OUR TRIP TO THE PRESIDENT'S CHOICE GARDEN CENTRE
How many thrillers, fillers and spillers does it take to craft the perfect planter? We put this horticultural humdinger to the test when we were invited by east coast media and President’s Choice to attend a gardening workshop at our local Atlantic Superstore.
This past weekend we celebrated our first Mother’s Day. To mark the occasion, our family gathered at Lindsay’s house for an oh-so-scrumptious high tea!
A MOTHER'S DAY Q&A
There ain’t no hood like motherhood! As we approach our very first Mother’s Day and almost a year with our little ones, we’re feeling über nostalgic about all of the special moments we’ve experienced in such a short amount of time. We recently had a chat about motherhood and thought we’d share some of our thoughts with you!
CRAIG FLINN'S GUACAMOLE RECIPE
We love guacamole. It's one of those foods that, when done right, just never gets old. It will come as no surprise, that Chef Craig Flinn, of Chives Canadian Bistro, 2 Doors Down, and 2 Doors Down Bar and Bites, makes the best guacamole.
We love food that is both delicious and nutritious. These guilt free muffins are a perfect fast breakfast or a healthy snack on-the-go.
TIPS TO CREATE A GALLERY WALL
We love the use of a gallery wall. It’s a visual pleasing design feature that adds classic character and makes a house feel more like a home. Check out a few of our top tips when creating your own gallery wall.
MASTERS PARTY 2018
This past weekend we dusted off our putters, pulled up our argyle socks and donned our green blazers (read ‘Adidas green track jacket’) to celebrate the final day of the 2018 Masters Tournament.
The countdown is on to April showers and May flowers! To welcome in a new season, we’ve put together a little checklist of spring to-dos that will have you (and your home) ready for the months ahead.
GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL
We love a meal that is fast to make, tastes delicious and good for us. This green smoothie bowl ticks all those boxes. Whether it's a quick breakfast, an after workout treat, or part of a healthy lunch, this smoothie bowl never disappoints.
To say we love birthdays is an understatement. We love a reason to celebrate - big or small. This past weekend was Jacqueline's birthday. To commemorate this occasion, we decided to live like tourists in beautiful downtown Halifax.
NO YOU MAY NOT HOLD MY BABY
Today on the blog we thought we’d share some real talk – some baby etiquette, if you will. We’re both first-time moms. We realize there are several stereotypes that come with that title, including over-protective, slightly anal and 24/7 worrywarts (do people still say worrywarts?). And while bringing up this topic will likely do nothing to banish those titles, we still would love to know if any other moms feel the same way we do.
WHY WE LOVE NURTURED'S PREGNANCY PARTY
When we found out we were pregnant (within weeks of one another), we quickly realized we were entering an unknown world. All of a sudden, our minds were consumed with questions like: What items will I need within the first few weeks of giving birth?
CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY OVERNIGHT OATS
We are so excited to share this recipe with you! Honestly, it's so good. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this chocolatey breakfast is sure to impress your Valentine.
DIY LIP SCRUB
What would we do without our girlfriends? Don't forget to show them some love this Valentine's Day. Our super simple, super effective coconut lip scrub is the perfect way to show you care.
REMEMBERING THE FIRST YEAR
We’re a handful of months into this mom thing and we both agree that it already seems like time is flying by. We love every single minute with our babies and are constantly taking mental images to try to remember every sweet second.
DIY WOODEN CHARGERS
On New Year’s Eve, we shared in our Instagram stories Lindsay’s harvest table set for a dinner party. Each place setting included a black wooden charger adorned with a name.
ROASTED TOMATO SOUP
On a cold day, there are few things we love more than a hot and delicious bowl of soup. Today we’re sharing a roasted tomato soup recipe that is sure to satisfy and easy to prepare.
