I have to admit, I'm procrastinating a little bit. It's one of those mornings (weeks... months...) where I have so much to do, I don't know where to start, so I'm taking a moment to blog!
I had my first big magazine feature. My Cabin Fever knickers were featured in the August issue of Elle Canada, which was super amazing! It's just a small little blurb, but it's still very exciting. It's been a dream of mine to see my brand in a fashion magazine. A big thank you to Elle Canada for reaching out to Canadian Brands.
While Dan was off work the other week, he finished painting the baby's room and assembled all of our new furniture. Yesterday I went to my cousin's place to go through some of her old baby stuff. I came home with a car-load of clothes, rockers, toys, etc., etc.. I'm trying not to accumulate too much stuff. I have no idea what we will need. I've been trying to ask parents what they couldn't live without when they had small children, and have been trying to get some of those things... I feel pretty clueless, when it comes to what I need. I actually had to ask what receiving blankets are for... I figure it's ok to be a clueless mom-to-be, as long as I'm not afraid to ask!
I still have lots of baby-crafting to do. I've made about a dozen cloth diapers, but need to get more flannel. I also need to make curtains and a few other odds and ends. It's nice being able to slowly work at putting together the baby's room... I'm getting excited to finally see the baby in it!
We got our first "harvest" this year from our vegetable garden - about a cup of beans. I've tried growing tomatos and cucumbers in my garden previously, but never had much success with them. This year we put in a raised, square foot garden and it is doing incredible! We will have cucumbers and tomatos soon... and potatos, carrots, letuce, peas, more beans, onions... All from a 4'x4' garden! Oliver is stunned at how fast it's grown - look at that face!
We had a pretty busy, but very fun weekend. On Saturday, we went out bowling with friends. I am a terrible bowler... Dan, on the otherhand, is actually pretty good. I did manage to get two strikes! Then, on Sunday my best friend, Abbey and her boyfriend came up to visit for the day. We bbq'd, went out for coffee, and walked along the waterfront. It was nice to have a weekend with very little work... Though feel pretty exhausted now!
