Sneaking in Time for Me

Posted by: on Aug 16, 2017 | No Comments
Life... am I right?! Things have been rough with some serious ups and downs this year. The highs are high and the lows have been lower than any I've known in my life. In between it all, regular every day life has been pulling me in every direction possible, and it's been hard to make time for ME. That also means that some things have fallen by the wayside- like my blog. It's been silent here recently. I know that. You know that. Unfortunately, with so much happening and so much to keep up with, Read more [...]

Any Time is Family Time with Netflix (and a giveaway!)

  "My kids will never have screen time." Be honest- before we became parents, we told ourself a lot of things. The reality is that life with kids isn't always easy or perfect. It's not as simple as we once imagined. Still- we'd never trade it for anything. The key is finding what works for our own families. As long as everyone is healthy, happy and (relatively) well-adjusted, then who cares about those hard-and-fast rules we once imagined would be part of our lives?  Screen time is part of Read more [...]
A Rockin’ Piece of Rock ‘N’ Roll History: Million Dollar Quartet

A Rockin’ Piece of Rock ‘N’ Roll History: Million Dollar Quartet

This past Wednesday night, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the opening night of Million Dollar Quartet  at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY! This Tony Award-Winning musical is inspired by the incredible true events of December 4, 1956, when Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll", brought together 4 music giants (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley) for one of the greatest impromptu recording sessions of all time. I Read more [...]

If you haven't yet checked out Julie's Greenroom on Netflix, RUN, don't walk and turn it on NOW. If there ever was a female role model who is strong, poised, talented, intelligent, eloquent and can own the attention of any room she's in (even if she's not actually physically in it), that woman is Julie Andrews! Julie's Greenroom is a show about theatre and creativity and freedom of expression. It seeks to teach kids that the theatre "does not discriminate" and offers something for every person: Read more [...]

It's been mighty quiet around these parts lately despite my better intentions. MOST of that has to do with the fact that I've been working hard preparing for a very important event for the last several months. Aside from full-time work and Mommying, I have also been co-chairing the 8th annual musical fundraiser to support The Segal Centre for the Performing Arts, here, in Montreal. This Sunday, April 2nd, 30+ members of the community, lead by an incredible professional artistic team, will be putting Read more [...]

I Cheated…

Posted by: on Mar 7, 2017 | No Comments
Here it is... my confession... I cheated. I love my husband dearly, but I just COULD NOT resist... Especially since he started it with his own cheating! #SorryNotSorry It turns out, we're in good company, though. It seems that 46% of global Netflix viewers are cheating RIGHT NOW... with their favourite Netflix shows. It also turns out that we Canadians are not quite as polite as we like to think, with over 1/3 (37% to be exact) of couples streaming behind each other's backs. In fact, cheating Read more [...]
