Are Vegetarian Chicken Eggs Healthier?

Are Vegetarian Chicken Eggs Healthier?

Are vegetarian-fed chickens’ eggs healthier, or is this another marketing ploy by A&W? I haven’t eaten at A&W restaurants since their “Better Beef ” campaign and I was shocked to see their new campaign that started just a couple of weeks ago. They now have an “Egg Guarantee” that assures consumers their eggs are: “…farmed right here […]

Why Kids Should NOT Drive ATVs

Why Kids Should NOT Drive ATVs

I might not be a “cool” farm mom by already deciding to not allow my kids drive all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) until they have their driver’s licenses at 16 or older, but this is something I will not budge on. I have a background as a pediatric operating room nurse and I’ve been called into the OR […]

Catch the Moment Week 38

Catch the Moment Week 38

This is a week I kinda half wanna forget. But…here we go. We start off this week with day 1 of potty training. It didn’t end up like we’d hoped, but what do ya do? If anything, I loved spending some more one-on-one time with my Ethan. Aren’t toddlers in underwear cute? Pushing fluids…pushing fluids… […]

The Potty Training That Wasn’t

Potty Training Ethan

I had enough of diapers and I didn’t want to waste any more money on them since Ethan outgrew my stash of cloth diapers and I also didn’t want to invest any more money on buying more cloth. He just turned 23 months old and by the books he met all the requirements developmentally and physically […]

Our Trip to The Calgary Zoo

Calgary Zoo

After a delay on our first planned trip this summer to the Calgary Zoo as part of our Momblr tour, we made it! We went after the snow that fell the week before had all melted, we went on a Monday morning when the sun was out, it was gorgeous and it felt like we were […]

Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I am really not much of a sandwich person, but I will never turn down the “salad” sandwiches. I was looking through many different chicken salad sandwiches recipes and picked a bit of this and a bit of that and came up with this delicious chicken salad sandwich recipe. It’s simple, it’s crunchy with the […]

Catch the Moment Week 37

Catch the Moment Week 37

Let’s call this week “attack of the grainy photos”! Sad thing is, I love all these photos, and I guess you could say the grain (lack of clarity) adds a certain charm, but it’s just me with a combination of poor lighting, poor manual settings and not bringing my Speedlite traveling (because, really that’s not […]

Ethan is 23 Months Old!

23 Months Blog

Last update before he’s two! He has changed SO much since last month! Clothes He’s had a huge growth spurt I weighed him at the end of August and he was just shy of 30 lbs and I know he’s gained since then! Wears almost all 3T shirts and jammies now, except one-piece Carter’s fleece […]

Outside-Stuffed Chicken

IMG_2053

I don’t cook whole chicken breasts often because I find them to be very hard to cook. They are big, easy to under cook and yet easy to over cook…which is why I usually cut them up to cook them in wraps or I boil them and shred them for my quesadillas. Anyway, I came across […]

Catch the Moment Week 36

Catch the Moment Week 36

Unfortunately when the weather is miserable during harvest, I typically end up being a bit happy on the inside because it allows me to be with my husband as a family, spend some alone time with him catching up on shows, or heading off to Target by myself. Jay actually sent me there…all his idea! […]
