Fangirl News

This past weekend was San Diego Comic Con and as usual so much news came out of that convention - trailers, casting announcements, and panels with movies and TV shows where details were spilled.

* A bunch of trailers were released over the weekend and the Deadpool trailer excited me the most. It looks like Ryan Reynolds did it - he's made a R-rated Deadpool movie and it makes me so happy! Now, my expectations have been set high for this movie so let's hope it doesn't disappoint!

* There was also a panel for X-Men: Apocalypse and they showed a trailer/clips put together from what they've filmed so far which made me fangirl when I watched it. Seeing a mohawk-sporting Storm, a bald James McAvoy, and hearing Magneto say 'who the fuck are you?' made me squee!

* 'Lumberjanes' won multiple Eisner awards, including 'Best New Series' and it just makes my heart swell. This series has become easily one of my favourites and I love how far it's come.

* Over the weekend, Paul Feig also tweeted a photo of the ladies in their Ghostbusters jumpsuits on set and now I need a jumpsuit so bad! Can I just cosplay as Melissa McCarthy's character for all cons?!? Jumpsuit, messy top bun and black glasses!

* Fan Expo Canada announced two Harry Potter guests this week - Tom Felton and Bonnie Wright have been added, so along with the Phelps twins there's a mini-Harry Potter reunion happening there and it makes me incredibly excited.

* It's funny this Harry Potter news came up this week because I also recently found out about Potterweek which Common Room has organized. It's a one week Harry Potter link up for blogs, podcasts, and all social media really. So now I just want to marathon the Harry Potter movies and come up with Harry Potter-themed treats.

It's been a fantastic week of geek news and it has started some very animated and intense conversations at home with Adam as we dissect movie trailers, discuss comic book news, and brainstorm Harry Potter treats. 

I hope your week has been treating you well!

  1. I'm SO excited for Deadpool. I'm hoping the new Ghostbusters movie will be good. I don't really care that it's all female, I'd prefer a mix, but eh. I adore some of the ladies, so.

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…
