Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Well this post has been long overdue! We’ve had a lot going on the last couple of months but I think we’re finally settled! We moved just after the New Year and I have to say I really hope we won’t be doing that again anytime soon! We were very lucky that we got two […]

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

What a whirlwind! Since the beginning of November these last two months feel like they have flown by. Here we are on Christmas Eve Eve and I’m so glad it fell on a Saturday this year. It’s nearly noon and we are still in our PJs just chilling and easing ourselves into our Holiday Festivities. […]

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

For our family there are two things that mark the beginning of Christmas. Santa Train Light the Square Once we’ve enjoyed a ride on the Santa Train  courtesy of the Credit Valley Explorer and watched the lighting of the tree at City Hall, we are brimming with the holiday spirit. I’ve been Christmas shopping since […]

Embracing the Chaos?

This last week has literally been chaos. Up until this point I thought we were doing a pretty good job at embracing our daily mayhem. This week, just getting everyone out the door anyway near on time has been a challenge. We’ve had meltdowns over pants feeling funny and toddlers wanting baths as we need […]

A House Hunting We Will Go…

Oh my what a crazy week! My husband and I have been leisurely looking at houses since August. We currently live in a two-bedroom walk-up. And when I say walk-up, I’m not kidding. We live on the third floor and we have to walk up 3 flights of stairs to get to our place. We’ve […]

A day in the life of me! 16,660 steps today. The three 6s in a row is kinda weirding me out! Especially this close to Halloween. Clearly, I’m easily spooked! I’m just back to wearing my FitBit after a good break. It never ceases to amaze me how many steps I can collect in a […]

FRI*nally!

I’m not sure if it was just me, but this week was LOOOOONNNNG! I managed to get through Thursday and today with a lot of coffee (thank you Starbucks) and naps on the train. I often wish I could add a few more hours to the day, but with a sick toddler (who has a little […]

Pickles Anyone?

One of my favourite things about this time of year is when my parents get ready for winter with jarring tomatoes and best of all the pickling of all kinds of veggies. (Pictured above is beets combined with red cabbage.) I LOVE anything pickled, except for pickles. Which is strange because I enjoy cucumbers and […]

Power Outages!

Power is back on! It’s crazy how much losing electricity slaps you in the face.  We lost power for about 2 hours today after a rain and wind storm swooped in out of nowhere. The kids took it pretty well. At least they did until they had to go to the bathroom by candlelight and […]

It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like….

Cranberry ginger ale is now in stores! And I don’t even want to say it, but to me it’s the first sign that Christmas is right around the corner! I know, I know…Thanksgiving is barely over and we haven’t even celebrated Halloween yet! The tricky thing about cranberry ginger ale is that it’s only around […]
