Family Favourite Veggie Loaded Cheeseburger Pasta Dinner

2020-05-18T22:33:29-07:00May 19th, 2020|Dinner, Eat|0 Comments

This veggie loaded cheeseburger pasta dinner is a family favourite in our house. They love the cheesy pasta and I love that it's loaded with veggies and fairly easy to cook. It's one of those meals that you can load it up with whatever vegetables need to be eaten from the fridge. This particular time I used onions, mushrooms and zucchini, and normally I like adding red or green peppers too. Related [...]

DIY Playroom Teepee Makeover

2020-05-08T10:35:29-07:00May 8th, 2020|Home, Toddlers|0 Comments

The kid's playroom has never quite felt right for me. It's an awkward space with a huge baby gate wrapping around our wood stove making the actual play space quite narrow. Previously our playroom teepee was in the corner but it felt like it took up more room. Moving it to the center has actually made it feel more open and given us some usable space on each side for toy storage. [...]

DIY Board and Batten Bathroom Makeover

2020-05-01T13:57:59-07:00May 1st, 2020|DIY, Home|2 Comments

This bathroom makeover has been much needed and I love the look of our new DIY board and batten. Two years ago we moved into our 90's home I knew all of our bathrooms needed a major facelift, but they fell to the bottom of the list while we reno'd our downstairs kitchen and living spaces. When our toilet broke after Logan's Curious George birthday party, it gave us the push we [...]

2020-04-09T23:04:04-07:00April 10th, 2020|Gardening, Home, Lifestyle|0 Comments

For years I killed every plant I touched and I had no idea how to care for houseplants even though I really wanted them. Thankfully I've been able to pass that hurdle as I've learned more and more and turned my black thumb into a green thumb. If you have that problem, you're not a lost cause! With a little practice you can totally turn things around. Now having plants has turned [...]

Best Educational Apps for Toddlers

2020-04-01T23:59:38-07:00April 2nd, 2020|Activities, Family, Toddlers|5 Comments

Screen time can be such a controversial topic for some, but whether your kid is in front of a screen for hours a day, or closely monitored and time restricted, I think we can all agree that it's great when they're engaging with something that's educational. But, not all apps are created equal and it's surprisingly hard to find good ones that are age appropriate. That's why I've compiled this list of [...]

I used to suck at plants! It was terrible, I’ve even killed multiple succulents 🙈 but I’ve always loved the feeling they bring into the home and have been determined to turn my black thumb green. Slowly over the last few years I’ve been successful at keeping more and more alive, and that’s in big part to my favourite garden center, GardenWorks Canada and them helping teach me which plants are good [...]

Today's Fashion Friday is totally extra and I'm loving it! Leopard coats can be really intimidating but they're surprisingly versatile and do just as good dressed down as they do dressed up. This particular leopard coat from Shop Beautifully You [gifted] is soooooooooo amazingly soft, I can't stop touching it and rubbing it on my cheeks, seriously, I'm obsessed! It feels like a nice warm fuzzy housecoat that gives you an extra [...]
