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.

Top fall runs for Winnipeg

With fall fast approaching, I decided to put together a list of the top fall runs within Winnipeg to keep us all motivated with some goals in mind. I’ve included a variety of distances so there’s something for everyone.

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.

Hearty turkey chili

Happy weekend all! I have yet another busy weekend full of birthday celebrations. We will be celebrating my youngest son Hudson’s 2nd birthday and my middle son Ashton’s 5th birthday on Sunday afternoon. We decided to combine their parties again this year because their birthdays are only two weeks apart and really who wants to have two parties that close together? It’s going to be a Ninjago themed party (for those of you without small boys in your life, that is a Lego ninja show). I tend to go a little overboard on decorating and themes when it comes to parties with my kids. It’s something I really enjoy and the boys love it. I have been prepping all week to get ahead of the weekend craziness. I’ve already made the piñata, filled the goodie bags and done all the shopping. Today I will be working on the cake. I do still have a few details to plan out but I’m really excited for the party. Stay tuned and I will post pictures on Monday from the party.
