When life gives you too many bananas…

I’m sure every person in the Maritimes is saying “it’s a warm one out there” right now but it’s true! We always seem to start a conversation with a fact like “it’s a hot one, lots of rain last night, river is low or crops are really growing”. Nothing like stating what everyone else can…

Does Vegan Cheese Even Taste Good?!

Hello people of the internet. Happy Friday! How’s the heat treating you? Staying cool, trying to stay cool, counting down the days till fall (might be me…) or is the sweat dripping right off of you? Could you imagine your life without cheese (actual real cheese)? Would you find it hard? Could you stick with…

Cases, Coughing, Conferences

Hello everybody. Hello July and hello humidity, you can leave anytime or just lay off the humidity. I would assume once you read the first two words you thought about Covid-19. Now when we hear the words CASES we panic. When we hear or see someone COUGH we panic. When we are waiting for a…

It’s Not Easy Leaving

Oh hello there summer vacation, although it feels like summer vacation 2.0 as we had the pre summer vacation brought to you by Covid-19. Although it was like the summer vacation where you don’t actually go on vacation and you can’t leave your house and everything is closed. So I enjoy the second version better….

The Start Of A New Journey

Aloha amigos!! I believe change is good. I believe it helps us grow and not get too comfortable in a routine. With change comes anxiety and uncertainties. Change also might mean leaving areas with friends/family/coworkers. Change is needed in one persons life. I started to ponder my future last summer after I had a slight…

How Times Have Changed

I’m on a blogging roll. I have more motivation to write than I do to put jeans on. Have you been out and about lately? What have you noticed? Do you notice a different feel in the air? I really don’t go out that often. I go out for groceries, which happens once every 12-14…

Entering A New Week

It’s the beginning of week 5 of social distancing/staying home for me. This time has flown by. Even after 4 weeks I still have a hard time deciding what will I wear in my apartment today, pyjamas, comfy pants or jeans (as I shudder saying the word). I actually switched up my couch cushions, as…

Hoppiest Easter!

Hoppy Easter everybunny! I hope you are doing okay this Easter. I find it really doesn’t feel like Easter. Yes the calendar says it’s Easter and I have Easter decorations up but it just feels like another Sunday. Breaking news happened in my apartment today, might be on the news later on. I showered, got…

Quarantine Attire

Happy whatever day it is. Don’t ask me, seems like March added some extra days to itself. I don’t have anything exciting to report. I did go for a walk yesterday evening and it was shock to my body. My body is still recovering today. I feel safe saying that people who are not currently…

Spider Meets Broom

Hello world! “Hello from the other side”, cue Hello by Adele. It’s making a come back, 5 years later. Fun fact: Hello was released on my birthday. It’s good information to know if you were ever on Jeopardy or participating in a trivia night. I seen this meme/image/words/whatever you want to call it last week…

One Year

Today marks one year. One year of firsts without you. Going through the grieving process. What seems like only weeks ago. Has crept up to the one year anniversary. Reminiscing memories brings comfort where there is sorrow. Betty’s Rummy games are dealt out surrounded by friends and family. Hot tea is sipped, puzzles are built…

Third Time’s A Charm eh?

Hello all. Welcome to Thursday evening. Its Friday junior so that’s a positive. This week seemed like it had 3 extra days added to it. I’ve got a couple stories for you that have to do with 3’s. First story is about donating blood. I do not enjoy donating blood. I can easily feel faint…

Attempting To Make Cinnamon Rolls

Hello Sunday. Would you believe its not storming today? I know, seems odd. Its also groundhog day! Shadow or not, we are still subscribed to this white crap for a few more months. This weekend I was feeling a little adventurous, I had saved recipes that I wanted to try and kept bumping my baking…

Book To The Basics

January is flying by, its the 26th already. I find in a way its been zooming by and other ways its going at a good pace. As Sunday evening wraps up, I finished another book. I am on track with a book a week (I mean its only been 3 weeks BUT I am 3/3)….

2020 Vision

So I heard it’s a new year? Don’t ask me what day it is, I’m still trying to figure that out. Also still having troubles writing 20…19…29…20, 2020. I did not stay up past 10pm on New Year’s Eve. Midnight seems so far away when a comfy bed is much closer. 2 days into the…

Home For The Holidays

I’m back. Well for this blog. Life’s busy and I didn’t feel like writing anything. Here is what’s going on: It’s Christmas break now. One week down and one week to go. That’s two weeks of no alarm clocks going off every 5 minutes (because I need constant reminders to move my body). Two weeks…

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

It’s been a hot second since I wrote a blog. Life has been busy for the past 2 weeks. I just got back from a mini vacation with friends and I’m here to tell you all about it. Rewind to last Friday (June 21st) It was the last day of school! Woop woop. The school…

Dad and Daughter Bond

“A father holds his daughters hand for a short while but he holds her heart forever” Happy Father’s day to all the dads, grandfathers, uncles, soon to be dads, step dads and whoever else I didn’t mention.  Today is another day we show how much we love our dads (and other people I mentioned before)….

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…
