Erin tied the knot!

Hello OCM readers! Erin here. So... it's been a little over two months since me and my man got hitched. It's been a daze of a summer for us, and I realized I am a little behind on sharing a look at our big day. It was to say the least, one of the best day of my life. As it should be right?

Who doesn't love having a well equipped home bar?! It's always good to be prepared at home when having guests over and I find it's nice to offer a beverage. To offer that beverage having a well stocked home bar is essential. Saskatoon's Suzanne Johnston paired up with her friends to create your very own home bar check list.

Sensory Goodness - DIY

I happen to have one of the busiest toddlers on earth. Like.... super fricken busy.  You name it... my child wants to either push it, poke it, rip it down, play with it, look at it, touch it.... all at once.  

I had come across a photo on Instagram that intigued me. A handy dad had made a board filled with devices to touch, switches, buttons to push etc. I thought to myself right away I MUST make this!! So I took to google to get ideas, read up on the importance of sensory play for kids and made a stop at Home Depo for supplies.  Turns out Dollarama is a great place for sensory items as well! 

Take a peek on how to make your own sensory board!
