Fun Filled Weekend!

Where do I begin?
Saturday morning was the Great Cloth Diaper Change & that night a pretty big AppleCheeks dinner!
The Great Cloth Diaper Change was held at the Direct Energy Centre here in Toronto. I’m so glad I was able to participate for a 2nd year! At 11a a whistle blew and all of us changed our babies at the exact same time into cloth diapers!

Here I had just finished changing Justin’s bum and holding him up for the group “we did it!” Shot!
This was also a day of firsts for me because it was the first time I nursed Justin while babywearing! More specifically the ring sling! I was even able to shield him from the wind with the tail of the fabric and it worked perfectly. He fell asleep and slept the whole way home!
We sat right outside the Direct Energy centre where the cloth diaper change was and I was able to nurse him right there!

After the change Jordan and I went for lunch then we came home and I tidied up wasting time for our big dinner.

You see, co-owner of AppleCheeks – Ilana, who is also my boss was in town for the weekend so there was a dinner event created on Facebook in her honour. We went to a Mexican place to eat. There was a ton of AppleCheeks fans and friends and it was a great time! I finally got to meet some people I had been waiting a very long time to meet!
I was completely out of my comfort zone, felt a little out of place at first but once Ilana arrived all was right. She lights up a room and any ounce of nervousness I had instantly left. When she walked in, everyone cheered and it was like we had all known her forever! At least I felt that way, it was like seeing an old friend for the first time in a long time – because we’ve known each other over 2 years online and via Text! It’s something I never thought would happen, but now that it has I wish we all lived in the same City (and Country for that matter, BETH AND KATIE MOVE HERE!) because it would be incredible to be able to actually work together in one building!
It was a really great night. Although I will say I wasn’t too fond of our waiter at Playa Cabana Cantina here in Toronto. I found him to be rather rude, short and not at all personable like I am used to {my husband works in restaurants, and I couldn’t imagine him ever being like this guy!} the good was wonderful though which makes up for the waiter being less than stellar.
If you have Instagram and are interested I posted a ton of a photos from that night. It was a ton of fun and I really hope we can do it again! Here are two of my favorite pics from that night…..
 I hate this photo of myself, but Ilana looks flawless and perfect as usual :)
Hey look! Heidi was there too!!! (photo cred: Katy!)
Then Sunday Ilana came over – got to meet all my kiddos and we went out for dinner just the two of us. We got to talk about work and basically everything we could think of! We were at the restaurant for over 2 hours. Then it was time to go home, she took me home and we sat in the car for a bit longer chit chatting. I can honestly say she is beyond what I imagined. She is so full of life, and happiness just pours out of her all over and you can’t help but feel wonderful when with her! AppleCheeks fans – If you ever get a chance to meet Ilana, do it! Shes incredible.
I can’t wait for the day I get to meet Amy, and hopefully one day Beth and Katie too. That would be absolutely amazing!
Great weekend, Great memories!
