Random Thoughts

If you are looking for a place to dine on a Monday or Tuesday night in Saskatoon, you should try the Ivy's Lounge. They have 2 - 1 appetizers and a variety of dishes on their lounge menu that don't look or taste like traditional bar food (vegetable pasta for example). Not that I don't like bar food. . . . I love it (they had a steak sandwich that looked divine). Last night I was out with the girls and we had the calamari and the coconut shrimp to start. Both were good, but the shrimp were REALLY good. I mean I don't even like coconut and I loved them!

I found this new cereal at Walmart. It may not be "new" I guess, but I did just find it! It is called Sally's and not only is it tasty, it comes without a box - a little less packaging is always a plus in my books. We have a few containers from Costco (about $15 for a set of 3) that we keep cereal in, so pouring is a breeze

If you smoke please, please, PLEASE, do not throw your cigarette butts out the window of you car. It is littering (not to mention disgusting). It is all I can do not to LOSE. MY. MIND. When I am driving to work and see people flicking them out their windows. This behaviour is on my top 5 most hated. Would you throw a chip bag on the street? Littering is littering in my book. 
Last week someone had the nerve to flick one right at my face. Seriously - had I not been in the van protected by my windshield, their butt would have hit me in the EYE. Luckily for me (and for them - because you know I would have chased them down), the butt smashed into my windshield. I had to use my wipers to remove it. Sick and infuriating.

I got new glasses last week and in spite of telling Hugh I was late getting home because I was picking up my new glasses, he failed to notice I was wearing them. Sigh. I like them. Mostly because they don't fall off my face like my old ones!


  1. We love that cereal as well! I was happy to discover it at Walmart and now will get some of those containers from Costco!

    I totally agree with the smokers thing as well. It drives me crazy. I think they should be fine 50$ or more each time they are caught doing that. I don't understand how people don't see the difference between that and throwing out garbage.

    On my walk to Walmart there is a place where people park their vehicles by the Home Dept. I always find piles of cigarettes on the road because that is where people empty out their ashtrays.

  2. It is Kyla who left that comment by the way!

  3. The ashtray thing drives me crazy too. Seriously - what is wrong with people. We live in this world and they treat it so disrespectfully!

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…
