{FAMILY} 4 Reasons To Love Peekaboo Beans

DID YOU KNOW? Many of you have already heard of this fabulous clothing brand for kids, but do you know where Peekaboo Beans got their name? The name stemmed from a game the Founder used to play with her kids – she would squeeze edamame beans out of their pods in a fun and playful […]

{FAMILY} Back-To-School Finds: Butler Overboots

We’ve had months of beautiful Summer weather in Vancouver, but with the return of the rain comes the return of routine for many families like ours, as we prepare our children for back to school. And while I’m looking forward to the excitement of a new school year, this time of year is always especially chaotic as […]

{FAMILY} You Can’t Handle The Tooth!

Fact: teething bites (pun very much intended). I’m on my third tooth-bearing child, and let me tell you, it doesn’t get any easier. No matter how much practice you get, those baby chiclets will sneak up on you, and hit you like a slap in the face. One minute your baby is sleeping well and melting your heart […]

{TRAVEL} Springs RV Resort (Harrison Hot Springs)

Our family loves to explore local travel destinations, and Harrison Hot Springs has always been at the top of our list of family favourite getaways. And while we’ve always vacationed at the same resort in years past, this year we were invited to try something a little different – a weekend stay at Springs RV […]

{FAMILY} Why I Quit Using Cloth Diapers

I successfully used cloth diapers for baby #3, and I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it for as long as I did (almost a year). I saved a lot of money (especially since the cloth diapers I was using had a great ROI – I was able to sell them for a great […]

{FAMILY} BABYBJÖRN Bouncer Mini

BABYBJÖRN has always been a trusted brand in my house. All three of my children spent their earliest months cradled in the comfort of a BABYBJÖRN carrier, and I felt comfortable knowing that they were safe and secure, snuggled up against my body. Last month I was invited to a BABYBJÖRN product launch, and I couldn’t wait to […]

{RECIPE} Our Favourite Meatloaf

I’m not sure why I don’t make meatloaf more often. It’s so simple to make, and my kids love it! It’s like a giant meatball packed with veggies and protein, topped with sweet tomato sauce – perfect for picky palates. This was quite possibly the easiest dinner I have ever made for my family. You […]

{RECIPE} Chicken And Broccoli Alfredo

In a house full of picky eaters, it’s challenging to find dinners that satisfy the taste buds of my little babes. And while their palates have varying preferences, there are two ingredients that always seem to appease the whole gang – chicken, and broccoli. A meat, and a veggie. It could be worse, right? Before I became […]

{FAMILY} Floating: My First Time

I had heard about sensory deprivation (or “floating”) from friends and fellow bloggers, and to be honest, the idea kind of freaked me out. The thought of floating in complete silence and darkness in an enclosed space for a long period of time sounded scary, odd, and anything but relaxing. Not to mention the negative connotations […]

{FAMILY} Creativ Music Centre: Piano Lessons For Kids

I have always had a love for music. Growing up, musical lessons were always a part of my life – from violin lessons, to singing lessons, to piano lessons – which I stuck with for almost a decade. Listening to music was an inherent part of my everyday life – I awoke each morning to a music-blasting alarm […]
