A day where we celebrate love? I do have a soft spot for Vanlentine’s Day. Growing up my dad ALWAYS bought my sister and I at least one red rose and a box of Turtles. It wasn’t big or fancy or anything, but that Valentine’s Day tradition still warms by heart around this time of year. Do you exchange gifts? We don’t really give big gifts here for Valentine’s Day. We’re not anti-v-day or anything. But our anniversary is just around the corner, and my b-day just passed. But I still love to check out what I might like, you, know, if…

5 Faves Friday – Winter Style Edition

Five faves friday mommydo

  Winter has finally landed in Toronto so it’s time to grab your favourite winter garb and enjoy the season. There’s nothing better than a turtleneck sweater for chilly Sunday afternoons. This one, from Eileen Fisher is on my wish list. With the new retail location opening soon, it might be in my closet in no time. These amazing fleecy hats are made just around the corner from my home and are available in baby, toddler and adults sizes. You can find MiniEm on Etsy. This Lululemon jacket has been on my wish list since last year. I’ve been saving up my nickels…

5 Faves Friday: Craft Beer Edition

Fresh off the Blissdom craft beer tour bus, I give you 5 faves friday with the golden nectar of the gods. Three of these are local to Collingwood and delicious. The other two are close to home and are regulars both when we head out for a taste and in our fridge. Rooster Tail Pale Ale from Northwinds Brewhouse, Collingwood. Not only is the beer delicious, the french fries at the brew pub are also top notch. Downhill Pale Ale from Collingwood Brewery is one tasty brew. The cans are also super cute and the staff at the brewery are…

5 fav’s friday: falling

Fall is here! Finally. Fall is definitely my season. Sweaters. Boots. Comfort food. The best! Here are a few of my favourite fall things – some I have, some I’m lusting over. This one I have and absolutely love. It’s the Safari Jacket from Joe Fresh. I get TONS of compliments…so many that I’m considered buying the other colour. It’s the perfect weight now that fall is here. This one is a two product combo. Fall is pulled pork season out our house. Our Cuisinart Slow Cooker gets a great workout in the fall – often with this amazing Pulled Pork…

5 fav’s friday: Back to School Edition

5 Faves Friday: Back to School Edition There’s something about this time of year that makes me want to take a long look at where I want to go, and how I might get there. Back to school is still my ‘resolution time’. Here are my 5 picks for what I wish I had to get me ready for next Tuesday when the kids go back to school – the first day of my New Year. 1.

The long overdue review of Stokke Crusi

I’ve had the Stokke Crusi for about a year now, give or take. Which is a long time to take to get around to a review. I discovered the Stokke brand in 2009 when I was preparing for the arrival of the Bubble and googled best stroller for bad back. Up popped the Xplory. I was instantly sold, despite the hefty price tag. Fast forward to April 2013. After a long winter of being stuck inside with obviously not typically developing Obi hiding out from RSV season, I set about getting a new Xplory. I already had an upgraded seat…

Skinny Black Tie and a little help from Girl Friday

The Mommydo post hiatus you recently experienced brought to you by a stomach bug which crashed our long weekend by taking down the kids one after another then lying in wait 4 days before knocking me out for almost 4 more. Conveniently, said bug left me a whole 8.5 lbs lighter which is perfect timing for the fundraising gala husband and I have been invited to. Normally I would be shaking in my boots about finding something to wear to said “Black Tie Optional” function. Husband and I haven’t been out to anything I’ve had to dress up for since…

Feeling like a million bucks

I totally got personally styled and it was Ah-mazing. Wah? You heard right. I’m starting a work contract that happens in an actual office. In case you didn’t know, I’ve been working from home for 2 years – the first year I did a few contracts but also managed clients on my own and last year, on ‘mat leave’ I continued to work on my clients when projects came up. It was a very short lead time for this gig but I realized I needed to get out of the house and gain some perspective (staring at the baby wasn’t…
