Cloth for a Cause Build Your Stash Bash Blogger Opp!

Cloth for a Cause is a cloth diaper lending organization that is 100% staffed by unpaid volunteers. We primarily service Canada, but we've also been known to aid struggling families in the United States, as well. Like most charitable type of organizations, we desperately need help to meet the demand. We need help with both cash donations and material donations like cloth diapers, KAM snaps, and 1/4 inch swim elastic. Some of our chapters are getting so many applications for assistance that they are unable to keep up with the demand, so diapers are desperately needed... particularly in Nova Scotia. 100% of all cash donations go directly to Cloth for a Cause.

So what does this mean for bloggers?

Bloggers can help Cloth for a Cause out by taking place in the Cloth for a Cause Build Your Stash Bash, hosted by Cloth Diaper Addicts, Leettle Baby, and Viva Vel Toro.
Cloth for a Cause Built Your Stash Bash (and Diaper Drive)
This event is going to be amazing and huge. We've got some amazing sponsors lined up, including Cozy Bums, Nicki's Diapers, Lagoon Baby, AppleCheeks, Diapers by Chris, and more! 100% of the funds raised go directly to Cloth for a Cause.

Gluten Free Bread: A recipe worth sharing


Since I stared eating gluten free, my biggest source of frustration was finding a good bread recipe.
 During that time I definitely fell in love with Udi's products and when I was not trying experimenting with a new bread recipe at home, I would simply buy a loaf at the store. But being the frugal person that I am I just couldn't bring myself to continue to pay upwards of $6 for a loaf of bread.
So, I was happy when last week during my latest "experiment" I finally found a recipe that worked for me.

Star Wars Costumes: not just for Halloween {Wholesale Halloween Costumes}


I love to keep plenty of costumes around the house for the kids to play with. This also works out great for wearing to birthday parties, special dress up days at school and lately for when our oldest is required to bring in props for drama class.

Our son loves to dress up and especially loves it when we turn a corner and he is able to surprise us, so it was no shock that he was excited to try out this Jango Fett costume. 

Since he is turning 11 this month we ordered a size large, which states it is for ages 12-14 where the size medium is for ages 8-10 so he will be able to get some extended use from this one.


I think it is a great bonus that you can order costumes year round and have them shipped right to your door!

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Of course everybody loves a great party, so when I heard about the Ultimate Blog Party I had to join in!

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

I started blogging in 2011 and originally was keen to have a way to document our lives and share some wonderful things we love. This evolved into also reviewing products and having giveaways, along with continuing to share our favourite moments.  
One our favourite things to share is food and we have some great recipes to check out. This banana bread recipe is a hit with our children (otherwise known as the monkeys), these spring rolls are a great appetizer, and this is a great idea for a quick veggie side dish!
