I'm such a child...

It's been such a quick weekend! I just got home last night from a 48-hour shopping trip in the U.S. with some ladies from my family. It was a great time and we found some really good deals. And going through the Christmas section at Target and seeing the malls decorated for Christmas made me very excited! I bought some random pieces for Christmas gifts, stocked up on Christmas goodies we can't buy in Canada, and brought home, not only Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts, but also Pumpkin Pie coffee creamer... yum!

I spent 9 hours today at work which was extremely tiring. I haven't had any time to rest and I feel like I've been on my feet forever. I had to stock today and I have to say I'm so tempted to buy toys for myself. It's horrible working with toys and being addicted to cute things. Before I started working there I had never heard of Lalaloopsy. I don't have an urge to buy their toys but I really love and appreciate the design of them. All the dolls and their pets look like sewn together plush. It's great! I hope it's around if and when I have a daughter.

I wasn't a stranger to the Littlest Pet Shop line. I grew up with it. However, the newer figures are ridiculously cute! But I had no idea they teamed up with Blythe and have created their own Littlest Pet Shop Blythe Loves line. I've admired Blythe online and have felt a twinge of jealousy sometimes when I see one on someone's blog. I'm extremely tempted to let my first Blythe doll to be a small, Littlest Pet Shop one. Specifically this one.

One thing I know I'm definitely going to start collecting are the new My Little Pony figures. They are so adorable and I cannot wait to start watching the show - Friendship is Magic. I've convinced my best friend to give the show a shot with me since she has an obsession with horses. Hopefully she'll love it and we can have a My Little Pony marathon!

I really don't need any of these toys but my addiction to cute is insane. I don't know how to break the habit...

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.


I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
