No Party Birthday Party

No Party Birthday

Birthday’s are a day to celebrate. We have prepared a themed party each year since her 1st birthday. I love to make it special for my daughter, however, I never planned to have a party every year. My plan was just to celebrate the important birthdays. This year we are having a no party birthday party. My daughter’s 6th Birthday is coming up in a few weeks. This year we decided not to have a birthday party this year. We are still celebrating with cake and presents, but there will be … Continue reading

Play Learn Read on Ooka Island #RaiseAReader

Play Learn Read - Adventures on Ooka Island

I don’t remember when I began reading, I do remember always having books to read. When I was given books for birthdays and Christmas I would dive into the new book. Some nights I would stay up later than usual so I could finish and move to the next book in the series. I want my daughter to have the same love of reading that I have and had growing up. We have been buying books for our daughter since she was a baby and love for us to read her … Continue reading

Barefoot Sandals – DIY Beading Project

Barefoot Sandals

I am not a shoe person, I prefer bare feet. The only time I really wear shoes is when I have to go out.

I recently started making bracelets with beads I was given as a gift. Years ago I had an anklet, it was similar to the Barefoot sandals but I only had one. So I created my own, … Continue reading

There will be Twitter chats and mini … Continue reading

Blueberry Bundt Cake

Blueberry Bundt Cake

I have had a bundt cake pan for some time now and haven’t used it yet. I decided that I had to do something about that.  I went into the kitchen and routed through the fridge and cupboards to see what I could come up with. I decided on a blueberry bundt cake. I always have blueberries, it’s our favourite fruit. I always try to make something we will all eat. My daughter is picky but she loves blueberries and cake and of course likes to help this Mama Bear bake. … Continue reading
