TGIF v.25

The high of my week was having an amazing husband and wonderful mom help me out on Monday when I had dental surgery. I really could not have done it without them!

The low of my week was having said dental surgery. My face feels like I got hit with a 2×4 and the special mouthwash I have to use makes all my food taste like garbage.

Also: Norah fell off the couch because I’m an awful parent and left her there for 2 MINUTES while she was sleeping so I could help Isla in the bathroom. The stinker decided to wake up and roll over and she bailed. She cried for maybe a minute and was back to her normal self. And to retaliate for my negligence, she barfed all over my shirt. Touché, kiddo. Touché.

An internet find I loved was this post by Melissa at So About What I Said. Click through and read it, please, and then high-five Melissa for sticking it to them.

The best money I spent was on a little outfit for Norah for her photo with Santa. While she has a ton of cute hand-me-downs from Isla, I try to put her in new outfits for special occasions, like her monthly update photos. That way, when she looks back on her photos when she’s older she doesn’t develop a complex ;)

My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was getting Isla’s hair trimmed up. It’s long, wild and crazy and it just needed to have a couple of inches taken off.


The song that has been stuck in my head is the theme song for Toopy & Binoo. I hate myself a little for introducing Isla to Treehouse, but PBS Kids was getting boring for her. Oh well.

My meals of the week were:

  • Sunday – Meatloaf
  • Monday – Campbell’s Butternut Squash Soup from a box! (Kyle and Isla had meatballs)
  • Tuesday – Jambalaya {via Looney Spoons}
  • Wednesday – Spaghetti
  • Thursday – Oven baked honey garlic chicken

My plans for the weekend are to relax! Actually, I have no idea what our plans are for the weekend. Isla’s dance class tomorrow has been cancelled because of the Santa Parade, but I don’t think we’ll actually attend. Maybe I’ll try and get some Christmas shopping done instead, without a certain toddler …

  1. Oh man that sucks about the dental surgery and Norah falling off the couch. Hope you both are feeling better and hope you got some Christmas shopping done this weekend. I felt like EVERYONE and their dog were out shopping this weekend. I have a random day off work tomorrow so I think I’m going to try and get some Christmas shopping done then.


  2. I hope you’re feeling better after your surgery! And I’m sorry the theme song from Toopy & Binoo was stuck in your head, lol. There are only two TV shows Topher isn’t allowed to watch and that’s one of them, just because it’s so annoying!
