Opening Night for Stars for Saskatchewan - Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band


I had the privilege of watching my very first concert hosted by the Yorkton Arts Council. (Thank you Brenda!!!) As a mama to six children, a night out to enjoy a passion of mine was truly a blessing!

 The Yorkton Arts Council's mission statement is to "... provide(s) opportunities to engage in the arts through inspiration, education and entertainment." And that they did. The show tonight thrilled, educated and entertained the crowd!

Stars for Saskatchewan has an amazing line up this 2017-2018 year & I am looking forward to attending them all! Go check out them out and buy your tickets! ;)


Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band wowed the crowd tonight at the Anne Portnuff Theatre with their 'Oh Canada, We Sing for Thee'! Canadian Tour 2017. They have 28 shows planned from coast to coast. I'm glad Yorkton made that list! These beautiful, talented musicians and singers made us all proud to be Canadian. Tasteful humor in between songs had the crowd laughing out loud at times, and nodding in agreement at others. The cover tunes were brilliantly brought to life as Leisa Way donned attire that coordinated with the artists, and the band had the audience singing and clapping right along!

Each member brought a degree of uniqueness to the stage; voice, drums, piano, guitar, violin/fiddle, harmonica, wooden flute...it was truly enjoyable by people of all ages. Leisa, if you ever read this, it was a pleasure to meet with you. You have a beautiful heart! Good luck to the entire band on your next couple months of travelling throughout our beautiful country!

Thank you to the Yorkton Art Council for all the work that goes into these events. It really does make me proud to be apart of this city, and to know that we (the city) are privileged to have such a spectacular team and board members who make this come together each year.




























Cheers,

Local Fashion Show of the Season

Sarah Jakubiec of LoSa Chic Boutique & Megan Propp of Pulse Apparel here in Yorkton, hosted an amazing fundraising event last evening....the cause? October is cancer awareness month and all the proceeds went to the Canadian Cancer Society and a precious little girl named Serenity who is fighting this battle. How cool is that when local businesses get together and come up with such a fantastic plan to help lighten the load for families!? Hats off to both of you and everyone who participated with this event!



Roughly 50+ ladies gathered in a shop on Broadway (next to LoSa) for a night of fun, food, & a fashion show! The models strut their stuff on the "catwalk" featuring attire from both stores. Raffles and a silent auction also played a part in helping Serenity and her family out with various expenses that come with treatment and travelling.

The theme for the evening was Business Casual & Casual. The outfits were tasteful and sophisticated...flower prints, faux leath…

YNAB after 4 months

Four Month Update
We have been using YNAB for a little over 4 months now, I won't lie and say we are rolling in the dough and that using this software has made us all of a sudden have a ton of money in the bank. What I can say though is that we: Have a more solid plan to pay down our credit cards and have paid down more than $2,000 in credit card debt between the 3 cards (half that on one card alone).Paid a huge (un)expected electric bill ($400 extra). Were able to budget for a little under $450 in dental bills for the kids (in about 6 weeks time) and will continue adding to that budget category so we will have the money for their next appointments in 6 months.Started putting money in our Christmas gifts category which gave us a short time to budget for this expected expense that comes up every year.Have been able to tithe. Have a better understanding of where our money is going each month.All this without going into the overdraft since we started in July.
YNAB Reports Now that we …

Trim Tuesday Talks - Let's talk white bread!

Page 242 is a game changer. Low Carb bread has been revolutionized by the Trim Healthy Mama sisters!
What am I talking about? Wonderful White Blender Bread! WWBB as you'll see it floating around the world wide web.
I was definitely skeptical trying out this new recipe found on page 242 of the new cookbook Trim Healthy Table. I've had some blunders in the kitchen with low carb recipes....although I am definitely getting the hang of it now!! Really, when I started THM back in '13 I really hated trying to make a low carb anything work....bread, cookies, cakes...but now?? As long as the budget allows, I LOVE BAKING THIS STUFF! {sweets, breads, etc}
This WWBB stayed fresh in my fridge for 5 days, yes 5, without spoiling...it lasted that long because 1. it was only me eating it....sorry not sharing! and 2. I wanted to have enough to last me the week for quick breakfast options and lunches!
I used this bread for toast with eggs, grilled cheese sandwich, toast with peanut butter for a …
