Two weeks ago Adam and I were given the rare but great opportunity to have a date night. We were guests at Thrive On! The Three To Be Stems of Hope Gala. This was our second year attending for a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts. I used to be so intimidated by Dana Florence- Co-Founder and Executive Director of Three To Be. I just sit behind my computer and write about cerebral palsy and special needs. Dana made an [...]
Oh hiiiiiii! Didya miss me? I don’t even have some cool reason as to why I haven’t blogged in so long! Let’s pretend I was abducted by aliens. That works for me.
Since my blogging has been on the back burner, I’m challenging myself to blog once a day for a month. Then hopefully I will be back on track and continue posting regularly. I’m also going to start tweeting again. Every once in a while I decide to give myself [...]
We’re being very diligent with our new puppy, Bella as I’m sure most of you are that are dog owners! I mentioned before that I never really pictured myself as a dog person, but Bella has fit in at home quite nicely and we couldn’t imagine her not being a part of our family now! That’s why we’re finding it really important to make sure that Bella (and my family!) stays healthy.
It’s now flea and tick season and it’s important [...]
A lot has happened around here! It seems like the girls just got out from school yet here we are, already in August. One month left until they head back to school. Hard to believe the summer is half over!
In October, Adam and I were given the rare chance to attend the Three To Be Gala- a night to raise money for kids like Jillian with neurological disorders. Among some of the guests, Jillian’s therapist from school was there and [...]
I’m a frequent user of Instagram (as I’m sure you can tell by my sidebar!) and Facebook. I have yet to find the dying love for twitter most bloggers have. But below is a guest post from Amanda who gives us three awesome ways to use technology to create unforgettable memories. How do you use technology to create memories? My husband and I have made a DVD in the past for my inlaws, documenting how their grandchildren (all 5 of [...]
Remember the Month of Mom challenge from last year?? With the help of P&G, and Walmart we’re doing it again! And we’d love to have you follow along with us and enter for a chance to win. Do you know how lucky we are to live in Canada and have fresh and clean drinking water? For the next 14 days, we’re inviting you to play along to show how lucky we are to have clean drinking water. Listed below are [...]
Some exciting stuff coming up around here. Glad to see you back with me! How do you start your day? Lately, I get up and take the dog out to pee, grab the girls some breakfast and grab myself something too. When I did the zone diet a few years ago, I learned how important it was to start with breakfast too. One of my favourites has always been cereal and milk. As far as I can remember, my favourite [...]
Tap…Tap… Is this thing on? So clearly I haven’t been around much. I don’t even have a decent reason! In my last personal post about my lovely lump (not my lovely lady lumps, sadly…) There’s no real update on that front yet. I had my followup with the surgeon where I was told it was ‘nothing…at least for now…’ to contact him if it got bigger/hurt or any other weird changes or in 6 months. I assured him I wouldn’t [...]
Somedays, I wonder what it was like when I had sanity. It seems so long ago! Below is a guest post from Amanda about saving our sanity! Do you guys use any of these tips?
Being a mom is such a beautiful experience. It is also an emotionally and physically draining one. The responsibilities of a mom are a consistent fixture. As a parent we can become consumed with the needs of our kids that we forget our own [...]
First Dr. Seuss, now Shakespeare. I need to just stick to what I know best. I bring this time of year up every. single. time. Mother’s Day just happens to either coincide with my birthday or directly before. As an only child this clearly means, “More presents!” Kidding. Kinda.
Adam tells whoever will listen that I’m difficult to buy for. I find this absolutely ridiculous. It’s so easy to find something for me, he’s the hard one! So, if you’re anything [...]
