The sun is out! FINALLY! Yesterday it snowed for a strange few minutes, but today, it's sunny! Already we have gone for a walk, played at the park, bought some gluten free bread and buns at the g bakery, and now Zoey is having a nap! All before 11:15 am!

I don't have much else to say... I know lots has been going on lately in the world, and I am very thankful that my family is safe, that my sister and brother and law didn't go to Boston this year, that I am healthy so far in this pregnancy, and that I have a hilarious daughter who is learning new things every day.

What have you done to enjoy the weather?

Three Things Thursday

Two for two TTT! I'm on a roll!

1. I did NOT get that chair. And I don't even want to talk about it. I'm that disappointed.

2. I just ate a gluten free bagel that was so delicious that I had to double check the package to make sure I didn't buy regular bagels. It's Glutino's multigrain bagel, and man it's good! I used to not be the biggest glutino fan, but their english muffins are delish and now I'm a bagel convert. (After looking at the website, neither product that I love is on there... Strange)

3. It snowed again today. Oye vey.

And since it's also Throwback Thursday, I'll leave you with a picture from my first solo excursion with Zoey. How the times have changed! Today I had to convince her to come out of the elevator for two minutes while I held two extremely heavy bags of groceries.

Three Things Thursday

My first Three Things Thursday! (I think...)

1. I am obsessed with getting this chair for Zoey. She is so over her lobster chair and I've been coveting the ridiculously expensive stokke chair for years. They are hard to find on kijiji and when they are there, they are still really expensive. Yesterday morning, one popped up for $50!! That's a good $100 less than most used ones, so I emailed the seller (twice) in hopes for a response. The chair in conveniently located in High River, where Matt works (and where most other Calgary shoppers don't live) so I hoped I'd be a shoo-in. Well fast forward to today when I FINALLY got a response which basically said "how high are you willing to go" since they got so many responses. The only thing keeping me from offering $125 is that it's disassembled, so there's no way to truly verify that all pieces are there. I wrote a response that showed my extreme interest, reminded her of quick pickup, but that also wasn't just a blank cheque, and I'm dying to hear back. The suspense is KILLING ME!

2. We had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday which was actually our first one this pregnancy. We got confirmation that there was only one baby, and that it has all the normal limbs and organs. They don't give much more info than that (other than the sex, which we opted not to find out), so I guess I'll find out at my midwife appointment next week if there is anything concerning.

3. I think my heartburn has returned. When I was pregnant with Zoey I had awful heartburn for the whole second half of the pregnancy, and wouldn't you know, at 20 weeks and one day, I started to feel the slow burn again this time. I guess I'll be walking around with a bottle of Gaviscon in my purse. I feel like Elaine's co-worker from Seinfeld who walked around with tic tacs in their pocket and drove everyone nuts. That's me but with heartburn relief! Oye.
