Hulk Cupcakes (aka Sweet Spinach Gluten Free Muffins)

I bought my new Gotham Steel muffin tin today because I’ve had this recipe in my mind for the past couple weeks but have been too busy to try it out. As you know, I’m always trying to find healthy recipes for my kids that sneak in ingredients they may not otherwise eat. A friend […]

Birthday Parties in Ottawa

Now that September has rolled around, it’s time to start planning my boys’ birthday parties.  Jax’s birthday is in January and Hudson’s is in February, they are exactly 2 years and 2 weeks apart. I absolutely love planning their parties, mostly to see the joy on their faces when the day comes – such a […]

The Aqualife Academy at Brookstreet Hotel.

I have always been a believer that swimming is an essential life skill. I had very little swimming lessons when I was a child and as such can pretty much only do the doggy paddle now LOL. As soon as Jax was born, I decided I wanted him in swim as soon as he could, […]

The BEST Black Bean Tacos

I am by no means a vegan or vegetarian, but I do LOVE food and mixing up difference ingredients in the kitchen can be so much fun, and a nice change. I have no issues throwing in a few vegetarian/vegan meals into the meal plan to keep things healthy and interesting. I stumbled across this […]

Flashback to Planning the Nurseries

One thing that I love more than anything is home décor and interior design. I loved designing our current home and our recently finished basement. When it came time to plan the nurseries I was SO excited. Waiting for the gender reveal was so painful for me because that was what triggered the green light […]

Banana Quinoa Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Toddlertime at the Ottawa Public Library

This past Tuesday, Jax, Hudson and I ventured out to the Ottawa Library for Toddler Time – excited to try it for the first time. I can’t believe it took us so long since I’ve been hearing about it since Jax was born and he’s now 3 ½ years old. I’ve been feeling a little […]

Our Little Tremblant Getaway

And we’re back! Just settling back home in Ottawa following our little getaway to Lac Superior, just outside Mont Tremblant, Quebec. As the saying goes, there’s no place like home… no matter what little piece of paradise you may be visiting… but we had such a wonderful time together on our family vacation. We stayed […]

A day trip to Prehistoric World

Just a 90 minute drive from Ottawa, Prehistoric World is a little gem in the country located near Morrisburg, Ontario. A magical land of full size dinosaur replicas throughout a beautiful 1 km wooded nature walk. A true site to be seen, these huge dinosaur replicas are all handmade by the owners who live right on site. Originally built as a hobby, […]

Our Day at Valleyview Little Animal Farm

It is a true working farm but it’s mostly known as a popular attraction for children to visit. There is no shortage of animals to view and feed at this quaint little spot. The most […]
