I Ate My Way Through Disneyland and Didn’t Gain an Ounce

With the holiday season in full swing at the happiest place on Earth, I knew there would be all kinds of mouth-watering festive offerings. I fully planned to ditch the diet and enjoy every last bite.
As you’re about to see, it was quite the tasty adventure. In fact, I ate my way through Disneyland and didn’t gain an ounce.
Here’s the foodie highlight reel of our Disneyland vacation.

Thanks to a Facebook group dubbed ‘Langley Moms,’ one can instantaneously share their trials and triumphs of motherhood, and lean on fellow women who are also deep in the parenting trenches of diaper duty and toddler meltdowns, with just the click of a mou

Be Careful What You Pass Along

While I still struggle to appreciate the reflection staring back at me in the mirror, today I am at peace with my body. Maybe not 100 per cent, but I do appreciate the remarkable journey it has taken me on, including my two pregnancies. However, that hasn’t always been the case — a fact that scares me as a parent.

Do Your Kids See Ghosts?

Kids say the darnedest things, but also the creepiest.

My sweet oldest bambina, Molly, gave me the chills for the first time when she was just two-years-old. I still remember it like it was yesterday.

We’re so excited you decided to pop by and learn all about us.

In addition to being a lifestyle blogger, I have a parenting column called Pink Laundry that runs, monthly, in various Black Press community newspapers throughout the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver area.

Pink Laundry is all about airing my perspective on parenthood, marriage and ‘adulting’ — the  good, bad and the messy.

Our estrogen-dominated household is filled with endless heaps of pink laundry in every nook and cranny, tantrums and tears, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Besides, it all makes great fodder for my column!

From tackling the touch subject of explaining death to a toddler, trying my best not to pass on any body image issues to my daughters and the dreaded D-word (divorce), there’s no subject off limits for this Valley Mom.
