Weekend Away

Hugh and I travelled with my brother, Luke, sister, Jes, and both their significant others to Edmonton for the weekend. (Calder had a getaway at Grandma Fritshaw's)  I had lots of laughs, did a ton of shopping and was surrounded by fantastic company. I should be posting this fabulous blog filled with funny stories from our adventure, but I am tired and the few sad moments from the weekend are catching up with me. I am not sure how blogging at night is going to work for me now that I am back to school. I am always tired in the evening and even the best days don't seem that bright when I am exhausted.

For a couple days I might try to take 15 minutes during my lunch hour to do some writing. I am in a much better place in the middle of the day than I am at the end. I want to write, but I don't always want to be in a sad place when I do. For the record, I had a really nice weekend away.

  1. Glad you had a good weekend away. What are you taking in school? We are so glad you're continuing on with your blog. My husband and I find you to be such an inspiration to us.

  2. I think Calder spent the weekend with grampa

  3. Erin, I teach high school math. Back to school should be stated more appropriately, back to work!

    And yes, I should have more accurately put Grandma and Grandpa Fritshaw's. Although I think you would have preferred me to put just Grandpa Fritshaw's, Dad! Calder was talking about shirtless hotdogs at supper tonight.

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
