To Do List: February


It's crazy February is here already. Winter is half over! But there's no sign of it slowing down. Our Winter has been a little weird. Mild temperatures and tons of snow. This means our usual ice skating adventures aren't as easy to do since the rinks get closed when the weather is too mild. But all the snow is giving us other opportunities. 

February To Do List:
  • Snowshoeing! We have found two places that rent out snowshoes and we clearly have more than enough snow to do this Winter activity so we're planning on heading out at least once this month to try it. 
  • Hikes. The snow does make everything look beautiful. The trees are covered in snow and they look so glittery. And with the mild temperatures, we won't freeze our butts off on a hike.
  • Bake! This month is Valentine's Day, Deadpool is released, and it's Pokemon's anniversary. I have so much themed-baking to do. Plus, I've started the food activities up on IGGPPC and I have lots of food to share and make!
  • Sew. Next month is my first comic convention of the year and I have a giant sewing to-do list!
  • Be healthy! The last couple of months have been hard - I haven't been sleeping well and my healthy eating has subsided. I need to turn things around because I'm feeling like crap a lot of days. 

What are your plans for February?

  1. I hope you manage to get some sleep, love. Sounds like plenty of fresh air and hiking will tire you out in a good way though :) Here's to some quality zzz's xxx

  2. Sounds like we have very similar goals. I'm also trying to get Rick to go snowshoeing with me, but he seems nervous about it for some reason. We also heard about a private park outside of town that has a winding ice rink path through a forest that we really want to try out. We've also been trying out Culiniste for about a month and it's done wonders for our dietary habits. I'm pretty impressed so far.

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…
