When the Weather Outside is Frightful

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.




  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.
That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
