After the week I've had, let's lighten up the mood a bit on here…here's my five on friday for this week…
one} I ordered a laser background for both of the kids' school pictures. Katelyn actually chose it and I liked it so decided to keep Andrew's the same. Andrew's school pics haven't come back yet, but K's look awesome!!
two} I think I've narrowed down our trip…we would likely do Disneyland, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. I'm basing this on the responses I got to my call out for help with deciding on where we should go. I'm also basing it a little bit on Becky's pictures on IG of her current trip to the above mentioned places.
three} I'm almost ready for Christmas (with regards to the kids anyways). I've bought quite a bit off Amazon and only need to pick up a few stocking stuffers from local stores. I still have to do all the shopping for Mike (Joel gets movies off Amazon)…one quick trip to Canadian Tire will take care of most of that!
four} We decorated for Christmas last weekend. I know it may seem early to some, but we couldn't wait! I love the glow of the Christmas tree in the evenings and in the early morning hours. The Elf won't make a stop by here until December 1st, although he did make one quick trip to welcome the kids to the holiday season :)
five} After more than ten years of buying clothes exclusively from Penningtons, I finally fit into something from Old Navy (granted it was still their plus size line but who gives a shit?). I bought Miss K's Christmas dress and boots from Old Navy and wanted a sweater for Andrew that matched her dress. I ended up finding a loose cardigan for myself in the same colour. I wasn't sure if it was going to fit, but Old Navy has free return shipping so I figured, "Why not?". It showed up yesterday and, lo and behold, it fit! I have lost twenty pounds over the last two months so I think that plays into fitting into the Old Navy clothes!
And so it goes...
