Have you heard? The mini series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life debuted on Netflix November 25th. I’ve never religiously watched the show, but I would catch on the a few episodes here and there. Netflix just revealed new data that proves TV shows, like Gilmore Girls, help moms and daughters build a stronger relationship. Since I do not have a girl yet, and my mother is far away, I invited my cousin ( total die hard fan) home so we can Netflix and chill this weekend. I am hoping she could explain parts I might have missed when the show was running. What are you up to ? Have you done any shopping on Black Friday?
I was looking through my blog today, and I realized that I hadn’t posted a favourite posts ( now Weekend Reads) for ages. To be honest with you, I’ve not had time to do a lot of reading the last few months. A lot of work to do and life also happened. I’ve decided at the end of last month to dedicate at least a few hours every Sunday to reading other blogs.

Here’s a list of family halloween movies that our family’s been through. Hopefully, you’ll find some excellent options in there for you and your young ones:

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela
I am that mom that is always preaching to her children how important it is to brush their teeth. Oh yes, I even took it to the next level by showing them a photo of rotten teeth. What they don’t know is that mommy sometimes does not practice what she preaches.
Alright, it’s confession time. Read More »
