Red, Pink, and Hearts

It's hard to believe Valentine's Day is next week. It marks the half way point in February which just seems crazy. This year has been moving at a fast pace for me.

I will be busy next week at work because of Valentine's Day. But I plan on getting in some baking this week. Sugar cookies and cherry cupcakes are on my to-bake list. After drooling over some photos online, I'm also itching to make some doughnuts as well.

Homemade treats are definitely one of the best gifts that I can give Adam for Valentine's Day, which is perfect since the holidays always encourage me to bake! My love for baking and his sweet tooth are a perfect combination!

Are you making anything special for Valentine's Day?

  1. Those milkshakes look so yummy. Everything on this post looks yummy! The donuts look fun, and I've never made donuts before, so I'd love to try that. =0)
    We'll be baking a variety of cookies for Valentine's Day. Those chocolate cookies up there with the heart sprinkles might be given a vote (we're choosing which cookies to make over the weekend).

  2. How delicious! Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pics. Baking yummy goodies is such a great idea for valentines day. Who could say no to that!


  3. I'm making a geeky cross stitch for my bf for valentines and I bought him tickets to a comedy show too as he agreed to pay for most of a new sewing machine for me yipeeee! It's also our 10 year anniversary this month so we are off out for dinner.

    You have made me want to bake sugar cookies now too ;-)

  6. Kyle, myself, and some friends of ours are all on a weightloss challenge, so no baked goods for me, but these do look awesome!

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…
