If I asked you what colour you associated with Halloween what do you think you would answer? Orange? Maybe black? What about red? Well there is a new colour in town for Halloween and it is so not what you are thinking. It’s teal. Teal as in that often loud, garish colour combo of blue and green. Pretty in it’s own right, but still a hard colour to pull off, let alone find. Teal as in the colour for Food Allergy Awareness. Come on, you had to know I would be bringing up food allergies sooner or later. Halloween is the perfect time for it! Continue reading
Vacationing in Niagara Falls may seem cliche to some, but for this resident of Southern Ontario it is anything but. I consider myself fortunate to live just down the highway from this natural wonder and we make the hour and an half drive several times a year to visit. Niagara Falls has so much to offer besides the spectacular views of the beautiful falls; from shopping and dining to the casinos, shows and out-of-the-norm places to visit (think Guinness World Records Museum). All of this, and more, is available to be enjoyed year round! Continue reading
Welcome and bienvenue to the Canadian WAHM Superheroes Super Giveaway, hosted by Lindsay at Maman Loup’s Den!
When Lindsay first took the plunge into becoming a Work-at-Home Mom, she went in search of a community of fellow WAHMs with whom to network. Finding only resources suitable to American Moms, she decided to create her own group. She called it “Canadian WAHM Superheroes” because it can sometimes take superhuman powers to manage a home-based business and a home!
This giveaway highlights the creations of 11 Canadian WAHMs and is open to their target audience: CANADIANS! (Shipping costs make cross-border business pretty tricky)
Check out these 10 awesome prizes for 11 lucky-duck Canuck winners: Continue reading
The last thing I thought I would ever eat and actually enjoy is this salad. Yes, it does actually contain quinoa, kale and butternut squash and yes it does actually taste really good! Both quinoa and kale are considered to be super healthy due to all the great nutrients they contain. Read up on them if you really want to know more, but the most important part, the taste, I can vouch for. They were pretty good! Canadians celebrated our Thanksgiving last weekend and it was my lovely Mama who decided to make this concoction. I must point out that she got the recipe from the Marilyn Denis Show and it was showcased by chef Lynn Crawford. Being a blogger and not being very good at cooking I jumped at the chance to help out and share this dish with you. Continue reading
MapleMouseMama is getting a facelift! With that comes a few changes and updates and one of those is the creation of some new pages. Stay tuned for the reveal very soon!
Are you excited? I sure am!
As MapleMouseMama grows I find myself more involved with followers, other blogs, brands and even causes. So, to that end I must add some protection, just in case. This disclosure is not perfect in any sense but I think it gets the job done. So let’s begin: Continue reading
In a few short weeks Ontarians over the age of 18 will have the opportunity to vote in our municipal elections. The sad fact is that many will not exercise this right. I have always wondered why. To be able to vote is to give your opinions a voice. Voting is your chance to help shape the future of your community, while improving it’s present. Continue reading
Every year the family and I look forward to spending Halloween together. It has become a tradition to spend it with my nieces and make a little party of it (whether it falls on a school night or not). Every year the girls painstakingly do up their costumes, making sure their make up is just right and the hem is not too long. Photos are snapped and reflector tape is added to their bags (much to their chagrin). Excitement really does fill the air as one by one the kids; Krystin, Kayla, Emily and William, hurry us along to get out the door and start trick or treating. Youthful innocence is evident at every laugh and every fake scream of fear. Continue reading
