Ok, on to the randoms...
~ I'm going to see Janet Jackson in concert in September! My friend asked me if I wanted to go and I figured it would be a fun girls night! I haven't listened to her in ages- I'll have to dig up my CD!
~ Note to self- don't buy clothes for work right after having a baby, while on mat leave. Chances are they won't fit when you need to wear them (too big!) so that was a waste of money. I've had to get rid of some brand new tags still on clothes for this reason...
This dress would have been great for Stampede... if it fit.
I've become really picky in what I buy these days. If I have the least bit of hesitation, it doesn't come home with me anymore.
Some recent 'looks':
Can I get this dress in every colour and pattern please? So comfy!
I have a secret- this dress is huge on me but a blazer makes it wearable. I think it would be worth getting tailored, if I ever find the time to see one.
Canadian Tuxedo for Stampede! Normally I'm against this look but there is enough contrast between the denim shades that it works.
Another Stampede look- jean jacket and white dress.
~ I've been doing some purging and selling things on Kijiji and Buy/Sell groups. I kind of want to get rid of everything now! I like having less junk and more money in my pockets! So I can buy more clothes and junk... No, I'm done with junk. Travel money!!
~ We booked our trip to Phoenix in the fall. Since Audrey's passport expired this month I took her to get her passport photo done so we can renew it. What a joke! She was somewhat cooperative but mostly the photographer could not get the lighting figured out, either too bright or too dark so the background was no longer white. And you can bet Leo didn't sit patiently for 45 minutes during this whole ordeal. Hubby has been delegated the job now.
~ I know this is going to come as a huge surprise, but I'm having photo technical difficulties again, which is partially to explain why I haven't been blogging much (I wanted to post this yesterday...). I'm so ready to throw Photos into the garbage. Now Google+ isn't backing up my photos because apparently some other app is (?? probably iCloud/Photos situation) so to add photos when blogging I have to do it on my phone, then resize them on the computer. So pretty much it takes 3x as long to blog. Why must technology change so much and make a mess of everything? There must be a better way to back up your photos and still have them be accessible. If anyone has any suggestions, shoot them my way please! Can I hire an Apple expert to come to my house? I pay in wine.
~ So back to solo-parenting... it was tough- like grocery store meltdowns, sibling fights and many tears but we had some great moments!
This girl needs to work on her selfie game! I kind of adore this pout though!
We went for a walk/bike ride one afternoon and audrey insisted on 'off-roading'.
It was fun until she tipped over, Dolly went flying (she needs a seatbelt!) and she couldn't get her bike up. She got her adventurousness from her father!!
And yes, those are socks with sandals... Pick your battles, especially when solo-parenting!
We spent a lot of time at the park.
Someone loves the park now that he can walk and explore it! His shirt says it all!! AWESOME!!
Impressive that we got a photo with all of us smiling!!
Kids made me breakfast one morning...
~ I just remembered- I'm going to the spa on Saturday! I'm finally using my gift certificate from Christmas and figured some pampering in between 2 rounds of solo-parenting will be much needed! So excited- my poor feet need some attention!
How was your weekend? What are your tips for surviving solo-parenting?
