All in holiday

Don't forget to check out the 2nd Ave Sidewalk Sale!  Thursday, Friday & Saturday! Lots of deal and lots of people to see!

 The 2nd Ave sidewalk sale is a staple of Saskatoon's festive summer season and one of the busiest retail weekends of the year. The sale draws in thousands into our vibrant downtown and provides the backdrop for three says of fun in the heart of the city. 

If you need shoes... and you like them on sale... this is your place. My little guy and I walked around for a few hours today checking out the deals and totally enjoyed the ambiance and all the amazing food trucks. If you're looking for something to do this Friday night everything is open till 9:00 pm and open Friday & Saturday  9:30-5:30!

Make sure you check it out!

Saskatoon Staycation (or, My First Night Away From the Baby)

The plan was to go to Vegas. Not because I like Vegas all that much, mind you, but it's a quick trip and well, my husband Tyler wooed me on it by reminding me of Britney Spears' ongoing residency. But when Brit Brit's show schedule failed to line up with our planned travel dates, I threw a new idea out there: what about skipping the plane ride all together and instead opt for a staycation? The idea of staying in Saskatoon was appealing, what with our world-class restos, gorgeous boutique hotel, promising weather ahead, and close proximity to our baby. Not surprisingly, it was being near to our 16-month-old that really sealed the deal (we are still happy co-sleepers with her), but after our weekend staycay, I would recommend the experience to anyone. From zero airport time and one of the most beautiful riverbanks to flank a shopping district to food that rivals any big city (not to mention fantastic seasonal events and theatre productions you could include in your plans), a Saskatoon staycation is where it's at. Here's a peek at mine!
