Sofia 365: Day 181

Day 181: 9.8.12

Saturday, I had a wedding to do. So Sofie went off to her grandma’s again and I went to work. It was a fairly productive work morning, although it started off a bit rough. I didn’t have the room number for the bridal suite since I was meeting another artist there, so I wasted a bit of time in the morning trying to figure it out and get in touch with the other girl. Luckily I just followed the trail of bridesmaids in matching pink robes and champagne and it led me to the right place…

I got back in the afternoon and Sofie fell asleep shortly after I got to her grandma’s, so I hung out for a bit before we left to go home.
Once we were home we had a nice little evening watching Netflix and eating Mexican bought from my tip money.

Another good Saturday at home with the fam.

Smiley Happy Tulle Baby.

Sofia 365: Day 180

Day 180: 9.7.12

Friday was yet another warm day. I spent most of the morning continuing our apartment search although we had already put an application in on a place. I made an appointment to see another apartment later that day.

So, that afternoon I dropped Sofie off at her grandma’s and I headed to meet Jason after work to see the apartment, which ended up being quite spacious and nice, but we’re not sure if it’ll work.
It looked like Sofie had a good afternoon swimming in the kiddie pool; although it wasn’t the pool in our complex, she still got to cool down and have fun, lucky her.

Here she is – stylin’ in her summer romper.

Sofia 365: Day 179

Day 179: 9.6.12

Ack, it seems I can’t seem to stay caught up! I need to develop better posting habits.
Thursday was a fairly quiet day at home, as far as I can remember. It was also very hot.

Because it was so hot, I decided that it would be a good day to take Sofie down to the pool in our complex, because we have only been out there once, and it was an opportune time.

Kids were back in school so no splashing or noise, it was the middle of the day on a Thursday so most people would be working, it was going to be perfect!

So, I gather Sofie up, get towels, get her in her swimsuit, grab some sunscreen, get in my swimsuit pack up snacks and juice and head down to the pool. Lo and behold, it’s closed for a photo shoot.

What the heck? The one day I actually make an effort and it backfires on me!

Oh well, so Sofie and I trekked all the way back home, both of us bummed, and still no way to cool down.
It ended up being fine though, we just hung out in the house and tried our best to stay cool.

Here’s Sofie’s photo of the day – she looks a bit shocked, not quite sure by what, but I think it’s a funny photo. Her expression and body language is priceless!


Shock Baby.

Sofia 365: Day 178

Day 178: 9.5.12

Yesterday was another nice day full of household chores and house-hunting.
I spent the majority of the morning and afternoon with Sofie, doing some laundry, organizing, you know, typical house-wifey stuff…

I had lined up a few appointments in the early evening to view some houses, so once late afternoon rolled around I got myself and Sofie ready to go and we headed into the city. The first apartment we looked at was nice, but small, but in a great location. The second was a little better, but we’re not getting too excited about anything just yet…

Sofie was pretty well behaved through it all, but I could tell that she was getting tired and hungry since she hadn’t napped all day. After seeing the last place we all headed back home for a quick dinner, then bath and bed for Sofie.

I would say it was another (fairly) productive day.

This picture is pretty great too, Sofie was being such a little goof!


Sofia 365: Day 177

Day 177: 9.4.12

Hooray! Now we’re all caught up. It always feels good to be on top of things.

Yesterday was another bit of a busy day, but it was nice to get back into the routine. Waking up with Sofie, making breakfast, hanging out at home. In the afternoon I had set some more appointments to view more apartments so Sofie went over to her Grandma’s again while Jason and I were both out running errands. The two places I looked at yesterday were unfortunately probably both not going to work, but I’m still crossing my fingers that we’ll find something. Things will always work out, and I’m sure we’ll be back in the city in no time!

After I came back to pick up Sofie, we had dinner and then headed home. Sofie hadn’t napped all day, she was so tired! It wasn’t difficult getting her to bed at all, and I was pretty tired too, so it was an early night for all.

Here’s Sofie’s picture of the day – what a silly face!

Little Face!

Sofia 365: Day 176

Day 176: 9.3.12

We’re almost caught up! Hooray!

Monday was Memorial Day so Jason had the day off. We got to spend some nice little morning family time. Jason had bought some bagels at his old work the Bagel Deli Sunday morning after our meeting with the apartment manager; we haven’t had bagels in ages! Sofie seemed to like them too, especially the cream cheese.

It was a pretty typical lazy day. I didn’t get out of my pj’s and neither did Sofie really. The sun was out and it was quite warm, so we spent some time out on the patio. Sofie had a good time spreading her shoes, toys and books all over the living room and just hanging out. It was Jason’s dad’s birthday that day so he went out for a bit that afternoon to get a quiet dinner with him. He came back later that evening and hung out while Sofie and I had leftovers and watched some TV.

All in all, a nice day.

Lazy Day Baby.

Sofia 365: Day 175

Day 175: 9.2.12

Sunday, I had another wedding to do out in Snohomish. I got up to get ready in the morning and it was so nice to have everybody at home; Jason and I actually had an appointment to view an apartment in the morning so we dropped off Sofie at her grandma’s again. Jason and I had a nice little morning back in our old “hood” of Capitol Hill, we got some good coffee and went for a nice little walk as the farmer’s market was setting up before we met the landlord. If this apartment works out, we should be in a pretty cushy situation, but I won’t get my hopes up yet!
After the meeting, I headed out to Snohomish to do my wedding.
It was a beautiful day and I got to get the bride, her mother, and sister ready at a beautiful lodge by a beautiful waterfall. It was a long day, but a good one and I was glad to be home after it all and spend a quiet evening with the family.

Sorry this picture is blurry, Sofie wouldn’t hold still and my camera has been acting up lately, not a good combination! Anyways… who wants to donate to my new camera fund? 😉
