September 25

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Well it's been a busy busy month but I'm here and I've stayed mostly on track!

August 25 we moved into our new apartment. It was crazy and busy and hectic, packing and unpacking and moving. I love the new place!! It's beautiful and it has a gym in the building!

Here is my new kitchen!!! emoticon

Then my sweet little "baby girl" started school!! She is in grade 5 this year, where does the time go?!?!? It was a wet and rainy morning, and I was carrying her bookbag since it was stuffed full with school supplies and too heavy for her, but she's got a giant umbrella and her lunch bag with her :) and yes, a giant flower in her hair (that kid has a style all her own!)

She turned 10 years old on me in August too! Can hardly believe it! With all the crazyness of moving and vacation we didn't throw her a birthday party really but we took her out for dinner and some of my friends came and got her cards and presents. She is pretty close to my friends so she really enjoyed it :) Here is a picture of us at her birthday supper.

I managed to get a nasty cold the first week we moved in but got over it luckily. Just in time for my birthday celebrations!

My boyfriend bought me an amazing birthday cake and got everyone at the restaurant to sing to me, so sweet! We had dinner with about 10 of my friends, it was a great evening!

Then we went back to my new apartment for a few drinks and fun times. I'm right in the middle here :)

I got so many awesome cards and presents! My friends were so thoughtful! A group of the girls all pitched in and got me a lululemon gift card so I could start "running in style" and my other girlfriends and guy friends pitched in a made an awesome basket with wine and flowers and chocolate and a gift card to dinner/movie and a homemade babysitting coupon so me and my boyfriend can go out :) Aren't they the sweetest??

Things have finally settled down a bit, lol. My boyfriend took of on vacation to Europe on September 14th and won't be back until Oct. 3! I sure do miss him and realize just how much he does for me and for my daughter. It's hard to fit in exercise without him around to watch her but I've been managing. I just go up to the gym in the building in the early hours of the morning while she is still asleep. I take my cell phone and leave a note so she can call me if she wakes up and needs me and I'm just upstairs. She is 10 now so I think that is okay. It's working for me.

I've managed to get another cold already! I think the start of school and spread of germs is just hitting the entire city of Halifax!

Anyways that is all that is new around here.

    I hate saying this, but we are currently building a house (my parents are, which I still live with) and the house is in Central Texas...and you're kitchen is still better!!!!

    I tell you, having a decent kitchen is one of the main reasons why we wanted a house, plus tired of throwing our money down the rent drain and having them raise it every year! But if we had a kitchen like that, I think we wouldn't care!!

    Enjoy it!!!

    Have a great week!!! And by the way, your daughter is beautiful!

    You are especially loved! And your apartment is CRAAAZZYY! It looks like something you would see on some tv show about divas living in the city. The cake made me drool. Your life is great; you should be really proud.
