in october

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.54.13 AMThe month of October came and went so quickly that I almost can’t believe that it was even here. These are some of the things that we got up to during that busy time.

Beard Oil DIY - 9Did you happen to see my do-it-yourself posts? First, I featured an easy beard oil tutorial. Then I had a duo candy and candle pumpkin holder, just in time for Halloween.

il_fullxfull.735150734_32zlI had several fashion posts, from a cropped jacket restyle, to a movie date outfit, to my favourite baby finds on Etsy.

Pregnancy Pillow - 3Speaking of babies, I shared my best purchase thus far, and celebrated being 20 weeks along!

Movie Date OOTD - 10Surprisingly, we only went to one film last month! However, we did watch several online, and I discussed the scariest ones here.

Edmonton Trip - 13We also took a weekend trip to our dream Canadian city, and one that we hope to move to in just a few short months.

IMG_0887Last but not least, Truman celebrated his birthday at the end of October. He is now 3 years old.

    I LOVE my snoogle, however I haven’t been using it as much lately…I’m sure I’ll go back to it soon! Love Truman & his birthday pictures…too cute, happy belated! :) Congrats on being 20 weeks :)

  3. That snoogle pillow looks like it might be great even for non-pregnant people trying to do better at sleeping on their sides, like me. I’m going to check that out.
    All the best as your “special time” continues. I can’t imagine how excited you must be everyday.

    • You know, I was contemplating writing a blog post on this very thing! You are so smart.

      I honestly can’t see myself giving up this pillow, even once the baby comes. I truly believe that every bed needs one. Not only does it replace a pillow entirely, but it lifts your legs to a more comfortable/healthier position while sleeping. Every night I curl up to it, and my husband scoots in behind me and uses it as well. Additionally, each time that I come into the bedroom, either my cat or my dog are fast asleep in one of its nooks.

      This pillow is heaven for people and animals alike. I especially think that you as a runner (with undoubtedly aches and pains) would benefit greatly from it!

      • You’re selling me on this one. I’ll be looking out for your review.

  4. Oh my Truman is a cutie!!! ( he kind of looks like my puppy pal Jazz, they could be brothers!!) So funny!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
