Back to School with Sears $100 Gift Card Giveaway #BTS #RockTheHalls

This back to school season, we’re getting ready for a big change! Teagan will be starting all day preschool this September, and for the first time in her life, she’ll be spending a major chunk of her day with somebody else. We’ve been preparing her for this exciting transition all summer, and we’ve started moving her bedtime earlier bit by bit in preparation for back to school. Of course, back to school also means new supplies and new clothes too (because she seems to have grown an inch and a half this summer!).

Sears Canada is the place to get your kid’s back to school clothes this year so they can Rock the Halls! Sears always has great sales going on, and you can earn Sears Club Points on every purchase. Teagan loves the quality, comfy clothes, especially the adorable My Little Pony and Hello Kitty licensed clothing, and I love their reasonable prices and KidVantage Lifetime Wear Out Warranty. If an item of clothing or a pair of shoes wears out and a child in your family continues to wear that size, Sears will repair or replace it!

Fig Balsamic Marinated Steak with Goat Cheese Sauce #Recipe

I just realized it’s been almost a month since I’ve posted a recipe! Truth to tell, I’ve been spending more time hanging out with my family and enjoying the summer instead, but now that our fig tree is dropping fruit left, right, and centre, I decided to share a meal with you that celebrates the harvest of sun ripened Adriatic figs from my backyard.

Teagan loves heading out into the backyard to pick fruit with me or hubs. We’ve been working our way up the tree the past couple of weeks, so now Teagan’s job is to hold the bowl while one of us climbs the stepladder to pick the plump fruit way up at the top. There’s just something so wholesome and deep down satisfying about eating something grown in your own garden, you know?

Celebrating Keira’s Birthday with My Little Pony Trixie Lulamoon

Keira's 2nd birthday celebration banner 2

We are a long time Build-A-Bear family. Hubs and I both have Build-A-Bears that we gave each other when we first started dating. Teagan sleeps with her best friend Rainbow Bear and her Disney Princess Palace Pet Treasure the coral kitten. Poor Keira was the only one without a special Build-A-Bear buddy. Knowing this, our friends at Build-A-Bear Workshop sent us a special surprise just in time for Keira’s second birthday.

When I pulled out that familiar house-shaped cardboard box, Keira knew there was something special tucked away in there. She eagerly opened up the box, and look how excited she was to find her very own Build-A-Bear friend in there!

5 Reasons to Visit Splashdown Park in #Tsawwassen, BC #SplashdownBC

Last week I had the opportunity to join my local YVR Bloggers group at Splashdown Park in Tsawwassen, BC. Opened in 1983, Splashdown Park was the coolest place to go when I was a kid. I remember visiting the park a couple of times as part of a summer day camp, and both times went down in history as the best field trips ever! Neither hubs nor the kids had ever been to the water slides before, so I was really excited to introduce my family to Splashdown for the first time.
