12 bullet bulletin {part 3}

Sunday, August 5, 2012

We interrupt irregular programming with this so not important Twelve Bullet Bulletin:

1. I'm holding Trev 100% responsible for the teeth through tongue incident that had us in Emerg before breakfast - Gabe may be part orangutan, but where was the supervision around the stool dad? Blood pouring from my baby's mouth equaled mind tornado - will he aspirate on hemoglobin in his car seat? does this warrant a call to 9-1-1? will the walk-in suffice? should I put on a bra? what's G's blood type again? sh*t there goes today's plans.

2. Those airmiles we've been collecting for eons? well we finally cashed them in for 2 flights to Me'hico. My parents are renewing their vows in February on the tiny island of Isla Mujeres and we wouldn't miss it for the world. I don't know what I'm more excited for: {a} no kids for 9 days, {b} vacationing with my sisters & their misters or {c} not being preggers at an all-inclusive this time (our last 2 trips to Mexico I've been 'with child').

3. I mailed my letter off this week asking for an additional 2 months off work. In the beautiful province of British Columbia government employees can request that their maternity/parental leave be extended for a maximum of 6 (unpaid) months. I took 2 extra months off with Saige so it's only fair I do the same for Gabe ;)

4. Can you believe Gabriel turns ONE in less than 2 months?!

5. Can you believe the excavator will be paid off on Gabe's birthday?!! 

6. Can you believe I haven't started planning a party for either one?!!! Whatever we do decide to do - if anything - will be on the intimate side (read small & cheap) seeing how the backyard will be torn up with renovations in full swing.

7. I'm legitimately starting to worry about Saige's eating habits and appetite which are basically non-existent these days. My mom thinks her ginormous tonsils are to blame? whatever the reason she's not getting any heavier only taller. I thought the Pinterest snack necklace might be a bite in the right direction, but finding healthy foods with holes was kinda tough...

we can all thank Christine for the fancy name

7. On Monday - thanks to Groupon - I met up with Kim from Paper Sun Photography for a one-on-one photography coaching session and it.was.awesome. Six whole hours to ask whatever I wanted about my camera, composition, lighting, editing, exposure, shutter speed... I can't think of a better way to spend a Monday.

8. While it's no 'Dexter' or 'Mad Men', 'Breaking Bad' is our latest Netflix victim and it's insane. My uber cool, dirt bike riding brother-in-law gave it his stamp of approval. I'm pretty sure his recommendation started off with, "you know the dad from 'Malcolm in the Middle'?" ummm what? Once I stopped laughing, I checked out Episode 1 of the chemistry teacher turned meth dealer and was surprisingly smitten.

9. I couldn't be more in love with playmobil.

10. 2 words: Farmer's Market. Vendors peddling their delicious locally grown fruits & veggies have truly become the best part of my Okanagan summers... strawberries, cherries, peaches, peas - I'm in produce heaven. We even have our very own backyard raspberry patch going on; perfect for afternoon snacking.


11. My body is officially hooked on alkaline water, try it.

12. We got our camping photos back from Lindsay Gee - HOORAY! - and the bloopers are some of my favourites; like this one of Saige showing off her ink {a temporary tattoo of Woody who sometimes feels like the 5th member of the Knol family}...

* well folks that's this week's 12 random facts you probably wish you hadn't wasted your time reading. Be sure to coming back next week, month, decade for part 4 of what Pinterest pin got the ol' follow through. THE END.

Enjoyed this post Sara! Playmobil is the best, we don't have that set yet, it looks awesome. Loving the farmers market here too. Sorry to hear about Gabe's accident, hope he heals quick. xx

Ha ha! Entertaining post. Number one was especially funny (well written) though I can imagine NOT funny at the time! Glad everyone is okay. Happy Long Weekend!

christine, just bella said...

Haha, you crack me up. As does that photo of saige's tattoo, man, that girls got spunk!!

Erika said...

OMG, so jealous of your trip to Mexico...even if it is like a year way. Ha. Even though we just got back...I'm already looking forward to going back!! And would it be inappropriate for me to wear a snack'lace of my own? No? That's what I thought.

Poor Gabe! I hope he's feeling better soon!

Ashley said...

Hope your little man is doing better, your little lady is eating more and you get a BIG ol margarita in Mexico!

Randalin @ Harvesting Kale said...

Oh man, I love your posts so much. I could probably write a "12 comments to your 12 points" here but that's probably against some kind of blog etiquette to take up that much space. I think we should seriously consider some fundraising efforts to get you here for Blissdom this year.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

which playmobil's do you guys have? any recommendations? I promised Saige if she actually participates in dance camp we'll get her another set. Chapters.ca had a wicked 30% off sale a few weeks back - love online shopping ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

definitely NOT funny. I'm usually calm, cool and collected in such moments; I guess not when tongue wounds are involved. thanks for stopping by *mwah*

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

she's got something alright ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

blogger reunion in Mexico?! done. I'll send you a snack'lace to munch on while you recover on the couch. xo

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

thanks love - his tongue has a flap which will hopefully blend back into the taste buds.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you & me both Ash. wanna plan Gabe's b-day? great, thanks.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Blissdom with you sounds... blissful. Maybe there will be a session on blog etiquette? I have NO idea what's appropriate (as in I pin my own shit).

Anne said...

One of my biggest fears is going on a badass vaca & being prego. I agree, no bueno.

And hello, why do I not live in British Columbia. 6 MONTHS OF MATERNITY LEAVE!!!???!!!???

Family pic is absolutely adorable. Framer, for sure. :)
