12. These Cookies are the Bomb for a New Mom

12. These Cookies are the Bomb for a New Mom

What kind of bees make milk? Boobies bahahaha, this joke never gets old. When your a new mom trying to figure out the ropes, the first couple of weeks are REALLY HARD. I remember being sleep deprived and hungry all the time. Considering the 24/7 feeding schedule, feeding a baby takes a lot out of you. I was so thankful I spent 2 weeks baking easy one handed snacks. A lot of my friends became new moms this year so…

11. Make Someone Feel like They have Good Luck by Leaving Behind an Extra Buck

11. Make Someone Feel like They have Good Luck by Leaving Behind an Extra Buck

As the cart says Simple, so this post shall be too. Leave a loonie in a cart and guaranteed this will make someone’s day.  They may keep the loonie, and all the while be singing ‘I’ve got a loonie, I’ve got a loonie, I’ve got a loonie, hey, hey, hey, hey. OR maybe they pass this gesture along to the next person. Think about doing this when it is extra cold out and you yourself don’t want to be digging around to…

10. Think of a Small Way you can Change a Persons Day

You know those days when you wake up and the whole day it feels like the world is against you?  The coffee didn’t make it into the filter so you have a pot of hot water, you get barfed on and need to change clothes, you’re running late for work and you get a low gas light, you forgot your lunch, accident on the way home so you’re stuck in traffic and then by the time you near home you remember you…

8/9. Helping Mums Cover their Baby Bums

8/9. Helping Mums Cover their Baby Bums

Mommin ain’t easy! Most of the time I am impressed with myself for remembering to put on deodorant. When you are sleeping 5-6 hours (not consecutively) a night, you would be impressed with yourself too! Here is the thing, babies be pooping and peeing all.the.time. That means a lot of moola going to diapers each month and according to the Calgary Food Bank, 1 in 5 Canadian moms can’t afford clean diapers for their babies. I understand the physical, mental and…

7. Doing Some Good in the Neighbourhood

7. Doing Some Good in the Neighbourhood

“Oh, I love trash! Anything dirty or dingy or dusty Anything ragged or rotten or rusty Yeah, I love trash” ( I love Trash Song Sesame Street) I can’t say that I have the same enthusiasm for trash as Ocscar the Grouch. BUT we can agree that I would rather see it in a trash can then all over the ground! I decided that before the rain, yes RAIN comes that I wanted to do a little clean up. There…

6. A Click of a Mouse, Could help to Rebuild a House

6. A Click of a Mouse, Could help to Rebuild a House

I know I know, I’m waaaay behind on this past weeks post. I am just getting over a summer plague and only beginning to think kind of straight. Being a mom is hard. Being a sick mom, taking care of a sick teething baby is even harder, sleep is NOT overrated. Oh 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep I miss you, one day I hope to meet again. I will say that there is one positive of being sick, my normal blood…

5. Everything is Better with Cheddar

You open up an old purse and there beside that lip gloss you have been missing forever, is a forgotten $5…SCORE! I get just as excited if I find a loonie in a winter jacket, finding money unexpectedly is awesome. It makes you feel instantly wealthier! I know I am not alone in this. Something so small and it brings so much happiness. I actually found $5 in an old purse this past weekend, which inspired me for this weeks act….

4. Scoop Da Poop!

Ooooh that smell Can’t you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you… Ever find that, ‘The Smell’ song by  Lynyrd Skynyrd, pops into your head when you are trying to locate the source of an unpleasant aroma? Well if not, you probably will the next time! I love getting home after a nice walk and realizing that I have poop on my shoe….said NO ONE EVER! As Peter Griffin would say, ‘It really grinds my gears!’…

3. A Friend In Need, Is a Friend Indeed.

Pet owners do some pretty crazy things when it comes to their furry legged friends, and I am one of them! I would do anything for my pup Olive and I know I am not alone. Just look at my dogs diet, she eats better than me: Elk, Goat or Duck Patties with a hint of either hemp or coconut oil and sprinkled with digestive enzymes. For her late night dessert she gets plain yogurt with a probiotic. According to the Naturopath, yes a Nautropath for dogs,…

2. Giving Back at The Pump, When the Gas Prices Jump

2. Giving Back at The Pump, When the Gas Prices Jump

Ahhh, the long weekend is here, 3 days of sleeping in (unless you have a 10 month old who’s wake up time is 5am). You’ve decided to brave the traffic and head out of town,  everything is loaded up and you’re pulling out of the driveway and you look down and see the gas gauge is almost on empty….crap…double crap, the gas prices just went up 16 cents. The worst. I think Neil Pasricha, author of www.1000awesomethings.com,described perfectly what happens to gas prices when we get…
