Come to the #LetsTalkBums Twitter Party!


Here we are and our summer is almost at an end. I do blog a lot about what our family is up to, which includes much travel near and far - and this summer was no exception. We took in some great events and day trips over the past couple of months. This may sound simple, yet for a family of 5 - is anything ever a simple undertaking? It doesn't matter if it's your first road trip or the billionth, some things are … [Read more...]

Always Epiphanie


I think back to all the items I've reviewed here on My Organized Chaos {6 years worth!}, and wish I could easily do a follow up on those reviews. I think it'd be helpful for my readers to know which products stood the test of time, and which didn't. This is information I'd love to know myself when searching online. Alas, that would literally take forever {but you can always send me an email if you do have any questions, … [Read more...]

Toy Story of Terror now available on Blu-ray/DVD


Toy Story is one of our all-time favourites and I'm pretty sure it'll remain that way for many years. The first feature-length computer-animated film and the first theatrical film produced by Pixar - it broke molds and raised the bar for future animated films. Admit it, you can't resist the characters in Toy Story! Yet, somehow we missed seeing Toy Story of Terror when it premiered last year. Luckily, you can … [Read more...]

UNO & Cody Simpson VIP Experience #giveaway


If you mention the name 'Cody Simpson' to any tween and you're sure to be hit with squeals, chatter and a lot of excitement. That's my oldest daughters reaction too.  She is such a Cody Simpson fan-girl, and when Isabelle and her friends get together - watch out. Listening in on the conversations that include 'so cute' and 'love his songs' makes me chuckle. Yet, haven't we all been there?  I … [Read more...]

This is Gross

alberta hail

We were recently hit with quite the storm, completely out of nowhere on a beautiful hot day. The storm blew in faster than I could shut the windows. The fierce wind picked up much dirt and covered everything in the house. Gross. Most of my tall aspen trees couldn't fight against the wind and uprooted. Ugh. Then. The hail started. We didn't get it as bad as some, causing damage to cars … [Read more...]

Parenting 101 Giveaway

CD Prize Pack

When I was pregnant with my first, I dived right into everything I considered Parenting 101. I read many books, searched online, went to classes and talked with friends that were parents. I couldn't gather enough information, trying to prepare myself for what was to come. Looking back, I really stressed myself out a lot. I was an Auntie at age 3 and had been around babies and kids my whole life. Yet for some reason I … [Read more...]

Everyday Moments: Captured and Shared


My photos are my most prized possessions, each one illustrates everyday moments captured for a lifetime and to be honest, I really don't know what I'd do without my photos – they are that precious to me. The pictures I have from years ago are only printed and in albums, dozens of them fill a bookcase in our home. The most recent ones are stored digitally {Facebook, Instagram, files and drives}, yet I'm sad to say that … [Read more...]
