DIY K-Cup Advent Calendar

DIY K-cup Advent Wreath

Somewhere between having 2 kids and becoming a stay at home mom, I became a coffee drinker.  I managed to make it through 4 years of university without touching a cup of coffee, but the sleepless nights with newborns and long days with toddlers quickly turned it into my preferred form of caffeine.

Friday Favorites: Three Little Words

Friday Favorites TitleOn Wednesday I did something I said I wasn’t going to do as a parent;  I let my son play hooky from school.  I had a chance to meet a friend and decided it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I let my son skip one day of Kindergarten to come along and play a round of minigolf with his sister and my friend’s son.  Hopefully this doesn’t bite me in the butt later down the road!

Since we were already out and about, we also decided to meet up with my husband for lunch.  We ended up with a bit of time to kill in between, so I decided to take a stroll through Chapters and finally check out the new American Girl section in the West Edmonton Mall store.

On our way out of the children’s section of the store, I happened upon this beautiful Finding Dory inspired book on the shelf of Staff Picks.  I was immediately drawn to Three Little Words because of the soft watercolors and beautiful imagery, and once I read the message inside I knew it was one I wanted to add to our collection.

Friday Favorites: Sing-A-Long Elsa

We had a lot of great moments on our trip to Disneyland this past February, but I think my absolute favorite moment was my 2 year old belting out her own rendition of Let it Go during the Frozen Sing-Along.

Friday Favorites: Qixels

Back in September we went to Toys R Us for their annual Play Day event and one of the toy samples we got was this fun little Qixel sword.  My 5 year old son is huge into Minecraft at the moment so when he received the small pack of 8 bit pixel beads to create a Minecraft-like sword, he was very excited to get home and try it out.
