Hey readers, welcome back after the holiday break. I hope you devoured good food and wine, put your feet up, and relaxed a bit!
I had a lovely break, spending a few days with family, and then Ian and I went on a little adventure to Chicago for 4 nights. We went a little nuts shopping – the deals were insane! I’ve found it really difficult to get good-looking maternity clothes in Canada, so when I hit Gap Maternity, I took home half the store (or so it feels like). Ian scored some great finds, including a gorgeous jacket at Banana Republic that makes him look like Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock, and an All-Clad frying pan at Marshall’s that was clearance priced (it was interesting trying to explain that one to the customs officer).
Now it’s 2011, and time to get back to work. The Kitchen Reno Adventure starts today, so I’m staying in the suburbs with my parents for a few weeks while the worst of the renovation is completed. I have an ultrasound tomorrow, and we’re super excited to see the kidlet again. It’s hard to believe that the baby will be here in just a few months (due date is April 20). I better get some more work done…
