The Really Special Ones

Everyone has had that couch, that coffee table, that carpet and possibly one of those outfits in the photo.

But I’ll throw it out there and say that few have or have had a ‘Stac’ in their lives.

Stacey — Stace, Stac, Aunty Stac, Cee Cee, Stak Naks…and

Stacey Lynn to her Mom.

We’ve been friends since before whatever age we were in the picture and since she used to have to wait for me to finish my piano lessons.

She’s stuck around even when I went through a phase of being a complete meanie and made her carry my backpack home in elementary school and she’s still in my life after I would also make her listen to…


Being Consistent With Whatever

To me, partaking in the act of consistency over time means doing what you committed to do even when you don’t feel like it.

Doing something because you decided to do it, to follow through with it until the end — regardless of circumstance — is what the last 365 days has brought to my life.

I’ve previously had a bit of experience with consistency in action.

Training and competing in a bodybuilding figure show, getting my body and mind ready for a 1/2 Ironman, being a competitive figure skater in my youth, quitting drinking…one day at a time!…and …


Gotta Have ’Em, Gotta Love ‘Em

It’s March 8.

And unless you’re stuck under a rock somewhere, if you have any social media accounts whatsoever, you know that today is International Women’s Day.

I love seeing all the Facebooks posts — some hilarious, loud and amazing, others emotion-filled and quietly beautiful.

There isn’t anything new I can bring to the table that isn’t already out there since the rest of you have already posted and said x10 and more of what I could conjure up.

I will say that I love and admire each and every one my mother figures, sisters, nieces, aunts, cousins, grandmothers, in-laws and friends (and…


Finally Found Our Favs

I’ve talked about my favourite things on various posts but I don’t think I’ve designated an entire blog to just condiments.

They’re an important part of the Webb household so I feel they deserve the spotlight tonight.

Most North American parents would agree that ketchup is a must in any household with kids in it. Mayo and mustard too. Then there’s probably at least one variation of hot sauce, a BBQ sauce, a jam of sorts — most likely strawberry, Braags or soy sauce and almost definitely at bottle of teriyaki sits somewhere in that fridge.

Costco is Costco and they’re famous for one day having something in stock and everyone loving it, and then the next week poof! …


Ding Dong Daisy

This pic…she’s partied-out for sure.

This is Daisy until she realizes she’s actually awake…then it’s game on.

We hear of people having ‘morning routines’ but does your dog have one?Daisy does. And it’s next level cute…but also totally annoying.

She sleeps between Jeff and I at night in a donut shape.

Occasionally, she will snap/rabid-bark at our feet when we move in the middle of the night because she’s ultra offended that we are disrupting her beauty rest and thinks WE are taking over HER space on the bed.

In the morning Daisy wakes us up by trying to lick our faces, jumping all over…


Phantom Sensations

Well, better late than never to get this done…3:10 am and ya, I’m calling it Friday night still.

Side note…what a cool thing it is to be able to partner with friends, share their stories and have a way to give back in a bigger way.

Again, thank you to everyone for your support, encouragement, input, feedback and willingness to share your journey with LIVN GIVN.

We appreciate it so much!

The At-Home Momfit

Jordan slides, no bra (not that I need one anymore), a grocery bag carrying my wallet, keys and phone, a flossing stick in hand, p.j’s still on along with a winter jacket to appear sensical in the car from the waist up…

…is what I often wear to drive the boys to school and what my profile for online meetings look like.

I’d say that’s a fairly typical work-from-home ‘Momfit’ — but it may just be me.

Sometimes I go sans jacket around the house but usually it stays on as the necessity of going in and out of the house happens often to take the garbage out, chase Daisy when she runs across the road or get the mail.

Either way, I’m fine with it. Jeff may not be and if he has a problem with it, he is kind enough…


Migrating And Making Nests

This blog is taking things back to the ‘Some Stuff To Consider’ theme.

Today, I’m talking about birds. And not just any birds…birds of prey.

Eagles have been one of my favourite animals since forever. They symbolize strength, power, courage, focus and guidance. Eagles are at the top of their food chain with the largest recorded wingspan of 9 feet, 4 inches. They are large, mighty and majestic.

There’s just something special about seeing an eagle in action — whether soaring high or swooping down on the river for a fish. A favourite place of mine to visit and see eagles in their glory is Brackendale, B.C., especially in the fall.

Blessings & Favour

Sometimes it’s hard to see past the thickness of life, through the heavy, through the muck and the fog.

Like the sun on my face as I write this and the amazing horizon in the stock pic on this blog, each day there can be beauty from any amount of ashes.

There are various people that take credit for the famous quote that says, ‘What you focus on grows’…or something similar along those lines. Regardless who said it first, I like it, it’s a good one.

And it’s been proven true over and over again in my life.

Whether it’s regarding relationships, a job, health finances etc., what we say, do and think matters…obviously. …


The Beat Of Life

When I was younger, I wasn’t always a fan of having to practice piano.

15 or 30 minutes a day, even if I had friends over, I had to sit and practice my chords, songs and drills so I could be ready for my next lesson.

Though I didn’t enjoy it then, throughout the years I have understood why learning music is such a privilege and how important it is to have an appreciation for beautiful melodies.

In elementary school I remember singing Neil Diamond’s Song Sung Blue in the citywide choir recital and we also learned folk songs such as The Ballad Of Davy Crockett, Kumbaya and Home On The Range.
