What I'm Loving Now

I've been slowly getting back into my routine since the holidays are over now. I'm back to reading regularly and listening to my audio books. I've also been playing more video games with Adam.

Yes Please

Earlier this week I finished the Yes Please audio book. I was itching to listen to this book since Amy is the narrator and it did not let me down. I laughed out loud quite a few times and I just really appreciated Amy's honesty throughout the book. I found it very interesting and it was really cool seeing a bit into her life. If you're a fan of Amy Poehler, I definitely recommend this book, especially the audio book so you can hear Amy and all the funny voices she puts on. Plus, there's a few really fun guest narrators as well.

Soul Calibur V

We finally finished up Lego Batman 2 this week, but we've been squeezing in some rounds in Soul Calibur V over the last few weeks. Adam was playing this game and he introduced me to the creation part of it. Making my own characters was so much fun! Adam made quite the roster of characters as well. Let's just say we were fighting a lot as DragonBall Z and X-Men characters. Though, I had flashbacks the entire time playing this game because Adam kept telling me I was a button masher and I was being cheap. Oh, the memories of being told the same thing by my brothers while playing Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter growing up. I can't help that my button mashing allows me to beat you!

Binocular Bag

I can't say that I've had an itch for Spring yet. I'm still looking forward to so many Winter activities (skating in particular). But the Kate Spade email I received the other day did make me think some happy Spring thoughts. Look at this Flights Of Fancy Binocular Bag! It's perfect!

What have you been loving lately?

  1. Soul Calibur V looks fun! Love games with a creation element. Might have to give it a go :)

  2. I love the binocular bag!!!

    1. It's so adorable! It'd be perfect for picnics and walks.

  3. I was also told I was a button masher, mostly by boys after I beat them. My reply was generally hey if it works for me maybe you should try it.
    Only one guy ever took me up on that and that was an awesome Mortal Kombat fight. We laughed so hard as our characters jumped crazily around the screen.

    1. Exactly! If it works, who cares? They were just mad about me beating them haha. Button mashing does lead to a lot of twitchy movements.

  4. I love the Batgirl you/Adam made :) I've heard so many good things about Yes Please- I really need to get a copy xxx

    1. It's an excellent book. Very inspiring and motivating. She's a kickass lady.

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…
