Staying healthy during COVID-19 is no joke, what with gyms closing, feeling more confined to your home, trying to eat up whatever’s in your pantry and reducing grocery store visits, etc. I feel like when I was saying I had “adjusted to my new normal” a couple months ago, I was really just trying to convince myself because really, I hadn’t adjusted at all and was still kind of resisting what our situation was.

Our Gender Reveal

May 25, 2020

It’s a…. …BOY!!!  Gaaaah still so crazy to say it out loud!! Anyway, we had the most incredible physically distanced gender reveal party in my parents’ backyard a few weekends ago, a couple weeks after we’d gotten the results of our Harmony test back (an NIPT test that checks for chromosomal abnormalities, which also lets you find out gender early!).

My First Trimester Recap

May 21, 2020

If you guys missed my post earlier this week, well…I’m pregnant! I’m 17 weeks now and feeling really quite amazing—my energy’s back, my nausea has basically entirely dissipated and my boobs aren’t making me cry in pain anymore (though they are still massive and continuing to grow…if they were huge before, I don’t even know what I’d call them at this point…gargantuan?).

Tips for hosting a watercoloring party by To Vogue or Bust

As we’re all spending more time at home and as travel, work, socializing, etc have all slowed down, there’s really never been a better time to try out something creative for the first time (or to pick it back up if you haven’t been as committed to it lately!). I’ve always been a fairly creative person and really love the joy that doing something creative brings (especially when it’s a newer skill you’re acquiring and you get those first glimmers…

What to see in Vancouver

Navigating this last little while has definitely been challenging for so many different reasons (while also offering some positive changes like more time to read, quality time with Matt, etc, something worth reminding myself of sometimes!) but the thing that’s really proven itself most challenging for me has been being apart from my loved ones. I’m an extraverted person and get my energy from being around people so on a personal note, it’s just been hard being apart from others,…
