Jillian Harris - Leo Eating Solids

I’ve been getting lots of questions from everyone on our experience (so far) with introducing solids into Leo’s diet and while I’ve been meaning to share this blog with you for a while now I wanted to wait it out so I could get a better feel for what was working and what wasn’t working for us! I finally feel as …

Jillian Harris - A Week In My Closet- 1

Good morning everyone!! Another Saturday means another glimpse into my closet! However, I must admit I’m a little peeved about all of this flippin’ white stuff still on the ground but I’ve decided I’m not going to let that get in my way anymore when it comes to welcoming spring into my wardrobe. I’m officially busting out the sandals (a …

I have to admit, I used to LOVE sick days as a kid. My BFF Karissa and I would always TRY to get sick together so we could go to each other’s houses and play ‘get better’ together … but something tells me Leo’s first sick day won’t be as fun. Other than the fact that I will be able …

The Work Pump Balance

I promised myself when I got pregnant (knowing I would only have a few months off at best) that I wouldn’t force anything post baby and would do whatever made our life easier. I wanted to mitigate stress and didn’t want unnecessary mom guilt.  That meant breastfeeding and supplementing with formula. Whatever happened happened. But when Leo was born there was …

Holy moly!!!! I can’t believe Leo’s 1st Halloween has already come and gone! However, I think this lil family of ours nailed our costumes this year … not only was Leo a little (but oh-so ferocious) Lion but can we just take a moment to really admire Dorothy, AKA Nacho … What. A. Trooper!!!! With Canadian Thanksgiving (American upon us) and Halloween behind …

Since it’s Leo’s first Halloween I have been adamant since day one that I wanted him to be a lion. I was originally going to be Dorothy but then I found a dog costume for Nacho instead and it fit him perfectly! I of course procrastinated and I couldn’t find a lion costume for Leo that fit him properly … …

For those of you that are always asking about where I grocery shop and WHAT  is in my grocery bag, look no further. I have been shopping exclusively at Nature’s Fare Markets for almost a year now. It makes my grocery shopping made easy for me since they do the research for you and I no longer need to look at …

This blog should technically be written by Justin as he is the tech guru in our family (and I MAY or may not have asked him for his help with this round up lol). As soon as we found out we were pregnant one of the first things he did was started researching about the top of the line gadgets …

As I was cautioned many times in the past … once you have a child, your needs take the back burner and it becomes all about the baby! Well, isn’t that the truth (for the most part, anyway lol)!! Which is why instead of sharing my ‘Wardrobe Essentials’ today, I’m going to be sharing my diaper bag essentials and all of …
