Weekly Happenings and Marvellous in My Monday #1

It’s been one heck of a roller coaster week my friends, one heck of a roller coaster.


It’s also my very first week participating in Katie’s Marvelous In My Monday series, so here’s how I’m gonna do it:

For everything “not so awesome” that happened this week, I’m going to expand on one thing that was TOTALLY awesome. I’ll bet, by the end of this post there will be way more awesome than “not so awesome”.

How many times can this girl say “awesome”? Ha! a lot 😉

and GO:

Not So Awesome
-The Hubby has been working a lot of night shifts leaving me with the wee Munchkin all week, and it just so happens it’s been the HOTTEST week we’ve ever? had in Yarmouth. Ariel has been getting heat rashes all over her poor little body, her tummy has rashes from scooching around on it wearing nothing but a diaper.

(Digression in progress: she doesn’t “crawl” necessarily, she propels herself with one knee and pulls with both arms, dragging her entire body across the floor. Rash city! But at least she’s moving, that’s all that matters right?)


The Scooch

– Hubs and I got to go on a date at the beginning of the week. It’s been 9 months since we were able to get out of the house together just the two of us, so this was a glorious evening that both of us really needed. We’re going to try and make sure it happen more often!

Not So Awesome
-The teething monster came back


That’s number 6 😉 only…. 12? moretogo….. *cry*

– 6 teeth down, only 12 more to go! WOOHOO!

Not So Awesome
-We’re in the thick of summer and I’ve been crazy busy with work as well. Let me tell you, it is NOT fun dragging around a rash-y, teething, feverish, crying baby wherever you go. Very. Stressful.

-A surprise bag of 50% off organic goodies my Husband found at the grocery store while he was working one night. *swoon* gosh I love him, He’s always thinking of me 😉 Included in the bag: 3 mini bags of organic flax seeds, cous cous, and lentils! ❤

Not so awesome
-There’s now a new rash covering Ariel’s entire head and neck and she will not stop scratching and smacking herself on the face because it’s so itchy! My heart is completely broken for her </3. It’s much worse every time she’s in her high chair (which means she barely eats anything everyday, so she’s probably hungry on top of everything else. *Sigh*), we are contemplating the idea that she may be allergic to the matial. Or perhaps it’s just another heat rash. She has an appointment with the paediatrician tomorrow so HERE’S HOPING everything will clear up.

-Family pool time with our new kiddy pool in the backyard! so much fun on those extra hot days.


Not so awesome
– The dog is a jealous bag and keeps digging up the backyard, and he pooped in the basement, oh, and in the bed. agk!

-This box of NEW Simply bars I won from Angela. I have’nt tried one yet since they just came in the mail about 2 hours ago, but they’re “maple pecan” flavour, I don’t know if those could taste bad in anybody’s world!


Not so awesome
-The fridge broke…… again. Now we ponder, repair costs or new fridge costs? hmm..


The repair man, aka the hubs, working his magic 😉

– My order from National nutrition came in the mail today too. BOOYEAH! I ❤ you health products!


-Waking up to the smell of homemade chicken broth in the slow cooker. mmmmm

-These super sweet shoes I found for $9 at Wal-mart. So cute.


-A new Superfood Series that I’m going to be starting on this blog within the next couple of weeks, stay tuned for more info!!! It’s going to be a blasty blast 😉

There, what’d I tell ya? WAY more awesome than not. But really who am I kidding, I’m the one that needed to see it laid out in front of me. This week ahead, yeah, I have a feeling its going to be a killer one!

What’s happening in your world these days? Awesome, or not so awesome?

Hugs Kisses and Cookies
