It’s February 29th, and all those who are supposed to be turning 40, but only have a birthday ever 4 years, have finally reached the ripe old age of 10! Just the perfect age to go to camp, and of course they’ll have to label every item they take with them! What better way than to use Mabel’s Labels!
Today only, Mabel’s Labels is having a humongous 29% percent off everything sale! That’s gargantuan! So…Continue

I am thankful for conversations with my daughter
Poppet has just turned 16-months-old, and she is already talking up a storm (look out phone bill!) She is so much fun. And she is not just saying random words anymore. She actually carries on full conversations, complete with hellos, pleases, thank yous, I love you’s, Pretty, Bye Bye!
I realized, when she was too tired to walk when she woke up yesterday and decided to crawl for a couple…Continue

I’ve been following the 80Bites Diet for 3 weeks now, and I’m loving it! If you want to join their program with me they’ve offered a 20% discount code…Continue

When we are home, we love to use our gDiapers! I mean we really love to use them! I am not a big fan of the ingredients and lack of regulations that are implemented with standard disposable diapers. Even when I want the convenience of disposables, gDiapers have a flushable (you read that right, FLUSHABLE) disposable…Continue

I am thankful for real candles
I have 2 lit beside me as I write this post. I’ve stayed away from them since Poppet was born. There are some great imitation ones, but none is truly as warming as a real candle flickering away!

As many of you already know, we waited 12 long years before Poppet came into our lives. If you are one of the many people trying to have a child, and don’t know why you can’t, you know how heartbreaking it can be! You know all too well the hope and then the pain associated with repeated failed attempts. You may have gone all the way in the treatments available, or you…Continue

As you all know, last week we gave our 12-year-old husky to a new home. Our reasons were varied. We travel A LOT, so she would spend days on end …Continue

I am thankful for Pencil Crayons
I am in the process of making personalized social media sharing icons for Pardon My Poppet. I wanted something that was hand-drawn and whimsical. I headed to the grocery store and picked up a pack of Joe+ Pencil Crayons. Just holding these freshly sharpened beauties puts a smile on my face!

There’s a settler type village just outside Fredericton, NB called “King’s Landing”. It is one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever been to. I’ve been there on just about every visit to New Brunswick I’ve been on, as long as it was open for the season. In the local inn, the King’s Head, they serve the most wonderful brown bread and salmon chowder. The last time we were there…Continue

I am thankful for Lodgenet
Do you know what I’m talking about? If you travel as much as we do you will! Many hotels use Lodgenet as their TV providers. They also provide the in-room movies that you can rent. They recently came out with an iPhone app. It allows me to do EVERYTHING on my iPhone. I can turn the tv on or off, I can order a move, I can even change channels without having to channel surf. If I want TLC, I just choose it from the list.…Continue

I am thankful for gDiapers
I LOVE using cloth diapers. It fits right into my whole “ideal” housewife, mum role in life. But I sure didn’t want to do cloth like my Mum did, so I LOVE my gDiapers! They are an awesome Poppet’s Pick all the way! I love the velcro, the snap in liners, the inserts, the STYLE, in short, everything about my…Continue

We drove up to Ottawa yesterday to miss the biggest snowfall of the year today. The biggest mistake we made was to drive through the middle of Toronto during rush hour. What were we thinking! And so, what should have been a 5 hour drive, turned into 8. But we arrived safely ahead of the storm. We settled into our hotel and when we woke up this morning…..nothing! Not a speck of snow. Not a speck until 3PM. Then, over the last hour and a half we have encountered what must be akin to…Continue

I am thankful for a REAL winter storm
I realized the other day that in less than 4 weeks it will officially be Spring. Wait, what? Spring?! When did that happen? This winter has been a little disappointing coziness wise to say the least. Every time it snowed it would be gone within a day or two. I mean, except for when we were on long drives, when it would storm in abundance, then the white stuff just wasn’t enough! As I watch the snow…Continue

I am thankful for the best kennel in the world!
Trust me, when I say that Forrestdale Kennels, located off Highway 6 South in Ontario, is the best kennel I really mean it! Brian Forrest has some of the best rates, best service and best Scottish accent you could ask for! He’s a jovial man, and always greeted our pup with, “Hi Nikita! Your room’s all ready for you!” Upon return we’d always hear, “She’s been…Continue

I am thankful for the nice couple who gave our pup a new home
I call her a pup, but she is our 12-year-old husky, Nikita, the first baby of the family. But she has been abiding in a small area in the front entryway since Poppet’s arrival.
To say watching her walk away was anything less than heart-breaking would be a lie. She has been…Continue

My best friend mentioned to me this past week-end “For someone who is doing Weightless Wednesday, your last few 365 Days of Blessings have been all about food!” She’s so right! Let’s see, there was Chocolate Chip Cookies, …Continue

I am thankful for papaya with lime
My sister introduced me to this for lunch a couple of weeks ago. Cut a ripe papaya, spritz on some fresh lime juice and completely refreshing indulgence awaits! The first papaya I bought was anything but ripe, so this time I erred on the side of almost mushy, but it was perfect!

I had grand plans of having a Tidy Tuesday post today on pantries. But things just weren’t falling into place and I’ve been working with a great tech on odesk.com to get Pardon My Poppet ready for even bigger and better things in order to serve all our readers better!
I’ve tried to keep everything familiar, only minor changes. There is now only one sidebar, and it is wider, so you do not have to hurt your index finger scrolling infinitely anymore! The post space was also made quite…Continue

Have you heard of Luved Clothing? Let’s just say I am totally, completely and utterly excited to introduce you to them! When I received my Leo top in Dusty Green I couldn’t have been more thrilled! I love opening a well wrapped package. Nothing like crinkly tissue paper wrapped around a little indulgence. To say I fell in luv with my new wardrobe essential, is an understatement. I wrote…Continue
