Trevor was gone working for his mom and I thought it would be fun to make a trip over to check out the show, visit Trev and surpriseGrammie and Auntie.
We managed to pull of a great surprise and although it was a very early morning and a very long day, it was so worth it and I had such a great day shopping with Auntie Megan.
We were at the show for four hours and Denay spent the whole time at the booth, mostly eating pudding and "helping" daddy stock the freezer.
I worked four shows last year and being there definitely made me wish I could have been able to work this year. Some of the ideas and products that people were showing just blew my mind.....and my tummy :)
A few weeks ago, three very special friends of mine threw a lovely shower for Paisley and I. We played some super fun games (sculpting babies from play-doh was my favourite), Paisley got a gorgeous diaper cake, lovingly made by my dear Kerry and the girls got me a gift certificate for a 45 minute massage (booked for Tuesday and I can't WAIT).
Paisley was snuggled many times over.....
And we snacked on the always oh-so-yummy Cake By Alana.
Thank you SO much Kerry, Natalie and Megan for the perfect shower and for blessing Paisley and I, and to all the ladies who came loved on us!
NOTE: My catching-up post are going to come very unorganized and scattered....bear with me :)
The first weekend of December, Trev and I kissed our princesses goodbye and headed up to Parksville for his yearly, all-island-stores staff party at the Tigh-Na-Mara.
Since we arrived with a few hours to spare before heading to dinner, we decided to take a dip in their renown mineral pool that is apparently supposed to detoxify your body. We stayed for a good hour, switching between the pool and hot tub until we were well cooked. I enjoyed a super hot and quiet shower under a rainfall shower head and we still had time to relax in our room before getting ready.
The party, was a PARTY. After a great dinner, they moved onto some presentations and prize draws (that I missed because I was in the room pumping.....oh, the joys) and then onto dancing. We managed to make off with a bread maker (which is, as I type, mixing dough for homemade cinnamon buns for Christmas morning)
And did we DANCE. Pretty sure we partied like it was 1999.....or 1989.....who cares, it was fun.
