Growing Up


Just before James turned two, Chris and I decided he should try sleeping in his toddler bed - which really was just his crib without a side on it. That lasted only a month. James was so not ready to have the freedom to wander around his room and the house at night if and when he woke up. Naptimes were horrible. It would take me an hour just to put him down, and on the days I had to go to work, I had to tiptoe around the house, trying to take a quick shower hoping that I didn't wake him. Like I said, after a month of that - we put the crib back together. We would try again in the Summer. Just before we moved we bought him a new toddler bed. We knew that we would be needing the crib (which we didn't use for almost a year after Graham was born!) so we bought him a second hand Little Tikes Car bed. I was so worried he wouldn't sleep in it, but the first night he was happy to climb into his own bed. Sure he got up like a gazillion times, but after three hours of trying he finally … [Continue reading]

Catch the Moment 365 – Week Fifteen


Welcome to another Catch the Moment 365! Linking up over with Nurse Loves Farmer!   101 | 365 I was playing around with some new filters I got... I still don't know what they are for. I guess I should do some research eh? 102 | 365 Saturday night we had a date night. Well, it was a birthday party for my best friend. I got dressed up, something I don't usually do. You can see what I wore here. 103 | 365 Sunday was a GORGEOUS day! We spent it outside in the backyard clearing a garden bed. Graham was all over the new found mud pit and he has also fallen in love with the Cozy Coupe. 104 | 365 I don't think I picked up my camera on Monday.. like at all. I just read.

I am always looking for something new to read. 105 | 365 On Tuesday, Chris took the boys outside to play so I could has some quiet time. I had this idea to try taking a self silhouette photo... I think in the end … [Continue reading]

What did I Wear?

Saturday Outfit

Saturday was date night! Well, actually is was my best friends *ahem* 29th birthday bash, so I got all dolled up for our night out! So what did I wear? I have been re vamping my wardrobe for the past couple of months - you know, getting rid of the maternity clothing and stuff that is too big now and working on updating some of my pieces. One item that I was really wanting was a plain black maxi skirt. I have been looking for what seems like forever!! I'm not much of  a skirt or dress gal, but I wanted a couple pieces for the Summer. Lo and behold, I found a plain black maxi at Target! It was the perfect length and is so comfortable. I wasn't sure if wearing a maxi skirt to a bar/pub would be a good idea (there was dancing as well) but in the end, I decided to wear it. I paired my black maxi skirt with a basic tank (also from Target), and of course I decided on Saturday that I needed wanted a jean jacket. I had to chuckle at that - as I have not worn a jean jacket since I … [Continue reading]
