Fuller House On Netflix February 26 #streamteam

FULLERHOUSE-VERTICAL_KEYART_US-731x1024

As a kid growing up int he 90s, I was fairly limited in the number of shows I could watch. We didn’t have cable, and our parents were pretty strict about what we could and coudn’t watch. But one show that became a part of my childhood was Full House.  I used to want to be DJ, with her great hair and cool ... Read More »

What We’re Netflixing These Days #streamteam

Netflix

With all this cold winter weather, it’s perfect for cozying up on the couch and streaming some great shows. I’ve also taken up a bit of crocheting again, which pairs very well with Netflix and a cup of hot chocolate! I thought I’d share some of our favourites these days, and maybe get some new ideas from you as well! ... Read More »

Temperature Blanket 2016 – Week 2

Temperature Blanket Week 2

Last week I introduced to you my year-long crochet project: a Temperature Blanket. It’s been so much fun choosing colours and watching them change from day to day, especially with our crazy “El Nino” weather this year! Here’s a picture of the progress so far. Lots of grey (0 to +6 Celsius) and even a row of green (7 degrees!), ... Read More »

In just two weeks, we will be saying goodbye to summer. An end to laid-back, relaxed days, and a return to routines and schedules. It can be a little nerve-wracking for everyone involved. Our 5-year old is now in Senior Kindergarten without his big brother in class with him – big changes. The 6-year old is in Grade 1 – ... Read More »

What My Boys Are Reading this Summer

Boys Reading List

 Short and sweet post today! Our boys are good readers, but don’t LOVE it like I did when I was younger. They don’t tend to sit with a book and read on their own, so I wanted to encourage as much of that as possible this summer. To help with that, we stopped off at the library this morning and ...

One Week Water Challenge #DrinkYourWater

One Week Water Challenge #DrinkYourWater

I am so bad about drinking water. I go for a few weeks of getting my 8 glasses a day, then I get sick of it and drink next to nothing. By bedtime, it’s possible that I’ve only drank a cup or two of coffee, and the milk with my cereal. Isn’t that horrible?!! Imagine how dehydrated I’m getting. And ... Read More »

I am constantly trying to make better choices in my lifestyle – whether it is drinking more water, or being more active.  I find that anything that challenges me, really helps me meet my goals.  That’s why I wanted to get a Fitbit last summer – to track my steps, and encourage me to increase my physical activity level.  About ...

So apparently having four kids is a “big family,” according to most of society. And the fact that they are all boys  - wow, I must really have my hands full! I don’t mind all the comments. A big family is what I grew up with, and I love it. It is busy, noisy, messy, and definitely never boring. Our boys ... Read More »
