Yo Yo Yo!

Woke up this morning, feeling a bit groggy. Started mucking around an already messy kitchen…

Made coffee and couldn’t quite get the can opener to cooperate!

Tim Hortons Coffee grinds

Then I decided to whip up a quick batch of almond butter for my toast- (pregnancy thing- I am all about toast these days)

It turned out good, but I put a bit to much vanilla powder in it. (spontaneous still half asleep decision)
If you want to make your own almond butter, all you need is:

2 cups of almonds,
2 Tablespoons of honey (or maple syrup) (OR if you don’t have either, you can use coconut oil)
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt.

Put these in your food processor and blend for like 10 minutes (it takes a while. Use a spatula to periodically scrape down the sides to keep it all moving.)

The day shaped much better once I got through morning (the morning wasn’t that bad- I just like being dramatic and I need something to talk about, right?)
I went for a nice stroll to Rocky Point with one of my bestest friends.

We were talking about future plans. I have decided I want to own a house in Saskatoon and a condo in California (as long as the prices down south remain on the lower side). I don’t think I’ve mentioned to you yet that Mike and I are heading back to Saskatoon. Have I? Well, yes- I am having my baby there and I’m going to stay for at least 1 year. I’m not sure what’s going to happen after that, but from what I’ve been thinking about lately- I really like the plan of a having 2 homes- one close to family in Saskatoon and one in sunny California. 

Getting pregnant really makes you want to have a plan of action. I know in 5 years our babes will be going to school- so I want to know what I’m doing and where I’m going. I’m loving my plan. With my career, I know I’ll need to spend time in LA, so it will work out nicely to have a condo to stay at anytime we want to go down there (a-hem… in winter!!!).

The appeal of the prairies:

(my mom, and the rest of my family. I miss them a lot and I feel like it’s time I am closer to them. I want my kid to know his amazing grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins)

Mom and Grandson

We haven’t told Painter yet that he’s soon going to be a prairie dog, hee hee. Hope he’s ok with it!

Then when it’s time to buy a condo in Cali, my vote is in The South Bay area!!

We are leaving Vancouver in 2 weeks! Yes- yikes! I am really sad to leave, but I know it’s for the best. I can always come back if I just can’t live without it, In the meantime, I’ll keep growing this little guy inside me, and see how it all unfolds!!. We have been packing, selling, donating- all the good stuff that comes with moving.

Do you have a 5 year plan? I never really even thought about it until I got a bun in the oven.


Oh Happy Day! Talk sooooooooooooon!
