Funny how a cheesy little Hallmark holiday can cause such a stir! Making Valentines, treats for the party, a little something for the kids, finding the right shade of red to wear, the perfect card for my hubby, it goes on and on, but oh such fun! This Valentine’s was... Continue reading

In a blink it is the middle of February. As of late, we have been crazy busy, like most…hence the lack of posts. The end of January brought a weeklong work trip for Blaine, out to the west coast. This left mom on her own and without much down time.... Continue reading

For years before I had kids of my own, my sister would complain to me about how her little ones always seemed to have an inkling that their momma had something going on. Every time she had an event, a trip, a long awaited date with her hubby- absolutely anything-... Continue reading

Over the last few weeks I have been making an effort to spice up the meals in our house. I love food so much that I always buy my "food" magazines, but rarely make anything out of them. This week I chose a few dishes I wanted to try and... Continue reading

I've never really thought of myself as a "crafty" person. I know I have the ability to be creative, but crafting has never been my passion. Like my sister, lately I have found myself endlessly browsing Pinterest looking at the incredible DIY projects that are really easy and really cute.... Continue reading

Back in December Nate and I went to Perkins for brunch. While we waited for Blaine and Sarah to join us, we did the activities on the placemat that most restaurants offer. Nate was really into the word searches, the tic tac toe and all of the other activities. He... Continue reading

It started at the beginning of the year when I announced to my little Mags that we would be attending the Taylor Swift concert together in June. Auntie Katie, Mags and I have 3 hot little tickets to the biggest event in June. We are pumped and Mags is absolutely... Continue reading

My first baby is turning three this year and I literally shake my head in disbelief every single day when I think about where the time has gone. My once only child is now a big sister and is growing up in front of my eyes. My big blue eyed... Continue reading

With the new year comes the usual soul searching and reflections of the things that made the Last year so wonderful. We think about how we can recapture more of the same and improve on the places that need it. For me, it's not just about making resolutions, it's that... Continue reading

“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.”~ Seneca 2013. Wow. I remember so clearly the year we brought in the new millennium 13 years ago. On New Year’s Eve 1999, we attended a “progressive” dinner that led... Continue reading

The children were nestled all snug in their beds...thanks to the Santa that visited Sadie's dayccare last week, who told the children that they needed to be in bed early on Christmas eve if they wanted Santa to come. Thankfully, she shared this info with her two older siblings and... Continue reading

December is a whirlwind for all of us. Life is busy enough and when you throw in extra parties, concerts, shopping, wrapping, baking and a variety of other functions, there are very few spare moments. For us, the busyness tends to fall in the first few weeks of December and... Continue reading

You may remember me from a while ago. I was the third blogger on this wonderful little corner of the world wide web, sister to Katie and friend to Shauna. I love being in the company of these 2, I love the truth that is read in these posts and... Continue reading

Somebody once told me that going from no kids to one was more difficult than going from one to two. After welcoming our second baby into the world a short 5 weeks a go, I must say, I respectfully disagree. Clearly I have been MIA from the blog for longer... Continue reading

Not sure if this is a topic I have touched upon before, or one I have always meant to explore further. I do know that when it comes up around our staffroom table at work, the overall consensus is that this is a tough issue to find a groove with.... Continue reading

So last week I had my long awaited Gamma Knife surgery. It isn’t too often that one has brain surgery and needless to say I was a little leery going in. The day started bright and early and as Blaine and I left the house just after 5:00 am I... Continue reading

Last Friday, five of my favourite ladies from work, and myself headed down south to see Madonna in concert. It was a whirlwind of a trip full of a million laughs, a ton of shopping and a big show that did not disappoint. As we headed to Fargo the first... Continue reading

I am in desperate need of some help moms!! Over the Summer we were in Gimli enjoying a fabulous family outing with Jared's sister and her little guy when he stopped to have his face painted. After a few moments he emerged as Batman with an almost identical mask across... Continue reading

We are a board game family. We have always played them with the kid. These include Chutes and Ladders, Candyland, Guess Who, and Trouble to name a few. And as the kids have grown and matured so has our repertoire of family games. Most recently we have added 3 classics... Continue reading

When I recall my childhood, have erased the multitude of fights and scraps that I shared with my little sister. Those memories have been completely wiped from my recollections and replaced with fond memories of the 2 of us in family harmony. That's not entirely true, I can still think... Continue reading

Our days spent at Magic Kingdom were like bookends on our trip. We spent two days there…..our first day at Disney and our last. I don’t think one day is enough for MK. It is big, full of tons to do and the nighttime show cannot be missed. MK is... Continue reading

I love the fall. I love the feeling of starting fresh. I love the return to routine and getting back into the swing of things. I love the fun and the celebrations; Thanksgiving, Halloween, tons of birthdays, soon followed by the commencement of Christmas festivities. I love the return of... Continue reading
