About Pixels and Popcorn

Pixels and Popcorn began with a maternity photoshoot in March 2016 by this husband and wife team. Chris was the photographer for their sixth baby bump photos. {I may be biased here...but I think he did a wonderful job! -Sara}



Chris is an average father and husband. He enjoys many things from electronics, movies, games of any variety from card to video games. He also enjoys varieties of tabletop rpgs. He's more of a collector. He likes the reads but will likely never play all the ones he owns.

Sara is a wife to Chris & SAHM to their kiddos. She loves writing mostly real-life tales. She dabbles in bible journaling, photography, cupcake making, and drinking coffee ;)

Together they are raising their family of 6 beautiful children, in a small city in Saskatchewan, Canada. It is "beautifully chaotic" in the words of Sara. Lots of prayers and patience go into running a household. Their hopes for this blog is to document their real-life adventures through gaming and everyday adulting.

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...NSI

Good Morning!

Today I am back with another Trim Healthy Mama blurb! I am a mama who is trying to run a large household. If you've read our previous posts on budgeting, you'll understand the need for this article. Today I am talkin' to you about NSI. No Special Ingredients while on Trim Healthy Mama.

If you want some more in depth FAQ's about THM, go here. They answer some all too familiar questions regarding this lifestyle change.

NSI are super helpful in this way of eating. It's true that there are some ingredients that come in handy - Glucomannan, Stevia - but those are things that last a long time and are beneficial to some of the recipes.

Oats - we go through a lot of oats/oatmeal. Porridge is a great breakfast (E) that we add egg whites to for added protein. Topped with berries, apples, yogurt...quick and easy breakfast that satisfies the family.

Eggs - eggs are a beautiful S (satisfying) They do in a pinch, and are great for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and yes, s…
