Well, March is officially here and with it brought more snow to Halifax. This weekend was a crazy one, with My dad falling and breaking his wrist, Rob having a Hernia, and Aubrey teething, I’m pretty worn out. But with all that drama, the sun still shined and we were able to get out for a great brunch and a bright drive.

This shirt has been a blogger favourite on Instagram and I was dying to have it for myself. So, on my birthday Last week, I took in a shopping trip to H&M and finally got one for myself. Its huge and comfy, and I feel like I’m wearing a security blanket with it on. Definitely a great purchase on my part.

Well, its been about 36 hours since I turned 28. I feel old, I mean, I felt old before, but now its official. 27 was a good year in many ways but a tough year in others. With 28, this year brings a sense of confidence, pride in who I am, and being comfortable in my own skin. there are so many things that I have learned in the past 28 years that I would love to be able to tell my 15 year old self while I was crying in a corner of my room, while the girls bullied me behind my back. I would tell her how those girls won’t matter in 5 years when you find that they keyed your new car for no reason. In 28 years, I have learned that the only opinion that matters of me, is mine.

There are so many things I am proud of about myself, like the love that I have for my family, the dedication I have for my work and blog, and the mom that I have become since having Aubrey. I am finally happy to be me.

28 is going to bring a ton of new exciting things that I can’t wait to share with you. Stay tuned because its going to be a CRAZY one.

Paleo Coffee Creamer

Almost a year ago we started doing the paleo diet and one thing that has stuck with us day in and day out is the French vanilla paleo coffee creamer. It has now become such a staple, that we don’t even like regular milk in our coffees unless we are out at a fancy little coffee shop. Now, I have posted this recipe before but after a year since that post, it is such a favourite that I believe it deserves more time in the spotlight. It is quick and easy and only involves 3 ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • Full Fat Unsweetened canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of Maple Syrup (real, NOT AUNT JEMIMA)
  • 3 tbsp of pure Vanilla Extract

Directions: 

Pour all ingredients into a mason jar or other sealable container and shake until combined. Or you can use a frother to mix. Keep refrigerated.

Enjoy ;-)

Stranger Vs. Soother

Wildrosebuds.com: Stranger vs. sootherWildrosebuds.com: Stranger vs. soother

As a mom you start to learn a bunch of small pet peeves when it comes to your child. There seems to be more now than there has ever been in my life. The biggest parent pet peeve that Rob and I both share is when strangers touch Aubrey’s soother. In public, sometimes Aubrey’s soother will fall out. As nice people do, they try to grab the soother first thinking that they are helping us. But, from a parents perspective, if you are not a relative, DO NOT TOUCH THE SOOTHER. Yes, germs are everywhere, including the ground, but there are more germs on your hands. It is a great help for a mom when you try to do nice things, so pass me a kleenex after I pick up the soother, do not touch the soother yourself. We cringe each time someone reaches down towards it on the ground. I know the day is soon coming when the soother won’t be in aubrey mouth anymore, and honestly, I’m ready for it. Its dirty and grimy and you wash it 30 times a day. But until that day, I will scream in my head while fighting off my urge to react with this pet peeve.
