Comments Off on When the Weather Outside is Frightful

Holy Moly, it has been a cold week (yes all you up North folk I am complaining about the -5’s with wind). I don’t do good in the cold, not one bit. At home I almost always have a blanket on me.. sometimes two.. like how our bed currently has not one but two duvet quilts on it, that’s all for me. So it’s late.. and I am kind of just talking about nothing but I wanted to write about something personal but all I can think about is how cold my toes are. That being said I am going to change the subject and just share some random thoughts I have been having. Let’s say.. five. Five random thoughts that have been floating around my head.

1. I have been thinking a lot about the new year. Whether or not to make a resolution or to just start implementing new lifestyle choices slowly, but surely. I don’t want to say, “I am going to exercise two days a week” and then never go. Exercise and eating healthy are important to me but it is something that was dropped when I started to get “so busy”. So I need a plan, a plan to keep up with the everyday busy busy but also eat better and add in some exercise.

2. Lately I have been saying no a lot. It feels good. I am 100% a yes person, I love being involved in things, being present, meeting new people and gaining new experiences. Lately though, saying no has felt so good. I am starting to accept that though I want to “do it all” it is perfectly ok not to. Better yet, it is so much more enjoyable to stop doing and rest. I still think I am trying to do too much but I am so proud of the amount of less I am doing overall.

3. More thoughts on the New Year. I want to create a consistent schedule with posts. I want to share more about me and more about faith. Maybe this could be the start of something new, my random thoughts Friday… might need to work on a more clever name but I think we are onto something here.

4. My pelvis is almost completely healed. Something I haven’t talked about at all anywhere on my feed or blog is how much pain I was in after just having Evelyn. For three months I waited to go to the chiropractor. It was painful to sit down, I had nights with nearly no sleep, laying in discomfort, and then finally my sister convinced me (literally forced me to phone) to book a chiropractor appointment. After going for my first appointment we discovered that my pelvis was hugely rotated which causes large amounts of pain. I still have a bit of pain but it is 99% better. If you are reading this and dealing with pain in your body, get help. Seriously, don’t wait and think it will go away, just go get help. now.

5. Hair loss right now is at an ultimate high. I remember loosing a lot of hair with Sophie around three months, but I don’t remember when it ended. I have been loosing so much with Evelyn as my hormones adjust and go through all the crazy postpartum things they do. Hopefully it stops falling out soon, otherwise we might have a pretty thin head of hair to style in the coming weeks.

There we have it. Five random things and I am officially ready for bed.

These photos were taken for a recent Instagram collaboration with Roma Boots by E Fraser Photo. I love the boots and the photos so much that I couldn’t not share more. Roma Boots are new to Canada and carry both ladies and children’s styles. Their slogan is “giving poverty the boot” which ties into the fact that they give a pair of boots to a child living in poverty everytime a pair is bought.

  • There are quite a few new faces around here since the last time I did a little "things about me" introduction. I love sharing strange bits about me and knowing who else out there can relate. Make sure to let me know in the comments. So let's get going on one shall we.⠀
1. Hey, I'm Codi Lynn. People close to me call me Codi. My name has forever been spelled wrong, one time the guy at Starbucks spelt it right and my eyes got so wide in shock... then I realized I was wearing a name tag.⠀
2. I haven't always had glasses, when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Sophie I realized I could no longer read the TV guide without squinting. When I got my prescription I found out it is common for pregnant woman to loose their eyesight... just another joy of pregnancy right there.⠀
3. I only just figured out how to pencil in my eye brows and not gonna lie, pretty pumped about it.⠀
4. A part of me wants to move away and experience more of the world but then the majority of me never wants to leave the area where my Mom, Dad and sisters are.⠀
5. My husband is convinced that one day I will like mushrooms. That's never going to happen. •

  • Somehow these two + Ezra made it into bed before 8 tonight, I'd call that a summer miracle.
•
This summer bed times have been all over the place. Do you as a family stick to a routine or find you stay up later in the summer months? Love to hear how you guys roll! We are pretty well all over the place with some decently late nights lately, which made tonight feel so so good.

  • These two are kind of like watching a game of cat and mouse. Here the cat is teasing the little mouse with her rose that somehow perfectly matches her @pemberleyco dress.

  • Had a night away tonight and I have a couple things to say about it.
1. I bought the new Almond Frap from Starbucks on the way out and it was 👎🏻😩🤢 Anyone else tried it? Better yet, what's your fav Starbucks cold drink?
2. Tonight speaking at @briteup_etsyyvr's social media event was such a joy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE connecting with people in real life and being and able to share what I've learned to help them reach their goals. Seriously, such a thrill!
