The Canadian Beef Experience

Beef. Some would say that it’s the heartbeat of our province (second to energy, perhaps), and our country is known for producing some of the best beef in the world. Our ranchers are undeniably passionate about raising cattle – farming is a lifestyle, not a career. I’m no stranger to the cattle industry, even though […]

Preparing For Baby

As I’ve revealed in the past, we’re expecting our first child (25 weeks and counting). Exciting! And, even more exciting is the sheer “cute” factor of baby gear. I was excited about the prospect of buying a whole slough of adorable onesies, a trendy travel system, and other essentials, because I wanted to be hip. […]

Cheesy Wood Pulp?!

You may have heard, in the news, that an American cheese company has been caught with its pants down. This company sold grated parmesan cheese with the assumption that it contained parmesan cheese and only parmesan cheese. Well, it turns out that there was zero parmesan cheese and a small percentage of cellulose. There were […]

Fifteen Minutes of Fame

A few weeks ago, my fiancé and I were out with friends at the Pig & Duke Neighbourhood Pub. It happens to be one of our favourite pubs, and it’s one that never disappoints. While we were there, the owner of the pub approached us and, after some time conversing, he invited the table to […]

I’m Broken, and That’s Okay

A few months ago, I had a panic attack. I think it followed an argument about planning our future wedding. I wanted to elope, but my fiancé wanted a big party, and the costs seemed insurmountable, and KABOOM! Shortly afterwards, we found out I was pregnant, and I became convinced that having a child would ruin […]

New Year, New Blog?!

When we last saw (figuratively) saw each other, I promised to do some soul-searching over the holidays and come back with a vengeance. Admittedly, I ate a truckload of cookies and played Cards Against Humanity with various family members, laughing that each round of drinks made their answers more ridiculous. So, the blog is still […]

Oktoberfest, Part Two

I thought we were going to do some touring of Munich on our second day in this marvellous city, but we ended up back at Oktoberfest. Upon our hostess’ recommendation, we were more confident about sneaking into a big tent, because it was the last day. The locals were less likely to partake in the […]

Beer and Bratwurst

It has been a while, to say the least. My last month has been hectic and stressful, leaving little time to share my thoughts with you. And, by thoughts, I mean the things that go into my belly. A couple of days ago, we left to Europe. We flew from Calgary to London to Prague, […]

The Saskatoon Farm

Okay, I’ve been slacking. I apologize. It’s been a bit of a tumultuous week, and last weekend, my partner and I replaced the rear rotors and brake pads on my new-to-me vehicle. You’ll recall that my vehicle was stolen – click here to read my open letter to the thief. I’m one of those weirdos that names […]
