All You Need is Love… And Netflix

August has me sighin’ like, whoa. This summer has been super dee duper! Okay, my apologies, by child is watching Barney and that was uncalled for. I begged her to change it but she’s mesmerized now and there’s no turning back. I’ve lost her to the purple side. I’m not ready for summer to be…

The Sun will Rise Without my Salute

Awhile ago I joined the gym.  Then, due to high momentum, motivation, and the high possibility of being drunk I went to a yoga class with a friend at her gym.  My friend, Jordan, is kick ass when it comes to working out.  She was my inspiration for starting.  And when I walked into the gym…

Canada Day with Netflix and Family

Although Canada Day was July 1st and we celebrated our country’s 149th birthday on that day that doesn’t mean the celebration ended there! We are proud Canadian’s all month and all year-long! Our family celebrated this year with our whole family getting together for a BBQ at my aunt’s house. We swam, ate, and had…

Starting Summer off with Netflix

Summer has officially begun. I wrapped up my first week of holidays yesterday and headed back to work today and am starting the count down for my next week in August. We are cramming as much fun as possible into 8 weeks of school vacation, sun, and lazy days. Of course, summer holidays would not…

The Asshole Escaped Again and I’m Pretty Sure I’m Deaf

I bet you can’t even imagine what I’m up to. The thrilling life I’m living. Waking up at 6am, showering, getting ready for work, downing a cup of coffee and singing in my loveliest voice for my child to wake up and join me. She likes that. Why do I even shower? I swear I…

Turning Down Food for the Gym… Am I Drunk?

So I went to the gym today. I pumped myself up (no pun intended… or was it?) all weekend and set a goal for myself to start. And you know what? I stuck to it. I even turned down a lunch invitation in order to fulfill my goal. And I love lunch. I live for…

At Home with House Box

Do you ever think to yourself, “gee, I would really like to try that product but I don’t want to buy the full size just in case I don’t like it.” Or, “hmm, I wonder how that works, smells, cleans, tastes, etc” I do, all the time, but because I have sworn on our hamster’s…
