Obsessions

What have you been reading, watching, and listening to lately? I feel like I need to take a year off just to catch up on books and movies and TV shows that interest me.

I'm itching to dive into The Hunger Games which I finally got for Christmas. But I started on my pile of comics before Christmas and I don't want to move on until I'm finished all of them. I have collected so many free comics from the comic conventions I've attended over the years and they keep piling up. I've always been caught up in books and other graphic novels to read any of the free ones. So far my favourite has been IZombie.

I'm almost finished the entire series of Gilmore Girls again... I have a handful of episodes left and I'm already wanting to restart it again. The show puts me in such a good mood. I'm thinking of moving onto Scrubs after though. I need a show I've seen numerous times before so I can craft and only pay half attention to it if need be.

Other than that I've been catching up on some movies with Adam that we've been putting off watching. We've also been busy playing Lego Batman. Batman seems to be consuming me lately... the video game, the new movie trailer, and my new pop vinyl toy I got for Christmas. How cute does he look with Batgirl?

My favourite superheroes <3

Music has been all over the place for me. I still don't change the song when She & Him's Christmas songs come on my iPod. I sing along to Demi Lovato every time her new single is on the radio and I dance my butt off to Martin Solveig and Dragonette's 'Big in Japan'.

At least I can't complain that I'm bored!

  1. I'm exactly the same way. I get *obsessed* with random pop culture things. Right now, I'm watching the 'The Wonder Years' and loving every minute. Thank you, Netflix! :) Great blog!

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 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 …

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…
