Veronica Mars the Movie

Years ago I heard about a TV show that had just started airing, Veronica Mars. I quickly raced to my computer and downloaded the first couple of episodes of the first season immediately to check out the show. I was in love! Veronica was everything I wanted and needed in a character. She was strong, independent, kickass, and an outsider. Quickly, Veronica Mars became somewhat of a role model to me. I religiously watched the episodes on TV and would just take in every detail of the show. I adored the music and I remember when I first heard Tegan and Sara on the show and how happy that made me. I also enjoyed seeing all the guest stars on the show.

Now, fast forward to present day and I still re-watch my Veronica Mars boxsets. I'm always sad and disappointed when the third season finishes because it leaves so many loose ends.

But I can say that after watching Veronica Mars the Movie, I finally feel satisfied. Even though the movie doesn't start where the TV show left off, they do a great job of summarizing and explaining what's happened in the last seven years.

I don't want to give away any spoilers, but if you're a Veronica Mars fan, you'll probably love the movie. It's everything I ever wanted in a Veronica Mars movie. It honestly felt like a really long episode. But that's a good thing. They didn't change what worked for the show.

There were moments throughout the movie where I felt emotional (at parts that weren't supposed to trigger tears) or I found myself laughing at parts that weren't exceptionally funny. I just felt overwhelmed seeing some of the characters and hearing some of the one-liners come out of their mouths. The movie flared up some nostalgia for me.

Just seeing the cast back together and hearing Veronica and Keith's witty one-liners made me feel so much comfort. I'm actually excited to watch it again, which I think will be happening before bed tonight...

I'm sure if you're a fan you've already seen the movie or are planning on seeing it soon. When you see it, let me know what you thought!

Good night marshmallows!

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…
