If anyone’s keeping tabs, we’re currently on day six on this stomach bug in our house, and the puking mammal count is currently four... mammal you guys, because our DOG threw up today 🤦🏼♀️😂 I can’t make this stuff up.
So, it seemed like possibly the perfect time to share a little video with you - one where I tell you about the foolproof hack we use to turn any bad day around. It works on ANY bad day, guys. Even the ones where you’re scrubbing dog vomit out of a white carpet with a screaming baby strapped to your back (or you know... so I’ve heard😂)
Post is up on the blog, and we’ve linked directly to our YouTube channel in our bio ❤️
Sharing some photos from our vacation last week. This was the first week Shane and I have ever had off together, and I think the first week he's taken off in years. We didn't do anything crazy, but we did get to spend the entire week together, which was perfect. We relaxed, we had every meal together, we wandered, we read stories, and we sat by the fireplace. .
And Bettie and I matched 😉 (#twinning doesn't take a vacation)
. ❤️Also, our dresses are from @pineappleclothing_com (@pineapplemoms.team) and if anyone is interested in shopping from there, I'll provide you a code for a discount!
#WellnessWednesday . Raise your hand if in the past you’ve set a New Years Resolution to start exercising 🙋🏼♀️. Were you able to stick to it? @bodycotoronto and @j_fortuna have some tips for starting a pre-holiday program now to set you up for success in the new year.
1️⃣ Figure out what motivates YOU – This is probably the hardest and most important element of this exercise.
2️⃣ Figure out what you WANT TO DO – let’s face it, not everyone is cut out for the gym
3️⃣ Set REASONABLE goals.
4️⃣ Write it into your schedule – Putting your exercise routine into your scheduler will hold you accountable. •
5️⃣ Incorporate exercise into your family time
6️⃣ Get out of your own way! – Don’t self-sabotage.

S A O R : a vigorous workout for your body and soul. ✨
- - -
Start in a regular plank.
Shoulders over your fingers.
Pull your belly in and up to the sky.
Take a few deep breaths,
welcome whatever comes up.
Be present with it.
Feel your body and all the sensations engaged through discomfort.
You have arrived. ✨

Join us tonight at 8:15 pm for a new way to move and experience an emotional release.
Yes we’re at the arena again. ⛸
Gonna have to rethink some life choices, for example why do I sign the kids up for activities where I have to freeze?
Also how cute is my Timmie’s twinsie? 😍 #momlife#rinkrat
Kids mild Italian sausage on mashed potatoes, with sautéed sweet peppers and onions.
15 minutes from frozen, in a pot of simmering water.
Give your kids something they want, without sacrificing any of the time with them, that you want. 👌🏼👩👧👦

7 months today! 🙌 I think the hardest part about taking these photos every month is choosing which to post. I mean I try to pick only one but it’s actually impossible. Any one else go through this? Just me? ... 🦗
The holidays are coming and we all want to give, right? We want to give something amazing, something they’ll want, that’s useful, that’s good for them. And and and, we want to get it done quickly before the rush of the holidays seems to creep up on us...because it seems to do it every year. ⠀
So, if you or someone you know is looking to improve their health, lose some weight, get better nutrition, heck, ALL OF THE ABOVE, and be better this holiday season and in the new year, i can connect you with programs and products that are on promo all month. And I can pretty much GUARANTEE that this will help for sure. Yes, I said FOR SURE. ⠀
What do you have to lose? Unless you’re planning to keep that extra weight to hold you back, that dream of “one day...” instead of making it today, that bad eating habit instead of making a good food choice, that complacency instead of action, you’re missing out on an amazing deal, for you and/or for others. Heck, do it together.⠀
I’m here for you and I know you want to be your at your best health, so DM me...⠀
The @ooak_toronto started an awesome social media challenge on Monday! I’m definitely late and I’m not sure if I will keep up. I’m definitely short on time and working endlessly to make sure I get all the little details sorted out before move in, next week! But make sure to follow all the amazing makers who will be posting their daily #ooakdiaries
So few of us have ever been taught how to communicate properly to our loved ones. To get across our needs, upsets and complaints in a safe, constructive way. To deeply listen and feel deeply heard.
And yet this is all most of us really want.
It’s something that I’ve been exploring a lot recently for myself and in my coaching work, and the more I do so, the more fundamental I see it to be. It sometimes means going right back to basics and re-learning how to have simple conversations - but I’m finding the benefits of doing so are often huge and v immediately apparent.

— like magic straight to my heart.
You collect the bounty that’s wild.
You put it all together closed tightly in your palm— you show me love; in a collection.
In beautiful pieces pulled from Mother Earth.
Enriching my heart.
Feeding my soul.
It’s an everyday for you.
But for me, I feel honoured— I feel special every time a flower is picked and given to me— from your wild heart to mine. . .
➕This is my family 🐻🐻🐻🐻and families are awesome! And I think the coolest things about families are they are ALL so different. Here are 3 things that makes us our own little family & I'd ❤️ to know what you love about yours!
1️⃣My little family is obsessed with Christmas🎄we're a super musical family and 102.5 Christmas all-day every-day has been on for at least a few weeks 😬Everyone sings, everyone dances, some of us play musical instruments (not me, I "fake played" the clarinet in public school band) and we ALWAYS have music playing in the house!
2️⃣One of our fave things to do in the summer or fall is work outside! No matter the task we're raking or building a shed, or planting in the gardens. Neither of my girls like getting dirty but I'm working on that 🎨
3️⃣I don't cook, but when I do most of us regret it. My husband is the chef extraordinaire in our family and makes a mean egg 🍳 smoked salmon + avocado 🥑 breakfast at least once a weekend. The girls always say "Daddy, you're the best cook, can you always cook for us so mommy doesn't have to?" 🤣
Our daughter just got over her first cold, which forced us to stock up on a few essentials. If you are looking for a few basics to keep around for your baby, here’s what we recommend! (1) Vick’s Babyrub - the baby version of their vaporub. This definitely soothed Willow when she was constantly coughing. Works just like vaporub, and is good for infants 3+ months old. (2) Cocyntal Colic Drops. We loved these especially when Willow was a newborn. Sometimes she would cry (and clearly be in discomfort) despite having had a bottle, a new diaper, and a nap recently. One of the parenting books I read recommended always giving gas drops to newborns when they have a bottle to help break up the gas bubbles - and I can say that this definitely helped Willow when she had an upset stomach. (3) Braun thermometer - a definite must have so you can monitor fevers when your little one is sick! We got the kind that measures the temperature in the ear, which can sometimes be tricky when Willow is wiggling around (almost all the time!), but it’s very effective in measuring her temperature. (4) Infants Tylenol - We actually ended up getting a couple boxes of this and keeping one in the diaper bag, one in the medicine cabinet. That way we will always have it on hand when those teething pains hit. It’s also good to have an extra box around in case we can’t find the first one - which happened not so long ago. Nobody likes those late night runs to the store. (5) Vasoline - we got this back in the spring before Willow was born, but hardly used it before fall started. When the heat in our building turned on, Willow’s lips became so dry and cracked! ☹️ We are putting this on her nonstop now!

These two mamas, friends and colleagues formed C&S in November 2017. [Happy 1 year Anniversary🎆🎉] They still work together at their full-time jobs and manage C&S during their free time; and amazingly aren't even remotely sick of each other even after spending all this time together!!🙌👏 Their favourite foods are anything seafood and sushi (or was it wine)? 😂 They love Aruba for its beaches and have a desire to visit Croatia.
Drop by their table, say hi and check out all the cute stuff for sale. There will be so many products, we can't wait to check it out ourselves. 😊🛍 #vendor#momsandminisevent#momsandminis#crimzonandscarlet
