Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

Friday Five's - It's Not to Early for Christmas Right?!

I'm the worst at keeping a schedule in my person life. During the work day...I am on point with my schedule and to-do lists. I've always said that, and although I'm aware, I just can't seem to get my shit together on this dang blog! Or my workouts. Or meal planning/WW (Weight Watchers). 

I'm posting a Friday Five's article on Saturday morning. This is just how I roll...get used to it friends!

Back to our scheduled programming.....

Is it just me or did the stores kind of skip over Halloween and move straight to Christmas? I swear I say this every year. But this year, maybe because we're still being cautious and not going out as much because of this pandemic, I feel like the stores are all about Christmas decor and holiday gift guides. Not that I mind, I'm not a huge Halloween fan anyway.

This past week was so busy, and we had lots to celebrate. Here's a highlight.

The kids and I took in the beautiful sights of a nearby walking trail with my parents.

My daughter celebrated her First Holy Communion. It was supposed to be in the Spring but COVID-19 had other plans. We didn't get to give her the party we had hoped, but my parents surprised her with a cake after we got home from church. Overall she was super happy and I think all she wanted was to wear a poofy dress anyway! 

We clean up well! 

Soooo I did a thing. I started curating Christmas decor and ornaments already. While I complain that the stores have started Christmas marketing too early...I caved. Drank the Kool Aid. Bought a few Christmas ornaments for myself and my brother's family.


Speaking of Christmas, I also got really really excited about this gift wrap organizer I found on Amazon.ca - no I'm not an affiliate and no I will not make money if you buy it. I am just really really excited to have found an organizer at a very reasonable price point! I get it tomorrow...should I do an unboxing? lol 

It's called: ZOBER Premium Wrap Organizer and it was only $26.99 Canadian...and I get it tomorrow thanks to Amazon Prime! Woohoo
Curly haired girls and ladies in the house...this brush is amazing for detangling after a shower. It doesn't matter how much conditioner I use in my daughter's hair, it is always a birds nest. This brush is a life saver. And rumour has it, Dollarama sells them now.



So there you have it, my Friday Fave's and a taste of what's to come for me for the upcoming Christmas season....lot's of shopping...obviously.

How was your week? Any plans for the weekend?

Join me and a bunch of other awesome bloggers for this Friday Fave's blog hop.
