10 Randoms

10 Things I've done in July.


1. Sometimes I forget that people read my blog. Sometimes it just feels like a diary to me. And then my friend Tasha will drop a subtle hint that I need to update it. I'm trying to beat her to that hint this time! So the #1 thing on this list is update my blog.

2. Celebrated being Canadian on July 1st. We went to the fireworks at Seaman stadium. Miles had a blast running around like a maniac.


2. I finally got around to listing some stuff on Kijiji. I sold the second Cricut that I've had sitting around, never once used... I sold the old stroller & some shelves from the store. It feels good to cleanse.

3. With my "Kijiji Money" I'm headed to Ikea to buy the cupboard doors for my Billy Bookcases. That way, you wont be able to see all of the scrapbooking junk that I have piled in them. I really miss having my own scrapbook room... Our house just looks so messy with all of my "gear" in the corner of the living room. *Sigh.


4. Teaching Miles new words, trying to get him to brush his teeth (he was so good once, but now just likes to suck the toothpaste off), playing with Trains & hitting up the spray park at least once a week. That kid keeps me running...

5. Scrapbooking.

6. Sorting through clothes. It's unbelievable how fast these kids go through them. I have to keep on top of it or Brian will come out of Molly's room & say something like "These shorts are really tight on her..." and lo & behold, they are pants that are too small...

7. Reading. I've polished off 3 books so far this month. I just finished A Year Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs & now I am reading Freakamonics (which so far, I LOVE).
8. Our friend Sarah's mom passed away. She was the same age as my mom. And it got me thinking... It sounds cliche but life is short. So short. For Deb it was too short & my heart is breaking for Sarah. I hope she can be strong. I will be praying for her.
9. I am busy enjoying Molly who is growing at a break-neck pace. She is a chubby, smiley little girl & I just love her more everyday. I will admit I have been mostly dressing her in Miles' hand-me-downs so I am committed to going shopping for all things "girly" come fall. It should be fun to play dress-up with her. (Look at this adorable jumper my friend Teresa got her. So cute.)

10. A friend of mine just eloped. I am green with envy. I wanted to do that, but I also wanted to have the party everyone was expecting. I had a great time at my wedding, but eloping is just so romantic when it's planned & kept as a secret between few. Color me green. Oh, and congrats Lori & Taygen!

I love Molly's chubby face and round head!!!

And I WAS just going to say I have been blog deprived.

Also, HOW do you have time to scrapbook? I have zero time for anything. And I only have one kid!

Sorry to hear about your friend's Mom :(
