2017 Summer Fun Bucket List

It's summer break! While I'm hoping that this won't be my last summer off, there is the possibility that I could be working next summer so I want to make the most of being home this year. We've started a "summer fun bucket list" of ideas for big and small things to do over July and August! first up will be Canada Day festivities, both in Barrhaven and downtown! take a double-decker bus; this has been on their bucket list for a couple of years now and it just hasn't happened. This is the Read more [...]

Gazillion Giant Bubbles (#giveaway)

Bubbles have been a constant summer activity since my oldest was just a baby. There is something so joyful about watching children play with bubbles, whether they are chasing and popping them or finally learning to blow them without getting a mouthful of bubble solution! Less fun is getting light-headed because the cry of "more bubbles Mama!" never ends. My daughters are now 8 and 6 and they're ready for a ton of bubbly fun this summer thanks to Gazillion Giant Bubbles by Funrise. We were sent Read more [...]

In fact, I have had full-time hours for all of April and May is looking to be the same; June is filling up quickly and then it's the summer break! While I am used to being busy, Read more [...]

Hair is cuter with a bow from Eaby Chic (#giveaway)

Believe me when I say that the hair struggle is real in this house. I'm a big fan of sending the girls to school with their hair tied back, but there are always little bits that don't want to cooperate, and between clips sliding around and headbands pinching behind ears, the end of day hair is usually a wreck. I came across Eaby Chic thanks to my friend Amy in 613 and was so happy when Jennifer sent me a variety of her sweet bows to try out! For my daughters, we received a KARMA ELLA in Read more [...]
