A little treat for my readers!

I'm not sure if I've had the chance to post much about B's amber necklace on here, but if you've seen him in person, you've probably asked about it and heard my never ending speech.
So, amber has amazing NATURAL healing properties and is amazing for teething babies/children. That's it's most common use, but there are many more. Hazel Wood has great NATURAL healing properties for many other ailments like skin issues.
My favorite company (and it's Canadian!!!) is and as my treat for you, I'm going to give you a hazelaid discount code for 10% off everything. They have sooo many beautiful pieces of jewelry as well as other natural products. Spread the word, the code is good for everyone and you can use it as many times as you want!!!

Happy Shopping friends!!!!!

Another Attempt

I have written this post numerous times now and each time after staying open on the computer for days, it ends up getting closed. Each time the post is different, but hopefully this one actually makes it to the end!

The boy is still sleeping (despite my attempts to encourage him to wake), Daylight Savings Time has kind of messed us all up around 219. Springing forward is definitely easier than falling back...Life Lesson #7890923841267 (I made that number up) lol.

We had our annual trip to Florida last week. Unfortunately, Daddy couldn't come with us, but Aunt Julie stepped up and did some major bonding with B. I was rather hesitant about the entire trip (the flights, the nights, feeding him, the sunshine), but it went perfectly! Everyone helped out with B and I didn't feel like a single mom at all. Cudos to those of you that are single parents, I don't even know how you do it.

Despite my best laid plans, I hear stirring from the nicest room at 219... always wonder what's so funny in there when no one is around. The giggles haven't turned into yelling (which may turn into shrieking) yet, so I may have a few more minutes to get this done.

I'm not sure what direction I want this blog to take, but I think I have to decide. Do I cover relationships, home ownership, parenting, eco friendly living????? After typing that, I guess I cover them all. Why was I wondering?? Now I have myself confused.

Here are a few of our favorite things!

OK, Ok

So at the constant demands of a few people, I'm giving you a post. Now that we are on a better nap schedule, who knows, they may even come more frequently (pfft, yeah right). 219 is a whirlwind of activity these days. B is standing and climbing and protesting and very curious. These are all good things right? The past couple months have led me to think about the old boy vs girl behaviours. I don't care what anyone says, boys are boys and girls are girls...219 most definitely has a little boy. To the parents that think they can hide the sex of their child, good luck. Why would you force your child to live your weird test on society. IDIOTS!

We had a very busy (read expensive) month in December, new water heater, new furnace (thank you to 219 Daddy for installing it himself!), Christmas prezzies, travel, and to top it off, gall bladder removal for my precious Buff Buff. Yes, believe it or not, the beagle now lives a normal life gall bladder free. She's lucky I love her as much as I do. I'm going to let you imagine what emergency surgery costs, I will never admit to what we actually paid. It was worth every single cent and we would do it all over again. She recovered well and is back to buff buffing like her old self.
