit… but I also need to RELAX! I find writing this blog relaxing (most of the time…hee hee), so this will be one of my outlets….

Alrighty then… nice talking with you! As always… love and light from my heart to yours! Talk soooooon
