Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival is a rock and roll good time

Yesterday was the big day in Ottawa: three performances of Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival! We arrived nice and early to the Canadian Tire Centre so we had lots of time to pick up our tickets, grab a little something to eat, and check out the souvenirs. We had told our daughters before we went that they could each pick out one souvenir, with parental approval, and Ashlyn honed in on a Jasmine doll immediately, while Rowan went for a Jessie doll. From almost the first note, both of my Read more […]

Start 2015 on the organized foot with Personal-Planner.com (#giveaway)

Can you believe that there is less than one month left in 2014? This year has just flown by and the plans for next year are already in full swing. I worked with Personal-planner.com earlier this year and I love my planner so much that I had to get another for 2015! There are four sizes available and I really debated between the A5 (5.8″ x 8.1″), which I had for 2014, and the Square (5.8″ x 5.6″). Ultimately, I stuck with the size that I know and ordered the A5 because I like having the Read more […]

Watch Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells (#giveaway)

Here in Ottawa, December 22 is the first day of the Christmas break for the public schools, which means the beginning of the all-day “Is it Christmas yet? Is it Christmas yet?” line of questioning. Sounds like a great day to plan an outing to see “Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” presented by Centrepointe Theatres in Ottawa. With two shows, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., there should be a good time for any Junie B. fan to attend! It’s holiday time and everyone’s favorite first grader Read more […]

Lostmy.name lets all kids star in their own story (#giveaway)

When considering names for my daughters, having personalized items easily available didn’t occur to me. After all, my name is apparently spelled in an unusual way (that darn “e” is almost always missed) so I never really had any personalized pencils or door hangers and I survived. The rise in nontraditional names has lead to a great new trend: personalized products that allow YOU to spell the child’s name instead of trying to find the name on a per-printed product! Lostmy.name creates an entire Read more […]
