We recently celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday and the birthday girl requested a Moana themed party.  Even though we planned a very small family celebration, I love a good theme and can’t help myself from coming up with a few DIY projects to set the scene and make her day extra special.

Disney Inspired Treats_Mickey Soft Pretzels National Pretzel Day April 26

April 26 is National Pretzel day and today my family is celebrating with these delicious Mickey soft pretzels I baked up yesterday.  Judging by how many my husband enjoyed, I think this will definitely have to be a repeat recipe in our house.

Our den has been rather neglected since moving in. It is a multi-purpose room that houses our home office and computer, as well as serves as a guest room when we have company.  Since we don’t often have overnight guests, it usually just ends up as a catch-all for the odds and ends of projects I am working on.  It has never felt like a very cohesive space and in order to make it more finished and homey, I decided to hang some curtains and finally get some artwork up on the bare walls.

A Week in Waterton

A Week in Waterton_10 Ways to Discover Waterton & Glacier National Park

In August 2016 we hitched up our trailer and made the journey down to Southern Alberta to spend some time camping and enjoying beautiful Waterton National Park.  We had attempted this trip years earlier and were disappointed when we were unable to find a camping spot due to it being a busy long weekend.  We learned our lesson, and this time we arrived right after the long weekend, and camped during the weekdays when it tends to be less crowded.
