What I'm Loving Now

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend! I'm actually off this weekend which is lovely. Spending time with my boys and Mr. and getting things done around the house is exactly what I needed. We're making Christmas plans, working out Christmas gift details, and doing some decorating. 

Wookie Cookies

One thing I've been planning is what Christmas baking I want to do. I'm a huge fan of gingerbread cookies, and the idea of turning some of them into Wookies is extremely tempting. 


House Decorating

After much discussion and numerous furniture store visits, it looks like we've settled on a couch to buy for our basement family room. Because I know the colour of the couch, I've been doing some online window shopping to get ideas for how to make the rest of the family room extra cozy since it'll be our main TV/movie/gaming room. I've settled on this colour scheme. 


Ready Player One

I've been busy lately with sewing and cleaning and getting the house ready for Christmas decorations, so I recently flew through the Ready Player One audio book. I cannot recommend this book enough! It was so good and completely surpassed my expectations. Wil Wheaton narrates the book and he does such a good job. The story line is incredibly interesting and the pop culture references were great! The writing is so descriptive that I could see the world the character was in. Seriously, read this book!


What have you been loving lately?

  5. Ready Player One really surprised me too. As someone who has never played video games I was expecting not to enjoy it, but I absolutely loved it!! The 80's references probably helped, as it's my favourite kind of music :) xxx

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 …

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 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…
