Social media has a lot of negatives but it also has so many positives. Tonight I hung out with someone that I haven’t spoken to since middle school... and I’m not sure that we really talked back then.... Well it was amazing and I could have spent hours and hours hanging out with her! Don’t you guys love when that happens?!
You guys... I did something really scary today! Something WAY outside my comfort zone. .
I made a YouTube video 😅
I have wanted to do this for SEVEN YEARS! #millenials .
So if you are bored and feel like watching a video about how Ryan and I plan to actually pay off debt while pregnant instead of spend more money... you should click on over!

Last night Ryan and I decided to take an impromptu trip out to the farm. Leaving in the morning would have been the easier choice but when we decide that we want to do something, reasons why we shouldn’t just don’t matter 🤷♀️
So we quickly packed up. Fit three dogs into the back seat of our car (we are dog sitting my parents Dalmatian right now) and took off!
We got here in the dark. Started a fire to warm up the cabin (it was FREEZING). Made our bed and then watched Hercules while eating popcorn. .
It was perfect 💕
SUCH a busy day. I have literally been on the go since 6am this morning. Between studying for midterm, attending a lecture, taking the puppy to the vet, taking my papa to T&T supermarket and the greenhouse then wrapped the day up with a photo shoot. There was definitely moments that I didn’t think I would be able to uphold all of my commitments but feeling so proud for stretching my capacity today. .
Now time to curl up in bed with my hunny and our big puppy 💕
I have been stressing out a lot lately that I’m failing at balancing all my responsibilities. I need to be a good student, entrepreneur, wife, fur mama, daughter, friend, Christian AND I need to make sure I am taking care for myself by working out and eating healthy.... Thank you @suzibuhi for posting about this exact topic today. I so needed to hear it!
One of the problems with social media is that we see people doing really well in ONE area of their life. We then think since we see a number of different people doing well in different things, that we have to be as good as each of them but at EVERYTHING.
There was a quote I read once... I can’t find it now so bear with me as I try to paraphrase it as I remember it...
Life is about juggling values, not balancing them. In juggling, you can only have so many balls in the air at a time - Have too many on the go and you risk it all crashing down.
Moral of the story: you will never be perfect but you are doing a damn good job with that crazy, messy life of yours 😘 .

Guys! This is a BIG deal!
Ignore my unmade bed and unbrushed hair for a moment. I am wearing my grade 12 grad dress! 🎉
Every year I watched my clothing get a little tighter after graduating and this is the first time I have attempted to put this back on (not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous)
Well nothing motivates me more than seeing that what I am doing is working 👍🎉💕 Now do you think it would be weird to grocery shop in this because I don’t want to take it off!?
I have had a bit of a technology detox for the last two months and it has been amazing. To catch you guys up I have gone back to school, Ryan has been working a new job, we’ve had several bouts of colds and stomach bugs come through the house, spent numerous hours talking about the next five years.... oh and we got a new puppy. Lucy meet instagram. Instagram meet Lucy. She is a Rottweiler lab cross that has been bossing Hobbes around since day one. Flip right to see a photo of my mom and me having a nap with the two puppies 💕
🎉HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎉
I hope that you had the greatest day today. I feel honoured that you wanted to spend your special day with me. 😘
You are one of the kindest, funniest, most adventurous people that I know. I love the fact that you are a dreamer and I respect the fact that you then bust your butt to make your dreams come true. Thank you for being the greatest listener and for pushing me to dream even bigger in my own life. I will forever be grateful that we were mistaken for each other because otherwise, I'm not sure that we would have met 😘💕
💦DAY 18/21 💦
Whoever said weights would make girls bulky was looney pants! Weights are without a doubt my FAVOURITE! Not only is it a break from cardio (yuck) but you look bad ass while lifting them! Oh and then there's all the science about how lifting weights accelerates weight loss, burns more calories and gives you sexy curves. Don't know where to start? Send me a message! 😘
