#StoneCounterDreams – Part 3: The Ordering Process

After deciding on a colour, it was time to place the order. In order to do that I had to first take some rough measurements of my countertops, which I did. As part of the ordering process, I also had to sign a checklist agreeing to do several things in preparation for ‘Template day’ (Measuring […]

Kitchen Counters: Why Choose Stone?

Have you ever fantasized about stone countertops?  I certainly have. Well, I have decided to stop fantasizing and made a decision: we are switching from laminate countertops to stone! Some water infiltration around the faucet on one of the counters has caused the pressed wood to rot, so rather than just repair that one counter with […]

No More Stinky Car Smell!

“Ugh, WHAT is that smell???” “Maybe it’s the apple core you left in the back seat last week, or that half-eaten cheese stick, or the blueberry muffin remnants…” “It’s gross” “I agree!  That’s why Daddy & I always ask you to throw out whatever is left of your car snacks.  Now we all get to […]

Our Family Adventure with Mickey Matson…and Netflix ;)

When my kids were younger, each had their own bottle. When I became aware of the ‘mouche bébé’ (nasal aspirator) – they each […]

Blended: The Movie – A Good Laugh :)

I was fortunate to attend the Premiere of Blended with Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore on Wednesday Night and I have to tell you that I loved it! Although the storyline was light and predictable, the jokes kept the entire theatre laughing out loud the whole way through. You absolutely do not have to be part […]
