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 […]

Give your Disney fan Planes: Fire & Rescue this holiday

This summer, I took my girls to the movie theatre as a special treat and we saw Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue. There was action, adventure and lots of laughs and my youngest daughter in particular really fell in love with the characters. She’s even picked a Dusty ornament for our Christmas tree this year! When my friends at Disney sent me a copy to review, while I was sure that Rowan would have loved to open it at Christmas, I knew I couldn’t keep it until  wraps for over a month. As soon Read more […]

Hosting a Crafternoon party with Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes Crafternoon

Since moving to Ottawa 4.5 years ago, I have been very fortunate to make some amazing friends who have become like family to me. From the time our oldest kids were about 15 months old until they started junior kindergarten last year, we would get together at least once a week and often much more frequently than that! While we still get together with the younger kids on a weekly basis, the four oldest kids go to three different schools since most of us are in different neighbourhoods so Ashlyn doesn’t Read more […]
