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

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

Posted by: on Apr 28, 2017 | No Comments
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 [...]

I've said it before, and I'll say it forever: books are sacred and special in our house. Now that she has a little brother to share her Mommy and Daddy with, story time before bed has become an even more special and important time for our daughter. It's the time that we get to cuddle in her big girl bed, snuggled under the covers and have time that's just for US. Yes, we have the classics, new and old, to choose from, but we also love to discover new and hidden gems to add to our repertoire. Little Read more [...]

What is family? That's something you have to define for yourself. In my case, family is a big, long explanation. :) When I was young, I was one of the only kids I knew with divorced parents. When I spent time at a friend's house, it usually meant there was a Mommy, a Daddy, my friend, and maybe a sibling or two. From the time I was 4 years old, I had 2 distinct families: my mom's family who all lived in South Florida, and my dad's family who all lived in Toronto. Those were the simple times Read more [...]

Let me just start by saying "THANK YOU". Thank you 2014 for all of your wonderful ups and downs, ins and outs, and a few upside downs. As you might remember, your predecessor 2013 was much less than kind to me at times. I was so glad to welcome you a year ago, 2014, and you did not disappoint. We started the year with a few bumps- lots of sickness and such, but that's to be expected with a toddler running around. Then, I returned to the stage for the first time in 10+ years. It was thrilling Read more [...]

As you may know, I recently gave birth to my second child, and I am so in love with my little family. However, I have too many friends who have not been as fortunate as I have in starting their own families. So many of them are struggling (mostly in silence) to get pregnant- whether for the first time, the second, or more. In fact, 1 in 6 Canadians struggles with infertility, yet many feel alone because their friends and family had no problems conceiving their children (or none that they know Read more [...]

In Honour of World Prematurity Awareness Month (Baby Boy Kujo Has Arrived Part 2 of 2)

November is Prematurity Awareness Month and November 17th is World Prematurity Day. Every other year of my life, this date went by unnoticed. I had no reason to know about it, nor did it directly impact me or my life. This year is different. This year, I gave birth to a preemie of my own and spent most of the first week of his life in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Compared to most of the families I met in the NICU, our experience was easy and quick. However, please understand Read more [...]

In our family we love the idea of adventure and exploring (just check out the name of the blog!). However, because of my munchkin's age and size, and due to the fact that I am pretty heftily pregnant at the moment, we are a little bit limited in our capability for exploration these days. BUT that can't stop the adventurous Kujos! NO! We like to find adventure in the every day. What does that mean? Well, it usually tends to have some reference to Dora the Explorer in completing our routine or not-so-routine Read more [...]
