Weekly Adventures

What an awesomely (I don't believe that's a word but spell check doesn't highlight it either...) busy week! Other than the day job, I've been busy working on IGGPPC things. Our First House Competition was announced and it's been so much fun! We're still figuring out the rules as we go but being that it's our first competition, the future ones will only be better once we work all the kinks out.

The third round for registering for a pen pal opens up April 15th! I'm super excited to start matching up pen pals! How cute is the design?

I also went to see The Host earlier this week. It was ok. I never read the book so I had no expectations going into it. The first part of the movie seemed super cheesy but as the movie went on, I got into the storyline and started liking the characters. I was happy to see Jake Abel was in the movie. He wasn't in Supernatural much but I have a soft spot for any Winchester boy.

Tonight I'm going to a Clothing Swap that my cousin is hosting. I am beyond excited! I had one a few years back and it was so nice trading clothes and accessories with other ladies. I got some new (to me) clothes that I was really happy about. And I'm hoping tonight is the same!

I just whipped up a brownie batter dip that I had found on Pinterest. Oh my... it's so yummy! It's the exact consistency of a cake or brownie batter but it's eggless! I cannot wait to dip pretzels into it and just devour the bowl by myself... I mean share with others... if it makes it there tonight.

Brownie batter dip for tonight's clothing swap *drool*

I hope everyone had a lovely week! I'm off to finish going through my clothes for tonight...

  1. How did you get on at the clothes swap?

    That brownie dip looks dangerously good!


    1. I came home with a couple of casual dresses, some tank tops and a couple of pajama pants that I'm excited about ^_^

  2. I love a clothes swap! Or swish as they call it here. I got an amazing silk vintage dress last time I went to one.

    Yum to the dip! Might have to fly over just to help you finish it (it looks like plenty) hehe x

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…
