A few weeks ago I published a post about my strong dislike of online buy, sell, trade groups. If you haven’t read that post, but you’ve been a part of any of these groups on the buying or selling end you will want to read it. But, for the sake of time, I will condense [...]

48 hours in Nashville for my sister’s bachlorette party

My So-Called Mommy Life Nashville

Two weekends ago, my sisters friends and I surprised her with a trip to Nashville for her bachlorette. Even though she’s not getting married until March, it was decided that the fall was a better time  then in the winter when the weather is more unpredictable. It was all but one of our first times [...]

“I want so much more than they’ve got planned”  When I turned 16 years old, the musical Beauty and The Beast was playing in Toronto. I remember begging my mom for tickets to go and see it. I had adored the movie that came out in 1991. When I woke up on the morning of [...]

That time another mom laughed at me

My So-Called Mommy Life

Princess Peach’s school dismisses the Kindergarten students at 3:20PM which is 10 minutes before the rest of the students at the school. Right after dismissal Princess Peach likes to play around in the school yard and we often make our way over to the playground so Princess Peach can play with her friends. But, a [...]

 A few weeks ago, Princess Peach was off school for the first P.D. (Professional Development) Day of the school year. She had a great day planned with a play date at a friend’s house in the morning and then a play date at another friends house in the afternoon.  In between her two play dates, [...]

I survived a 10 day cleanse

My favourite breakfast- a chocolate peanut butter and banana smoothie bowl

Last Monday, I took a huge leap and decided to part-take in a 10 day cleanse. I know what you are thinking. A combination of “she’s crazy” and “I could never do that!” These thoughts went through my head too! But it’s not the type of cleanse you are probably thinking I took part in. [...]

Princess Peach Pampers diapers

This coming Sunday marks my husbands fifth Father’s Day. It’s crazy to think that we have been parents for that long! I don’t often interview people for my blog, let alone my husband, but now that he’s a seasoned father, I thought it would be fun for him to share some of what he has [...]
