Catch the Moment – Week 34

Catch the Moment Week 34

I feel like this was a lazy week of pictures. Definitely didn’t go above and beyond to catch anything special…just day to day life, which is just fine by me. Lazy, lazy boy on the couch. Looking at the week I got lots of pictures of the kids. If every day could be jammie day, [...]

How Much Glyphosate is Sprayed on Our Crops?

How Much Glyphosate Do We Spray On Our Crops

Alternate Title: Actually, No. We Don’t “Douse” Our Crops With Glyphosate. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard that farmers spray “poison” on their crops by “dousing” or “soaking” glyphosate all over them. For those who don’t know, glyphosate is a common, broad-spectrum herbicide that a lot of farmers choose to use. It was [...]

Raspberries and Cream Cookies

Raspberries and Cream Cookies

I have made these delicious raspberries and cream cookies the last 3 summers and I decided they are more than blog-worthy. At the farm, my mother-in-law has an amazing raspberry patch that gives us plenty of berries to bake with, and these and the raspberry citrus bars are always on my list! You will need: [...]

First Day of School Free Printables

Catch the Moment – Week 33

Catch the Moment Week 33

It’s starting to feel like fall around here and this week began with rain and then we got really humid and hot and it is still raining off and on, but now it’s quite cool and overcast. The lashes, his tiny scar from his stitches, the crispness of a black & white photo and his [...]

Tropical Zucchini Muffins

Tropical Zucchini Muffins

It’s zucchini season and it’s time to bake, especially for those of us who don’t like to eat plain zucchini (like me). Zucchini makes things super moist and delicious and has no flavour whatsoever, to me anyway. These muffins are always on my must-bake list as they are moist, light and sweet and have coconut [...]

1) My question to you is regarding blogging. How did you end up becoming a brand ambassador? And do you feel like that has helped build your audience? Or do you feel your audience has come from your work in social media? You’ve built an incredible audience that it quite frankly amazes me! - Jenny Firstly, [...]

Eau Claire & Prince’s Island Park Calgary

Eau Claire and Princes Island Park

I’ll be honest with you: when I was told that for the second part of our Momblr trip that we would be going downtown to Calgary’s Eau Claire and Prince’s Island Parks…I was dreading it. Taking two young children ages 4½ and 20 months to the downtown core of a major city on a Saturday [...]

Mark & Gisella’s Pinterest Inspired Wedding

Pinterest Inspired Wedding

I often wonder what my 2007 wedding would have been like if Pinterest had been around? It would have been nice to have everything visually organized and to have inspiration from other weddings to look at, but we made it through! I was at a wedding last weekend and the bride had a completely Pinterest [...]

I haven’t said this for awhile, so I’m allowed to: this month FLEW by! Probably because it’s summer and I feel like it’s the busiest we’ve ever been in our life! Pardon the sub-par picture, Ethan’s black out blind will not open, I had no natural light…as much as I love my Tamron lens it’s [...]
