Thankful Thursday week 1

It’s already November, what?! It seems like this year has gone by quicker than usual. I’m afraid I’ll blink and it will be Christmas! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.The Month of November I typically like to post weekly about the little things I have to be thankful for, just as a reminder that the little things are the important things. 

This week has been nuts. I woke up Wednesday and was dizzy and nauseous. My husband told me to go lay down and he took care of everything. The kids. The house. Everything.  While I know that’s part of being a parent, I’m still beyond grateful for him on days like this.  Because of him I got to rest and recuperate and now I’m feeling 96% better.  Bonus? He is also dad-soloing this Saturday while I’m out of town. 

Happy World Breastfeeding Week

Happy World Breastfeeding Week! Today I’m pulling an entry from last year’s
archives.

World Breastfeeding week is a time where moms get to talk about their struggles and their own breastfeeding journey.  It can be a week where breastfeeding moms get to feel pride in all they’ve overcome and achieved. Often times breastfeeding moms feel they need to hide, especially after they’ve hit the 12 month mark. So it’s really nice to see breastfeeding in a positive light.

Sometimes WBW comes across as breastfeeding moms trying to ‘prove’ they’re better. Sometimes some breastfeeding moms use this week to shame those who are formula feeding.
Many formula feeding moms feel this week may be an attack on them personally.

None of that is what this week is about.

Review: Grammarly

Please note, I am an affiliate for Grammarly via ShareASale, I may get a small commission for sign ups/purchases from this post. I also received one month of premium Grammarly in order to review it. This does not influence my honest opinion  of the app/site

I recently learned about a site called “Share a Sale”, a place that connects bloggers, like me, with merchants looking to advertise. Bloggers make a small commission based on sales (and sometimes sign ups or clicks) and merchants get their name out there. Win/Win, right?

As I was scrolling through the merchants I saw that one of my favourite chrome add-ons, Grammarly, was looking for bloggers so I jumped at the chance to apply. Imagine how happy I was when I got the ‘accepted’ email! I’ve been using Grammarly for a while so I knew what they had to offer people and could get behind their services.

Music Monday: Totally 90s

This past weekend we had our annual Rock The Park in my city.
Rock the park is a 4-day music fest held in a local public park. This year’s line up was pretty great, but the one that got everyone talking was the I Love The 90s fest that was held Friday night.  With groups like Colour Me Badd, All 4 One, and Salt & Pepa it was a 90’s teen’s dream come true. I didn’t get a chance to go because it was sold out almost instantly, but quite a few of my facebook friends went, so I lived vicariously through their pictures and the snippets of videos posted. The show looked like an incredible walk down memory lane, so I decided that Music Monday this week would be something featuring some amazing hits from the 90’s.

What are your favourite hits from the 90s? 
Which songs bring back memories from your teen years?
