Shushybye (giveaway)

We’re very lucky that bedtime isn’t a battle in our house, but not everyone shares that experience!  Ashlyn loves her bedtime stories and we were happy to add a book from Shushybye to our lineup. We received Shushybye: Close Your Eyes, which comes with comes with an audio CD of the entire story narrated by Shushybye’s official storyteller, Kenny Curtis.  I love that option because it means that when we’re driving, or I need a few minutes to put Rowan down for a nap, Ashlyn can still hear Read more […]

Easy Canvas Prints

It’s funny how you can live in a house for a while and suddenly decide that something is all wrong and needs to be fixed right now!  For me, it’s the stairway from the main level to the upstairs.  We have a large painting on one wall (that we literally bought off the wall of a bar back when we were dating in university) but the other wall is completely blank and it’s really bothering me.  I wanted to do a photo wall but didn’t know where to start.

40 Love (giveaway)

40 Love was the first book that Madeleine Wickham actually wrote, long before she established herself as a go-to author for fun, chick-lit books like her Shopaholic series (under the name Sophie Kinsella). “At their country estate, Patrick Chance and his wife make a fateful decision to host a seemingly innocuous weekend tennis party – “seemingly” being the operative word here.  As the four couples gather on the sunny terrace over the brilliant weekend, it becomes quickly obvious who Read more […]

Bright Starts Pretty in Pink Put and Take Purse (giveaway)

Although it may be hard to believe, since we have 2 daughters, we’re actually not over-run with baby toys.  Don’t get me wrong, we’ve got plenty of toys, but not a lot that are safe and appropriate for Rowan to use at 5 months old.  She’s getting to that fun age where she can pick up toys and is interesting in playing, so we were happy to add Bright Starts Pretty in Pink Put and Take Purse to our collection. Featuring a large plastic purse with a bow that plays different sounds, it comes with Read more […]
