To The Edge and Beyond – Summer Adventures #streamteam

Published July 30, 2015 at 2:47 pm - No Comments

It’s summer, which also translates directly into ‘adventure’! I love an adventure… like nice hotels when travelling with the kids, a leisurely shopping day, city tour, or spa appointment with my girls. I know, you were thinking by adventure I meant hiking, camping or something a bit more typically ‘adventurous’. That’s okay, I’ll leave those types […] IWEBIX Webdesign

2015 Ford Expedition | Review

Published July 27, 2015 at 10:00 am - No Comments

The 2015 Ford Expedition fit all of our needs, and we all enjoyed it. Overall, it was my husband’s number one pick for vehicles we have driven this year. I was surprised that it fit into our garage and we managed just fine with getting in and out of the back seats in the driveway. […]

The Closet Cleanup

Published July 23, 2015 at 4:52 pm - No Comments

About twice a year I go through my own closet to purge and reorganize. My closet begins to look cluttered, disorganized and just plain messy, as you can see above. Purging the closet speeds up my morning routine because it’s easy for me to tell what I’d like to wear when everything is so visible. Now, […]

2015 Toyota RAV4 | Review

Published July 20, 2015 at 10:00 am - No Comments

As far as family vehicles go, the RAV4 is a strong contender as long as you’re okay with a five-seater. This is a very agile small SUV with the get-up-and-go for urbanite families, even those who do the occasional road tripping. The back cargo area is large enough for plenty of gear and groceries, as […]

We have been listening to a lot of Becky G at my house lately! So I was pretty excited to hear that she is part of the Family Channel Big Ticket Family Concert this summer! And it’s coming to cities across Canada this August, so we’ll be checking out the Abbotsford show. Family’s annual Big […]

2015 Toyota Highlander | Review

Published July 13, 2015 at 10:00 am - No Comments

The Toyota Highlander surprised me. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, and the interior was hands-down my favourite this year. This was also my first experience driving a Hybrid vehicle of any kind. When you start it, it’s so quiet and the motor doesn’t kick in for a couple of seconds […]

2015 Lincoln Navigator | Review

Published July 3, 2015 at 10:19 pm - No Comments

We have been driving various family vehicles this year to review them and to see if they may be a fit for our family and find out if we’re ready to move away from a mini-van or not. Last month we drove the 2015 Lincoln Navigator. I knew it would be huge, and I knew […]

My Teeth Are Feeling Squeeky Clean #GetTheFeeling

Published June 24, 2015 at 4:07 pm - No Comments

I recently told you about how the Sonicare Diamond Clean arrived (in pink no less!) on my doorstep. I immediately loved the design, the very-cool charging station that doubles as an actual rinsing glass and holder for the toothbrush and the multiple settings. (see my previous post to see pics of these features) What I didn’t […]
