100 New Year’s Resolutions

January 1st, 2017|100 LISTS, For me|

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

November 25th, 2016|100 LISTS, HOLIDAYS, ORGANIZE|

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

September 22nd, 2016|100 LISTS, Uncategorised|

I’ve seen this listing of 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’ve 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 and forget (again, and again).

This time, my Vet gave me a tear-away page to bring home with me.

I’ve searched online and I cannot find the original version […]

100 Things 2 Do This Summer

June 19th, 2016|100 LISTS, FREE PRINTABLES, KIDS|

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

April 10th, 2016|100 LISTS, FREE PRINTABLES, KIDS|

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

January 30th, 2016|100 LISTS, CLEAN, FREE PRINTABLES, ORGANIZE|

*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

December 25th, 2015|100 LISTS, FREE PRINTABLES|

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

November 1st, 2015|100 LISTS, FREE PRINTABLES, HOLIDAYS|

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 […]

How to Get Your kids to Read – the 100 Chapters Challenge

July 16th, 2015|100 LISTS, BOOKS, FREE PRINTABLES, GAMES / FUN, KIDS|

There must be something your kids want.

Some treat or experience or object that they have been whining 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?

This challenge can work out for both of you – keeping their brains sharp over summer vacay and offering them a prize at the end…. (as if reading wasn’t enough of a prize?)
