…..for your thighs! Wondering what to do with the leftover Easter Candy?  Wait, do you have leftover Easter Chocolate because we did not.   So I did what any good chocoholic in the Suburbs does; I went to the Bulk Barn and stocked up on mini eggs!  Why?  Simply so I could re-create the best, most […]

Some days were just meant for a ride.  This Easter Weekend my SassyNephew threw on his Joovy Noodle Helmet especially designed for Toddler size people, and showed us how to take to the road in style! Step one: Check the tires. Step two:  Place Grandma’s pillow so he can reach the “gas”. Step three:  Hit […]

Switching Up My Snacking With #PROTINIS

This weekend, if I saw it, I ate it.  Glazed ham, devilled eggs, pasta salad, chips and dip, turkey and stuffing, and the chocolate!  Oh my, the chocolate!!  It was not a healthy weekend in the snacking department.  As a Mama of two very active girls I am a firm believer in snacks to get […]

Carrying On With One Twisted Easter

When my girls were wee, Easter Morning was all squeals and sunshine.  Running from behind doors, to peeking under couches.  Skipping while searching and competing to see who could find the most Easter Eggs.  I frantically tried to capture the moment with my camera, while their Dad straggled behind grinning and rubbing his eyes; both […]

Three cities, four days, two very proud parents. Yes, some awards and medals were won, and a few tears were shed, but most importantly, memories were made.  Now we catch our breath until the next event, thankful for incredible coaches and healthy happy girls.  I hope you enjoyed this very late and “almost” Wordless Wednesday, […]

How often to you run to the kitchen for a drink of cold refreshing water?  Do you ever leave the tap running as you brush your teeth?  Are you like me and are truly looking forward to celebrating the arrival of summer with an icy cold lemonade?  Dozens of times each and every day I […]

On a recent trip to Toronto I took time out for a slow and easy dinner with an old friend.  The slow pace didn’t last when that old friend presented a challenge; to track down a shop in Toronto rumoured to make the very best macaroons this side of Paris.  Hmm did I want to […]

Spring is here!  Spring is finally here!  Finally in South Western Ontario the sun came out, the snow has almost melted and winter finally took it’s last dying breath.  I did what ever self respecting Mama in the Suburbs does; threw open my windows and started yelling at my kids to help me “clean up […]
