The Kids Go Back To School… I Go Back To Netflix #StreamTeam

It's been 10 very long weeks. Sure, we've played outside, made some memories, had some laughs... but now, I get to go back to my every day routine of housework and Netflix while they're at school.  I have a LONG list of shows I just cannot wait to watch... and rewatch. I finished Star Trek Voyager earlier this year, and have been wanting to watch Star Trek Enterprise... Full Disclosure - I didn't watch Enterprise when it aired on TV - so this … [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...]

Canada Has Fantastic Talent #StreamTeam

And it's all over Netflix!  I know we don't see that much of it anymore. Those Canadian shows we all grew up with... there were no huge budgets, but the stories were REAL.  They were a reflection of what life was like for us - going to high school, or living far north.  I don't see those same true home style shows anymore.  As we've all jumped on the reality TV bandwagon.  But <-- has some fabulous oh so Canadian shows just for … [Read more...]

Sweet & Salty Strawberry Lemonade #WhatsCooking

It's smoldering hot and we are thirsty! Some day I feel like I just can't get enough to drink! I do try to lean to water, but this girl loves flavor, and often, water just doesn't give me that mouth watering effect I'm looking for. Bland is boring! So this week I've spent some time experimenting with the NEW KraftHeinz Liquid Enhancers.  There are some fantastic Summer Refreshment recipes on the Kraft Canada website that you can check out too, … [Read more...]

The Joys of Boys… Entering the Teen Years.

So here's the thing... I'm a girl.  I know about girl issues, and girl problems. I know how to keep myself healthy and happy.  Both mentally and physically.  I can sympathize with any 'tween or teen girl, as I was one once.  Only, aside from our four legged family members, I am the only girl in the house. I have a husband and two sons, and I honestly don't know the first real thing about mens' health. I have to stop pretending though, you see … [Read more...]
