[Celebration] — Zach’s 6th Birthday Party


This guy turned six years old! I still remember the day we celebrated his first birthday! That was 5 good years ago!

I didn’t end up taking much pictures because I took videos instead. What’s important is that all the kids had fun and played together. Another year older for this one! Cheers to celebrating many more birthdays!

Have an AWESOME day!!!

[Food] — The 3 Brewers


Visited 3 Brewers for the first time with a girlfriend of mine. This restaurant is like a bar type of restaurant with loud music. The interior feels very industrial looking.

I have to say the food here is below average. The poutine I ordered was way too salty and I had no interest eating it after a few bites. My girlfriend didn’t like her salad either. Felt like we wasted our calories from eating these things. Not sure if this is a place I want to return. Have you been here? What’s your thoughts?

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

Sharing with you a large haul from Samko & Miko Toy Warehouse. This is my second time being here and boy – this warehouse is huge! I didn’t get much for my boys except some work books & reading books. Mainly bought books and gifts for other kids birthdays. There’s like a few birthday each month – crazy much?

Look at all these princessy things! Super cute & affordable!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Hotpot Christmas Gathering With Friends


What’s even better than a cold winter night & hotpot right? We finally got to spend time with my girlfriends’ family. Our two families having dinner is one of the hardest thing to do due to different schedules but since its Christmas season – we made it happen.

The kids had a lot of fun playing with each other. Our four kids get along with each other without anyone complaining about each other. The two older kids were a bit crazy running around but that’s being a kid right? Haha.

Can’t wait to have more of these family gatherings together till next time! Always fun to learn new cultures and experiences. We are blessed to know each other & have a genuine friendship.

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

Christmas day celebration at inlaws which includes Hubbys’ grandpa birthday. The boys sure did have fun & I have no idea how they still had load of energy because they had an early morning!

Sushi overload!!!

We had time to play a round of monopoly which was about two hours long. Crazy long game but its fun!

We were tired that day due to the morning but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Our kids are our everything and we are so blessed to have them in our lives. Christmas 2017 was amazing!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Christmas Morning & Santa’s Letter


Did Santa come??? Of course he did! He did not disappoint but he also left the kids a letter too!

Oh man – our morning started very early with munchkin#1 rushing in our room around 7 in the morning! He was so excited to tell us Santa arrived! And he ate the cookies and drank tge milk. He was CRAZY excited.

We started off the morning with reading the Santa letters to both kids. Made sure munchkin#1 understood it before opening presents.

Look at these spoil bums! Yes! Good thing this happens twice a year! Christmas & birthdays. Our friends love spoiling these boys to the max when I tell them not to.

This year will be Munchkin#2’s second Christmas. He was not so into it because he was still very sleepy. I think by his next Christmas – he’ll be more awake. Overall an excited Christmas morning. Both parents tried to go back to sleep after opening presents. What a morning for our family!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Our 2017 Christmas Eve



We had a rather relaxing Christmas Eve last year. Visited my Stepmother & we went straight home just to lay around in bed with the kids. Got both boys dressed in Christmas matching pajamas. Aren’t they cute or what? I choose green this year – since the previous years are all red. Need a change right?

Made a simple dinner for hubby & I while the kids had something else. Got to have my favorite rosé as well.

When bed time came – Munchkin#1 and I prepared carrots for reindeers and cookies & milk for Santa. He is much more excited for Santa this year than last year! His excitement is off the roof! I love watching him experience the fairytale and magic of it all. It is what kids should feel right?

After setting up all that for reindeers and Santa – he went straight to bed! So did Santa end up coming? Stay tune!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Food] — Black Bear Japanese Fusion


Had lunch with my girlfriend here for the first time and oh my! The udon carbonara blew me away! It was soooo good! I never had udon carbonara before & it was amazing!

Black Bear is a fushion Japanese café where Sushi on 7 was located before. Not a lot of seats – so I made sure to make a reservation before coming. They have interesting things on the menu to order. I guess you just have to go out of your comfort zone to try new things. Price is average & service is quite good. I wouldn’t say its cozy atmosphere because its quite dark and cold with the interior. Definetely recommend it.

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Beauty & Home Compiled Shopping Haul


Since my skin care was finishing up – it was time to switch up to another set of skin care for the winter! Love how the packaging is in my favorite color. So far – I’m loving how my skin reacts to this set. Love the rosey smell too.

My girlfriend helped me pick up another face sponge which I’ve been loving!

Oh yes – bath bombs are one of my faves! I couldn’t help not getting these because of the tin! Its way too cute not to buy. I grabbed one for my girlfriend as well and she loves it. These are mini bath bombs.

Got this diffuser a few months ago when my girlfriend recommended it. Basically a humidifier but can add essential oil in it fir the house to smell good.

Picked up this gift set to try from Sephora. Let see if its any good.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Christmas with Relatives


Celebrated this years at our place again which I love hosting and having everyone over. The cousins got to play together while we got to catch up and munch on freshly baked banana bread.

Its a lot of working hosting but I enjoy the process of it and especially having people over. Well we have people over at our place daily – so keeping my home clean is like an every day thing.


Instead of celebrating at a restaurant – its nice to have that time to bond and have a conversation without being in a rush. These kids got to entertain the relatives and kept them busy. It was another successful Christmas gathering!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Celebration] — Hubby’s 35th Birthday


Celebrated hubbys’ birthday with the inlaws at our place with sushi. Honestly – with two kids and this wet cold weather. There’s no other places we want to be instead of home. Another reason that we love celebrating in the warmth of our home is that the grandparents can spend more time with the grandkids since we don’t see each other often enough.

What a relaxing and fun evening for us. Got to capture the moment for memories. Another year older & another year wiser.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Play Date & Christmas Craft


These kids got together before Christmas for a little play date. It has been awhile seeing these kids. Each time I see them – they are a little older.

We had a little craft session going on. Putting together Christmas owls. Love how they turned out & that the moms get to use it as decorations around our homes.

As always – the kids did their own things while the moms sat around & catch up. Always a good time!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Christmas Fun] — Santa Letters With Godfamily


Spent some precious sweet time with the Godfamily. The kids read a Santa book and wrote Santa letters to Santa.

I love watching these kids grow up together! It’s very heartwarming to know that they love and care for each other like siblings. Warms my heart so much!

Of course we took lots of photos of these kids. This is one of Caydens’ godmother & one of my very good friend. Love her to death. The love and care she has for my kids is unbelievable! They are always so spoiled by her!

Have an AWESOME day!!!
