It looks like they’re getting ready to film season 3. If you’re wondering what it’s like to drive by the set in Aldergrove, I put together this photo drive-by for you. …

What To Expect When You’re Expecting Hand, Foot, And Mouth Disease

After a very interesting fall complete with a teacher’s strike that left my kids at home for over 3 months of summer vacation, I was ready for all 4 of my kids to be in the school full time. Once upon a time I had dreaded such a thing, and couldn’t imagine what I’d do with myself during the day …

Digital Healthcare Is A Mom’s Best Friend

digital healthcare

Back when I had my first baby and she became ill or was acting out of sorts, all I had were books to lean on. If I had to make a doctor’s appointment because I knew she was sick and getting sicker, I had to hang on the phone and keep checking back because I was constantly getting a busy …

#cybertalk

My daughter’s final project in elementary school was a speech on any topic she wanted to focus on. The only requirements were that it be 5 minutes long and something relevant to kids her age.

UnoTelly Review – Get Netflix USA in Canada

Netflix USA in Canada

I’ve never been shy about my disappointment in Canadian Netflix. After years of subscribing to the service, there still aren’t as many titles available on Netflix Canada vs Netflix USA. You’ve probably heard about and read the blog posts on how you can get Netflix USA in Canada while still using your current Netflix account, and it’s definitely true. It’s …

Hotel reviews – Cozy up to the Residence Inn Tustin

Residence Inn Tustin

There aren’t very many times I’d use the word ‘cozy’ when it comes to a hotel. Hotels are usually nice, clean, and sterile looking, designed to welcome you in and welcome you back out again. After all, if you’re only staying a night or two, you don’t need cozy. You need functional. But cozy is exactly what I’d call the …

Road Trip Planner – Dodge Grand Caravan is the best vehicle for the drive

dodge-caravan-roadtrip-to-disneyland

Driving from Vancouver to Disneyland takes stamina, patience, and a seriously reliable vehicle. This isn’t a drive for the faint of heart, because you’ll encounter flats, forests, and mountains, plus possibly some of the worst highway traffic I’ve ever seen on a road that’s supposed to be 120km/70 miles per hour speed limit. I’ve done the drive on the I5 …

How I Forced An Ikea Table To Turn Into A DIY FarmHouse Table (Photos)

ikea-hacks-kitchen-table

    This basic black Ikea Bjurstra table was the bane of my existence. I’d walk into my kitchen and I’d see it, all black and annoying, with it’s scratched up surface from too many tussles with a Bey Blade and having one too many hot pots just plunked down on it. No, it wasn’t very old – we bought …

Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel Review

disneyland-grand-californian-hotel-review

This Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel Review is a re-post of a review from my old blog, but it’s worth a read if you’re heading to the Anaheim area. The year was 1978 and I was 7 years old. I had just flown (back when you could smoke on airplanes, I remember there was a haze the entire time!) from Saskatchewan …

Hello Hotel Indigo! Review Of The Hotel Indigo Anaheim

eview-of-the-hotel-indigo-anaheim

There’s nothing I love more than a new hotel, and if given the choice I will always, always choose a new hotel over one that’s been there forever. This is especially true in Anaheim and for hotels near the Disneyland Resort. I have my favorites picked from staying in the area over the years, but if a new one pops up …
