Happy 7th Birthday Shaylyn!!!













Not Into It….Mom Moments

                 So Shaylyn turned 7 on the 6th. Tomorrow is her bday party. Am I a horrible parent because I’m not into it? I just want it to hurry up and happen and be done with. Since my kid has been a baby, we have always had weekend long celebrations of her bday. She’s always had more than one cake. She always gets to do stuff besides have a party. Go to the movies, go swimming and so on. I still have treat bags to fill out,which normally I love to do,but I’m just not into it this year. The list of kid invites keeps increasing. I have been hearing her talk about her bday since summer, maybe that’s why I’m so over it. I also dont wanna hear,see or look after 16 screaming, sugar induced,hyper kids. I’m dreading tomorrow and it isnt even here yet. We already had a surprise bday lunch for her at my nans, where she received gifts, had cupcakes and pizza and fruit. On the 6th, she also received more presents….I need some patience. I’m sure I wont feel this way tomorrow when her party starts happening and I get to see how excited she is with all her friends, but I still need to fill out treat bags and pick her cake up before the party even begins

Sunday Swimming & Random Journs

So Shay did get to go swimming for her “birthday weekend” & absolutely loved it. Now she wants me to get a membership for the Aquatic Center & I’m thinking I should. She had so much fun with Brooklyn,Hannah,Madison,Brianna & Emily.

Since I couldn’t go swimming I took the girls to A&W for supper in Market Square because they love the fountain.

After we went for a drive out Lepreau with Nicky, Justin & Will, stopped in Derek’s for a visit. The we picked up Ryan & Kelsey to drive her home and stopped in Linda’s for a Tim Hortons coffee run. That was our Sunday.

Moncton It Is….

So we have decided to go to Moncton for my Bday instead… which is probably better considering we won’t have to worry about anybody going to lock-up in Moncton, LOL. Besides Moncton has Kernels Popcorn and Gap Kids which I am pretty excited for and glad for the much needed shopping trip with good friends 🙂 Probably gonna laugh my ass off most of the way there.

Neil would take me to Moncton just for popcorn anyways, cause he has before 🙂 ❤ So I think the plans are journ to Monkey Town for some much needed shopping and more than likely drunken shopping hahaha, Tiff and Tom are journing up with Ne and me and my sister and whoever else is coming are going up in her car. Then if we want, we have the cottage booked off for that weekend so we dont got to come back into town right away. Well that’s if Neil remembered to call his Uncle Jack, which I doubt, but I will ask him today.

I just wish he would ask permission to use the BBQ, the worst that could happen would be a “No” and then I would just purchase a grill for the fire which we seen yesterday. Thinking drinks, BBQing, fishin’ on the lake with good friends would be a great birthday. Either way Id be happy if I just chilled with Neil for the day, doesnt really matter to me much what we do.  Not gonna lie though, pretty pumped for shopping 🙂

Tiffany & Tom

Plus Tiffany doesnt annoy me what-so-ever so it should be a good time. Probably one of the only people I could do a journ with and not wanna slap at the end of it. I’ll have fun razzin Tom anyways hahaha 🙂 So that’s the plans as of now but who knows ALOT can change in a week.

Ne & Me ❤
