Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces Coming to DVD May 26

Remember watching Looney Tunes cartoons every Saturday morning? My favourites were always the World of Tomorrow cartoons by Tex Avery and the musical ones, so I was pretty excited when I saw that Warner Brothers would be releasing this carefully curated collection of all the best Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces on May 26. I couldn’t wait to share these classics with my little ones.

More Peanut Butter Snack Bites, Please! #MyKPBsnackbite

Last month I shared my ChocoCoco Peanut Butter Snack Bites recipe with you. We had such a fun afternoon mixing, rolling, and especially eating our snack bites, the girls have been asking over and over when we’re going to do it again.

Paleo Strawberry Pear Crumble #Recipe

Love this grain-free paleo strawberry pear crumble from This West Coast Mommy. Perfect for summer!

Some big changes in our home this week! Grandma moved out of our basement and into her own place (still nearby thankfully). It’s going to be a big adjustment not having her around so much, and of course the kids are especially sad to see Grandma go. They do get their playroom back though, and that seemed to take a little bit of the sting out of it, for now at least. They really loved visiting Grandma’s new house over the weekend, and they can’t wait to have a sleepover. (To be honest, neither can I!)

Omaïki Ö Sleep Bamboo Fitted Cloth Diaper and One Size Cover Review and #Giveaway

Win an Omaïki Ö Sleep bamboo fitted cloth diaper (US/CAN, 5/25)

Welcome to the 2nd annual Cuckoo for Cloth giveaway event, hosted by Zephyr Hill Blog and ConservaMom. Come visit lots of different cloth diapering bloggers and enter to win some wonderful prizes! The grand prize package is worth over $150 and includes items from Funky Fluff, GroVia, Wink Diapers, Margaux & May, Zookaboo and Geffen Baby!

Lately I’ve been getting more interested in fitted diapers. As Keira approaches potty training, I’m starting to shift my focus to nighttime diapering. I love fitted diapers for overnights because the entire diaper absorbs, making it a great solution for keeping baby comfortable and leak-free all night. Last summer I gave a very positive review of the Omaïki 3.Ö Hybrid diaper, so I was looking forward to trying Omaïki’s fitted diaper option. Omaïki recently updated their fitted diaper with cute flannel prints and extra absorbency. I’ve partnered again with Canadian online natural mom, baby, and family boutique Gentle Nest to bring you this review (and a giveaway!) of Omaïki’s new Ö Sleep Bamboo Fitted Diaper.

Got an Itchy Pet? See Your Vet! {Plus a $100 Visa Giveaway}

If April showers bring May flowers, then what do May flowers bring?

If you said ALLERGIES, you have my sympathy. Yes, it’s that time of year again, when many of us are constantly sneezing and battling a runny nose and itchy, watery eyes. But did you know that dogs can suffer from allergies too? In fact, dogs are allergic to many of the same things that we are, like mould, detergents, perfume, dust mites, and seasonal pollen from trees, grass, and weeds.

What's causing your dog to itch? #ItchyPetSeeYourVet

27 Gluten-Free Strawberry Recipes for Strawberry Month

27 Delicious and Gluten-free Strawberry Recipes for Strawberry Month!

May is Strawberry Month! There’s really nothing better than popping a handful of sun warmed, luscious, and perfectly ripe strawberries in your mouth. They’re the first fruit to ripen in the spring and an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, manganese, and iodine. Interesting fact: did you know that strawberries are a member of the rose family?

In honour of Strawberry Month, I’ve collected 26 delicious (and gluten-free) strawberry recipes from some of my favourite bloggers to share with you. The best strawberries, local and vine-ripened, aren’t available here in BC until next month, but that just gives me time to plan my visit to the local strawberry patch and decide which of these tempting recipes to make first.

Something for Every Book-Loving Mom!

I’m that mom with precariously stacked piles of books on the bedside table and bookshelves stuffed to bursting. I usually have two or sometimes three fiction books going on at any one time, and I love displaying beautiful hardcover reference books on the coffee table for visitors to leaf through. I’m a firm believer in books as a gift for any occasion, including Mother’s Day of course!

DK Books recently asked me to choose a couple of titles from their Mother’s Day Boutique to share with you. What’s Mom into? Home and garden? Crafts? Is she a foodie? How about a little history? DK has the best selection of reference books – there’s something here for any mom!
