June in Numbers

Friday, July 3, 2015

I'm SUPER excited about this post mostly because I'm co-hosting with one of my bestie bloggers (whether she likes it or not)! Deena @ Shoes to Shiraz and I haven't technically met in real life, but we are connected by our Canadian-ness, our love for the Toronto Blue Jays, fashion, and our love for red wine!

I found Deena fairly early on in my blogging journey and meeting her is on my to-do list! Though, I have to admit, I have a funny feeling the two of us could get each other in trouble. :)

ANYWAYS, Deena does a monthly review post and more specifically a "month in numbers" post which is always interesting to read. So it took no persuading when she asked me to co-host and linkup today!

co-hosts this month are:

My June in numbers:

9 blog entries posted 

1 babymoon getaway - Mr. B and I headed up to Blue Mountain for a one-night pre-baby getaway. It was super relaxing, lots of fun and we had some AMAZING food! Oh, the company was pretty good too ;)

2 wedding showers attended - my little bro is getting married in August and my cousin in early September so some pre-wedding parties happened this month. Mini-me and I had a blast celebrating the lovely brides-to-be! 

1 basket of fresh strawberries picked straight from the farm - mini-me had a blast AND there's seriously nothing like strawberry shortcake with fresh berries! YUM!

3 OB appointments attended

5 pounds gained - normally, not something I'd share, but given my very pregnant-status, why not?!

2 weeks left til my due date! WHOA. 

1 family trip to the zoo - Father's Day weekend we headed to the zoo. Lots of fun with my little fam-jam, minus mini-me's unfortunate run-in with a giant goose. If you ask her about the zoo now, she'll tell you all about it including "I don't like the goose, he scares me" lol Here's hoping she's not scarred for life. 

1 book read - I read a whole, non-picture, book! I'm pretty pleased with myself about this. It could be the last one for a while.

13 episodes of Orange is the New Black watched - we may or may not have binge-watched the entire 3rd season of OITNB. I've heard mixed reviews but Mr. B and I both really like it. 

1 maternity leave started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last day of work was June 26th and I'll be staying home with my littles until July 2016 (thank YOU Canada)!!

There you have it, my June in #'s!! 
Though short, a super fun away to review my month, stay-tuned because I'm hoping to linkup similar posts with the lovely Deena in the future :)

Link up your month reviews with us and make sure you visit a couple and let them know you stopped by!
