2016 Movies Watch List - Part 1

In January I always pull up the 'Coming Soon' section on Tribute to look at the list of movies coming to theatres that year. I get really excited when I realize how soon movies that I've been looking forward to will be out or when a movie is listed that I didn't realize was finished production.

This year, I added all the movies I want to see in theatre to my planner. Why? So when I look at a month I can get excited knowing a movie date is in my future and also to plan some themed-baking projects. And let me tell you, there are a ton of good movies coming out in 2016.

These are the movies that top my 2016 list from January to July:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

"In this wild reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale set in the 19th century, scrappy martial arts specialist Elizabeth Bennet and the very wealthy Mr. Darcy are true opposites — however, equally prideful and prejudiced.
But in the face of an unknown and dangerous plague, the two must cast aside their different social classes in order to deal with their tangled romantic relationship — and fight off an army of undead zombies."
I've read the book and ever since I heard it was being made into a movie I've been excited for it. And it's finally coming out!

"The origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life."

Let's be honest, what comic book fan isn't looking forward to this movie?! Ryan Reynolds seems to be the perfect person to play Deadpool. I just hope I won't be disappointed.

"Tensions rise between Steve Rogers and the other Avengers when global governments initiate an act to regulate all superhuman activity."
I'm very curious to see this movie. There are a ton of characters in this movie, some new and some from other Marvel movies, and I want to see how they fit them into the story line.

X-Men: Apocalypse
"As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven, with the help of Professor X, must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their nemesis, the villainous En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse."
It's no secret that I'm a big X-Men fan so I'm definitely looking forward to this movie and I'm especially interested in seeing how the new cast and characters work out. 

"One year after her journey with Nemo, Dory is on an adventure to find her family. They are finally reunited but not after everyone learns a few things about the meaning of family from the adventure."
I think everyone who loved Finding Nemo has been patiently waiting for this movie to come out. Dory was one of the standout characters in Finding Nemo and I'm very excited to see this movie which follows Dory.

"Authors Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates write a book in which they claim that ghosts exist. A few years later, Erin lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but when her book resurfaces, she becomes a joke within the academic world.
That changes when ghosts invade Manhattan, and Erin and Abby reunite in order to get together a team to save the world."
I am SO excited for this movie! The fact that it's Ghostbusters, written and directed by Paul Feig and stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig makes me so incredibly hopeful that this movie will be amazing. 

Just re-reading this list makes me super excited for all my future movie dates. What movies are you looking forward to?

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…
