Friday Link ups!

Happy Sunday/Monday!!!

I hope everyone had a great wknd! I worked all wknd (though I did take Friday off as a lieu day..yay!), so I am rather tired, but happy that I just have one more day of work, then I get a day off. Yay!!

Here are the five faves of this wk:

1) Gift Cards

Hubby's sister gave us our Christmas gift early: 4 GC's! One for Starbucks, one to The Bay (A Canadian department store), and one to Cineplex, $25 each, and a Visa GC for $50. We are stoked!!!

2) Time With H.

I spent a little over 48 hours with H this past wk. His mommy was away for a few days, and she had asked me awhile back if I would mind looking after him while my brother was at work. We had a such a fun time. He really is a ham, and yes, I had SUCH FUN spoiling him!!!

3) My Fairy God-Mother

AKA: My aunt who wants to clean up our house. I am not sure on how to put this, but I am not the cleanest housekeeper around (well, I used to be...then I got top it off with my working, and hub…

Friday Things/TToT

Happy Saturday, Friends!!!

Hope everyone had a good week. My week started out not great, but then it got better. Oh wait, that was last week. This week has gone pretty well. Work is going is going well, and everything is awesome. Isn't that what everyone loves and wants to hear? Ha! Actually, it as gone pretty well. Nothing too exciting, but nothing horrible, either, so that's good.

Here are my five for this week:

1) All things Christmas!

I thought that my parents had ALL of our Christmas stuff, and it turns out, that we had a couple of boxes....some of the decorations, and ALL of my movies and, yay! I also bought some Cutie oranges yesterday-I was looking for some Mandarin oranges, but I couldn't find any-, and I am drinking my Christmas "coffee" out of our Christmas mugs. I also found and brought out my sweaters, and my winter/Christmas PJ's. I have already started listening to Christmas music from my own CD/TV/YouTube, and I have watched HA2, and…

Guest Post Swap, Anyone?

So, I am just throwing this out there...would anyone want to do a guest post swap with me? Is this a thing? Do people pay to do one? I would love a little more traffic to/on my blog, AND I would like to talk on someone else's blog about infertility. anyone interested? I have seen this on other blogs, and I thought it would be a fun thing to do! I think it's fun to see/read other people's guest posts on other people's blogs. It's neat to see who other bloggers love to follow, and why they think these people are cool.

Yes, I realize that this is all this post contains....but I am too tired to write a longer post right now. I might combine this with another post later this wknd.


Thought you saw a few posts of mine in your blog news feed, went to click on them, and they weren't there? Well, that's b/c I deleted them. I just am trying to be a bit more careful on what I blog about/share on social media. I will still blog (duh!), but I will keep it to just my/our personal life/infertility, and, well, that's all. Ha!

This post is going to be random, cause, I feel like it.

*The attacks in Pars (and Beirut, and Kenya-last April-, and Turkey) were horrifying. I think the end days are near, people.

*Two wknds ago, I dog-sat our friends Beagle. Oh my goodness...he is just the cutest thing ever! I had fun just relaxing, watching movies, and drinking wine.

*Tim Horton's has their Christmas cups back. I heart them.

*My grandma nearly died a couple of weeks ago, from appendicitis (again!), but she is better now.

*I had a date with a little dude the other day. He took me out for coffee, but I had to pick him up! Darn men that don't drive!!! We had a fun …

Five (and Maybe a few More) on Friday!

 ****Edited November 10/15

-1: Red Cups/Christmas Drinks:

Y'all...I should have known to put this in over the wknd! Red Cups AND Christmas drinks have arrived EVERYWHERE...and not just at Starbucks...McDonald's has Red Cups this year, as I am sure that other places have (or will have) them. I love the Eggnog Latte!!

 I think this was a Peppermint Mocha.

So, last Thursday, I met up with a friend for coffee, and I only had a few bucks to my name...and I asked them what the cheapest drink was, and they said a Chai Tea Latte. I didn't think I was going to like it, but I actually did. So good!!

-1.5: Egg Nog:
Again, I forgot to put this up/on awhile back, but Egg Nog is back!!

1: Groceries/Time with Mom:

Mom came through on her way to catch a flight to Calgary (Kamloops is the nearest airport to/from a lot of places around here...or else you go to Vancouver, Kelowna, or Cranbrook), on Wednesday, so she stayed over night (thus, making me clean up our place..will post pictures soon).…

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month (A few days late)

I was hoping to post a bit about Pregnancy and Infant Loss last month (I actually found out that October is designated to that half way through), but i just kept forgetting. Oh well, better late than never, right?

So, October was designated PL&IL month. I guess that Oct 15 was the designated day. Canada's Infertility Week is in May. Anyway, I wanted to do a short blog about it, since I follow a few ladies who have lost babies; whether it be through miscarriage, stillbirth, or have died shortly after. My mom is also one who has suffered pregnancy loss. She had 7 or 8 miscarriages (this also means that I have 7 or 8 siblings in heaven..yay! I hope I have at least another sister waiting for me up My cousin also lost a baby this spring. I have never suffered a pregnancy and/or an infant loss (that I know of), but like I said, I have several family members, and friends who have. It is heartbreaking, and it isn't "just a miscarriage" (or "just a still…

The One Question I Hate/Let's Be Friends Blog Hop

I have also decided to link up Tiffany over at The Dwelling Tree for this wk's LBFBH.

Since before becoming infertile, and even a bit since then, I would often ask if a couple are going to have kids...or, I will ask if they (particularly the woman) if they have kids. I never really saw that as intrusive, especially if I asked it a certain way, and yes, I still will ask people if they have (or are going to have) kids. But, in the last couple years, I have actually grown to hate that question. When someone asks "do you have kids", I actually become uncomfortable. I don't know what to say. I sometimes say "no", or sometimes I will give them the whole (or part of) story. I will sometimes just say that we have a cat, and I have nephews and nieces whom I love.

Whenever someone asks that question, I will often become sad, and it reminds that we don't have, nor will we ever have kids. I feel that there is something wrong with me. Like, I am not normal. I will…


1. Gift Cards, Gift, Cards, Gift Cards

I/we got three GC's this week. And I/FINALLY used one that Anker had got from the church when he quit there over a year ago. That was to Montana's (it actually was for 5 restaurants, but we only really have 2...we have a "partial Harvey's", but we wouldn't use it there). On Sunday, I was talking with my friend after church, and I was telling her on how things are a bit tough right now...and she said "follow me to Starbucks, and I will buy you a drink". Well, she not only bought me a drink, but she bought me a $25 GC card! I was SO HAPPY, SURPRISED, and THANKFUL!  If you want to make/see me happy, buy me a Starbucks GC! That totally made my week!
Hubby also got a GC from his sister to the same five restaurants that the church got for him, so we are super stoked about that. We love Montana's!!! I also won a $10 GC from Bold Pizzeria. I put my pizza on IG, and tagged them, and they just back to me,…
