What I'm Loving Now

I just finished watching the third season of Pretty Little Liars. This show is such a guilty pleasure for me. I honestly don't really know anyone else who watches it. It's just so addicting and this season was no different. As usual, I was hooked within a few episodes. It's the whole not trusting all the characters' innocence that gets to me. I have to keep watching episode after episode to know what's going to happen!

Me and Adam are also re-watching the first season of Archer since he got it on blu-ray. That show is so hilarious and if you haven't watched it, do it! When I initially started the show, I was iffy on it but after a few episodes and getting to know the characters, I loved it. It's such a funny show and I'm picking up even more hilarious lines watching it a second time.

Ok, I know you're all probably so annoyed with my hair talk because I feel like every two months I'm itching for a change. I'm back on a bangs kick. I blame Veronica Mars... damn her sassy side bangs in season two! I think I've finally decided that I'm going to get them at the end of August. I figure I can handle them for a few weeks during the end of summer. And then I'll be able to enjoy them in the Fall without a sweaty forehead.

Since moving, we've been shopping at a different grocery store because apparently moving 5 hours up North means we don't have the same grocery stores up here... a few of them are the same and then there are a couple I've never heard of. But the store we ALWAYS shopped at, isn't up here. Anyways, the store we've been shopping at carries these Japanese Buns. When I found them in the bakery the first time I was so excited. I've tried two different types now and they are delicious! They're cheap too at only 99 cents a piece. It's a yummy treat that's not overly sweet.
Coconut Bun
The most delicious treat I found at the grocery store today. It had a creamy coconut filling! 

Custard Bun
  Today's treat: custard bun!! #nomnomnom #utanebread #japanesebun

I came across this song on the weekend and it's basically been on repeat all week... it's so upbeat and dancey and catchy. I love it and it will be on my iPod for my next drive down to Hamilton so I can do some car dancing!

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…
