I know it's a day late, but Happy Halloween! I hope you had a great day. It was an interesting day here because we had our first snowfall of the season. I woke up early to be at work for 6 a.m. yesterday morning and there was already quite a bit of snow accumulation but it just kept snowing. By the time I got home from work me and Adam had to shovel our driveway and walkway so children could get to our front door. 

Our front door before, with our Jack-o-lantern bags filled with leaves. 

And after, when the snow was starting to slow down mid-afternoon yesterday. I did my best to wipe the snow off the pumpkins.

 We carved pumpkins the other evening and I put them out once the snow was cleared from the front step.

 I spent the evening in watching Ghostbusters, playing Disney Tsum Tsum, and hanging out with cats while I gave out candy. It was a relaxing evening in and a decent amount of kids came by.

Since we weren't going to a party, I didn't put together a costume this year. However, a closet costume contest was planned for the IGGPPC Halloween Party. I decided to dress as April from Lumberjanes since I could put together a similar outfit from my closet.

I spent some time today buying clearance Halloween candy for me and Adam and also taking down all the Halloween decorations. It's been a fun week watching Halloween movies, dressing up, and carving pumpkins. But let's be honest, I'm beyond excited to get into Christmas-mode!

  1. Ugh. Snow. Already. Hope you had a great Halloween!

    1. Right? And after this snow melted, we got more this week! Thanks! I hope you did too!

  2. Your closet cosplay is super adorable! Happy Halloween! <3

  3. Eep! Christmas :) I've yet to have the chance to hunt down any reduced Halloween sweets, but I',m planning to hit up the supermarket tomorrow xxx

    1. I hope you found lots! I picked up more than I need, well more than my waistline needs anyways.

  4. Ah! You make the best April! And I can't believe you already got snow. It's getting colder out here, but I'm hoping for at least another couple of weeks before snow becomes a concern.

    1. Thank you! And I woke up to more snow again this morning! Winter is here early. I predict a white Christmas this year.

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…
