About Me

My photo

I work in the city but I love living in the 'burbs so much we moved there - despite my crazy commute. The closer I get to home, the more relaxed I feel.
This Mama can't wait to share all the fabulous finds and 'must have' things that come my way. After all, if something's great I've gotta tell everyone! 
Join me as I share the ups and downs of suburban living, my journey to be more creative and organized (even with 2 super active little boys) and a whole lot of this and that. While I live in Fraser Valley, B.C., it's easy to translate the suburban experience to pretty much anywhere - and even city folk love to leave the hustle and bustle sometimes!
And living in the most expensive corner of the country, it takes a little savvy to keep it all together.  I'll share what I've learned - and hopefully you will, too!

It’s not often that a Mom’s life has a whole lot of mystery in it – after all, we work hard to get our routines down pat, make sure everyone knows where everything is, and get everyone everywhere all the time.  It’s hard to find time for ourselves, let alone a little mystery (and secretly I think we yearn for it).  But once in a while something REALLY fun comes along…
I give you… the Great Mystery Box Giveaway!!!     I’m excited to be able to help promote this fabulous giveaway hosted by four of my favourite Canadian bloggers: The Knit Wit By Shair, Maple Leaf Mommy, Did You Know Canada and Talking Momcents.

I remember choosing grab packs as a kid. There was nothing so cool as getting that brown paper bag filled with… well… I didn’t know but I couldn’t wait to find out! And now – you have a chance to win a whole box! (way cooler than the paper bag)
