I checked to mail today and was excited to see that my new Feminist AF pin arrived. I’m going to sport this baby everywhere. Maybe I’ll even buy a couple for the girls. $2 from every pin sold goes to Now Australia which is an organization that was inspired by the #metoo movement.

I got a couple of Zara gift cards for my birthday so I am actively watching the website for new fall arrivals. I’m looking forward to some new sweaters. Speaking of sweaters, Roo asked for some “soft and fuzzy” sweaters for fall and when I was shopping yesterday I found this one for her. It is neither soft, nor fuzzy but she loves it as I knew she would.

It’s long weekend here, just a Civic holiday so nothing special but long weekends are always fun. Even more so when it falls on your birthday :) It’s Really hot and humid though so I’m not sure how enjoyable it will be. Tom was talking about taking the girls to Canada’s Wonderland this weekend but with the heat and the long weekend it will be insane. Neither kid does well in the heat and last time we went one got overheated and puked. I think it’s best to wait until early fall for that one. I just wish that things didn’t get so insane here on weekends (especially long ones) because I’d like to maybe do the Aquarium or Science Centre….I’ve got a kids get in free coupon for the Science Centre so that is the front-runner ;)

When I was three years old my mom noticed that my right eye turned in when I was colouring. She brought me to the ophthalmologist where I was diagnosed with being extremely far-sighted. That’s when I got my first pair of glasses. When I was 6 years old I had to have eye surgery to correct the muscles in my eyes. It was a fairly invasive procedure and I can still remember the details and recovery process to this day.

Tom asked me what I want for my birthday, and I’m drawing a blank. We don’t spend tons of money on each other for things like birthdays, usually around $100 or maybe $150 if it’s something that we really want. I have a few things in my virtual baskets that I haven’t bought yet that I could add to my birthday wish list, like this t-shirt, the Everlane dress that I mentioned last week, and this tee. I’m pretty easy-going though and would also love a Zara gift card or and upgrade to my phone (it’s due for one so I have some pretty good deals in my account I just haven’t got around to it yet). Any good ideas?

It’s funny how much cleaning can get done when your kids want something. So far I got a week of relatively good behaviour, the girls’ bedroom got cleaned, the living-room vacuumed. Then she tidied my desk top for good measure. All of this for the grand total of $2.99 (she wanted a new Minecraft skin for her characters). It was cheaper than an allowance.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Nordstrom sale right? ;) Well today it opened up to us commoners (those that don’t have a Nordstrom card). So happy shopping to all of you who have waited, and I hope they restocked the items that you wanted. In Canada the sale doesn’t apply to online so I have to go in to an actual store. I’m not really feeling that right now so we’ll see if my mind changes over the weekend.
