I'm pretty sure I've watched the trailer for Bad Moms about 100 times since it was released a few months ago. Not only are 2 of my girl crushes in it (hello Kristen and Christina, I'm looking at you!), but it also looks completely relatable and ridiculously hilarious! I have been counting down the days until I get to see this movie, and now the premiere is less than a week away!
A woman with a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, overachieving kids, beautiful home, stunning looks Read more [...]

I know I haven't written much in a while. The month of June was a rough one on my end. While it was full of fun and travel, it was also full of sick kids, a family funeral and a lot of disappointing and discouraging news. For whatever reason the universe seemed to keep handing me all of these incredible and dream-fulfilling opportunities only to snatch them from my grasp once my hopes were attached. All of that, on top of the daily headlines on the scary state of world, led me to a place where I Read more [...]
Soooooo... I LOVE Lily Tomlin. Always have, always will. I fell in love with her appearances on Sesame Street way back in the day, and now I am absolutely addicted to her every move on Grace and Frankie. She's fabulous, frank, funny, feministic and absolutely freaking talented! She has won numerous awards (2 Tonys, 2 Peabodys, 6 Emmys, a Grammy, the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards, as well as the Mark Twain Prize for American humor) and has been nominated for COUNTLESS others.
That Read more [...]
It's been a while since I've done a book review on the blog, but that's mostly because I haven't read anything that I felt strongly enough about to share (good or bad) in a long time. That doesn't mean that I'm not still the same bookworm I always have been! Some things just don't change.
Me Before You from Jojo Moyes is one of those books I've had on my list since it came out. For some reason, I've read several of her other books but not this one as yet. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law LOVED Read more [...]
The last week of April was a BIG week in our house.
My son, just shy of being 19 months old, finally got up on his two feet and walked. An early crawler, like his sister, he's been on the move since he was 7 months old. Also like his sister, he started pulling up to standing long before his first birthday but decided that walking just wasn't for him. We've been trying to encourage him to stand and walk- using a walker or holding our hands. We did everything we could think of to get him to just Read more [...]
Anyone who knows me or follows me on social media knows how important my "me" time has become to me. For about 10 months now, that "me" time has been about making time for my daily workouts and time to take care of me... aka filling my own cup before filling others'. Taking the time in my daily routine to make ME a priority has changed my life... from the inside out. I have more energy, I'm happier, I'm healthier, I'm stronger, and my whole family is benefitting from it.
However, I do still appreciate Read more [...]
Those of you who follow my social media accounts know that last month Hubby and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit lovely Kittery, Maine. It was a a welcome reprieve from the stress of our Election Campaign, tax season, and the interminable winter here, in Montreal. In fact, it was our first time getting away as a couple SINCE OUR HONEYMOON 5 years ago! That's right- we had not been away for even a night, just the two of us, in 5 years! I suppose that's what happens when you have babies and Read more [...]
