Favorite Thing for Your Kids

The Fisher-Price Healthy Care Booster Seat is very handy — portable, lightweight and easy to use. Whether at a friend’s house, a restaurant or a park the booster makes meal time easy.

Favourite Thing For You

During the winter months, I can not live without my heating pad from Escents. I simply put it in the microwave for a few minutes and it holds heat for ages. It keeps me warm and toasty and at the same time reduces our hydro bill.

Favourite Thing For Work

It would have to be my Phaff sewing machine. I love it because it is a reliable workhorse and it allows me to create my crafts.

Favourite Place in Vancouver

I have lots of fun taking my son to the Vancouver Aquarium. A great place to visit any time of year, the aquarium offers interest and excitement to kids of all ages.

Favourite Birthday Gift Idea

For kids it would have to be I See Me Books. For adults I enjoy giving custom hand stamped sterling silver necklaces from a local Vancouver company, 2unique.

Favourite Kids Book

Pig Pig Grows Up by David McPhail is my favourite kids book. I have fond memories of my mom reading it to me as a kid.

Favourite Restaurant

I absolutely love the food at Joeys on Broadway. I think the lettuce wraps are the best in the city.
