Gosh, I've been a pretty lazy blogger for the past few weeks. Not sure why, other than a bit of travel, and then this heat wave sapping all of my energy. So what's new and exciting 'round here?
1) A few weeks ago, I took a weekend trip to visit my best friend in Ottawa. We were joined by another old friend, and spent a few days just being girly: Mani/pedi, shopping, eating, cooking. It was great fun and so relaxing. My best friend is due with her first baby in November, so we know that our relationship will change somewhat, and it was nice to have some time together enjoying the friendship as it is. I'm having a hard time with being hours away and not being able to see the baby right away, especially since we used to live on the same street. It's just one of the many changes since marriage that take some getting used to, but it still makes me tear up a little.
2) Last week we had a crazy storm that knocked out our power for hours. There was even flooding downtown. Yikes! Thankfully our family were all safe and sound.
3) Gil and I had our very first date four years ago today. We went for Thai food. Who would have thought that would go down in (personal) history. Married friends, do you still celebrate dating anniversaries? I kind of like to acknowledge it, even though we won't do gifts or anything.
4) Royal Baby watch is ongoing! I am not one of those crazy royal fans, but I do kind of follow Will and Kate, and I actually saw them in Charlottetown, PEI, two years ago. (Okay, I could barely see anything, but I definitely heard Prince William's voice life). My grandma was always a big fan of the Queen, so I love imagining how excited she would be to hear about the Royal Baby.
5) We're counting down to our Newfoundland vacation: 6 more sleeps!
