How to Make a Baby

Okay the title is misleading. Here are a few photos of the zillions I just edited, organized and purged. Note to all ~ never keep 12 000 photos on your laptop without an external drive. I just purged down to 4000 and backed them up. phew. Week 10 with Fern and time to get some projects finished and posted! Next project is blowing up and printing some family photos to make our family photo frame wall! stay tuned.

These again were taken by Bluetree Photography’s NJ. SOOO glad we had her to capture our process of baby making. These photos taken at 8.5 months pregnant, at the best beach on the east coast of Vancouver Island and the old growth forest beside it. I’m trying to post photos here that I didn’t on facebook.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.. baby!

Well, it’s a DIY with my husband ! Here’s a pregnancy update ~ We are at 30 weeks on New Years! Holy cow, heh?

Trimester three is going swimmingly (see posts of me eating chocolate and baked goods, finally!) I’m about to start behaving now that the holiday is over. Back to daily either ~ walking, prenatal yoga or swimming. Anywho.. it’s hard to take a flattering photo at this stage so here you go. Professional photos are booked in another month! My husband took me out to a fancy dinner ~I got to wear a fascinator I’ve been dying to wear for a while ~ and got lots of compliments on it ~  OMG truffle oil shoestring fries, wild mushroom soup and beet, goat cheese, pear and pecan salad. YUM.

My sweety has been taking VERY good care of me. xo

 HAPPY HOLIDAYS.  What did you make this holiday?

The Nursery Before. It’s Happening.

Well blog friends, it’s HAPPENING! I’m officially in my third trimester and nesting like a mad womyn. With xmas coming and both working, we have a lot on the go and minimal time off but slowly we are making some changes in our awesome new house. I’m posting before nursery photos in order to motivate myself! Stay tuned in the next 2 weeks for the final room (before xmas for sure). I’ve also included a Pregnancy Breakfast of Champions shot. My awesome husband makes me a shake every morning ~ berries, greek yogurt, banana, almond milk. I take all the other vitamins with it, to make sure our future baby attends college.

My Husband is a Tart

20121029-114705.jpg

No, he’s not really. But it sounds catchier than “my husband makes amazing chicken pot pie”. Smerk*. I mentioned to my husband a week ago that my current pregnancy craving was for chicken pot pie – home style comfort food. A couple days later, I came home from work and he had baked a dozen giant ones from scratch! So sweet, heh? His first crust was too pie like (tho lovely + buttery), so we cheated and got tender flake mini pie crusts, to use up the rest of the filling last night. I think I ate 7 of them. Don’t judge me… I’m pregnant. I love you baby and baby.

The Joys of Pregnancy Hair

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILARY

& Happy October everyone! 

Well, it’s no secret that I am 4 months pregnant! woot woot! Month three rocked (& a bit of writing about the first trimester is yet to come). But the changes that have come with month four include some mega affects on my  hair. I swear by the pricey and totally worth it CHI conditioning treatment that my stylish gucci-loving stylist performs quaterly… but you can’t use harsh chemicals when you are knocked up. I envision myself as even more organic while pregnant ~so am open to trying new things. Fast forward to home problem solving some seriously knotted, half fuzzed out, half straight, dried out red, hair. I googled and yahoo’d my way through some hilarious home kitchen remedy hair conditioners, one hormonal weekend night.

So… I gave the ol avocado and mayo treatment a whirl. See photo above for ingredients. It’s  a fairly straight forward process of mix em all together and lather on. I lathered from root to tip and put a plastic bag over my head for an hour. My husband was agasp and as usual, humoured  my creativity. After an hour I rinsed the messy, stinky, clumpy bits of greeen out in the tub. Then shampoo’d. Results? Nothing really, meh. My hair was soft but smelled like breakfast foods. Save your mayo for the sandwiches you’ll want in months 4-6 ladies. And please don’t tell my stylist I tried this at home!

The positive to this omelette hair DIY? I discovered LUSH in Vancouver a few months ago. During the holy shit I smell even after showering hormonal body odour stage. They saved me and my marriage with their sold deo. I  have a new love for my pits now. So.. I looked online, on another night of low hair self esteem. I splurged with my Sin-tax monies. They have a Therapy (lol) massage bar for growing bellies that might just take me out of the running for developing stretch marks (fingers crossed). So I ordered two bars.

I also ordered a hair conditionng treatment black pot, I think called Jazmin & Henna Hair Fluff Eaze? I placed my order online, paid $6 for UPS delivery and it was on my doorstep when I got home.. TWO DAYS LATER! YEAH LUSH. Now to try it this weekend. I’ll keep you posted. click here for the LUSH website for ordering
