Food for Friday – Asparagus with Lemon and Mint


March is a funny month, isn't it? In like a lion out like a lamb, isn't that what they say? It's also the month that brings Spring. And my need for Spring to come sooner rather than later really inspired me to focus on the "Spring" part of the month when I was planning posts. That's what brought up all these posts about veggies lately. Just as March is in like a lion - we

Teaching Children about Money #MoneyWithLeo


It was a lazy Sunday morning at our house and the consequence of the previous nights shenanigans meant that the television was (unfortunately) off. Sunday morning spent with Netflix is how we usually manage to score an hour or two of quiet time on the weekend. But when my preschooler is making bad choices or demonstrating some undesirable language, it's often the first thing

Having a Blast with the #LEGODUPLO 30 Days of Play Challenge


Well we are over half way through the LEGO® DUPLO® 30 Days of Play Challenge and I can’t believe how much fun we have been having.  As a working mom the time I get to spend with Monkey in the evenings is precious.  I want to make the most of the few hours we do get to spend together, but coming up with creative ways for us to play together is sometimes tough for me.  The 30

Zin Frames Review – Add a little colour to you life!


Review provided by Food For Friday Blogger, Rebecca Zin Frames is company, that I'm proud to say is Canadian, and they asked us to take a look at their customized picture frames. Can I say that I jumped at the chance? I sure did! You see, I have two girls who are currently sleeping and hanging out in a bedroom that even on the best days could be described as 'unfinished'.

Scars of being a #Preemie Mom


With Monkey getting closer to 2 years old, more and more people have started to ask when JAM and I will be having a second baby.  I brush off their comments with a chuckle and a “Not right now” or “You never know” but underneath that cover is the truth that I am scared.  As the mom of a preemie I never want to have to go through that experience again.  Overall Monkey's course

So, here we are, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day – Kale Chips: not really Irish food but certainly green. I first read about kale chips on the Girls Gone Child blog. Her Mom writes food
