What I'm Loving Now

Lately I've been finding a ton of inspiration from movies and television shows I'm watching. Me and Adam have been squeezing in a lot of movies since it's just so cold out and it gets dark so early. And with the Olympics on, a lot of shows we watch are not airing currently. So I've been left with my specialty channel shows - The Walking Dead and HBO's Girls. But first up, my favourite thing at the moment is...

The Lego Movie

Please tell me you've seen this movie?!? It was great! Visually, it was amazing to see how much work went into this movie and to see all the little Lego bricks making up every scene. The voice actors and characters were hilarious and matched up perfectly! I really enjoyed the movie from start to finish.

One of my favourite things about the movie was how they portrayed Batman. First of all, Will Arnett has the perfect Batman voice. But the song... oh man, I can't stop laughing at it. If you haven't seen the movie yet, go see it!


I've really liked HBO's Girls since it first started. I really enjoy the writing and how close to home some of the characters and situations hit for me. But the third season has been really awesome so far. I really like every character's story at the moment and I like where the show is headed.

In the last episode I watched there was a choreographed dance scene. I'm not going to lie, I'm tempted to learn the dance, especially after finding this video on Pinterest. 


Don't get me wrong, cupcakes still have my heart. But I've been seeing recipes everywhere for the yummiest-sounding donuts. And then we picked up some delicious donuts on our road trip last weekend. The simple and fun design of a round donut with sprinkles has been a favourite of mine since I was introduced to My Paper Crane 10 years ago. But it's making a comeback in my life again. Like this Kate Spade tee for instance - adorable!

I hope you're having a fantastic 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…
