I really enjoy playing games, whether it's console gaming, tabletop, or apps. I grew up playing video games and board games with my family and friends and that love has stayed with me. Now, I'm not very good at console gaming. My favourite games growing up were multi-player games - Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Super Mario World, Mario Kart. That way if I got stuck during cooperative mode, I had a brother to help me through a hard spot or we would just play missions and free for all in the multi-player area. 

As an adult, I still really enjoy all games. And I'm still not very good at them. These are a few games I have recently played and loved!

Disney Tsum Tsum

This game was recommended from a friend. I quickly downloaded the app after reading her email and I was hooked within seconds of the title screen playing. It was SO cute! And I love puzzle games! I can do puzzle games. My skill level is much higher at these types of games. Months later I'm still playing this game and collecting as many characters as I can. I've also been getting friends and family hooked on this game as well. This is beneficial to me because not only can I talk about my obsession with this game and they understand me, but free hearts!

And yes, the Disney store sells Tsum Tsum plushies. My need for a mini Eeyore is strong!

Portal 2

I knew of the Portal games. Adam owned both games and not until a few months ago did I even realize Portal was a puzzle game. Recently he played through the second game and asked me to try out the multi-player part with him. So this led to multiple late nights because we just couldn't stop playing! It was fun and addictive and annoying, all at once. And does it ever hurt your head at some parts. But I really enjoyed it and I'm so happy I played through it and beat it!

Lego Batman 2

Lego games have always been more my speed in video games. The levels are fairly straight forward and the fact that I can smash almost everything in the level is super fun. We recently started Lego Batman 2 and this is the first Lego game I've played where the characters speak. It's so good! The voice actors are awesome! We're not done the game yet but I'm sure we'll be finishing it sooner than later because we're both really enjoying it and we're at the point where we're always 'just going to play one more level' until we realize it's past our bedtime.

I hope you have a great night! It's currently snowing out so I'm predicting more Lego Batman in my very near future.

  1. I also went through a very strong Tsum Tsum phase, although now I've moved on to other Line puzzle games. Too addictive. Rick and I also really enjoyed playing Portal 2 together. I have a feeling we need to check out Lego Batman 2. I enjoyed the first one, but it was tough to play by myself.

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…
