Have You Joined The Finish Revolution?

by MARIA on March 31, 2012

A couple months back, our dishwasher died. It was a sad day. We never had a dishwasher when I was a kid and didn’t get one until five years into our marriage. 32 years without a dishwasher – tragic, I know. Then we buy one and it dies within three years. So we replaced it with […]


I am not a bank. I say this A LOT to my lovely children, who sometimes think otherwise. As the kids have gotten older, both my husband and I really believe that the kids need to understand the value of money and how hard it really is to earn it, and why spending it should […]


Week Two

by MARIA on March 29, 2012

Just weighed myself this morning – here’s how I did using the gems: Woo. What did I do differently this week? I cut out Starbucks, Diet Coke, bread, pasta, and junk. I’ve also been drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day. I’ve been eating lean proteins, tons of veggies and salads with 1tbsp […]


The Golden Book of 365 Stories

by MARIA on March 28, 2012

This book is one of my most beloved and prized possessions. I have had it since November, 1980. If you’re bad at math, that would be THIRTY years ago. THIRTY!!! How did that happen? I’m only 25 after all…..ahem. Anyway…. It’s just a wonderful book that has 365 stories, one for each day of the […]


I know I’ve said this before on past DK Canada reviews that I’ve done, but I LOVE DK Canada. I love the variety of their book titles – so many really cool, educational books for everyone in the family. DK Canada online always has something going on, from fun promos and great sales to unique contests with […]

The Disney iHome line is a fun collaboration of iHome products, geared towards the younger set. Minnie Mouse, Phineas & Ferb, Jack (from Nightmare Before Christmas) and my beloved Kermit the Frog all adorn the product line that […]


Weight Watchers Week One And 100 Shiny Gems

by MARIA on March 22, 2012

Ola. Hope you’re all enjoying the gorgeous weather out there. So, before I talk about my first week back on the Weight Watchers, I wanted to blog about this great idea I read about that I am now going to borrow for my own weight loss. I want to give credit to the blog/site that […]


Peekaboo Beans is a Canadian playwear line for children ages 3 months to 8 years (a tween line for girls (up to size 14) launches in September). The pieces are stylish, functional and meant to mix and match from season to season. Everything is pre-washed, drawstrings are sewn in, waistbands are extra wide and can […]


I just started back on the Weight Watchers, (my first week’s weigh-in will be posted tomorrow), because after waffling on what program to do, I’ve decided this is the one for me. Since I get so many visitors asking about Weight Watchers, I wanted to share a post with some details about the new Weight […]


In LOVE With Downton Abbey

by MARIA on March 19, 2012

I FINALLY sat down over the weekend to watch Downtown Abbey. I watched the first five episodes in a row. I would have watched more but I think it was 4 a.m. at that point. I’ve just finished Season One and already well into Season Two. It’s official – I LOVE Downton Abbey. I adore […]
