Julie’s Greenroom is a TREASURE

Posted by: on Apr 11, 2017 | No Comments
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 [...]
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 [...]

Happy 2017 lovely readers! I know I've been silent for far too long, but believe me when I say it was with good reason! VERY good reason! Hubby and I just enjoyed our very first vacation together without kids, celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary! We enjoyed a FULL week away- in New Orleans and on a cruise to the Yucatan in Mexico. I was bursting to share with everyone, but I knew I had to wait until our return to do so. As a blogger, I share a lot of my personal life with the world. Read more [...]

First it was Dora... Then came Paw Patrol. NOW there is only Mia and Me. What is Mia and Me? Funny you should ask. Mia and Me is the ONLY show either of my children want to watch these days on Netflix. Why? I honestly could not tell you. One day, my daughter was at a playdate with my niece, and they watched this show together, and that was the end of any and all alternatives to Mia and Me. It's half live-action, half animated, and it's honestly not all bad. I'm sure I would Read more [...]

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 [...]
