It's time to start writing about life with twins.
Tuesday was my first day home alone with the boys, who are now 3 weeks old. And it was a long one. And a lonely one. No scrap that, it wasn't lonely, because I can happily noozle my little boys all day long and not feel lonely. But it was an isolated one, I...

A big announcement! Finally!
So like I said, I've been keeping a secret . Well really, Kevin and I have been keeping a secret. Since November 6th to be exact. Because that's the Friday we found out I was pregnant! And although it was a big surprise for us, it was one we were thrilled a...

9 Reasons I got my flu shot today.
Now that we have frost on the ground in the morning, I'd say it's just about cold and flu season. And so this year I went and got my flu shot. Here's 9 good reasons why I got my flu shot today. 1) It was free, and I could get it right outside the doors of m...

How to steam block acrylic knits.
I have to say it. I'm a sucker for exciting acrylic yarns. You know the ones you see at Walmart or Micheals, that either have a unique texture, or fabulous colours. And you can still buy a whole project's worth for less than $20. But sometimes, the finished...

I'm bad at posting every day... I blame Kevin.
Crap! I was supposed to have been writing blog posts every day this month. Then I went to Medicine Hat on Thursday for the weekend to visit Kevin, and suddenly, no more posts. Totally all his fault. Or maybe it's because I usually write posts when I'm bored...
