Ramblings and a Road Trip

...I'm going to try to sneak in one last post for the month of October and bring my grand total of posting this month up to...THREE! Whoa! Let's not over do it now!


I really just don't know where the time has gone!

I say that a lot lately....I must be getting old, because the days fly by so terribly fast!

But anyways.

Well, I did finally get in for an ultrasound and it appears that this little one is due May 12.  Just four days after our tenth wedding anniversary!

So much for big plans on going anywhere.


But it's all good - we'll aim for our 11th to get away....I hope!

And, well yes; we could still manage to squeeze in a holiday - since we were not actually planning on flying anywhere (because I'm slightly, just ever so, deathly afraid to fly, just a tad...) but we also want to have hubby take some time off, (read, parental leave again, yay!) after baby is born and that will affect the budget greatly!   And so the idea of going away for a vacation, a few weeks prior to him being off work, might not be the wisest idea.

So, as I have hit the 12 week mark now - I am actually starting to feel myself again.  I'm still battling the mid afternoon and evening tiredness but it's getting much better.  My creative juices seem to be flowing again, be it a bit slow going but I think there is hope that my energy and thus creative self will return to normal.

This is all good timing too because my BFF and I are escaping for the weekend!  That's two nights and three whole days away from our lovely men folk and darling littles!  We are heading to the Woman of Grace conference - exciting!!

And this should be one heck of a 6 hour road trip!

I'm super stoked because it will be such a good opportunity to grow, worship, re-connect with God and have some serious girl time - plus a big ol' ROAD TRIP!

Because we all know how much I love road trips!!!


But it will also be weird because hubby and I are never apart!  We sat down and thought about it and it was tough to recall if we have been apart at all since our second child was born!  And we figured it was only twice, both times for only one night, that we spent apart since being married!

I know that's not how everyone rolls but it's how we do!  We just like to be together and well, there's never been much need to not be.  So this will be different but lots o' fun as well!  Just pray for him, alone, with three kiddos, okay! ;)  (I'm kidding - he is an amazing daddy and I know everything will just great while I'm gone!)

Are you enjoying my fall-tastic photos....well...they really are not so fall-tastic - I have not been too motivated to pull out the camera as of late and so I didn't really capture much of our beautiful autumn weather here.  But here are a few shots to delight your eyes with - not in regards to my photography skill but in complete admiration of the wonder, beauty and creativity of the Master Himself!

And so here you have another rambly post....but many of you seem to enjoy these...which is good - because well...that's me!  Rambly goodness!  Though with coffee in hand would be much nicer but we can use our imaginations now can't we!?
Not that I've been drinking much coffee as of late - pregnancy will do that to me. 

And so I have to pack my bag...after I dig it out of our third floor junk loft!  Big plans on that front...okay not big...but with the help of my BFF we have decided how to best use that space and hubby and I are now motivated to get to work on cleaning it out - but I'll keep that all for another time....probably a much, much later time.
Because, let's be honest.  I barely seem to have time to blog, let a lone start another project!  I have somethings I need to get organized before Christmas - because people, it's less then two months away!!!  (Sorry all you American readers - I know you haven't even had your Thanksgiving yet but I'm ITCHING for the Christmas season!!!)
But I'm excited about that space none the less!
And so, I have to pack, clean, do some baking, maybe some last minute shopping (my shoes have split right down the soul *sob*)  and whatever else time will allow for.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will share all about our little adventure when I get back! 


  1. Oh, so good to read #3. Third time's (of posting) a charm!! thank you for hanging in there. I was starting to worry about you..

    I'm so glad you're going to get to go away for a few with a friend. Women of Grace is the name of our women's ministry - at our church. Too funny! So - of course, I had to read up on it. It sounds like you'll have such a blessed time. I hope you do.

    Your photos are gorgeous as usual. I especially love the scattered leaves one.
    I got both of your comments on my Giveaway... yay!! And yes! I'll continue to be praying for your neighbor. That has got to be so hard..

    I'll/we'll be thinking of Dave with the kiddo's while you're away... too! Speaking of Dave. Does he have to take so much time off of work for the paternity leave? I mean, is that a requirement? is is paid time off? I don't know too much about Canada's stuff like that - is why I ask.

    1. Thank you Bevy!! You are always too sweet!! ;) :D Thank you for your continued prayers for my neighbour, that means A LOT to me! ♥ As for the paternity leave - it's only a requirement from ME! ;) lol!! No, he doesn't have to take any time off and it is a partially paid leave. I'll shoot you an email to give you all the details - it really is a good thing - but a focused budget thing! ;)

  2. Gorgeous photos. Annnd, I totally understand about the blogging thing. Live happens, you know? And it's a good thing. :)


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
