Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

This time last week I was here – enjoying my last days on a Caribbean adventure, just the hubs and I. While we had a fabulous time, nothing compares to the feeling of holding my babies in my arms after 10 days apart. Many friends have asked me how I was able to do it, to leave […]

Why I Don’t Miss My High School Days

I’ve decided to do a list of 10 Things I Don’t Miss About My High School Days: 1) My bushy eyebrows. My eyebrows rivalled Oscar the Grouch in brow density. My friends couldn’t stand the sight of them any longer, so they pinned me down, lathered my face in Orajel, and plucked away. It took […]

Bits of BOO

Let me start this post with a bit of advice: Sometimes complimenting someone on their Halloween costume is like congratulating a woman on her pregnancy – be 100% sure you’re right before you do it. I didn’t make this mistake myself today, but let’s just say I came very close. ————————————————————————————————- We’ve done it – we’ve survived […]

I Indulge. No Regrets.

This week I thought I would make a list of my top “guilty pleasures”. I’ve made my list, I’ve checked it twice, and if your list matches mine, I think we should become virtual BFFs! Latte. Baileys. Delicious. How can I resist this tasty beverage? Look at it and try not to crave one. So what if I have […]

How I Came To Bee

When I first saw the topic for this week’s Moday Listicles, I was going to opt out. It gave me flashbacks of my childhood which was laden with projects surrounding the theme of “family trees”. Teachers prompted us to explore our lineages – to draw trees with photos and dotted lines connecting our family members, showing how we were made, where we […]

A Four To Be Reckoned With

I’ve been posting quotes by my little Sassy McSasserson on Facebook (and later Twitter) since she was two, and my friends have always told me that I could write a book with the things that come out of her mouth. Now that she’s 4, she’s definitely a four to be reckoned with. So tonight, my list […]

Summer Tweets

I’ve decided to summarize my Summer by listing 10 of my favourite summer tweets! 1) “Kudos to the loyal Vancouverites who are outside right now volunteering their time to clean up our city. Those are the real fans.” – June 16, 2011 My summer started off on a bit of a low point. We were this […]

Change Ahead

Today’s post is inspired by the word “change”, and by the phenomenal weekend I’ve enjoyed with my family – which has renewed my positive outlook on my busy but precious life. I’m going to start my week by focusing less on venting about the things I cannot change, and focusing more on changing my attitude towards the things I […]

My Life As A Dog (Monday Listicles)

Today I’m going to use animal-related comparisons to describe the challenges I face on a daily basis. 1) Trying to get my toddler to sleep is like trying to catch a mosquito – it’s challenging to do, it takes a lot of patience, and you don’t want to quit until you get the job done. […]
