Installation Day! Kitchen Reno Part 5

The last video I shared was of Tempate Day, about 2 weeks ago. Following Template Day, we were sent an awesome powerpoint via email that mapped out our slab onto our counters so that we could see exactly how and where the veining would appear. I was actually unsure about one particularly prominent vein in the middle […]

The #CheeriosEffect – My Story of Connection

Tips for Staying on Target for #BackToSchool

It’s hard to believe that the summer is coming to a close and that the kids will soon be back in school.

Last 24 hrs: Target Canada & USA Prices: Identical.

Our family just returned from a weekend visit to the US where we did some relaxing as well as some shopping.  Of course, no visit across the border is ever complete without a shop-through at Target, so we happily spent some time there yesterday afternoon.

A World Without Dieting

I cringe when I hear people talking about “dieting” or “going on a diet”, especially in front if my children. That’s why when I found out about the Cheerios “A World Without Dieting – Take the Oath” campaign, I knew that this would be up my alley. Those who know me on a personal level know that […]

The Not-So-Hidden Danger of e-Readers & Other Mobile Devices: The Charger.

iPods, e-readers, cell phones & tablets, cameras, laptops and more. We live among an array of portable e-devices and each one of them comes with its very own charger.

Thoughts, Reactions & a Few Giggles #TheMorningAfter

My morning has been consumed with happiness, relief, and that feeling you get when you find something after almost conceding that you might have lost it forever…but still holding onto that shred of hope.
