Sign me up please! This year we have the perfect outing that will make each of my kiddos happy and allow my husband and I to spend some special time with them – Family Day at Glama Gal Tween Spa!

Banana Bread Breakfast Muffins

breakfast muffins

Most of my weekday morning meals, AKA breakfast, are taken in the car when I am on my way to work.  For this reason that oh so important meal of the day can often be unhealthy.  Time is my biggest factor in having a good, filling breakfast so finding recipes that I can take “on the go” are important.  That is why I love this recipe for Banana Bread Breakfast Muffins that my dear hubby has concocted.  Add in a baggie of apple slices and a yogurt at my desk and I am good to go! Give them a try and make sure to let me know what you think of this great recipe. Continue Reading →

Disney World, Here We Come!

Disney World

The year 2015 has not started off with the blogging bang I had planned for technical reasons, so it is catch up time. I had planned to do a recap of 2014, and who knows, I still might, but I did want to share one thing that happened at Christmas that I am super pumped about.  As you can tell from my wonderfully grainy photo the kids are pretty excited too. :-) Continue Reading →

Head “Into The Woods” To See A Great Movie #Review

Into The Woods
Check out this entertaining review of Disney’s “Into The Woods” by our contributor Lindsey Reeder of reederreads.com! You can check out Lindsey’s bio as well. Thanks for the great review Lindsey!
A few weeks prior to Into the Woods movie premiere hit theatres, I had a friend that offered ’10 friendship points’ to the friend that managed to score early screening passes to the Toronto viewing of the new Disney movie starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick (to name a few). Lucky for me, I was the friend that got to collect those friendship points, because on December 17th, a week before it’s opening, we went to see Into the Woods! You’ll be happy to know, I managed to score an extra 10 points after the movie was over, because the film was that good, to which I had nothing to do with, but I claimed them anyway.

Transform Your Room With Evgie Wall Decals #Giveaway Open WorldWide!

evgie wall decal

Ever daydream about redoing a room in your house? Maybe plan a new way to put the furniture, a new colour for the walls and then some matching throw pillows for an accent?  I love to dream up new ways to change the look of our home, but I am not a fan of painting. And come to think of it, I am not terribly creative in choosing the right colours either. That is why I love Evgie.com and their huge array of vinyl decals which enable non decorators like me to change up the look of a room in a small amount of time with very little fuss.  The decals are easy to apply, or remove and tailoring them to a specific wall or surface is, well, easy! :-) Continue Reading →

Holiday Smells Aren’t Always Pretty. That’s Why We Have GLAD


This time of the year the smell of gingerbread and hot chocolate often fills the air, in homes, stores and bakeries, right? Mmmm, I just love it. :-)  During the holidays we tend to spend a lot of time in the house, baking, entertaining, watching Christmas movies and just enjoying our home.  Sometimes we might get a little lazy and leave a chore or two for a day, like say, taking out the trash.  You know what I mean, right?  You try and squish some refuse down into the overfilling bag, hoping it can take another day’s worth and then it hits you – the smell. Yuck! I truly can not stand the smell of garbage. What is that old expression? Gag me with a spoon, or in this case, gag me with the smell of garbage!   Continue Reading →

Making Memories OneDay At A Time #OneDayKids #Giveaway #Review

oneday app

One of the things I love about this time of the year is comparing my kiddos photos from Christmases past.  I can see how much they have grown, and hopefully matured. ;-)  Snapping a quick photo on my iPhone makes it easy to capture those memories, but a new app has helped up my game.  The OneDay Instant Movie Maker app is the best thing I have come across this season, and that includes a 70% off sale at Coach. (Okay, I am kidding about the sale, but still..)  Continue Reading →
