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!

20 Side Hustle Ideas For The Goal Gettin' Mama



Ahh I love a good side hustle. I've been side hustlin' ever since middle school where I made notebooks from paper and staples to sell to my classmates.

When I first started on my own in the workforce, I soon realized that one stream of income just wasn't enough. Then becoming a mom and realizing just how expensive kids are, my want for multiple streams of income grew. I once read online somewhere that most millionaires have SEVEN streams of income! I'm not anticipating becoming a millionaire any time soon, but being able to live comfortably and not worry about money would be nice.

Before I get into the list, I want to tell you a bit about my current side hustle situation.

Our Decluttering & Home Decor Goals for 2018




2018 is gearing up to be the year I accomplish some home related goals I've had on my list for months, so I wanted to tell you a little bit about our home and what my plans are!

About Our Home

The first thing to mention about our house is that it's not really ours at all. We currently rent a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhouse with the goal of saving up for a down payment on our own house.
