At Home Pamper Night

At Home Pamper Night

The hubby and I tend to spend our evenings hanging out and catching up on the latest Netflix craze or box office movie. Buuuutt since he’s been traveling so much for work, I’ve been trying to indulge in some much needed ‘me time’ every once in awhile. It’s been a great way to recharge and unwind for the night. I think I may even sleep better.. !? Continue reading “At Home Pamper Night”

A Quick Quinoa + Coconut Curry

A Quick Quinoa + Coconut Curry

I love me some quick and easy recipes, especially ones with limited dishes. Buuuttt I tend to lean towards heavier carbed meals just because it is easy and I know the kids will eat it. Coming from a more European upbringing, I also love me some heat and spiceย and have always enjoyed trying out different ethnic foods and recreating it myself! So one day, when I was craving to order-in from my favourrrite Thai restaurant with all my might, I fought back the urge and tried to make something similar with what I had in the fridge. The first couple of times, it was okay, nothing to rave about, but now.. I think I have it!!

Spring Break Snaps

Spring Break Snaps

Welp.. we made it guys!! What a whirl wind of a spring break! I thought I would be ready to get back into the hustle and bustle of our daily grind, but honestly I could use another week yet.

My to-do list is ever growing as I’m sure you fellow mamas can relate to, but these last two weeks were completely focused around family and time together. I don’t know if it’s because I feel our time coming to an end soon on the West Coast, so we need to soak it up as much as we can or that I feel our family’s disconnection with hubby traveling so much that I feel our time together is more precious then ever.

Immune Boosting Mini Muffins

It’s that time of year!! We’re in the thick of the dreaded cold and flu season. It’s so tough seeing your little ones struggle, our house hold is unfortunately under attack and it has taken 3 of the 4 of us. Sleepless nights, no appetite, and cranky moods have been our last few days and the few nibbles I could get from them are usually only something sweet. Little miss and I love to bake together and it’s been awhile.. Continue reading “Immune Boosting Mini Muffins”
