A Confession Of Slight Stupidity

Sunday 26th –


‘Twas a rainy day indeed but one that would be spent mostly inside anyways, so the grass probably appreciated it 😏

Dad told Alaina she looked lovely and her response was “Yes I know, I’m very, very pretty😏”… also very humble it seems 😜

We went back home for lunch and then every one dispersed themselves around the house to take naps πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

The rest of the day was spent leisurely as well.

Eating, writing, drinking coffee, kid wrangling etc.




Monday 27th –

I have a confession of slight stupidity.
I won’t be confessing these often, because they would probably be a daily thing but this one was worth mentioning 😜

Pro and I had thought our passports were going to expire fairly soon so we had spent a good part of our previous town day getting the paperwork and photos required.

Once we were home and filling out the forms we realized we may have been reading things just a little wrong πŸ™ˆ

Pros didn’t expire until October of next year, mine was March of next year so not AS bad but still a slight miscalculation on our parts 😁

We figured we would get them renewed and done anyways since we already had all the stuff so a day in Saskatoon was planned.

Rebecca took all four of the children for the day and that was more than wonderful of her.

Mom, Pro and I hit the city around 10 am and didn’t stop until 6:30 pm.

The disappointment when you go shopping all day and find nothing, was real πŸ™„

We did find some shirts at a store I had wanted to go to for some time, Hardpressed Print Studio, which creates clothing unique to Saskatoon/Saskatchewan.

‘Grown On The Prairies’ will proudly be repped by me πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸŒΎπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

The restaurant we had planned on eating at was closedπŸ˜”

We spotted a restaurant called ‘Odd Couple’ right by Hardpressed, it looked interesting and was busy with people, which always seems like a good sign so we went in and waited for a table😁

We got cream cheese, crab and shrimp puffs as appetizers and they were very tasty 😊

Split between us was two mains, making for a tasty lunch with super friendly serviceπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ΄

We had multiple stops, multiple places and grew more and more tired, dreading the final stop… Costco.

The place we go to spend half our time searching for mom cause we lose her as she speeds through the isles, mazes of carts and people and the other half buying bulk items which may, or may not be needed πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ•΅πŸ»

We fiiiiiiiinally made it out of there, packed up the groceries and headed home.

Shopping really isn’t fun πŸ™„πŸ˜œ

We did pass some lovely looking canola fields on the way home ☺️

Rebecca always goes above and beyond, she had a tasty supper waiting for us after her whole day spent watching the kids πŸ’•

 Greek salad and grilled chicken with a souvlaki type sauce πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ΄

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
