We don't really have anything planned for tonight's dinner but we'll go for a nice walk on this sunny day and Daniel will study (exams are next week) while I hopefully do some spring cleaning. Enjoy the long weekend!

Happy Easter! Emily is still too young to have done an Easter egg hunt or have chocolate so we didn't really do anything big this year but we did make a nice big breakfast this morning. Eggs, French toast and bacon with a smoothie that has blueberries, bananas, milk and yogurt on the side. I love big breakfasts and I want to make them more often.

I first tried these as an appetizer at Montanas and fell in love with their spiciness. We found a homemade version of the recipe and make them every once in awhile and I just love them. Daniel makes homemade tortillas and they're even better. :)
Incase you're wondering, it's a cream cheese mixture (this one has cream cheese, jalepenos and red pepper) spred over a flat tortilla. Then sprinkle a bit of marble cheese, roll it up, then slice the torilla a few times and cook until crispy. It's so good.

It's just been one of those days today. Even on the worst of days Emily can make me smile and I'm grateful that she is in my life. We were very close to getting into a car accident today (some woman in oncoming traffic sped over a blind hill in OUR lane) and I've just been feeling off all day. I'm sure te terrible weather hasn't been helping.
Of course there have been some good moments today, but for the first time since I started this Happy challenge 63 days ago I found myself struggling to find something to pick as my happy picture.
Then I thought of Emily. She has made me smile and laugh so much in these past 9 months. She has brought back joy into our lives and for that I am grateful. She has started crawling, pulling herself up on furniture, making funny faces, and my favourite of them all... dancing. If you play music or sing she puts her hands up and starts doing the twist. It's sooo funny! So even on the worst of days, my little girl always makes me happy.
I'm doing my best to enjoy each minute as they come but I'm also lookin forward to watching her grow up. I want to be the best role model I can be. I'm excited for our family vacations, our future mother daughter dates and the everyday things like helping her do homework.
As a little girl with brothers I always wanted a sister. I may never get a sister but I'm blessed to be a mother to 2 daughters and it love them both with all of my heart.
