Easter Weekend Shenanigans

Happy Easter Monday friends! How was your Easter weekend? Ours was pretty relaxed, no huge plans, no travelling...it was pretty nice. Hockey is officially over for us, save for a wind up this week, so it was nice not having to juggle kids and rinks and equipment. Although there goes my weekend morning coffee dates! This was probably the craziest thing that went on this weekend.... The hockey hair got the chop! At the beginning of the year he told us he wanted hockey hair, which he called a "bullet". Once we figured out he actually meant MULLET, we fi[...]


What’s Up at Our Place

Hey guys! Popping in today to catch ya'll up on what's been happening around our household lately! With both boys playing hockey we average 2-3 practices per week & 3-4 games per weekend. We essentially live at the rink over the weekend and I personally run off a whole lotta caffeine just to make it through to supper time! Carter's team (go Icemen!) had a pretty dismal start to their season and raked up a few losses, but the past couple of weeks they've done a complete 180 and it's like watching a different team out there. Saturday they lost by one goal to[...]

*This post contains affiliate links. You can find my full disclosure HERE* This is the story of gold dots application and an aspiring designer. An aspiring 2 year old designer that is. I've been involved in a love affair with gold decor (hence the gold dots) for close to 2 years now & I don't see it ending anytime soon. It's been finding its way into each room around the house so it should be no surprise that I was able to incorporate some of that glitzy gold into Ellie's room makeover. I was working with a blank wall and wanted to stray away from h[...]


Here fishy fishy…

Ahhhh Friday. There's no better word that starts with an F & if you know me, you know that's only half true ha!  We spent the majority of the week out at our family cabin, fishing, relaxing & enjoying friends and family. The boys managed to convince Eric to fillet up some of the fish we caught & we cooked it up last night. It was pretty good for a dirty old jack fish! My aunt is visiting from Vancouver, so it was nice that she could join in our Canada Day fun! Here's a photo recap of our last few days. Have a great weekend!    &n[...]


A Skylander & Minecraft Birthday

Warning: This is a very birthday related and photo heavy post! This past weekend we celebrated Carter 9th birthday. 9! I still can't believe it. Over the years he's a had a few interests that he's been pretty focused on and those interests have carried through to his birthday "theme" of sorts. I never thought I'd be a birthday theme mom, but here I am - guilty as charged! It all started with Skylanders....and the fact that I was pregnant with Ellie. I was totally feeling Susie Homemaker-ish and Supermom-like and decided that the kid needed a styled table and[...]
