Take a picture. It lasts longer.

We had another house showing the other night and I couldn't pass up the chance to take a picture of how incredibly clean my kitchen looked. It's a rare sight, so I needed to soak it in...

Seriously, who wouldn't want to buy such a nice looking place, right ?? :)


Then, taking pictures of my kitchen turned into taking pictures of the kids.



If you thought Silas' blankie was bad before, you should see it now...


Every time I wash it, it comes out looking more and more like a giant knot of strings. But, obviously I have to keep washing the thing. It's the first item to get thrown up on and slobbered over. It's the most convenient facial tissue for the ever-running nose and it probably picks up more dirt off my floor than my mop... I have to tie it up in a pillow case when I put it in the dryer now, to avoid it getting tangled up in my dryer balls. Good thing for Silas, this blankie's texture has made for a super-duper fast drying time!


Not sure what to say about this picture. I'll let it speak for itself.



Erik bought me a new jacket on the weekend.


I've been eyeing this one for awhile (at Sport Chek) but really didn't expect to buy it. After going back a few times, trying it on, and still liking it, Erik told me I could get it :)
Now that I've worn it a few days, I've decided that I love it.
I love that it's long (and covers my longer shirts so they don't stick out all awkward at the bottom), that it has a hood (think rainy, windy BC winters), and that it's warm (warm enough for BC anyway!).


I'm really hoping we'll have some good news to share in the next week or so about selling our house. We have FOUR different couples/families coming this week to see it and possibly another repeat visitor. We're praying that an offer will come soon!
