GAME OF FIRSTS

Run Like You Stole Something

It’s been an interesting year on the running front. I personally hate running, or at least I did until very recently. Lee and I decided that it would be a good thing for us to do together. Lee enjoys running, whereas I have not enjoyed it much. At all. But it seemed like a good […]

Candy Crack Cookies

Look out people, there is a new kind of crack in town. Irresponsibly yet intentionally, this new crack is in the form of an innocent cookie. I give you… PC’s Candy Cane “Eat the Middle First” Cookies. First I heard about these cookies by word of mouth. Not just any mouth, but my boss who […]

Wow, ok so a fair bit has happened since our last update, but going to limit this entry to our trip to our visit Quebec City.  We decided on Q-Town because none of us had been there before, and it is a Year of Firsts after all, so why not. Plus, there was a total […]
