Paris – Day 2

We made our way to the Louvre on the morning of our second day. We wondered if maybe it wouldn’t be that busy since it was a Thursday in October but we were wrong. It’s the Louvre! I think that place must be busy 24/7. I don’t know a more overwhelming museum than the Louvre. […]

Paris Day 1

We started in Calgary and flew to London Heathrow, then made a connection to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Everything was really uneventful with our flights, just the way we like them! I have so many memories of Heathrow, it was fun to be back again. It is always the gateway to something exciting […]

I’m 30 — My Amazing Birthday Week!

I turned 30 last Sunday and I had such an amazing birthday week!  I love birthdays, even though I’m technically old and grown up, I still think it’s wonderful to have a day of your very own to be appreciated and feel special.  It’s even better if you can stretch it out over a week of celebrating […]

We are having a 4th baby!

So this has been official for quite a while but I’ve never posted anything about it on the blog!  Poor 4th baby doesn’t even get a blog post until I’m already 18 weeks.  That’s right, I’m 18 weeks now, which means I’m like, super duper close to being half way through this pregnancy already!  This […]

Stefi & Braden’s Wedding

Eva was a flower girl and the boys were ring bearers in Stefi and Braden’s AMAZING wedding at Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff this past weekend.  The kids hated me for it but I made them let me take some pictures of them in their adorable outfits.  I know they just had the hangries, they’re […]

Books I’ve Been Reading Lately

I’ve been reading Sarah Bessey’s blog for quite a while now and am such a fan of the way she beautifully strings her words together to express the beautiful, the powerful, the messy.  But I admit, even I wasn’t sure what I would think of her book “Jesus Feminist” because lets face it, we all have an […]

Accountable Kids – Review

A couple of months ago I decided our family needed some help in the kids’ chore department.  A friend of mine had been using these really cool looking chore charts for her kids and was seeing great success so I asked her how it worked and decided I’d give it a try.  First I asked her a […]

The Morning of No iPad and Television

Alright, friends.  Story time. Last week I had a couple of separate conversations with a couple of different people (a friend and my husband) on the topic of screen time.  Now if I’m being perfectly honest, my kids are staring at screens way more than I’d like.  Like… a lot.  And yes, I’ve read the […]

Throwback Thursday Stories – #tbt

  I love Throwback Thursday, where many people go back through the archives and share an old image.  I love seeing all the pictures of babies who have grown too quickly, or my friends when they themselves were children.  I saw that Jessica Turner of The Mom Creative was hosting a link-up of Throwback Thursday […]

Dolladrama

A couple weeks ago I had to run into Dollarama to buy some special dishes for a yummy breakfast I was planning to soon make myself.  I was walking quickly through the aisles to get what I needed and I could hear a mom hollering at her kids from somewhere out of sight.  I felt a […]
