Spreading Cheer

Christmas has come & gone for another year. This always makes me sad; it means new years is soon and another year comes to a close. 

It was our little man’s first festive season & the hubby and I were super excited. We didn’t want to set up crazy expectations for future Christmases, so we gifted more useful items – food pouches, soothers & soother straps, a touque because it’s super cold here, and the like. Of course there was a toy or two from us, but extended family definitely spoiled him in that department.

Little man got a good few developmental toys  –  alphabets, shape blocks, a toy to promote crawling. My parents surprised both their grandbabies (my niece & my son) with a sled each! Hubby has already added straps and a buckle, and we took little man for a stroll down the street & back. It was quite blustery that day, so we didn’t stay out too long. 

I mentioned on my last post that U waa hoping to have enough time to make mommy & me matching outfits. I’m happy to announce that i finished them just in time. I didn’t get a great photo, but I did snap this on my phone:

I used the Alleycat Romper pattern from Lil&Luxe for Kasper’s duds and I used the SFR pattern from Patterns for Pirates for my shirt.

I can see many more of each in my sewing future! Stick around for more photos and sewing projects!

This last week has been quite the adventure – very busy, but with all great lovely things. I was eager to begin the work week to really get the ball rolling because I had my first week-day off since coming back from ‘modified duty’ post surgery. Needless to say (but i’m obviously saying it anyways) I was PUMPED for my day off.

…but I had to get there first…

Bridal Shower for Becca

Well folks, I did it. I survived the back-to-back-to-back (to back to back!) weekends of wedding adventures!! From weddings for friends, to bridal showers and a bachelorette party for my sister, I’ve come out the other side. Somewhat exhausted and not –really– looking forward to a crazy full work week, but we’re back to sorts soon enough and only about six weeks to go until my big sister’s big day!

A Celebration of Love

Hello Again darlings! Two posts in two days, I must be doing something right, eh?

This is going to be very light on words, but heavy on emotion and romance. I am happy to say that i’ve finished editing the video clips from the wedding my hubby and I attended two weekends ago. You can check out this post here to see a few photos that I took during the event. Otherwise, if you’re feeling ALL the feels, take a look-see at the video I created for my two amazing friends…

 

Hope you two darlings LOVE it — I sure enjoyed editing the footage. I really hope it helps you to remember all the magic that went into your big day. Thank you SO much for including us!!!

*Coming up soon: Another Bridal Shower!

Feeling all the feels.

Sometimes life can get ridiculously overwhelming. Like hella crazy where you don’t even think there’s time to catch your thoughts before they’re running all mad like again. Right now my life feels a LOT like that.

Blogging is a great outlet for all of those thoughts that get swirled around inside our heads when we’re overwhelmed and losing it a little bit. Today’s post will be an expression of thoughts – a way for my to purge my mind of a little too much turmoil.

Time Well Spent

Warning: NOT a short post today! haha is it ever??

Does anyone else feel like there is a push to do more/be more/have more?? That more often than not, we’re constantly pushing to accomplish more and more in less time? Quite frequently I feel like I have to give something up in order to take on a new adventure because there is just too much going on.

Stormy Skies

Hey lovelies!

Just about to get ready to head over to my sister’s engagement party. I thought I’d do a very quick update full of snapshots from the crazy storm that passed through Friday evening. 

It was the first time I’d ever seen a decent shelf cloud – gorgeous! I really got super excited, so much so that the hubby and I toddled off to the end of our street to catch a better view. I’m only uploading the photos I took with my phone right now. Hopefully tomorrow ill have time to edit photos from a few recent adventures. 

Stay tuned and check back often to see:

  • More bridal shower adventure prep
  • Engagement photos & mini film
  • Ontario storm (pics/video)
  • Pig roast party 

Look out below for a fun cellphone pic or two. Video coming soon! 

Second photo is (c) The Hubby . You can see our awesome neighbors out front too.

Obviously we took shelter on our front porch once it got intense. Didn’t rain as much as we would’ve liked (poor grass), but ill take what I can get. 

Did anyone else get a good summer storm? Let me know in the comments! Id love to see photos or videos of your crazy weather. 

Til next time!

Just a quick little (i’m not sure i’ll ever legit write a ‘little post’ hahah) update today – I’m pretty sure my sister doesn’t yet know I even have a blog.. which for today’s post is actually quite awesome.

I managed to take a few short video clips while we were shooting the engagement photos and i’m currently muddling my way through “iMovie” to try to put together a little “Happy Engagement” film for the lovebirds. I watched a few youtube videos to get the scoop on how to edit clips in the handy program my desktop came with … i’ve never attempted to edit video before!
