Farewell IRONMAN

By Friday, July 3, 2015 0 Permalink 0

I made it. This weekend is Dylan's IRONMAN 70.3 (see how technical I'm getting). I feel like I am ready to do the race too. I've been waiting for this weekend for a long time. I wrote about how full of shit   amazing the journey has been here, here and here. A trainee needs a good trainer. ...

New Summer Resolutions

By Thursday, July 2, 2015 0 Permalink 0

I've realized I approach summers with the kids like a New Year's resolution. Every year, as it creeps closer to the end of school I begin to visualize our perfect summer. I imagine me doing all the right things with the kiddles; giving them an exciting summer where I keep my shit together and they reciprocate. The kind of ...

Birthday Dance Surprise.

Dylan surprised me for my birthday and it wasn't with  a trip to Cheekatowga. We went to NYC and I had a private dance and toning session with Nicole Winhoffer. I was flabbergasted-I actually started to cry, luckily I wasn't in the studio yet. In order to elevate  "my craft", I had to be in top ...

Meg and I both love rhubarb, we were lucky this past week and scored a ton from a friend's farm. This cake was super easy to make and delicious. Recipe from karisann.com. We still have a bunch left, I think we are going to try this next: Roasted Halibut with rhubarb-bacon jam, image and recipe via Chatelaine. Enjoy your weekend. ...

Your Vagina needs a Physiotherapist

Were you aware of that? A few years ago we were at a function and met a lovely woman who introduced herself as a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist. Leigh and I being particularly bright, replied "oh, like vagina physio?"  What we went on to learn that night has stayed with us for years: It turns out involuntarily peeing your pants ...

A Birthday Surprise

Dylan announced that he had a surprise for me this week-a birthday surprise. He asked if I had a valid passport. "Of course" was my response, I'm always ready to fly. I assumed we were going to Paris for the weekend, he said no. "It is just for one night." I'm trying to figure out how ...

Almost Forty

I turned 39 last week. Looking at the photo above, you would have thought I passed that milestone years ago. Those are not my three children, in fact they are my siblings. Meg could take some of my eyebrows and we would still have enough to go around. The only reason I got a little ...

Eyebrow Rebirth

I decided a few months ago I needed to give my eyebrows a new look. There was nothing particularly wrong with my old brows, I just felt they lacked personality. The picture below is from the 7 year itch party last August when my brows and I were just coasting: They were too thin. Recently I read that full ...

The Ideal Father’s Day

By Monday, June 15, 2015 0 Permalink 0

This weekend marks that special time of year when we celebrate the dads in our lives. We felt it was incumbent upon us to lay out the "ideal" Father's day. More than anything on Father's Day, we want all dads to know how much we appreciate them. To simplify things, we have included step-by-step instructions on how to ...

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

By Friday, June 12, 2015 0 Permalink 0

Strawberries and rhubarb are my favourite combination; the tartness of the rhubarb is perfectly off-set by the sweetness of the berries. I make rhubarb everything, but the headliner is a classic. A simple, delicious crisp is so fucking good. It must be eaten warm with ice cream and whip cream. Then it should be eaten straight from ...
