Holiday Gift Guide for gamers of all ages

gamers-gift-guide

Welcome to the One Crazy Kid Holiday Gift Guide!  This is our second gift guide, and one near and dear to my heart, as we are a family of gamers. The family who games together, stays together and all that, right? We all game on different platforms, which is kind of neat because then we get exposed to different kinds of games. My husband and son are both PS4 and tablet gamers, and my son … [Read more...]

Gilmore Girls – like coming home to an old friend

wp-image-1195198174jpg.jpg

It's confession time. I hadn't watched a single episode of Gilmore Girls until earlier this year. Even worse, the first episode annoyed the snot out of me when I did try to watch the show. Young Rory was so weird and whiny and I couldn't stand her. I even asked on my FB page whether or not it was worth it to try and push through, to see if I'd be hooked in an episode or two. Everyone said to keep … [Read more...]

Holiday gifts for creative types

Welcome to the One Crazy Kid Holiday Gift Guide! It's that time of year, and if you are anything like me, your thoughts have turned to finding the "perfect" (what does that really mean, anyways?) gift for the important people in your life. I am really bad for putting pressure on myself to find the right gift for people and then inevitably end up debating on them for so long that I one day wake … [Read more...]

Jazz Loves Disney and so do we!

This is a sponsored post from Disney Music and One2One Network. All opinions are my own.  The music and movies of Disney have been a part of my life for pretty much as long as I remember. My mom likes to tell the story of how I listened to the record of The Rescuers so many times that I knew the entire thing by heart. As a teenager, I loved The Little Mermaid so much that it was a part of … [Read more...]

When you hear the words Dwayne Johnson, Polynesian and Pacific Island culture, Disney and coming soon(!!), what do you think of? If you are me, or any number of Disney fans, I hope the answer to that question is Moana!  From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. … [Read more...]

It’s all about the heroes

When you are searching for costume ideas, where do you look for inspiration? Do you look to books, or movies, or a favourite television show? Do you come up with a way to imitate or honour a favourite character or do you just let your imagination run wild?  Over the last several years, there has been a fairly consistent theme when it comes to costumes, especially Q's outfits. With the … [Read more...]

Picking up the pieces

2014-07-19-20.35.28.jpg.jpg

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to have a career.  When I was 5, my mom tells me that I quite proudly announced to the guy I had decided I was going to marry (as you do) that he could stay home with our children while I went to work and had a career. When I was in high school, I took honours and IB courses so that I could get into a good university. When I was in the Army, I … [Read more...]

Walking in colour

Recently, Q and I participated in our very first 5 km fun run.  I have this love-hate, actually let's be honest, it's really more of a hate-hate, kind of relationship with running. I'm not really built to be a runner, nor have I ever really been, but during various times in my life, *ahem Army days ahem*, I have done a lot of it. I know it's good cardio and exercise, and I hear every say … [Read more...]
