Another Monday.

Friday
It was an early pickup day from the day home, so I decided to take Liam to check out Treehouse. We met some friends there briefly as well. Liam had a blast and it was nearly impossible to get him out of there.

Shortly after getting home and finishing dinner, Mary popped over for a visit and glass of wine. Unfortunately she got to witness the fun time I’ve been having putting Liam to bed lately. I really hope it’s just a phase. The rest of the night was spent watching Scandal.

Saturday
Liam’s dad picked him up early enough that I could be off on an adventure with a girlfriend. It took an hour of waiting outside in the cold with coffees and a blanket for the walk-in day at a local tattoo shop. We both decided to get some work done. (Sorry mom).

It was spontaneous and over in what seemed like 5 minutes but I couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

I had been thinking about kindness a lot lately, especially after my post last week. This serves a reminder not only to be kind to myself, but for everyone to be a little more kind. To themselves, to others, to everyone. How much better would the world be if everyone else was just a little more kind?

I stayed with my girlfriend until it was her turn to go in and then went home to warm up on the couch under some blankets until she was done. We met back up at Fionn’s for some brunch and drinks. I had every intention of getting groceries and cleaning after lunch, but laziness one over. I ended up falling asleep on the couch for a bit.

My evening plans consisted of hitting up the local haunted house with Cassandra. I screamed my face off, as usual. They do such a great job every year. We headed down to To The Lost for a drink and dessert after.

Sunday
Instead of our Sunday run, Mary convinced me to try my hand at spin. You can read all about it here. As brutal as I felt during the class, I’m looking forward to going back again. We went for coffee afterwards and then I did a grocery run before picking up Liam. We had plans to meet up with one of my colleagues from Edmonton with his wife and baby while they were passing through.

Liam was a ham the entire time. He was being so sweet and cuddly and was so interested in the baby. Normally he doesn’t like me holding babies, but he loved me holding this sweet little girl and even asked to hold her himself.

We headed home to clean the house, do some meal prep and hang out for the rest of the afternoon. Somehow Liam decided he loved vacuuming and wouldn’t let me touch the vacuum. I had zero complaints about that. Especially when he went to bed without a fight afterwards.

The rest of the evening was spent doing laundry and blog work while I finished Season 3 of Scandal. I actually ended the day ready to tackle a new week.

What did you get up to this weekend?

    What a perfect tattoo! I would have to stay away from any tattoo parlors with walk-in appointments right now, as I’ve been having the itch for another tattoo for a while, and might make a sudden decision. Looks like you guys had a busy weekend. A friend of mine keeps trying to get me out to a spin class… but I keep resisting, need to give it a go I guess.

      Yeah – it’s kind of dangerous knowing how easy it is to get a walk in tattoo at the best shop in town. Now I want to keep going!

      I think it’s good to give everything a try at least once!

    Sounds like a great weekend! Obviously you already know I love your tattoo 🙂 You should read the book Wonder by RJ Palacio. It’s a young readers book and it’s about a young boy who was born with a deformed face. The overall theme of the book (or what I took away from it), is to choose kindness. It’s such a beautiful, lovely story and I think you would enjoy it. (I actually keep meaning to post on instagram about it because it’s stuck with me for months now).

    Hahaha – love the photo of Liam vacuuming! Sully loves to “help” me vacuum too, but he’s not strong enough to actually do it on his own yet. I can’t wait for that day! 😉

      I’ll keep that book in mind! Thanks for the recommendation!

      Haha, I’m so pumped Liam likes to vacuum. Now I don’t have to wait for him to be gone to vacuum!

    Love the new tattoo 🙂 Was there a long line up for the walk-in? I’ve always thought about doing it but never sure how long it would take. Also, does the price change or is it still just an hourly rate? Liam vacuuming = THE CUTEST.
