Bra Care – Getting The Most Support Where You Need It The Most

Lets talk bras shall we! I don’t know about you but they drive me insane. So many cute styles, prints and colours but because I am rather chesty I never find anything that actually works for longer then a couple hours. Wearing your bra more then two times between washings can actually damage it. The elastic in each bra needs time to “recover” after each wear. This is wear I struggle as I honestly don’t own many bras. A recommendation is to have at least 3 bras. This  ...

Healthy Snacks for Game Day

Warmer weather is finally making its appearance where I am from. This means all the fun Summer sports are starting. I love driving by the parks and seeing the kids playing. Some of the best life lessons I learned were on a sports field. While sports are not for everyone it is definitely something I recommend trying. This year both my boys are playing baseball. I grew up on a diamond and am so excited to share this with my boys. But with game time, comes snack time. With two boys I needed  ...

More Than Just A Picture

The other day we were blessed to be able to attend a Brampton Beast hockey game. The boys were super excited as it was playoff time, but when they realized it was front row the excitement radiated off of them. This is the closest the boys will get to an NHL game right now as the pricing is a little out of my budget. But they don’t mind, to them, these guys are just as famous and as good. My oldest spent the time between periods waiting to fist bump the players when they came off the  ...

Celebrate National Pet Owners Day! #ChurchandDwight

It’s hard to deny the love a pet owner has for their furry companion. From an endless supply of treats to belly rubs and a basket full of toys, our “fur babies” are spoiled. But it’s not always a walk in the park – there’s the shedding, the “picking up” and the trips to the vet. That’s why, it’s time to celebrate National Pet Owner’s Day – a day that honours all of the loving and dedicated pet parents out there. I have always been a house full of pets growing up and still am. We have a  ...

Spring Cleaning Can Be Easy #CloroxMeansClean

With the nicer weather finally upon us the last thing I want to do is be stuck in doors cleaning. I love the look and feel of a clean house, but I hate the work that is involved in doing it. I love finding tips and tricks that help make it easier so I can spend more time outside with my boys and less scrubbing toilets. Make a List I find when I make a cleaning checklist it goes over a lot easier. Having set goals in front of me keeps me on task. I also love the feel of checking things off  ...

I So Badly Wanted To Quit Running

Everything in me yesterday decided I was not running. The alarm went off 5 times before I dragged my ass out of bed. I then slowly got everything else ready for the day hoping I had no time to get my running stuff ready, but I had the time. Then the whole drive in I talked myself out of it, I mean I hardly slept last night, I had a headache and I forgot my oatmeal. Then I got to work and changed into my running gear. Stood inside for a bit, then walked out to the track. Each step I felt  ...

Caution, Big Girl Running!

2 years ago I decided to start running. I shocked myself when I strapped up and took off for my first run. But slowly after each day that passed I learned I loved the time I spent out. I mean there were no kids calling me, dishes that needs to be washed it was just me and the road. Sadly after my first 5K I took a “break” and never returned. Well, until yesterday of course! I decided enough was enough. Running was something I loved and the excuses I had been making were not  ...
