Go Frost Yourself Edible Images: Bringing Cake Dreams to Life

Go Frost Yourself Edible Images

Helping You to Create the Right Cake Every Time

Happy Birthday Hayden

My “baby” tends to have odd requests when it comes to his birthday cake. When he was turning 3, he wanted a cake that was “black and blue with cats all over.” I am not a baker, and I am definitely NOT a cake decorator so I was left scrambling trying to figure out HOW the heck I was going to be able to pull that off.  I’m very thankful that I discovered a Canadian business called Go Frost Yourself Edible Images.

March Break “Field-Trips” – Family Friendly Spring Break Ideas

March Break Field-Trips

March Break March Break is coming, and breaks are always difficult around here as the kids get bored super easy. With only two weeks of school left before their break, I decided to start planning some affordable activities (what they call “field-trips”).  We will of course visit the various neighbourhood parks, but that is all dependent on the weather. March in Calgary normally means snow, rain, or both.

My Reverse Bucket List: The Top 10 Things I Will Never Do

The Top 10 Things I Will Never Do

A Reverse Bucket List

reverse bucket list

I am not an adventurous person. Those who know me would never say my name and adventure in the same sentence (or conversation for that matter).  Some might say I’m quite boring.  I always pick the safe route, the risk-free route, the quiet route. I have never really gone anywhere, and I’ve never been outside of Canada before. I’m happiest being at home, and although there are a few places in the world I have always wanted to travel, I’ve never wanted to do anything dangerous or dare-devilish. Exciting to me is a good old fashioned rock concert, or a day at the Calgary Stampede with the kids.  Some people have a Bucket List of exciting things they want to do before they die, but I have Reverse Bucket List of exciting things that I NEVER want to do!

myfunvelope: Fun & Crafts to Keep the Boredom Away


I am always trying to find things that will keep my kids occupied and OFF of their tablets. We have a wide selection of toys and games, and I try to make sure their craft shelves are full of paper and crayons. The boys love to do crafts, but I am not very “crafty” so I try to find reasonably priced craft kits that they can do either on their own or with minimal help.

3DLight FX 3D Night Light – Comforting Cordless & Fun

Paw Patrol – Chase – 3D Night Light

Chase is on the case, making bed time easier!

3DLight FX Paw patrol

Lately my youngest son has started waking up several times in the middle of the night with bad dreams. The cats will startle him, or he will hear a noise, and he ends up getting scared. Most times, when he wakes up like this, its almost impossible to get him to go back to sleep in his own bed. Unlike his brothers, there is no where in his space to plug a night light into the wall to provide him with some comforting light for those times when he does happen to wake up. After much searching, I found a product that I believe is the perfect answer. A 3D Night Light by 3DLight FX.
