Teaching your kids to become involved in their community is rewarding, both emotionally and physically. It not only helps to build character but benefits the organization you choose to aid. Social responsibility doesn’t happen over night though, there are a few steps you can take to ensure your whole family is making the most of the time and energy they have to give.
If you’re on Facebook, you’ve undoubtedly seen the ads for Dollar Shave Club. They offer a no-nonsense, gender neutral way to save on shaving. It’s a sad truth that the beauty marketplace has us believing women need pink razors and men need blue. And the cost for a decent razor is astronomical! Anyways, I kept seeing the ads in my newsfeed, and while I’m not really on the subscription-box-bandwagon yet, I thought these guys might just be onto something. A months supply of blades, delivered to your door every month, for a fair price. I decided to try them out, and let you guys know if the low cost reflects the quality of the product.

My kids were born 11 1/2 months apart, which mean we have 2 birthdays back to back each year. I usually do a group party for them and all their friends, but this year I wanted to try something different. In lieu of a party, I offered them a trip to Toronto, where we would visit 2 attractions and hang out with their super-cool Great Aunt. The obvious choice for them was Toronto, since they had never been. I was born there, and spent many summers, but I had not yet braved the 4hr drive down south with them yet. We decided on LEGOLAND® Discovery Center (in Vaughn) as one of our attractions, so I was tickled when they agreed to let me do an honest review in exchange for our tickets. I had no idea what to expect, as it was also my first time there, but I can confidently say, we will DEFINITELY be going back. Here is our experience!
Did you know 1 in 6 Ontario children experience hunger? What if I told you, you could make a difference with $2?
I had this awesome recipe picked out for this week and then chaos struck. On Wednesday my golden retriever Henry caught me off guard and pulled me flat on my back. Slight concussion, whiplash in my neck and walking is incredibly challenging. On my road to recovery my eldest and my husband came down with Norwalk…….I know……I know…….this has been a very trying week both physically and mentally. I just went back to work on the 18th after 4 glorious uneventful weeks and BAM! Back to work 2 days and here comes the shit storm, literally LOL.
So needless to say I whipped this up Sunday afternoon, taking a much needed 5 minutes to myself, and didn’t have the energy to take more than 2 pictures. But I’m sure you can imagine the simplicity of this recipe. I like recipes that are versatile, quick and family friendly.
