Day 76, 77 and 78

Day 76
Can you guess what I was craving??
 We had coke floats, and watched Did you hear about the Morgans  
It was really cute! 

Day 77
It has been so nice outside! 
Today it got up to +17c at my inlaws!
Anyways, this picture is in the flowerbed
in my backyard!
Day 78
This was taken on our walk at my inlaws!
And by walk, I mean I walked and he rode the dirtbike.
  He might be silly, but he is my best friend.

Day 73, 74 and 75

It has been a bat crap crazy week.
In and out of LDR (will this child just come already?!),
trips out to the inlaws,
and all around nesting.
Day 73
I am oh so round. Seriously, nothing fits.
Day 74
Some of Hubby's old piano books.
He wasn't impressed that the old books were the focus of my picture.
He wanted me to use the newer ones.
Day 75
 "So darlin if you're wonderin, why I've got you here tonight

I wanna be your husband, I want you to be my wife
Ain't got much to give you, but what I've got means everything
                                                                         It's my last name"
(My last name, Dierks Bentley)
There are a few things in life,
that I am proud of.
The first being my Husband.
And then a bit farther down the list is his last name.
Not only is it "a gooder" (as he puts it) but it is like royalty
in the town that we live in.
Mention that you are an Evans, and people know who you are.

Day 71 & 72

I have fallen into my old habit of not posting everyday!
For that, I am sorry!
Here are yesterday's and today's pictures.
 I got to drive the truck home last night, as hubby drove his sister's mustang home.
 I have now washed 99% of the baby items (clothing, blankets...) that we have.
Today was the first time I hung them on the line to dry.

Day 68
We are keeping SBB's name a secret till he gets here...
but I love taunting everybody with pictures like this!
Day 69
We had maternity pictures done yesterday,
I snapped this one during the photoshoot.

I love his itty bitty shoes!
Day 70
We had a busy day today,
 so I snapped this while hubby was working on the computer.
I sure do love him.

Day 66 and 67

Day 66
We had hubby's piano moved from his parents house, 
to our house.
It is beautiful. 
I can't wait to hear him play!
Day 67
I really need to finish knitting this blanket for Butters.
 Maybe I will get it done before he gets here!!

Day 63, 64 and 65

Wow, what a week this has been.
 Day 63
The original picture is on hubby's laptop.
Here is the link to see it. 
I got a grey lens filter and tried it out...LOVE IT!
Day 64
This picture is also on hubby's computer.
He is such an amazing hubby, I love him so.
And such a goof.
Day 65
I have been in and out of emerg and LDR since Monday morning.
I spent the night and got to eat hospital food. 
Yummy. NOT!
(Photo was taken with Hubby's blackberry)

Day 61 and 62

Yesterday was crap-tastic.
My body was angry with me, and I sure paid for it.
Today was much better, 
I made bread (and buns), showered, did my hair and make-up, and spent hours
on the computer.

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Day 59 and 60

Yesterday's picture is the "set up" picture 
for a maternity picture that hubby took of me!
Here is the photo he took.
And here is today's picture.
We dropped the Seester in law off at the airport,
she is going on a much needed vay-cay. I am so jealous. 
We're pretty silly.

Day 58

Yesterday we had company over,
Hubby asked if we could have cheesecake for desert!
Having never made it before, I set out.

Day 56 and 57

This weekend has been nuts.
Hence, no uploads until today.
Yesterday, Hubby and I went to the inlaws for steak.
It was amazing (as usual).
I took this picture of the horses on the way to the inlaws farm.
It is not their horses (oh how I wish), but the neighbours down the road.
How I love them so.
Today's picture is of a plow that is in a field across the "street" from my inlaws.
It is starting to look like spring!!

Day 55

Just a quick pic today!
I made bread today (it's in the oven as I type this)
 I've been craving pb&j sandwich's since I watched 
"The biggest loser" online last night.
And in my opinion, they are only worth eating on homemade
white bread.

Day 54

Today we went out to the inlaws
where I snapped this picture.
It's the "Scoop Mobile".
I have had a love affair with this machine,
ever since I thought it was called
the "Poop Mobile".
Apparently it hasn't ran in years.

Day 53

Yesterday's picture.
Can you tell that I have been craving apples...
...and tea?

Day 52

Ever since having the Italian Wedding soup
I have been craving meatballs.
So for supper tonight, I made them from scratch!
I am not a fan of meat
but these were amazing.
I found the recipe here
I did a half portion of the recipe (since there are only two of us)
and used oregano instead of italian seasoning and basil instead of parsley.
I also did 1/2 cup of dried parmesan instead 1/4 cup of fresh.
Hubby said it was a lot of parmesan, but I disagree.

Day 50 and 51.

Yesterday's picture
was a "quick pic" as we just got home from watching
CANADA beat the USA (in hockey)
and the closing ceremonies for the Olympics.
Day 51
It is starting to feel (and look) like spring outside!
Hubby and I decided to go for a walk and get some
Yup, that's right, my hubby is a fire fighter.

Day 49

I know, I was doing so good with putting my pictures up that same day.
In my defense, I was only home for the morning yesterday.
I went to the city with a friend,
shopping, dinner and a movie.
What more could I want?!
Anyways I used my new toy yesterday morning.
 I realize I am no Bakerella  
but I sure tried!

Day 48

Tomorrow is my 21st birthday,
hubby suprised me by taking the day off
and taking me to the city!
We went to my FAVOURITE restaurant,
where I consumed massive quantities of my favourite soup.
Italian wedding soup.
I really should learn how to make it.
We then shared a pizza and went to the movies!
He also got me something I have been begging for!
A new KitchenAide mixer!

Here he is setting it up for me!
What an awesome way to spend the day!

Day 47

I've gone a little bump crazy.
I don't think it is the best I have done,
but I was in a hurry to see the Canada vs USA game!
(By the way, WE WON!)

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Day 46

Look at me go!
Posting a picture the same day I took it!
I know, two bump pictures in a row.
I just can't help myself.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Day 45

Today I tried on my pre-pregnancy jeans.
Needless to say, they didn't fit.

Day 44

Yesterdays photo.
I know, I'm getting in a bad habit of not posting the same day.
I will do my best today.

Monday, February 22, 2010

Day 43

Yesterday I didn't get home till late
which means I didn't post my picture.
So here it is.
Two bumps on a couch.
We watched the Canada vs USA game. 
And yes, I did yell at all of our players...
Next time boys, play like the girls.

Day 42

Today I started to prepare our prefold diapers.
It was a tough and long battle with pots of water and
wait, who are we kidding.  
I watched Burn Notice while preparing them.
Now, before you stop reading this 
because of some misconception about what green parenting is.
There are many different shades of green
Today's picture
(Great book by the way, "Green Babies, Sage Moms" by Lynda Fassa) 
I would like to say that I do want to be a "cloth diapering, babywearing, co-sleeping,
attachment parenting, EC'ing, granola making, organic eating" Mama. 
I also thought I would share the pictures I took of diaper prepping.
First picture, two large pots full of boiling water with a squirt of Dawn.
Second picture, the Bummis prefolds.
Third picture, the Bummis boiling in the water.
Currently they are in the washing machine finishing the prep stage.

Day 41

Today we folded and folded and folded (and "ooh'd and aww'd)
all of Sweet Baby Boy's clothes.
While putting them back in his room I decided to take this picture
And since I feel like a giant puffy version of myself,
I decided to take a picture of how I feel when I see myself.

Ah yes, the glorious chipmunk cheeks, how I love them.

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Day 40

Because the 31lbs I have gained haven't been enough
Insert sarcastic laugh here
I decided to make cinnamon buns today.
Yup I'm brilliant.
And yes, it was amazing.

Day 39

It's been almost six years
and I love this man more each day.

Day 38


Feeling the need to prepare for the arrival of the baby by cleaning, organizing, etc. Often happens toward the end of pregnancy.

I think I have started nesting, seriously I washed all of the little mans clothes and blankets today.
I wonder how much longer this phase will last.

Day 37

Today's picture is a 
"crap it's getting late, take a picture before its tomorrow!"

Day 36

Happy Valentine's Day!
Today was the first V-day, hubby and I have spent together.
Even if it was only half a day, I am thankful.
Hubby even made my favourite breakfast for me!
I love you baby. 

Day 35

We went out for Chinese food last night
I snapped this picture while waiting for my spring rolls.
Ps, my Spring rolls had meat in them. Is that normal?
I`ve only had them with veggies in them...

Day 34

I decided to start doing a mini series in honour of Valentines Day.

Day 33

I know, for the most part, that everyone thinks that their husband is the best.
But they are wrong. 
My husband clearly outshines everyone else's.
My husband is the best
He loves me, clearly this is not an easy task.
I am selfish, unmotivated, lazy, look like a beached whale, and whine...just to name a few.
He washes the dishes, even without me asking him. 
He bought me a new hard drive, to store all my pictures so that I wouldn't lose them again.
He reads to the baby, which clearly puts him at number 1.
He's a firefighter, which sometimes drives me nuts. 
He is patient with me, and really everybody else.
He is a hard worker, at one point he was working 3 jobs just to pay for my engagement ring
He is mine, this coming May we will have been together for 6 years. 
We were off-again-on-again dating that time but always within arms reach.
Happy early valentines day my love.
Love Kait.
