Flea and Tick Season- Protecting your Fury Friend- Review/Giveaway

Blogger reader giveaway

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 [...]

The Lokomat- A Research Study

lokomat4

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 [...]

Three Awesome Ways To Use Technology To Create Memories

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 [...]

Kellogg’s Cereal & Milk- Giveaway!

kelloggs

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 [...]

A New Addition!

bella

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 [...]

Saving Our Sanity- 5 Easy Tips

sanity

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 [...]

Mothers Day Cometh!

JCLittle-Motherhood-book-frontcover-555

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 [...]

A Lump Is A Lump, Except When It’s Not

skittletits

That’s my lame attempt at channelling my inner Dr. Seuss. I’ll stick to the sporadic blog writing, I think! Let me tell you a story. I’m hoping that maybe this story will help others as I have learned more and more people have similar experiences yet we never talk about it. Warning upfront that this post will talk about many different “female” issues, none of them fun!
Almost 2 months ago, I noticed some breast tenderness and brushed it off. It’s [...]

I’m Just A Spectator…

isolette

Often when I’m reading other blogs that my friends have shared, I think “I really should write about this!” and then file that idea away, and promptly forget about it. It’s rare that I read something and immediately feel the need to write some of my own experiences out after reading a post. Thanks to Lesley for sharing this post.
Rounding a corner in the hall of a hospital yesterday, I was knocked briefly off my feet. No one ran by [...]
