A Short Road Trip.

Yesterday Sis and I headed off on a short road trip to see our Hubby's play in Lindsay.
It was the most perfect road trip weather.
Sunny, slight breeze and a hint that summer will stick around for a little while.
We had the bestest day. I kinda didn't want it to end.
Save for the part where I was putting oil in our car in a short denim skirt at 11pm outside a ghetto gas station while a drunk guy screamed at someone across the street.
Mechanic under pressure.

There is a whole lot more girlie fun that included a photo shoot with a vintage barber chair and a lake but I simply don't have the time to share that fun with you yet. Sibling rivalry refereeing is taking up most of my day. Tomorrow.

Today, the rock show!

A Date With A Prince.

Yesterday a shorter version of The Hubby (only with my dimple) and I headed downtown on the GO to visit Sick Kids Hospital.
Nothing special, just a redo of some blood work.
Let me tell you, it is a blessing to say that it's nothing special, because almost three years ago it was a BIG deal to be rushed down there.
The incredible, fantabulous doctors and nurses there made sure our Princess came home healthy and happy to us. Them and a small miracle and a whole lot of prayers.
There are many precious children there who are battling far more crisis's than we have, those kids are amazing.

So we were gonna have fun!
He was as charming as you'd expect a Prince to be.
He held my hand so I wouldn't get lost.
He made sure I laughed and got my funny picture taken too.
He asked me to tell a little boy crying in the waiting room, that all was just fine because after the needle they give you a toy. (Only now they don't. You get a sticker. Rip Off.)
He had lunch with me, though the random Beer Pong game on my iPhone was more interesting.
He got me to buy him a car because it would make me smile......
He said please and thank you when a family friend surprised us with lunch and treats for the ride home (Thanks Chris, BEST pretzels ever and Cherry inhaled the cookies!)
He yelled "CHOO CHOO" on the platform at Union Station in case any other passengers didn't know what the train sounded like as it approached.
He told me his back hurt and his hip hurt, because he wants to be JUST LIKE Noe and Popops. I told him he's got another 55 years to go before he can start using that excuse.
He pointed out the lake as we passed by so I wouldn't miss seeing the blue water.
He had me carry him up the stairs (only once) because I needed a hug.
He lead me on the foot print path through the hospital so I wouldn't miss the Blood Clinic.
And he lavished me in smiles and hand squeezes all day, because didn't you know, it's not COOL to kiss too much in public.
I love having a Prince for a son. Call me one blessed Momma.

Then I got the pleasure of coming home to finger lickin' cuteness, a trampoline treat, and a Daddy who rocked bedtime so this tired Momma got a night out.
My sweet life...

Just trying to work on The Princess not being such a Diva.
I have NO IDEA where she gets it.
Do Not Say One Word.

And The Winner Is....

Did you really think I'd give it away so quickly...?
Am I really such an All Out There Kinda Girl that I won't make you wait...?
Well first I wanted to share my Thursday.

A simple kind of a Thursday.
Back to school shopping.
For The Prince. Not me. Though I do think that Mommy's deserve new outfits for the first day of school too... The Hubby disagreed. I bought a plain white shirt as a compromise. He doesn't know he compromised. I could've bought the faux fur vest that I've had my eye on...

There was usual play outside at Noe and Popops while Daddy had rehearsal at the house.
It wasn't so much the noise that forced us to leave as it was the Eau de Man that was wafting up from the basement.

The Princess ran while The Prince rode his scooter. She was asleep before 7pm. He wasn't.
I think it was running in shoes a size to small that tired her out. But they're sparkly ballerina slippers so YOU try telling her not to wear them!
And then my iPhone was high jacked and I found a lovely array of photos inspired by the artistic nature of an almost five year old.
Cute eh?

I finished up some work and shared a delectable Belgium chocolate sour cream cake with Sis before we both bailed to do the remaining day's business at home...

Now that I have forced my somewhat simple Thursday upon you I will announce the winner!

Or Not.

No really. Here it is.

DORIAN!!! You won Chicka! Shoot me off a message!!!

Now as for CherryApple Art Accessories, I'm holding a BACK TO SCHOOL SALE....
Check out CherryApple Art Products on Facebook and check it out but otherwise I'll get around to it in a couple of days on here...

And off to bed with me. Tomorrow I take The Prince on a little adventure downtown Toronto. You know I'll be happy!
