If you don’t have plans yet for the weekend Modern Home Tours has returned to Vancouver! It’s your chance to be a socially acceptable gawker and meander through some of Vancouver’s finest, innovative home designs.

The tour is self-driving and self-paced which means you could spend the whole day in your favourite house (but probably shouldn’t). The Vancouver Home Tour takes place Saturday and then on Sunday a White Rock Home Tour.

I’ve always loved rubbing shoulders with people who go full out for any patriotic event: Painted Maple Leaf faces and flag bearing shoulders. However, I’m more of a subtlest and therefore smitten with this Glowing Hearts French Knot Bow Tie by Vancouver based company, Cursor and Thread.

I recently attended the Sports & Lifestyle Expo in Vancouver to check out Anita sport’s bras and the Dairy Farmers of Canada were also in attendance. My boys drink a lot of milk and let me tell you, I’m glad there’s someone producing milk other than me. Below is a video promotion, created by Dairy Farmer’s of Canada for a new healthy lifestyle app.

One of my deepest desires in homeschooling Levi is to foster an appreciation of art in him. It turns out it won’t be much of a challenge. He spends hours every day creating detailed drawings of his world. His work is amazing (I know I’m biased).

My first triathlon is in three days and my plans to prep and train have been thwarted by a stomach bug that has passed through our family like wildfire. Today is the first day that I feel like myself although my stomach is shrunken and so my appetite is not back. I don’t know exactly how to proceed and I’m more than disappointed that I won’t be competing at full strength. What would a coach say? Do your best? Throw in the towel for this tri?

Last week I had the wonderful experience of taking Levi on a tour of the Tom Burrows exhibit at The Belkin Art Gallery. We were given a private tour as I was writing about the exhibit but the icing on the cake was that we were able to meet Tom Burrows.

Last night my friend Carlie and I attended Between The Pages, An Evening With the Scotia Bank Giller Prize Finalists. It was the first time the event was hosted in Vancouver and proved to be a splendid evening for literature lovers. Scotiabank Giller Prize awards $100,000 annually to the author of the best Canadian novel or short story collection, and $10,000 to finalists.

On Sunday, November 2nd is G Day in Vancouver. G Day is a social movement anchored by day-long events that emphasize self-esteem and leadership for girls aged 10-12. The first G Day was on April 28th and was attended by 250 girls. Leading up to the event I was asked to write a story about my own adolescence for the G Day blog. This time around I thought I’d post my story here for Elasticpantcity readers.

Last week was Vancouver Fashion Week and while I had every intention of making it to several days of shows, I made it to about 5 on the first day. We started the week off with Ezra in the hospital for a toe infection and my spare moments have been spent cuddling him and doing homeschool with Jet and Levi.
