Spring Wishlist

The weather in Southern Ontario over the past week has been beautiful. It feels like Spring! Most days I've been able to go without a sweater and today I was happy to wear a dress without tights.

Even though I believe we could easily get another snowfall before Winter is up, this weather has me thinking of Spring clothes. I've been eyeing up new clothes online and in store for the Spring and Summer season.

To be honest, I can't make a wishlist of new clothes from a site like Modcloth. The reality is, it's just not in my budget. I can only treat myself to a dress from that site a couple times a year. I need to be looking at clothes that will fit into my budget, especially since some stores at my local mall normally have great sales and have discount codes for online or in-store shopping. This is why most of the clothes I'm wanting right now are from stores like Old Navy and H&M.

I'm so in love with this print!

I also have to get myself some denim capris for Spring. Last year I was working in an office so I wore dresses and skirts everyday. Now, working in a toy store, I live in jeans at work. But I definitely would like to get something else to wear once it gets warm outside.

Next week, me and Adam are heading across the border for a day to do some shopping in the U.S. I'm so excited to hit up Target! I'm sure I'll be picking up a few geeky shirts between Target and Hot Topic. My fingers are crossed that I can find a Hunger Games and Avengers t-shirt.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It's back to work tomorrow for me. But, it's officially countdown time until I get to see The Hunger Games!

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…
