• Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Hello, Instagram

    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

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.

IMG_2740Wren from Florian shared her enchanted home tour on the blog.

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.

IMG_0793Now that we are already into November, the days are getting shorter and colder. Soon there will be snow, and I will be having my 30th birthday this month. Yikes!

  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!


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