We spent Easter weekend with family very near Elk Island National Park, so on Saturday afternoon we packed up the babies (Emery and her baby girl cousin), our stroller and hiking backpack and went exploring.

I have so many fun family/easter/adventure-y moments to share with you, but it's the end of the semester and I can't seem to pry the laptop away from my husband (school trumps blog in terms of computer priority apparently <thumbs down>). In fact I have a final essay of my... Continue reading

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling : SUPER funny read. Very lighthearted, easy to get into and laugh out loud funny. Made me want to re-watch every episode of The Office (which we do anyways). Reading this book combatted the sleepless middle-of-the-night new mommy blues for me.... Continue reading

I've marked on the calendar 8, 6 and 4 weeks to last frost for starting all of our vegetables from seeds. This week was the 8 week mark so out came the tomatoes, chili peppers, garlic chive and onion seeds! We've set up a folding table in our kitchen window... Continue reading

I've been joining my mom for water aerobics one night a week and making a real night-off out of it by lane swimming for 45 minutes first. I crash into bed afterwards (at least when Emery feels like going down easy haha). Usually either my husband or one of my... Continue reading

The last bit of snow from (hopefully) the last big dump of snow of the year is nearly melted away. Spring really is springing (I think!). I'm going with it, anyways. Packing up boots, hanging winter coats in the spare room closet and going on dates to Canadian Tire. Are... Continue reading

In my opinion, photos on the wall make a house a home! Not long after Emery was born, my husband hung up a little gallery wall in our dining room and I sit at the table every day staring at it and remembering our favorite moments! I also love seeing... Continue reading

I'm very into taking apart old clothes to sew something new out of them right now. Thankfully, I'm a hoarder when it comes to clothes and have held onto a lot of items from junior high and high school that are in desperate need of some re-purposing! These headbands are... Continue reading

I baked this camp-themed birthday cake for a true outdoors man (and chocolate lover!), my father in law. There's no such thing as too grown up for themed birthday cakes, right?? Baking this got me SO excited for all the themed birthdays in Emery's future. I used this recipe from... Continue reading

She's my girl, alright! Peanut butter and apple slices is my go-to snack. I eat it atleast once a day, and today was Emery's first time sharing it with me. After a week of being sick and not trying out any new solid foods, this snack was an extra special... Continue reading

These muffins have become a favorite of mine! Probably because they have healthy ingredients that make me feel good to eat, plus they're hearty and seedy and full of goodness that keeps me full longer (something I am always in the quest for). Healthy Oatmeal Chia Seed Muffin Recipe: 1... Continue reading

The local Christian radio station hosted a family ski night at the hill last weekend. It was a warmish night and much slower than a normal weekend night, especially on the non-green runs. My parents joined us and we rotated through watching Emery in the chalet. If she was fussy... Continue reading

Blend together: a big handful of spinach leaves 1 cup orange juice 1 granny smith apple 1/2 banana 1... Continue reading

Thanks Lindi! We went on a sunny +3 degree day which helped! Inside her snowsuit she's in a fleece onesie as well, so she felt toasty all day :)

We took our girl on a day trip to Tumbler Ridge over reading week to snowshoe into one of our favourite waterfalls in the area, Quality Falls. We didn't see any other humans but there were some crusted tracks in the snow. It was so refreshing to get out just... Continue reading
