What I'm Loving Now

Since I've been busy outside a lot lately, I'm not watching as much TV. Though, we have been heading to the movie theatre more regularly for date nights since all the Summer movies are being released. It seems like we'll be going to the movies every week this Summer with all the new movies coming out.

Jurassic World


We finally got the chance to see Jurassic World at the theatre and I really enjoyed it. The story line was predictable and there wasn't much character development, but it was very entertaining. I enjoyed all the actors. Chris Pratt was great and I really liked Jake Johnson (Nick from New Girl). There were plenty of moments where I jumped in my seat or threw my hand over my mouth. It was a very good Summer blockbuster movie.


Inside Out

The first time we went to see Jurassic World, the movie was basically sold out so we decided to see Inside Out instead. I cannot get over how sweet and adorable this movie was. All the different characters were amazing and they all made me laugh. This movie definitely triggered a lot of feelings and I found myself tearing up at numerous parts, but also laughing a lot too. 


The DUFF

I recently finished The DUFF audio book and I really, really liked it. I pretty much got the audio book because I want to see the movie because Mae Whitman is in it. The book surprised me. I enjoyed the bluntness of the writing and it felt more realistic than some of the sugar-coated YA high school books. I can now get around to watching the movie. 


What movies and books have you been into lately?

  1. I wanna see both Jurassic World and Inside Out! We'll probably have to wait until they're at the dollar theater though. To be honest, I'm more of a wait-for-DVD / DirectTV kind of person, but I would l-o-v-e to see Jurassic World on the big screen!!!

    The last movie we watch was Aladdin. ♥ Yay Disney! Before that, Jen surprised me with How To Train Your Dragon 2. I love the HTTYD series, so much. I can't even begin to describe.

    Book wise, I'm mainly a manga person! I'm reading Fushigi Yugi right now and it's so good. :o

  2. I'm so excited to see Inside Out, but it won't hit theaters over here until the end of August, so I'll have to wait. Boo! Watching Jurassic Park next week, though. I hope it isn't too scary (it probably is, heh).

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…
