October 9th – 15th is Fire Prevention Week

Disclosure: We have partnered with Duracell to bring you the following message... As a little girl I loved going to school. But the one week that was truly exciting was Fire Prevention Week.  Back in those days rules and regulations were a bit more lax, and our small school got to do something that many others never did... We got to go for a ride on the fire trucks... We were on them, in them, it was so much fun.  Memories I'll never ever … [Read more...]

Take Advantage of the Helpers – Classico’s New Bolognese Sauce #WhatsCooking

Busy. We thrive on it don't we? We work hard, leave little time for play, and have ourselves scheduled to the max.  This whole business of adulting is hard, especially when we are resonsible for keeping our kids healthy and happy too. It didn't take me long in my role of chief mom to learn that I needed help.  And  that I needed to take advantage of the helper products that are out there. For years, a favorite helper of mine was Classico … [Read more...]

Love ❤ autumn A photo posted by Jen Banks (@abusymommy) on Oct 15, 2015 at 6:51am PDT It happened overnight. All of a sudden there was a chill in the air.  Leaves, golden and amber following an unseen path along the ground.  Autumn has arrived. Along with the breeze and the chill comes the true harvest veggies.  The hearty root vegetables that will sustain us through the long, cold winter.  At least, that's what they're … [Read more...]

Get Your Boston Pizza Kids Card Today!

I don’t cook on Mondays.  In my home we call it, no cook Monday!  Original, I know. But there is a reason behind it.  You see, I work the breakfast shift on Mondays, which means, I’m out the door before the coffee has been brewed or the kids have begun to stir. I’m at work before the sun begins to shine. On Mondays we order out for our dinner. But just because we’re splurging on take out, it doesn’t mean we’re going to break the bank. I am … [Read more...]

The Back To School Blues

Trust me, it's not about the 6 hours of free time I'll magically get back that has me singing the back-to-school blues.  Not even close.  Instead, it's the dent on my bank account.  School fees, new clothes, new gear all lumped into one single month... and enough to deck out two stylish boys. The game just got even pricier now that my eleven year old now wears mens' clothes.  You read that right, my son and my hubby can share shirts now. I'm not … [Read more...]
