Home Sweet Home Friday

Another week just zoomed on by! Just like another snow storm is about to zoom on in!! I'm soo over winter, and I know we have like 2/3 more months to go! Yuck!

This week was a busy one, as we had M's drainage conference. It was his last year on the board of directors for the land improvement contractors for Ontario (LICO). 

So after our long day of appointments on Tuesday (update coming next Tuesday, but so far so good), we checked in to our hotel and M was off to his first meeting. I got ready for dinner in the meantime. We had dinner at the Keg with the board and then M and I relaxed back in the hotel room afterwards. 

Wednesday I took part in the ladies program, while M had a day of meetings and seminars. They had an interior designer come in Sarah St. Amand come in and talk about the latest trends and tips and and tricks for design in our homes, how to achieve high end looks for less, etc. It was great! After that was laughter yoga - which was a bit of a flop as far as I was concerned. We had lunch afterwards and then the spa services started. I opted to have my hair done! The lady did a great job! When I was finished I heard back to my room to try to grab a cat nap sitting up (because I didn't want to wreck my hair). I ended up laying carefully without damaging my hair. Unfortunately, I awoke to the worst Charlie horse, infact I still have it today. I've tried heat, cold, walking, stretching, you name it and it won't release. 

Wednesday night we had a formal banquet to attend (at the head table nonetheless with me gimping along). M and I got all dressed up.

I felt large and incharge, despite M loving the dress and getting compliments, I was not overly confident in it! But it was one night and I didn't have many other choices. It was a long night on my feet. After dinner they did a casino night (a group comes in sets up various tables and you can gamble with fake money that you then trade in for raffle tickets at the end of the night for prizes). It was a lot of fun, but by the end of the night I was done. 

Thursday M had a tour and meetings to attend, so his Mom and I packed up and headed home, while his Dad stayed with M. We hit up lowes on the way home and bought the bathroom flooring. They didn't have the exact floor I wanted in stock, so I went with something a touch different. But I do love it!  Now we just need to pick a paint color and gut it! 

When he got home we just went to the restaurant here in the village for wing night. It felt soo nice to sleep in my own bed last night. Baby must have been happy too, because I only woke up once for a bathroom break. 

Unfortunately while we were gone, we missed Miss Lily's birthday!! Hard to believe she is 6!!! Wasn't she just a pup yesterday?? 

Can't wait to see her with the sweet baby though!! 

Let's talk about a winner for the custom onsie giveaway shall we?? Nicole from Haute Runner is the lucky winner!! Congrats Nicole! I will be in contact with you regarding this soon!!

The recliner comes in for the nursery today!! Soo excited!! Now we can determine the furniture layout because have all the pieces now! Oh and we hang stuff on the walls after that, all the while M will be renovating the bathroom!! Fun times ahead!!

This weekend aside from the nasty weather, we have Brandon's 2nd birthday and then the bathroom is being gutted!

You rocked that dress, girl! Pregnant and all!

Kristin said...

Love that dress! You looked amazing - though I TOTALLY understand feeling just big and preggo no matter how cute you actually look. Happy Birthday to your pup!:)

Rebekah said...

I think you look great! Hopefully your leg starts to feel better. When I was pregnant I had a charlie horse that hurt for a week afterward!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

Sounds like a great conference! Very jam packed though. You looked so pretty in that dress! Love the colour and the one shoulder.

That Charlie horse sounds awful. I'm not sure I've ever actually had one.

Sounds like a big weekend ahead of you. Maybe it's a good thing the storm is coming in so you can get everything done inside.

YAY!! I'm so excited!! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! Off to do some shopping! :)

Murdock's mama said...
