Blackberry Pear Goat Cheese Salad with Candied Pecans & Balsamic Dijon Dressing

July 31, 2017

The count down is on!  Mairead and I are heading to Cape Breton for a few weeks tomorrow.  Aaron will follow us a week behind, but we are all looking forward to getting out of here for a while, especially me!  I’ll take any excuse to leave this place haha. I should be packing right now instead of on here…..but I don’t want to.  As my family can attest, I am not a light packer.  I don’t know the meaning…

Watermelon Grapefruit Detox Flush

July 20, 2017

Watermelon is one of those summertime essentials.  I think we all have memories of hot summer days spitting out seeds and juice dripping down our chins.  It’s definitely a favorite treat in our house, but I came to love watermelon for a whole new reason in the hours after giving birth to Mairead. Don’t worry, I’m not going to go into detail about my birth story, it’s not for everyone’s ears anyway.  It was too early, dire and brought me the greatest…

Handmade Wildflower Seed Paper

July 11, 2017

This week Mairead is at Whiz Kids Science Camp!  Do you know what that means?  It means I am walking in circles around my house because I have no clue what to do with myself!  I haven’t had this much time to myself since before she was born.  I don’t like it. It’s only a day camp but so far my little Einstein is enjoying it.  The early mornings are also giving her a little taste of what it will be like to…

Summertime Lemonade Stand

July 5, 2017

We’re in business!  The past two weekends, Mairead has been raking in the cash with her new lemonade shoppe, one quarter at time.  It’s been the latest hangout for all the kids on the block.   Of course, they have all had to try their hand at customer service.  There are some serious business men and women in the making on our street! Our neighbours were generously supportive of Mairead’s new business.  Our mail carrier and even two RCMP officers purchased some…..but not…

Naturally Sweetened Oolong Iced Tea

June 22, 2017

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE tea.  Hot, cold, 3 days old, I drink a shit ton of tea!  Ginger is my all time favorite, earl gray coming in at a close second and various peppermint versions at third place.  I even make my own homemade honey and cinnamon tea that I swear cures everything but the plague.  However in the summer months, I find I drink a lot less tea and as a result, my overall gut health…

Chocolate Quinoa Sea Salt Bites

June 15, 2017

TGIF (tomorrow)!  My day was packed with a to-do list as long as my leg (hey now, no short jokes) and it’s almost 10 o’clock and this is the first time I sat down all day.  Anyone who says stay-at-home Mom’s do nothing all day can eat it!  I have been on the go non-stop. I have been really sporadic with my posts lately, I apologize for that.  My laptop is giving me some trouble and Mairead and her friends have been…

Reloved Vintage Dining Chairs

June 9, 2017

Those of you who have been with me here at Three Happy Folk since the beginning might remember the early stages of this project.  This blog began over two years ago (a little earlier than I was ready to) to meet a deadline of a contest that I was hoping to enter as a blogging contributor.  I laugh at myself now looking back and how little I knew about the time and effort a (good) blog actually requires. Yet I was…

Strawberry Spinach Caprese Salad

May 31, 2017

It’s official, Mairead is a big kid!  This week we celebrated her graduation from preschool.  They had the sweetest little ceremony complete with gowns and caps, then a party with her classmates.  I’d be lying if I said that it didn’t tug at the heartstrings a little that these days have some to an end.  Now on to big kid school!  Crazy. After all the celebrating, I took Mairead to a spray park this afternoon to cool off.  Funny story….last…

Just5 Beauty Skin Care Review

May 26, 2017

*This post has been edited from its original version.  The company has since changed their name from Flynn & Sage to Conscience Beauty Lab but their beauty products are still the same great quality.  I still recommend checking them out 🙂 Hi folks!  I’m taking a twist here on the blog this week and sharing something that my new friends at Conscience Beauty Lab have in store.  They reached out to people willing to try out some new products and…

Watermelon Citrus Salad with Fresh Mint & Honey

May 23, 2017

I am not looking for any kind of congratulatory ratification here but I have been kicking ass in the clean eating department lately.  Part of this is due to the hot weather and me not wanting to stand in front of the stove and also to Aaron being away, therefore, Mairead and I have been surviving on a mostly raw diet.  But it has been great; my skin looks healthier, I have so much more energy, and guys, I have…
