Halloween House DIY Window Silhouettes

Halloween House DIY Window Silhouettes…It’s Halloween, and we celebrate big in our neighbourhood!  We live on a street where almost all the houses decorate weeks in advance, with elaborate graveyards and inflatables and spiders crawling on the roofs.  It’s intense, spooky, creepy, and awesome!  This year I took it up a notch with some DIY Halloween window silhouettes, we are the only house on the whole street who does this, it looks so good when the lights are on and the moon is out…

Inflatable Pool 2nd Birthday Party for Baby K

Inflatable Pool Birthday Party…My little boy turned two this summer, and even though I just had Baby A I still wanted to throw him a big, fun party with lots of baking and décor (sleep be damned!).  Even though we live near the beach, I decided it was much easier to have a backyard inflatable pool party than try to pack everybody and everything up, and it turned out perfect.  We celebrated Baby K turning two, but also my friends and family got to meet sweet newborn Baby A…

Third Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison Part 4

Third Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison…My third baby is here, it’s a girl!  What a whirlwind it has been, she is already four weeks old and I am just now getting to the announcement on Instagram and this labour comparison post.  Life as a Mom of 3 under 4 is crazy, let me tell you.  Crazy, but delicious and wonderful.  I have not stopped holding and snuggling and kissing her this entire time…

Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan, Part 2

Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan Part 2…My third baby is about to be born (anytime now!), and I’m already preparing to get my postpartum weight loss underway.  Am I totally crazy?  Perhaps, but I actually find the weight loss process to be really fun, challenging and inspiring.  As a new Mom, it’s important to do something for yourself, and I think getting fit and healthy and exercising and shedding the no-longer-necessary pregnancy weight is a great thing to do for yourself…

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison Part 3

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison…I am now well into my third trimester with my third baby, and it’s going really well!  I’ve passed all the tests (no gestational diabetes, no strep B, no blood pressure problems), my belly is growing right on track, and my energy levels are pretty good.  I’m still super tired, but that’s the only complaint I have and it could very well be due to the fact that I don’t really start my day until my other two babies are asleep.  I’m quite the night owl…

Addams Family Nursery

Addams Family Nursery…The Addams Family is an unusual theme for a baby nursery, but it’s perfect for our new little one! We are big lovers of Halloween, and I’m a particular fan of the Addams Family. I think I was Morticia for at least 3 Halloween’s in a row as a child, she’s my #momgoals and her and Gomez are my #couplegoals–they are so in love and romantic all the time…

Winter Mountain Lake Maternity Photo Shoot

Winter Mountain Lake Maternity Photo Shoot…We just got back from our Babymoon in the Rocky Mountains. We stayed at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, it was a fairy tale! We started our weekend getaway at the Comic Expo in Calgary, Alberta, saw the new Avengers movie in a super fancy theatre with reclining leather seats, then went to Lake Louise for maternity photos and massages. It was such a fun weekend…
