  "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 [...]
I Cheated…

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 [...]

I have yet to write a full recap of our incredible adults-only vacation from this holiday season, but before I share that, here is a little introduction to how it began. Picture this: It's Thursday evening, December 22nd. You've finally completed the packing process for a long trip: organizing, planning, washing, folding, sorting, packing for 1 dog to go the sitter, 1 cat to go to a friend, 2 kids to spend a week with their grandparents and 2 adults to be out of the country for a week. The Read more [...]

I've been having a rough go lately. I'm sure you can tell from my silence on here (the blog) and most of my social media channels. It's been a tough few months for me, personally (to say the least), and I just haven't been able to find the words to share what I want to share with everyone. That said-- I am really excited to have something I've been looking forward to for a while finally arrive to offer me some respite from the stress: a brand new Netflix original that looks absolutely incredible Read more [...]

All You Need is Love – Win 3 Months of Netflix!

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: Joshua Jackson:  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 Heart Lily Tomlin & Netflix Canada

Posted by: on May 31, 2016 | No Comments
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 [...]
