About Me 

I am Mrs. B.  I’m a thirty something busy mommy of 18 month old twin boys and the wife to the most amazing and supportive husband who is my best friend.  I am a stay-at-home mom living in Toronto.

More About Me

  • I have a BA in Sociology and a BASc in Nutrition Sciences.
  • In my “spare time” (a.k.a. nap time) I love to cook for my family.
  • I love cook books, cooking magazines, cooking blogs and cooking television shows.  I should be a gourmet chef for the amount of time I spend I’ve spent reading recipes and watching people cook.
  • I love taking recipes and making them healthier.
  • My philosophy on food is all about balance and moderation. I don’t believe in dieting, but rather changing your lifestyle to one that you can HAPPILY maintain.  For me this includes eating birthday cake!
  • My 2 favorite things to eat are salads and birthday cake.
  • I LOVE birthday cake!  But I’m very specific about it.  It has to be white or marble cake, I will not eat chocolate cake, and the icing MUST be vanilla.  I may even take a second piece if the icing has been sprayed a bright blue or pink color.  For some reason those colors just make it taste better.  Who’s with me on this?
  • I love the smell of icing so much that I collect icing-scented hand creams, body lotions and air fresheners.  Of course smelling icing all day makes me want to eat birthday cake.  I promise this will be the last mention of cake…for this post.
  • I hate exercise.  I contemplate exercising on a weekly basis.  Sadly I’ve come to the conclusion it probably isn’t going to happen…at least not anytime soon since I spend my days chasing around the twinadoes.
  • I don’t drink alcohol.  I just don’t like the taste so I don’t think it’s worth the calories.
  • I CAN’T watch a movie more than once.
  • I don’t like to use kitchen appliances.  The time it takes to clean them negatively outweighs their helpfulness.
  • I menu plan EVERY week AND I enjoy it.
  • l love going to the grocery store.  I could spend hours there.  I especially love finding great new healthy products.
  • I hate when people call my house during the sacred nap time or after the kids go to bed.  I’m not nice to these people.  They won’t even get a “hello”, but instead will simply hear me hang up the phone on them.  Why don’t I just take the phone off the hook you might ask, because I ALWAYS forget, but I’m a mom of twins so I’m allowed to forget the same thing day after day.
  • I don’t like having someone in my home helping me with my kids for the sole reason that I enjoy acting like a complete crazy person entertaining them and I can’t do this when other people are around…except for my parents and husband.
  • When I was 16 I got a heart-shaped tattoo in a place only my husband can see (think care bears) which I completely regret because I fear what it will look like in 20 years.
  • I hate when people come up to me and make ridiculous comments about having twins.  For example, when I’m by myself and I have a kid in each arm, both of whom are screaming their heads off because they’re hungry, and I’m rummaging through my bag looking for anything that could pass for food, I don’t appreciate random people stopping to say things like “they must keep you busy” or “you have your hands full”…clearly I’m busy and my hands are full so leave me alone.
  • I love vacuuming because I can’t stand the feeling of crumbs on my feet.  You can only imagine how many times a day I vacuum since the twinadoes started walking and eating actual food.
  • I feel bad that my husband works so hard and is missing all the bonding time.  At the same time, I love that at the end of the day the kids will fight to sit on MY lap.  That’s awful, I know.
  • I couldn’t be happier with my life.  I love all the people around me and I feel very blessed for everything I have.
