Why Do We Say That Blood Is Thicker Than Water?

I know we’ve all heard it a hundred times in our lives and it’s usually meant to imply that our blood bonds are stronger than anything. That our loyalty to them is deeper and forever and those relationships are worth saving at all costs. While I believe relationships take effort, I don’t believe they should take work, at least not on a long term, ongoing basis. I do believe certain relationships warrant more effort or possibly work based on their…

My Favourite Cheeseball Recipe of All Time

I know I’ve mentioned it before – but I’m a complete cheese addict. I really do think it just makes everything taste better. So when my sister in law made this cheeseball for Christmas several years ago, I was a little embarrassed how much I ate (good thing she brought a few of them). It is SO good…and a perfect little appetizer/snack to take to a get together…or on a plate surrounded by Wheat Thins {or my new favourite, Breton…

Three Tiered Skirts

Way back in 2010, my cousin, Laura gave me a huge sewing bug after she made some adorable skirts for her girls. I had to follow suit, and soon found myself knee deep in fabric and multiple patterns. lol I decided to start small/basic with this Three Tiered skirt pattern which I LOVED! And so did Brooklyn, PLUS they were really easy to make. {Photo Credit: Eternal Reflections Photography – except the photo above, taken by me and edited by ERP} And the best…

The Polka Dot Chair

I WANT TO MAKE THIS!!! Another blog found from aimless internet wandering 🙂 As we all know I’m on a bit of a skirt sewing kick – and now that the weather is turning (much to my dismay – I’m so not ready to say goodbye to the summer sunshine) I know I’ll be spending a whole lot more time at my sewing machine! This has promptly been added to my list – a fantastic tutorial from The Polka Dot…

Rocky Mountain Soap Company

It has been almost 3 years since we’ve had a tub in our house, but finally the kids’ bathroom is complete and we have a BEAUTIFUL tub that I relax in at least 3 times a week. As such, I wanted to really enjoy a pampering experience. Last year my cousin gifted me some natural soaps from the Rocky Mountain Soap Co. AND one of my coworkers is also a huge fan – in fact, she recently purchased some items and the…

Spinach Salad with Raspberry-Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

I’m a sucker for a good homemade salad dressing, and am always looking for a new recipe. This fits the bill completely. And soooo easy (they often are) and seriously scrumptious. For the salad: Spinach a bunch of fruit cut up into bite sized pieces (apples, grapes, mandarins, strawberries, raspberries, melon, etc.) sliced almonds or pecans (I like to sugar mine – equal parts margarine and sugar….melt and mix together in pan, add nuts and stir. watch carefully so they…

Fun and Delicious Kool-Aid Popcorn

This is a great treat to make with the kids and it’s so delicious too!

Stir in baking soda and Kool-aid and pour over 6 quarts of…

Be Scared and Do it Anyway

Last summer, in a gutsy move, Jonah agreed to try kneeboarding. He was a little nervous but my cousin reassured him he would be okay and showed him what to do. He only tried once but that was enough. The rope came off and he flipped over, but his knees didn’t pop out of the straps like he expected. So while his head was never under the water, he was certain he was drowning and just moments from death. I’m…
