Teag, the artist.


While making supper, I found Teag colouring.

On the wall.

With chalk.

And one of Arlo, sleeping with his Wubbanub.

I decided that since it was only chalk, I would let him colour.

It does wipe off after all.

It was a moment of “let him be a child, let him discover”.

I’m glad I did.

The look on his face was priceless.

Full of joy and pride over the art that he had created.

My baby, so grown up.




What I would wear Wednesday!


Sweaters. Sweaters. Sweaters.

I love the soft tones of the sweater and the grey trench.

Red and grey. Probably my favourite colour tones, yet I rarely wear them.

Casual, comfy. Makes me wish is was spring-time.

This is my favourite combo yet. I love the yellow and the stripes.

I love my sweaters, they are my go-to choice for outfits.
Do you have a favourite sweater or go-to item?

Nail polish edition!

I love nail polish, that being said, rarely do i have the time to actually do them!

Here are my favourite nail polish ideas!

I love that only one nail is completely sparkly.

I love the nautical style of this one, but wish that they would have painted the lines, instead of just using tape.

I think this is just too fun!

A different twist on doing your nails!

What is your favourite way to paint your nails?

Potty tales.


My little Teag is growing so fast.

He is constantly moving and talking.

Trying to grow up so fast.

Last night, I put him to bed, put Arlo to bed and left the room.

I went downstairs, and listened to him sing.

“Moooommmmmmyyy. Mommmmyyy. winniepooh. pupppppyyy.”

After a while, he started to sing about the potty

[that’s what happens when you start to potty train, it’s all about the potty and the treats (candy, not poop)]

then he started to cry.

But I was going to hold my ground.

He was going to soothe himself.

Then it was hysterics.


Still, I held off.

Then after a few minutes of the potty screams, I went upstairs.

I found him at the gate of his room (he has a gate, not a door.)

completely naked.

Holding his dry diaper and jammies in one hand,

and his bankie in his other hand.

With a puddle of pee on the floor.

Lesson learned.

From now on, when he calls,

I answer.

Even if it is the nine millionth time for the potty.


Yesterday night, it was bath night.

Teag was in the tub.

I was changing Arlo’s diaper when I saw that he had pooped.

I sat him down on Teags potty (it was clean, don’t worry)

while I waited for Rich to grab the wipes.

Rookie move, i know.

Wipes were brought, then I saw it.

He peed in the potty.

Teag did a happy dance.

We dance after a child goes pee in the potty.

 It was crazy.


My babies are growing up so fast.

What I would wear Wednesday…



I love to sew, unfortunately I haven’t had time, or patience to sew for myself.

I love this skirt, I did try making it with jersey fabric tonight, but it just wasn’t working for me (the lack of sleep probably wasn’t helping). Tomorrow, I think I will try and make it with some thicker fabric.

I love the colour, the style, everything about this shirt (or is it a dress? Either way, I want to make one like it!)

I don’t know what it is about bows lately, but I am becoming obsessed with them. I love this dress.

Something a little more casual. I have about 35894598435 meters of jersey knit fabric I could use…
