Time Flies

Hey everyone! We can almost smell the weekend, just another day to go! Today marks 5 years since I graduated college. It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years. Some days it feels longer and other times, I feel like I just started. Looking back 5 years ago, I have this enormous amount of knowledge,…

Under The Tree

It’s the weekend folks and man does it look good. Got to sleep in today, till the lovely hour of 7am because we are creatures of habit. Today was a cold, brisk day. The wind was raw and your hair was flying everywhere. The bad news, it’s only going to get worse. So buckle up…

Out With The Old

Hello weekend! Weekends are definitely my favourite time. I decided after pondering the idea of getting a streaming device for a bit now to go out and purchase one today. I bought a Roku express from Best Buy. So you can just picture how my Saturday has been going… Netflix, munchies, couch, blanket and no…

A Day For Me

Happy Friday junior! Do you see that in the distance? That my friends in Friday, the best day of the week. I really need Friday to be here, but fast foreword to 4pm on Friday and then slow it down all weekend long. So yesterday was my birthday! Happy birthday to me! I turned the…

Here’s The Soup

Happy Cat-urday! I’m having a low key Saturday, I mean it’s after 3pm and I’m still in my pjs. I am also battling a sinus cold, so I have no plans to leave the apartment today. I was supposed to publish this blog a few days ago but sickness happened, so here it is. I…

Reasons To Be Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Hope you had a great weekend, whether you celebrated with family/friends or not. A long weekend is also a nice weekend! Although tomorrow we will think it’s Monday but it’s actually Tuesday. Thanksgiving is another day to celebrate all the people and things in life that we are thankful for. I am…

Adjusting

Happy Friday junior! The work week is almost over for many of us. The first part of the week seemed extra long. Yesterday I thought to myself, this is ONLY Wednesday? We also entered a new month this week. It’s officially my birthday month! Yahoo for that! I love this time of year for the…

Finding The One For Me

Hey everyone! Happy weekend. My weekend started off early to grab some delicious vegan treats from the Moncton Market. It was worth getting up at 6:45am on a Saturday. Other than that, I haven’t done much today. I have just relaxed. To be honest, I wasn’t looking forward to this weekend. I didn’t want to…

Thank you ❤️

Thank you from the bottom of my currently broken heart, for all the support over the last 24 hours. The last 24 hours has been tough. I have cried enough tears that I have no more left and now my nose has started to run instead of tears. I’m trying to adjust to the silence…

Sweet Oreo Girl

I have no words to express how I feel at the moment. My sweet Oreo girl has passed away today. I am absolutely devastated. I’m heartbroken that I didn’t get my final goodbye with her. We spent the morning together like we always do and off I went to work. My heart was with her…

Information Needed For Jeopardy

Ready to make your brain explode with (possibly) useless information? I now have another file folder in my brain titled “information you might need on Jeopardy“. This blog is about CASHEWS! Nuts eh? Well not so fast on the nuts, I have some information that will make you think otherwise. Here’s the facts: Cashews were…

It’s Been A Year

Exactly one year ago I finally decided to start something I had talked about it for a while before putting my idea on paper (in this case, page). I started my blog one year ago. I don’t know where the idea actually came from but I wanted a blog. I wanted a place where I…

Lingering Laundry

Happy Monday! Well I hope it was a happy Monday. I could have stayed in bed all day but duty calls. So adulting sucks sometimes, am I right? It’s something we all wished for. Get out of school and get a job. Well that’s like 10% of being an “adult”. This blog is about another…

Laborious Labor Day

Hello September! Yes we can all start to decorate for fall. I have already done so. I have also had the taste of my first pumpkin spice latte yesterday. Now I just need to wait till apple picking season is here and I will be all set. I drove back to Moncton yesterday. Typically Labor…

U-Hauling A lot Of Speed

Happy Monday folks! Well at least I think it’s Monday, maybe it’s not. Summer is coming to an end, which means we begin (another “s” word begins, no it’s not SNOW). The start of September brings me a lot of memories. It’s when I started to live in Moncton 6 years ago. Its when college,…

What Happens When You Wear Shorts In The Summer

How’s summer 2019 treating everyone? I hope you are getting out and enjoying the summer weather. There have been some mighty sweat all over your creases days this summer. It’s the type of day where you are just sitting and still sweating. This blog is dedicated to anyone who wears shorts in the summer. Like…

One Delicious Scoop

Name me two items that go together better than ice cream and hot summer days. I’ll wait until your ice cream has melted down your hand or made ice cream soup. Here’s what doesn’t go together well, intolerances and ice cream shops. Many local dairy bars do not carry vegan or dairy free ice cream….

Small Town Talk

Hey there! How’s this week treating ya? What’s up with the blog title? I see you rolling your eyes and muttering under your breath about small town-ness. That’s not this blog. There is something I have noticed about small towns (and I’m saying that as a generalization based on my hometown). Someone from another small…

The Issues With Bathing Suits

Happy weekend! I honestly have no clue what day it is anymore now that school is over, I just rely on my phone to tell me the day. Now that we are finally getting some hot summer weather, we need to discuss bathing suits. Maybe you call them swimsuits or bikinis, whatever you call them,…

Silos, construction and fromageries: PART 1

An Unwanted Guest

Happy Friday-junior! The days are dwindling down till summer vacation! There is only 11 school days left, we can do it. Today’s blog you will learn or maybe you already know this about me, but I HATE bugs. If it crawls, slithers, jumps I don’t want it around me. This morning I had a little…

Fed Up Friday

Hello again! It’s Friday! The day we never thought would come. These 4 day work weeks seems like 40 day work weeks. What’s up with that?! Moving on, a raise of hands of who’s fed up? You can be fed up with anything. Fed up with your job? Your laundry? How about the price of…

Messaging The Wrong Person

Thanks for coming back to my blog. I have a short, funny and awkward story that happened today. In the past month my mom has found out what Facebook Marketplace is. So I have made various trips around the city to pick up items. Today she messaged me about an item to pick up after…

Slacker or Skilled?

Hello long weekend! I just got back from an overnight trip to Halifax with my wife. It was a very successful trip. We travelled many miles to find awesome deals. I hope your long weekend (if you have one) is treating you good. This blog topic has been floating in my mind for about a…

The Best Supper

  Hello folks near and far! It’s Tuesday and you know what that means? Its taco Tuesday, even though I did not participate in taco Tuesday. As I was cooking my supper (which is what my blog is about), I looked out the window and seen something horrible. I had to look twice and then…

Thank You Mom

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, godmothers, aunts, future moms, step-moms, pet moms, etc. You are the real rockstars out there. I was lucky enough to spend Mother’s Day with my dear momma this year. She came down and my brother and his little family came up for the weekend. I have shared…

My Thoughts At The Movies

Hey everyone! How about that nice weather? Well maybe not yesterday, but before that we actually got a glimpse of warmer weather WITHOUT wearing a parka. I have still seen one extreme to the other in people’s fashion choices. As soon as the sun is out and about 15C people either dig out the shorts…

Sick Of Work Or Too Sick To Work?

Hello Friday, good to see you. Another week done and another week closer to summer! Today was a beautiful day outside, finally getting a glimpse of how Spring should feel. Today we are going to dive into being sick and how work is affected by sickness. I had a talk with a friend the other…

Smackin’ On Snacks

It’s taco Tuesday! Who doesn’t love tacos? Skipper Jack’s has fish tacos for 2.22$ a taco if you are ever in Moncton on a Tuesday. Guacamole also has a taco Tuesday deal. You get a taco, you get a taco and you get a taco. Speaking of food, quick blog here in case any of…

Don’t Be That Shopper

Hello again! Hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are ready for another week. Did you get a chance to read my blog about being peopled out? Getting Peopled Out Today’s blog is something we have all wanted to say or maybe you have actually said while grocery shopping. Lets get into this blog and…

Getting Peopled Out

It’s Friday junior! That’s what I call Thursday, it sounds 100% better. Hope you all are safe from the flooding if you are around bodies of water. Also hope all of you are staying dry out there. Lots of the rain and wet snow the past, days, week, seems like years. I forget what the…

On The Hunt For More Than Just Easter Eggs

Hoppy Easter Every-bunny! Hope the Easter bunny found you. I live with the Easter Bunny all year, so there is no need to lay chocolate eggs all over the house. Although I did get up before mom came home from work and scattered eggs throughout parts of the house and left some chocolate goodies for…

Storyline Saturday: Pizza On Good Friday

Hello every-bunny! Hope your long weekend is going well. It’s a very wet and rainy day here. Lots and lots of rain down already and tons more to come. As people like to call it, it’s raining cats and dogs. It’s Saturday and I have remembered to write a blog for Storytime Saturday. In order…

Thoughts On Going Gluten Free

Hey everyone! How’s everyone doing? It’s Wednesday and its a short week (for me and other people) because of Good Friday, so that’s a bonus. It snowed this morning and then changed to beautiful sunshine, Mother Nature is just all over the place. So I have got to be honest with you, I have struggled…

Types Of Online Daters

WOAH! Slow down Michelle, you are writing more and this is weird. I am trying to get back into a routine, let me be. How was your Wednesday? Like most Maritimer’s today you have probably complained or talked about the weather out, its not a nice day out. If you haven’t talked about the weather…

Fashionably Late or Underdressed and Early?

Hello again, its been awhile, I know. Don’t worry nothing is wrong, I have been doing my normal jam just haven’t turned on the laptop to blog. I have been reading and walking, but not at the same time. Let’s talk FASHION! I know, I am talking about fashion?! You are probably thinking, this is…

Pesky Potholes

Welcome back to another blog. With Spring arriving this week, so did the massive potholes aka craters. They want to know what life on Mars is like, just take a drive on the roads to prepare for driving on Mars. When warmer temperatures arrive, the frost lifts, salt deteriorates asphalt, plow blades loosen patches on…

My Daily “Fitness Routine”

Its the weekend! Its an overcast, damp, foggy day here in the city. A good day to stay cozy inside. This morning I surprised myself and my mop and scrubbed the floors before 11am, go me. I’ll say that one more time because I couldn’t believe it either, I scrubbed my floors on a Saturday…

Listen Here Daylight Savings Time

We made it, you made it, I made it. We have survived Monday, cross that off the bucket list. Making it through Monday is on my to-do list every week. Its the first Monday back from March Break (I had 2 weeks off) AND its the first Monday back to work after Daylight Savings Time,…

Taking A Dab At Bingo

Hello everyone! Long time no blog! I’m back with a blog this evening thanks to my exciting evening at home with mom. I am still home as I have March Break this week, so mom and I have been spending lots of time together. Every Wednesday evening from 8pm till 9pm a local radio station…

Reminiscing, Remembering and Reflecting

I think those 3 words best describe how this past week has been. Almost all close family relatives were able to get home. We spent quality time together. We told stories about Nana K. We looked through photos and reminisced about past times. We had a lot of good laughs. We remembered the person we…

Holding On To The Memories

Its the phone you don’t want to answer. Its the news your heart doesn’t want to hear. Its devastating. Phone calls can bring so much joy and so much sorrow to ones life. There are no words to express how one feels after getting heart wrenching news about a loved ones passing. My dearest Nana K…

Ur-ine Deepwater

Need a laugh? Need to relax? Stop what you are doing and read this blog. I have got you covered. As we know, I am a germaphobe, many things make me say “ick” or scrunch my nose. Here is something I haven’t talked about. Lets dive into hotel pools. I think by the title of…

Watching Movies With Mom

Hello folks! Happy long weekend. I headed home for the weekend to see my family. My mom and I do a lot of things together, one thing we both enjoy is watching movies. Now, if any of you have witnessed my mother watching a movie or tv show, you’ll really understand this blog. I remember…

Giving A Shoutout

So how about that snow day tomorrow? Its looking like it will be pretty nasty. I have already faced the grocery store crowds and joined the unhealthy storm treats group. I proudly paid for my storm chips and regret nothing. I am not eating no bananas or apples on my day off. Also, maybe you…

A Trip To The Red Dirt Island

Hello again! I’m back with another blog and this time is about Prince Edward Island. I had a mini vacation there this summer. My wife lives on the island, so I was able to lay my head down there. I went to the island when school finished. Oreo and I packed our stuff and hit…
