Wordless Wednesday – Autumn Sunset

Autumn Muskoka

It was the last weekend our family would spend at our trailer in Muskoka this year. We decided to head to the lake to watch the sun set.  Our excitement level was high, we scrambled to find the perfect spot before we lost the sun.  Mr. Sun took a while to set, hubby’s look tells […]

Equal Sweetener hunt at Blissdom Canada


A couple of weeks ago I told you all about my mini Tim Hortons Playdate on the search for Equal sweetener for Collective Bias.

Tim Hortons Mini Playdate

Tim Hortons

Everyday after school my girls beg me for a playdate with a friend, more often than not I have to answer no.

Busy Kids?

First Day of School

September is my least favorite month of the year, it’s when we gear up for the hectic pace of the year. The fall weather brings sadness to certain members of our family, mainly myself because I have to wear socks and complain often about it. Of course the first big event in September was the first day of […]
