    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. And some of the kids in my neighborhood, not always the best choice for people to build friendships with. Luckily, for me, I had parents who cared enough to keep me on “the straight and narrow”. 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…

    Celebrate Mom Every Day with Chamilia

    I was supposed to write this post for Mother’s Day but I thought “Why? Why should we just celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day? We should celebrate Mom every day!” We all know being a mom is more than a full-time gig – I mean we’re pretty much boo-boo doctors, taxi drivers, maids, therapists, and so much more. Not to mention the constant worry, I swear my brain doesn’t ever shut off even when I’m sleeping – I’m the first to hear the nightmare screams and when there are none it’s like my maternal clock is telling me, “even though they’re sleeping they’re too quiet”, and I still have to go…

Well…if you hate Spring cleaning as much as I do, you’ll still be putting it off. We (by that I mean my husband and kids) really make it hard on ourselves (by that I mean me since I’m always picking up after them) to keep things neat and tidy around here.…

    Maker March from DK Canada #Giveaway

    Disclosure: This link  may contain affiliate links. March Break is fast approaching – the kids will be out of school and ready to play but I’ll still have work to do. Keeping them busy can be hard sometimes especially when all they want to do is go on the computer, play on my phone or just about any other electronic you can think of. I’m okay with this, to a point – if they’re learning something, they can stay on it for as long as they want but if they just want to play on their game system for 4 hours or watch YouTube…it’s a hard NO. Computer coding for…

    Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Balls

    This post may contain affiliate links. Uh oh…I’ve made a HUGE mistake! I just made the most addicting sweet treat you can imagine – Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Balls. I’m not kidding! Have you tried them? They’re so moist and delicious, not to mention incredibly easy…I’m in trouble. Luckily, I only have one brick of cream cheese in the refrigerator and I need half of that brick for the Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas I’ll be making for dinner one day this week so I only ended up making a small batch of the Oreo cookie balls but I’m sure that’s enough to make my waistline hate me.

    Make a Difference in your Community & Fill a Tummy for a Toonie #Toonies4Tummies

    Did you know… Everyday 1 in 5 children go to school hungry. There are SO many different reasons why this happens; it’s not because their parents don’t care, it’s not because they have no food in their house…although, sadly sometimes these are the reasons. But more often than not it’s because their alarm clock didn’t go off on time and they had to rush to school or eating first thing in the morning makes them a little queasy, so they prefer to grab a quick snack at school. Regardless of the reasons, who are we to judge? The only thing we can do is try to prevent students from going…

    Let Netflix Help You Help Your Children #StreamTeam

    Kids these days seem to be a lot more mature for their age than they should be…maybe mature isn’t the right word, “advanced” might be a better one to use. I remember waking up super early every Saturday morning to watch cartoons and this lasted well into the beginning of my teen years. Now, it seems like kids don’t really even like cartoons. Take mine for example (4 and 9-years-old); if given a choice between Spiderman and Fuller House, without a doubt they are going to pick the latter and they have. You can’t really blame them – with the advancement in technology, for example; phones that let you store…

    Birthday Cake Cookies + Tasty Tuesday Linky

    Yesterday was little man’s 4th birthday. There wasn’t much we could do to beat the fun and excitement he already experienced at his birthday party over the weekend with our extended family. Nonetheless, we still wanted to make this a special day for him; this included dinner out with our little family and Birthday Cake Cookies made by myself and the little guy. Dinner was great, besides the fact that our boys apparently don’t get out very much. These cookies more than made up for them because “they taste just like birthday cake!” his words, not mine. Ingredients      • 1 cup margarine      • 1 cup granulated sugar     …
