    10 Cleaning Products You Need on Moving Day + #LibmanGiveaway

    This past July marked a milestone for my husband and me, one that we’ve been working towards for many years. We finally purchased our own home, no more having to rent and basically throw our money away. We are now homeowners! As great of an accomplishment purchasing our first house has been for us, moving into a home is not all sunshine and rainbows. • We purchased a home that was built in the 1940’s and with that has seemed to come with some “projects”. • When something breaks you can’t just call your landlord. • The owners before us had not cleaned those hard to reach areas in quite…

    5 Ways to Prevent the Common Cold During the School Year+ #Giveaway

    When kids come home after a day at school they bring all kinds of things with them; class pets, library books, homework, friends… All of these are usually welcome in any home (except for maybe the class pets) with open arms. However, there’s something kids bring home during the school year that’s NEVER welcome, and that’s the common cold. The common cold usually affects the upper respiratory system; sinuses, throat, chest and is no fun at all for anyone! Knowing the necessary precautions to take that’ll prevent your child from getting sick is key during any time of year. However, seems to be even more so during the school year.…

    First French Dictionary & My First French Book At Home #Review + #Giveaway

    Parlez-vous français? Neither do I or my husband. In fact, besides the mandatory French classes, I took up till grade 9, I really don’t know a whole lot of Canada’s “other” first language. It seems whenever you look in the paper under the WANTED headlines, the majority of jobs posted ask for “a bilingual speaking applicant”. As unfortunate as this is for me, it’s something I’ve learned from and therefore want my kids to be bilingual, this is one of the reasons why we chose a french immersion school for our boys. The earlier a child learns a second language the easier it will be. There are two titles that…

    Bath Time Baby Shower Gift + #CetaphilBaby #Giveaway

    Babies are messy! They have explosions in their diapers, spit up just about everything they take in and it’s almost like they have a hole in their mouth because milk is constantly dribbling out of their mouth. It’s no surprise that they start to smell sour after a couple of hours of being awake. This is why I think every first-time parent needs a Bath Time Theme baby shower gift – they’re the PERFECT unisex gift so you can start purchasing the items a little bit at a time to help make your money stretch. Bath Time Baby Shower Gift Before anything else you need to purchase the baby bathtub…

    The Power of #OxiCleanChallenge: A Mom of Boys Dream + #Giveaway

    As a mom, I hate to admit when it comes to taking any stains out of my boy’s clothes, I’m an instant failure – I would much rather go out and buy another article of clothing than trying to get a stain out. Laundry is definitely not my forte. Being a mom of boys is messy! They pee on the toilet seat, use their clothes as napkins and get “rough & tumble” on the ground all the time. So, when I was asked to use the stain fighting power of OxiClean pre-treaters and in-wash stain fighters in a monthly challenge – naturally, I jumped at the chance. I may go…

    Have Fun with #NASCAR & the NEW #AccelerationNation App + #Giveaway

    NASCAR® and its marks, including NASCAR Acceleration NationTM, are trademarks of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners. My boys are HUGE fans of cars, and by boys, I’m not just talking about my kids. My husband has been collecting all kinds of cars for our boys, even before Lucas was able to walk. It’s because of this that Colton’s obsession (with pretty much anything that has wheels) and want to constantly play with their collection is no surprise to me. Over the years I’ve watched the three of them get excited over “the cool” cars on the street…

    Survive the Summer with DK Canada + #Giveaway

    It’s the last day of school! This is a bittersweet moment for most parents, especially ones like me who work from home. On one had, the kids are home and that means you get to spend more time with them!

Thankfully,…

    Canada Screams for Ice Cream #TreatYourCommunity + #Giveaway

    I grew up in the core area of Winnipeg, Manitoba. While not as bad as the streets have been as of recent, they still weren’t always the safest.

I had a place my friends and I could go after school to keep us out of trouble. A place where we felt safe, welcomed, had adult supervision but could still have fun hanging out. Canada Screams for Ice Cream will help the youth in your…

    Summer Fun with Giant Gazillion Bubbles from Funrise Toys #Giveaway

    Let me first start off by saying, who doesn’t love bubbles?! Seriously, put bubbles in front of anyone and you will see the kid in them come out – this rings true for everyone, I don’t care who they are. Take my husband, for instance, he’s a big outdoorsy, no-nonsense kind of guy but if you throw some bubbles in front of him, you’ll see the big fun-loving kid in him come out. He could stand around with our boys blowing bubbles all day and who can blame him – or anyone, for that matter – watching bubbles floating through the sky is just so darn relaxing. Especially, if you’re…
