Mary Lambert “Heart on My Sleeve” album review

I am one of those people who needs music in my life. I work best when I have music around me and am always on the hunt for new songs. Every once in a while, I find an album or an artist that really speaks to me, songs that make me feel, or laugh, or cry. Songs I want to listen to over and over again, ones that get stuck in my head. I recently had the opportunity to hear the new album "Heart on … [Read more...]

Workout Wednesday – lets get saucy!

Welcome back to Workout Wednesday. My apologies for missing the last couple of weeks, but I just wasn't able to get my act together with the winter plague wreaking havoc in my house. I hope that your workout shave been going well, and that perhaps you've found a new song or two or a new move to add into your routine. This week, instead of telling you how I'd do the song, I think I will give you a … [Read more...]

Breaking down the traditional family? Explain…

I was scrolling through Facebook this afternoon when I came upon the most disturbing post I have seen in a long time. No, I'm not talking about those sick kids or injured/dying animal posts that people for some reason like to share. No, it wasn't some cock-a-mamie "health" claim that you should be drinking poisonous substances (really, actual caustic, poisonous eat your insides substances)to cure … [Read more...]

Welcome to Workout Wednesday!

Welcome to Workout Wednesday! What is Workout Wednesday, you ask? Well, allow me to explain... You may not know this about me, but one of the most fun jobs I've ever done was teaching dance fitness classes. I was first introduced to it a few years ago, when it was being run as a regular drop-in class at the studio I attended and after the first time, I was hooked. A few months later, an … [Read more...]

Seeing P!nk

Recently, I went to a concert with a group of girlfriends that we had literally been waiting months for. Back in the spring, when I heard that P!nk would be coming to Vancouver, I knew I had to go. I immediately sent a text to my friend and asked her if she wanted to join me. She said yes, and when I saw that another friend was asking if anyone wanted to get a group together to go, I jumped on … [Read more...]

10 Musical Memories

After completely missing the Monday Listicles boat last week, I am back, and this week Cassie asked us to do a list of 10 songs.  As you all know, I LOVE music, and it plays a huge role in my life.  Not only that, as I am sure I've mentioned before, it is also big in my husband and son's lives, which makes me happy. Because music is so important, and there are SO many songs that hold memories … [Read more...]

Connections

Sometimes I watch him as he sleeps. This big-little boy of mine, this boy who, with every day that goes by gets smarter and stronger, more clever and fiercely independent. At bedtime, every night since he was born, we have had cuddles before he goes into his bed. When he was nursing, it was always his milk, then cuddles, his little body laying on the body pillow between my knees. When he was … [Read more...]
