october corn maze

corn-maze-1Last Sunday, Geoffrey, Remy, and I visited a local corn maze. Located just outside of the city, it’s actually on the highway to The Little Barn. Because it’s held at the same location each year, I told my husband that one great aspect to living in TLB was that we would be only a few minutes away from the corn maze. Then we moved, and once again, it’s a bit of a drive for us.

corn-maze-12corn-maze-3Like I said, we had been planning on going to the maze for months. Actually, I’ve been planning it since before Remy was born. This was something that Geoffrey and I have done every year since we started dating. Fall is our favourite season, and being outside in the maze on what usually ends up being a grey day (also our favourite), is like heaven to us. We intend to take Remy to a corn maze every year until she’s too cool to go with us anymore. I’m honestly just so excited for this tradition!

corn-maze-8corn-maze-9Being so close to Halloween, I was worried that the maze was going to be busy. It turns out that we were virtually the only ones there. We couldn’t have planned it better. We had so much fun, and little Rem was a’maze’d.

corn-maze-11All in all, the maze was muddy and the weather was a little chilly and gloomy. It was absolutely perfect.

corn-maze-15Only four days until Halloween!

7 months

remy-7-months-3My darling girl is officially seven months old. These are her latest milestones:

– she sits up on her own, unassisted 
– she stands on her feet, assisted
– she constantly sticks out her tongue
– she fake coughs
– she is now on solids (and breast milk)

remy-7-months-9remy-7-months-10Where, where, where has the time gone? Oh, how I wish I could shrink her down to a newborn again. I’m so dreading her turning a year old!

remy-7-months-5Happy Monday, everyone!

matching green dresses

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetHave any of you ever seen The Money Pit? It has always been one of my favourite movies. Little did I know that I would one day be living it out.

Our new home so far has had its share of issues. Remember the scene in the film where Tom Hanks and Shelley Long had to boil water in order to take a bath? We did that for a week. Or when Hanks rings the doorbell and gets shocked, so he starts knocking on the door and it falls in? I got locked out one afternoon when I tried unlocking the door and my key got stuck in the lock and is now permanently bent. Or when they had to pack up the house and move out in order for it to get exterminated? Oh wait, that was us.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast week was a complete nightmare. We ended up having to move back to the acreage while our own money pit was getting sprayed. While we were staying there, I wanted to make the most of it. I slowly began to feel more like myself. The weather was gorgeous, and the dogs were able to roam freely, and my little sidekick of a daughter adjusted exceptionally well. So on one particular day, I put on our new green dresses, and Remy and I had a photo shoot.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetThank goodness for my family. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know where we would’ve gone with all of our things, a baby, two dogs, and a cat. We will turn this money pit around, slowly, but surely.

the benefits of an inflatable hot tub

homax2person-1024x404Inflatable hot tubs are a great investment, and there are a number of benefits of ownership. These are some of the benefits of an inflatable hot tub homeowners will realize, upon investing in one.

intexpurespaThey are large and movable –
Sure, you can have one installed. But, this limits where it can be used, the number of people, and when it can be used; plus they are far pricier than inflatable tubs. With inflatable hot tubs, you choose where to put them, they come in varying sizes which can seat many people, offer extreme levels of comfort, and you can enjoy them year round. You have more control, you choose where they go, and you can truly utilise the full outdoor area of the home with them.

hottubrunningcostsMany features and design –
More and more manufacturers are developing these inflatable tubs. So, you can find many shapes, sizes, design options, features (bubbles, jets, speeds, pillows, etc.) from which to choose. They come in so many varieties, that any homeowner is bound to find what works for their family and friends, when investing in these tubs.

hottubstepsThey are durable –
You may think they aren’t durable, but they are. The great quality exterior and interior finishes are not only capable of handling heavy weight amounts, but can take punctures, varying pressure levels, and are developed to withstand various forms of use and abuse. So, if you are weary of quality, do some research (to find top, well known brands) but you can be rest assured the right tub is built to last. One other major benefit is the cost; they are far cheaper than built in tubs for a homeowner, although there are still running costs of hot tubs that should be considered. With the right inflatable tubs, you can enjoy your outdoor space year round and truly take in the relaxing benefits of owning a hot tub for your personal enjoyment at home.

This was a sponsored post. I’m thankful for the brands and websites that I can partner with! (Especially ones that are right in time for the summer months!)

a sign for the little barn

Pike Lake Sign - 5In a bid to improve the exterior of The Little Barn, ordering an address sign was certainly a must.

Pike Lake Sign - 2I went through the same online company that we used for Little Green’s sign. Rather than choosing a bronze and gold cast aluminum plaque, this time I selected a green and silver one. It better matched the gooseneck lighting and hardware for the sliding doors.

Pike Lake Sign - 3Because of the uneven nature of the siding, Geoffrey had to first install a piece of reclaimed wood to ensure that the sign would fasten securely to the house. 

Pike Lake Sign - 7Pike Lake Sign - 8Remy watched to make sure that we did a job. It was so hot and windy that day!

Pike Lake Sign - 4We still need to stain the exterior of the house and deck and order a fence. The renos never end, even on a new home.
