Hemp To The Heart Pumpkin Pie Bites

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! Fall is in the air with the falling leaves and the crisp air. You know what that means?! Pumpkins of course! Pumpkin fully encompasses everything that is fall. With Thanksgiving this weekend who doesn’t want a healthy pumpkin pie alternative. I came up with Hemp to the Heart Pumpkin Pie Bites that have the perfect amount of crunch that taste just like a bite of pie. I’m not going to lie; I could probably eat the whole batch. Lucky for the boys I decided to share.

Why Running is a Top Priority in My Life as a Mom 

Hey all! I had quite the weekend learning and grooving at my course. I have a lot of exciting stuff brewing and I’m feeling really passionate about the future. Be sure to stick around, I don’t want you to miss anything.

Today on the blog, I have a good friend, Carey talking about her online running groups. She and I met a few years ago at one of her running groups and have been friends ever since. She has since moved to Costa Rica and is pursuing her passion in health and fitness. I couldn’t be more proud of her and what to take this opportunity to share her story.

Starting tonight through the weekend I will be learning more about exercise and body movement.

Crockpot Pulled Pork

Happy Friday folks! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend. Where did this week go? After a few crazy weeks I was finally able to unwind this week and take it easy. I was also able to catch up on house work and laundry. Thank goodness because it was starting to look like a mad house around here.

Prairie Love Festival Day 1 Recap

I’ve sat down at the computer numerous times in the last couple of days to put into words my experience at the Prairie Love Festival but honestly there are no words. I left the festival on Sunday evening feeling beyond inspired. Inspired to be better, better at being a mom, better at being myself, better at chasing my real goals. It’s hard to pinpoint the moment that made me feel different, it was a combination of little things that came together to make magic.

Garden Tomato Basil Salad

Happy Friday folks! I’m happy it’s the weekend and what’s even better is that it’s a long weekend which includes my son’s birthday. I know we already celebrated last weekend but we still want to make his day extra special. We have plans to make a special breakfast then head to Bird’s Hill Park. The boys plan to bike around and play at the park while I run 9 miles with some friends. After my run we are going to hit up a local farmers market and browse around. The Pineridge Hollow farmers market (link) has a few animals to pet and live music so it should be a fun morning. After lunch the boys plan to build a big Lego set with Chad that Ashton got for his birthday. We will finish off the day making some homemade pizza and maybe have a bonfire.

WFPS Half Marathon Training Schedule/Ninjago party recap

As promised in Friday’s post (here) I have a few highlights from my two son’s birthday party this past weekend. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for an outdoor party! With the temperatures going into the mid 30’s, we decided to set up two kiddie pools and the slip n’ slide to keep the kids cool. We had a total of 12 kids running around pretending to be ninjas and it was totally awesome. Here are a few pictures of the Ninjago party.
