Family couch cuddles, car-ride sing-alongs and everything in between. Our best memories as a family of four are being made when we're just together, enjoying and living in the moment. It beats planned excursions, exciting days out and parties. My favourite moments with my husband and little ones are the ones that are most unexpected (and tend to leave us giggling or belly laughing). Music is such an important part of the memories we're making and of the memories I have of my family from when I was Read more [...]

Canada might be long gone, but the Canadian content invasion on Netflix Canada lives on!
I always love a good game of "Betcha didn't know they were Canadian"! Don't you?! Here are some of the new discoveries I've made lately about some of our homegrown talent:
How did I not know that Pacey/Peter Bishop was a fellow Canuck?! Just when I didn't think I could love him anymore!
Now on Netflix: catch him in One Week. I had never heard of this title before, but after reading Read more [...]
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 [...]
