Valentine's Day Gift For HIM With JORD Watches!


Raise your hand if you think men are difficult to shop for! I do! I never know what to buy my husband for any holiday, so he usually just tells me what he wants and I get that. Or worse- he buys himself something and tells me what I bought him after. 

He's been hinting around that he wanted a stylish watch for a while now, so I was really excited to collaborate with JORD Watches on this post.

JORD Watches are beautifully hand crafted from natural materials. The men's wood watch that we received is from their Dover series and is made of zebrawood and dark sandalwood

Treat Yourself This Valentine's Day!


Hi everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful February so far. I can't believe January is over, but I have absolutely no complaints about getting closer to Spring and Summer.

Valentine's Day is coming up, and my husband and I have always struggled with giving each other great gifts. We're the kind of people who usually just get a joint gift for the house, or buy ourselves something using the other person's money and call it a gift. My husband has been able to surprise me a few times though, which is a great feat on it's own because I am not an easy person to surprise.

Recently I was sent the entire Vichy Idealia line to try, and I cant help but think of what an amazing Valentine's gift this would be! If you're like us and buy gifts for yourself, or drop major hints to your significant other of what to get you, check this out! If you don't have a significant other, treat yourself! You Deserve it!

*Disclaimer- this product was sent to me at no charge, however all opinions, comments and photos are my own*

Valentine's Fun Guide For Kids! Food, Crafts & Gifts


I'm a sucker for holidays, and Valentine's Day is no exception. Growing up, my parents always got me a little something for Valentine's Day and whether is was chocolate, flowers, etc I always appreciated the gesture.

I like to do up a little gift basket of items for Mason, which got me thinking of other gifts that might be fun to give to your little valentines. 

I was going to create a little gift guide for kids, but then I got thinking about all of the other things I love about this lovely holiday and decided to include those as well.

Check out these fun Valentine's Day ideas for kids!

From Vision Board to Reality! I Write For A Magazine!

I'm a huge believer in the power of positive thinking and manifestation. Last year I created a digital vision board full of different photos of things I wanted to manifest in my life. Some of those photos included: a house, money, fitness, a family vacation, and a freelance job opportunity writing for a new wedding magazine.

Weddings New Brunswick is created by the amazing and successful boss babes Brittney Toner and Ashley Ketch. Brittney, along with being Editor of Weddings NB is also the owner of Panoramic Events and Pearl by Panoramic Events in Woodstock NB. Ashley is the Graphic Artist for Weddings NB and also owns Ashley Marie Photography and A+M Boutiques.

Since Adventures At Home has a huge focus on motherhood, I also feel the need to mention that Brittney created Weddings NB while pregnant with her second child! She gave birth to him just this month, and 6 days later was at the A Time For Weddings wedding show promoting Weddings NB (with baby not far away!)

 She is an inspiration to all mothers, business women, and anyone who has a dream.

Introducing: Mom Hustle Atlantic!

Hello friends!

I am so excited to let you know about a new Facebook group that Amanda from Legally Mommy and myself have created!

We wanted to connect working moms in Atlantic Canada by having a supportive community available where you can ask questions, vent, discuss life as a working mother, discuss work related issues, etc.

This is not your typical mom group! We will be doing occasional Facebook lives to discuss the working mom related issues that we all face, offering freebies to our group members, and more!

Our Trip To Dartmouth- Stay At The Best Western Plus & IKEA!!


My husband is an automotive service technician for a car dealership and (to my advantage) occasionally they send him on all expense paid work courses in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia! Now that we are into a new year, I was able to use some of my fresh vacation time and book 4 days off to tag along. Since last time we came alone, this time we decided to bring Mason since he's never been to Nova Scotia before.

Although it's a business trip for my husband, all I could think about was (finally) being able to go to the new IKEA!
