CBG & Ankle Biter
Kicked off the month of May by hanging out with my son for the weekend. Even though we’re not with each other every day, he seems to be getting more and more like me all the time.
In order to get myself prepared for my first day at work (AT THE NEW JOB!!!), I decided to head out for a run. It was a GORGEOUS morning, which totally helped get me motivated.

The other thing that motivated me was seeing my incredible wife continuing to run EVERY SINGLE DAY for more than two years straight!! She really is awesome.

I stumbled upon this advertisement on my May 2nd morning run. I mean...I have NO IDEA where I can purchase some "Giant Octopus In My Toilet" insurance, but I'm thinking it might be something I need to get.

This was the selfie I took of myself just before walking into the office of my new for the very first time. I was out of work for NINE MONTHS. I was a little bit nervous, to say the least.
The awesome part was walking into my office and seeing the placard that was already made for me. It was just a small thing that made me feel VERY welcomed.

I had a big pile of awesomeness and a "Congrats" sign waiting for me when I got home from work. My family really is the best.

My teammate at work brought this in from New Brunswick on May 6 at 9:30 in the morning. I mean...you gotta try them, right? Why would you even wait??

I don't know if my plans for Mothers Day worked out to perfection, but I did my best. She deserves at least that much.

One week into my job and I was already on the road with my teammate for business. We hit up Relish Gourmet Burgers for lunch.

Business class hotels. Something I'm not used to yet, but something I'm going to have to GET used to.

I really don't take too many selfies, but this was one I took while at a work function so I could send to the girls back home. I clean up pretty good, I think.

Had a really good late-night meal at the King Street Ale House in Fredericton, NB. Great beer selection.

The Ankle Biter and I had another weekend together. This time around we went to see Captain America: Civil War. I was totally #TeamIronMan, but he wasnt too sure who he wanted to be. Either way, the movie was fantastic!

One thing Ive quickly learned is that the office LOVES food. If there is a birthday to be had, there are sweets to be inhaled. This time we celebrated a birthday with the company that helped cater my wedding reception: Suzies Shortbreads. Trust me...these cupcakes taste even better than they look!!

Saw the coolest new fountain pop machine at a local Subway. I can't even describe it...but for whatever reason, it gave me great joy.

The screen was completely animated as opposed to the buttons on the bottom of a normal fountain machine) and you could press for whatever flavour you wanted.

Much to my surprise, when I went to have some Dr. Pepper, I was actually given THREE different flavours to choose from!!! Forget the fact that the end result tasted like soda water...the fact that I was able to even choose Vanilla Dr. Pepper brought more joy to me than it probably should have lol).

While at the local Bed, Bath, & Beyond I found the most incredible item. It was a DARTH VADER TOASTER!! Do I need something like this? Of course not, but when I noticed that it actually printed STAR WARS into the toast, I asked for it as a birthday present. I just have to wait until September to be disappointed when Sunshine doesn't buy it for me. :-P

To further confirm my dedication to getting back out there and training for my half-marathon in September, I purchased a pair of Sauconey sneakers. Like...REAL running shoes!! I'm growing up, I guess...

Sunshine and I went to Peggy's Cove for sunset as a Saturday night date. It clouded over before we could get an awesome sunset, but it didn't matter. I loved it.

The sunset may not have been perfect, but I think my wife is. BIG time.

I finished off the month the same way I started it...hanging out with the Rugrat. Even though I was sick as a dog, we still managed to have a great time. The boy needs a haircut, though...looking too Bieber-esque for my tastes.
