our sweet girl

Today our little onion is visiting the dentist to have a tooth extracted. It was one of the one's she was born with so it's been exposed literally since birth and has finally reached it's limit. Luckily it was starting to get loose so this is just helping it along. She's putting on such a brave face and yet is super excited for the tooth fairy's first visit.
This puts a new meaning to the saying "so sweet you get a toothache."
yuk yuk
I'm trying to use humour in a non humorous situation since I'll most likely end up on the floor. I don't handle the sight of blood too well. I get faint and dizzy and nauseous. I'm wondering if the dentist will give me a hit of the laughing gas...ya'think?

I'm getting antsy....and a little sleepy

How can I not get excited for my trip while my sister keeps posting videos like this?
Dont' forget to turn off the music ==> ==>

Or this?

fast forward until about 1:16....wait for it....wait for it.....*poot*

I can't stop laughing but that might have something to do with the fact that it's late and I'm tired and when I'm tired I giggle. A lot. At everything. It's true what they say,
"Laughter is the best medicine."
Good night everyone, or should I say good morning?

bento's back

I've taken a little break from making bentos mainly because I got so busy that I would forget to make lunches. I know, bad mom award goes to me. again....but I'm back and why not surprise my little onion with a little bento love, right?

So today's lunch and snack included applesauce with some fun sprinkles, vitamin gummies, star burst fruit leathers, turkey rolls, grapes, Sponge Bob crackers and dinosaur shaped pb&j sandwiches.

I've noticed I'm a little rusty so I'll be checking out some bento blogs for some inspiration. *sigh* Those mom's seem to have it all together. Someday I'll be like that, just right after I rewash the load I keep forgetting in the washer....

only a fortnight away

...until I get to snuggle this little cute patootie only this time I'm not going alone. EEP!
That's right! Both Miss Maribel and my adorable southern mother in law are coming with me this trip and right now it's hard to tell who's more excited, haha. Just two more weeks, 14 sleeps, a whole entire fortnight how ever you count it let the count down begin!

I'm just hoping that the snow will be melted and it warms up a bit so we can enjoy the Alberta scenery and let's be honest here, so I don't freeze! I'm such a wuss now...

welcome spring

It's nice that spring is finally here with warmer temps and happy anticipation of things renewed. Maribel is loving playing outside everyday exploring the great outdoors. We recently picked up a butterfly net after seeing several butterflies flutter about but so far the only thing she's cought in it are twigs and her head. Best dollar I've spent. *wink*

So far March has come in like a lion for me but sadly....I think it ate the lamb.... 
Happy Spring!

family date

If you ever are in the Orlando area this should be one of the first stops you make (if you haven't already.) It's delicious and full of choices and oh so perfect for a hot Florida day!
It's also the family favourite and made for the perfect family date. Now if only the trees would stop pouring their pollen all over everything I would be even happier. I've never had allergies before moving here and now....the trees have it out for me. Big time.
*ahh choo*
According to Maribel I have the "bless you's."

shreddies does a body good

Looking at this in the mornings feels so....right!

I was super duper lucky this passed week to have a close cousin come down for a visit which explains my absense here. We had so much fun playing tourist and revisiting all the fun-ness that Orlando has to offer. Sometimes I forget what's around until someone comes to visit then I have just as much fun as they do and forget that I live here but then I also get a little homesick when we start talking Canada talk. 

She spoiled me rotten with some treats from "back home." When she pulled out these bad boys I squealed with joy!!! I may have done a happy dance or two... 
I have always liked my Shreddies with fresh bananas and lots of sugar! See the sugar? *drool* As a kid I loved drinking the sweet milk the sugar would make after each tender morsel has been consumed. I think I need to invest in one of those bowls with the built in straw. *wink* *wink* Hey, someone has to teach Maribel how to eat Shreddies the proper way. Why shouldn't it be me?

procrastinators unite...tomorrow

*psst* Wanna know something about me? I'm a procrastinator. I know. Hard to believe right?

 You know when you see a bumper sticker or t-shirt or something of those lines and you say to yourself, “That’s so me.” Well that was me when I saw this shirt. I have said before that “procrastination is my middle name”…

I have a long list of things I need to do before my cousin comes down to visit...she's coming in two days. It's a good thing I have that shirt to live up to or that would make me a liar.
Happy Friday Eve!
