A themed birthday party takes planning and patience to put together. We've always encouraged our kids to be creative, so I encourage them to come up with a theme that says them.
Unfortunately, our boys never pick popular themes. Trust me, if my son wanted a Minion birthday we'd be well prepared. But, so far we've had a Treehouse Birthday, Fishing Birthday, Swamp Birthday and Lego Birthday. (Plus many, many more!) (READ MORE HERE) #BirthdayParty #BirthdayTheme #HowTo #Christ
This was certainly a fun test drive, although not sure how I'll fit the kids, two dogs and all the hockey gear. Perhaps a second vehicle should we need a sweet ride. Clearly the Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Cabriolet wasn't a very practical choice in our search for a new family vehicle, but it was a fun choice with an unforgettable ride. Out on the open road - heading out to enjoy an anniversary dinner with my husband in Priddis, AB, (out to Azuridge Estate Hotel) we had the top dow
As I continue my new car challenge with Lone Star Mercedes-Benz I've been test driving the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

She continues to explain, "This song came out of a desire to be heard and to be acknowledged and to en
When it came time for my family to choose a family car - as a mother - I was specifically looking for a vehicle that is safe and reliable. But, I didn't didn't want to compromise on style and performance.
Hi, this is Christina Rowsell. I've mentioned a time or two on my show on soft rock 97.7 that I've been looking for a new car. My husband and I have visited many dealerships and have seen so many options. But, when we stepped into Lone Star Mercedes-Benz it was different.

As a hockey mom, I know how expensive it is to give our children the opportunity to play hockey. Not only hockey, but any sport. Playing sports not only gives them the chance to learn the ins and outs of the game, but it's so important in make-up of who they'll become. From developing their physical strength to life long friends, the lessons of teamwork to improving their self-esteem.
Through KidSport™ Calgary - a local non-profit organization - families that thought they c
