My Dirt

Phew, it’s been 30 days doing this challenge with Manulife to save and I have to admit one thing, centsability makes money. It’s funny that when I started this 30 day challenge, I set out a goal for myself to stop spending so much on crappy, expensive snacks for my kids lunches and make them snacks instead. This was overall … Continue reading


I’ve realized that I think I know everything but in reality, I know nothing. I fake it and tell my kids that “mommy knows and sees ALL!” but what I can never tell them is that in fact, they’re totally stumping me all the time. These damn mini-me’s are beating me at my own game. Here are 5 mysteries all … Continue reading


He looked me in the face and said, “don’t panic, not yet. let me do the worrying and when there’s something for you to worry about, I’ll let you know.”     That’s what my oncologist said to me at my 6 month check up.

What do you do when someone asks you to try out winter tires when there’s no snow on the ground outside? You take the cars inside.

Here I am, half way (ummm, maybe a little more than half way) thru my #CentsAbility month. It’s time for a CentsAbility update.     When I started the CentsAbility challenge 2 weeks ago, I talked about saving money by making and baking snacks for my kids lunches rather than buying expensive pre-packaged treats. I am happy to report that … Continue reading

How was school today? kid: good. mom: okay, but … Continue reading

Last year I was invited to a super cool event hosted by GM Canada to promote their Safe and Fun Hockey program. Stella, being the sporty kid she is, volunteered to be my … Continue reading


I have exactly 3 days until I need to get on a plane to Mississauga via Toronto for my second annual Blissdom Canada conference. Am I thrilled? YES. Am I packed? NO! This is so not like me. I’m a planner. I’m a list person. I’m totally not prepared. So this is what’s happening today. I’m picking and packing outfits … Continue reading


I’ve been to the west coast and Los Angeles a lot over the years and I always thought of myself as more of a beaches and sun type of person but apparently, after winning the most amazing trip to New York city courtesy of Blissdom Canada and Rent Frock Repeat, I just might be an east coast gal after all. … Continue reading


How come none of you told me that having 4 kids was gonna to be so expensive? We’re bleeding green over here and never mind Christmas people, fall is the worst!
