So glad you could join us as we share our giveaways on Tuesday’s Giveaway Link Ups.
We all laughed at our mother and grandmother for crossing their legs when they laughed or sneezed. They’re old they can’t help themselves, little did we know, one natural birth later we’d be doing the same thing.
After I had Austin I made a point of doing my kegel exercises. I didn’t want to be peeing my pants every time I sneezed, I was too young for that. Then I had Brookland and I was doing my kegel exercises again. But here’s the kicker: I still pee myself.
The first time it happened I had taken the girls for a morning walk. I saw our driveway and it hit me, I had to pee. I couldn’t get them out of the stroller fast enough.
Now, three babies later my bladder is a joke. I can’t laugh or sneeze without crossing my legs.
For Easter the girls got a trampoline. I love it. Therefore I love SAM. I feel confident that I can jump all I want. Read the rest of this entry →
As many of you probably know, I’m from the South shore of Nova Scotia, the East Coast of Canada. The pink dots on the map below, are general areas of where I have lived. I have never met nicer, friendlier people. And boy do we love our Tim Horton’s!
Last year when we drove home to Nova Scotia, we stopped at every Tim’s in our path. When at our first one in New Brunswick, a woman, two people behind me in line, and I started chatting. A completely stranger. I knew I was home, back in the Maritimes. Read the rest of this entry →
Back in Nova Scotia there is the Discovery Centre in Halifax. I always wanted to take the girls there, and their cousins if I was brave enough. However, we no longer live close enough to go, and there is never enough time during vacations. Then we learned of the Saskatchewan Science Centre.
It is only an hour away from us.
Hubby had a week of vacation so during the week we headed up to the city for fun and shopping. First stop was the science centre. Of course, as usual, we didn’t tell the girls where we were going. Austin, being the smarty pants that she is put 2 and 2 together as we were pulling into the parking lot.
The main reason for the timing of this visit was that they currently have a Dinosaur Exhibit there until September 28th. We had talked of different dinosaur places that are area but they are at least 5 hours away, this was perfect timing.
I had forgotten my camera so I took pictures on Hubby’s cell phone – 150 pictures. Here are just a few of those.
With the summer heat upon, I still want something sweet, and usually that involves baking. I am on a mission to find tasty meals that I can make in my slow cooker. I am looking for the same great taste, same texture, same everything. I’m going to start off with with Apple Crisp.
Start with 4-5 apples. Peeled and sliced. My melon slicer while big does a great job slicing my apples. I used Gala as that’s what was in my fridge.
Lightly butter the slow cooker and lay the apple slices in the bottom. Read the rest of this entry →
