Royal Tyrrell Museum, Alberta

One of my most vivid memories from when I was a child is the fact the my brother went crazy for dinosaurs!! Any dinosaurs…. All dinosaurs!! In preschool he already knew tons of the scientific names, he knew their sizes and what they ate… it was crazy!! He had this amazing dinosaur puzzle that he…

Relaxing at the Bellagio Pools

On our short visit to Las Vegas, we were staying at the Bellagio… Because you know, we really really wanted to!! We picked up a couple tips (like the $20 room upgrade tip… which works great by the way!!), rekindled friendships in the most unlikely of places (looking at that Irish people we know…), but…

Prospect Park Smorgasburg

The Smorgasburg located in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, reminded us of the good old Hazel Food Market in South Africa. The Hazel Food Market was literally around the corner from our house, and a favourite stop for us every Saturday!! Here in Edmonton the closest thing to these markets would be farmers markets. To tell you…

Main Bathroom Update

Our Main Bathroom Update was done probably about 18 months ago (I know… WAY overdue post!!). We are SO busy updating our house (and doing life), that sometimes I just don’t get around to blogging about it… and then, when I do get time, I’m so overwhelmed by the HUGE amount of things that I…

Grand Central Station – NYC

Grand Central Station is undoubtedly one of the busiest and most beautiful stations in the world. Of course a visit to New York City won’t be complete without a stop at Grand Central. The activity in this place is SUPER CRAZY!!! You really just want to stand in the corner and admire the fact that…

DIY World Map Stain Art

I want to show you guys what I am working on at the moment – a world map stain art piece!! I did this on a 4’x 8′ sheet of plywood with Minwax English Chestnut stain. Since the study is mostly my hubby’s domain, this is what he had in mind for one of our…

2016.11.11 From my Kitchen Window

The only thing that I love about this time of year is that we get to witness these types of sunrises… It might just be one of the prettiest things that exist!!

Best Time to Visit the Charging Bull

When me and hubby were compiling the list of places we wanted to visit and things we wanted to do while in New York City, naturally the Charging Bull from Wall Street came up. Granted, this wasn’t top of the list, but when else are you going to get the opportunity to take a picture…

Edmonton Weather Update

Flatiron Building, New York City

The Flatiron Building on Manhatten is one of the most iconic buildings in the city. Located on Broadway and Fifth Avenue it stand 21 storeys tall. It was originally called the Fuller Building but, you guessed it, because of its shape, locals started calling it the Flatiron Building. The name stuck, and now the whole area…

Crescent Falls, Alberta

Crescent Falls has long been on my list of places I wanted to visit. It wasn’t until recently that I made the effort to find out exactly where Crescent Falls is located!! So close to home – It was a no-brainer… We would visit Crescent Falls in the very near future!! We took our dutch…
