Incredible Christmas Light Display {VLOG}

We may have JUST made it before the lights flipped on for the first time… But without all the added anxiety and stress it wouldn’t be the same. YOU GUYS! Is it just me or are you always rushing to things, like I mean ALWAYS?! It was no different checking out the Lights at Lafarge Lake for their BIG official lighting event. We rushed to get there. Rushed to find parking. Rushed to pay for parking. Rushed to connect with our family meeting us there. and then we sat. We waited. and waited some more. and then a little more.  BAM the lights flew on and it […]

Apparently it’s Salmon Spawning Season {VLOG}

DID YOU KNOW? It’s Salmon Spawning Season here in Vancouver? No?! Neither did we…  We stumbled across it last week and decided to venture out and find a spot that would get us up close and personal with some spawning salmon. I was so excited to show the girls the beauty of Mother nature. Although our first location was a BUST, we eventually found them and goodness me, what a sight!     CHECK IT OUT! CLICK HERE   *** Are you following us on social media?

Visit to Taves Family Farm {vlog}

We went to Taves Family Farm this past weekend and OH WHAT FUN we had! Although crazy busy we made the most of our time there. Call me crazy but I’m not much for waiting in line for 20 minutes to use the restroom, doesn’t go over well with little people. We will have to head back on a weekday when it’s less Disneyland in August and more like Vancouver in November.   Check it out! CLICK HERE   *** Are you following us on social media?

Rain Storms & Fall Fairs {VLOG}

Talk about total Vancouver weather! We went to Art Knapps Fall Fair last weekend and a storm rolled in just as we were about to leave. The drive home was a crazy one, and as you can see Sammy was terrified behind the wheel 😉    Check it out here>> https://youtu.be/E5JzNY6Rzoc   *** Are you following us on social media?

LIFE: Good ‘Ol Canadian Baseball Game

…take me out to the ball game! AND BUY ME POPCORN! Went to a Vancouver Canadians game last week, a first for Sofia, but most importantly we went as one big happy family (the brady bunch ‘aint got nothing on this crew). We got seats that were in the shade, irritated our neighbors with selfie stick group shots, and when things got slow we played with auntie Lindsay’s snapchat and made ourselves into Sia (as you do). The afternoon was perfect really, we cheered loud and boo’ed hard, ate hot dogs and double dipped our french fries. We left with dirt on our shorts (thanks to running the […]

FAMILY: Destination Kidtropolis

I honestly can’t even begin to tell you just how amazing this place is, Kidtropolis, and this is why I knew I would have to take a ton of pictures to get the point across. Not only a kids dream but any parent who encourages imagination play and those parents who want to keep their kids little for as long as possible.  Ever since hearing about Kidtropolis hitting Richmond I knew it would a) be a place we would frequent and b) a reason I would nail down the perfect times to drive while dealing with rush-hour. This place is packed with hours and hours and hours of fun […]

FAMILY: Geocaching

This weekend we tried something new and totally foreign to us, geocaching. By no means did we expect to be good at it right away, I was actually doing my best to set us all up for not finding a thing our first time acting as modern-day pirates searching for treasure. We downloaded the geocaching.com app onto our phones as it was recommended to us by Louise at Talk Nerdy to Me (a total pro geocache’er) and headed on our way out. We saw a few ones in close proximity to one another at Rocky Point in Port Moody, so off we set.  We got our first real […]

FEATURE: The Avion Rockstar Life

Don’t get stuck looking in from the outside, you too can be treated like a Rockstar with Avion! For the past 3 years we’ve enjoyed the luxury of shopping like a Rockstar over the Christmas Holidays. HA! This is not a joke, the only difference between how I shop and Justin Bieber is that he has to stop for autographs (sucker!). When you’re an Avion card holder you get the luxury of many things, but one that I thoroughly enjoy each year, and if you ask Sammy maybe a little too much, is the Avion Holiday Boutique.  Setup in Metropolis at Metrotown, the Avion Holiday Boutique offers […]

EVENTS: Christmas Farmers Market {coquitlam}

I love to shop, this is no surprise here, and when I can manage to combine both shopping and supporting local businesses the excitement level goes almost near embarrassing. There is something that feels so good about knowing where your money is going after you’ve made the purchase. Better yet, handing your money to the person who actually put the time and love into making each item. I love it! I love nothing more! This is why Coquitlam’s Christmas Farmers Market means so much, I have a chance to not only check items off my list of gifts to buy, but also getting those feel good feelings from supporting local businesses. […]

FASHION: Black Friday Shopping Haul

As promised, I wanted to share with you all the amazing deals I got this past Friday at Guildford Town Centre. Here is why I find it so great, HELLO! CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DEALS. I mean I used to joke around about how genius it would be if a family could pretend Christmas was the day after boxing day, hitting the stores on the wild but oh-so-worth-it day of crazy shopping deals and get everyone’s gifts all in one day.  Did someone say $100 gift card giveaway? I would keep scrolling if I were you! This right here is why I love Black Friday so much, and my love for Guildford […]
