There is No Tooth Fairy for Pets ~ This and Other #DentalPetFacts


About eighteen months ago, we decided our lone (and lonely) kitty needed a friend, so we adopted a beautiful little cat from a cat rescue program. This poor little kitty had endured horrendous abuse and was little more than skin and bones.  Although she was full-grown, the vet estimated her age to be about two years, she only weighed just a little over 3 pounds. I am happy to tell you, she is now the most loving (and loved) pet on the planet! She has more than doubled her weight and now … [Read more...]

~ CLOSED ~ I Have a Tableful of Reasons to be #ThankFALL {$250 Target Canada GC Giveaway)


Even though we recently had a few warm days, they are now just a memory.  Right now,  I am sitting at my desk, wrapped in my cozy sweater, looking out the window.  I no longer see summer, I see and feel the rapidly approaching autumn. The grass is tinged with yellow and beautiful maple, elm and birch trees are partly cloaked in leaves of red, yellow and orange. There is no denying it, summer is gone. However, on the upside, Thanksgiving, one of my favourite holidays, is quickly approaching. I … [Read more...]

Mostly good changes...and arguably,  some maybe not so good! Many of us now seem to spend our waking lives glued to our laptops and iPhones; we're checking our "virtual" mail, Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ and the list continues.  The only things that seem to come in the "actual" … [Read more...]

Have I Found My One & Only? (w/Atlantic Canada Contest)

Café Santo Domingo

Anyone who knows me can attest to my great love for coffee. We often grind our own beans and always make a 12 cup pot to start our day. (Sometimes we even make a pot twice) Yes, you read that correctly, 12 - 24 cups!  However, I don't drink it all, my husband works from home and I share it with him! I am a bit ashamed to say we haven't been loyal to any one brand of coffee.  I'm not sure why that would make me feel ashamed. I guess I feel by our age we should have settled down with our … [Read more...]

{CLOSED} Go Back-to-School & #RocktheHalls with Sears! {w/Giveaway}


I have always found September and Back-to-School to be an exciting time of the year. There is an element of anticipation related to heading back to school. The kids are reuniting with friends they haven't seen all summer, meeting their new teacher, finding out who their classmates will be, making new friends and looking forward to fun school and extracurricular activities. However, there is also a bit of anxiety for both the parents and the kids. For mom and dad, it's an expensive time of … [Read more...]
