I'm a normal, average girl trying to survive motherhood, wife-hood (is that a word??)and life with good humour, fantastic friends and family, and God willing.. good looks. So pull up a chair, pour a glass of wine, and laugh along with me as I share too much information.

I’ve always been proud to be from Saskatchewan. Our province is built on the backs of people who wouldn’t give up. Our loyalty and tenacity is unmatched. We will support a losing team year after year, sighing as we remind those around us that there is always next year....

Hockey parenting 101

Because hockey education sometimes misses a few people. I’ve been so lucky to have been mentored by beauties. The following is what I know to be true.

Timbits: Settle down. I promise the proficiency here is a developmental game. They’re babies. Chee...

Almost a year ago I put on an intention bracelet that reminded me to follow my arrow. 



It was perfect timing. I was with my sister and cousins back home in Saskatchewan, where we found the cutest little shop and I stumbled upon the perfect reminder to put on my wrist, a...

Happy New Year! I spent the day in sweats, eating the last of my “don’t eat that in 2019” food, and watching college football.

Coincidentally, as I was making short work of a cheese ball and hot wings, my oldest was taking his seat in Pasadena, about to take in the ama...

Every hockey mom knows this view. It feels like for entire months, we are lacing kids into skates, blade precariously placed between our knees, fingers rubbing on laces (or sticking on waxed laces) as we hurriedly get the kids on the ice.  


I just got back to the house...

I’ve sat down to write this blog for 7 years.  I’ve never been able to find the right words, or I've convinced myself that having an opinion on a subject that has nothing whatsoever to do with me is unnecessary. I decided that my voice could bring no change.

There are two types of people in this world. Those who are cheerleaders, and those who wish they were. 


There are a lot of things I regret about my past. As we’ve learned, Sun In was NEVER the cure to the lack of funds my parents were willing to give me for highlights....

Another summer weekend has come and gone.

Canadians know how to live their best lives in the few short weeks of summer we get.  BBQs, floating on lakes, camping, quadding, hiking- you name it, Canadians are out there doing it. There’s a particular urgency in the prairie...

I’m going to be 35 tomorrow. 

I’m not freaked out or worried about being 35 at all.  Some of the coolest people I know didn’t come into themselves until 40.  Age, as all sayings would have you believe, is relative.  Having said that, I will say that growing up I thought...

May 1, 2018

I’ll forever be a little ticked at the universe that I can’t eat tacos, chocolate, ALL the cheese, and drink wine everyday without gaining weight.  As you have often heard me lament, I have gotten all the hair genetics one could ever ask for, alas, my metabolism…not so...
