Wow, I had a wonderful Birthday week. Thank you sooooo MUCH for all the birthday wishes. You made me feel extra special this week. It was a busy week so I plan on catching my breath this weekend. I cannot wait to relax a little bit and maybe snuggle in with a good book. Now on to the things that made me happy this week:
This week went by so quickly for us! It was a good one though and I am looking forward to this weekend! My BFF is coming for a visit. She was suppose to come a couple of weeks ago but ended up sick so finally she is on her way and I cannot wait to spend some time with her. Also, it is a long weekend and I am very much looking forward to not having to get up on Monday morning and do the school run! It was a great week and looking like an even better weekend now let’s get on to the Happy!
As you noticed by the title we are switching things up over here a bit. Today I am sharing with you 5 Netflix shows that make me happy!!! We are a little more than obsessed with Netflix over here. I have my shows that I watch alone and Jordan has his and then we have shows we watch together. There are so many great shows but sometimes we just pass them by unsure whether to try them out or not. I mean there is literally so MUCH to choose from! Here we go with 5 shows I have watched recently or am currently watching and enjoying:
As I write this I have my bedroom window open and the perfect warm fall breeze is coming in. It is a beautiful Friday! This week’s happy picks are all fall related I hope you enjoy!
Being a short week, this week flew by. I cannot believe we are nearing the middle of October! Thanksgiving is now in the past and we are now looking forward to the next holiday! Have you picked up your Halloween costumes yet? I picked up the kids’ last month because there is nothing worse than going on the hunt for a certain size a day before Halloween. We are also gearing up for Mr Simon’s birthday. He turns 2 towards the end of the month and we have some major fun planned for him and his bestie who also just turned 2. Lots to look forward to and celebrate ahead; I just love this time of year. Now on with this week’s happy!
It is Turkey Weekend!!! We are a bit busy this weekend between work schedules and meetings so I am making a very simple turkey dinner for just our family. We are busy ALL day Saturday so I plan to put a turkey leg and stuffing in the slow cooker and come home and whip up the sides to go with. Monday will be pj day here we are going to be taking it pretty easy. looking forward to it. Now on to the happy from this week:
I have been suffering with a terrible cough for the past month and I have not slowed down a bit and yes it has caught up with me! So I am taking a breather and have a very slow relaxing weekend planned…did you hear that kids? Someone asked me the other day if I had a respiratory disease so I thought it was time to get to the doctors and get checked out. Okay let’s be even more real: Miss Charlie now has the cough so I am taking her to the doctors and may as well get checked out while I am there too. Not sure if I’d be going if she wasn’t hacking and coughing now too because my Mom needs always come last and well maybe because a night out with the girls, Starbucks, and just about anything sounded more fun than a trip to see the doctor. I am slapping my own hand right now because now I am totally run down. Take a lesson from me guys, take care of yourself it is always WAY worse when you don’t! Now on to all the positive:
On Friday’s around here I usually do my “5 Things that make me Happy” post but today we are doing things a little bit differently. I received my Fabfitfun Box and could not wait til Monday to post about it. So I am posting about it today and sharing my 5 favourite items from the box. I received my first box one year ago! Guys, I love this box subscription before taking the plunge to join I drooled over boxes every season. Now it is like Christmas morning when it arrives. The box was filled with almost $400(us) of stuff! Here are my top 5 picks:
What a FULL week. I am ending this week absolutely exhausted! We started the week with a day trip to visit family which included 5hrs of driving for moi. Miss Charlies started school in the middle of the week, I worked a night shift, and we are ending it with a bang partying it up tonight with one of our favourite families! It was an exciting, busy and exhausting week but we made it! Now it is time to enjoy Miss Charlie’s first weekend off from school! We had a lot of great, happy moments this week that I can’t wait to share with, so here we go:
Oh my goodness this week flew by! I wanted it to go snail slow but each day just seemed to go in quicker. I am so excited/nervous for Miss Charlie to start school next week. I feel like it is my first day of school. My girl is more than ready and we are both going to be just fine. I want school to be a joyful experience for her. I want her to be intellectually challenged in a safe comfortable environment. It was not an easy decision to send her to a private school. Over the summer Jordan and I have put in extra hours of work to pay for it. Looking at her schedule for the year I can already tell it was worth it. I can’t wait to watch this little girl grow this year. Now lets get on with some other happy:
