It has almost been 11 months since the birth of my daughter, Everly. Can you believe it?!? Neither  can I. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing for her impending arrival.

Eating properly in the morning is so essential to starting the day off right and helps curb those dreaded 3pm snack-attacks. One of my favourite foods to eat in the morning is cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is packed with protein and calcium. In fact… Did you know that 1/2 cup of Nordica Cottage Cheese offers 15 […]

With the hustle and bustle of the busy holiday season behind us, it’s time to finally tackle those long-overdue to-dos and put those goal setting resolutions into action. Right? Right! That’s easy for some to say. New Year’s resolutions tend to be all to easy to make, but hard to maintain. Personally, I am not one to set […]

December has always been known as the month of travel for my family. We live in a small town about 1 to 2 hours east of our parents, so when it comes to the holidays we tend to take turns traveling to visit one another each year. Usually we will attend two Christmases’ in the […]

Rewind to the beginning of December. I see an icon pop up. It’s a Facebook notification. The outline for the month of December has just been posted to the Gay Lea Mom Ambassadors group.  Great, I think to myself. Keen to get a head start on this month’s post, I read over the outline. The […]

If there is one thing that you have learned about me over the years, it is that you know I absolutely love cheese. I love to cook with cheese. I love to pair wine with cheese, and apple pie too. Cheese to me is the bees knees. One of my all-time favourite comfort foods. A […]

With that in mind, for the second year, Duracell has partnered with Hasbro […]
