You’ve stopped taking birth control.  You have discussed wanting to have a baby with your significant other. You and your partner are both aware and ready for the sleepless nights ahead. You are ready for a baby. It’s time to get pregnant, right?

Wrong.  Dead wrong.

Most women don’t think about what having a baby will do to their lives.  They don’t realize the detrimental effect it will have on their fashion sense. Not everyone knows that a baby does not typically match their  favourite outfit. Most moms that carry around their babies in those baby knapsack things look like total and utter douches and they will likely end up on What Not to Wear! I know what your thinking, time to tie the tubes and settle for buying a cat.  Wrong!  Cats aren’t fashionable either (haven’t you ever watched Hoarders?)   Also, the amazing japanese inventors have done it once again, they have solved all your baby fashion nightmares.  These lovely baby sweaters come in a variety of colours and fabrics.  How styling (and not at all creepy) !!


Ever gotten ready for bed, and climbed in only to realize that you have forgotten your pillow?
Ever at work and lay your head down on your desk for a few minutes, only to wake up to a pounding headache…because you didnt have…a pillow?
Ever go to a club and meet a really great guy, but couldn’t go home with him cause you didn’t bring your pillow?! and you watched as he took home the girl at the end of the bar who happened to have one. sucks to be you.

Well that girl was smart, cause she had Pillo.m.g. A full functioning, 100% cotton, stain resistant pillow that attaches to your head so you will never face those embarassing moments when you say “damn, I shoulda brought my pillow”. Like when you go for your morning run, and halfway through you just need to nap, but you’re too far from home, so you lay down on the bench and rest your head on an elderly mans lap and you contract lice. shoulda brought your pillow!

So wear this baby everywhere and your life will improve by 0.05%! look at this girl! she is SUPER happy! She’s about to hit up da club and party hard!  you go girl!


Our latest interview is with Robert Munsch. Munsch is known and loved by many for his unique storytelling methods and his amazing children’s books. Munsch has written over 50 books, including The Paper Bag Princess, Mortimer, I love you forever and Smelly Socks
I approached Robert Munsch with 6 questions. He answered only 2, but don’t worry Bob…we will still Love you Forever (get it??). Instead of leaving his unanswered questions blank I’ve decided to answer them for him since I feel like we are very close (My mom is a super famous author too...no big deal)…so our lives are probably very similar.

1) What is your favourite 90’s sitcom?
*this is what I think he’d say.

2) Do you own any music by Rita MacNeil?
*this is what I think he’d say.
Are you kidding me? I love Rita MacNeil, half of my books are inspired by her music!

3) Do you have any nicknames?

6) Do you have a favourite youtube video? If so, what?
*this is what I think he’d like.


So we frequent the Fortinos in downtown oakville.  Today was like any other day.  We walked to fortinos, chatted about our lives, the weather, our weekends.  Little did we know our lives were about to change forever.
As we approached Fortinos we noticed a strange noise coming from the building.  Some might say it sounded exactly like a fire alarm.  We decided that we really needed hummus so we continued on, ignoring the earth shattering noise.  We got to the top of the escalater and witnessed pure chaos.  Grown men in tears. Women were frantically running toward the exits.  Several small children were rolling around in flames.  Fortino’s was on fire and we were literally at the heart of it all.  Being the extreme bloggers that we are we decided even in the midst of the crazyness we had to capture the moment on camera.  We took this picture before being carried out by firemen and given CPR.

Thankful we are all okay.   It could have been a lot worse.  We all feel closer  because of it.  We’ve developed a bond that will never be broken.
