Christmas Around The House

Tomorrow is the first day of December which means no one can look at me funny when I talk about Christmas movies, sing along to Christmas songs, or post pictures of my Christmas decorations! Honestly, our decorations have been up for about three weeks now and our tree was put up two weeks ago. Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, so I see no reason to hold off on decorating for my favourite holiday once Halloween is over.

We've been picking up more ornaments when we go out shopping. The Mario ornaments were a set of 4 that we just bought at EB Games. We've also been eyeing up some Marvel and Star Wars ones from Hallmark so I'm sure we'll be adding some more over the month of December. The bottom picture is of my Rudolph Pop! Vinyls I've collected so far. I really, really want Bumble but I haven't seen him in any stores unfortunately.

Are you decorated for Christmas or do you wait until it's closer to the holiday?

  1. I'm working on my now....I have 13-35 gallon totes full of stuff I've collected over the years. I love this time of year!

  2. Ooooh, your tree is so beautiful, Jen. I love all the colors!

  3. Your Mario decorations are so cool! I've been wanting to decorate for weeks, but my fiancé is a total grinch and wouldn't let me. But, now that it's officially December my tree is going up tomorrow. M so excited, I Ove Christmas!

    1. My husband prefers if I wait until December for full-on Christmas mode but I can't keep it contained in November.

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…
