#NewYearNewView with Netflix Canada! #StreamTeam

So we are in the last week of January. How are your New Years resolutions going? I made four. I've broken three.

To be positive, the one I've kept is taking my lunch four days a week, and treating myself only one day a week. As opposed to taking my lunch once a week which I was doing in 2015.

The three I've failed at:

Don't keep pop in the house. (I failed so miserably that I made an order with Pizza Pizza that was pretty much Coke being delivered to my house last week when Hannah was sick).

Post to my blog once a week. This is my first post of 2016. And we are in the fourth week of it.

And last, but certainly not least, is to take back my Netflix. There's going to be more shows watched in the "Sarah" profile than there is in the "Hannah" one.

Holiday Watching with Netflix Canada #Giveaway #NowOnNetflixCA #StreamTeam

The holidays are a time to spend with friends and family. They often provide some much needed down time. My idea of some good down time is streaming, cuddling and laughing together.

Netflix has a bunch of holiday movies and holiday episodes of your favourite shows.

Habitat for Humanity Gingerbread Build with Bounty #PGmom

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Last weekend Hannah and I had the opportunity to participate in the 13th Annual Habitat for Humanity GTA Gingerbread Build at the Ontario Science Centre. She might not be old enough to build actual houses, but Hannah was amazing at decorating a gingerbread house for a great cause.

As the Presenting Sponsor of Gingerbread Build 2015, Bounty once again makes Habitat GTA a part of its holiday celebration. 100% percent of the funds raised through Habitat's Gingerbread Build go directly to building more Habitat homes for families in need of affordable housing in the GTA.

You can still participate in the Gingerbread Build - you can purchase a kit to put together at home, or purchase a kit for a family in a shelter to put together. For more details, visit http://gingerbreadbuild.weebly.com/build.html.

Right now every donation to Habitat for Humanity will be matched dollar-for-dollar by P&G until December 31st, 2015. For more details, and to donate, visit here.

Cleaning for surprise guests this holiday with P&G #PGmomGiveaway

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

This season guest may drop by last minute. I try to keep the condo as clean as possible, but having a three-year old means sometimes it's not as tidy as I would like. So when we get short notice that someone is stopping by, I immediately rely to Swiffer and Febreze.

We don't own a dog, so crumbs can be a daily issue...especially because sometimes my daughter plays while she snacks. Thankfully we have the Swiffer Sweep and Trap - I LOVE the fact I can collect particles AND clean at the same time!

Ways to Give Back this Season including Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys #Kelloggers #Giveaway

Yesterday, my Mom, Hannah and I were at our local Walmart when we saw an interesting sight. There was a TTC bus parked right at the entrance - this is unusual because the entrance is far from the street where a normal bus would stop. My Mom bought some toys that Hannah donated to Stuff the Bus and we tried to explain to her that not everyone is as lucky as we are during the holidays.

Make. Share. Give.

The Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys program helps bring a smile to children in need by encouraging Canadians to make a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and share a picture of it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the #TreatsforToys hashtag. For every image uploaded from now until December 21, 2015, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army to buy a toy for a child in need during the festive season.
