++Today is Ben and I's five year anniversary! 5 years?! That seems like a big one right? We celebrated last night with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then went to go see The Martian.  Nothing too fancy but still my favorite kind of date night. Everett came with us to dinner, and although not as romantic, I loved every second of it, who knows, it may be our last date as a family of just 3!

I am so happy to be married to my true best friend and partner. We balance each other out. I stress, he doesn't. He does the bedtime stories, I do the lullabies. I cook, he does the dishes.  I jump to the worst conclusions, he jumps to the best. He drives, I hate it and he downplays holidays while I go crazy overboard. See? MFEO (that's Made For Each Other for everyone over the age of 14) Most days I need to better at realizing how lucky I am. Thanks for always always helping me fold the laundry, for always saying sorry first, for letting our present to each other this year be new bedding (which you could care less about) and for being Everett's and I's rock and best friend! Cheers to 5 years!!

++In other FriYAY news, we hadn't been to see a movie in six months and now have been to two in the last two weeks (hands praise emoji) We saw Everest last week, and although very sad and seeing all those major heights in 3D made my hands sweaty the whole time, I thought it was really intriguing and well done. It made me google everything all about the book and the true story when I got home.  Last night we saw The Martian. I just read the book this week in preparation and I think I read the book and saw the movie too close together because I was analyzing every little change. The book was super scientific and went into insane detail about his math and problem solving and stuff and I was surprised how much I missed that in the movie. I thought Matt Damon did awesome though and two thumbs up for the movie!

++I have been packing my hospital bag the last few days. With Everett, I was so unprepared and when my water broke 3 weeks early I ran around like a headless chicken and brought all the wrong things.  My top recommendations are slippers, your own pillow and a nice fancy body wash to make you feel luxurious after just pushing a baby out. I still want these Gap+Aiden and Anais swaddle blankets so bad but sheeeessh $$$, and this grey sleeper is my favorite thing I have bought for the baby so far-Go Old Navy-it is so soft and cozy and simple and SMALL!

++Did you guys know it is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend? Always makes me so homesick and hungry.

++So snapchatting is fun! I only have like 10 people on mine and still don't know how to use it 100 percent but I am hopping on that bandwagon hard core. My name is cassie.tremblay if you want to see even more pictures of Everett and things I'm eating for lunch and stuff.

++I know this is pathetic to even think about this stuff but I have had serious internal debates about what color I want my nails to be when I give birth this time. I am deciding between Essie's Ladylike and OPI steady as she rose. (both aptly named actually) and then something bright on my toes, for like motivation or something ;/ !?

I stressed about my toe color for labour too. haha. it just matters to some of us!! judge away everyone else. i picked a coral and I remember just staring at my toes during the pushing. and after when i was all gross and being stitched up i remember thinking well at least my feet look good. its the little things! maybe like steady as she rose for your fingers, and like a navy blue for a boy on your toes? i have navy on my toes right now and really have been loving it. although thats not crazy fun or motivating. maybe black for halloween would kinda be exciting! wish we could paint our toes together.
