Full Mobile Coverage While Living In The ‘Burbs’ -TELUS Rocks! {Giveaway}

I was first introduced to TELUS mobile when I was a teenager, I remember buying into the brand because of its fresh appearance, snazzy ads and really good prices. Who would have known that after years of service with other mobile networks I would become a TELUS customer once again – just under different terms. Now somewhat grown-up I stand on the other side of the fence when I say that the most important thing to me when it comes to cell phone usage is the ability to stay connected….

Summer Mom Essential- The Mom-o-kini

Enter the monokini, or as I…

How can a girl, let alone a busy mama of 2 hate these wonderfully spacious pants anyhow? Culottes by definition are women’s knee-length trousers, cut with very full legs to resemble a skirt – amazing right? No more heat induced sticky legs, fashionably chic and of course very loose fitting for that comfortable feel while running errands with the little ones. In theory these are a god-send for mothers everywhere, but in reality for short…

Edible Sand Dessert Your Kids (And You) Will Love!

Let’s face it, sometimes dessert is necessary…ok for some of us it is always necessary! lol Every year, in the summer we have made a traditional dessert in our home called ‘edible sand.’ Basically it consists of cookie crumbs and Philadelphia cream cheese and usually eaten in a plastic bucket, but for the purposes of this post I we did not have many cookie options nor clean new buckets to eat from so we substituted with a plain bowl and Dad’s Original Oatmeal cookies.
