Going under Cover- Music Monday

I have to admit, I'm having a lot of fun coming up with new playlists for this new format of Music Monday. I'm not sure how y'all feel about it, but I'm liking it. This week, I wanted to highlight some really cool cover songs. I'm a sucker for a well done cover tune, especially when it's done in a way that is totally different from the original, or reimagined in a way I never thought it could be … [Read more...]

This is Halloween – Music Monday returns

It's Halloween. Before long all the little ninjas and unicorns will be out on parade, and how better to celebrate that with the return of our music playlists? I've been thinking about resurrecting Music Monday for a while. It is one of my favourite things to write, and I hope you all like it too. I love finding new and old songs to share, and link them together with a common theme. Music is the … [Read more...]

A top ten list to celebrate a decade of Q

Ten years ago I became a mum and our little family was made. He made a dramatic entrance into the world, that's for sure, always impatient for the next thing, my boy. He was honestly the smallest person I'd ever seen. I remember seeing him for the very first time in his incubator (after our initial, drug hazed first meeting hours after he was born) and crying because I didn't know what all of the … [Read more...]

Road-trip essentials for painless family travel

There is nothing like an epic family road trip to bring everyone together. Spending hours, or even days, together in a vehicle may not be everyone's idea of fun, but in our family, it is one of our favourite ways to travel. My husband and I have road-tripped together as long as we've been married, and my family did when I was growing up. I guess you could say it's in my blood. Years and years of … [Read more...]

We Day 2017 interviews, messages and adventures- Q’s views

Hi everyone, this is Q. I went to We Day last week with my mum and it was really fun. I’m going to tell you all about We Day and the experiences we had. We had to wake up really early, at 0600 hours, because we had to catch the train to Vancouver. That’s where We Day was. Once we got to Vancouver, it was pouring and we needed to catch a cab to Rogers Stadium and that took a while. The cab driver … [Read more...]

6 reasons Disney Cruising is an ideal family holiday 

Q, my mom and I recently took a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise with Disney Cruiselines. I had never cruised before, but my mom had been on a number of cruises over the years, but never with Disney.  As I shared last week, I had a number of misgivings about family cruising, but every single one of them was completely unfounded, and it turned out to be an absolutely perfect vacation for … [Read more...]

Should you cruise with kids? Absolutely!!!

When you hear about avid cruisers, who do you picture? I know personally, I used to think of cruising as more of either a college students party kind of vacation, or something that retired people do. I didn't know of too many people my age with kids who had really embraced the cruising lifestyle, or so I thought.  Q, however, had become completely enamoured with the idea of cruising after … [Read more...]

Our trip to Universal Studios – Q’s views

Hi guys, this is Q, and in my last post about Gatorland, I promised that I'd tell you all about our trip to Universal Studios, that that is what I'm going to talk about today. So I hope you guys will like it. Today, when we woke up, Mom told me that we were going to Universal Studios today. I was so excited, so I couldn't wait to go. We went at 9:00 in the morning, and on the way there, we got … [Read more...]
