Arya’s My Little Pony Birthday Party

My littlest girl turned two! To watch her develop greater independence, form sentences, bloom into her own little self has been one of the most rewarding experiences as a mom. To celebrate her second birthday, we booked the Yaletown Roundhouse Community Centre. I always wanted to book a community centre party because not only are…

Mackenzie’s Paw Patrol Birthday Party

Paw Patrol! Paw Patrol! Be there on a double! Is this song running on repeat in your head too? If so, then join the club! We recently hosted Mackenzie’s 4th Birthday Party. This was a tricky one. As we are in the process of building our home, we didn’t have a venue nor a lot of…

DIY Easter Bunny Headband

Spring break was good to us. We played, napped, and I had the time to experiment with new dinner ideas. More importantly, I mustered up the creativity and time to create these adorable bunny Easter headbands. The best part of this was that everything was from the dollar store. Honestly I saw many of these like-minded…

Valentine Printables for Preschoolers

Since M started school, I’ve been getting my gears ready for Valentine day gift ideas. There are SO many great ideas out there but it was hard to find ideas that appeased the 2.5-6 age group, with a mix of boys and girls, as well as a no sugar policy. Getting M to help assemble…

MOO I’m Two Birthday Party!

I can’t believe my girl is two years old. It felt as if we just welcomed her to the world not long ago. For my girl’s first birthday, we celebrated with a “Onederland” theme, a play on Alice in Wonderland (which I hope one day I’ll have time to post my pictures).  This year, I debated over…

Superbowl Football Cupcakes

Since entering my second trimester, I have been getting more energy to bake (thank goodness). Understanding that we would probably be busy with our wee one in a few months, my hubby and I threw a Superbowl party. Of course, no parties ever go without cupcakes, so I made Superbowl football cupcakes. I didn’t have…

Baby Shower Cupcakes – Owl & Big Bear

I spent my sunny Saturday afternoon running around to bake shops and craft stores to find the perfect tools for my next baking project. It was a 12 hour ordeal – no joke. I was home by midnight, and my night of bliss finally started. It was me, itunes and my chocolate cupcakes. When one…

Perfect Macarons Recipe

I never entertained myself with the idea of making such delicate pastries like macarons, until one of my good friends offered up his home made macarons to me. He told me if you have the right technique, they are quite easy to make. That was lie #1. I thought, I have baked all my life from lemon…

Ready to POP Popcorn Cupcakes (with Free Printables)

My BFF was in her 9th month when I planned her baby shower (risky I know!), so I thought it was only fitting to throw her a “ready to pop” themed shower. Popcorn was my inspiration and I decided to centre the entire theme around this. Who doesn’t love popcorn? Actually, who doesn’t love cupcakes?…

HOW TO: Elmo and Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Growing up, I was never a fan of Sesame Street. I always found it boring, however, the thought of missing a Mr. Dressup episode was unfathomable. I was glued to the TV whenever he would start with his arts and crafts segment. Oh the things you can do with glitter and paper! It definitely set…
