Current Obsessions

So much of my time lately has been spent sewing because I have Wizard World coming up. And because of this, I have been watching a ton of TV.

I've been re-watching Batman The Animated Series while I sew. It's crazy how much I remember of this show from my childhood. The animation style and characters really are timeless. It looks like it could be a recent show and not 20 years old. I'm loving it and also feeling a little old now too.

I'm still watching Bones Season 4 and I started Season 8 of One Tree Hill as well. Both of these seasons are new to me so they've been distracting me while I attempt to iron or fold pillowcases. I'm also slowly watching Season 1 of My Little Pony-Friendship is Magic. I have to give this show all of my attention because it's the visual that I love the most about it. Whereas with Bones, I adore the dialogue and chemistry with the characters so I can look at what I'm ironing. But not with Friendship is Magic. It's so insanely cute.

Me and Adam recently started watching Archer. We were told be numerous people to give the show a chance. We just started the second season and it's hilarious. It took me a little while to get there but we're both enjoying it.

As for books, I finished Catching Fire over a couple of weeks ago. I haven't purchased Mockingjay yet so I started Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I'm enjoying the book and I can see why they want to turn it into a movie. The concept is pretty interesting and so far I find it entertaining.

I'm currently going through our gigantic X-Men comics collection. I'm finally reading comics from Fall/Winter of '89. I swear I will catch up one day. I just have to keep up on reading a comic or two every day. I absolutely love the conversations that I have with Adam while reading these comics.

Other than that, I haven't found any other new obsessions. I'm still listening to Florrie and for some reason when I saw that Motion City Soundtrack has a new CD coming out, I got pretty pumped for that.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

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…
