Spring Cleaning Is Happening

If you are a regular Tales of Mommyhood follower, then you are likely aware how much I dislike cleaning. I have absolutely no motivation to clean (unless we are having company) and will happily do just about anything else to procrastinate.

A friend of mine was hosting a Spring Cleaning Challenge on facebook, so I decided to join in and give it a shot. I though if I had a group to be accountable to, it would help.

I was right. I have been on a cleaning streak since joining the challenge.  It started off with doing a deep clean of the bathrooms (one task each day for a few days) then the laundry room, and now working on the kitchen (again, 1 task/ day).

Breaking it down into small chunks has made such a difference. Since I can happily put cleaning off, it always end up being a big job for me. I need to get into the habit of doing a few small tasks daily, instead of becoming overwhelmed with the entire house needing top to bottom clean.

Also, spring weather has finally found us and I have been able to turn off the heat in the house! Not really spring cleaning related at all, but it makes me happy.

Happy spring!

Celebrate Spring With Rice Krispies {giveaway}

prize may not be exactly as shown

Spring is here, and the weather has finally caught up to the change in seasons.  Easter is coming up, and Kellogg's wants to help you celebrate.  They have just launched their Spring Rice Krispies cereal. The same cereal we know and love, with spring colours added in.  You can find it at your local grocery store, and they also have Rice Krispies Bars available with the spring colours.

Let Kellogg's into your Easter celebrations. Grab a box of the new Rice Krispies Cereal and make some Easter or spring themed Rice Krispies treats yourself.


You can use the guide to make some easy nests, or you can come up with your own creation (an egg, a bunny, a tulip).

What would you make? Kellogg's wants to supply one of my readers with their very own spring themed Rice Krispies treat kit.  Simply fill out the form below for your chance to win. Open to Canadian residents 18+, ends on April 20th, 2017.

Good luck!

The Canadian Tulip Festival Celebrates It's 65th Anniversary #giveaway



The Canadian Tulip Festival is back again in 2017 and is celebrating its 65th anniversary! This May you can join in the special festivities that are taking place in the Nation’s Capital.

The Tulip Festival is family friendly with many great events taking place for all ages. As with other years, you can spend time listening to live music, watching artists work and enjoying the magnificent beauty that more than 250,000 Tulips bring to Commissioners Park at Dow's Lake.

There are great photo's to be had and memories to make here. I remember taking Mr. J when he was about 10 months old. Trying to keep him from touching the flowers was difficult, but it was a lot of fun.

The National Capital Commission has offered up the Canada 150 Tulip, which is the official tulip for Canada's 150th anniversary. The Canada 150 tulips will be featured at this location, as well as the Queen Juliana Gift Bed.
