Oh, by the way....

....if you haven't heard, I'm also expecting a baby. Yeah, no biggie.

I came dangerously close to being featured on TLC's "I didn't Know I was Pregnant", having not even noticed I was knocked up until I was already 6 months in. This'll be the fastest pregnancy ever.

Within the span of 3 days, we went from finding out we were expecting, to finding out I was over 6 months in, and finally, to finding out the sex of the baby. Most surreal 72 hours ever! Oh, it's a girl.

It's my birthday.....

...and also Steven Tyler Day!

It was on this very day, a number of years ago that my best friend Lisa & I attended an Aerosmith concert in my hometown of Ottawa. But not just any Aerosmith concert. The same concert where for a brief instant, Steve Tyler held my hand. The same concert where Lisa took a more, ahem, forward approach and lunged at his thigh (ok, crotch).

Anyways, that night goes down in hostory as one of the most memorable nights of my life. Every year on this day Lisa emails me to wish me a Happy Birthday, but more importantly, a Happy Steven Tyler Day.

However, it wasn't until today, where upon emailing her back the same greeting, I realized that abbreviated, Steven Tyler Day, is also STD Day.

How appropriate I presume.

We spent the weekend....

....in Ottawa for an early Christmas.

At one point, en route to breakfast with my grandparents, my grandma suddenly asks, "Jamie, you aren't wearing thongs are you?"

After the initial hilarity of being asked that by my grandmother had wore off, I told her politely that I didn't think it was any of her business.

"But you left them in the front hall at our place! It's a little too cold for thongs, don't you think?"

Then I realized she was referring to flip flops, not underwear.

Don't hate me....

....but I have about 70% of my Christmas shopping done. And wrapped.

I also have my Christmas menu planned.

Hoping we can cut down the Christmas tree next weekend.

I need to get a life.

I just misread.....

....a People.com headline that said "Dakota Fanning Crowned Homecoming Queen" as "Dakota Fanning Drowned Homecoming Queen".

Which would have been a way more exciting story. I was slightly confused as to why it wasn't listed as their top story and instead placed halfway down the page.

I need a nap.

I have the best.....

...grandpa in thew world. The boy and I stopped by his house on Sunday for another quick visit before we left for Owen Sound. Gampy had just finished carving his pumpkin.

On our way.....

....back from Ottawa on Sunday we got terribly lost. About 400 kilometres out of our way lost. There were mountains and towns I'd never heard of, and lots of snow. And wildlife. There was also this.....

Oh, and this:

The sad part is, these were both taken at the same gas station in the middle of nowhere. On Halloween. Just sayin.
