Microwave Popcorn Makeover

I am always on the look out for healthy snack ideas for me and my family. Popcorn is one of my favorite ‘sittin’ in front of the tv’ snacks in the evening when the kids are in bed and of course on family movie night. I’ve been buying the bagged microwave popcorn for-ever and in recent months I have heard … Continue reading


WARNING: For those of you who know me personally please know that we have decided NOT to tell to our 4 children about my experience with cancer. Please keep this in mind when they are present. Part 1 September 14, 2012 marks the 1 year anniversary of the day I was diagnosed with cancer. I know that for a lot … Continue reading

Rock The House Run

Today is a big day for the Dirty Girl! I was asked to be a part of a team! Really people, I don’t know if you understand how big of a deal this is. I haven’t been asked to be a part of a team since the 1989-90 cheerleading season at AA Leach Junior High. And I’m pretty sure that … Continue reading

Baby Needs New Shoes

And by “baby” I mean my car and by “shoes” I mean tires. How’s this for timing?…We knew that my 2010 Ford Flex would need 4 new tires before this winter. But who thinks of winter tires in August or September? I’m certain the first time I would have thought of tires would have been while sliding thru a stop … Continue reading

House of Hygge

Before we went on our 3 week camping trip we picked up 4 of these cozy onsies from House of Hygge. This Norwegian company developed a line of full length onsies for the young and old. These fun suits have adjustable cuffs at the ankles, pockets, zip hoods to hide your face, a thumb hole on the cuff and even a … Continue reading

Locks of Love

Today was a big day in our house. My 2 older daughters donated 10 inches of their hair to Locks of Love . We started talking about donating their ponytails back in February and let me tell you, they wanted nothing to do with the idea. As time passed and we kept talking about it they eventually warmed up to the … Continue reading

Summer Vacation (part 2) Good-bye Summer!

And the road trip continued. We drove from Osoyoos to Penticton and parked at the Wright’s Beach Campground . It’s a nice campground on Skaha Lake with large trees and a great beach for the kids. They play movies 2 nights a week in the grassy field, weather permitting and have organized games. If you “like” them on Facebook they post … Continue reading

Cherry Pickin’ Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up To Be!

I had this romantic family image in my mind that being in wine/fruit country we should embark as a family to an orchard to pick fresh fruit. Picture it, 4 cute little girls in flowy cotton dresses and sun hats wandering between the rows of fruit trees with their silver pails. Giggling and nibbling on ripe cherries and peaches as … Continue reading

Summer Vacation (part 1)

I know it’s been a while. What can I say, we’ve been busy. Very busy. For starters our house FINALLY sold on July 1st! I can’t tell you the relief this brings me. The house was on the market for the better part of a year so this was a long time coming. The only down side was that the … Continue reading

The Power Of Negotiation

Stella: Do you love us all the same? Daddy: Huh? What do you mean? Stella: Well, you have 4 kids so do you love us all the same or do you love 1 of us a little less? Daddy: Oh, of course, I love you all the same amount and that amount is very big! Stella: Are you sure? Cause … Continue reading
