Happy New Year!

This is it – the final, waning moments of 2017 and, like every year, I will be sad to see it go.

I’m not a huge believer in New Year’s Resolutions – mainly because I can’t even stick to a diet for 24 hours – but there is some validity to putting your hopes, dreams, wishes and goals out there;

maybe it’s just to have them in the forefront of your mind (even if just for a day), maybe it’s to aspire […]

100 Things 2 Do Before the Holidays

Yup, it’s that time!

Time to get your 100 Things 2 Do Before the Holidays checklist and post it on your fridge to keep you ahead of the game this Holiday Season.

The goal of this list is not to make you feel overwhelmed or over-burdened – quite the opposite actually. It’s meant to help you space out those seasonal chores so that you can actually participate in Christmas, and not just facilitate it.

100 New Year’s Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello my happy, healthy and eager friends…

or given last night was New Year’s Eve should that be hello to my tired, hung over and slow-moving friends?

Either way – we made it!

Whether you found 2016 to be one giant $h!t show, or a year of growth and happiness, now’s the time to start a new and even better chapter in your book.

BRING ON 2017!

With that in mind, I decided to revisit my 100 New Year’s Resolutions list to see […]

100 Things 2 Do Before Christmas

It’s Thanksgiving weekend in the U.S. so pre Black-Friday mayhem and post Thanksgiving-feast-binge, I thought I’d revisit my 100 Things 2 Do Before Christmas (100 things to do before Christmas) checklist.

This was a HUUUUUUUGE hit last year, and seems to be making the rounds on Pinterest boards all over the world again right now – so I thought I’d revisit to give you a chance to copy, print, post or save it to help you get organized up-to, for, and […]

Plants and Pets

Before bringing plants into your home, check to make sure they aren’t toxic to pets or children.  This “Pet-friendly plants” list is a great starting point.

I’d seen this listing of common house plants that are “Pet-friendly plants” and “Toxic plants for pets” at my Veterinarian’s office the past few times I’ve been.  Each time I thought “this would make a GREAT blog post!”  I’ve taken photos with my iPad and made a mental note to post something…

Then I build something […]

100 Things 2 Do This Summer

If you’ve followed the blog over the past few years, you will have seen this “100 Things 2 Do This Summer” list – but for those of you that are new, it’s worth repeating…

Three years ago I was faced with the challenge of staying home with my kids all summer long.  My employer had retired and there was no benefit to seeking other employment at the beginning of summer when I’d just have to pay out daycare expenses.

But staying home […]

Texting Acronyms Parents NEED to Know

Madison and I attended a course on the weekend that was intended to help tweens feel more comfortable home alone.

Granted, I’m a stay-at-home Mom, so the need doesn’t arise very often, but on those rare occasions where I want to run in and out of the grocery store without the pre-battle to get the girls to come with me, I thought it would be of value.

The afternoon session of the course had kids in one room going over fire […]

Clearing Clutter – 100 things you can get rid of right now

*Repost from 02/07/15 But great ideas are always in style!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a “100 List” and my friend (Amazing Amy) pointed out that since it’s the meme of the blog – perhaps it was time to post another one.

We’re post-Christmas, pre-Spring-cleaning, so the focus shifts to clearing clutter from your home.

100 Random Acts of Kindness

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope the past couple of days have been spent in the warm embrace of family and friends – with full tummies and lots of gratitude.

It has been for me anyways.  Christmas Eve was spent with my brother and his wife and my Dad (and my brood of course), Christmas day was spent with my Dad, a napping husband and sugar-stoned kids and Boxing Day holds another Christmas for us with my Mom and Step-Dad.  We are blessed, […]

100 Things 2 Do Before Christmas Checklist

It’s TIME!

Hallowe’en is over (WAHOO!) and now I can go full-on with Christmas!

I love adore Christmas.  I even went so far as to give one of the girls the middle name “Noelle” (french for Christmas).

It’s not the religious aspects or the gifts – it’s the feeling of warmth and togetherness that it brings.  Decorations come out to make the home cozy and welcoming, baking goes into overdrive to make sure tummies are full and the kids dance around the house with […]

100 Things 2 Do this Fall

This is a repeat printable from last year, but with the weather turning a bit cooler and the leaves starting to change, I was in the mood to print and post a version for my family – so I thought you might like one too.

How to Get Kids to Read – the 100 Chapters Challenge

There must be something your kids want.

Some treat or experience or object that they have whined for?  (yeah right – what don’t they want right?)

Kind of like how you whine to them about cleaning their rooms and keeping up with their summer reading?

If you are struggling to get kids to read, then perhaps this 100 Chapters Challenge will incentivize them to start.

This challenge can work out for both of you – keeping their brains sharp over summer vacay and offering […]

100 Things 2 Do This Summer

For those of you in the States, school has probably been out for a week or two already, but here in Ontario – it lets out TOMORROW!

I don’t know whether to be excited or terrified – I mean, I’m SO SICK of packing lunches and yelling at the girls to get ready each morning….

But on the other hand, I’ll be alone with them…  both of them…   all summer….

I’m not going to lie, my girls are smarter than I am, […]

Earth Day – it’s time to BE the change

Inspirational quotes and motivational posters aside today…. it’s time to ACT on all those verses we love to frame and hang.

Today it’s time to “Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Ghandi

We, as a people have taken great strides in learning and even implementing various “green” ideas; from reducing household chemicals to the move to organic foods.  We recycle, repurpose, compost and plant.  We buy energy-efficient lightbulbs, appliances and have even made moves to more […]

100 Funny Team Names – revisited

100 Funny Team Names is another post that I wrote last year, but that I still chuckle at.  It’s gaining a lot of Pinterest traffic, so I guess people are getting ready for Spring sports, walk-a-thons and races and it seemed appropriate to share it again.

While I was surfing the internet compiling my list I was laughing out loud at some of […]

New Year’s Resolutions 2015

I took a couple of days off over the Holidays and didn’t put up any new blog content… but the blog kept going.

Even without posting a single word – the blog saw over 2,000 page views each day!

I was thrilled of course, but very curious as to what it was that was attracting people so I took […]
