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).

Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach


A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live. 

I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them. 

I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures. 

You can learn more about these houses here:

I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo.


This home was stunning in person, the picture doesn't do it justice. 


The kids wanted to sit on these stools so bad but I wouldn't let them! I had to remind them we were the too look not touch. But I'm not going to lie, I would have loved to have a seat at this super cute tiki bar with a cold drink in my hand!


The artwork and decorative touches on some of these homes were just amazing and so cute. I couldn't resist snapping a few shots of this "Just Breathe" sign. And what a fitting reminder to just stop and breathe while we're still navigating through this pandemic. COVID-19, I'm over you. You can go away now!


We finished the day with a home cooked meal (kids helped Nonna make dinner), a family UNO game, and night swimming. Who says you can't have fun during COVID-19?


What have you been doing to keep busy?
