What’s on mom’s mind this week?
Summer and how to make the most of it. Each year summer just seems to go by way too fast.

What I’m currently coveting?
Chloe loves all things related to the kitchen these days. I’ve been wanting to get her this play kitchen as it seems like a toy that will grow with her over time/we can add things to it.

What I’m loving?
These bibs are the best. They are so easy to clean and don’t get wrecked in the wash.

What’s headed to the recycling bin?
So long old friend. While our nursing journey hasn’t come to a complete end (anyone have any tips on how to stop!?) I am looking forward to saying adios to daytime tops like these now.

What I read on the Internet this week that was kind of cool
A friend of mine mentioned this article to me and while I don’t think I could wear the exact same thing to work each day I am digging the message.

What Chloe’s eating
On Canada Day, we went to a ribfest and instead of eating ribs (hate them!) I hit up the Humber food truck. They were serving a delicious watermelon/strawberry smoothie that Chloe loved. I’ve recreated it at home and all it takes is blending some watermelon, strawberries, a bit of greek yoghurt and a couple of squeezes of orange together.

Books, books, books
A bit of a blast from the past as this was my all-time favourite book when I was little. My dad used to read Frank Asch’s Popcorn over and over to me. I even knew when he would try to skip pages…

Chloe’s jam of the week
This week’s jam is courtesy of my guilty pleasure TV show, Mistresses. Younger (Kygo remix) by Seinabo Sey was played at the end of this season’s premiere. My husband thinks the show is beyond terrible, but I can’t stop watching.

If my husband and I had a date night this week
If my husband and I had a night out this week we’d be checking out Fat Pasha.

Busy moms 
Fitting in exercise can be tough, so I like to look for workouts that can really deliver when you don’t have as much time as you used to. If you are in Toronto check out Ferris360. You don’t be disappointed.

Rant of the week
Why do people who have no need to use accessible doors feel the need to? Are people so lazy that they’d rather push a button to open a door than open the door themselves? Just something I’ve noticed a lot of this year.

And just because…
We all need to remember that we are beautiful and to be kinder to one another.
