& so the Adventure Begins..

It’s the time of Starbucks PSL’s, warm knit sweaters and no longer worrying if your summer bod is exactly where you want it to be… today is THE FIRST DAY OF FALL!! As I sit here drinking my coffee, with a little Pumpkin Spiced Baileys (HELLO… how is this my first time trying it?! Can we […]

Fresh Strawberries & Cinnamon French Toast

That locally grown food though..

So at the beginning of the summer I said to myself “make sure you take photos of all your Crampton’s Market hauls so you can write this fabulous blog post at the end of summer…” well yeah, that didn’t happen. Whoops!! Well it happened one time, right near the beginning (even though it was like […]

Addicted to Smoothies

If there’s one thing I love for breakfast, particularly in the summer, it’s smoothies! I mean come on, they’re fast & easy, delicious, nutritious, and you can change it up every single day! I’m pretty sure I’ve had a smoothie 6 out of 7 days a week for the last 2 months. There is NOTHING […]

August… ALREADY?!

  Okay, WOW! Where has the time gone?! Sorry I’ve been so MIA… It seems everything always gets jam packed into the shortest of short summers here in Manitoba and I’ve barely had time to think… let along blog. Whoops! But rather than dwelling on what I didn’t do, I’m going to move forward and […]

I don’t know about you, but something about the thought of summer screams “READ ALL THE BOOKS!” to me.

Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies

  If you’re following me on social media (which you should be!) you hopefully saw I posted a sneak peek of this post.. well here it is,  my absolute favourite Easter treat! I don’t know what it is about Cadbury Mini Eggs, but they’re pretty much my definition of Easter. I know you can get […]

Kaleo & The Lumineers

Last night I was lucky enough to receive tickets to see The Lumineers play at the MTS Centre. First off let me start by saying that I must live under a rock because I had never heard of either of the openers and unfortunately we arrived a little too late and missed the first opener. […]

Sunday Mud-day

Sunday’s are a day for me to prepare for the week ahead. A typical sunday includes doing copious amounts of laundry, hanging with the pup, some grocery shopping, dinner with the fam, and being as lazy as I possibly can. For some reason, sunday’s have ended up being the day that I do a mud […]
