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

Weekend Recap: Snow, Snow, and More Snow

This past weekend was COLD. And it snowed. A LOT.

I shared my Friday night adventures with you already (read about it here). So I won't get into it but here's a much better, natural light selfie of me wearing one of my new soft and comfy Costco sweater finds....which was PERFECT for Valentine's Day don't ya think?

Between Friday and Sunday my kids basically lived in the snow. I believe it was on Saturday morning when they decided to clear the snow off the trampoline. Except instead of snow it was really thick ice. They were very impressed and tried to save it...I won't even ask what the heck they're learning in school (facepalm).

Then they decided to try to make a skating rink on our back patio. Sounds like a great idea in theory, but, our patio is sloped and I knew it wasn't going to work. HOWEVER they were working so well together I didn't have the heart to tell them their dreams of a backyard skating rink was basically dead before it even started. So I just left them to it. Keep following me for more parenting hacks lol. 


On Sunday, it was still cold but it was so beautiful and sunny. Hubby and I filled our travel mugs with some hot coffee and took the kids to the park for more tobogganing. They had so much fun. Not too shabby for a COVID-19 lockdown snow weekend. We ran into some friends, and the kids had a blast. 


Later on they built a couple of snow forts. They were outside forever...it was great. They really needed the fresh air.

Monday was a holiday - Family Day - for us. So, we packed up and met my brother and his family for some more ... you guessed it...tobogganing. I swear I never want to hear the word tobogganing for a really long time. Well...at least until next weekend anyway.

This morning we woke up, and you guessed it. More snow. The kids had a snow day at school (no school basically) so they were able to get some more outside fun in. I've been working from home since the pandemic started so it was business as usual for me. But I did sneak a few pictures of snowmageddon, and I jumped on the treadmill during my lunch break to get myself off my arse.

Tonight it's going to be a hot soup kind of dinner, and hopefully a cosy evening in front of the fire will follow.

Somewhere under there is our fire pit!

What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? If you say hot and sunny, can I move in with you? 🤣
