[Food] — Ikea Food & Soups • Vaughn & Review

e363

If you follow this blog long enough – you would know that I’m not a fan of Ikea’s meals. You can read my experience here back in June 2014. As much as I’m not a fan of their food – when it comes down to convenient with shopping – I didn’t have a choice. The only thing that I will eat at Ikea is their meatballs and mashed potatoes. I’ve tried almost everything of the menu and meatball is the best choice. What are your favorites at Ikea? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Winners HomeSense Haul • Affordable Prices

g0170

A bit late for this blog post – just found these photos on my album on Facebook – so had to share. The outfit on the left was for my son’s Halloween outfit. We bought it quite early. Picked up 7 photo albums, kitchen spoon, rain boots, kitchen towels, and a organization basket. All were at amazing prices. When you visit Winners HomeSense daily – you can sure go bankrupt because they have new stuff daily.

Here’s a close up – I visited 3 different Winners HomeSense to find 7 photo albums. These photo albums are for my kids photos. I need to find a couple more but so far out of luck right now.

[Throwback Thursday] — Goodbye Car! Hello New Car!

g0147

#THROWBACK to exactly a year ago – how our car broke down in the middle of the road! I was stressed out to the max and being over a month pregnant and dealing with home renovation stuff. It was a lot. PLUS my husband changed firms. Everything happened all at once but I’m thankful that we are all healthy and safe! Goodbye blue car! We missed you! #BMW #CAR #JOBS #NEWHOME #PREGNANCY #LIFE #LOVELOVELOVE #JENSLIFESTYLE

[Food] — Boston Pizza • Vaughn & Review

e364

Visited Boston Pizza recently at the Vaughn location. I love how there’s so many restaurants to choose from right after your finish with shopping. It was convenient and I was craving their shrimp tacos.

e365

My son ordered a kids meal that came with a drink, meal, and dessert. His choice for entrée was pizza and fries.

e366

My husband had steak and fries. I choose the fish taco. But it came with a creamy sauce instead of the sweet chili sauce I had in the summer. I guess it was a seasonal thing and they didn’t have it anymore. What a bummer it was because the sauce did make a huge difference.

Overall a satisfying dinner for all of us. Service was great and fast. Stay tune for more foodie adventures – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

[Haul] — Walmart Home Haul

g0164

This was a Walmart haul from awhile ago – mainly picked up a lot of treats for the party we were hosting back in August. I found out that Rice Krispies make whole wheat now? When did that happen? I had one of those and it takes the same as the regular one – still very sweet but I guess it’s healthier than the regular one? Have you tried the whole wheat version before? Anyways – got some basics and that was it. Not a huge haul – it was much like a rush with two kids. Stay tune for more daily hauls and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Lifestyle] — 25 Christmas Books • Starting December 1st

g0206

I was so thrilled to find 25 Christmas books at such affordable prices! The most expensive one was $3.50 and these are amazing quality books! Hard covers too! I’ve wrapped up all 25 books and starting from December 1st – my older son will be unwrapping one book a day until Christmas. I want this to be a tradition in our household. I’ll probably use these books for a few years – I don’t think he’ll remember it after a whole year right? I’ll be replacing a few books here and there but overall – it’ll mostly be the same ones.

g0200 g0201 g0202 g0203 g0204 g0205

Just for a little self reminder – I took pictures of the 25 books – so in case I shop for a few new ones – I won’t get duplicated. I can’t wait to do elf on the shelf next year as well. What are your family Christmas traditions? Comment below to share with us! Stay tune for more daily adventures & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for dropping by!

[LifeStyle] — Operation Christmas ShoeBoxes 2016 • DIY Projects

g0122\

Christmas is around the corner and the first time I think about is these shoeboxes for the kids in 3rd world country. We live a pretty privilege life with clean water to drink, a roof over our heads, and food on the table every day. The kids in third word countries might not even have 1/3 of what we have! I did this project with a girlfriend, her kids, and my son last year – you can check out the post here. We had so much fun wrapping up the shoe boxes, shopping for toys, and putting it together. The most important thing is the meaning behind it – teaching our kids to give back. This year I’ll be doing this project with my 2 son’s and husband – a family thing.

g0123 g0124

I wrapped these shoeboxes early October and did the shopping later on. The date to donate these shoeboxes is the third week of November this year. I wanted to wrap them early and put them together early is because when November hits – it’s like crazy busy for us! It’s always nice to plan ahead to avoid unnecessary stress right? I always say this but its so true! It’s such a busy season – I want to relax and enjoy the moment! I wrapped up 10 shoeboxes this year – for each shoeboxes – we need to donate $7.00CAD on top for shipping and handling. If your interested – check this website out for more information.

g0177

I had a bag of 100 balls laying around and I didn’t want to open it for my son to play with. So I had this idea of wrapping up these balls as part of the gifts for the shoebox project. It was so much fun wrapping and they look so cute too. Don’t they look like candies?

g0179 g0180

g0210 g0211

These are a few of the stuff I included in the shoe boxes – mostly toys and some are sanitation products. We could not include any liquid items or toothpaste – so I had to be thoughtful to what to get.

g0212

It’s a family affair and I love getting my kids involved. Well for this year – one kid involved. We try to explain to him why we do this and how some kids don’t have toys or anything to play with in other countries. I don’t think he quite understood that but we’ll try again next year.

g0213

Our little helper that helped put everything inside each box – he listened to instruction quite well. Except when he saw cars… He wanted to be playing with it instead of helping. Haha. But he did do a great job this year! Last year he did help a little bit but I did most the packing.

g0214

Here’s a shoebox for a girl. Which includes some toys, jewelries, crayons, coloring book, tissue, and band-aid. Have you given back this year? If not – start searching on how you can give back! It’s the season in giving back – although I believe giving back can be any season! Stay tune for more daily reviews & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Food] — Kim Po Vietnamese Restaurant • Markham Location & Review

g0154

Kim Po Vietnamese is located on Highway7 and Leslie – Times Square Plaza. Kim Po has  become one of my families favorite Vietnamese restaurant – its close-by and their soup broth is delicious! The price here is average and there is a lot of tables – so I never had to wait at all. I’ve visited for quite a few times already. One downfall is that every time I go here – one of the things we order takes forever. I’m not sure if the kitchen missed the order or what. That is quite annoying. At a time – I had to wait for my rice for over 20 minutes while my husband was half done his meal.

g0155

Other than the waiting problem – the food is delicious here. Have you been here? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more foodie reviews & adventures – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!

[Kids] — Fantasy Fair at Woodbine Mall • Kids Fun

g0207

We visited Fantasy Fair located inside Woodbine Mall with our friends on October 22nd, 2016. It was basically 3 families with 2 kids each. A total of 6 kids and 3 sets of parents. We had free tickets to play rides and boy the line ups were long! It was packed with people too! My advice to you is to go on weekdays instead!

g0208 g0209

What I love about this place is that it’s an indoor playground! Perfect for the cold season where you don’t want to go outdoor but there’s still a place for the kids to have fun. Kids will have fun while the adults can go shopping or have a meal. PERFECT! The unlimited rides pass is very inexpensive too – between $16-$18.

 

Overall – it was our first time there and our son loves it and wouldn’t want to leave. We had to drag him out even after 5 hours of fun! My foot was killing me by that point. Definitely recommend this place to you all! Have you been here? Your thoughts? Comment below! Stay tune for more daily adventures & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!
