Evie is so proud of her new word and understanding how to sit! I love hearing her say stuff and watching her figure things out. So cool and the cutest!
You’d never know if from the first two photos but this has been one of our roughest weeks yet.
We dealt with sinus and chest virus, an ear infection, adverse reaction to antibiotic, teething molars and lots of sleepless nights. Oh and tantrums have officially started 😬 #14monthsold.
Mommy and daddy are both sick and super busy with work too but thankfully our monkey is feeling better. Crazy times ❤️🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #isthereafullmoon #momlife #toddlerlife #daycaregerms #teamnosleep #stillgratefull #butsendhelp #thisiscrazy

The last month has been rather hectic 🤪. My fresh veggie intake has not been on a level where I feel my best but now that our house is sold I can get back to really messing up my kitchen on the regular. 👩🏻‍🍳🙌🏼❤️🥗🌱🤣. Thankful for greens supplements and on the go convenience food options because home showings with a busy toddler (and a dog) are a b*tch! Now gimme all the salads! (And a glass of wine or two for celebratory and recovery purposes 😜)

This baby is loving being outside! The backyard, front yard, driveway, front steps and garage are like all totally new and exciting parts of the house 🤣

We went to the park for the first time last night and I want these moments etched into my memory forever. It all just whizzes by.
It’s so amazing to watch her explore. She’s such a very busy, happy, curious, observant and agile little person. She’s practically running. Definitely determined. And so strong. She chases after all dogs like they are long lost friends. She waves at all the kids and notices everything.

Everything is so fun and fascinating including eating all the sand, dirt, grass, leaves and pinecones. 😝🙈🙆🏻‍♀️ #lovestoeat #firstborn #momlife #busybaby #14monthsold

One of my favourite views in my current house is the living room from the kitchen in the afternoon sun. ☀️💖 Sometimes just appreciating the little things goes a long way #gratitude #grateful #sundayvibes

Happy 6th birthday to our Missy girl fur baby! We adopted her from the @canadiandachshundrescue in 2014 and she fit right in. She’s got her issues (really, who doesn’t 🤔🤷🏻‍♀️) but she is so dedicated, loyal, loving, smart and snuggly. She’s been so great this past year with Evie too, even with her back surgery and losing her fur sister 😢💕🙏🏼 Her favourite things are burrowing under the covers for seriously cozy naps, lounging in rays of sunlight, protecting the perimeter of our backyard, perfect weather walks with her family and squeaky toys.
Love this pup. 🐶❤️ #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #cdro #myottawa

It’s official!
Our house is for sale with @kristamcfadden1 ❤️🙏🏼 Amazing kitchen, massive private backyard. I’ll miss this place! #lovethishome #houseforsale #myottawa

With life being extra crazy right now meals need to be super quick and simple. They still need to be nourishing, macro and micronutrient balanced and of course tasty too. You know how I love to eat some good food! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Dinner choice also needs to appeal to my 13 month old AND my hubby when he reheats it late when he gets home from work . 👶🏻🧔🏻🤷🏻‍♀️😆 Meals that I can cook all in one pan or all in the oven at the same time work great. The air fryer is great too.
Seasonings like (dairyfree) pesto or herb and spice mixes like Za’atar or harissa or even just lemon and garlic are perfect. I keep the salt and heat spice at a minimum for Evie.
Frozen meats/fish/poultry I usually pull out of the freezer the night before and I keep a variety of frozen and fresh fruit and veggies on hand. You can buy veggies ore spiralized but it’s really quick and easy to do. I love Ali’s @inspiralized spiralizer!! It’s the best one.
I’m also loving quick cooking pastas, especially legume pasta. Evie’s fave actually. Mini potatoes are great because they cook quickly with little prep. Otherwise I cut regular potatoes or sweet potatoes pretty thinly so they cook more quickly. We like our fries skinny anyway 🤗. I also usually pre-cook brown or white rice and have some on hand.
This salmon and zucchini noodle dinner took 20min. Roasted the salmon and the noodles in the oven and tossed with pesto. We had leftover potatoes from last night’s quick garlic sausage meal too. Done.
🙌🏼👌🏼 The salmon and the sausages are from @trulocal. They are antibiotic free, no hormones added, and local. They are all portioned and frozen, delivered and fabulous. Coupon code: 8Y7WFJXC2RK9 😍

Just thought I’d share what’s working for us lately ❤️ #foodfirst #blw #nutritioncoach

Totally feeling this right now 🤪🤪🤪🤪. Sometimes life is just extra crazy. It’s a season. A chapter. An adventure. I’m not wishing it all by but man oh man I’m looking forward to some time for selfcare❤️🙏🏼 In the meantime I’ve got work to do! 👊🏼

Would you agree that Evie and her daddy look a little alike? 🧐🤗😜💗#twinning #daddydna #12monthsold

Taco bowls for lunches this week. 🙌🏼🌮
I used my taco seasoning recipe for the ground turkey (on fitbeauties.ca) made brown rice, added black beans, frozen organic corn and kale. Then on the side to add once this is heated: avocado, lettuce, tomato on his, cilantro on mine & salsa. I made 10 meals so lunch for hubby and I. This meal is really easy to adjust based on your nutritional needs and not much to the prep ❤️ #mealprep

Anybody else? This is the worst.
Poor Evie is still wheezing...doesn’t stop her much though. Even at 3am 🤒🤪🤦🏻‍♀️
#momlife #sickday

Look at that smile. 😁
Even when not feeling 100% she manages these smiles. Such a joyful spirit. I love this baby ❤️🙏🏼
