What I'm Loving Now

So Christmas is less than two weeks away which is kind of crazy. I'm feeling the last minute stress to get things done on time - wrapping gifts, filling out Christmas cards, squeezing in as much baking as I can.

Star Wars

Not only do I have a big Christmas to-do list, but I also gave myself a to-watch list this month as well. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, comes out next week so we decided to rewatch all of the other Star Wars movies. We watched Episodes 1-3 over the last couple of weeks. I never realized how whiny and annoying Anakin is. But Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi definitely makes up for the creepiness of Anakin. Last night we watched 'A New Hope' and will be fitting in the last two movies during the upcoming week. I'm sure there's other households feeling the normal Christmas stress and excitement but also itching to finally see The Force Awakens. It's pulling my emotions and excitement in different directions!


Garfunkel and Oates

Since TV shows have been starting their Winter holiday hiatus, I've caught up on the shows I watch without Adam. So I started a new show on Netflix, Garfunkel and Oates. 

"Garfunkel and Oates centers on the aspirations and misadventures of the female comedy-folk duo Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates), and will spotlight the personal and professional lives of the duo whose career choices – singing satirical and sometimes dirty songs – leaves them with little in common with their peers, and no one but each other to turn to for support and understanding."

I had heard of this show thanks to tumblr and I knew the two main actresses. Well, I flew through the 8 episodes and I'm so sad there's no other seasons. The guest stars and the hilarious songs were so entertaining! It was a really fun show. 


What shows and movies have you been enjoying?

  1. Hope you enjoy the new Star Wars offering - do you know, I think I have to one of the few on Earth that hasn't seen one of them! When folks start talking about it, I'm lost after a few minutes!

  2. Garfunkle and Oates is one of my faves! I was pretty bummed their show got cancelled. BUT they have lots of great stuff on their Youtube and I heard they came out with a new album recently. Those two are just my faves!

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…
