Lately I have been really bad at a few things:

Posting regularly on the ol' blog
Responding to your wonderful (and much appreciated!) comments
Cleaning the house
Going to yoga
Keeping my outfit clean for longer than 20 minutes
Responding to emails in a timely fashion
Getting a full night's sleep
Changing a diaper on a wriggling octopus while trying to avoid a mess (ick). 

But, I have been getting really good at a few things too:

Watching Peanut like a hawk as he climbs a flight of stairs for the 10th time today
Teaching him how to sign "more" and working on "all done"
Cooking some healthy and pretty delicious meals and snacks
Chasing my son around the house and attempting to minimize the damage he will cause to himself/furniture
Tidying up after the disaster "Hurricane Peanut" leaves in his wake
Trying to reduce our spending and stay "on budget" (example: I made our own flour tortillas for dinner tonight instead of buying some, and they were delicious and easy! I am converted!)

So please excuse the bad. All the good is getting in the way lately. And that's just fine with me! 

Here are some other things that have happened lately:

I cut off my hair. I got pretty fed up with the damaged, thinning hair I was left with after having the babe, so I sucked it up and went and chopped it all off. This is the shortest I've ever had it, and it's been an interesting adjustment. It's not long enough to put in a ponytail anymore, which was my go-to style, so I have to learn some new tricks! 

My Mother's Day gift from Hubby was a cooking course with Chef Xavier Lacaze from Top Chef Canada!!! He's also the executive chef at Muse Restaurant here in Calgary. I am a Food Network addict, so this was the best gift ever! I went with my momma, which was awesome, and we cooked and drank wine and ate until we almost burst. It was phenomenal. The menu was right from Muse's kitchen, so we learned how to make some deliciousness that will now be in my regular rotation. And Chef Xavier was amazing! Also, I tried escargot. Honestly, they looked like the hideous little snails they were, and that was pretty tough to get over. But they just tasted like the butter and cream sauce they were cooked in. I doubt I will be eating them in the future. But glad I tried them! 



  1. That cooking class sounds amazing! I had the same feelings as you when I tried escargot. Your haircut looks great!

  2. So Jealous of your cooking class!!! What a fabulous way to spend a day!

  3. Your hair looks fabulous! And your husband rocks. What a great Mother's Day gift.

  4. your hair looks awesome! I love it!

  5. Love your hair! I want to do that tonight!! Chop Chop!!

    And that cooking sounds like a blast!

    I am a new follower and love your blog so far!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! They make my day!
