A Different Kind of Five

My Five Favourites for this week:

These guys are most definitely my favs,
and I love it when they hang out together like this.

Hopefully there will be much hanging out this weekend.....

What are you guys up to?
Nanny B is taking us to the Saltscapes Expo today,
tomorrow we might go out for brunch just because brunch is so damn good!
And if this crappy rain will EVER let up I'm going to get Dr. Nails to
 grill me up a great big ole steak.
( you can take the girl out of Alberta, but you can't take the Alberta out of the girl ; )

 Happy Weekend!

Artsy is NOT Fartsy V.2

I could very easily have titled this post  'I love Dollarama'
because it might be my favorite place on earth.
Some people like walmart, others hang out at the mall,
But me - total dollarama girl.
Pretty much every time I'm in there you will hear me exclaiming (loudly)
"How the HELL do they make this stuff for a dollar?!"
Trust me, you will hear me.

Anyways, there are great things to buy, and great things to do with the things you buy:

Stickers + Canvas + Paint =

Being on the changing table is not such a bad place to be
when your Safari Friends are there too....

But seriously, how do they DO it?!?!
I guess I'm just glad that they do.
Holy crap, I'm a total nerd aren't I?

On the Bright Side of the Sun

It occurred to me the other day that I have struck it rich,
totally hit the jackpot, I have found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Call it what you want, call me lucky or spoiled.
 I simply like to call it blessed...

Whatever it is, I must have done something right
 to get to look at this every day:

So very pretty, but oh so very early....

No matter the time of day, there's nothing wrong with this view.
( This is me trying to look at the bright side of being up with the sun )
Positivity my friends, it'll get you through the day.

But seriously,

thank God for nap time...

What have you done with my baby?!?!
Jake was 5 months old yesterday!
holy crap, I missed it.
That's a big deal, my little is getting so big!

Yesterday we set up his high chair

not that he's eating food YET, but soon enough....

and holding his bottle all by himself? What?
All of a sudden this kid is doing stuff! 

When did this happen?

In so many ways I am super stoked for him, because now he can do STUFF.
like splash in the bath, sit in the shopping cart, hold on to his toys.
But in so many other ways I am so sad for me.
because sometimes I wish he would stay little forever....

See, he's sitting up, all by himself.

Five For Friday

Another Friday!
Hope you all have plans for a nice Easter weekend!

Besides waiting on the Big Bunny we are going to:
 have a delicious Easter dinner at nanny b's,
welcome home some intrepid (and probably very weary) travellers,
make an attempt at self control and avoid the chocolate eggs,
make real eggs into delicious devilled ones,
and eat pie. with ice cream. yum.
( I know pie defeats the avoiding chocolate part -
but I'm just gunna pretend that they cancel each other out. )

Oh, and remember when I said we were going to be on the Joe Fresh site?
Well, we finally made it.  See us HERE! ( you might have to scroll down a teeny bit )

Okay, check out the stuff I'm diggin on today:

1. This Coffee bean owl that I have seen floating around the blogshpere everywhere 

( If anyone knows where it came from let me know so I can give cred where it's due! )

2. Cammo Pants
(once again I ask you: why does the Little have cooler clothes than me?)

3.  The "Gage Says" series over at Delirious Rhapsody, her kid says some seriously funny stuff.

4. Onsies with super cute sayings on them:
I'd like to be the person who got to think up those sayings
although I mightn't be very good at it....

5.  And the fact that I have taught the Little to stick out his tongue at me,
now he's doing it constantly!

Friday is also my favorite day out in the blogosphere.
There's a bunch of bloggers who do the most amazing friday favs lists.
check out their compilations:  here and here.
Webertainment at it's best!

Happy Friday!

Letters for my Lovelies

I have a confession to make.
I am taking advantage of you guys.
 I am using you to write love letters to my family and to my furniture.

I hope you don't mind, because I plan on continuing to do so. 
It's my way of telling them how I feel, and preserving these little notes for future reference.
Oh, and so when I do bad things I can totally use these as leverage.
{ Everyone needs a get out of jail free card ; }
Now, if only my furniture could read, it would know how much it meant to me.

Here's another one:

Dear Dr. Nails,

you work so hard all day long at your job,
and then you come home and work so hard on our house.
I wish you didn't have to work so hard at all,
but I am glad that you do.

Thank you for making us a beautiful home.

Love, Me.

Trendy Tuesday v4

Freshening Up!

So I checked my email the other day and much to my surprise I had one from Joe Fresh;
aka the Superstore's clothing brand.
Somehow their media tracker found our little blog's Trendy Tuesday series,
and they (naturally) loved the Little's styling ways.

They asked us to upload a photo of him rocking the brand on their tumblr site,
and we were happy to oblige, be sure to check it out!
( at the time I posted this the picture wasn't up, but I couldn't wait any more! )
( I'll let you know when it's there...)

Anyways, on to this week's trends...
Take 3

Hoodie, cords, and shoes.

 Overalls and a long-sleeve onsie. 

Sweats and a long-sleever.

All clothing is Joe Fresh today,
so many cute things, so little time to actually wear it all!

Aw shucks :]

They say that sea otters hold hands when they sleep, 
so they won't drift away from each other.

( spotted @ dirtyprettythings )

Some days it's hard to see beyond the twenty diaper changes,
 the numerous feedings, or over the endless mountians of laundry.
But it's important to remember we're in this together,
and to remember to hold on to each other,
so as to not drift apart.....

Those little creatures have the right idea...

Dear Jake,

I wish I had a camera behind my eyes
so I could capture endless frames of your sweet silly face;
Memories to pull out, to examine and exclaim over, to cherish.
A million tiny little pieces of you,
pieces I'm sure to forget.

I wish I had a tape recorder in my ears
to record your sounds when you sleep, when you laugh, when you dream;
Something to listen to later on, when these sounds have faded away.
 A copy of your baby voice, 
before all of our real words drown it out.

I wish I could bottle the smell of your baby-fine hair after your bath,
and your baby milk breath, warm on my neck.
Forever feel the weight of you asleep on my shoulder,
and always see your eyes shine bright and clear as a winter night's sky. 

I wish I could forever capture all of your intoxicating baby-ness,
to have for later, when I will miss it dearly.
I hope I will remember your tiny ways when you are big and strong....

Love, Mom
