The most difficult part of being away from Family is when you have to start a new tradition of your own….
A New place…
A New life….
A New beginning……
This Ramadan is another “NEW” and will be very different for me…..
No Twice a week Futoor at my Mom’s, no hanging out to the wee hours with my sister M playing cards and eating “Hab” (seeds). Read the rest of this entry
Disney seems to really understand me….
I really wish that my girls always keep the kid in them as I believe in everything magical and I still find the wonder in all things Disney.
My father’s (May he rest in Peace) favorite ride at Disneyland was It’s a Small World. I still tear up every time I hear that song.
Even though we still haven’t done the Disney family trip yet I do believe that every Disney movie reminds me of my inner child.
Now with that said I feel like there’s so much more to every song from every Disney movie I’ve watched.
I have emotionally gotten attached to singing “Let it go” from the movie Frozen for every situation in life that was out of my hands and can’t change. I’m sure every one can relate to that on many levels.
Well I’ve evolved from having “Let it go” as my soundtrack to “You’re Welcome” from the movie Moana!
Disney can always find a song from Disney that truly makes me feel better or express my emotion. It’s a fact Disney gets me!!
Making Life Memorable with every Disney Soundtrack!
There’s always something uplifting about having a Sunny Day.
You just have to smile.
No sunny day should ever be spent frowning, that’s heresy!!!
I have a big thing about sunglasses….it’s always a challenge to find the perfect stylish sun-glass that fits my ity bity face!!
I had posted on my Instagram a late night picture of what I was going to make to tame my sweet craving….
Now i’m big on desserts and baking but at such a late hour i didn’t have the luxury of time and wanted to just have something sweet…. That takes less than 20 minutes to be devoured!
First Measure all the required ingredients…. You’ll need
Next step is basically Mix ALL ingredients in a food processor until it begins to fold in on itself creating a dough like look.
Using a tablespoon or a mini ice cream scooper ( My personal choice!) Drop the balls of the dough onto parchment paper. ( you could just eat scoops out just like that if you want too!! )
Optional Garnish: To fancy up the balls you can sprinkle the balls with more lime zest.
Freeze the balls for at least 5 minutes if you’re in a hurry….ideally 10-15 minutes will make them completely firm
At this point you have two choices…. Eat the whole batch (totally doable!!! I know) or be a little more sensible and have a few and store the remaining in a ziploc or air tight container in the freezer…..
** You can totally substitute Lemon for the lime!
Making Life Memorable with sweet bites
For the first time since I became a Mom I can honestly say I have had a “Real” Mother’s Day…..
I mean sure I got the little cute things that the girls made at pre-school, or kindergarten or school….
An extra hug here or there…..
But not a real official celebration of me
I think the girls were always in some activity and the importance of celebrating was secondary…..
I am thankful that I do get my “me time” once in a while but today I would like to share My Mother’s day Wins of 2017
So here goes….
MY Mother’s Day List

How did you spend mother’s day????
On this Mother’s day my family focused on me by Making life Memorable as a Mother
Big Shout Out to @youbabymemummy from you baby me mummy for my list inspirations!!!
After the rush of the week there’s always the weekend dilemma of what to do with the kids and how much is too much.
Now the most important thing in my view is always “less electronics” and I’m so happy that the weather now is so nice (even is it RAINS!) that we can begin to do things in the great outdoors.
I therefore logged on and began my search. I wanted to find what’s going on around Edmonton and it didn’t take long before I clicked to To Do Canada. I was so happy to find a great list of suggestions.
Want some inspiration for this weekend in Edmonton…I got you!
