What I'm reminiscing about...
Thinking back to last spring/summer when I was pregnant and I was tired and found it hard to move around.  Even though Q has had a few rough nights lately when it comes to sleeping, and I am tired, I am still happy I can work out and go for walks and runs this summer. 

What I'm loving...
Instagram stories.  They are time consuming and I don't always sit through everyone's posts, but I do love seeing travels and everyday family stuff.  When I put Q down for his nap in the afternoon, then I usually take a few minutes to watch them.  Someone that I follow is in Turkey right now and Fethiye, Turkey, has shot to the top of my travel destination list.  It looks so beautiful.

What we've been up to...
We spent the past weekend in Ottawa and had a great time.  I wrote about our weekend here.

What I'm dreading...
Camping, or specifically sleeping in the tent with Q.  If this weekend was any indication, he may not do well in the dark tent, in an unfamiliar bed, etc.  At least this year, we have our own site (our camping friends will be at the site next to us) so hopefully we won't keep them awake too!
(Last year's camping trip)

What I'm working on...
Nothing specific, just keeping busy with mom stuff.  I am enjoying my time off from work while I still can.  

What I'm excited about...
Summertime.  It is my favourite time of year.  E will be home for the first week of summer and I'm looking forward to finding some new spots around the city to explore with him (and Q). 

What I'm watching/reading...
We are watching The Handmaid's Tale, Veep, The Keepers (on Netflix), and I'm watching The Bachelorette.  And we will start the new season of House of Cards.

I'm reading our next book club selection, The Ballroom. 

What I'm listening to...
My Spotify playlist that has everything from Drake to Adele to the theme from La La Land. However, I can't listen to many of my selections when E is around since there is more than enough explicit language. 

What I'm wearing...
I listened to Shay and Sheaffer and picked up a couple of Madewell t-shirts at Nordstrom the last time I was there, and I love them.  They aren't expensive, they feel so soft, and they have a comfortable fit.  I will be going back for more the next time I'm downtown. 

What I'm doing this weekend...
Making some homemade pizza on Friday night, one of E's friends is coming over on Saturday, and then we had a housewarming party on Sunday.  

What I'm looking forward to next month...
My birthday, another fun run with E, Father's Day, and the last day of school.  Excited to take the last day of school picture to see how E's changed.

What else is new...
We got a spot for Q in the daycare that we wanted so that is a relief.  

What is your favourite vacation spot?
If we are just going with summer vacation spots, then I will say the Maritimes of Canada (I can't just keep it to one province, so I'll include them all).  My hometown, Shelburne, is just beautiful in the summer, Halifax has so many fun things to do, and I always have a great time in PEI.

Linking up with ShayMel, and Sheaffer.


  1. Oh my gosh, I'd never thought of Turkey as somewhere I'd want to go but that picture is amazing. Adding that to my list :)

    And I also love the Maritimes. We're hoping to do an Eastern road trip next summer.

  2. I have yet to go to pei! Enjoy your time this summer!!

  3. Halifax and PEI are on my list of places to get to! I laughed at the Thug Life/Housewife meme, I like a good rap song too and think, can I still listen when I have kids lol. Instastories are addicting, especially when they show far away places.
