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 [...]

First Descents is a life changing experience

Prior to my cancer diagnosis, I considered myself a pretty happy person. I always saw the good in people or situations,  and tried to laugh as much as possible. But, I did a few things that didn’t make me a happy person. I would stress and over-react about little things. Like a lot. Blow them [...]

Lies I tell my kids

My So-Called Mommy Life

I love my kids. They are my sun, moon and stars. I love them more than the whole wide world and back again. But, I lie to them. Pretty much all the time. Maybe its the nice weather and we are out all the time, or maybe it’s just that the are getting older and [...]

A heart full of love

thank you

I have to thank everyone for all the messages, emails, texts, phone calls, snail mail, packages, flowers, food, company and most importantly support that I received since I’ve shared the news about my cancer diagnosis. It has been nothing short of overwhelming and has made me realized how loved I am by so many people. [...]

Most Sundays, my kids and I along with my parents and occasionally The Hubster and Auntie Beige go to visit my grandparents. I’ve said this many, many times before that my kids are SO incredibly lucky to have 3 living great-grandparents in their lives. We surprised my Nana on Sunday and had some snacks with [...]

A toddlers summer bucket list or 35 things to do with your toddler in the summer

Having a toddler at home in the summer time is a lot of fun but also draining! We are always busy doing something. The best part about the summertime is that many of the activities that we are doing are free or low-cost. Sure, I’ve made a few trips to the store to buy some [...]

Brush without a fuss thanks to Kandoo detangler

Kandoo Detangler

When The Hubster and I were dating and we would talk about our future I would tell him “I just want to have kids with curly hair”. Being a straight-haired girl I always longed to be like my friends who would wash their hair, add some mousse and just go. They would have their long [...]
