Meal Prepping and Forceful Nesting

With baby time fast approaching and coinciding directly with Fit Boy’s emergence into the world of preschool, I have decided that even though I have no desire to nest, I need to get my butt nesting. Pronto. Even though my first two babies came decidedly late (10 days and 13 days to be exact), IContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Is it time to Slow Down?

Last week was unofficially birthday week for my hubby. I tend to stretch out his and the boys’ birthdays over the span of a week for some reason. Maybe I’m over-compensating for my ill-fated December 17 birthday that’s often hard to really celebrate because of the time of year. Or maybe I just like cake.Continue Reading

Answering your Pregnancy Questions

I haven’t been doing regular pregnancy updates because…well, I’m lazy. Plus, after 2 pregnancies, what is perhaps exciting to others (maybe?) isn’t as exciting to me. But given that I have less than 2 months to go and that I don’t sleep and can’t workout as much or train for any races right now (whichContinue Reading

Birthday Celebrations and a Visit with the Minimalists.

Yesterday was a fun day of celebration. My hubby’s birthday. I love birthdays. I used to not give them much thought and truthfully, I don’t really think too much about my own, but my hubby and kids are a whole different ballgame. I love how we approach the day: not with a focus on giftContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Bring on the Heat!

This weekend was a scorcher! First super hot weekend of the summer (better late than never). I think we pretty much saw it all, from freak thunder showers to rainbows to blistering hot sunshine. It was an awesome weekend to celebrate a very cool guy in my life: my hubby! Technically, his birthday isn’t untilContinue Reading

Our Planes: Fire & Rescue Adventure

I was recently approached by Disney Canada about becoming a mom ambassador for their Disney Baby brand. I wasn’t sure at first. After all this is a blog about me, my life, my fitness/running etc. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that although this blog is about me, a hugeContinue Reading

Witnessing the Heart of a Two-Year Old

I should be sleeping. *should* Darn legs just don’t want to let me be. But I’m determined not to let these final two months of pregnancy be my undoing, hard as that can be when I’m so tired I could literally fall asleep on my feet (the only position where my restless legs don’t botherContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Our First Family Road Trip

We are done our holidays. Wow. That week went by quickly. Far too quickly. We decided to really go on a road trip adventure and loaded the kids up in Bessie, put a movie in the DVD player and set off for a 3 day, 2 night stay just south of the boarder at aContinue Reading

A Day at the Spa

Last mother’s day, my hubby and the boys gave me a gift card to one of the spas in the city. I really, truly appreciated the gift because it was a push for me to go and take some time for myself and get a little pampering done. I don’t usually go for stuff likeContinue Reading
