Happy seven year anniversary to the love of my life! You know when you get married at 20 years old, there are lots of people who will tell you "Don't get married yet, you need to live your life first, then get married." I thought those people were crazy then, but I think they're even crazier now. I love living life with Dan and learning and growing together through it all. Best decision I've ever made!
Let's Record These Memories Shall We
Friday, September 12, 2014
one- post bath baby hair - so so good!
two- rainy day drives, watching crazy lightening storms. I'm always in awe of a lightening storm and in fear of the crazy booms of thunder
three- puddle jumping, the first thing he does once he's out the door is stomp around in any standing water. Later when Eli was asleep I pulled Dan outside to kiss me in the rain, and it was perfect!
four- signs of fall, the first yellow leaf Eli found in our yard
five- evening walks by the river in Canmore, AB when Dan was there for field camp. With the three sister's peaks in the back. Every time we visit Canmore I wish we lived there!
six- all too frequent Target trips
seven- a Saturday morning where Eli woke up way too early for the weekend, so we jumped in the car in our jammies and went for donuts

from our latest Lake Louise trip which i'm vowing now to blog about asap!
Making: lots of fresh pesto with our garden basil - yum!
Cooking: some warm soup for dinner
Drinking: hot chocolate (we have a warm theme going on since it snowed yesterday- I know, what?!)
Reading: Three Musketeers, we are going through the classics and it's so fun!
Wanting: these perfect jeans!
Looking: forward to the snow melting and having fall
Playing: peekaboo in the closets with Eli
Watching: lots of Downton Abbey. Dan finally wanted to watch it so we started from the beginning!
Wishing: I had a beach vacation in my future
Enjoying: Dan being home from field work
Waiting: for the Alaska PFD amount to be announced
Liking: that Eli is signing so well for things
Wondering: what the next year will bring for us
Loving: my warm comfy bed
Hoping: our new neighbor continues to be so quiet
Marvelling: at the sights we saw in Wateron Lakes National Park
Needing: to see my family again
Smelling: the fresh air that comes with new snow
Wearing: warm comfy sweats and my slippers! (I can't stop wearing these!)
Following: the weather report- guys I'm the lamest!
Noticing: Eli is outgrowing a lot of clothes lately
Knowing: I always use too many exclamation points when typing and texting
Thinking: fitbit is the coolest thing ever and I love having all the information overkill it provides me
Bookmarking: the Wild + Free bundles
Opening: mail is my favorite, it's like Christmas!
Giggling: when Eli spins in circles until he's so dizzy he falls over and giggles with laugher!
Feeling: way more excited than I probably should that Kate Middleton is pregnant again!

"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"
The older couple behind us at church said he looked like a hipster. I have no words haha. Below is a less blurry iPhone shot where I have no clue how I got it, then of course when I pulled out the real camera he was all moving and full of wiggles as usual! I need to get better at non-blurry action shots. Otherwise all my photos for like the next two years will be a flash of blur! (ex.last week's photos- oops!)

Is anyone else super ready for fall already? Because I am dying with anticipation! I love cool weather and walks with crunching leaves under my feet. Also, I am in no way equipped with clothing to wear in a place that gets a hot summer. I own a ton of coats, hats, gloves, and love layering. So I think it's time for the cooler weather to come! I mean, I can still consume the same amount of ice cream without it being crazy hot out ;)
Eli found a crispy yellow leaf outside today and brought it to me. I think it's a good fall omen! Hope everyone has a wonderful long holiday weekend! Dan is finally coming home this weekend and we are pretty dang excited about it!
