To Do List: May

May is here and Spring is in full-swing! We've had days upon days of sunshine and +20 degree Celsius weather. We've been spending time outside - walking, barbecuing, pulling weeds. It's be lovely.

Here are some things I'd like to do in May:
- hike at Laurentian Conservation Area
- go for walks along the boardwalk at Bell Park
- prep the gardens for vegetables, flowers, and shrubs
- go on a small road trip outside the city

I'm itching to start planting things outside but we still have to wait until the end of the month/beginning of June before the possibility of frost goes away. For now I may just buy some more indoor plants and find some adorable planters to put them in. I'm dreaming of a window sill of cactus (the cats ignore them luckily).

For now, I'm heading out to do errands, hit up a couple of places for Free Comic Book Day, and pick up a s'mores Frappuccino! It's a beautiful day to drive with my windows down and music playing loudly.

Have a good weekend!

  1. I hope you have a nice weekend!

  2. We have so much planting to do, but we also have to wait until June! Pretty cacti. ^_^ I can't believe we missed Free Comic Book Day, urrrrrrgh. I'm the worst with remembering events!

    1. June is so close though... we can plant soon!

  3. First off, I am seriously disappointed that free comic book day doesn't happen in my life! :(
    Mostly though, I love the idea of having a little to do list on your blog! I've heard if you state something in a public place, you're more likely to do it! haha, I might have to try doing that myself!
    I'm jealous of all of your planting too, my garden needs some serious love!

    1. I think it's my husband's want to garden that's rubbing off on me.

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…
