Back-To-School with Walmart

  Summer is nearly over and our minds (including our exhausted bodies) are excited for the school year ahead.  GRADE ONE is a pretty big deal over here; Sofia has mentally convinced herself she is now in a real grade. Unlike the 2 years of pre-school and 1 year of kindergarten, Grade One is different, IT’S A NUMBER which means it’s the real deal now, she’s in SCHOOL! Oh how I love 6-year-old reasoning!   Walmart Canada Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest Similar to what we did last year, we partnered with Walmart on the Back-to-School Apparel Solutions program, and headed straight to where we knew the deals were and our money could be stretched; WALMART! Sofia was given  a $100 […]

Our Annual Outdoor Movie Night {Disaster Strikes}

((check out the full vlog at the link below)) Our annual Summer Outdoor Movie Night has come and gone, and of all things that I forget, and am forced on on THE DAY to hunt down… GOODNESS ME! Let’s just say I had a lot on my plate, deal?!  The guest count was HIGH and so were the expectations, the ones I had put out for myself of course. I for some ludacrious reason think each year should top the last, because I like to torture myself that’s why. I made sure to keep my promise to Sofia and play the Trolls movie, but not to Sammy […]

Kids Summer Bucket List {VLOG}

HAVE YOU DONE IT? Have you sat down with your littles and created a Summer Bucket List? Not only was it fun and gave me an excuse to print out these adorable FREE Printables, but it narrowed down the crazy amount of things Sofia said she wanted to do over her Summer Break. The first 10 things she belted out I knew were MOST IMPORTANT to her, like her first sleepover and a visit to the Seattle Zoo. The rest were just filler and if we got to them great, if not, no little people would lose sleep over it.    We tackled one of her requests last week […]

Car Shopping; can something be hated that much?

I would rather eat sushi than go through the process of buying a new car! (for anyone that knows me, knows that right there, that’s a pretty bold statement) I DETEST CAR SHOPPING The whole process plays with me; my stress levels, my emotions, my decision making skills, they all get tested to the utmost and I can’t stand it. Not sure if you heard, but we’re looking to buy a new vehicle. Oh! but not just any old vehicle, OH NO! a planning on keeping it for 10+ years so it better be amazing family vehicle. You know the type right? YOU GUYS! The pressure is killing […]

3 steps for an Ant-less BBQ Season

  HEY YOU GUYS! How hot is it where you are? I cannot believe it’s only the first few days of Summer and here in Vancouver we’ve hit 34 °C, that’s 93 °F, isn’t that NUTS?! Steaks marinating, veggies skewered, watermelon cut, sun shining, music blaring… BBQ season is now in full swing and although I’d like to say we cook on the grill just for fun, sometimes it’s a survival skill (hashtag turn on the oven and get a punch in the throat). I am by no means complaining… BUT with this warm weather comes cooking outside, and with cooking outside brings uninvited guests! Yes some ants do […]

Shopping with a baby {vlog}

I DOUBT anyone here thinks it’s a grand idea to shop with a baby in tow, but sometimes it’s not an option. Sometimes this is what needs to be done so you don’t have a baby in her BIRTHDAY SUIT at all times.  Being between sizes is ROUGH, when 3 to 6 months is too small and 6 to 9 months is just too big, the struggle is real!

Best Father’s Day Gifts {are free}

  It’s going to take you a little more time than say building him a new BBQ or cleaning up after an afternoon of daddy DIY’s but if you ask Sammy, he will tell you this is by far his most cherished Father’s Day Gifts he’s ever recieved.  I had this wild plan in my head to make Sammy a video with Sofia for Father’s Day, but I had to wait for the perfect moment in time. That moment that she started to talk, make decisions of her own (not necessarily good ones) and had her own opinions (oh… the opinions!). Sofia was 3 and it was only […]

We caught a HUGE tadpole {vlog}

We did it, WE VLOGGED AGAIN! After what feels like a GIGANTIC break since our last vlog (really only a week) I’m feeling good about this vlog. We got hit pretty hard with a virus since getting back from holidays and really have been just struggling to get through life without tears. BUT that’s over, back to life again… We headed out to catch Tadpoles, and learnt a very good lesson which kept us out of jail. Thank you PetSmart lady for strongly advising us not to take home said Tadpole. Watch here>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn39uULO9dI&t=1s *** Are you following us on social media?
