And the border crossing wait begins… Luckily I have Gerry & Travel Bunny to keep me company
First step in #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust is 7am coffee!
Second step in #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust @TimHortons for MORE coffee.
Florida or Bust, or possibly bustin’ to go to Florida.
We’ll well past excited now. We’ve cooked the meals, we’ve hugged the ‘rents, we’ve shoveled and shuffled and shuddered in the ice storm (granted nowhere nearly as much as many of our friends!)
Since we’re going, we’re eager to get going. [...]
Xmas 1971 all curled up and trying to stay up … Or so says my mom when I asked what year this was. #tbt
My lazy morning starts with coffee brightened with reindeer milk, a clean kitchen thanks to my mother-in-law, and Apple Crumb Cake.
Using julienned apple, Gay Lea Gold Sour Cream, only 1 egg (oops), with some other lex-mods the cake was inspired by Martha Stewart’s New York crumb cake (the one on her site. is not the same as the one in [...]
My family is nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of roast beast dance through my head. It’s bunny in the tree, and me with my cup, planning it out, on what we will sup.
And the final version with the bamboozlers and the tintinglers thanks to my lovely and talented mom! #unsweetenedca
Starting our Xmas tree decoration. Thinking I may also be done our Xmas tree decoration.
Not sure if this is minimalist, but is certainly deconstructed.
It’s the darkest day of the year, and there are threats of ice storms, but that won’t stop us from walking around in the dark banging our drums and shaking our noisemakers. Yes, I am forcing my little family back out into to the cold to march around Allan Gardens holding candles, making noise, and collecting holiday stares to chas [...]
I know I already told you I’m headed Disney-bound, but the trip doesn’t stop there.
We’re driving down and spending a couple of days in West Palm Beach area as well! Or as my research shows The Palm Beaches.
Yes, we’ll be in the Palm Beaches for New Years Eve. Can’t wait to see what trouble we’ll get into [...]
In honour of my mom’s arrival today to start the #xmas festivities, I’m using a photo of her taken in the mid-sixties for my #tbt My mom is, and was, beautiful!
It’s time for a life hack and while for most people that means walking out of an office, to me it probably means walking back into one.
I have spent the last 15 years running my own businesses, creating products, leading teams, building online communities, mentoring, writing, editing and publishing books, and consulting. On the side I raised [...]

One of the knives I was interested in trying as part of the work I’m doing with Cooking with CUTCO was one of the CUTCO Carvers. Carving knives, especially at Christmas, have a special place in my heart.
We used to go to my grandparent’s house for Xmas and my grandmother would present a perfectly roasted turkey [...]
HoHoTO in 2 days on Dec 19th!?!? Really? HoHoTO is always one of the best parties in town, and this year will be no exception but it has come on so fast. I guess it’s because because I’m not right in the thick of it. I’ve been pretty quiet about HoHoTO this year, at least quiet compared to years past.
As you may know, the original band of [...]
After 48 years, we’re going to Disney. Walt Disney World in Florida to be exact. We’ve spent a couple of weeks doing our research, going through the site, talking to friends, talking to each other. I’ve created a Pinterest board, and I’ve reviewed the Disney Food Blog – disneyfoodblog.com
It’s overwhelmi [...]
