Nursery Walls

I am beyond excited to decorate the bebe's room!! We wanted to have it pretty gender neutral, even once we know the sex of the baby. Also we wanted to incorporate nature and animals :)
I found these wall decals on and fell in love! Problem is, I can't decide which one to get now!

These are some of my favourites

Oh, Pioneer!

As I've mentioned before Oh, Pioneer! is by far one of my favourite blogs to browse through and day dream about living in the wilderness. My husband and I are planning on moving to the top of Vancouver island (currently living in Victoria at the very bottom). We want to raise our children close to nature, adventuring and exploring.

Here are some sigh inducing photos of my dreams....

If I stayed here I would sing on the top of my lungs!

Sigh... I wish we had some snow here in Victoria


Treehouse?! Yes please.


I would have loved this as a kid!

Love the simplicity and coziness of this room


I love all the textures

Fill in The Blank Friday (Technically it's my Friday)


This reminds me of our 3 kitties :)
1.   My most favorite "little thing" is     Reading in bed beside my husband every night underneath a pile of kitties. It's the best way to wind down together. ON our honeymoon (in 2 weeks!!) we plan to do a lot of reading together on the beach and by the pool:).

2.   I give anything to   live on a farm with my growing family one day     .

3.  I can't believe    how unbelievably excited I am to meet the little bebe in my belly in 4 months!

4. The one thing I'd like to achieve today is    Go to bed early and have a gloriously long sleep. The exciting life of pregnancy....

5.  The last thing I want to do today is    Chores... they can wait until tomorrow.

6.  If I were writing my own blank today, it would say:   "My favourite holiday tradition is" Spending Christmas day in the love fort my husband and I build with our couches pushed together, in our pjs watching Christmas movies.

7.  My favorite candle scent is    Harvest Spice   .

When my little sister Maddy and I went to The Nutcracker, she got to meet the cast afterward!

4 months down, 5 to go!

16 week old fetus

Dear My baby Minnow,

You are now 16 weeks old, and you can officially hear my voice now! How cool is that? I've been singing to you lots and telling you jokes. I put daddy's headphones on my belly so you could hear some of my favourite music last night; it was the first time I felt you move inside me :) It felt like little butterflies doing back flips ever so slightly. I can't wait til you're a bit bigger and I will be able to feel you kicking and hiccuping. I know your daddy is excited to feel you move and we're both excited for our first ultrasound coming up, especially excited to find out if you're a little girl minnow or a boy minnow. I think you're a girl, and your daddy thinks your a boy. Whatever you are we can't wait to meet you! I already love you with all my heart, and now that the worst of the morning sickness has passed, I'm really enjoying this one on one time we're getting :)

Keep in growing Minnow!

Love Momma

Oh, Pioneer!

I've been spending my evening with my headphones on since the husband and friends have been on a non-stop Skyrim bender. It's a pretty sweet looking video game, but a video game no less. And I much rather be listening to music and looking through Oh, Pioneer! my new favourite blog.
 Just take a look, and you'll see why. A collection of breathtaking images of nature, adventuring, and other random amazing things. It's making me want to get my adventuring pants on, and go run up a mountain. (Currently making Sunday plans to do just that!)

Here are some of my favourite images.

I want to live here
