mini-wheat weekend

Trey was in Europe all last week and we were managing just fine, and then Thursday night hit us and it was all down hill. I was super tired so I went to bed at 9pm (good thinking right, get as much rest as the kiddos). Murphy’s law was in full effect, midnight rolled around and I rolled into the bathroom and stayed there for 2.5hrs throwing up, I thought.. Read More

for the love of peeps

Guilty pleasure, I LOVE Peeps! There I said it. They are everywhere right now and it’s taking all of my self control not to buy a pack every single time I go to the supermarket. I will indulge in some beloved Peeps closer to Easter weekend, but for now I’m all broccoli and carrots, sad face. And in the meantime I have been planning for Easter and picking up outfits..

kisses + disses

It’s hard to remember all the funny, weird, loving things that Thomas and Zoe say and do but I want to remember them because they’re awesome. We have had some good ones lately. So here are some of our high and lows, or kisses + disses if you will.  : Disses : 1. Thomas has been in a “something scared me” phase for about two weeks now. Our amazing sleeper.. Read More

good-bye february

Whew, we made it through the coldest February in history since records were kept. Thankfully the last weekend of February was a mild one and we took full advantage.  We spent Saturday morning at St.Lawrence Market, we have never went with both kids on foot so we were a bit nervous. We are so glad that we went, Thomas and Zoe were in heaven. They were obsessed with the live.. Read More

day dreaming

It’s Monday! According to Yahoo Weather it “feels like” -25C today, so naturally I’m cozied up on the sofa day dreaming of summer days and swimsuits. I am the worst at choosing a swimsuit and by worst I mean best because I just choose them all. I always have a good handful of swimsuits on deck as I love to mix it up. I have to admit that at the..

pancake tuesday & a polar vortex

This past week was a four day week and it flew by especially fast. We kicked it off by celebrating  Pancake Tuesday we do this every year, but the timing couldn’t have worked out better because I had absolutely zero groceries in the house. I whipped up some batter, did a quick fruit run with Thomas and Zoe and dinner was done. Pancakes for any meal goes a long way in our.. Read More

funny little valentines

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Valentines Day is one of my least favourite holidays, it’s just so contrived. I do however, like celebrating the holiday with my little ones. Valentines Day coincided with Family Day weekend here in Canada and so we were able to enjoy an extra long weekend together. I may be biased but is there anything more precious than seeing moments like these.. Read More

valentines day prep

The kids did a mid-week Valentines party last week with our nanny as she was taking off on Wednesday night for an extra long weekend of skiing and relaxing. Sigh, so jealous. So that meant I spent some time early in the week prepping. For her gift, I opted for homemade shortbread cookies, chocolate, Essie nail polish all stuffed into a DIY coffee mug. Our fantastic nanny loved all of it, I.. Read More

mini-wheat weekend

For some reason unknown to us our kids have been waking up at 5am on the dot for the past month. Yes, I said 5am and yes, I said for the past month. ugh! This is especially sucky on weekends where 48hrs already feels like 96hrs, and those hours go by slowly. Friday night Thomas took to wearing my toque and looked like quite the hipster. Zoe kept trying.. Read More

a blur of a week

Last week was a blur, but we made it. Trey was out of town all week, so I was flying solo with the kids, this means sleepovers, brinners and lots of hanging out with no pants on. An of course lots of post bath selfies. In addition to that, I was interviewing my a$$ off. The company I work for closed, although we have known since December the announcement went.. Read More
