Mother’s Day Traditions

Royal Botanical Gardens Lilacs

When you live two hours away from your mom, and Toronto is in between the two of you, you don’t get together maybe as often as you might like. We don’t do Sunday Dinners together, and we can’t do Mother’s Day together unless she comes here for the weekend or we go there for the whole day or weekend.  However, ... Read More »

Netflix Playlists: Uniting Siblings EVERYWHERE! #streamteam

24976160 - Fuller House

I don’t know about your kids, but ours do not always get along the greatest. It’s nothing BIG, usually, but lots of little bickering. Who kicked who, who stole their toy, who gets to play Wii first, who gets to choose the music. Sometimes it’s enough to drive me crazy!! Netflix recognizes this struggle and has some great solutions!! They’ve come ... Read More »

Temperature Blanket 2016 Month Two

12910666_10153961988860915_546066207_n

I’ve completed two months of my Temperature blanket! For those who may have missed it, I’m crocheting one row a day on an afghan, based on the day’s highest temperature. This month had my son’s birthday, so I used a silver yarn for that day (kind of hard to see in the picture). There was also an extra day, due ... Read More »

The Best Kind of Book Club (And No, You Can’t Join!)

The WINE

It’s World Book Day today and as I was thinking about what I should write about, I realized that a post on my book club – the Best Book Club in the World – is long over due.   Six years ago I sat in the lunch room with three of my co-workers commiserating about our respective book clubs. We ... Read More »

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 »

 Two of my favourite parts about Christmas have to be: baking delicious treats, and watching amazing Christmas movies! I’m so happy that Netflix has so many great Christmas titles this year for family movie watching! There’s nothing better than pulling a batch of freshly-baked cookies out of the oven and settling down with some hot chocolate for a Christmas movie!  ... Read More »

T Minus 15 Days Until Gainful Employment

I’ve been a little quiet on the blog for the last month, mostly since I found out that I got a job that I had applied for and would be starting said job on December 1st.  As you know, last spring my husband was accepted to Grad School, something that set off a chain reaction of pretty big events in ...
