Our New Modern Design Kitchen Sink + BLANCO Canada

Our kitchen sink was in need of an update. To the wandering eye you probably wouldn’t think so, but as a busy family, the more and more we used our sad little faucet we knew it was time to freshen it up just a bit. We turned to a very trusted brand that I had the pleasure of meeting back in September at Blog Podium, BLANCO Canada.

It was literally love at first sight for me. The design, colours, looks and not to forget the quality and craftsmanship just exceeds expectations. I love the dark look and sleek feel in our already darker kitchen. Which in the future if we decide to upgrade to a brighter and fresher area the sink will be very versatile and be long lasting with the flow with a newly updated kitchen. Future goals! Don’t tell Drew;)

Our proviso sink and faucet were built in by the previous owners of our townhouse, so we’re not really sure how old it was or the brand they had used. Drew did this little/big project all on his own with no previous experience at all. I’m actually so impressed with how quick it was to change up and install. All of the pieces were in tact, measurements were perfect and everything literally just fell into place for us.

We went with the ALTA Dual Finish faucet in Chrome and Cinder. Pulls out to a very nice length with two different spray features. All very powerful! For the sink we went with a very elegant VISION Dual Sink in Cinder as well. It’s a very easy sink to clean and any left-over residue hides nicely within the colour even if you might have totally forgotten to clean it up!

Three Summer Ready Dresses

Three Summer Ready Dresses

Summer is coming baby! I’m so looking forward to warmer weather and a modest effort to classic outfits. Hinting at the ever so easy Summer Dress. My day usually runs from 7am to around 11pm and I’m on the go all day. I love having styles close by that can take me from morning to night, looking good and feeling good. Something that I don’t ever have to think “Is this to dressy?” or “Is this to causal?” Having items that can take me to both levels is SO easy! And I really want to make life easier, Am I right?

Knowing What To Do When You Smell Natural Gas with FortisBC

It’s very important to understand what to do if you small natural gas in your home. Making sure you make all that right steps and precautions so this doesn’t happen in your home is right here for you. If by some chance it doesn’t happen to you, can you fully admit that you are prepared, you know what to look out for and what to do?? I’m very thankful for a handy husband and for the education that FortisBC has given us about Gas Safety.

As a family we’re always making sure we’re up to date and know what to look for when it comes to natural gas leaks. My husband is always on top of things, which had me thinking… Do I know what to look for or know what to do if I smelled natural gas when he wasn’t home? I really started to make sure that I read and researched everything I could to help myself. I followed him around our home and made sure I knew of the possibilities of where a leak could come from.

I think that it’s really important and handy to know what to do when you smell natural gas. Just having that peace of mind helps our family feel safe. Thankfully FortisBC has given and provided a lot of information and resources to help us out! Natural gas is a sneaky one as it’s odourless and colourless, trace amounts of a chemical called mercaptan that smells like rotten eggs is added to help you detect a potential natural gas leak.

So let’s get started on a few things. Now that you kind of have an understanding of natural gas safety, let’s talk more on what to do if you smell rotten eggs, and some precautions to help you before you smell it!

Know What To Do If You Smell Natural Gas:

  • Before anything right now what your sitting on the computer research and watch some great videos courtesy of FortisBC http://bit.ly/GasOdour they have been a huge resource for our family.
  • If you or a loved one smells rotten eggs, stop what you’re doing
  • Leave your home
  • Call FortisBC’s 24 hour emergency line 1-800-663-9911 or 911

Taking measures before you detect natural gas is the best idea for all homeowners. Our family has gone through all the steps and listed what we have done below just to be sure.

Things To Do Before You Smell Natural Gas:

  • Do your research make sure you read articles like this one or watch videos just to help educate yourself and your family.
  • Get annual maintenance on all your natural gas appliances and equipment
  • Write up “what to do” and emergency contact numbers for when you’re not home and a babysitter may be home or the kids are alone.

As long as you’re keeping up to date with your home inspections, resources and know what to do you’ll feel better as a parent. It can happen to anyone, knowing you’ve taken the right measurements and used the resources available from FortisBC will give you peace of mind!

15 White Lies I’ve Told My Kids

Happy Mothers Day to all of you beautiful hard working mothers out there!

It won’t be long parents, then I’ll be cut off of my white lies……

5 Things We Love About Avent Bottles

Disclosure: I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Philips Avent and I received Compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Our littlest girl is trying so hard to grow up walking at 8 months, climbing stairs shortly after, talking full sentences so little. At the same time she reverts just a little to her baby stage. It’s bittersweet for all of us. But for the most part she’s been able to kick a lot of her baby routines like breastfeeding, her soother, her sookie blankie. It’s all starting to come together except her love for carrying around a bottle. Honestly enough this new thing only started a few months ago and I’m starting to see a reason for her new love. …

Into The Woods We Shall Go…

You all know how much I love photo sessions, it’s one of my favourite parts of blogging. But when you say to your family “We’re doing family photos” the joy gets a little sucked out of it with their reaction of pure crying. haha The kids cry and complain, outfits always get dirty right before photos, everyone looks in opposite directions or picking their nose (cough cough Ella!) It’s usually a battle that I’m always willing to fight for, because common…I fight for these photos so that our family will get to enjoy them for years!…
