hello again

Wow, this is my second blog post within the same week! Pretty wild. I came up with a few more random things to put into a "list of things" for you.

- A quiz (I did quite poorly - it's hard!)
- Edwin is booked to donate blood this Tuesday - have you donated recently? (I am not eligible to donate for another 5 years)
- Had lunch at Cosmos Greek restaurant in White Rock yesterday. SO GOOD. Garlicky tsatsiki of my dreams.
- Went to an adorable home goods store in White Rock as well, the Handpicked Home. They also sell some baby things and I bought Gabby some Minimocs. I love buying products made in Canada and from a local store.
- Currently reading: Bringing Up Bebe (only a few chapters in, but like it so far!)
- Are you watching the Amazing Race? We were sad that this couple was eliminated recently! 

Need to go get the baby who just woke up from her nap now :)

Happy long weekend!

two months

It has been just over two months since I dropped by to say hello. Here I am, dropping by again to say hola! Maybe after I have surgery I will blog more as I will be stuck in bed for a bit? We'll see! I think most are aware, but for those who aren't, I have a double mastectomy scheduled for September 18 after a stint with breast cancer. Still a few more steps after that, but glad that things are truckin' along towards the finish line. I debated blogging about the whole thing but I feel like it would be a long post/lot of into/if I really want to remember the not-so-nice things about it all...I'll continue to ponder. Anyways, Edwin & I made a to-do list for the next few weeks pre-surgery to do as a family while I am feeling okay. Pending I continue to feel okay, we will get a few fun family things in before the 18th. Fingers crossed!

If you are reading this, thanks for still reading! Here are a few things I like these days, maybe you will too?!

- What I want to get Gabby for her birthday (can you believe she will be 1 in September??)
- Gabby's fave book right now
- I haven't actually bought any clothing from here, but I love this shirt and may buy it!
- My fave new waffle recipe these days

Thought I had more things to share... but... can't find them! Anywho, hope you have a lovely rest of your August!
