My Dirt

Have you ever thought about exactly what it is that makes you happy in your life? I’m not just talking about your shoes and the $10 coffees and the logo stamped on the inside of your purse. I’m talking about the kind of stuff that fills your soul and makes you smile or even laugh when you roll around in … Continue reading


Mommmmmm, I’m bored. mom, Mom, MOm, MOM! Can you play with me? Mom, lets go to the mall. Mom, can you take us for ice cream? Mom, we want to go to the movies. Hey mom, why are you locked in your room alone? Are you crying?   Yup, it’s 6 weeks into summer break and I’m looking for my … Continue reading


What do you do when a friend sends you a message and says, “hey, lets get tattooed while we’re in San Francisco for 24 hours?!” well, you do it, of course. One of my absolute favourite things to do while traveling is to get a tattoo souvenir and so in all honesty, it didn’t take much convincing to get me … Continue reading


Being the totally spontaneous traveler that I am (NOT) I got roped in to adding a 24 hour hit and run blitz of San Francisco the day before I was due to check in for BlogHer ’14 in San Jose. Fun? Yes. Crazy busy? Yes indeed! Here’s how 4 gals on the fly had a fantastic, spontaneous day of site … Continue reading

That also happens to be the moment your dad will forever describe as when mommy … Continue reading


  I am a type A.  We can all agree on that. I function best from lists and organization and the ability to see what’s coming at me. So when I was asked to change my plans to add on a spontaneous night in San Fran and NOT have a hotel booked before I got on the plane, I felt … Continue reading


I am fanatical about green smoothies. What started out as a once in a while treat has quickly become a mid-day-on-the-go meal that I crave. I’m busy, you’re busy, we’re all freaking busy and to be honest, I don’t like wasting time sitting around eating when I have to get kids to school, dinner on and blogging to do. I’ll … Continue reading


Helloooo July! It’s so nice to see you. I never truly feel like it’s summer until July comes and this year I really plan on enjoying some time in my or my friends backyard summer oasis. Yes, this is me inviting myself over to your house! I’ll bring food, I promise. I created this recipe using all my favourite pantry … Continue reading
