My Life In Photos

Since upgrading to a new phone (the LG G4) I've been taking more photos than normal since I now have a phone with a better camera than my previous Galaxy S4. So please forgive my photo spamming this Summer.

With that being said, here are my photos from the last few weeks...

I squeezed in a last minute trip to Canada's Wonderland with a friend last week. It was so much fun, though I forgot how nauseous rollercoasters can make me. It was still a great day though and it ended with an amazing funnel cake and a drive home filled with singing in the car.

We've already been to the beach a couple times this month and it's been beautiful. One night we just went in the water up to our knees but last weekend we went right in and the water was surprisingly warm. 

So this picture happened because I didn't realize my camera was in 'selfie' mode. I thought I was taking photos of the lake. I was super confused on our drive home looking through photos. It was too sunny to see the screen when I was taking the photos so I had no idea I was getting pictures of myself.

We hit up Silver Bullet for burgers and fries after our beach day and it was delicious. It's easily one of my favourite places to grab food in the Summer.

Logan looking especially cute.

Seymore being a dork 'hiding' in his tent.

After rewatching the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie I had to find green nail polish like Megan Fox's in that movie. I found the perfect shade and I'm obsessed!

Trades I'm reading right now. I picked up the Black Widow book at Graphic-Con earlier in the month.

S'moreos have made their way to Canada! Though, I've only spotted them in one store (Shoppers Drug Mart), which is odd since it's a drugstore. But I won't complain. I got s'moreos for the Summer.

Speaking of s'mores, Mighty Canadian Doughnuts had s'mores as their flavour of the month and it was so good! The doughnut was cut in half, marshmallow spread was put in between, then Hershey chocolate is melted on top with a marshmallow in the middle. Yum!

How was June for you? I'm pretty excited for upcoming plans for the rest of the Summer. It's turning out to be a pretty great couple of months.

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…
