Journey to motherhood

Well, here I am on the cusp of motherhood. I am sitting at my desk at work, counting down my last few minutes of paid employment. Last night I started folding onsies and thinking about the shower that my girlfriend will be holding for me.


I love prowling the internet for scrapbooking ideas and layouts. I love how each person brings their own creative flair to a page. Right now I am experimenting with with different techniques.

Last week of work

I don't really have anything particularly interesting to write this evening, but I would like to blog nevertheless. I have one more week left before I go on maternity leave and I am looking forward to some rest before my baby arrives. This weekend I got a lot of sleep and I feel fantastic as a result, but I know that by the end of this work week I am going to feel exhausted again. I am really looking forward to having some special time with my husband before our lives are thrown into a tailspin. My husband has been taking such wonderful care of me these past few weeks while and I am looking forward to doing some special things for him.

Valentines day is just around the corner and My husband and I usually like to do something memorable but this year I feel like doing something more low key and inexpensive. In the past we have gone on a salsa cruise around the Vancouver harbour, have taken a camel safari in India, and gone out for a fancy five course meal. The most important part of Valentines day is the card.

Spring is in the air

Today my husband announced that spring was in the air. Translation: lots of rain and muck and all things new and glorious. I am so thankful that it is now possible to buy fun adult sized gumboots. I recently purchased a conservative pair in shades of grey and black but I have my eyes on a rainbow pair as well.

On the theme of shopping: I have forbidden myself from buying more clothing, as I seem to grow out of whatever I purchase within a matter of weeks. I have started to borrow/steal my husbands clothing which are still nice and roomy. In the meantime I will continue to salivate over delicious pieces like the beautiful piece in the above photo.

This picture reminds me of my friend Heidi for some reason. I tried to send her the link for it, but being technologically delayed that I am, could not figure how to do it. I'm sure that she will stumble across it in my blog at some point. So why does it remind me of her.... I think its because it reminds of Peice of art she once fell in love with while we are vacationing with our husbands in Hawaii.

Spring Cleaning

I throughly enjoy de-junking rooms and getting rid of excess clutter. On Saterday I started sweeping and organizaing the shoes in my mom's laudrey room and and it morphed into a full blown spring cleaning spree. I vacummed and scrubbed every crevice and threw out two garbage bags full of junk, (with her permission of course. I hope that when I go on maternity leave I will have the energy to dejunk a few more rooms in her house, as she has not been up to the task for awhile. A clean, organized space fills me with such calm and every time I step into the laudrey room I sigh with satisfaction. Am I crazy?
