Random Thoughts on a Thursday Afternoon

We've started booking our 10th anniversary trip. France and Belgium. Yay! I've been wanting to go for years. 5 years ago we were booking our last pre-baby trip. I wanted to go to France, Hubs wanted to go to the Carribbean. We compromised with St. Martin/St. Maarten. Probably best anyway, I would have gone crazy in France...

7 months pregnant + all that wine not being consumed = 1 unhappy me.

So, now we are going, sans children. So far we've booked our first 6 nights. 5 in Paris, 1 in Mont St. Michel. Then back east through Normandy and into Belgium we will head. Bayeux, Juno Beach, Rouen, Lille, Vimy...so many things to see.


It's review time at work. I dislike filling out those forms. I'm always chastised for not seeing my strengths, which stems from a fear of sounding like I am in love with myself. So, this year I tried to at least make it fun for my supervisor to read.


My typing is atrocious today. I don't know what my issue is. And Blogger keeps messing with my font and layout. Grrr...


It seems spring has finally arrived to our corner of the world. I'm always hesitant to declare that before the May long weekend, but I am eager to work on our landscaping. A new shrub, some new herbs, some potted flowers. We just had the lawn aerated this week. The boys have spent the better part of the week trying to avoid all the little dirt pellets that resulted from that. Ah, they take after their mother.


My little project is just about done (close to 6 years after I started it!) I'll post a picture before I take it in for framing. Still not sure where it's home will be, it's not really my style. It had started out as a gift for my niece, but she's definitely grown out of it now.


Hubs and I had the pleasure of a weekend away in Victoria, B.C. a little while ago. I was there for a conference and he joined me afterwards. It had been over 5 years since we'd been there. We used to go at least once a year. It was so nice to walk around, relax, enjoy each other's company. And the accomodations weren't too shabby either. Next year hopefully we can take the boys for a holiday and introduce them to a city we love and all it has to offer.


Hubs turned 35 this week! He says it's a big number. I can't really comment, being a year away from that. But it does seems like a big number. Big enough that I now have this urge to create a list of things to accomplish before I'm 35. It will have to be a short list. I've only got 10 months.


We cleaned out our closet this week. Donated 2 bins, 3 diaper boxes and 1 large bag full of clothes and shoes.

Hasn't this weather been amazing! I have gone through all the boys clothes and taken out the summer stuff...now it's gonna snow right?

Sounds like an amazing 10 year anniversary trip! I'll have to wait 2 more years...

Oh the trip sounds great! We stayed home for a staycation for our 10 year but are off to Vegas this year to celebrate Hubby's 40th. Gulp.

Loving spring and knowing SK, enjoying this beautiful weather while we can because it may not last!
