Weekly Adventures

So I spent my first full week in Sudbury. We've done a little bit of exploring, got attacked by mosquitoes, unpacked 95% of the boxes, put up shelves, and done some shopping. It's feeling more like home and I'm enjoying how quiet our building is.

I had a very productive and fun weekend here. On Friday we had another IGGPPC Google Hangout, which you can watch here. Unfortunately Emma wasn't able to do it with us because of the time difference and she was sleeping!

Afterwards, Adam and I ventured out to our local Silvercity for a movie date. The theatre was unbelievably packed but it made sense. Man of Steel, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Now You See Me, and This Is The End are all out right now! We decided on seeing This Is The End.

The movie was hilarious! I mean, there were a few parts that were just silly and very much toilet-humour. But overall, I laughed for the majority of the movie and the ending made be tear-up because I was laughing so hard. I forgot how much I love Seth Rogen and his interaction with Jay Baruchel was funny and really cute.

On Saturday, Round 5 registration opened up for International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. If you're looking to connect with a geek from around the world and to send and receive an awesome geek-filled package, register now before it fills up. We're only taking 500 registrants this round. You can register here.

Tonight, I'm spending my evening in watching Captain America with Adam and then updating my Etsy shop.

I hope you had a great weekend!

  1. I have been wanting to go and see THis is the End. I am glad you thought it was funny, makes the movie more promising! Sounds like you had a great weekend.

  2. I saw 2 words. Captain America.

  3. I want to see This Is The End. I'm not a huge fan for those guys, but it looks really funny. Here in Australia, heaps of people have been complaining about it because apparently it's anti-female. But it's a funny movie. If it was suppose to be serious, there may be a problem, but it's suppose to be funny. I'm still excited! :) I really just want to see Emma Watson bash Seth Rogan!

  4. Well done unpacking so quickly- very glad to hear it's feeling like home already :) Although not so sure about the mosquitoes- viscious little things! xxx

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…
