Weekend (Vacation) Recap

I have to admit I am kind of happy to be home after our week at the lake... it's about 10 degrees cooler at home plus our main floor doesn't actually get super hot so it's not torturous to be in the kitchen or watch TV, etc. Don't get me wrong, the cabin is my absolute favorite home away from home and I feel so lucky and blessed to be part of a family who welcomes me to this magical vacation place but this week was a little rough. We were super lucky to have AC in our room but during the day the only really comfortable spot to be was in the lake. Thankfully the water was warm (basically the same temp as it is in September after having the summer sun warm it up) so I spent quite a bit of time standing there reading my book. 

Being pregnant in a heat wave is no joke - I could not cool down!! I retained heat better than a magic sack fresh out of the microwave. I am pretty sure if I had a good buzz going I would have barely noticed the heat but that obviously didn't happen. 

I should also point out that we have an air quality issue right now… there are so many forest fires that ash and smoke and all the other bad crap is being blown into our area. I heard that the sky was actually orange on Sunday morning, it doesn’t look as bad now but the air advisory is still in effect so not spending much time outside. It’s still hot and muggy though…

We desperately need rain so I am killing all the spiders I see and just thinking positive. If you know a rain dance, please bust it out for us.

We head back up in four weeks and I am just praying that the weather is a little cooler. Or that my body gets more used to it. I also plan to make lots of virgin slushie drinks... I wasn't smart enough to get on that bandwagon until Friday night but better late than never! The Bacardi lime margarita mix (blended with water and ice) was a party in my mouth. I barely noticed the lack of tequila. #winning 

And now for the requisite photo dump.

I think after 6 years Milo might finally understand where we are going when we pack up the truck at 5am and hit the road...

Sums up our trip (well my trip, add in a lot of beer for my hubby!)
And this pic sums up our last night - complete exhaustion.

Linking up with:


  1. oh my gosh that picture of your pup needs to be framed! It's so cute! I am sending our cloudy 22 degree southern ontario weather your way!

  2. OMG, I can't get over that smiling dog photo! Best picture ever! Would it be weird if I made that my screen saver?! :)
