WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

Camping Bucket List 2020


If someone would have told me 20 years ago, that I would end up being a camper, I wouldn't have believed it. My family (mom and dad) are not really outdoorsy people, we didn't go on family hikes or ski trips, or day trips to the lake. And I never wore running shoes as part of an outfit until I was living away at college and let's face it, was just too lazy to wear my platform Mary-Janes to class (yes I know, I'm totally dating myself here).

But now, fast-forward to being an adult (gasp!) and having a family of my own, I've learned to embrace the outdoors. My kids are BUSY, and that meant when they were really young, spending time outside rain or shine. And as they've gotten older, and they're easier to travel with, we have plunged ourselves knee-deep into camping.

We tried tent camping once - epic fail. And it took several years later to finally try again, although this time, we splurged for a trailer. First, a pop-up tent trailer, which we loved but quickly realized we needed something bigger. Now we have a hybrid trailer which is the best of both worlds. Sleeping in tent end beds, but we have a kitchen and bathroom too which is so helpful.

We've visited quite a few private and provincial campgrounds in Ontario the past few summers and we're gearing up to take the trailer out again this year - if this pandemic ever ends!

This summer, if we can break out of this quarantine/self-isolation era we currently live in, I'd like to visit the following places:


We camped here a few years ago, and have always wanted to go back. This year we have tentative plans to visit the park again in August with a few other families. Cross your fingers for us!


Other places I want to visit (will be our first time):


What are you travel or camping plans this summer?
