My Life In Photos

May was probably the fastest month of the year so far. I think it's because we started the month off coming back from our trip to NYC. We had catching up to do when we got home and then I had to plan for my Mom's birthday and I had to finish up comic con prep. It was a super busy month.

We didn't bring too many treats home from our trip to New York City. But the few things we brought home were super yummy! I loved the M&Ms!

I had to work on May the 4th but I celebrated by wearing my Star Wars shirt underneath my work shirt. 

We walked to Mac's Convenience on one of the warm days for Frosters (slurpees). I thoroughly enjoyed the description of this particular flavour for some reason...

I cleaned our balcony and the chairs on it since it's finally nice enough to sit outside. We let the cats out for the first time on there and it was pretty adorable. They were both very curious and sniffed every inch of the balcony.

The downfall of letting them experience the balcony is they want out all the time now! Logan will even shoot past me when I open the door. But when they're not trying to ninja there way onto the balcony, you can usually find them in front of the screen door. 

But how can I get mad at this guy for sprinting onto the balcony constantly...

We had pancakes one morning we were both off together. And I've adapted Adam's way of eating them... with sprinkles!

So if you follow Teavana on twitter, you know they have contests every Friday. Well I entered one morning that I was home and I actually won! I was shocked to find that I won a mug along with two teas!

I love that my hair has gotten significantly longer since last Summer but I'm so feeling the weight of it! It's so hot on my neck. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be wearing a ponytail for the majority of the Summer months. I haven't done a high pony tail since high school but it's become my favourite go-to style every morning. 

This nail polish is SO old but I love the colour! I gave myself my first pedicure of the year with this colour. 

Toe nails are painted and I tried on my new wet look leggings I got in the mail. I'd love to use them for cosplay or some everyday cosplay outfits. 

How was May for you? Are you ready for Summer? There are some really fun events coming up over the next couple of months which are making me very excited for this Summer.

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…
