Rob and I have been on the hunt for coffee table books that will be used often and not just for decor and conversation starter. Ship to Shore from @houseofanansi was pretty perfect. From helping us learn to shop for fish that are in season, to the delicious recipes, this was a great addition not only to our living room but kitchen. Especially when this location is 100 meters from our front door and behind us are 3 women fishing mackerel. #eastcoastlife #sponsored.
We have taken the last week off of all the home renos to catch up on life. I keep feeling like we are getting so far yet we have hardly done a thing. This whole home owner business sure gives you a mix of emotions on a daily basis. The fireplace is at a standstill. So here’s my kids being cute and a little progress photo (swipe to see the before). Going to be sharing what we did on the blog tomorrow and our plans for how we are finishing it. But now we want to redo the floors 🙈🙈🙈this all is going to be a downhill spiral of projects. I can see it all now. #capecorncottage
#ad As much as I love my life and my littles, it has been a hard few months with no time for me at all. From working out to hygiene (literally, read the blog to know what I'm talking about), I have felt like I have been putting myself last and have had no time in the day for anything but family, the house and of course the blog. I am starting with small steps to get my time to myself back and trying out amazing products from @AveenoCA that are available at @shoppersdrugmartofficial. Find out all about it and a current PC Optimum bonus points offer on the blog. #AveenoAmbassador #AveenoCA
Our sweet little red flower. This weekend we bit the bullet and went exploring the family Christmas tree lot to tag our family tree. I mean thanksgiving is the perfect time to prepare for Christmas right? Being in full swing of the terrible twos, she wanted to do nothing but the opposite that we were doing. But, with the cold air coming off the lake, she stayed warm on her own adventures in her Canadiana parka and hat from @walmartcanada. Guys this jacket is unreal and under $40. #ad
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough” Happy thanksgiving to all you fellow Canadians. #thanksgiving #thewilddecoelis
Well, our potty training game isn't going awesome. Poppy loves to go on the potty and is doing great but at the same time is giving me all of the signs that she isn't ready to go all the way and I am fine with that. We are going to ease into this... Any mamas have some tips? At least we were totally prepared thanks to the awesome stock from @bestbuycanada . And while we are on that topic, Congrats @suzidi you have been randomly selected as the winner of the giveaway! Please DM me to claim. Thanks to everyone else who entered. You are all my favorite!#sponsored
With Thanksgiving weekend upon us, we have so much to be thankful for. Our new home, our great jobs, and our healthy kids. We have been talking to them leading up to this about reasons that they are happy and that those reasons also mean you are thankful.One of their top answers was their family, especially their cousins. But, with two of their cousins living overseas, we thought it would be fun to send them postcards saying how they feel thankful for them. This Saturday, @chaptersindigo stores across Canada are hosting the Gift Thanks with Yoobi event where you can stop by and create your own gratitude journal or post cards for a loved one with fun Yoobi stationary and stickers. We can’t wait to stop by and make some more! #IndigoWeekend #Sponsored
There is something about a dad and his baby girl. Rob has a way stronger bond than I do with Poppy and I will be the first to admit that I am a little bit jealous! So, when I headed into @walmartcanada to grab some of their affordable Canadiana winter gear for the family, I couldn't help myself than to buy them matching jackets. Who says Daddies and their baby girls can't twin. #twinning #ad
Our entire house is covered in sawdust, but we are so excited to know that we are finishing the fireplace tomorrow. So, instead of staring at all the filth, I’m over here staring at photos of L.A. And remembering how happy I am to not be in that heat right now....or maybe I miss it....not sure at this exact moment. #decoelistravel
It’s October tomorrow which means we have been in this new house of ours for over a month and it has been weeks since we were exploring the Oregon Coast. Our life seems to be flashing before our eyes and I can’t figure out how to slow it down. Anyone have any magical potion? I’ll buy it from you in bulk!!! #aubreypatrick #decoelistravel
**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**I can't believe we are already here at this stage in her life....where did my newborn go :'(. When we were traveling, she was my bathroom buddy and I couldn't believe that she actually would pee with me as if she had already been using the potty for forever. So, as soon as we got home I bought this awesome Poppy size potty just for her from @bestbuycanada. Right now they have a big sale on all of their baby gear so I stocked up on everything I need to get her out of diapers. And to celebrate the sale and Poppy's new stage, I am giving away an awesome prize pack for one lucky mama valued at $500 with awesome items like the Baby Brezza bottle warmer, and Vtech's 5' Baby Monitor.

This is one of those moments that Rob and I will always remember, a short clip that no matter how big she gets or how little she may need us, will still bring tears to my eyes. This is a moment she may never remember being in but will have this clip to bring her joy and remind her how much her dad loves her. These are the moment that are so minuscule in the span of life but that make parenthood life changing. #daddyslittlegirl #decoelistravel #disneyland
Swipe to see the progress➡️ One step closer to this room being done. When Poppy is quiet, you will find her here. I am so please with the way that the cushion cover turned out, all out of dropcloth! #capecorncottage
To find a man who will put the world on hold just to spend a moment with you is like finding the end of the rainbow. To find a man who will drop everything to dance with you in the middle of an empty Disneyland while the Aladdin soundtrack plays I’m pretty sure is even more rare. For that I think I am probably the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you baby for being born today and becoming an awesome husband, father and all around human. HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎉🎊🎂🎂!! 📷:@roxanneawest #thewilddecoelis #decoelistravel
I took to Instagram stories the other day talking about all of our big plans for this home and how I feel stuck with where to start and how to afford them. It's an overwhelming feeling that I am sure many of us mamas get when it comes to the idea of financial planning. Whether you are wanting to save for home renos, or sending your kids to university, or even just to pay off debt and get proper insurance to be protected. Rob and I are constantly saying it should be a subject in our schools. Luckily, @getplanswell is there to help. From the quick and easy free financial plan (it only took 3 minutes!) to the lovely call we had the next day to chat more in depth with one of their PlanPros, @getplanswell is helping us figure out where to put our money now so that we have it when we need it! #sponsored #capecorncottage
Well, just like you all who watched my wallpaper shenanigans yesterday, Poppy is also obsessed with her room. In the last house, her poor room was a glorified storage area. Moving her to the smallest room in the new house was a little worrying on how she would deal, but this room is pure Poppy and that Mural from @anewalldecor just made it complete! #capecorncottage • • P.S tap the photo to get all the details of where everything is from.
